Share a simple client app (developer accounts only)

If you have created a simple client and want to share it with a hotel, you can easily do that using the Copy create link feature. It creates a copy of the client in hotel’s account.

To share a simple client:

  1. Log into the apaleo Dashboard with your apaleo developer credentials.

  2. Navigate to the Apps section and click Connected apps.

  3. On the connect clients page, select the app to use the Copy create link as follows.

  4. Send this link to the hotel.

  5. On clicking the link, the hotel will get the following message.

  6. On this page, the hotel has to review the following details:

    Field Description
    Client code Unique key for the client application.
    Client name Human-readable string name of the client application.
    Personally identifiable information Personal information that is retrieved such as guest name, address, country, etc.
    Secrets Description of your secret.
    Scopes OAuth scopes, or permissions, let you specify exactly how your app needs to access an apaleo user’s account.
  7. Save the app.

  8. Keep in mind that the hotel must send you back the client Id and client secret after creating them. Please make sure to transfer those via a secure channel.

    • Client ID - This identifies the client responsible for the OAuth request. A unique key for the client application.
    • Client Secret - A client secret is a secret known only to your application and the authorization server. It protects your resources by only granting tokens to authorized requestors. Always store the client secret key securely; never reveal it publicly! If you suspect that the secret key has been compromised, regenerate it immediately by adding a new secret to the client application.
