Initial ReleaseSeptember 30, 2014

Using a D-U-N-S Number, find the business events or sales "triggers" for US companies that are planning a move into new office space or receiving new SBA-backed commercial loans. The Iridium triggering event ID can then be used to find more detail about the event, the company, and its key contacts. Relocation triggers about companies and the location of triggers are based on UCC filings. Knowing these triggers can help businesses find and prioritize leads to reach prospective customers before their competition.

Use the following endpoint for requesting this feature.

REST (DataExchange)
GET https://direct.dnb.com/dataexchange/iridium/dnb/triggers/{SalesWireID}

Response Codes & Error Handling

Responses from this Data Exchange feature will return a D&B response code, along with a partner response code, unless the partner service is not accessible at the time of the request.

Successful service requests will return a CM000 response code in the DNB-ResultID header field. Otherwise, one of the D&B Direct standard response codes will be returned.

This operation may return the following response codes: CM004, SC001-SC009.

NOTE: When a CM004 response code is received, the HTTP status code will be the value returned by the Data Exchange partner.

D&B Direct 2.0 API requests are provided on a metered basis; and may require entitlement prior to use in the production environment. In addition, a concurrency limit (QPS) is monitored to ensure that it is not exceeded. An error code will be returned in the event that a transaction is throttled.

Qualified usage (e.g., a successful response) is tracked and billed according to the terms & conditions of the customer's contract. The response code CM000 is considered successful. A built-in feature exists to prevent duplicate billing when multiple successful feature requests with the same D-U-N-S Number are submitted on the same calendar day (which is based on Eastern Standard Time [GMT-5]).

Feature Notes

This D&B Data Exchange feature will pass-thru the partner HTTP status code whenever a CM004 error is delivered in the DNB-ResultID header field. The following are the possible values from this partner.

  • 404: no matches found
  • 500: unsuccessful
