This article gives an overview of what Intelligent Linking is and how to use it in Enrich.
About intelligent linking
Intelligent Linking allows you to automatically include/exclude links between entities, based on predefined rules and/or queries. Intelligent Linking eliminates the manual aspect of linking entities by applying predefined criteria for when a link should exist.
Intelligent Linking can be configured in Enrich and Plan & Release , or through the DataService API. The configuration is defined per entity and outbound LinkType.
Rules and/or queries can be used to specify if and when a link should exist. Rules specify that a field should have a certain value while queries define which entities should be linked.
