Defining Inquiry levels entails setting the parameters that determine the level of detail for objects being returned in a search or inquiry transaction.
Defining the Inquiry levels allows new combinations of objects to be returned. The core product business objects supported for inquiry-level customization are Person, Organization, and Contract.
InfoSphere® MDM offers a variety of inquiry transactions that accept one or more inquiry levels as parameters. InfoSphere MDM uses these parameters to select the correct objects to return as a part of the transaction.
