Familiarise yourself with the API documentation, which contains all details about the service's functionality, data model, recommended listing and checkout flows and limitations.
There you can sign up on your own for access to our sandbox environment in which you can interact with our API and make some basic calls against our demo data set.
We also have a Postman collection available for you to download.
Please note that our sandbox environment is offered "as-is" and we do not offer support for evaluation users trialing our API.
Once you and your commercial colleagues are ready to build an integration with the Livn API, please contact Livn commercial team to put in place a contract between Livn and you. Once this contract is in place, our team will set up a development environment for you.
To cover all possible booking flow scenarios, we have created 4 Mocker products that cover the dynamic input options of our wizard-style checkout flow.
Once you implement the handling of these 4 product configurations, you have successfully covered the core functionality of our API, and you can rest assured that the offerings in your production catalogue will behave identically.
Furthermore, we understand that seeing and doing often outranks reading when you try to check for something specific while getting familiar with a new API. So we created "Alice", a comprehensively documented (help hints on almost everything) React client built on top of the Livn API.
Alice runs in your browser and allows you to inspect/modify/post API payloads and JSON models whilst providing a simple UI to check things against the design contract and explore and understand the 'inner workings' if you're so inclined.
We use Alice in-house for testing and debugging, as well as during our kick-off meetings when we first meet the developers and tech leads of new integration partners. We tweak and improve the client as we go along.

In order to make designing, building and testing our API much easier we use Postman to make the Livn API collection available. Postman Collections are executable API descriptions and its collection folders make keeping API requests and elements organised. This allows us to work simultaneously to test and push fixes, and new features while working with developers on integrations. For more information, click here.

Once you have completed your implementation, Livn will perform a set of independent tests to ensure that the integration is performing optimally for your specific requirements without causing excessive load on the shared systems and to identify points that might be improved.
Once certification is completed, you will receive a set of production credentials and be ready to sell.
Once you and our team are confident that the connection is running optimally, you will receive a set of production credentials to the live API endpoint. Both the development and production environments operate on the same codebase and the transition to go live should require no more than a simple reconfiguration of the accessed API endpoint base URL.
If at any stage of this development process you have questions or hit a roadblock you can count on our dedicated technical API support.
