Configuring Base Objects

Configuring Base Objects

In the MDM Hub, central business entities such as customers, accounts, or products, are represented in tables called base objects. A base object is a table in the Hub Store that contains collections of data about individual entities.
Each entity has a single master record. The master record is the best version of the truth. An individual entity might have records in the base object that contain multiple versions of the truth that need to be consolidated into the master record. Consolidation is the process of merging duplicate records into a single consolidated record that contains the most reliable cell values from all of the source records.
Use the Schema Manager in the Hub Console to define base objects. You cannot configure them directly in the database.
When you make changes to the schema, metadata validation generates a warning and the MDM Hub adds an entry to the C_REPOS_MET_VALID_RESULT table.
