Pass builder

The Pass Builder is an interactive tool that lets you customize and preview a basic pass. All you have to do is fill in the form fields and the Pass Builder will output the Passes Class and Passes Object definitions you can use to create an actual pass.

Pass Builder doesn't support all customizable pass fields, but is a great way to get started and familiarize yourself with some of the most common pass customizations. For a complete list of pass fields, see the reference documentation.
