US Postings - Implementing deduplication improvements

23 hours and 59 minutes

The maintenance is now complete. Thanks for your patience.


The scheduled maintenance is now underway. We'll keep you updated on our progress.


For go forward Lightcast products, we are targeting Nov 3 for this improvement. (The previous message regarding an implementation window of Nov 2-6 was sent here in error as it only applies to the Burning Glass US NOVA Feed. The non-applicable message has been deleted from this notice. Apologies for the confusion.)


Alongside this change, the posting IDs will change to a new format. Previously, although stored as strings, the IDs appeared as integers. With this change, the new ID format will both be stored and appear as strings.


We are improving our postings deduplication processes for US postings. This will result in more robust reporting on the number of postings a given company has. We are expecting postings numbers to decrease by 2-4% in the last 3 years. Please see the following article for more details
