MultiAccessCommandRQ

What is it?

This API is used both internally (Sabre Red Workspace 360) and externally (Infini agents) and was developed as an additional way to connect to existing Infini & Sabre Multi Access subsystems. Previously, these were individually used for many years by Infini in Japan and Sabre agencies worldwide.

Why use it?

This API connects two products: 

1. INFINI Multi Access (MAC) obtains fares, schedules, availability, and other related travel service information from other host systems (1A, 1E, own host systems via T/E connection) while using the Sabre Infini system (LINX, SNTE).

2. SABRE Multi Access (SMA) allows the user to obtain fares, schedules, availability, and other related group travel service information from the group booking tool while using the Sabre system (SRW360, SNTE).

How does it work?

Technical basics include:

  • The Multi Access system is stateful.
  • The user/client needs to send a SIGN-IN command first (example ¤¤BAL) to start a Sabre session (ATH).
  • If a session is created in the Multi Access system, then the Session flag is set to true in the response.
  • All consecutive calls are executed within the user session until the client sends QUIT, or any other command, which ends the session.
