This section provides the step-by-step instructions you need in order to add object profiles to the master index database. When you add an object profile, you are actually creating a system record. The master index application calculates the SBR portion of the object profile when you commit the system record to the database. Adding an object profile includes the following steps:
Before you begin to add a new object to the master index application, you should obtain certain information about the object. If necessary, review the fields displayed on the pages of the EDM to learn what types of information you should know. You should provide as much information as is available for each object.
Each object profile is associated with at least one system record. Before you add data to an object profile, you must specify the object’s local ID in a specific system. This creates the system record component of the object profile.
Figure 32 Create System Record - System and Local ID
The Create System Record page appears.
Note - The name of the Local ID field might have been modified for your use. See your system administrator for more information.
The page changes to display parent object fields.
When you add a new object profile to the master index database, you need to enter certain information about the object. The required information varies depending on the type of objects in the index and the configuration of the application.
Figure 33 Create System Record - Parent Object
The parent object of the system record appears.
After you specify information for the parent object in the object profile, you can add child objects to the profile.
Figure 34 Create System Record - Child Objects
The page changes to display the fields associated with that child object type.
For example, if you are adding an address, click Add Address.
After you specify all the required information for an object profile, save the profile to the database or the information you entered will be lost.
A confirmation dialog box appears.
Note - The confirmation dialog box informs you whether a new profile was added to the database, a new profile was added and it has potential duplicates, or an existing profile was updated with the information you entered.
The new object profile is saved to the database.
