Automatic feature engineering: including and excluding features
Is there a simple way to explicitly exclude certain features from optimization / selection process? Which means, I want to run feature selection, but I have a few features that I want to leave in a feature set no matter what, so they are not automatically removed during selection.
UPDATE: I have actually found a workaround, however it complicates the process flow a bit: using SET ROLE to change role of given attributes from regular to smth else, and then change it back to regular before training final model and applying it to test subset:
This also requires that APPLY FEATURE SET keeps originals and makes special role for them:
So far, my concern is whether it would be more convenient just to have an additional setting in AUTOMATIC FEATURE ENGINEERING operator to explicitly exclude or include a certain attributes subset?
