Obtain your Melissa API Key

  • To use Melissa's API with Sharp XRM, you need to get in touch Melissa's sales team.
  • Once you have obtained the key from Melissa, move on to the next step.
    • Keep in mind, only the following Melissa APIs integrated with Dataverse : 
      • Express Entry
      • Global Address
      • Personator 

Setup your Melissa API Key application parameter 

  • In the navigation bar, go to Address Validation -> Settings -> API Configuration.
  • Create a new record and enter the information as per your configuration.
  • Provide the information as follows:
    1. API Configuration Name: unique name for the configuration. This will be used as an input parameter for the Melissa Express Entry autocomplete control (to tell the control which API key to use)
    2. Validation Service Type: select the address verification API you want to use : Select the Melissa Express Entry
    3. Service License Key: enter your corresponding API key.
    4. Is Valid: after the API configuration is created, click the "Validate API Key" button in the command bar. This action will validate the API key in the background to confirm the key is functional. If the API Key is invalid, you will get an error message on the screen and the value will remain No. If it worked, the value will be set to Yes. [Known issue : In some cases, you might get an error message at this step. Please visit this article regarding the issue, including a workaround to continue]
