Mocking the Interface


OpenActive data has a large number of recommended and optional fields, some of which are not available from all providers.

Although it is always advisable to take a defensive approach due to this variance, in order to future-proof your interface, it can be useful to see all available fields in a single result item.

Dummy Data: Lorem Fitsum

Our sandbox environment contains a data source called "Lorem Fitsum", which produces complete records of dummy data, based in the area of Oxford:

  • Address: 🇬🇧 Oxford, Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom

  • Latitude: 51.7520131

  • Longitude: -1.2578499

loremfitsum data contains two types of record with a rough 50/50 split across both:

  • Randomly generated: these contain a random collection of OpenActive recommended and optional fields, but does not necessarily include all fields.

  • Golden records: these have a "GOLDEN:" prefix in their name property and contain all available fields in the OpenActive, OpenActive Beta, and imin namespaces. Note that other custom properties are available from data providers, documented in their @context, however, these are only present in the results endpoints (e.g. /event-series/:id) and not in the search summaries.

Please see Authentication for information on how to access our dummy data.
