Duplicate check data processor

In select BlueConic connections, you can use the Duplicate check data processor to identify and skip the import of a data record if it was already imported within the same run.

Adding this data processor to your tenant

To use this processor, you first need to add it to your tenant through the Plugins page (BlueConic Settings > Plugins). Click the Add plugin button at the top of this page and look for "Duplicate check data processor" in the gallery. Then, click the Add plugin button underneath its description to install it.

Adding this data processor to a connection

The Duplicate check data processor is available in all BlueConic connections that use data processors. You can review the complete list here.

Each of these connections has a specific step on its import and/or export goal page to add data processors (e.g., "Correct your files before the import," "Modify your data before the export"). In that step, use the search box to add "Duplicate check"; once added, it appears in a numbered list of data processors activated for that connection.
