Configuration Basics

The Parser is highly configurable to meet your needs, but by default, is configured to parse in a way that meets most users' needs. The SaaS service is stateless allowing the Parser to be configured completely differently for each transaction.

How to Set Configuration Parameters

The configuration string is a Name=Value pair delimited by a ;. In order to configure the parser, pass a string containing settings and values for which you want to override the defaults. How to pass this to the API is detailed in the API documentation.
