Understanding Address Cleansing Result Classification

Once the address cleansing function has finished working with an address record, the ResultClassification field classifies the result.

The result is classified into the following three categories:

  • Accepted
  • Rejected
  • Review

The ResultClassification field defines the logic by configuring the MinMatchScore and MinVerificationLevel properties of the address cleansing function.

The following table describes the possible ResultClassification values:
