Website Integration Options
Agile Ticketing provides several options for integrating the ticket purchase process into your website. Check out the document below to see further details about these options.
Event Feed API
Agile Ticketing’s WebSales Event Feed allows third party developers to easily pull information from our database into their websites. This level of integration is used most often since it requires less time and coding than the deeper API integration. The feed is available for request as JSON or as XML and there are several query parameters that allow for manipulation of what is returned. It can also be requested as a file download which can be periodically digested into an external site.

Important Information About WebSales Event Feed Usage
The Agile Ticketing WebSales Event Feed has usage limits to avoid overuse degrading the overall user experience. The limits are primarily here to protect the system from over use by external systems, not to restrict you as a user and can be evaluated on an as needed basis.
If you are building a web page using the Agile Ticketing WebSales Event Feed, we recommend that you do all GET requests on the server side, and cache the results for a short period of time. If you get substantial traffic on your site you would not want to call the WebSales Event Feed each time you get a page hit, since this may cause you to hit the request limit faster than expected. In general, whenever you can cache data like this you should do so. The WebSales Event Feed data on the Agile server is only updated every 10 minutes so getting the data more often than that won’t give you much of an advantage.
Remember that the internet can be unreliable. Your application should not assume it will get an answer. By using proper caching of the WebSales Event Feed data on your server you will be able to provide a consistent user experience even if there are internet issues between your server and Agile.
Refer to the documentation below for more information about how to use Agile’s Event Feed.

Agile Ticketing’s API documented above will provide most organizations what they need to have a seamless integration between their site and Agile Ticketing. We also offer an advanced API for Sales and Scanning that can be utilized for integrations that may want to handle more advanced sales operations. This API is available by invitation only. It is designed to allow third party developers to leverage our ticketing infrastructure to build an extremely custom integration with their site. Additional fees will apply for the use and maintenance of these custom API integrations.
