Worldview National Identification (ID) Verification & Validation
The Worldview platform offers two types of National ID checks – Verification and Validation. Each is defined below:
- Verification – Ensuring that the National ID matches at least one or more reference data sources.
- Validation – Ensuring that the National ID is in valid in terms of format, correct number of digits and syntax.
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 Required 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/No Data Available verification of the submitted inputs.
Additional and customer MT Messages can be created that are provider and source specific as client business needs indicate. MT messages are only surfaced when the option Message Verbose is passed. This can be configured on a tenant-by-tenant basis to default always be “on” by Worldview support.
The Match Messages provided with a National ID check are at the AU and MT levels. The AU message simply notifies of the Watchlist hit on the input provided. 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>
