Append Cluster Tool Icon Append Cluster Tool

The Append Cluster tool appends the cluster assignments from a K-Centroids Cluster Analysis Tool to a data stream. The data stream does not need to be the same one that the cluster solution is based on. However, it must contain the set of fields (with the same names, but not necessarily the same values) used to create the original cluster solution. Any field standardization that was done as part of constructing the original cluster solution will also be applied.

This tool uses the R tool. Go to Options > Download Predictive Tools and sign in to the Alteryx Downloads and Licenses portal to install R and the packages used by the R tool. See Download and Use Predictive Tools.
