  • Hi Taliv,

    Thank you very much for reaching out to us, I hope you're doing well today! My name is Jay and I will be helping you with your API question.

    It looks like the booking session is empty when the booking is being created. You can double-check that the item is being added to the session by querying booking/session (http://api.checkfront.com/ref/booking/session.html) before creating the booking. 

    If the item is not being correctly added it is possible the headers of your query are missing a "content-type". If there is no "Content-type: application/json" on your POST query, then the body will be ignored when being added to the session, resulting in no item being in the session.

    I hope this helps! If you need further help, feel free to let us know and we can investigate further. You can also email us at support@checkfront.com with any questions you may have.

  • Hi Jay,

    I am passing session id which is got from API  'GET /api/3.0/booking/session' which is correct as per the reponse of API 'GET /api/3.0/booking/session'. 

    Let me share below code for create booking

    $wp_request_headers = array(                             'Content-Type' => 'application/json', 'Authorization' => 'Basic ' . base64_encode( '181f7d9c0121bcf1568xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:49edd184a94d8aca5476d0bd3c0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' ) );
    $itemResponse = wp_remote_post ( hosturl.'booking/create', array(   'session_id'=>$_POST['itemSessin'],   'customer_email'=>$_POST['email'],    'customer_name'=>$_POST['name'],   'customer_phone'=>$_POST['phoneNumber'],           'customer_address'=>$_POST['address'],           'customer_city'=>$_POST['city'],           'customer_country'=>$_POST['country'],           'customer_region'=>$_POST['region'],           'customer_postal_zip'=>$_POST['zipcode'],   array('header' => $wp_request_headers)));

    Please correct me or code whrere i am doing wrong.
  • Hi Taliv,

    Thank you for getting back to me. The only thing I'm able to see immediately is 'session_id'=>$_POST['itemSessin'] may be misspelled. I would recommend double-checking to make sure that itemSessin matches the variable being used.

    If that is correct, would you be able to email in to support@checkfront.com with your account details? I would love to take a deeper look and debug this further for you. 

    I look forward to your email!
