How Real-Time AML Watchlist Checking Works?

  • Trulioo clients who enable the GlobalGateway Enhanced Watchlist with their verification services receive two distinct sets of data per identity check.
  • The first verifies the identity of an individual, and the second checks against a multitude of government watchlists worldwide.
  • If there is a positive match, or a “hit” on the watchlist, a link directs the user to the watchlist results.
  • The detailed information provided lets clients determine the applicability of the watchlist hit and determine their next steps.

📘

To see the WatchlistHitDetails Object you must set VerboseMode:true in the request.

Once configured, a watchlist response will look like the following:

"AppendedFields": [
  {
    "FieldName": "WatchlistState",
    "Data": "Hit"
  },
  {
    "FieldName": "WatchlistData",
    "Data": ""
  },
  {
    "FieldName": "WatchlistHitDetails",
    "Data": [
    {
        "fields": [
            {
                "name": "Date of Birth",
                "source": "datasource",
                "value": "1909-09-24"
            },
            {
                "name": "Political Position",
                "source": "datasource",
                "value": "description of political position"
            }
        ],
        "name": "name",
        "sources": [
            "datasource1",
            "datasource2"
        ],
        "types": [
            "sourceType1",
            "sourceType2"
        ]
    }
]
  }
],

We have explained each of the components of the above JSON:

WatchlistState: "Hit" or "Clear".
WatchlistData: Either the URL or type of the hit.
WatchlistHitDetails: A JSON array containing the data that resulted in a watchlist hit. You can see the structure in the response example. You must set VerboseMode:true in the request.

  • "fields" have the values for the hit gotten.
  • "name" is the name of the hit data.
  • "sources" is a list containing the sources that a hit was found on.
  • "types" is a list of the types of sources that a hit was found on.
