OperationCreateNotificationProfile
{version}8.0
8.0 Released onFebruary 15, 2019

This function allows a customer to specify a user preference and the frequency for testing monitoring profile conditions.

A Notification Profile establishes the protocol by which change events should be delivered to customers, and references user preferences setup in the User Service. This is the PUSH component of the Data Field Monitoring feature.

Update History

  • January 29, 2016 (v5.0 SOAP & REST): PUSH notifications now include CustomerReferenceText for List Change Notice.
  • January 8, 2016 (v5.0 SOAP & REST): The input parameter CompressedProductIndicator is added to CreateNotificationProfileRequest and UpdateNotificationProfileRequest. AttachCompressedProductIndicator is added to GetMonitoringProduct Request.

What to do First

Feature Request

IMPORTANT: Please see the new Online Services Security Enhancement Release, effective December 14, 2018.

Data Layer Entitlement

For customers in U.S. and Canadian markets, the API is provisioned for specific collections of products, reports, and/or features (collectively referred to as data layers) for production and trial usage. Entitlement is not required for testing in the sandbox environment.

  • This function does not require entitlement for production and trial usage. Entitlement for monitoring is only required for the Add Monitoring Registration function, and for the data layers that will monitored.

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.

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: CM002, CM004, CM007, CM023, SC001-SC009.

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.

While this operation is provided on a metered basis, usage is tracked; however, no billing for successful calls is recorded.

Operation-specific supplemental response code explanations:

CM002Any schema validation failure (e.g. elements that are mandatory in the schema are not present in the request, Sequence of the element is not matching in the schema, Data type mismatch or Invalid notification Level).
CM007Delivery Channel User Preference Name is invalid.
CM023Duplicate Profile Name

Feature Notes

The DeliveryChannelUserPreferenceName parameter value should match the PreferenceSpecification.PreferenceName value that was used to create the User Preference.

NOTE: When the HTTPCallBack delivery mode is specified, the corresponding User Preference must include values for both the Credentials.UserID and Credentials.Password, as these fields will be supplied in the header when the call back is performed.
