Data Mapping Schema

Mapping your Platform data into the Unit21 System

To flag suspicious transactions and users on your platform, you will need to figure out how to best map your data to our Unit21 system.

There are 5 main sources of data in the Unit21 system:

Entities


This describes either an individual user or a business including financial institutions.

Example Entities:

  • user-123
  • corporation_xyz
  • john_smith

To view all the information that describes an entity such as the name, address, and phone number; see this document: Entities

Instruments


This describes an instrument that was used in a transaction. It is an intermediary between users and transactions.

Example Instruments:

  • bank account 00932854
  • credit card 624574 30435897
  • wallet 5438437-dgfgf-8si87

To view all the information that describes an instrument such as the name, location, fingerprint/ip address; see this document: Instruments

Devices


This describe a device that was used in an action to use/interact with your platform/organization. This is a physical device (not a virtual one) that can be tracked via fingerprint (mac address and ip address as well).

Example Devices:

  • Android smartphone
  • Dell XPS laptop
  • NFC tag

To view all the information that describes a device such as the device name, model, and os; see this document: Devices

Transaction Events


A transaction must include a $ amount and information about the sender or the receiver.

Example Transactions:

  • userA transacts $100 to userB
  • userC sends $89,020.00 to corporationABC
  • instrumentA sends 1BTC to instrumentB

To view all the information that describes an event, see this document: Events

Action Events


An action can be any interaction a user has with your platform (log in, delete user, update permission, download App, click a link...).

Example Actions:

  • corporationABC added 40 new users
  • userC logged in to their android device
  • wallet-dfs654 was deleted

To view all the information that describes an event, see this document: Events
