Points of Interest XML File Preparation

Uploading points of interest (POI) files in bulk allows you to create or replace multiple points of interest or addresses for a customer.

All the records in a XML file must be for the same object. When you process XML files:
  • Verify that all requried fields exist.
  • Files must be in UTF-8 format.
The POI data header must include:
<PoiDataHeader customerId="12345467" locationType="7" purgeExisting="true">
This adds an address for customer 1234567; the address is created with a location type of 7, and existing addresses with location type 7 are removed.
In addition to the header, the body of the bulk file should contain:
   <shortName>Starbucks Dublin</shortName>
