You can set the minimum level of information that an address must contain before Informatica Address Verification accepts it as valid. Use the VerificationLevel element to set the level. The VerificationLevel element specifies a threshold of valid information at which Address Verification will not reject an address. Find the VerificationLevel element under
You can set the following properties on VerificationLevel:
PreferredVerificationLevel. The desired level.
MinimumVerificationLevel. The minimum level that you accept for an address to be valid.
You can set the PreferredVerificationLevel and MinimumVerificationLevel properties to one of the following values:
All. Address Verification verifies all address elements and also checks for the presence of all postally relevant elements. Default is All.
Address. Address Verification verifies all address elements except company information.
Premise. Address Verification verifies an address to house number level or building level and ignores sub-building information.
Street. Address Verification verifies an address to street level or delivery service with number level and ignores information such as house number, building, and sub-building.
Locality. Address Verification verifies an address to locality level and ignores street and delivery service information. Address Verification also verifies the postal codes.
PrimaryLocality. Address Verification verifies an address up to locality level 1 and ignores the more granular locality level information. Address Verification also verifies the postal codes.
Ensure that the value that you set in the PreferredVerificationLevel property is not lower than the MinimumVerificationLevel value.
If Address Verification cannot verify the address information at the preferred verification level, it attempts to verify the address at the next level between the preferred and the minimum levels. Address Verification can return the verification level met by the address in the UsedVerificationLevel property.
Address Verification copies any input information outside the minimum verification level to the output address. If Address Verification cannot verify the address information to the minimum level, it rejects the address.
When you set both VerificationLevel element properties to All and Address Verification cannot verify an input data value, Address Verification rejects the address.
