  1. Trigger API call on Contact Change?

    I would like to use the V2 API to automatically send updates to a FileMaker Pro database (and maybe others in the future) whenever certain fields in a Contact are changed such as name, address, email, etc.

    The documentation on the API is clear and I can manually launch such a PHP program from the browser, but I need to automate the process so whenever a user or an administrator updates a contact record, the PHP program is invoked behind the scenes.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in Advance,

    -Jason Pryde

    • 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.

      • Creating Bundles with API

        All was going very well with the API V2 until I wanted to set up Bundles with the membership. I can create contacts and assign a membership level. But when I try to assign a create a Bundle Administrator or Bundle Member, nothing seems to take. The API says only a Bundle ID and NOT an email address like the Import can use. To automate this process, I don't/can't use the Import process.

        Has anyone been successful in using the API to create a Bundle? (Administrator and/or Member)

        Any help is greatly appreciated. Our trial is almost over and this…

        • Cannot access API from within site pages if not Administrator.

          Hi,

          I have written JavaScript/HTML in a WildApricot site page to display events as a compact list in a table.

          If I login to an administrator account it all works fine, if I login to a non administrator account I get error 403 returned from a get Events API call.....

          "Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Current token does not provide access to scope 'events_view'.)"

          Code snippet is:
          <script>

          generateTable();

          function generateTable()
          {
          var EventsList = getDataFromApi("https://xxxxx.wildapricot.org/sys/api/v2/accounts/xxxxxx/Events?$sort=StartDate asc&$filter=Tags in [training,cruising,racing,racing_crew] AND StartDate ge 2017-01-01");

              • fieldvalues contact api

                I have an interesting issue you can help me with. I am using the Contacts API and calling it from a Javascript call using the WA API wrapper for jQuery. I got this code from the WA developer forum and loaded it into the files section to call locally from the WA install (rather than from the original location).

                http://iarpreiki.org/resources/js/waPublicApi.js

                I am using the API to create a URL that I will pass to an external SaaS system, so I need to collect various contact/membership field data.

                The testing page is at

                • 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.

                  • Sample Excel File for API Connect to WA Make Available for Excel for MAC [14851]

                    It seems that the Sample Excel file for importing data from Wild Apricot was developed in Excel for WIndows. The Import Data macro does not compile because of a Missing:Microsoft XML,v3.0 reference. This XML object is only available in Excel for Windows.

                    Wild Apricot states that it will not be supporting this Excel file at all. That leaves out all MAC users.

                    I have not been able to find any suggestions on line on how to run this Macro or replace the XML object.

                      • Filtering Account Administrators

                        How can I return a list of just account administrators?

                        Using the API Browser, I tried both

                        and

                        $filter="Administrator role.Id" eq 256

                        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.

                          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?

                                Hi,

                                The section “Show registrants who want to be listed” will be added in API soon (second decade of Jan).

                                Schedule for email announcements and reminders can’t be set via API and it is not in our development plans. Is it required to manage email options via API?

                                  Then I enable registrations for any membership level....
                                  {
                                  "Id": EventId,
                                  "RegistrationEnabled": true,
                                  "Details": {
                                  "AccessControl": {
                                  "AccessLevel": "Restricted",
                                  "AvailableForAnyLevel": true,
                                  }
                                  }

                                  When I go to the admin pages of the website the event is not enabled, access is shown as for Admin users only, however the fields in the form are correct.
                                  I have to press "Save" on the form and then the event registrations are enabled.
                                  I have tried all…

                                  • What will you do with the new API?

                                    I'm excited for the API that will be coming out this month (according to this forum: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308920-archive/suggestions/8831320-api-to-read-contact-member-records-2469 )

                                    I see that there are a lot of people interested in the API and I was curious what others will be using it for? I will be using it to integrate Google Maps but perhaps there are some other cool things I can set up that I haven't thought of.

                                    • 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

                                        • Extend functionality of sample Excel file

                                          I will start this post off by saying that I am not a designer or coder, and that will probably be evident by my questions!

                                          I love the new contact record API and using the supplied Excel file I was able to pull our membership database.

                                          My question is this: Is it possible to set up the file to pull just members from a specific region or state and not the entire pool of members? The file for the full membership was around 6mb and took several minutes to run. I'd like to be able to narrow the query so…
