Invocation of SDQ from External Callers
You can invoke SDQ from external callers to perform data matching. You can use the Value Match method of the DeDuplication business service to:
- Match data in field/value pairs against the data within Siebel business components
- Prevent duplicate data from getting into the Siebel application through non-UI data streams
You can also invoke SDQ from external callers to perform data cleansing. There are three preconfigured Data Cleansing business service methods—Get Siebel Fields, Parse, and Parse All. Using an external caller, such as scripting or a workflow process, you first invoke the Get Siebel Fields method, and then invoke the Parse method to cleanse contacts and accounts.
The Parse All method is used automatically during data cleansing batch jobs, but calling Parse All from an external caller is not supported for this release.
