Resource topic index en
The resource topic index is used to match resources, such as data records and web pages, on external sites and applications to topics within Freebase. Typically, this index will be used to show topic data in external application -- perhaps a structured topic information displayed on an article that is primarily about that topic.An index represents the intersection of a topic type (such as film, book) and the index manager (say an external publisher or application developer). For instance, if publisher X wants to create an index from their movie reviews to film topics in Freebase, it would be an index. If they wanted to do books as well, that would be a distinct index.Special care must be given to write protection. The Resource topic index instance should be write protected to a user or user group controlled by the index manager. The master property for "Index items" is on this type, so the collection of index items will be write protected, along with all other properties on this type.The "Approval timestamp" property is used to mark the last time data in the entire set was approved by the index manager. The "Properties used" property points to all properties that will be shown in the third party application. For example, an index of films, this might be the release date, image, director and performances (name is always assumed.) These are used as part of the "Approval timestamp" vetting process. An application (to be written) will display changes to any index item that has a modified value in any of these properties. The manager screens any changes since the last template, fixes any problems and then updates the timestamp so the latest version of these properties will be shown in their third party application.
