This tab is displayed in the Exception Monitor Options dialog box.

Stop evaluating when a condition is met
Specifies whether to continue evaluating a record against the remaining conditions once a condition is met. Enabling this option may improve performance because it potentially reduces the number of evaluations that the system has to perform. However, if not all conditions are evaluated you will lose some degree of completeness in the exception reports shown in the Data Stewardship Portal. For example, if you define three conditions (Address Completeness, Name Confidence, and Geocode Confidence) and a record meets the criteria defined in Address Completeness, and you enable this option, the record would not be evaluated against Name Confidence and Geocode Confidence. If the record also qualifies as an exception because it matches the Name Confidence condition, this information would not be captured. Instead the record would be reported as having only an Address Completeness problem, instead of both an Address Completeness and Name Confidence problem.
Conditions list
The list box on this tab shows all conditions that have been defined for the stage in tabular view. The conditions are evaluated in the order that they appear in the list. The list displays the following information for each condition.
  • Name—The name for the condition. This is typically a meaningful name created by the user who created the condition.
  • Approval Flow Type—The name of an approval flow type defined on the Management Console Data Stewardship Settings page.
  • Domain—Specifies the kind of data being evaluated by the condition. This is used solely for reporting purposes to show which types of exceptions occur in the data.
  • Metric—Specifies the metric that this condition measures. This is used solely for reporting purposes to show which types of exceptions occur in your data.
  • Assign to—The user to whom the exception records meeting this condition are assigned. This user is referred to as the data steward. If this setting is empty, exception records from a job are automatically assigned to the user who ran the job.
