TokenCreateRQ

Security credentials, consisting of a username, password, organization, domain, ClientId and ClientSecret are required to connect. If you don't have a ClientId or a ClientSecret use version 1.0.0 or contact your account manager to acquire these credentials. When a client sends a correctly-formatted TokenCreateRQ message with valid security credentials to any of the designated endpoints (PROD or CERT), the Sabre gateway does the following:

  • Authenticates the request
  • Authorizes the client to access the specific service being called
  • Returns a unique, encrypted security token to the client via the TokenCreateRS response message (wsse:BinarySecurityToken, a child of wsse:Security)
  • Returns the same conversation ID via eb:ConversationId, from the TokenCreateRQ message
  • Returns a reference to the message ID of the corresponding request in eb:RefToMessageId

The conversation ID and security access token are referred to as the connection ID. Their return means the connection to the Sabre gateway has been established and a Sabre Access Token is allocated. The client must extract and store the returned values for eb:CPAId, eb:ConversationId, and the entire wsse:security@wsse:BinarySecurityToken node for inclusion in subsequent requests and workflows that use this particular connection.
