Universal Web Services.NET
Universal Background Screening’s Universal Web Services.NET™ implements the HR-XML Consortium’s BackgroundCheck.xsd and BackgroundReports.xsd with no extensions. The web service utilizes SOAP 1.1 and 1.2 as default transport protocols. Alternatively, the service also accepts XML messages without a SOAP envelope. All transmissions must be encrypted through the use of 128 bit HTTPS encryption. The service requires authentication through the use of account credentials supplied by Universal during the implementation process.
Universal Web Services.NET allows our clients and partners to automate the background screening process by transmitting HR-XML BackgroundCheck request messages to us. Depending on client needs and configuration, the BackgroundCheck request may contain all necessary data to initiate an order, or Universal’s system may automatically append the order to include additional components, such as criminal searches in locations based on a Social Security Trace. Alternatively, the data can be stored in a “draft” format that allows the user to modify the background check order through Universal’s web-based application.
Upon completion of a background check report, Universal Web Services.NET returns HR-XML compliant BackgroundReports to our client/partner’s Web Service. BackgroundReports may contain all data elements or only summary results based on client specifications. Universal Web Services.NET also includes the flexibility to receive requests and send reports in non-HR-XML and other proprietary XML message formats.
