Welcome to D&B Data Exchange

This unique, cloud-based service provides customers one-source access to industry-specific data from select companies that join the D&B Data Exchange as partners. All of the data is linked through the D&B D-U-N-S® Number, enabling customers for the first time to confidently combine D&B information, other providers' content, and their own information to identify new growth opportunities across multiple industries.

Quick Start for REST

A common use of the API is to retrieve a list of the available partners with data for a specific D&B D-U-N-S Number, and then obtaining the actual records from one of the resulting data providers.

D&B Direct+ API calls must be made using Secured Socket Layers (SSL).

Before making calls to any D&B Direct+ function using REST, you need to obtain an access token, which lasts for twenty-four hours.

Token Request

Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: Basic <base 64 encoded(yourKey:yourSecret)>
Origin: www.dnb.com

{ "grant_type" : "client_credentials" }

NOTE: Contact your D&B representative to obtain your D&B Direct+ key/secret combination.

Token Response
{
	"access_token": "<yourToken>",
	"expiresIn": 86400
}
