You can run the duplicate check batch jobs to detect duplicate accounts, contacts, leads, and custom objects in the database. The duplicate check batch jobs compile a list of duplicate pairs. Each duplicate pair consists of a master record and a duplicate record.
The duplicate check batch jobs perform the following tasks:
Compares beans against other beans and master beans against other master beans that have the duplicate checked flag set to false.
Stores the duplicate pairs in the Duplicates table.
Sets the duplicate checked flag for the beans and the master beans to true.
You can run the following batch jobs to detect the duplicate records:
Detects the duplicate accounts. The duplicate check batch job matches a master bean against other master beans to identify the duplicate accounts.
Duplicate Contact Check

After you detect duplicates, you can view the duplicate pairs. You can select the

tab to view duplicate contact pairs, duplicate lead pairs, and duplicate custom object pairs.
You can run the batch jobs in the Jobs section of the
