AddressCodeLookup Mode

AddressCodeLookup Mode

The Address Verification reference data includes unique values that represent part of an address or the complete address. To return the value for an address, or to retrieve the address information that a value represents, configure Informatica Address Verification in address code lookup mode. You must also install the corresponding address code lookup (
ACL
) database with valid license keys.
In address code lookup mode, you can retrieve address information for the following countries:
  • Austria
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • Serbia
  • South Africa
  • United Kingdom
To configure Informatica Address Verification in address code lookup mode, specify the address code for the information that you require in the input. Find the AddressCode element of the LookupKeys element in the
AVJob.schema.json
file.
The AddresssCode element includes the following properties:
  • Value. The address code value.
  • Type. The type of address code.
When you submit the address code lookup values for processing, Address Verification returns the partial or complete addresses that correspond to the values.

Address Codes

The following table lists the address codes that you can add:

Address Verification returns a value of 0 for the ResultQuality and PostalRelevance status codes in address code lookup mode, because the lookup returns a partial address.
Address Verification returns a value of U as the Address Type in address code lookup mode.

Transaction Key and Record ID Values in Address Code Lookup Mode

If the address records in your organization contain transaction keys or record ID values, you can use the values in address code lookup mode. When you include the values in the input addresses, Address Verification passes the values through to the output addresses. You can then enter a transaction key or record ID value in address code lookup mode to query the output addresses and to return the address that matches the value.
Use the SourceID to enter the values. You can find the input SourceID in the
AVJob.schema.json
file.
