IdentifierSearch service is based on open standards known collectively as web services, which includes:
The IdentifierSearch web service is hosted over a secure connection. It uses the HTTP Basic Authentication method over HTTPS and contains a SOAP formatted XML message carrying a XML payload.
The operation is available as either SOAPv1.1 or as SOAPv1.2. The ABR currently supports both operations, but we recommend using the latest version.
The request message in the SOAP envelope is provided as an IdentifierSearch element.
The server will first validate the identity of an incoming request message. The authentication is used by the ABR to determine the validity of the incoming request. The request will be refused if the identity check fails.
The IdentifierSearch authentication mode requires a username and password in the HTTP GET request.
