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.

  • 400 - MissingParameter - request is missing a required parameter
  • 401 - InvalidCredentials - request has missing or invalid credentials
  • 404 - ResourceNotFound - no matching resource found for the request
  • 409 - InvalidArgument - request includes an invalid argument
  • 412 - PreconditionFailedError - resource found, but did not satisfy request conditions
  • 500 - InternalError - request produced an internal system error
