Rules and Guidelines for Address Reference Data Preload Options

Rules and Guidelines for Address Reference Data Preload Options

If you run a mapping that reads address reference data, verify the policy that the Data Integration Service uses to load the data into memory. To configure the policy, use the preload options on the address validation process properties. The Data Integration Service reads the preload options from the Content Management Service when an address validation mapping runs.
Consider the following rules and guidelines when you configure the preload options on the Content Management Service:
  • By default, the Content Management Service applies the ALL value to the options that indicate no data preload. If you accept the default options, the Data Integration Service reads the address reference data from files in the directory structure when the mapping runs.
  • The address validation process properties must indicate a preload method for each type of address reference data that a mapping specifies. If the Data Integration Service cannot determine a preload policy for a type of reference data, it ignores the reference data when the mapping runs.
  • The Data Integration Service can use a different method to load data for each country. For example, you can specify full preload for United States suggestion list data and partial preload for United Kingdom suggestion list data.
  • The Data Integration Service can use a different preload method for each type of data. For example, you can specify full preload for United States batch data and partial preload for United States address code data.
  • Full preload settings supersede partial preload settings, and partial preload settings supersede settings that indicate no data preload.
    For example, you might configure the following options:
    Full Pre-Load Geocoding Countries: DEU
    No Pre-Load Geocoding Countries: ALL
    The options specify that the Data Integration Service loads German geocoding data into memory and does not load geocoding data for any other country.
  • The Data Integration Service loads the types of address reference data that you specify in the address validation process properties. The Data Integration Service does not read the mapping metadata to identify the address reference data that the mapping specifies.
