Interfaces & Endpoints

D&B Direct implements version control at the web service level, in addition to the API level. This D&B Direct 2.0 {version} of the Firmographic Product Service is 4.0. When contacting D&B customer support, please provide both the API and Service version numbers. The following table(s) identify version-specific access points for the available API interfaces.
