Building a Taxonomy

Taxonomy is the Alation way of creating hierarchy between articles. Taxonomy creates a relationship between two articles in what is commonly referred to as a tree view.

When you edit an article, you can create a new relationship or add it to an existing one.

Alation defines relationships between articles as parent and child. The child sits below the parent in the hierarchy. Here is an example.
