Consolidation is a process of merging data from all the beans linked to a master bean to create a golden record. You can run the consolidation batch job to consolidate the records.
Cloud Customer 360 (
) uses data from the Salesforce objects and from external sources, such as SAP, ERP, or Oracle. The consolidation batch job consolidates the data from multiple beans and updates the master bean with the consolidated data to create golden records. Before you run the consolidation batch job, you can run the matching batch job to find the master bean that is the best match for each bean.
The consolidation batch job uses the data source settings and the enrichment settings if enrichment is enabled. Enrichment is the process of enhancing Salesforce records with consolidated data from the master beans after you run the consolidation batch job. Enrichment is part of the consolidation process if you enable it.
