To get a 360-degree view of John Bach, the surgeons approached the IT department at Get Well Hospital, who first made a preliminary search for John Bach's profile using a member search interaction by specifying some basic criteria.
This search resulted in a list of members that matched the criteria.
You can use the member search interaction object IxnMemSearch to return a list of member rows that fit a list of search criteria. For instance, the member search Java example shows a legal name search for another member whose name is Norman.
When composite views are implemented, the member search results return the originating row identifier for each view attribute so that the lineage of each attribute value can be traced. For example, your MDM database has the following member information.
|Member record number||Entity ID||Source||Attribute||Modified date|
- Row 1: Member 1, Name (from Source A, because it is the most current attribute)
- Row 2: Member 2, Phone (from Source B, because it is the most current attribute)
