S3.4 - Configuring an XML - matchIT API Settings

Previous Article matchIT SQL Index Next Article 

The <matchITAPISettings> node defines all the settings related to the matchIT API. Perhaps the one of the more important nodes in this section is the first node - <nationality>. This node needs to be set to whatever the nationality of the data is that you are working on.

The structure of the XML within the <matchITAPISettings> node follows the COM hierarchy that is described in the matchIT API section. Please refer to the matchIT API Section for more detail on the settings and properties of the matchIT API and what they mean.
