Generate Session ID

You can generate a UUID using a free tool such as Online UUID Generator.

All autocomplete searches require a session token, with the same token used for all subsequent autocomplete requests until a place is selected from the autocompleted list. The same session token can be used again to call the Place API for the place information, but can not be used again after that.

Failing to provide a valid session token results in the following error:

  "errorType": "input_parse_error",
  "message": "Failed to parse input. Error message: Attempt to decode value on failed cursor: DownField(sessionId)"
