Configuring the SSA-NAME3 Search Parameters

Configuring the SSA-NAME3 Search Parameters

You must configure the SSA-NAME3 search parameters, such as the field name based on which you want to search records, in the configuration file.
To configure the SSA-NAME3 searching parameters, add the following parameters to the SearchConfiguration section in the configuration file:
searchType
Name for the search that you configure.
searchFieldName
Name of the column based on which you want to generate key ranges to search records.
keyField
Name of the SSA-NAME3 field based on which you want to search records.
You can specify only one field as a key field in a configuration file. If you want to use other fields, you must create a separate configuration file for the required field.
searchLevel
Optional. Type of search that you want to perform. Use one of the following values:
  • Narrow
  • Typical
  • Exhaustive
  • Extreme
A search returns more candidates as the search level increases but uses more resources and takes a longer execution time. Default is Typical.
AdditionalControl
Optional. Additional attributes that you want to configure. You can specify the following attributes:
  • NAMEFORMAT=L|R. Indicates whether the major word in a name or address is on the left end or the right end. For example, in Western names, the family name is on the right end of the names.
  • UNICODE_ENCODING. Specifies the Unicode format of the data that you use.
The following sample code shows the SSA-NAME3 search parameters:
<SearchConfiguration>
      <searchType>Household</searchType>
      <searchFieldName>NAME</searchFieldName>
      <keyField>Person_Name</keyField>
      <searchLevel>Typical</searchLevel>
      <AdditionalControl>NAMEFORMAT=L</AdditionalControl>
</SearchConfiguration>
