DescriptorLength

DescriptorLength

The DescriptorLength property specifies whether to abbreviate street and directional descriptors when abbreviations are available in the reference data.
You can set the property at the element level and at the address level. The element-level DescriptorLength property takes precedence over the address-level property.
To set the descriptor length policy at the address level, find the property under
Parameters
CountrySets
Standardizations
in the
AVJob.schema.json
file. To set the descriptor length policy at the element level, find the property under the associated element name under
Parameters
CountrySets
Standardizations
ElementStandardizations
in the
AVJob.schema.json
file.
You can set the property to one of the following values:
Database
Returns the descriptor preferred by the postal authority or indicated by the common country rules. Default is Database.
Long
Returns the expanded form of the element descriptor.
For example, Address Verification returns STREET for the input element ST.
Short
Returns the abbreviated form of the element descriptor.
For example, Address Verification returns AVE for the input element AVENUE.
Preserve
Returns the descriptor in the same form as the input.
If you select Preserve and Address Verification corrects or adds the descriptor, Address Verification returns the descriptor in the default format that reference data specifies.
