Spectrum Services

A service is a processing capability that you access through the REST or SOAP web service interface or through the Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform API. You pass one or more records to the service and optionally specify the options to use when processing the record. The service processes the data and returns the data.

Some services become available when you install a module. For example, when you install the Universal Addressing Module the service ValidateAddress becomes available on your system. In other cases, you must create a service in Enterprise Designer then expose that service on your system as a user-defined service. For example, the Location Intelligence Module's stages are not available as services unless you first create a service using the module's stages.
