Functions: AcceptGames

Overview

The AcceptGames sends approved games, by the assigner from the holding table in ArbiterSports, to the partner who sent it.  The information is sent through a push API call to the third party. 

In order to receive assignment information, the assignment must meet the following criteria:

  1. The game originated from the third party
  2. The assigning account currently receives game from the third party

Assigners have a page that displays all failed API calls, typically from a mismatch in teams, sites, or levels.  On this page, assigners can import games that failed when being inserted.  When a game previously failed, a negative game number was returned to the partner.  Once the assignment is imported, a call to the partner provides the negative game number along with the new game number.

Because the failed game number was initially sent, partners should save that game number and then update it to the positive game number once the game is imported.
