Overriding Population Rules

Overriding Population Rules

SSA-NAME3 includes the ability to override certain types of Population Rules. There are two levels at which these overrides can be managed.
Using the
Population Override Manager
, a data analyst trained in the syntax of the SSA-NAME3 Edit rules, and versed in the consequences of making changes that may effect search and match quality and performance, and possibly require indexes to be rebuilt, can add or remove Edit rules from the Population set. Through this utility, the analyst can also replace the packaged Frequency tables with ones built from the organization’s own data.
Using the
Edit Rule Wizard
, a business or non-IT user can safely add certain types of Edit rules, typically new nicknames or synonyms, new noise words, or new phrase replacement rules, without requiring involvement from IT or the need to re-build indexes.
