Entity: commonFunctional

The commonFunctional entity covers all information about the content of the message. This is typically domain-specific information, while the commonTechnical entity primarily provides technical message-related meta-data.

Example usage

Below is an example commonFunctional entity, filled with some attributes. See AFD 2.0 Online for the complete and up-to-date data catalog with all available entity types and associated attributes listed under the commonFunctional entity. More documentation on the use of SIVI AFS is available in chapter Where to find elements of SIVI AFS.

If the attributes businessLine and porCompany apply to the entire message they should be part of the commonFunctional entity. If these attributes are subject to domain-specific agreements or if they apply to a specific contract, they should be included in that entity (policy, loan, masterAgreement, pension).

	"commonFunctional": [ {
		"entityType": "default",
                "businessLine": "021",
		"porCompany": "A001",
		"afdDefinitionName": "Goed verzekerd op weg",
		"afdDefinitionVersion": "001.00",
		"dataCatalogVersion": "39D",
		"sendingOrganization": "SIVI",
		"senderReference": "J. Janssen",
		"userLanguageCode": "NL"
	} ]

Entity types

There are no entity types within the commonFunctional entity. Entities without an entity type always use “default” as the value for the mandatory entityType attribute (see example above). Most of the attributes from the commonFunctional entity correspond to the AL and MD entities from AFD 1.0.
