The first address screening

To allow you to start quickly, you will find here a complete call to screen a sample address and receive a typical response.

Address screening

You can use this example and copy/paste it into your favorite tool to test REST and/or SOAP API calls. Our test environment is prepared to work with the data in this example.

📘

To reuse this example for your login details, replace the field clientIdentCode with your client, the field profileIdentCode with your Compliance profile and the field clientSystemId with an ID for your calling system.

When using REST, the URL for request in our API test environment will be https://rz3.aeb.de/test4ce/rest/ComplianceScreening/screenAddresses.

When using SOAP, the URL for request in our API test environment will be https://rz3.aeb.de/test4ce/servlet/bf/RexBF.

📘

To test REST API manually you can use this link to our REST API documentation and click the "Try it out" button for the desired request. Do not forget to use the “Authorize” button for authentication (at the top of the web page). Otherwise, you will get a 403 HTTP error.
