To configure your ACME system for integration with Tiqets, please review the guidelines below.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Step 1: Decide how Tiqets products align with your ACME configuration
- Event Template: When a customer purchases tickets to your venue through Tiqets, to which event will the ticket apply? In most cases, it will be your Admission event. If you offer additional ticketed events such as exclusive tours or special exhibitions through Tiqets, then there may be multiple event templates to align with Tiqets items.
- Ticket Types: Which ticket types for the event(s) align with the types that are offered? You may opt to use existing ticket types like 'Adult' or 'Child', or if you prefer to have a distinct ticket type for these visitors, you may configure unique ticket types, like 'OTA Adult', 'OTA Child', for example.
Step 2: Configure an Organization Reseller record in ACME backoffice for Tiqets
- All tickets purchased through Tiqets will be passed to ACME under an Organization record.
- If you do not already have an Organization record for Tiqets, you will need to create one.
- Recommendation: Categorize with an Organization Category such as "Tour Operator", "OTA", "Tourism Partner" or something similar.
Step 3: Configure a user name and request an API key
- Create a general user (not an email user) 'api_tiqets' and set a default password
- Create a new group, or assign to an existing group. Ensure that the group has roles with the following permissions:
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request an API key for this user
Step 4: Provide configuration details to your Tiqets contact
- Event Template ID(s)
- Navigate to your event template(s) in back office
- The Event ID is embedded in the URL in your browser
- You will need to provide an Event Template ID for all events that Tiqets is selling for your venue.
- Ticket Type IDs
- Open the Developer Tools in your browser (Right-Click "Inspect", or Ctrl-Shift-I), go to the Network tab
- Navigate to Pricing>Ticket Categories in back office
- In the Name column, Select "types..."
- Expand Payload and List
- Find the ticket types in list
- Organization ID
- Navigate to view the Tiqets organization record
- The Organization ID is embedded in the URL in your browser
Note: If you are configuring these items in a Sandbox environment to test prior to activating the integration in Production, your IDs will not be the same in both Sandbox and Production. When you re-configure the items in Production you will need to provide the Production IDs to Tiqets.
