  1. API Timeout

    When I use the API to retrieve my contacts, the request times out.

    Attempt 1: Async

    Sometimes, after about ~120 seconds, I get a 500 Internal Server Error.

    Other times, also after ~120 sec, I get an error with html response text that for a page that says: "Website temporarily unavailable"

    readyState: 4
    status 200 parsererror

    Attempt 2: Async false

    After about 60 seconds I get a timeout error.

    Attempt 3: $filter

    I can filter the number of contacts I'm retrieving down to only 116 records. I get this response in an average of 6638 ms.

    Attempt 4: $filter and…

    • Google Indexing

      So google says it is moving [rapidly I'd say] to mobi-first idenxing. What does it mean? Well, for starter it sounds like the indexing will happen first for ALL sites on a mobile algorithm, and if you are or are not mobi ready... then the fun begins:

            • How do I get all common fields and member fields?

              I'm using the PHP Sample Code, but can't figure out how to get the member fields from the call to the Contacts api. I did a var_dump and there appears to be several arrays. Do I iterate through each array or should I be making a call to the membershiplevel api? Please advise. Thanks in advance.

              • Unable to update contact FieldValues

                I'm trying to update Contact "FieldValues" but having trouble setting the "FieldValues" parameter. I will get a 200 response regardless of how I define it. The following is a generated cURL command using Postman to update the "Archived" FieldValue.

                curl -X PUT -H "Authorization: Bearer XXX" -H "Cache-Control: no-cache" -H "Postman-Token: XXX" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -d 'Id={contact_id}&FieldValues=[{"FieldName":"Archived","Value":true}]' "https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/XXX/Contacts/XXX&quot;

                The contact's "FieldValues" are returned, but the "Archived" "FieldValue" will remain false. I've tried with a few other "Field Values" with the same result.

                What am I doing wrong?

                • Change the batch interface to support the POST method

                  I have been trying to call the batch API interface from Google Apps Script. Apps Script correctly realizes that BATCH is not a valid HTTP method and prevents me from submitting the request. There must also be many other HTTP client libraries that prevent this.

                  The solution is simple - just extend the batch API to also allow a request submitted with the POST method.

                  • Demo Joomla Authentication Module

                    Hi,
                    I've got a Joomla authentication module working with WildApricot which I'm making available for anyone to use.

                    I'm not a PHP coder or joomla expert, so take this with a grain of salt and understand it will need customisation for your site. I've loaded the source on github. I'd recommend it only experienced Joomla/PHP users and you will need to alter it.

                    Hopefully someone with more experience can take this code and make it more generic so others may benefit.

                    https://github.com/psike73/joomla_waauth

                    Allows authentication against WildApricot user/password.
                    Add or remove to defined Joomla groups (ie. member and non-members group)
                    Add…

                    • API cannot change email settings?

                      I've been trying for a while now to get the fields in a contact called:

                      Email delivery disabled
                      Receiving emails disabled

                      to change using the API update contact call. I can change other fields, these two just refuse to change. Is there a trick to this, or is this another one of those 'you can't do it' features?

                        • Attempting to use mod_auth_openidc to authenticate with SSO, OAuth2 standards?

                          I'm attempting to configure our third party website using Apache and mod_auth_openidc to invoke the SSO authentication endpoints on our WildApricot website.

                          I've gotten as far as manually assembling a correct authentication request URL:

                          https://discoamigos.wildapricot.org/sys/login/OAuthLogin?response_type=authorization_code&scope=contacts_me&client_id=...&state=...&redirect_uri=...&nonce=...&claimed_account_id=...

                          That shows me a login dialog as expected... However, when trying to use mod-auth-openidc to generate the authorization URL, it doesn't allow the request_type of "authorization_code". It only lets me set the request type to "code", which seems to break the authentication page fetch on the WA end.

                          This would seem to be an issue with Oauth2 'standards'. It would seem request_type="authorization_code" isn't a…

                            How can I return a list of just account administrators?

                            Using the API Browser, I tried both

                            both return this cryptic error:

                              Filtering of account admihnistrators is not supported yet. If you are not sure that filtering for some field is supported, then you can look at contact field description. ‘Administrator role’ field has flag “SupportSearch”: false. That’s why filtering fails.

                              We will implement such filtering in one of future updates.

                              Will it be possible to somehow integrate the Integrated Biometrics product below into the Wild Apricot:
                              http://www.integratedbiometrics.com/products/curve/

                              I want to use it to register contacts (members / clients / attendees) when arriving at an event (or meeting).
                              This will speed up registration a lot.

                              On the first contact (new client) with the person, the detailed information (name and other attributes) of the person will be captured together with a finger print (will be later used for repeated registration).

                              When performing registration the next time, as the contact information will be already available on the system, the contact…

                                Does anyone has done a data sync between Apricot and another data source such as your own database? the API only handle one piece of info at a time and there is no data flow chart for us to understand how adding a new member works from end to end. such as a bundle api or the chain of the API call to achieve this.

                                • HTTP 403 Response from request for oAuth token

                                  Hi,

                                  When I try to get an oAuth token I get a http 403 response from the wild apricot service.

                                  I am using the following:
                                  URL: https://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token
                                  Post parameters: grantType=authorization_code&code=c189e8da588321ca0317be0c78860fe4&client_id=tlccvWebsite&redirect_uri=http://localhost/wa-ssotest/AuthServlet&scope=contacts_me
                                  Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
                                  Authorization: Basic with base64 endoded credentials
                                  The request os a POST request.

                                  Any help to resolve this would be much appreciated!

                                  Thx,
                                  Heidi

                                    • Customer and member creation from another system.

                                      We are planning to create Customer and member information from another system into WildApricot. Our Chapter membership uses WildApricot and we would like to automate chapter membership information from our system to WA database through web services call. Has anyone implemented similar work or recommendation.

                                      Thanks.

                                      Sundar

                                      • API Event Registrations - Support filters beside list of ID's ?

                                        Does anyone know if the event registration call supports filters other than the list of ID's mention on the help page.

                                        Events can be filtered much like contacts but it does not specify for event registrations.

                                        I want to limit the list of registrations returned for a contact to only those today or later.

                                        • Auction from within WA

                                          My club conducts an annual auction which supports both silent and live components. Has anyone created an auction plugin or software that would integrate the Wild Apricot contact database and allow an auction to be administered from within the website?
