Overlay Settings

The connector can automatically create custom fields in the Reveal project database (in the IMPORT_DOCUMENTS table) and populate the values immediately after ingestion. You can also manually run the overlay as a separate step after ingestion if desired.

The following is the complete list of overlay fields:

BD EMT AttachmentCount

BD EMT DuplicateID

BD StrictDupStatus

BD EMT ThreadIndent

BD EMT ThreadSort

BD IsStrictDupPivot


BD ExactDupStatus

BD EMT IsDuplicate

BD EMT IsMessage

Enable option Enable Multiple Overlay Sets if you wish to connect different datasets to the same Reveal project. This will ensure unique fields names in Reveal.

Example field names:   Option off: BD EMT WasUnique

Option on: BD Dataset 140 EMT WasUnique  

A field profile is also created in Reveal during overlay. By default, admin groups are given access to the profile.  

Example profile names:

Option off: BD Dataset

Option on: BD Dataset 140

Option Enable Clearing Documents Prior to Overlay can remain off by default. If re-running overlay this option can be used to clear all values prior to re-overlaying.
