Configuring standard precedence rules for reconciliation

Standard precedence rules define precedence values for CDM classes and attributes. You can modify the standard precedence rules, or you can add new rules. For example, if you have created class or attribute, you can add a precedence for it. When you modify the standard precedence rules, you change the rules for all datasets and all jobs that use the standard precedence rules.

To know more about precedence rule, watch the following video:


Before you begin

Understand how precedence values are used in Merge activities for more information see, Standard identification and precedence rules for reconciliation jobs.

You can edit, add, or delete precedence rules for reconciliation using one of the following options:

Using the Standard Rules Editor

New Precedence set

  1. From the Reconciliation console, click Standard Rules Editor.
  2. In the Precedence tab, click Add or Remove Datasets from the Columns icon on the right to select the datasets that you would like to be displayed in the columns.
  3. Select the check box against the datasets that you would like to view, and close the box.
  4. If you are unable to locate the required class/attribute click on the Show All Classes and Attributes icon to display all the classes and attributes from all namespaces.
  5. From the Precedence Object column, navigate to the class or attribute to which you want to set a precedence rule.
    1. To add a rule - In the dataset column, double click the cell where you want to add the rule.
    2. To edit a rule - In the dataset column, double click the cell where you want to edit the existing rule.
    3. To delete a rule - In the dataset column, double click the cell where you want to edit the existing rule. Delete the value entered in the cell.
  6. To add or edit numeric value use the input slider, click 'X' to confirm the input and close. Alternatively, you can also type the numeric value in the cell and press enter.

The precedence rule is displayed in the cell that you added or modified.

Note:

If you click on any class or attribute displayed in the Precedence Object column, the Dataset order pane displays the datasets in which that class or attribute appears in the order of precedence.

Using the Merge Precedence Set Editor

  1. From the Reconciliation console, select the required dataset, and then click Edit Job.
  2. Select the Merge activity and then click Edit Activity.
  3. In the Job Editor window, click View/Edit Preference Set.
  4. From the Precedence Object column, navigate to the class or attribute to which you want to set a precedence rule.
    1. To add a rule - In the dataset column, double click the cell where you want to add the rule.
    2. To edit a rule - In the dataset column, double click the cell where you want to edit the existing rule.
    3. To delete a rule - In the dataset column, double click the cell where you want to edit the existing rule. Delete the value entered in the cell.
  5. To add or edit numeric value use the input slider. Alternatively, you can also type the numeric value in the cell and press enter. You can click the down arrow to select the following options:
    1. Defer if Null (For a detailed conceptual information on this feature see, Handling NULL values)
