Together, the Sabre Red 360 Software Development Kit, Sabre, and external organizations provide resources for Red App developers. These resources include development tools, documentation, standards organizations, support, and training. Information about how to create the functionality of Red Apps using Sabre technologies is outside the scope of this document. However, Sabre does provide training and documentation on using Sabre technologies. With the exception of Sabre GDS training and other courses on Agency eServices (eServices), you must either purchase licenses or sign a licensing agreement in order to download documentation for Sabre technologies, such as Sabre Scribe and Sabre Web Services.
