Global Preferred Descriptor

Global Preferred Descriptor

Determines the format of the building descriptor, sub-building descriptor, and street descriptor that the Address Validator transformation writes to the output data. Select a descriptor when the address reference data for the destination country contains a range of descriptors for one or more of the data elements.
The following table describes the options on the property:

Database is the default value.

Copies the descriptor from the input address to the output address.
If the input descriptor is not a valid version of the descriptor, the transformation returns an equivalent valid descriptor from the reference database.
