IA Data Quality rules Table Join keys operators

Operators - Within IA Data Quality rule development, Currently we can only join tables with = operator on Keys under Joins Tab. There is no way we can join tables using >= or <= operators . For example we would like to join tables where >=, In this scenario, we we have to create SQVT which would be not efficient on time perspective and tool shouldn't be lacking this functionality.

  • Will not implement
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Data Quality Rule developers
How should it work?

Proposed solution would be adding >=,<= operators to existing = operator.

Measurable Benefits: This could help developers save their time by working on real issues.

Current Workaround: Right Now, We are supposed to create SQVT's, prior building DQ rules on top of them.

I would say, this is general functionality a DQ tool should possess.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification High because this is a mandatory functionality with in DQ tool

    I see it has been marked as "Will not implement". Has this Enhancement request been considered for WKC ? Are you considering WKC as totally different standalone Product from Information Server ?
