ZipPark: SysAdmin Auto-IDs and Events

Modified on Thu, 12 Oct 2023 at 04:35 AM

Auto-ID Data Formats

Auto-ID data formats are needed when barcodes on event reservations contain data in addition to the unique reservation ID. Barcode data will be matched to the table on this page and the reservation ID will be extracted based on the Reservation ID definition. If no match is found, the raw barcode data will be used to look up the reservation.


Regular expressions, or regex, are used for defining how to match barcode data and how to extract the reservation ID. 

For information on using regex, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expression .

To test your regular expressions, see https://regex101.com/ .
