Introduction

The AuthorMerge submission specifies how two author records should be merged.

Required Tags

The submission contains three required tags:

  • KeepId - Required tag. Specifies which author record will be retained.
  • DropId - Required tag. Specifies which author record will be dropped.

Optional Tags

The AuthorMerge submission also contains a number of optional tags. When a merging conflict occurs, these tags are used to specify which version of the data should be used:

  • Canonical - Use when a conflict exists between the canonical names.
  • Legalname - Use when a conflict exists between the legal names.
  • Birthplace - Use when a conflict exists between the birthplaces.
  • Birthdate - Use when a conflict exists between the birthdates
  • Deathdate - Use when a conflict exists between the deathdates.
  • Wikipedia - Use when a conflict exists between Wikipedia URLs.
  • Imdb - Use when a conflict exists between IMDB URLs.
