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
  • China (Hanzi)
  • Germany
  • Japan (Kanji)
  • New Zealand
  • United Kingdom
  • United States
Address Verification identifies the address elements in a single-line address input based on their position. You must enter the elements in the correct order even if you leave out some of the elements from the input. However, for optimum results, enter as many details as possible in the input address. 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 address element order to use for the supported countries:
Country
Order of Address Elements
Australia
[Sub-building] [House Number] [Street] [Locality] [Province] [Post Code]
Canada
[Sub-building] [House Number] [Street] [Delivery Service] [Locality] [Province] [Post Code]
China
[Post Code] [Province] [Locality] [Street] [House Number] [Sub-building]
Germany
[Street] [House Number] [Post Code] [Locality] [Province]
Japan
[Post Code] [Province] [Main Locality] [Sub-locality] [Chome] Ban] [Go]
New Zealand
[Sub-building] [House Number] [Street] [Delivery Service] [Locality] [Post Code]
United Kingdom
[Sub-building] [House Number] [Street] [Main Locality] [Sub-locality] [Post Code]
United States
[Sub-building] [House Number] [Street] [Locality] [Province] [Post Code]
Although delimiters are not required in single-line address input, Address Verification processes a comma or a semicolon in the input as an element separator. An input address with delimiters in a Latin script might fetch better suggestions than an address without delimiters. Informatica Address Verification does not support country, organization, building, or contact information in single-line address input.
If the single-line address input contains only a numeric input, Address Verification considers it as the post 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 post code and locality.
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.
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 the
Parameters.xml
and
SetConfig.xml
files.
