    Suppressing Groups of Records from Dedup/FRBR for Primo VE

    Return to menu

    The Suppress Dedup/FRBR Rules page allows you to create rules that prevent groups of records from being Deduped/FRBRized so that they are not made redundant or grouped during discovery. For each rule you can decide whether to suppress the records from both the Dedup and FRBR processes or just from the Dedup process and to specify a set of conditions (maximum of two).

    • The system applies new and modified suppression rules only to new and modified records.

      • If you want to apply suppression rules to existing records that have not already been grouped, run the Prevent FRBR and/or Dedup in Discovery job on the Run a Job page (Admin > Manage Jobs and Sets > Run a Job). For more information, see Running Manual Jobs on Defined Sets

      • If you want to apply suppression rules to existing records that have already been grouped, contact Ex Libris Support for assistance.

    • If you want prevent the display of FRBR and Dedup groups for all records without changing any rules or running any jobs, you can disable FRBR/Dedup by configuring the Enable Dedup and Enable FRBR fields on the Brief Results tab on the View Configuration page (Configuration Menu > Discovery > Display Configuration > Configure Views). For more information, see Brief Results Tab.

    • For consortia, the Dedup/ FRBR suppression rules must be defined in both the IZ and NZ when IZ records are linked to the NZ. IZ suppression rules are applied only to IZ local records.
