Parameters


Config Parameters

Use the config parameters to adjust elements like the output language.

Search Parameters

Any parameter that begins with a "d_" is a search parameter. We will attempt to map these to a Zip+4. Some search parameters cannot be used by themselves, such as d_last. If a search parameter requires another, it will be noted in the table below.

Name Description
d_zip4 A 4 digit zip+4 in the USA.
Example:d_zip4=4088
d_zip A 5 digit zip code in the USA.
Requires: d_fulladdr
Example:d_zip=87402

Output Schema


Api results will follow the schema shown below and will include:

  • version - api version
  • query-id - id unique to each query
  • results - list of append results
  • input-query - list of input search parameters and their values
  • num-results - number of match records for the given search parameters
  • query-time - how long the processing took
  • page-time - how long the lookup took
  • AddrStdSimilarity - if results are found and search parameters other than d_zip4 and d_zip are used, this number represents how strong of a mapping exists between the input search parameters and the found zip+4.

For a list of fields returned, please see the examples section below.

Output schema in JSON:

{
  "datafinder": {
    "version": "2.0",
    "query-id": "xxxxxx",
    "results": [
      {
        "key": "value"
      }
    ],
    "input-query": {
      "key": "value"
    },
    "num-results": 1,
    "query-time": "0.000",
    "page-time": "0.000"
  }
}
       

If no matching records are found, the result would appear as follows:

{
  "datafinder": {
    "version": "2.0",
    "query-id": "xxx",
    "input-query": {
      "PostalCode": "98036",
      "Zip4": "1291"
    },
    "num-results": 0,
    "query-time": "0.138",
    "page-time": "0.193"
  }
}
           

In this case, the zip+4, "1291" does not exist in the zip, "98036". Some other reasons for not find matching a matching record could include:

  • Zip+4 input does not actually exist
  • Search parameters inputs cannot be mapped to a zip+4
