    Addressdoctor Estonian country validation issue after driver and files update

    Cip Development New Member

      Hello,

       

      We are using addressdoctor for some years,

      previously all was ok.

       

      But after data files update ~246 countries (~30GB) we have started to have issues with search address and validate address.

       

       

      So, if we try to check the address: Narva mnt 5, Tallinn, Estonia (EE)

       

      1) using this query. It will find and offer correct result:

       

      OURLOCALADDRESSDOCTOR/api/address/validate?addressScope=International&correctResults=true&country=EE&locality=Tallinn&plot=5&thoroughfare1=Narva%20mnt

       

      "completeAddress" : "Narva mnt 5\nTallinn\n10117 Harju"  it will show something like this correct city, postal code and Province "Harju"

       

      driver V5.16.0  and data file were downloaded a year ago in february.

       

      2) Now we have a problem.

      We wanted to update the driver and data files.

       

      driver V5.16.1 and data files from 1st June. Estonian files latest 21.05.21

       

      If we make the same test

       

      OURLOCALADDRESSDOCTOR/api/address/validate?addressScope=International&correctResults=true&country=EE&locality=Tallinn&plot=5&thoroughfare1=Narva%20mnt

       

      "completeAddress" : "Narva tn 5\nValga linn\n68205 Valga maakond"

      "completeAddress" : "Narva mnt 5\nJohvi linn\n41531 Ida-Viru maakond"

      "completeAddress" : "Vana-Narva mnt 5\nMaardu linn\n74114 Harju maakond"

      "completeAddress" : "Uus-Narva mnt 5\nMustvee linn\n49603 Jogeva maakond"

      "completeAddress" : "Narva tn 5\nMustvee linn\n49604 Jogeva maakond"

      "addressComplete" : "Narva tn 5\nValga linn\n68205 Valga maakond",        Very nice that soft can find and offer additional addresses, BUT there is no TALLINN city at all.

       

       

      But the correct address according to AD is like on the screenshot below.   Narva mnt 5, Kesklinna linnaosa (This is not a city it is a district), Harjumaa, Estonia

       

       

      Could you please help us with this issue?

       

       

      With best regards,

       

      Daniil

          Hello Daniil,

           

          I have tried checking the Address with latest June Database files and able to see following address result-

           

          <AddressElements>

          <Country Type="NAME_EN" Item="1">ESTONIA</Country>

          <Locality Item="1">Kesklinna linnaosa</Locality>

          <PostalCode Item="1">10117</PostalCode>

          <Province Item="1">Harju maakond</Province>

          <Street Item="1">Narva mnt</Street>

          <Number Item="1">5</Number>

          </AddressElements>

           

          If we see with the New Database files we are getting "Kesklinna" in Locality (District) output and was gettting "Tallinna" with old reference

           

          I have tried to check on wiki and looks like Kesklinn is distict in Tallinn.  Kesklinn, Tallinn - Wikipedia (In this case, AV is returning more accurate data).

            Hello Shubham Garg!

             

            Thank you for the reply.

            Yes, that is the issue.

             

            Because in Estonian language "Kesklinna linnaosa" it is just a CITY CENTER nothing more.

            So, if i want to Check Country and city, then application shows me only Country and city centre of what city??

             

            We are a global corporation and our software needs to work 24/7 in all countries. And some people do not know these hints, if it is a district or not, they know only address and CITY of a country. The software after validation needs to offer some addresses in correct way: STREET ,(DISTRICT if needed) , CITY, COUNTRY

             

            It is an issue. Because there must be a link to a city Tallinn.

             

            <AddressElements>

            <Country Type="NAME_EN" Item="1">ESTONIA</Country>

             

            <Locality Item="1">Kesklinna linnaosa</Locality> WRONG,BUT  should be something like this

            <Locality Item="1">Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn</Locality>

             

            <PostalCode Item="1">10117</PostalCode>

            <Province Item="1">Harju maakond</Province>

            <Street Item="1">Narva mnt</Street>

            <Number Item="1">5</Number>

            </AddressElements>

             

             

            When this issue will be updated or with whom to talk about this issue?

              Hello Daniil,

               

              Understood your point of Locality (Sub-locality). Where Tallinn would be locality and Kesklinna linnaosa be a sub-locality.

               

              Could you please open a Support ticket with Informatica so that Support team can take it further.
