Getting Set Up
All web service methods require a unique identifier, called an API Key, typically referenced as “APIKey”. In order to receive an API Key you’ll need to have an approved TicketCity Affiliate account established. You can sign up for an affiliate account at http://www.TicketCity.com/Affiliates/
and upon approval an API Key will be created for you. Because web services are advanced tools not typically utilized by the average affiliate API Keys are not published in your profile. You can contact a TicketCity Affiliate Representative by email (email@example.com
) and request your API Key. Once you have your API Key you’re ready to examine the available web methods. Web Service version 3
is now live, using an improved XML schema. Root nodes for XML output no longer uses the called method name but rather follows generic entity naming standards. For example, now the root node on XML output for all 'event' specific methods is " < Events > ". This should allow for more simple and reusable code development.
