About Primary Key Match Rules

About Primary Key Match Rules

Matching on primary keys can be used when two or more different source systems for a base object have identical primary key values.
This situation occurs infrequently in source systems, but when it does occur, you can make use of the primary key matching option in
Informatica MDM Hub
to rapidly match and automatically consolidated records from the source systems that have the matching primary keys.
For example, two systems might use the same set of customer IDs. If both systems provide information about customer XYZ123 using identical primary key values, the two systems are certainly referring to the same customer and the records should be automatically consolidated.
When you specify a primary key match, you simply specify which source systems that have the same primary key values. You also check the
Auto-merge matching records
check box to have
Informatica MDM Hub
automatically consolidate matching records when a Merge or Link batch job is run.
