  • Each Secretary of State office provides a status for the registration filing. Enigma maps each of these statuses to “active”, “inactive” or null.
    • This status field refers to whether the filing is considered active or inactive in the state in which it was filed, but does not take into account the “standing” of a filing.
    • For example, each of “Good Standing”, “Active”, “In Existence”, “In Existence but not in good standing”, and “Active/Owes Current Year Ar” are mapped to Enigma’s “active” category.
    • Examples of fields mapped to Enigma’s “inactive” category are “Forfeited”, “Dissolved”, “Terminated”, “Inactive”, “Suspended” and “Expired”
    • Any registration filing without a status description is mapped to null
