Configuring the Searches

Configuring the Searches

You can define one or more searches for each index in the matching rules file. You can define searches within the
MDMBDRMMatchRuleSet
section.
To define a search, add the following parameters to the
SearchConfiguration
section within the
MDMBDRMMatchRuleSet
section:
searchType
Name for the search that you configure.
searchFieldName
Name of the columns based on which you want to generate key ranges to search records. If you specify multiple columns, use commas to separate them.
For example,
<searchFieldName>IDS_name,IDS_alias1,IDS_alias2</searchFieldName>
.
keyField
Required only if you use fuzzy keys for indexing. Name of the SSA-NAME3 field based on which you want to search records.
You can specify only one field as a key field in a configuration file. If you want to use other fields, you must configure another search .
searchLevel
Required only if you use fuzzy keys for indexing. Type of search that you want to perform. Use one of the following values:
  • Narrow
  • Typical
  • Exhaustive
  • Extreme
A search returns more candidates as the search level increases but uses more resources and takes a longer execution time.
AdditionalControl
Optional. Additional attributes that you want to configure. You can specify the following attributes:
  • NAMEFORMAT=L|R. Indicates whether the major word in a name or address is on the left end or the right end. For example, in Western names, the family name is on the right end of the names.
  • UNICODE_ENCODING. Specifies the Unicode format of the data that you use.
You can add additional
SearchConfiguration
sections within the
MDMBDRMMatchRuleSet
section to define multiple searches.
The following sample shows a search definition named Household:
<SearchConfiguration> <searchType>Household</searchType> <searchFieldName>PersonFullName</searchFieldName> <keyField>Person_Name</keyField> <searchLevel>Typical</searchLevel> <AdditionalControl/> </SearchConfiguration>
