Your Remote App ID

When your integration connects to a Clover device, your semi-integrated application must pass a Remote App ID (remoteApplicationID or RAID) generated for your Clover app. This is separate from your Clover App ID, and both IDs are needed to launch your integration with Clover. The Remote App ID allows Clover to expedite support requests for your semi-integrated solutions, and it enables logging of payments made through your app. Your POS uses this ID when creating an ICloverConnector (Using Clover Connector). Clover checks and verifies the Remote App ID for each call and then uses it to log certain operations. You can create or view your Remote App ID on the Developer Dashboard.

Creating a RAID

  1. Navigate to the Developer Dashboard.
  2. On the side-nav, click the app you want to create a RAID for.
  3. Click App Type.
  4. Select the device type or types used by your integration.
  5. For Is this an integration with an existing point of sale, select the Yes option.
  6. Click Generate RAID.
    A remote app ID is generated.
  7. Click Save.

Viewing an app's RAID

  1. Navigate to the Developer Dashboard.
  2. On the side-nav, click the app.
    The RAID appears on the App Settings page in the App Type row.



If you are creating integrations for more than one platform or connection protocol, a separate app and unique RAID is required for each so Clover can provide reliable support. For example, if you create POS apps for web and iOS clients using the Remote Pay Cloud and Remote Pay iOS SDKs, you should not use the same RAID for both apps. Similarly, an app that can connect to the device using USB or Network Pay Display should set a separate RAID for each connection type.

The format of the RAID is {developerId}.{appId}. If you are integrating POS systems for more than one platform, make sure you are using the correct RAID for each app.

Using the RAID

The Using Clover Connector tutorial for your platform explains the correct way to set the RAID value when connecting to a Clover device.
