Hi GeoNet braintrust,

 

I think there might be a bug with locators and numbers. If I search for 11048E04001 in the Search widget, or even the Esri REST endpoint for our Parcel ID Number (PIN) locator, it gives an error. https://public.sagis.org/arcgis/rest/services/Locator/PIN/GeocodeServer/findAddressCandidates

 

Change the letter E to an A and it works. In fact, the actual PIN even comes up, of 11048E04001! Maybe it is a scientific notation issue with the REST API?  Although it is a string field of course, as there are many PINs with letters. That was our only thought. Or maybe it is the magickey? Which I have seen cause trouble in other instances such as the rooftop parameter.
