Bulk vs. single address screening

The Compliance Screening API provides two requests for address screening: Bulk address screening and Find matching addresses. Bulk address screening processes several addresses at once and retuns a simple result (match or not, address already defined as Good Guy). In contrast, Find matching addresses screens only one address for all matching restricted party addresses, but provides no further match information.

For most use cases, you will start with Bulk address screening calls to find potentially critical addresses. Find matching addresses will typically be used only in the Match Handling or if you plan to implement an interactive application for screening single addresses by users.
