Attaching the match rule to the data model

You need to attach the match rule MatchCustomer to the specific entity Customer of the data model Customer.


  1. In the MDM Repository tree view, open the data model Customer to which you want to attach the match rule MatchCustomer.
  2. Select the entity Customer to which you want to attach the match rule and, in the Properties view, open the Rules tab.
  3. In the Match Rule section, select the match rule you want to attach to this data model from the drop-down list.
    If needed, click Open Match Rule to open and view the details of the match rule.
  4. In the table, map each match key to the corresponding simple type element at the root level in the entity using the selection window.
    In this example, the match key Firstname is mapped to Customer/fname, and the match key Lastname is mapped to Customer/lname.
  5. Save your changes.


Now you need to deploy the data model Customer to the MDM server to take into account the changes you have made, so that the match rule is deployed together with the data model to which it is attached.
