EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN

EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN

The EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN rule selects a column value from a row that fulfills the specified condition. The specified condition can be based on another column.
For example, use the City value of a record as the preferred column value if the Department column value of the record is equal to Human Resources.
The following table displays a sample cluster and indicates the rule-level preferred record:
Cluster ID
Employee Name
City
Age
Department

Column-level preferred record
Redwood City is the preferred column value because it is part of the row that contains Human Resources as the Department column value.
Use the following format to configure an EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN rule:
<ColumnRules> <ColumnRule name="<Rule name>" rule="EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN" columnName="<Primary column name"> <ReferenceColumn columnName="Reference column name"><Matching value></ReferenceColumn> </ColumnRule> </ColumnRules>
The format uses the following parameters:
Rule name
Unique name for the rule.
Primary column name
Name of the column based on which you want to configure the rule.
Reference column name
Name of the column in which you want to search for the matching value.
Matching value
Value to search in the secondary column. The consolidation process identifies the record that contains the specified column value and then uses the primary column value from the selected record as the preferred column value.
The following sample EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN rule indicates to use the City value as the preferred column value if the Department column value is equal to Human Resources:
<ColumnRules> <ColumnRule name="OTHEREQ_RULE1" rule="EQUALS_OTHER_COLUMN" columnName="City"> <ReferenceColumn columnName="Department">Human Resources</ReferenceColumn> </ColumnRule> </ColumnRules>
