Guest Update endpoint

Accepts a POST call and stores waiver details as seen fit. Wherewolf will call this endpoint to share a waiver signed by a guest, this allows your system to create or extend guest details and know when a waiver has been signed.

After a guest have signed a waiver, or after any other update is performed on a waiver record. Wherewolf will execute a POST call to a Guest Update endpoint on your booking system API.

Parameters (on path or as query string):

  • bookingId the booking id
  • bookingGuestId the guest id provided originally with the booking details (if available)


  • API-key API key to allow the request.


  • the Wherewolf waiver id, will be unique across all waivers (you can use it to detect update calls). Be aware the waiver ID is a string with a max of 256 bytes, and it may contain non url safe characters.
  • waiver.pool is the ID used by Wherewolf to identify a Wherewolf app, your endpoint may use this to match the waiver to an account/client.
  • waiver.bookingId the booking id.
  • waiver.bookingGuestId the booking system’s guest id provided originally with the booking details (if available)
  • waiver.lastVisit the date and time of the activity/activities the guest is checking-in. UTC ISO 8601.
  • waiver.status indicates the current waiver status. Checked In, Active, Finalised, Deleted, Ineligible, Loaded, No-Show.

Other Standard Properties

Depending on the use case, the process of check-in may capture other details from the guest, such as “Date Of Birth” or “Where did you hear about us”.

When extra properties are available in the waiver, these could be included in the payload.

When setting up your integration, you will need to decide and define what “Other Properties” may be of use for your clients (if any).

By default, Wherewolf won’t send these unless deemed necessary for your use case and with express permission of your client in accordance to privacy regulation.
