This stage finds candidate records that will form the set of potential matches that the Transactional Match stage will evaluate. Candidate Finder is used with Transactional Match.

Candidate Finder obtains the candidate records that will form the set of potential matches. Database searches work in conjunction with Transactional Match, and Search Index searches work independently from Transactional Match. Depending on the format of your data, Candidate Finder may also need to parse the name or address of the suspect record, the candidate records, or both.

Candidate Finder also enables full-text index searches and helps in defining both simple and complex search criteria against characters and text using various search types (Any Word Starts With, Contains, Contains All, Contains Any, Contains None, Fuzzy, Pattern, Proximity, Range, Wildcard) and conditions (All True, Any True, None True).
