Spectrum Services

A service is a processing capability that you access through the REST or SOAP web service interface or through the Spectrum 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 Spectrum process. For example, when you install Spectrum Universal Addressing the service ValidateAddress becomes available on your system. In other cases, you must create a service in Spectrum Enterprise Designer then expose that service on your system as a user-defined service. For example, Spectrum Spatial services are unavailable until you create a service using a Spectrum Spatial stage.
