Field normalization Field Normalization includes two features: normalization and transformation. Normalization forces the platform to convert different forms of the same field value to a single, accepted value automatically. By forcing a field to use a simple, recognizable description for multiple variations of the same thing, normalization can eliminate duplicate records and make searches easier. In addition to reconciling different forms of the same value in fields, normalization can be configured to adjust queries automatically to return normalized results. Transformation enables an administrator to transform raw field input into standardized values that are more meaningful to an organization. An example of a standardized value might be to round RAM size in configuration items to a whole number, such as 4000 MB instead of 4112 MB. Transformations are controlled by parameters and conditions and can be configured to return transformed values in queries. Activate the field normalization pluginThe Field Normalization plugin is published and can be activated by a user with the admin role.Installed with field normalizationWhat components are installed with Field Normalization.Field type behaviorField types determine which fields are available for normalization and which transform categories are used.Normalize a fieldField normalization converts different varieties of the same field value, to a single, preferred value.Field transformationsField transformations enable an administrator to transform raw field input into standardized values that are more meaningful to an organization. Rules control transformations and can be configured for use in queries.
