Match Rule Editor

The Match Rule Editor allows you to develop match rules.


At times, it could be challenging to write match rules by using JSON.

The Match Rules Editor feature within the Data Modeler allows you to create and modify basic match rules without having to depend on a skillset of writing JSON code and use of a JSON editor. The Rule Builder within the editor is intuitive and enables you to develop a match rule easily by selecting attributes, match rule comparison operators, comparator classes, and match token classes. The editor also offers the Advanced Editor where you can write JSON code, if needed, for more complex functionality.


The Match Rule Editor offers the following key benefits:

  • Configure match rules with little or no knowledge of JSON configuration syntax.
  • Use the Analyzer tool to holistically analyze your rule set for redundancy and inefficiencies.
  • Dramatically reduce your match rule development time.


  • A Rules builder provides the framework for you to create a match rule using item selections rather than writing JSON code.
  • Supports use of And/And not/Or/Or not operators.
  • Supports the Reltio Name Dictionary to enable matching on synonyms of first names.
  • Supports ignoreInToken to suppress token generation for selected attributes.
  • The logical version of the rule you developed is displayed for review in compact form.
  • An Advanced Editor that synthesizes the JSON equivalent code block for the selections made within the Rules Builder, but allows you to add code for features of the match framework that are not yet supported by the Rules Builder.
    Important: Subsequent modifications made in the Advanced Editor that are not supported in the Rules Builder will suppress any further use of the Rules Builder for the rule.
