General properties

Certain processes or procedures are related to financial data, but the data itself has no direct bearing on (for example) a policy, pension or claim. For example the outcome of a product comparison, a visit report, the current account statement of an agent or the KYC report of a prospective customer. What they have in common is the fact that there is a relationship with a party in a certain capacity. Therefore, the party entity is the main characteristic of this partyStructure. Since these are situations where the policyStructure or claimStructure do not apply, the policy and claim entities are not present.

Mandatory components

The table below contains the mandatory entities and attributes of the partyStructure. Please note: these are only the mandatory components; in this case only the presence of a party entity. In many functions and messages, the message will be more extensive, including policy, object and coverage entities, and often a commonFunctional entity. See later in this section for a more detailed example.

Name Occur. Type Description
partyStructure 1..1 entity Structure of party related data, based on AFD attributes
party 1..* entity The main entity of the party structure.
entityType 1..1 string Unique identification of an entity.

JSON example

Below is an example of a partyStructure, including a commonFunctional entity and an attachment. Note that at the top level within JSON, the partyStructure entity is not explicitly mentioned. When the partyStructure is nested within other structures, the partyStructure is given an explicit tag. In XML, the structure is always explicitly defined at the highest level as well.

{
	"commonFunctional": [ {
		"entityType": "default",
		"function": "17",
		"dataCatalogVersion": "36D"
	} ],
	"party": [ {
		"entityType": "policyHolder",
		"surname": "De Vries",
		"firstName": "Janna",
		"country": "NL",
		"genderOrLegalPersonCode": "V",
		"email": "j.de.vries@hotmail.com"
	} ],
	"document": [ {
		"entityType": "default",
		"sequenceNumber": 1
	} ]
}
