ItemMatchAndMergeValve

Valve for merging items with equal value in configured property. Only configured properties will be merged. Other properties will remain with the value from the first item.

If a configured property already exist, additional values will be added and the property will become multi value.

The valve provides the same functionality as the AAM/PIP action ‘Merge objects and selected attributes’.
