    Hi Team,

    Can you please help us with the resolution of the below usecase.

    Use Case : We are loading Organization data in Reltio from multiple sources and we are also enriching that data using Reltio D&B connector. We can create Hierarchies and Relationships during the enrichment process and it will create the upward family linkage which can be optionally brought in, constructed automatically during the account enrichment process, and visualized as a parent/child hierarchy. In our project the specific ask from the client is to not create any parent/child hierarchy because if we create parent child hierarchy then the corresponding parent/child profiles will get created in the tenant which is restricted here but we need to store the hierarchical data in Reltio (without creating profile). So to achieve this requirement we can store this hierarchical information either in Nested attributes or reference Attributes. In a small discussion with Reltio we got the suggestion If we create reference entity it would be easy to master and update in 1 place. Example we get Walmart as global parent for 20 records, storing as reference entity will help us to modify Walmart to Walmart Corp at only 1 place

    • Ask 1: Verification of Understanding: Please validate our understanding that the native connectors, such as the Reltio D&B connector (getMatch and getCompanyDetails api), will be able to store data in Reltio MDM Entity as nested attributes.
    • Ask 2: Inquiry on Hierarchical Information Storage: We would like to know if there is any Reltio native connector available that stores Hierarchy information as a reference attribute.
    • Ask 3: Implementation Guidance: We seek Reltio's additional guidance on how to best implement this solution using a reference attribute to avoid the creation of new profiles. Could you provide us with best practices, steps, or strategies to achieve this?

    Hi,

    D&B Connector will create the entity profiles for the Parent/HQ, DU, and GU and then create relationship with site/branch that is getting enrichment. There is no way to create such profiles as nested attributes. The reason is you can enrich the Parent/HQ, DU and GU also separately. So answer to Ask 1 is getCompanyDetails will create the profiles and not nested attributes.

    For Ask 2, hierarchy data cannot be shown in reference attribute - how will you show the parent child relationship in reference attribute. Also even for reference attributes profiles need to be created. 

    For Ask 3, can you share more details why new profile creation need to be avoided? Is there no use case for enriching the parent, du and gu? 

    Regards

    Gaurav

    If I understood your requirement clearly, ask is to store Hierarchy details without creating new profiles. This can be achieved with minimal customization in new D&B datablocks connector https://docs.reltio.com/en/integrate/reltio-data-enrichment-integrations/reltio-enrichment-with-db-data-blocks
    Regarding reference attribute: As Gaurav mentioned reference attribute are nothing but reference of another records hence you can't have a reference attribute without actually creating the profile.

    Hi @Ashish Rawat,

    This is to inquire about the integration specifics of our current OOTB D&B datablocks recipe. Specifically, I am interested in understanding whether the mapping of Reltio attributes to D&B attributes is included as part of the standard configuration of this recipe. Or we need to perform JOLT transformation mapping in a similar note of  OOTB Real-time D&B Reltio API.

    Hi Avni,
    Data Blocks mappings to Reltio's velocity pack are included in the recipes and customer can modify further as needed.

    Team, I'm glad to assist with any help needed for the D&B Data Block services or the elements they return.  From a D&B perspective the elements to be received through the new Reltio connector are defined based on the Data Blocks available.

    Regards,
