Inserting your details

Starting from the top left, you have Type. This will be RESO.

Moving down, you have Domain. As an example, we’ve used - api.bridgedataoutput.com.

Below that, you’ll insert your Server Token. This is something that you will gather from the admin area of your MLS software or MLS provider. In our example, the server token is - 7c6cfc3e1550131525079729a5bf72b2.

Moving to the top right, you’ll insert your name. This can be any name you want.

Finally, below that, we have Dataset. Here, you’ll see - api/v2/OData/test. This is a test example. For this, you will also need to go to the admin area of your MLS software or MLS provider

At the very bottom of this form, there’s a section called Browser token. For this application, you will not need to fill this out.

And that’s it. Within minutes, you can fully connect your RESO database with Flipsnack so that you can create stunning real estate publications effortlessly.
