High Availability with ZooKeeper

Identity Resolution uses Apache ZooKeeper to achieve high availability for Rulebase Servers, updsync utility, and updmulti utility in a distributed environment. High availability refers to the availability of the resources without any service interruption if a failure occurs.

SEARCH and FILE Extended Fields

You can extend any of the key fields and set the weight for the extended fields. The extended fields use the algorithm of the key fields. Use the extended fields to override the weight of the key fields in the run time.

Range Matching on the Date Fields

In the SCORE-LOGIC controls section, you can specify a range for the dates in the search data, the file data, or both to perform matching. The matching returns 100% score if the search data and file data values are within the specified range.

Performance Improvements

Performance improvements for key generation and matching of 15 to 30%.

IDD Improvements

Error logging with IDD is improved and search performance options such as candidate-set-size-limit and truncate are now supported within IDD's search interface.  Connection stability and error handling is also improved.

MDM Registry Edition:


Informatica MDM-Registry Edition 9.5.4 is a point release containing enhancements and bug fixes. The highlights of Informatica Identity MDM-Registry Edition version 9.5.4 include:


IR Batch System Configuration Update Utility

  • Retrieve and update the configuration metadata data of a system (without reloading the system in most cases). Use it to also update IR systems remotely.

In-Place Update API calls for IR Synchronization via the Sync Server

  • Make a single API call for updating records instead of deletes and adds.

Range Matching

  • Match a number field in the search record to within +/- value of another number field in the file record.

Log Grabber and Log Formatter Utilities

  • Consolidate all log files in installation directories into a single file including configuration information using the Log Grabber utility. Convert the file to XML format for easy browser viewing with the Log Formatter utility.

More Matching Options

  • Use the FILTER_SEARCHVALUES control to specify a list of values to match with the search data field, file data field or both.

LWM Compatibility Enhancement

  • On upgrading, use the Light Weight Matching feature on existing ASCII based populations from previous versions that have been customised.

Active Directory-Based Authorization

  • Active Directory can be used as a security provider and can be used for role based authorization (user and admin) for finer control of access to features and configuration settings.

New Clustering Option

  • Use the new ALL-UNDECIDED-REVIEW option with the BEST clustering method to review all undecided match records for the search record. This option flags the cluster created for the search record and all the existing clusters of the undecided match records.

Informatica MDM Registry Edition - 9.5.2 - Release Notes - (English)


The highlights of this release include:


  • Simplified Search: Informatica MDM-Registry Edition 9.5 introduces a new Key Field called the Generic_Field, and a new  Match Purpose called Generic. These index Generic data that may contain either of Person Names, Organization Names, Addraesses, or a combination thereof. These new options provide a simplified search experience.
  • Forced Link and Unlink Rule: This feature provides the ability to explicitly define  groups of records representing the same logical entity (Forced Link) or different entities (Forced Unlink). These rules ensure that the manual decisions are maintained, even when subsequent updates occur to the specified entities during Synchronization processing.
  • Security: Introduces a  new generic Security Layer to perform user authentication against external directory services and user repositories The Security Layer enables Role-Based authentication for different categories of users accessing the MDM-RE product.
  • Persistent-IDs refresh: This release enables users the ability to refresh the Persistent-ID clusters, members, and preferred records.
