Adding a definitional source
Add a definitional source when you want access to member records maintained within that source. Adding a source is a two-step process. First, add the source information (stored in the MPI_srchead table). Then, add the comparison scores for this source and other sources interacting with InfoSphere® MDM (stored in the MPI_srcxsrc table).
