update record status if duplicate exists RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to update a record based on duplicate detection rule?

    To be more clear, I have a duplicate detection rule that checks if user with same name and surname exists in the system. What I need is, if it exists, I need to set status to both of the records to existing.
    Is there a way to do this?

  • Hi,

    I don't have any idea why to use duplicate detection in this case, but you could use a plugin in this case. Just check the name and surname in the plugin and then update both status of the records.
