Optimization Level

Optimization Level

Determines how the transformation matches input address data and address reference data. The property defines the type of match that the transformation must find between the input data and reference data before it can update the address record.
The following table describes the Optimization Level options:
The transformation parses building numbers or house numbers from street information before it performs validation. Otherwise the transformation validates the input address elements strictly according to the input port structure. The narrow option performs the fastest address validation, but it can return less accurate results than other options.
The transformation parses multiple types of address information from the input data before it performs validation. When you select the standard option, the transformation updates an address if it can match multiple input values with the reference data.
Default is Standard.
The transformation uses the standard parsing settings and performs additional parsing operations across the input data. When you select the wide option, the transformation updates an address if it can match at least one input value with the reference data. The wide option increases mapping run times.

Parameter Usage

You can use a parameter to specify the optimization level. Enter NARROW, STANDARD, or WIDE. Enter the parameter value in uppercase.
