    How are the relationships between entities established?  I assume there is a unique identifier that is shared to link the entities.  Is that correct and how can I configure that?

    Hi Bill,

    You are correct - there is a unique identifier in addition to a source that identifies the relationship between two entities.  We call this the relationship crosswalk.  This is passed into Reltio through the API's in which a user defines the identifier / source to be passed in as the crosswalk value in addition to the start and end objects they are looking to create the relationship for.    


    Thanks!

    Thanks, Pete!  Is there documentation I can access that can walk me through building the relationship between two entities via this API?

    Absolutely.

    This first link provides a good overview of the Relations API in addition to a good example:
    https://docs.reltio.com/en/explore/get-going-with-apis-and-rocs-utilities/reltio-rest-apis/model-apis/relations-api

    This second link provides some additional examples:
    https://docs.reltio.com/en/explore/get-going-with-apis-and-rocs-utilities/reltio-rest-apis/model-apis/relations-api/create-relationships


    Lastly, here is an example API that I pulled from postman:


    POST {TenantURL}/relations

    Body:
    [
      {
        "type""configuration/relationTypes/Household",
        "attributes": {
          "VendorNumber": [
            {
              "value""VENDOR_NUMBER"
            }
          ]
        },
        "crosswalks": [
          {
            "type""configuration/sources/SAP_MDG",
            "value""0001010215"
          }
        ],
        "startObject": {
          "crosswalks": [
            {
              "type""configuration/sources/SAP_MDG",
              "value""0001010215_HH"
            }
          ]
        },
        "endObject": {
          "crosswalks": [
            {
              "type""configuration/sources/SAP_MDG",
              "value""0001010215"
            }
          ]
        }
      }
    ]


    Thanks!
