Normalization and transformation data jobs

Normalization and transformation data jobs

The system uses data jobs to change field values during normalization and transformation.

Administrators must manually start data jobs that apply field changes. By default, which blocks administrators from running manual data jobs that apply changes to existing data. Most data jobs have a rollback option to revert changes after the job completes. By default, the system provides these data jobs.

Name Used for Description
Pending value collection Normalization The system runs this job to collect field values that will change during the next field normalization run. The system runs this job whenever you insert or update a field normalization record. Since this data job does not change any field values, there is no rollback option.
Normal value change Normalization Run this job to re-run field normalization and update field values when you change a normal value. The system creates this job whenever you change a normal value. Rollback the data job to revert normalized fields to the previous normal value.
Alias application Normalization Run this job to normalize all field values that match an alias. The system creates this job whenever you create or update an alias. Rollback the data job to revert normalized fields to their previous values.
Rule application Normalization Run this job to normalize all field values that match a rule. The system creates this job whenever you create or update a rule. Rollback the data job to revert normalized fields to their previous values.
Coalesce to normal Normalization Run this job to normalize reference field values by replacing references to multiple duplicate records with one reference to a normalized record. The system creates this job whenever you change a normal value that applies to a reference field. Rollback the data job to restore the duplicate records as valid options. The rollback does not restore references to the previous records.
Transform application Transformation Run this job to transform all field values that match the transformation conditions. You cannot start this job while the Transformation record is in Test mode. The system creates this job whenever you create or update a transformation record. Rollback the data job to revert transformed fields to their previous values.
