Analysis statuses and results

There are various analysis states you'll need to understand when running Contracts Analysis. Reviewed here are the statuses and details around the analysis and the functions of the Management Console, the processing status, the Contracts analysis document list, and supported file types. All are in the Contracts Analysis Set layout.

Analysis statuses

To review the status of your analysis set, navigate to Contracts Analysis Set in the Contracts tab and click on the name of your analysis set.

Management console

The following options appear on the management console:

  • Analyze—initiates the analysis.
  • Retry Errors—restarts the analysis if errors were detected. This should be the initial troubleshooting step to restart the analysis if not all documents were analyzed due to an error.
  • Refresh Page—provides the most up-to-date status of the analysis. Click this icon to refresh the page instead of the refresh button in your browser.

Processing status

This section includes details about the progress of analyzed documents, status results, the last error of an analysis.


Provides a general status update on the progress of analyzed documents. Statuses include the following:

  • Waiting
  • Processing
  • Completed
  • Completed with errors
  • Canceled OR Canceling


Provides more details for Status results. Details include the following:

  • Document(s) remaining—the number of documents in the analysis queue.
  • Document(s) processing—the number of documents to be analyzed.
  • Document(s) completed—the number of successfully analyzed documents.
  • Document(s) canceled—the number of canceled documents prompted by the user.
  • Document(s) excluded—the number of excluded documents due to an Unsupported File Type.
  • Document(s) with errors—the number of documents with errors that weren't analyzed.

Contracts analysis document

The Contracts Analysis Document list found at the bottom of the analysis set page displays all the documents included in the analysis. Documents sort by control numbers and display their analysis status based on the last analysis run.

In the Job Status column, you can click into the status for more details. For example, you can click into the job status to see reasons for excluded documents or errors. For errors specifically the Suggestion field and a longer error message indicate what may have gone wrong.

Supported file types

The Supported File Types list lets you whitelist file types for Contracts analysis. PDFs and Word documents are best for analysis. However, the full list of 94 supported file types is visible upon creating a new Contracts analysis set. To add file types to the list of those that Contracts will run analysis on, click the Link button.

Note: Contracts will exclude contracts that aren't Contracts-supported file types. It will not exclude contracts for the sole reason that they do not have the Relativity native file type populated. If this value is blank, Contracts will still analyze the document. If it's populated, Contracts will adhere to your supported file type selections.


The Contracts Classification and Contracts Segmentation views included with Contracts are starting points to review Contracts analysis results. If you'd like to customize these views, copy and edit them or create your own custom views to meet your project needs.

Contracts Classification view
