Save time and improve accuracy by quickly transforming text queries into actionable visual insights, enhancing your decision-making process.

Ardoq's "Create AI viewpoint" functionality is powered by Microsoft’s Azure Open AI Service. Find out more about AI and innovation in Ardoq in this KB article.

We’d love your feedback! Share your thoughts on "Create new AI viewpoint" by completing our brief survey.

How to Enable AI Functionality in Your Organization

To access “Create new AI viewpoint”, "Refreshed Ardoq design and new Viewpoint builder" and "Create viewpoints with AI" need to be enabled in your organization. You can check from the Preferences menu > Organization settings > Feature settings. These settings are available to admin users only.

If you don’t see the "AI Features" section in "Feature settings" available, contact your CSM to sign the updated Data Processing Agreement (DPA), which will unlock AI functionalities in Ardoq.

How to Automatically Create Viewpoints

To prompt the AI to create viewpoints:

  1. Head over to the Viewpoints module on the left-side navigation bar

  2. Open an existing viewpoint or create a new one

  3. Once in the view, right-click on a component and select “Create new AI viewpoint”

  4. Type in your question and press enter. Alternatively, select one of the suggested queries.

  5. See the new visualization that answers your query.

Please note: All users can create viewpoints with AI but only admin and writer users can save viewpoints.

Version History

Version 1.0 (3 Jun 2024)

The current version of the prompt-based AI-generated traversals has some limitations:

  • It doesn't factor reference types.

  • It doesn't have good support for ordering of questions. For instance, "What servers do the applications which impact this initiative run on?" is a harder question for the AI to answer than "What servers does this application run on?"

  • It doesn't support general questions like "all references around this component".

These problems are actively being worked on. The best way to get good results with the current implementation is to think about asking for related component types, and the AI will seek the closest relationships to those component types.

As ever, please help us improve by completing our brief survey or by submitting feedback through our in-app chat for the prompts you'd like us to support!
