Role Analysis

Role check

The service tests if the email address is a functional one, belongs to a role, such als info, admin or office for example, rather than to a person.

Syntax …/svc/2.0/address/role/<address>
Example …/svc/2.0/address/role/info@bar.com
Parameter An ASCII email address as last part of the URL

Result

<roleStatus>
    <result>1</result>
</roleStatus>

or

{"result": 1}
  • result: the evaluation result
    • 0: address does not contain a functional role
    • 1: address contains a functional role

Functionality

The local part of the requests address is checked against the role database table. If a match is found a positive result (1) is returned.

Each execution of the check will be documented as a business event (database table business_event) with type 118.
