Syndicating Default Key Record only


Scenario (Record in DM):

Customer Number, Remote SYstem, Remote Value

1001, ECC, 111 (Default)

1001, ECC, 222

When I last worked on MDM Syndicator, output I received was: 1001, ECC, 111 (it used to syndicate only default key)

While today when I work, I see both the records being syndicated. There are requirements in project wherein I need to send both records while in some cases send only default one. How do I achieve syndicating only default key record?

    Hi Devashish,

    Syndicating the default value along with the Remote key will be dependent on the Mapping done in the map.

    If you map the Value field in the Source structure in the syndicator to a Destination field,then it will include the Local field as well.

    If you map just the Remote key field form the source to the destination field then it will include the Remote key or in other words the global key.

    But this is possible only when your destination structure format is a flat file where in you can create the destination items

    If you are using the XML schema then you do not have the provision to map the value field from the source to the destination as well as the Remote key field.As both of them actually acrry the sam einfor just that one is local and the other global.

    Hope it helped

      Hi Devashish ,

      I had the same issue.I had to import changes to different fields ito different ports ,I had created two ports and different syndication map for both ,but when i changed any field in datamanger and saved ..two xml's were generated (instead of one)..

      This was with settings that XML should be generated automatically..

      I think the way MDM syndiactor works is ..It fires up XML for any change in record and NOT FIELD specific..

      I hope i have not confused you..

      A way round to this (not actually feasible) to manually syndicate the record..that is Open the syndicator and corresponding map and select record to be syndicated and execute ..
