Address Validator Transformation

Address Validator Transformation

Read this section to learn what's changed for the Address Validator transformation in version 10.5.1.

All Countries

Effective in version
10.5.1
, the Address Validator transformation uses version
5.16.1
of the Informatica Address Verification software engine.

of the Informatica Address Verification software engine.

Australia

Informatica introduces the following enhancements for Australia:
AMAS Standard
Effective in version
10.5.1
, Informatica supports the 2021 Address Matching Approval System (AMAS) standard for address verification software.
Previously, Informatica supported the 2019 AMAS standard for address verification software.
Optimization Level Updates
Effective in version
10.5.1
, the Address Validator transformation enables WIDE optimization when you verify Australia data in certified mode.
Previously, the Address Validator transformation disabled WIDE optimization in this scenario. When you selected WIDE optimization in an earlier release and you verified Australia data in certified mode, the Address Validator transformation applied the criteria defined by STANDARD optimization.
The AMAS certification standard does not support addresses that you verify with the WIDE optimization level. You can set the optimization level in certified mode to evaluate the effect of the level on your data. If you plan to submit an address set to the Australian postal service as certified to the AMAS standard, use a STANDARD optimization level.

Previously, Informatica supported the 2019 SERP standard for address verification software.
