    How to exclude display/types or formats from DEDUP?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4
    • Relevant for Installation Type: MT, Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    To exclude display/type(s) or formats from DEDUP (e.g. display/type=map).

    1. Connect to the Primo Back Office

    2. Navigate to the DEDUP section of the Normalization Rules and edit the "dedup:t" rule [Advanced Configuration > Full Normalization Rule Configuration].

    3. Edit the
    Rule Group: dedup_t
    Source: Constant
    Value: 99
    Conditions: True / True
    Condition 1 - Source: PNX
    Value: display/type
    Success If: Match Any
    Routine: Check string equals string
    Parameter: map
    Transformation: Copy As Is
    Action: OR

    See attached example.

    NOTE: this rule is added as a rule #1; there should already be out-of-the-box values for rule #2 [dedup_t=1] and rule #2 [dedup_t=2].

    4. Perform a DEDUP normalization rule check on a record that has characteristics in 008 position 6 indicating "map".
    Refer to this for details:

    5. Once the normalization rule test passes (e.g. maps get dedup_t=99), Save/Deploy.

    NOTE: In order to correctly rebuild the DEDUP vectors, run update pipe and check the "Force DEDUP" checkbox.

    6. Navigate to the Pipe for the data source that will use these normalization rules [Monitor Primo Status > Pipe Monitoring] and run the "No Harvesting - Update DS" pipe.


    7. When step #6 is complete, navigate to the PNX Viewer and verify that the newly loaded data has dedup/t=99.

    8. For Multi tenant Direct customers: Wait until the next index and hotswap job are completed;  

        For Dedicated-Direct and Local hosted customers: Execute the index and hotswap job. 


    9. When step #8 is complete, do some test searches in the Primo Front End to verify that the display/type no longer dedups.
