Update Booking via API

edited May 2019 in Developers
Is it possible to edit bookings via the API?  I see booking/[booking_id]/update in the documentation, but I do not see a parameter for editing items, dates, etc.  Or do I need to create a new booking with the new information?

Also, how long do booking session exists if it is never used to create a booking? Are booking session destroyed when a booking is created with the session id? Thanks.


  • Hello kg567,

    Thank you for using our forums!

    It is not currently possible to edit the items of an existing booking using the API. One option would be to cancel the existing booking and create a new booking with the adjusted items. Or, you would need to log into the Checkfront dashboard and make the changes to the booking manually.

    A booking session will expire after ~30-minutes of inactivity.

    Yes, creating a booking with a session will "consume" that session ID.

    I hope this helps, and please let me know if you have any more questions. Or, reach out anytime to support@checkfront.com.
