Programatic search or duplicate detection? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    In a system where efficiency and reliability is priority I'm wondering which method to use to detect duplicates while inserting records via workflow.

    I know that using the out of box duplicate detection and the parameter "SupressDuplicateDetection" = False we can ensure that potential duplicates are managed appropriately. But I also wonder if it may be more or less efficient to simply perform a RetrieveMultiple to manually search for duplicates and handle them that way instead.

    That way there would be no reliance on the duplicate detection rules. Note, these rules I'm dealing with are never going to change for this system.

    Anyone have thoughts on this? which would you use?
