Response Elements

The following elements are the basic options for each request. These apply to the entire response, not the individual records.

Version

This is a string value that is the current revision number of Global Name.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "Version":"string"
SOAP/XML <Version>string</Version>


Transmission Reference

This is a string value that serves as a unique identifier for this set of records. It is returned as sent by the Request Array, allowing you to match the Response to the Request.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "TransmissionReference":"string"
SOAP/XML <TransmissionReference>string</TransmissionReference>


Transmission Results

This is a string value that lists error codes from any errors caused by the most recent request as a whole.
For a complete list of error codes, see Global Name Result Codes.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "TransmissionResults":"string"
SOAP/XML <TransmissionResults>string</TransmissionResults>


Total Records

This is a string value that is the total number of records returned with the response.
Protocol Syntax
JSON "TotalRecords":"string"
SOAP/XML <TotalRecords>string</TotalRecords>


Response Record Elements

JSON will only contain the Records element.

Protocol Definition
JSON Each record will be contained within [{}] under the Records element.
SOAP
XML

Each of the following elements are returned for each record in the Response Array.


Record ID

This is a string value that is a unique identifier for the current record if one was sent in the request. Use this element to match a request record and the corresponding response record.
