QR code scanner does not recognize API key

Status: In Progress

Description: When scanning a valid QR code of a ticket, an error message similar to the below appears on the screen:

  • “Please Verify API Key is Correctly Entered on the Settings Page”

In some cases the server configuration is not allowing the URL (that is coming from the QR code) to go through properly. The URL should be returning a JSON response, but it instead looks to be redirecting to a HTML page. Please contact your hosting provider to investigate this.

In case server configuration is right and confirmed by the hosting provider, then create a support ticket with the following information:

  • Set up a test event in the future and share the URL
  • Set up a ticket for the event that our support team can ‘purchase’ for free, so we can receive a QR code to scan
  • Share with us the API key for the app
