Upcoming Update to Cvent’s WSDL File


On November 4th at 3:00 AM EST, we’ll be making an update to Cvent’s WSDL file. This may require you to update your WSDL file to the newest version.

For testing purposes, the changes are currently available in the Cvent Sandbox region. You can access the updated WSDL here: http://sandbox-api.cvent.com/soap/V200611.ASMX?WSDL

What’s changing and why?

This update will enhance the security of invitee responses to the “Handicap” field. Users must now have the “Secure Reporting Fields” permission in order to view this field.

Going forward, only account administrators and users who have access to the permission can view these responses via SOAP calls or in reports.

As part of this change, we’ll also change the data type of the “Handicap” field from Boolean to String.

What calls will be affected?

If your integration with Cvent uses any of the following API calls, you may need to update your WSDL file to accommodate this change:

Object: Travel

Call: Retrieve

If you’re using this object, then this update may require changes to your code. For further questions about the impact of this change, please reach out to Client Services.
