Mostly about Wild Apricot API. Feel free to share examples of your code!

  1. Custom field that a member can only view from a Wild Apricot restricted webpage using the API from JavaScript

    I would like the ability to create a membership database field that a logged-in member can view from a Wild Apricot restricted webpage using the API from JavaScript. Administrators with Membership manager access would be able to view and edit this field.

  2. How to Encode Quotes in PHP for API

    I'm using PHP to create a new event via the API just fine. However if the Name of the event has single or double quotes or an ampersand sign, these get converted to utf8 unicode in the published WA event. I can't figure out what PHP encoding WA needs in the POST/PUT for the Name to get a properly decoded result in the WA admin. I've tried htmlentities(), htmlspecialchars(), and json_encode() to no avail.

  3. Implementing my own payment gateway: is that possible?

    I'm planning to implement my own payment gateway integration (to Omise, a kind of Stripe for South East Asia).

    The plan is to make a "micro-service" that displays the payment page and then push payments to WA Payments Admin API.

    Any red flags? Thanks

  5. Add waitlist count to Events API call

    The Events API returns information about all or selected events. The returned data includes ConfirmedRegistrationsCount and RegistrationsLimit. It would be very helpful to have the API call also return the count of people on the waitlist.
    The Export registrants option in the Admin section doesn't include registration limits.
    Currently, I have to fetch each event and count the number of people on the waitlist for each event. That's a lot of loops. We have a few hundred events to mung.

  6. Deactivate

    I would like to be able to deactivate a member through the API. Deactivating a pending membership is possible through /rpc/{accountId}/RejectPendingMembership, but that doesn't seem to be intended for existing memberships.

    I tried sending a PUT to /rpc/Accounts/{accountId}/Contacts/{member_id} with 'MembershipEnabled: false', as well as setting FieldValues like "Member", "SuspendedMember", and "Membership enabled", but this returned a 400 error.

  7. How to trigger password reset email?

    I have implemented single sign on, but I want my login form to be able to trigger the password reset email (eg a "Forgotten Password?" link on the login form.

    I can see that there is a way to do this manually via the back end, but I need a way to trigger this via the API.

    Thanks

  8. v2.1 getEventDetails returns 404 for existing events

    I have a list of event IDs that I need to verify still exist in WildApricot. For some of them, the call to /accounts/{accountId}/events/{eventId} returns a 404, even though I can search and find them in the admin UI (Events > Event List). I am not passing any filters to the API call.

    Any ideas why the API returns a 404?

  9. Add or update site content via API

    We want to be able to update selected pages and content blocks via the API. For example, our finance committee creates a monthly report that we'd like to publish as an HTML page. Allowing us to PUT and POST content would be very helpful.

  10. Additional, Administrator-defined, Optionally-searchable Content Types

    Think it would be quite useful to have the ability to (optionally) define additional "Content Types", i.e., types other than the default set already provided (Page contents, Blogs, Forums, Events, & Public Member profiles).

    This capability would add an important, new dimension to the site wide Search Gadget, and would provide a user-configurable means to manage the scope of a user's search capability, by role!

    Such that:

    1. Any number of additional (optionally-defined) content types can be established by a site administrator

    2. These optionally-defined content types can be administrator-selected for inclusion/exclusion: (a) By role and (b) In the site search Gadget’s…

  11. Sending email via API

    I'm trying to use the send email API call - https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis-docs/WildApricot/wild-apricot_public_api/2.1.0#/Emailing.Operations/SendEmail but not having any luck.

    I've tried from the API browser and via a Google Apps script. In both, I just get a 400 error.

    I'm POSTing to https://api.wildapricot.org/v2.1/rpc/<ACCOUNT>/email/sendemail, with this as my body:
    {
    "Subject": "test email",
    "Body": "test email",
    "Recipients": [
    {
    "Id": 0,
    "Type": "IndividualRecipient",
    "Name": "test",
    "Email": "<HIDDEN>"
    }
    ],
    "EventId": <EVENTID>
    }

    (account, email and event id have been hidden). Each time, I get a 400 error: Parameter is required: EmailDraftParam.
    The swagger documentation doesn't mention a "EmailDraftParam". What am I doing wrong?

  13. Stripe Connect

    Hi there,
    We understand that Wild Apricot by default allows adding only 1 Stripe/Paypal account in payment settings.
    However we are trying to customize. We want to use Stripe Connect i.e. our Stripe account will have 5 bank accounts added inside it.
    When a user selects 1 of the 5 "Donation Types" from dropdown in donation form, we want to direct the funds to that donation types bank account inside our Stripe account.

    We have a custom php code to achieve this. However how can we use that php code or any other customization you recommend to achieve this functionality…

  14. How to drive the saggerhub api

    Hi. It appears that I should be able to use swaggerhub to pull data from my WA database with the API, but I can't figure out how to do this because the code in the code window of swagger is 'read only'. I can see that I have to change it so that it points to my WA site, and although I have an option to enter API key to authenticate, there seems no way to change the site. Help appreciated

    I have to admit, authorization with login/password through swaggerhub stopped working. Authorization with API key (2-nd in a list) still works.

    I can recommend to use one of these options:
    1 POSTMAN – is a great tool to work with API. It is possible to import swagger description.

    2 Use our test tool at API browser. It is a web application located at https://api.wildapricot.org/ui/home/requestoauthtoken

  15. Provide a working example using XML and Access 2016

    I am converting an existing (working) application based on the excel example provided by Wild Apricot to work with Access instead of Excel. All I need from the API is to download a list of members. I've found that the Excel code does not work with Access. I've found many workarounds on various VBA boards, but I'm stymied at the final step of actually downloading the XML for the membership roster.

    These three lines of code from the LoadContacts sub are the problem. The dim statement does not compile in Access. The error is that the 'user defined type is…

  16. Member Directory Not Updating

    So, the member directory is no longer updating:

    https://www.biawc.com/membership/member-directory/

    I found what the original developer scripted but I'm guessing there is a new version of the API. Can anyone assist me in rewriting the script to get the member directory to update?

    Thanks!

  17. 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

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

    Work in progress  ·  Team Mobile responded

    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.

  20. 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,…
