Standard reconciliation identification and merge job settings

The standard reconciliation job is configured by default.

You can modify these settings as needed. The following table describes the default settings for identification in the standard job.

Default identification settings

Setting

Description

Default value

Status

Defines whether the Identify activity can execute (Active or Inactive).

Active

Continue on Error

Specifies whether the Identify activity continues to run if an error occurs in this activity.

No Note:This is automatically set to Yes if Continuous is selected.

Production Dataset

Specifies the dataset with instances used to identify matching instances in other datasets. Note:The production dataset is typically the same as the target dataset in a Merge activity.

BMC.ASSET

Generate IDs

For CIs in the production dataset that have a Reconciliation ID of 0, specifies whether to assign an ID.

No

Exclude Subclasses

Defines whether to use explicit identification rulesets for each class.

  • Yes — Requires that an identification ruleset be specified for every class and subclass.
  • No — Applies the identification ruleset for a class to all of its subclasses. You can still specify individual rulesets for any class.

No

Source Dataset

Specifies the dataset with instances compared to those in the production dataset.

Defined by you during job creation

Qualification Set

Specifies the qualifications that restricts the instances participating in a reconciliation activity. An instance that meets one or more of the qualifications in the set participates in an activity where that set is used.

Empty

The following table describes the default settings for merging in the standard job.


Default merge settings

Setting

Description

Default value

Status

Defines whether the Merge activity can execute (Active or Inactive).

Active

Continue on Error

Specifies whether the Merge activity continues to run if an error occurs in this activity.

No

Precedence Association

Defines the precedence values for classes and attributes.

Generated

Include Unchanged CIs

Defines whether to perform an incremental merge on attributes.

  • Yes — Merges all attributes even if their value has not changed in the source dataset since the last time this Merge activity ran.
  • No — Merges only the attributes that changed value in the source dataset since the last run and instances that were created in the source dataset since the last run. To improve performance, select this option.

No

Target Dataset

Specifies the dataset into which data is updated from the source dataset in a Merge activity. Note:The target dataset is typically the same as the production dataset in an Identify activity.

BMC.ASSET

Dataset

Specifies the dataset from which data is used to update the target dataset in a Merge activity.

Defined by you during job creation

Qualification Set

Specifies the qualifications that restricts the instances participating in a reconciliation activity. An instance that meets one or more of the qualifications in the set participates in an activity where that set is used.

Empty

Defer if Null

Determines whether a NULL value in the highest-precedence source dataset is merged to the target dataset. See Creating a reconciliation Identify activity.

Yes

Append To Lists

Specifies whether the list values from the source dataset overwrite the list in the target dataset.

No

Dataset Precedence Value

Specifies the overall precedence assigned to a dataset.

Defined in standard rules.

Require Explicit Precedences

Specifies whether to require explicit Precedence entries for attributes or to apply the class precedence to attributes that have no assigned precedence.

No

Precedence Value

Specifies a precedence for a particular class or attribute.

Defined in standard rules.
