  1. Using API on MS Access 2016

    I extended the excel sample API V2 app to develop an attendance system for our club. For a number of reasons, we're working to move off of Excel and onto Access. The sample code from WA runs smoothly on Excel, but not on Access. The sample includes the following (in function GetOAuthToken)

    Dim httpClient as IXMLHTTPRequest
    Set httpClient = CreateObject("Msxml12.XMLHTTP.3.0")
    httpClient.Open "POST", url, False

    (where url = "https://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token")

    The client.open returns 'unauthorized'. I cannot find any documentation on the open method of the httpclient object. And I have no idea what extra authorization I need when working in…

    • Single Sign On Very simple Ruby on Rails snippet

      Hello,
      I have been able to implement bare bones Wild Apricot single sign on steps in a blank Ruby on Rails project, thanks to Wild Apricot support! Please find attached a redacted and commented version of the code here for anyone who is trying to do similar with their own custom web app. This snippet prints out the ID of the user who is signed in.
      Cheers!

      • Orders-products vs Payments?

        Hi Everyone,

        I would like to integrate shop orders and payments with an external platform, this means whenever a user buys a digital product through the store, the content is unlocked in the external platform.

        I'm digging around the API and found a complete API for payments and invoices but, unfortunately, payments and invoices don't have any relationship with orders and products.

        Are this unimplemented methods of the API?

        Thanks in advance for any response

        • Anyone having problems getting 502 (bad gateway) response from API?

          I am continually getting 502 responses from the API but they are inconsistent. Some requests go through without a problem but at another time, the same request that worked, say 20min ago returns a a 502. I am trying to isolate the problem but i don't know where to start. I have not changed anything in the header, url, or the url parameters. It seems the API just stops processing my requests.

          I'm using Postman and I have also written some PHP scripts based on the PHP samples provided on Github.

          Has anyone had this experience? I would like to…

          • I have successfully integrated the WA API into Integromat

            Integromat.com is like Zapier or IFTT but a bit more powerful AND easy to use. I'm added an authorization Connector and two modules for retrieving and filtering Contacts. Using their Slack integration I can now ask for Integromat to calculate a Membership Report and report back to Slack. Next up is a "new member" notification.

            • API endpoint for allowing users to cancel registrations

              The new feature added today to allow users to cancel their own registrations is a good start, but we need to be able to set it through the API for it to really be useful. Is there a plan to add this in the near future?

              • Event registration types created via API cannot be edited in the web interface

                It is no longer possible to edit an event registration type in the web UI if it was created via an API call. Attempting to load these registration types causes Uncaught Error: Invalid cancellationBehavior to be thrown in the console and the page spins forever without loading.

                Unfortunately due to the asinine piecemeal implementation of the API it is only possible to set this field through the web interface. See the issue? Yet another reason why you should use your own dang API; you could catch these issues before they break your customers' workflow and piss them off.

                  An ability to setup cancellation options will be added to the API in the next release – approximately at the end of the month. It’ll fix this issue also.

                  Currently, we fixed all broken registration types (the cancellation option was set to “not allow”) but unfortunately new ones will be created with the same problem for now.

                • Monthly list of new users

                  I am attempting to create a google doc for our Printing/Mail vendor to easy grab info on the members that renwed or signed up in the last 30 days. The idea is the vendor would just open this share google doc once a month, run the report, export the data.

                  I am using your example from: https://github.com/WildApricot/ApiSamples/tree/master/GoogleScript

                  function getCardData(){
                  Logger.clear();

                  var ui = SpreadsheetApp.getUi();
                  var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getActiveSheet();
                  var urls = urlBuilder();

                  var token = getToken(ui, urls.getAuthServiceUrl());
                  var accountId = getDataFromApi(urls.getAccountsListUrl(), token)[0].Id;
                  var filter = '\'Renewal date last changed\' ge 2017-10-01 AND \'Mebership Status\' eq Active'
                  var query = getDataFromApi(urls.getCardDataUrl(accountId,…

                    • How can I sync WA API and Azure Active Directory?

                      We are looking at using WA with Office 365 to collaborate with our members. Office 365 uses the Azure AD environment which accepts most setups. My question is how we could export WA member data to Azure AD as 'B2B external partners' or, better yet, native AD accounts.

                        I am creating Events using the API and cannot see how the following fields can be set (I can set these as an Administrator in the website) .....
                        Show registrants who want to be listed
                        to everyone
                        to members only
                        Include pending registrations

                        Also I cannot see how the schedule for email announcements and reminders for an Event can be set via the API?

                          Status update in case someone new will see this topic:
                          The section “Show registrants who want to be listed” have been added to API already.

                          Schedule for email announcements and reminders can’t be set via API at the moment.

                          As a workaround, you could create a template event on the web, set the start date in the distant future and all settings you need. Then you can clone it via POST request:
                          api.wildapricot.org/v2/rpc{AccountId}/CloneEvent
                          The request body should be like this:
                          {“EventId”: 123456}

                                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.

                                • 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.

                                    • 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 v2 Events - AccessLevel and Sorting

                                        Hi,

                                        I'm using the API v2 to extract Events for a custom event list in another site. So far, the API is working.

                                        I can get a list of event objects, but they seem to be in the order in which they were entered, not in the order of their dates! (date order should be the default sort, IMHO) Is there a way I can specify the sort order in the request URL?

                                        Also, the API returns ALL events regardless of access level: is there a way to restrict the returned set to be just public events?

                                        Thanks.

                                        • 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.
