Red App Advisories
Compliance with Red App Requirements and Standards
You must examine your Sabre Red App projects to ensure that your plug-ins comply with all Red App requirements and standards.
Additionally, if you create a project that is based on the Red App sample plug-ins, you must put the content of the Sabre Red 360 classes into your own new classes and new packages. Sabre will not accept or certify Red Apps with classes or packages that are taken from Red App sample plug-ins.
Sabre Scan Charges
Both agency clients and Sabre Red App Certified Developers are billed for scan charges when they access Sabre GDS content through either the Sabre emulator or Sabre Web Services in the Production environment.
Agency customers are billed for scan charges whenever their client Red App consumes any of the Sabre Communications Services that are called by the Red App that is deployed to their Sabre Red 360 desktop. These scan charges are also applied to developers when they consume Sabre GDS content during development and testing of their applications.
Three types of scan charges may be applied: basic, fare, and search. Basic type scans cost less than fare or search type scans.
Sabre Red App certified developers may want to consider the types of scans that are associated with the applications they are developing. This may help with client design and user interaction by limiting the more expensive searches and caching responses.
As an example, Sabre Red App Certified Developers may impose constraints on the types of searches that end-users can do, and the quantity of searches they can perform. Letting end-users search for all availability and fares without specific dates is more expensive than searches based on specific dates.
Developers may also want to cache responses whenever it makes sense, but they must also be aware of limitations on the data that is retrieved from the Sabre GDS, such as the length of time for which data is valid.
The Sabre Red 360 Developer Toolkit does not limit flexibility when it comes to creating meaningful workflows for organizations and customers. However, there are efficient ways to build client applications and workflows to minimize scans, which helps to minimize costs to agency clients.
For more information about scan charges, please consult your Sabre Red App Developer Contract or contact your Sabre Account Manager.
