Distinct Source Systems

Distinct Source Systems

You can designate a source system as a
distinct source
(also known as a
golden source
), which means that records from that source will not be merged. For example, if the ABC source has been designated as a distinct source, then the match rules will never match (or merge) two records that come from the same source. Records from a distinct source will not match through a transient match in an Auto Match and Merge process. Such records can be merged only manually by flagging them as matches.
To designate a distinct source system:
  1. From the list of source systems on the Merge Settings tab, select (check) any source system that should not allow intra-system merges to prevent records from merging.
  2. For each distinct source system, designate whether you want it to use Auto Rules only.
