Duplicate and Ownership fields

Hi Team,

 

The API documentation shows a Duplicate field that provides more information on the duplicate locations and an Ownership field that indicates whether it's in the same or different account. 

 

We're seeing this appear in the Metadata field for GET requests, but not after successful PATCH requests. 

GET:

  "locationState": {
    "isDuplicate": true,
    "canUpdate": true,
    "canDelete": true
  },
  "metadata": {
    "duplicate": {
      "ownership": "UNKNOWN"
    }
  }

 

PATCH:

  "locationState": {
    "isDuplicate": true,
    "canUpdate": true,
    "canDelete": true
  },
  "metadata": {}

 

Can this data be returned for both methods?

 

 

 

We tested this for multiple locations across accounts and saw that Ownership consistently returns "UNKNOWN" rather than "DIFFERENT" if it's an owner conflict. Is this a known issue? Duplicates within the account return "SAME" as expected. 

 

Thank you!
