Managing the exceptions database

The Exceptions stage produces exception descriptors that are stored in the exceptions database as a set of related rows and tables.

You can use list and delete commands against the exceptions database. You can list or delete objects in the exceptions database. You can delete exception descriptors and the associated data from the exceptions database, or you can delete groupings of descriptors. You delete exception descriptors in the same manner that you typically delete tables in a database. You cannot modify the exception descriptions that are stored in the exception database. You use the Data Quality Exception Console to view and modify exception descriptors.

The exceptions database is managed like other repositories in IBM® InfoSphere® Information Server.
