REST API accessing images

  • will give you specific information that relates to the link. eg there is a patron end point that provides information about the patron and a ticket end point that focuses on ticket information
  • can be modified to only select specific columns
  • can have a sort order provided and data will return in that order
  • can have a query provided to only select data that you want

When a membership is selected and the Select button clicked or the control number is manually entered it's details will appear in the Membership Payment window.
