Creating a reconciliation job

After you normalize the CIs in your data sets, a reconciliation job helps reconcile the duplicate CIs in the data sets and create the final production data set. A reconciliation job typically contains identify and merge activities that identify the duplicate CIs and merges them, based on the rules that you define. Optionally, you can add a purge activity to a reconciliation job to delete unwanted CIs in your environment, based on purge instances.

You can create a standard or a custom reconciliation job to reconcile the duplicate CIs. For a custom reconciliation job, you can define and use customized ID (identification) rules. 

Best practice

We recommend that you reconcile only CIs that have been normalized or that do not require normalization. To reconcile normalized CIs, enable the Process Normalized CIs Only option in the Create Job or Edit Job window.

The following topics explain how you can create these reconciliation jobs:
