    Title:
    Contact Duplicate Identification and Address Duplicate Identification
    Summary:
    What is the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification" ?
    Content:

    Under Define Supplier Matching > Manage Enterprise Data Quality Matching Configurations, what is the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification" ?

    This question arose, because after following the Oracle setup documentation (all steps of Implementing-Procurement.pdf > Enabling Supplier Match: Explained), I obtained results after setup of 'Account Duplicate Identification' BUT no results after setup for 'Contact Duplicate Identification' or 'Address Duplicate Identification'. The 'Account Duplicate Identification' setup provided results when testing in the system or testing Actions > Review Configuration Results.

     

    My results are in a system with multiple suppliers, duplicate information within multiple supplier records, and duplicate information within one supplier record.

     

    The Oracle Implementing Procurement manual does not provide any detail about the purpose of "Contact Duplicate Identification" or "Address Duplicate Identification". I have not been able to find additional insight anywhere else.

     

    Thanks, Catherine

      "Contact Duplicate Identification" and "Address Duplicate Identification" are not currently utilized by supplier management flows.  Please reach out to EDQ team (Enterprise Data Quality) for more details on these functionality.

        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.pdf, 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, Catherine

      Thanks for your response Hong.

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

      How do you suggest contacting the EDQ team? SR?
