What is it?

This method is used to issue tickets.

Why use it?

Use this method to finalize contracts between customers and rail vendors.

How it works

  1. Use this endpoint to send a request to the Rail vendor system.

  2. The order's status is changed to confirmed, and tickets are generated with a status of "issued".

Notes

  • Travel documents are available for each ticket. In order to receive them call the PUT /v2/rail/orders/{marketingCarrierCode}/{id}/travelDocuments method.
  • The payment itself is not part of this method. It is a separate process from the CSR API.
  • Order Cancel is no longer available. Instead, the Void method can be called to cancel tickets if the Rail vendor's business rules enable it.
