Importing Pass Data

When you are importing Pass data, the data is merged with Pass Templates when they are generated or updated in order to uniquely personalize each Pass.

3. Map the standard Pass fields to the corresponding columns of your CSV/TSV file.

Mapping the imported Pass data

There are a few default fields:

  • Customer Reference: The customer reference, such as an email address, phone number, or customer ID, used to reference a particular customer.
  • Custom Pass ID: The identifier from your system to uniquely identify the Pass data. Note that the Custom Pass ID is required for each data row and must be unique.

4. Once you have finished the mapping process, click the “Import Pass Data” button. Make sure to check the “Skip the first row when importing the Pass Data File” option if the first row in your CSV/TSV file is made up of column names.

5. The Pass data is now imported. Each row (record) will contain Pass data corresponding to a data row from your CSV/TSV file. Now you can deliver unique and personalized Passes to your customers. You can view the status of your import by going to the CSV Import Page in your account.
