not authorized to access class [ActiveOffice] or [ActiveAgent]

  • retag add tags

I'm new to rets so I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question. I'm connecting to and trying to get the listing agent and listing office for a piece of property but the L_ListAgent and L_ListOffice fields return numbers. I assume those numbers refer to U_AgentID and O_OfficeID under ActiveAgent and ActiveOffice but when I try to access them I get errors telling me I'm not authorized to access those classes. So how should I get the agent and office names? Am I missing something?

You have a couple of options available:

  • This information should be available in the corresponding "LA1_" and "LO1_" (Field prefix: LA=List Agent, LO=List Office, SA=Selling Agent, and SO=Selling Office) fields. The numeric portion of the prefix is the agent or office slot which can be from 1-3 depending on the MLS configuration, for example. LA2_, LA3_, etc.)

  • If this information isn't enough, you will need to contact the MLS to configure your account for access to the ActiveAgent or Agent resource.

I'm not sure how I missed LO1_OrganizationName and LA1_AgentLastName but they sure make things easier. Thanks.

way easier! Now I don't have to create separate tables, and do a JOIN. Cool. Just wish this 'feature' were better documented.
