    Anyone using IPA to do validation of address?

    USPS has an API that allows the use of XML calls and returns address validation through their API.  Was wondering if anyone has done this.

    Figured it out... using a WebRun node to make the call to their web program API was able to pass employee address change information and get an XML response with validation of the address with corrections to formatting etc.

    Still kind of interested if anyone is doing this and how you might have accomplished it.

    Nice work! That is how I would have done it . I've written a few flows now that are doing either XML, JSON etc to various vendors to POST and GET data. We've even spun up our own API so that we can consume industry standard API's and then trigger flows form it and use the data to update landmark or S3. Otherwise, you have to use the Landmark API's and that can be tedious and may not fly with the vendor.

    Hi! We are seeking an address validation API. Would one of you be available to chat with me about the solution you used to validate address updates in both Lawson S3 and Landmark?
