Solve Kisi sync errors

Your app allows you to grant Kisi access based on a subscription, room or desk bookings and revoke it automatically when it expires.

Here are the most common types of errors you can face in the app and how to solve them.

"No Locks"

Some users and companies may see the "No Locks" message on the Access page, despite having a subscription created. This usually happens if you still need to add locks to your Kisi group.

To solve this, do the following:

1. Open the Kisi dashboard > add locks to the necessary Kisi group and save changes.

2. Open your app > go to Community > open a user or company profile > select a subscription > double-check the Kisi group and tap "Save".

"Please ask an administrator to disable the Kisi Reader restriction"

Users can see the "Please ask an administrator to disable the Kisi Reader restriction" error after trying to unlock a door on the Access page. This error message appears because your Kisi lock is configured to only open using Bluetooth.

Your app sends a request to the Kisi server to open the lock through your app, in this case, Bluetooth is not needed. To solve this issue please follow the steps below:

  1. Open your Kisi dashboard.

  2. Disable the Bluetooth requirement for the lock in the Kisi app.

"You have to confirm your email address before continuing"

Users can encounter an error message that says, "You have to confirm your email address before continuing" while opening an Access page in the app. This happens when an administrator manually adds a user to the Kisi dashboard, but the user doesn't confirm their email address in the email sent to them by Kisi.

If the same user is added to the app later and has an active subscription, room, or desk booking, they are synced to Kisi twice. Meanwhile, their email address hasn't been verified by Kisi yet, and your app cannot override it.

The solution depends on whether the user receives access based on the subscription or on the room or desk booking.

  • If the user was given access to Kisi with a subscription, follow these steps:

    1. Go to your Kisi dashboard > remove the user from all Kisi groups.

    2. Navigate to the Community page > open a user/company profile > open their subscription > in the "Access" section, choose "Not selected" > press Save.

    3. Reopen the user/company subscription > select the necessary Kisi group > press Save.

  • If the user has made a future room or desk booking, go to your Kisi dashboard > remove the user from all Kisi groups. The user's data will be synced to Kisi, and the user will be given access correctly before the booking start.

  • If the room booking has already started and the user cannot receive access due to this error, follow these steps:

    1. Go to your Kisi dashboard > remove the user from all Kisi groups.

    2. Navigate to the Rooms page > select the ongoing room booking of this user > press Edit in the top right corner > change the booking end time to any later time > press Save.

    3. Press Edit one more time and return the booking end time to the proper one. These actions will grant the user access anew.
