The following parameters may be used for D&B Direct 2.0 developer sandbox requests to retrieve successful responses. The data returned from sandbox requests may not represent actual values that this feature will deliver.

Trials

When conducting testing in the production environment during a trial period, product requests will be limited to the local market of the customer.

Production

A set of D-U-N-S Numbers is available to D&B Direct 2.0 customers for performing non-billable transactions in the production environment.

Product Response

While data for a particular company may not contain values for each of the business elements, there may be items that are considered by D&B to be "essential" to yield the maximum benefit of a data layer. If any of these essential elements do not contain a value for a particular company, a PD005 response code will be returned, and your organization will not incur a usage credit for the request.

For all codified data delivered by D&B Direct, the response package will include the decoded text value as a data element with the code value attached as an attribute. Refer to the Reference Data Service for access to the D&B standard code tables.

Specification

The following is a list of the possible data fields returned by this operation in the XML response. Samples are provided for testing successful and failed retrieval, and to demonstrate the basic layout of a response. The data returned in samples may not represent actual values that this feature will deliver.

The results from this feature will include principal identification numbers (Principal ID) that may be passed to the People feature to obtain additional information about individuals.

NOTE: The D-U-N-S Number returned in the response will be a nine-digit zero-padded, numeric value.

Legend: [C] = may be included in a Custom Data product; [M] = may be referenced by the Monitoring process; [M+] = Monitored using an aggregate or attribute XPath.

Lists of possible values (when present) are subject to change. Additional values not presented in this documentation may be delivered in the response and should be anticipated in any implementation.

Empty/NULL Values

A NULL returned for an element indicates that the information was not provided to D&B when the related data items were collected. The absence of a value for a particular item should not be considered indicative of any implied value (e.g., NULL for a boolean indicator is NOT the same as a value of 'false').

NOTE: There may be additional request and/or response elements specified in the WSDL that are not applicable for D&B Direct customers. Data elements that are not listed on this page are currently unused by this operation.

Currency Codes/Units

Whenever financial statement data is included in a response, each individual business element (ItemAmount) should be inspected for currency code and unit values (CurrencyISOAlpha3Code and UnitOfSize). If a given element does not include these attributes, the values provided in the statement header should be utilized.

SIC Codes

SIC stands for Standard Industrial Classification. The idea of coding and classifying industries to help analyze industrial structure was first developed by the U.S. Government in the 1930’s. The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) System has been widely adopted as the standard coding system used to define and analyze industry structure.

D&B assigns SIC’s at the eight-digit level and can include up to six base (four-digit, which are defined by the Government) SIC’s with up to four, four-digit extensions for each, for a maximum total of twenty-four separate lines of business per record to identify what a business does.

Response Codes & Error Handling

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

This operation may return the following response codes: CM001-CM005, CM007-CM012, CM014, CM017, CM018, PD001, PD003, PD005, PD006, PD015, PD016,PD019 and SC001-SC012.

IMPORTANT: PD006 code - Applicable only for US/CA cases when TradeUpIndicator="true" for Risk packets.

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 codes CM000, CM010, PD002 and PD015 are considered successful. A built-in feature exists to prevent duplicate billing when multiple successful requests with the same D-U-N-S Number and product code are submitted on the same calendar day (which is based on Eastern Standard Time [GMT-5]).

Retrieving Archived Copies

An option exists to retain the results from all successful requests for this product in a Product Request Archive, which may be retrieved without incurring additional usage charges.

NOTE: The default value for ArchiveProductOptOutIndicator is 'true', indicating that the request will NOT be automatically archived.

Business Elements

While D&B Direct uses a product canonical naming model in the request/response, many customers may be more familiar with the following business element labels.

This product will also return a set of standard elements (e.g. D-U-N-S Number, Organization Name, Trade Styles, Family Tree Role, Primary Address, Mailing Address, Telephone Number, Fax Number, etc.) in addition to the business elements listed.
