Single Line Address Verification

Single Line Address Verification

You can use the single-line address verification to verify addresses entered into the
AddressComplete
element as a single line and receive suggestions to complete the address. Informatica Address Verification supports single line address verification as part of the fast completion mode.
To activate single-line address verification, you need a separate unlock code of type
SINGLE_LINE_VALIDATION
. Contact your sales representative for more information about obtaining the unlock code.
You can verify addresses from the following countries using single line address verification.
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • New Zealand
  • United Kingdom
  • United States
Address Verification identifies address elements in a single-line address input based on their position in the sequence you enter the address elements. So, it is imperative that you follow the order shown in the following table when you enter single-line addresses. When you enter an address in single line, ensure that you do not mix Delivery Address Line (DAL) elements and Country-Specific Location Line (CSLLN) elements.
The following table shows the order of address elements for the supported countries.
Country
Order of Address Elements
Australia
Sub-building, House Number, Street, Main Locality, Province, Postal Code
Canada
Sub-building, House Number, Street, Delivery Service, Main Locality, Province, Postal Code
Germany
Street, House Number, Postal Code, Locality, Province
New Zealand
Sub-building, House Number, Street, Delivery Service, Locality, Postal Code
United Kingdom
Sub-building, House Number, Street, Main Locality, SubLocality, Postal Code
United States
Sub-building, House Number, Street, Locality, Province, Postal Code
The typical sequence of address elements is from the specific to the generic. You must enter the elements in the specified sequence even if you leave out some of the elements from the input. However, for optimum results, you enter as many details as possible in the input address.
Even though delimiters are not required in a single-line address input, Address Verification processes a comma or semicolon in the input as an element separator. An input address with delimiters might fetch better suggestions than one without delimiters. Note that Informatica Address Verification Cloud does not support country, organization, building, or contact information in the single-line address input.
If the single-line address input contains only a numeric input, Address Verification considers it as the Postal Code and returns suggestions accordingly. For countries where the house number appears on the left side of the street name or locality, if the single-line address input begins with a number that is followed by a string, Address Verification considers the number as a house number and the following string as the street name or locality. If Address Verification does not find a match for this combination, Address Verification tries to interpret the input as street name without house number or as a combination of postal code and locality.
When there is no perfect match for an input, Address Verification returns multiple suggestions to help you choose the most appropriate result. Address Verification returns multiple suggestions based on the value you configure for
MaxResultCount
in
Parameters.xml
and
SetConfig.xml
files.
Address Verification returns an N6 process status code if single line address verification is not available for the country to which the input address belongs. Address Verification returns an N7 process status code if you have not provided the unlock key for single line address verification in
SetConfig.xml
