Worldview National ID Verification
National ID checks are an integral part of the eIDV 1+1 and 2+2 checks outlined previously. They sometimes are required or recommended to access certain data sources. More information can be found in the Worldview Recommended Fields Documentation.
The National ID service returns the input fields along with a series of Messages and Message Codes based on the Match/No Match/Partial Match/Not Available verification of the submitted inputs.
MT messages are only surfaced when the option Message Verbose is passed.
The Match Messages provided with a National ID check are at the AU and MT levels. The MT messages below provide more specifics. For example,
<messages> <code>1AU-525-NATIONALID</code> <value>Full match was made on National ID</value> </messages>
National ID MT messages provide additional detail including the type of match and the source of the match. The following is an example of a eIDV (1+1) or 2+2 MT message:
<messages> <code>1MT-BR-UTL1-NATIONALID</code> <value>Full match was made on National ID</value> </messages>
Country Coverage and Formats
The below table outlines the countries where there is a national ID element check. Standard formats are provided as well, however, the WorldView platform can accept National IDs in an unformatted form as well (without any dividers, separators, spaces, etc.).
Using the "indicator" Field
There are a number of countries where multiple types of National ID are supported. In some cases, one or more types of National ID can be provided without additional information as to which type is being supplied. However, there are some cases where the type of National ID must be specified. In these cases, the "indicator" field must be provided in the request, using the value found in the table below that corresponds to the type of National ID provided.
