Example of the Merge Records Process
You want to merge accounts A1 and A2 into A1. These accounts might have child quotation marks or associated contacts. These relationships are defined using one-to-many or many-to-many links. The following describes what happens after the merge:
- Account A2 is deleted after the merge.
- The contacts associated with A2 are associated with A1 after the merge.
The links defined between the business components are used to implement the merge algorithm. The algorithm used by the merge process at the OM layer is explained below for one-to-many and many-to-many links.
