Description: This solution discusses why aliases may be adding to the record automatically, even though they aren't included in the data file
Environment: All
Version: All


There is a set of business rules in The Raiser's Edge that will automatically create aliases on records.

Go to RE Config-->Business Rules-->Constituent Options-->General Options

There are three options for automatically adding to a list of aliases:
  1. Spouse last name
  2. Maiden name
  3. Known name

If one or more of these check boxes is selected, the business rule will add the alias to the record.
