Simple and Advanced Matching

Simple and Advanced Matching

You can perform simple or advanced matching based on the parameters that you configure in the configuration file and the matching rules file. Simple matching uses a single column as index and one or more matching rules for each index. Advanced matching uses multiple columns as indexes and one or more matching rules for each index.
In the configuration file, you can define a single column as index and a matching rule for the index. In the matching rules file, you can define one or more columns as indexes and one or more matching rules for each index.
The following image shows how to decide whether you must create the configuration file or the matching rules and configuration files based on the matching type:
If you want to perform simple matching that uses single index and a single matching rule, create the configuration file. If you want to perform simple matching that uses single index and multiple matching rules, create the configuration file and the matching rules file.
If you want to perform advanced matching, create the configuration file and the matching rules file. The rules in the matching rules file override the rules in the configuration file.
