|1. Create a Dev Studio account||Create a free Dev Studio account to gain access to our catalog of APIs.|
|2. Browse our APIs||Use the filters at the top of the catalog to hone your search. If you want to take some of our REST APIs for a spin, navigate to the API using the filters in the product catalog, then try things out on the Reference Documentation tab.|
|3. Get a token||Get your Sabre credentials, then use these to get a token that will allow you to call your desired subset of Sabre APIs. If you're using a sessionless token, consider using an application such as Postman. See our REST API Postman Requests guide for more information. If you're using a session token, consider using SoapUI and our plug-and-play project file on GitHub to get a session token and call the Bargain Finder Max API (access to Bargain Finder Max is required).|

Step 1: Create a Dev Studio account
Create your account on Dev Studio to access your agency's subset of Sabre API documentation.
Sabre API documentation gives you the information you need in order to determine the required data elements for a given API, so you can start building. First, you'll need to register for a Dev Studio account using your agency's PCC.
How to register
- Go to the Register page.
- Enter any memorable user name and password.
- Enter the Pseudo City Code (PCC or iPCC) provided by your Sabre account manager.
- Enter any name in the Application Name field.
Note: This field is arbitrary and only used to name your API Explorer application.
- Check I agree to terms.
- Click Register.
Note: The API Explorer contains a subset of publicly-available Sabre APIs in our certification environment. It does not use your agency's PCC to determine access to your agency's subset of Sabre APIs.
Not a customer yet?
Still mulling things over? No problem.
If you are not a current customer, register for a (free) Dev Studio account. You can take our REST APIs for a spin by using the Try It Out feature under each REST API's Reference Documentation tab.
Step 2: Browse our APIs
- Sign-in to Dev Studio.
- Go to the Product Catalog.
- Use the on-page filters to navigate to your agency or carrier's subset of Sabre API documentation. If you are not sure what your agency or carrier's subset of APIs are, consult your Sabre Account Manager or simply feel free to explore!
- Once you've found the right API/product for your solution, identify the Authentication method that you need to make live calls. The authentication method is listed on every API/product page and is unique to each Target Audience.
Step 3: Get a token
Now that you have spoken to a Sabre Account Manager and/or signed a contract with Sabre, and know which Sabre APIs you have/want access to, it's time to get a token to call Sabre APIs.
Step 4: Discover
Explore workflows for all sorts of common travel transactions to get you started.
Workflows represent common transactions to help you build high-quality applications using Sabre APIs. Each workflow contains a brief list of sequential steps designed to combine Sabre APIs for common scenarios.
Pick up a little more inspiration along the way.

Build faster with sample code
Get a hands-on understanding of Sabre APIs by studying, building, and modifying API code samples. These samples are available in a variety of programming languages and demonstrate how to integrate SOAP and REST APIs. Samples include best practices to overcome development hurdles and are refreshed frequently.
Learn more via the API code samples library.
Note: Additional sample code is available for most APIs on the API's Resource tab in the Product Catalog.
Step 5: Refer to our Developer Guides
These "how-to" tutorials, best practices, and reference guides can help you navigate and address common questions to getting started with Sabre APIs.
Discover best practices, passenger name record requirements, featured orchestrated APIs, how to format a SOAP request, or quick ways to base64-encode your REST API token credentials.
I'm just trying things out and am not a customer yet. Can I use my API Explorer client ID and client secret to create my token credentials?
Yes. Sign-in to Dev Studio, click My Account at the top right, then use your Client ID and Client Secret to create your single base64-encoded string for your REST API token credentials, and get a token. You can use this token to call any of the REST APIs available in API Explorer.
Why don't I have access to documentation for an API that is part of my contract?
You must have created a Dev Studio account and specified your Pseudo City Code (PCC). If you did not create an account using the correct agency PCC, you won't have access to your agency's specific subset of Sabre APIs.
Can I add my PCC to my existing account? I created a free Dev Studio account a while back and recently became a new customer.
No. You must either create a new account, contact your Sabre account manager, or submit a ticket.
Do I have to sign-up for a free Dev Studio account to access documentation?
No. What you see (publicly available) is what you get. If you are not a current customer, signing up for a free Dev Studio account means you get access to the API Explorer.
Note: If you are a current customer, you must sign-up for a Dev Studio account and include your PCC to access your agency's subset of documentation.
