uamdb create

The uamdb create command creates a new Universal Addressing Module database.


uamdb create --t Type --n Name --c CacheSize --i Country --pl PreloadingType --dt DatabaseType --b BasePath --d DPVPath --l LACSPath --s SuiteLinkPath --r RDIPath --e EWSPath --p Poolsize
Required Argument Description
Yes --t Type Specifies the type of database, where Type is one of the following:
United States database
Canadian Database
International Database
Loqate Database
Validate Address Global Database
Australian Database
Yes --n Name Specifies the name of the database.
No --c CacheSize Specifies the cache size of a Validate Address Global database, where CacheSize is one of the following:
No cache
Small cache
Large cache (default)
No --i Country Specifies the three-digit ISO code(s) for each country in a Validate Address Global database that you want to use, where Country is either "All" (default) or a list of codes separated by comma.
No --pl PreloadingType Specifies the amount of a Validate Address Global database that is preloaded, where PreloadingType is one of the following:
No data is preloaded (default).

Loads the metadata and indexing structures into memory. The reference data itself will remain on the hard drive. Offers some performance enhancements and is an alternative when not enough memory is available to fully load the desired databases.


Moves the entire reference database into memory. This may need a significant amount of memory for countries with large databases such as the USA or the United Kingdom, but it will significantly increase the processing speed.

No --dt DatabaseType Specifies the processing mode for a Validate Address Global database, where DatabaseType is one of the following:
Used in batch processing or interactive environments. It is optimized for speed and will terminate attempts to correct an address when ambiguous data is encountered that cannot be corrected automatically (default).
Used in batch processing environments for Australian mail to standardize and validate mail against the Postal Address File.
Used to enter truncated data in address fields and have Validate Address Global generate suggestions.
Yes --b BasePath Specifies the base subscription database path.
Note: For USA, CAN, and INTL specify the database vintage in place of database path. Example: NOV2017
No --d DPVPath Specifies the DPV database vintage.
No --l LACSPath Specifies the LACS database vintage.
No --s SuiteLinkPath Specifies the SuiteLink database vintage.
No --r RDIPath Specifies the RDI database vintage.
No --e EWSPath Specifies the EWS database vintage.
No --p Poolsize Specifies the maximum number of concurrent requests you want this database to handle. The default is 4.
Note: The database vintage can be obtained using the uamdb listdatasets command. For more information see uamdb listdatasets.


To create a database for UAM US, CAN, or INTL, provide input in this format:

uamdb create --t USA --n UAM_US --b FEB2018 --d AUG2018 --r SEP2018


To create any other database, provide input in this format:

uamdb create --t Loqate --n Loqate_DB --b C:\DBs\UAM\US_JUL14 --d C:\DBs\UAM\Loqate_Q2_2018
