D&B Connector Switches

D&B connector switches control the behavior of D&B Connector.

D&B Connector endpoint has header parameters where you can configure D&B Connector switches. These switches control the behavior of D&B Connector and has an impact on status codes that generates on enriching the organization's data with the latest D&B data.

Table 1. D&B Connector Switches
D&B Connector Switches Default Value Description
mergeOrgsWithSameDUNS false When a connector applies data from DnB, the Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) for an incoming entity already includes another entity. During the match process when the DnB assigns the same DUNS to different organization in Reltio, all the entities with equal DUNS are merged into one entity after the connector updates the data in Reltio.

If the value of mergeOrgsWithSameDUNS is true, the connector continues to work. The entities will be merged by crosswalk.

Otherwise, the connector stops updating an entity. An error is displayed in the incoming entity.

An unexpected merging of data can happen if there is an incorrect matching on the DnB side.
Note: By default, the value of the flag is false.

In the rectification mode, this flag has no effect as the match has already passed and the connector sends the original DUNS to the DnB. This response is treated as correct information based on incoming DUNS.

This flag cannot prevent merge by crosswalks. The connector applies data using crosswalk type DnB and value of the DUNS. Any entities with crosswalks type as DnB and the value of the DUNS that is equal to the incoming DUNS will be merged by crosswalks in the connector operation result.

minConfidenceCode 7 If the value of minConfidenceCode is 7 or greater than 7, then the organization’s data is appended or enriched with the latest D&B data.

If the value of minConfidenceCode is less than 7, then the organization’s data is not appended or enriched with the latest D&B data. In fact, the status of such records reflects Low Confidence Code.
