We’ve released a new improvement to provide the possibility of excluding or including from the search query all those OnRequest options in HotelX Buyers API.
This will allow partners who only work with instant confirmation to filter out of their results any options that are not instantly bookable.
As standard best practice, we recommend that the booking status of every booking is checked post booking flow.
The field ‘status’ is received in the search response and has two possible result values: ‘OK’ and ‘RQ’. You can now filter either of them using the filter StatusFilterInput.
What do I have to do?
If you need this improvement, you should implement the filter Status, you can see an example in our KnowledgeBase. We’ve also added the possibility that plugins follow the same behaviour, in aggregation and preference.
