SWS UpdateReservation Method

Updates a reservation and has the same input parameters as the MakeReservation SWS method, but it does require the Quote ID to be passed in. It can also be treated as a transfer of a reservation from one rental item to another or for changing the expected move in date to a future date. Rules govern the expiration date of the quote and another rule also dictates how far out hard reservations can be extended.


Name DataType Is Required
Request MakeReservation_Request Required
Description The information required for creating the request.

Returned Parameters

Name DataType
QuoteID Long
Description The ID of the quote record that was created.
RentalID Long
Description The ID number of the rental that was created. This will be created for every reservation but not a quote only.


As with every method we need to pass in credentials. We do this with the LookupUser request object.

We will assume you have a web reference, let us name it SWS, in your Visual Studio project. At this point we need to define our objects.  We will need the standard service object, a MakeReservation request object, and a MakeReservation response object. We can define and create those like this:

// Create a request and response objects
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.MakeReservation_Request request = new SWS.MakeReservation_Request();
SWS.MakeReservation_Response response;

Here is my sample requesting a change of the reserved unit.

// UpdateReservation request
request.SiteID = 123456;
request.AcctID = 123456;
request.QuoteID = 123456;
request.UnitID = 456789;
request.Version = 34;

Finally we can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to retrieve our requested information. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
  response = service.UpdateReservation(user_request, request);
catch (Exception ex)

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You will want to capture the message in the exception so it can be debugged.
