With the release of 'new Sabre Red Workspace' (nSRW) the API that is used to communicate with the Sabre GDS has changed. In previous Red Workspace environments, we used an API known as the EMUAPI (Emulator API). In nSRW there is now a 'NativeAPI' that is used instead. When agencies upgrade to the nSRW they no longer have access to the EMUAPI and our tools stop operating as expected.
PLEASE NOTE: The 'NativeAPI' that we use is only available when using the Sabre Red 360 Desktop environment, it is not available if using the Sabre Red 360 Web Portal.
Navitas Sabre Connector
To ensure our tools keep working with the nSRW, Navitas Solutions has had to redevelop each application against the 'NativeAPI' and release a generic 'Navitas Sabre Connector' to the Sabre Red App Centre to facilitate communication.
The 'Navitas Sabre Connector' must be purchased for your agency from the Sabre Marketplace before any of our applications can work with the nSRW. To process an order for the 'Navitas Sabre Connector, please visit the following page,
SPECIAL NOTE: If you are an Agency with multiple Sabre PCC's - please ensure you only order the 'Navitas Sabre Connector' for the actual PCC's where our software will be in use (and NOT selecting the option to order for your entire agency). This will mean the EPR charges Sabre levies (see the 'Pricing' updates below) will only be raised for the EPR's actually using the software.
Validating Purchase / Install
Once the 'Navitas Sabre Connector' as been purchased and assigned to your PCC, a restart of Sabre Red Workspace may be required to apply any updates to the software available on the users workstation. To validate the 'Navitas Sabre Connector' has been installed, users can visit the 'Contact Us -> Application Vendor Support' menu item,
An entry for 'Navitas Sabre Connector' should be present in the list,
Selecting the 'Navitas Sabre Connector' in the list will display the contact details as shown in the above screen shot. This confirms the Navitas Sabre Connector has deployed successfully and is available within the Sabre Red 360 environment.
