Excluding Records from the Match Process

Excluding Records from the Match Process

Informatica MDM Hub
provides a mechanism for selectively excluding records from the match process. You might want to do this if, for example, your data contained records that you wanted the match process to ignore.
To configure this feature, in the Schema Manager, you add a column named EXCLUDE_FROM_MATCH to a base object. This column must be an integer type with a default value of zero (0).
Once the table is populated and before running the Match job, to exclude a record from matching, change its value in the EXCLUDE_FROM_MATCH column to a one (1) in the Data Manager. When the Match job runs, only those records with an EXCLUDE_FROM_MATCH value of zero (0) will be tokenized and processed—all other records will be ignored.
Excluding records from the match process is available for:
  • Both exact-match base objects and fuzzy-match base objects
  • Match column rules only (not primary key match rules) that do not match for duplicates
