Creating a Database

Validation databases enable the codeREADr app to check if the value of a scanned barcode (or NFC tap, manual entry, search entry, etc.) exists in that database. If it does, it will return a Valid message to the app user and any related information (the 'Response' text). If the value is not in the database it will return an Invalid message or Invalid Duplicate, if so enabled.

Important: You do not need to use barcodes generated by codeREADr. Most cleints use their own barcodes and simply upload the barcode values (IDs) to our servers or keep them on their own servers for validation.

Examples:
* Tickets with barcodes scanned will be matched to determine authenticity.
* Check if an item or asset exists in the database
* Verify if a member, student or employee's ID is valid
