Sale environment

CashRegister and PDA environments are so called "sale environments".
Sale environments are specific in several ways:
  • each "sale environment" device can hold up to one active session at the time. That means, if user is authenticated in cash register device and another request for authorization on same device is invoked, the earlier session is terminated by API.
  • some API actions (mainly related to ticket updating) are allowed only for users authenticated on sale environment devices.
