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 must define and use custom ID (identification) rules.
When running standard reconciliation jobs, use standard identification and merge rules that are provided out of the box. When creating custom reconciliation jobs, create and use custom identification and merge rules.
If you are migrating from an older version of BMC CMDB and if a custom job uses a standard rule, you must delete those jobs and recreate the custom job with custom rules.
After recreating the jobs, perform the migration tasks.
