Master Beds24 API Key - How to

10 months 3 weeks ago #47118 by Emiliano Bertoli
Hi guys,
from 9.12.0 release you added a Master Beds24 API Key:
"...By default Jomres is designed to be a multi-vendor booking platform. Managers who have their own beds24 accounts can import their properties to and from beds24 securely. This setting allows you to override that functionality by having a single api key for all properties. This means that you only need one account with Beds24 however it also means that all charges will be accrued by that one account. Any manager with access to a property will be able to send updates to the property on the beds24 servers. Leave blank to ignore this setting and force property managers to use their own Beds24 accounts. The API key can take any form you want, so long as the key here matches the one in the API Key 1 field in your Beds24 account...."

Can be used in a mixed way ? I mean:
- I add a Master Beds24 API Key: so all property managers will use the Master account
- When the property manager add his own Beds24 API Key the Master one is avoided

Thanks for help on understanding...

In theory that would be doable. I'd be interested in how many other people would want it before I added it, however.

Features are great, I love new ideas, however it's not unusual for new features to introduce extra complexity. If the new feature benefits lots of people then this is acceptable, but if only a handful of people benefit and most people see it an unnecessary burden to be avoided, then that feature doesn't bring anything good to the table.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
