If you are using the Managed Environment, you could skip the next paragraph about Super organisation.
When Dega is installed and started for the first time, it automatically creates a
Super organisation which has admin permissions to manage the entire Dega instance. Name of the organisation is managed by the env variable:
SUPER_ORGANISATION_TITLE and if you haven't changed the env file as mentioned in the installation guide, the super organisation created will have the name:
Also, a super organisation is only created during the startup if the value
CREATE_SUPER_ORGANISATION is set to
true. The startup process will skip creating a super organisation, if the value is set to
false or if an organisation with the name exists already.
#Step 1: Create Space
Space is a concept that is consistent with other applications developed at Factly Labs. Following are a few basic concepts that you would want to know about spaces before getting started.
- Each organisation can have multiple spaces.
- Every website needs at least one space.
- Users within an organisation are managed in Kavach. User access to entities within a space is managed through policies.
Dega supports creating multiple spaces within an organisation that can be managed through the
Spaces menu item. To begin using the Dega, you need to create your first space within an organisation.The fields are self-explanatory but you can check claimant section for more details.
#Step 2: Create Formats
Once the Space is created, the user then needs to create Formats for that space from the
Formats menu item by clicking on the
Create Default Formats button. The default formats that are created are mandatory for Dega to function as expected would be:
- Fact Check
#Step 3: Create Policies and Roles
Once the Space is created, the user then needs to create Policies for that space from the
Policies menu item by clicking on the
Create Default Policies button. The default policies that are created and are mandatory for Dega to function as expected would be:
#Step 4: Create Events
This is an optional step. Clicking on the
Create Default Events will create the default
Events that are supported in Dega. Setting up Hukz to manage outgoing webhooks is mandatory for events to be created and work as expected.
#Step 5: Create Ratings
Once the Space is created, the user then needs to create Ratings for that space from the
Ratings menu item. Different organisations have a different rating mechanisms and you can read more about here. The ratings added here will be available when fact-checking the videos. If you are not sure on what rating system to follow, you can click on
Create Default Ratings that creates default ratings as defined in Dega.
The default ratings created would be:
- Partly True
#Step 6: Create Claimants
Every Fact Check will have a claimant. So, lets add a claimant from the
claimant menu. The fields are self-explanatory but you can check claimant section for more details.
#Step 7: Create Fact Checks
You can start creating your first Fact Check by clicking on
Create New button from the Fact Checks menu.
#Create New Fact Check
- Navigate to the Fact Check Menu
- Click on
Create Newbutton to getting started with creating a new fact check
