The GlobalPreferredDescriptor Attribute

The GlobalPreferredDescriptor Attribute

You can configure Informatica Address Verification to specify the output format for street, building, and subbuilding element descriptors. To specify the output format for element descriptors, configure the
GlobalPreferredDescriptor
attribute of the
Result
parameter in
Parameters.xml
.
The
GlobalPreferredDescriptor
parameter works only for address element descriptors in Australia and New Zealand addresses and the
Strasse
element descriptor in Germany addresses.
You can specify one of the following values for
GlobalPreferredDescriptor
:
DATABASE
Returns the element descriptor available in the reference address database. This is the default value. If there is no matching entry in the database, Address Verification copies the input to the output.
LONG
Returns the expanded form of the element descriptor.
SHORT
Returns the abbreviated form of the element descriptor.
PRESERVE_INPUT
Copies the element descriptor in the input to the output. If the input element descriptor is not an official name, Address Verification returns the corresponding value from the database in the output. For example, when you validate an Australia address that contains BD for boulevard, Address Verification corrects the descriptor to BVD. BVD is the standard short form for boulevard in Australia.
