This account has all the most common product configurations, can be used for any amount of testing you need, and allows you to view products, bookings, as well as Ventrata's API logs.
You can easily register for test credentials by signing up here:
The signup form will ask for your company name, email, and password. You'll need this information to access the Booking Portal where you'll be able to check the bookings you've made, check availability, and view logs.
Once you've created your account you'll be shown a screen that looks like this:
The API endpoint and key you see on that page can be used for testing your integration with our fictional supplier EdinExplore.
With the logins you've just created you can click here to login to the EdinExplore agent portal. You can get to the agent portal here:
It will look like this:
On the "Bookings" tab you'll be able to see all the bookings you've both through the reseller portal but also via the API. This should make it easier to check whether the fields you're setting are correct and if your API calls are being registered correctly.
Sample of a booking in the agent portal
In addition to the booking portal, we also provide a tab "API Logs" which will give you a list of all the API requests we have received from your credentials.
Clicking on one of the requests will then bring up a helpful request/response window.
This header can mark any booking you perform with live credentials as a test sale in Ventrata. This will mean it will not consume any availability, the barcodes will not work, and you will not be invoiced for it. Use
Octo-Env: testfor test bookings and
Octo-Env: liveto turn it off and sell live.
Note suppliers can set your connection into test mode, which will force all of your requests to be processed
Octo-Env: test. This is commonly used if the supplier prefers to additionally review your test bookings with them before allowing you to go live.
