Address inheritance

Network address inheritance simplifies address management by applying the address of a parent HCO to its child HCP or HCO addresses for all locally managed records.

Note: Network address inheritance is not supported for Veeva OpenData or third party master records.

When address inheritance is applied:

  • By default, a set of fields are copied from the parent address with the exception of custom fields.
  • Mandatory fields must be included when address fields are inherited.
  • Address ordinals are not inherited from the parent address.
  • Address inheritance runs when entities are updated through DCRs or data loads, or through scheduled refreshes.
  • Address inheritance can be managed when data stewards are processing data change requests.

Enabling this feature

The following tasks are required to enable this feature:

  • Veeva Support: Enable Network address inheritance.
  • Administrator:
    • Add the following property to a source subscription in Advanced Mode: "job.nai.enabled": "true"
    • Enable address inheritance for the Network instance.
    • Configure address inheritance rules.

Note: To use Network address inheritance with CRM, it must also be enabled in both CRM and the Network instance. A CRM administrator must enable and map the controlling_address_vod__c and controlled_address_vod__c fields to parent_address_vid__v and parent_address_sync__v, respectively.
