Enhance HEDDA.IO with various Reference Data Services to clean up and enrich your data domains.

Especially if you want to extend your existing data with additional knowledge and information, simple domains often cannot help. With Reference Data Services you have the possibility to validate data against external data sources or to enrich it with other data.

Using the global settings of HEDDA.IO, you can register Reference Data Service company-wide. Once you have registered RDS, you can later assign them to a composite domain within your knowledge base.

HEDDA.IO is delivered by default with 4 reference data services that you can select when deploying using the Azure Market Place:
  • Google libphonenumber Validation
  • Email Validation
  • Credit Card Validation
  • Azure Maps Geocoding
We also add more and more Reference Data Services which you can deploy to your existing HEDDA.IO installation. Currently we have added the Melissa Global Address Verification RDS.


Further Reference Data Services as well as some programming examples are provided as open source projects on GitHub, so that you can easily extend HEDDA.IO with your own solutions.

To configure and add a Reference Data Service, navigate to “Settings” in the HEDDA.IO ribbon, add a new RDS and provide the required URL and API-Key in the opening window. Additionally, it is necessary to link a Composite Domain with the RDS.

To do so, navigate to the RDS button in the “Build & Manage” group and provide the Knowledge Base and the Composite Domain the RDS should belong to.
