Enabling US census plus data

Learn how to enable US Census Data as part of the address verification process in two steps.

  • Create a Support ticket. To configure this feature, the support team would configure the following parameter in the cleanse section of the Physical Tenant Configuration:
    process = 'e + v + g' - [Non CASS]
    Note: Tenant administrators can update the tenant configuration and add e if it doesn’t exist. For more information, see Swagger UI.

    process = 'e + c + g' - [CASS]

  • Change the Data Model:
    • Step 1: Add the following additional fields to the Output Mapping:
      {
          "attribute": "configuration/entityTypes/Location/attributes/CensusIndicator",
          "cleanseAttribute": "CensusIndicator"
        },

    • Step 3: For the existing entities, run the cleanse periodic task with forceCleansing set to true. For more information, see Data Cleanse Task (Asynchronous).
