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

Column mapping

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 identify the pass or pass data. Note that the Custom Pass ID is required for each data row and must be unique.
  • Authstring: Authorization strings that are used in the generatePassById and generatePassByRef API to validate the issuance of a pass. Authorization strings can be in the form of password, passcode, date of birth, etc.

Additional pass fields are included only if the fields in the pass template are set to dynamic from within the Pass Template Builder.

5. Once you have finished the mapping process, press 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.

6. 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 audience members.
