    What is the purpose of the Supplier Match Batch Feature? How to utilize this feature?

    Under Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations, what is the purpose of Batch: Match Configuration Parameters?

    This question arose, because after following the Oracle setup documentation (all steps of Implementing-Procurement.pdf > Enabling Supplier Match: Explained), I obtained results after defining Real-Time Match Configuration Parameters, BUT I do not know where in the system the Batch Match Configuration Parameters are utilized. Would it be a scheduled process that runs?

     

    The Oracle Implementing Procurement manual does not provide any detail about the purpose of the Batch feature. I have not been able to find additional insight anywhere else.

     

    Thanks, Catherine

      Batch match feature is not currently supported in supplier management flows.

        I have updated knowledge from an SR with a Sales Cloud specialist.

        I was searching for Procurement Cloud-specific data, thinking this setup task was unique to Procurement Cloud. The task 'Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations' is shared with Sales Cloud. Therefore some features I see are still not available in supplier management flows.

        As directed in the Oracle Doc implementing-procurement.pdf, my route of navigation was always: Setup and Maintenance > Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations. This led me to falsely believe that Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations was related only to supplier management lows in Procurement Cloud.

        It'd be helpful for the Oracle documentation, implementing-procurement, to include insight on the fact that 'Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations' is a shared task. It is not clear in any of the documentation and I completed a thorough search, asked other Oracle implementation experts before coming to this conclusion.

      Thanks Hong.

      Since this feature is listed under "Define Supplier Match" I would have thought it had a purpose related to Supplier Management.

      Does you comment mean that there is no value in defining this Supplier Batch Match criteria? Can I expect in the future it is a possible feature?
