Mayor Update Notification - Hotel Buyers API (legacy) - v1.2.53

Dear Partner,

Please be advised that we will stop supporting the StaticConfiguration method in Hotel Buyers API (legacy) and replace it with the existing method MetaData.

We would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to upgrade your connection from our legacy Hotel Buyers API to Hotel-X Buyers API, which has more functionalities and is completely customizable at a request level.

Why is the StaticConfiguration method being deprecated?

Over the last years, the information provided in this method has evolved and improved, rendering the structure obsolete.

What?

The method MetaData, first released in 2018, offers the following advantages over StaticConfiguration:

  • The information in MetaData is structured and separated into sections of the API booking flow).
  • Dated - breaks down the dates on which the fields were updated.
  • Detailed - outlines all the available information in detail.

What do I have to do?

You should implement the MetaData method as soon as possible.

Please the fields of the StaticConfiguration and their equivalent in MetaData, as well as the extra fields only available in Metadata you find it in our knowledge base.
