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

  1. Event Registration is not enabled after creating Event via API

    Hi,

    I have creates a Google script to upload event from a Google spreadsheet.

    I create the event with "RegistrationEnabled": false
    Create the RegistrationTypes for the event.
    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…

  2. 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…

  3. API - Implement CORS for Cross-Domain API requests

    Currently the API does not support cross-domain requests which makes it impossible to call the API from within WA or any other site. The whole Idea of API's and web services is to be able to fetch data from other sites to use in you JavaScript code.

    I can only get access to the API if I disable cross-domain security in IE. Other browsers are more difficult.

    CORS is a web standard that was developed to handle cross-domain requests. It should be fairly simple to adjust your web server to handle CORS and pre-flighting

  4. Javascript access to Contact/Member/Event data

    I would love to have data available to JavaScript that can be used to access other contact, membership, or event data that may not be available on a page or widget.

    For instance, I have a case where I need to display links based on whether they belong to a certain membership group or membership level.

    There is some 'BONAPAGE' global variables that can be accessed for system or page view status but nothing for the record of the current screen you may be viewing.

    It would be great if there was a global object(s) available that contained the current…

    Public API is now available for javascript access by path http://your_account.wildapricot.org/sys/api/….

    This means that:

    • AJAX requests to API is in the same domain
      *JS application is able to access API without token
    • AJAX requests directed to the same domain as
    • JS access API with the same permissions as currently logged in user.

    Please read more on help site:

  5. API V2 authorization "invalid_client" error

    Hi, I'm trying to do v2 authorization (from Java), and getting an invalid client error.

    My setup reads (edited for brevity):

    HttpPost post = new HttpPost(AUTH_URL+"/auth/token");

    post.addHeader("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded");

    post.addHeader("Authentication","Basic "+Base64.encodeBase64String("APIKEY:"+API_KEY));

    List <NameValuePair> nvps = new ArrayList <NameValuePair>();

    nvps.add(new BasicNameValuePair("granttype", "clientcredentials"));

    nvps.add(new BasicNameValuePair("scope", "account"));

    post.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nvps));This seems a perfect mirror of the php and c# samples, but in return, I'm getting the remarkably useful:{"error":"invalidclient","errordescription":null,"error_uri":null} Any ideas?Thanks,GeePawHill

  7. Authenticating a Member or Contact (with iOS app)

    Hi - I am writing a custom iOS app using the WA API and a requirement is that members sign into the mobile app with the same credentials that they use to access the WA site via a browser (i.e. email, password)

    The "contacts" API returns the user's email but not the password (which would clearly be a security issue). So the iOS app cannot verify the members credentials itself.

    Is there an API that the iOS app can call to verify the members password? If not, do you have any other suggestions on how this type of member sign…

  8. Is it correct that users cannot get their membership data via API?

    I'm working with a tool called Cognito Forms that allow some fairly complex form functionality. One great feature is the ability to pass values to a form embedded on a Wild Apricot page.

    We are currently working on a feature where a member navigates to a member-only page for expense reimbursement. The page loads an embedded form and pre-fills most of the information.

    Right now, I am using the API to use the contacts/me call to load name and email, but I need the contact/{contact-ID} to get the address and phone.

    After getting the script completed and pre-populating the form…

  9. Connecting to PowerApps with Swagger

    I've downloaded the Swagger file for administrative access and imported into PowerApps in an attempt to create a custom connector. It asks for several fields (see screen shot in attached file).

    I'm not clear on two of the fields to fill in.

    For Authorization URL, it is showing a default of:

    https://YOUR_ORGANIZATION.wildapricot.com/sys/login/OAuthLogin

    I'm not sure what I should replace YOUR_ORGANIZATION with.

    It is also requesting a Refresh URL and I don't know what to put in there.

    Any help would be appreciated. A documented PowerApps connector would be of general use to the WA community and I'd be happy to…

  10. Access registrants who are on the waitlist via API

    We need to be able to export the list of registrants who are on the waitlist. If a course (event) is full, we want to be able to pre-register waitlisted people the next time that we offer the course.
    Currently we have to copy-and-paste from the full event to the next event, a tedious and error-prone activity.

  11. OAUTH - Not getting back authorization token

    Perhaps someone in this forum can help answer this question. There aren't any OAuth exampels for PHP.

    My code is failing on the last ajax call to the OAuth API. I am getting a NULL response from Wild Apricot.

    Perhap someone can let me know what is wrong withthis code:

        $credentials = &#39;[client_id]:[secret]&#39;;
    
    

    //extract data from the post
    //set POST variables
    $url = &#39;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="http://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token&#39;">http://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token&#39;</a>;
    $fields = array(
    &#39;grant_type&#39; =&gt; &quot;authorization_code&quot;,
    &#39;code&#39; =&gt; CCGetParam(&quot;code&quot;,0),
    &#39;client_id&#39; =&gt; &#39;[client_id]&#39;,

    &#39;scope&#39; =&gt; &#39;contacts_me&#39;

  12. Need to redirect OLD WA page address to NEW WA page address

    I used to make an index.html file with a meta redirect tag but this doesn't happen with WA according to Tech Support.

    We originally had a WA site that was modified and the new site has the same pages with different URLs. Our fear is that, for instance, someone may have bookmarked the OLD site's page, and when clicked on brings them to the wrong page.

    Help?

  13. 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…

  14. Javascript not executing

    I'm trying to use javascript to hide/empty a span.class on my registration page. When I first type the code in the span empties just as I would assume it would. However once I save the page the javascript no longer executes.

    <script>
    $('span.levelRecurring:contains("No recurring payments")').empty();
    </script>

    Any ideas?

  15. "The remote server returned an error: (403) forbidden."

    I am using the sample visual studio c# program you have provided (see attachment). The program is failing in trying to access https://api.wildapricot.org/v2. Version2 is failing with a 403 forbidden error message. Any suggestions how I could solve this issue?

  16. Postman collection

    I previously posted about whether anyone had written a Swagger file for WA API that could be used to connct Microsoft PowerApps to WA. New release of PowerApps supports using a Postman collection instead of a Swagger file. Has anyone built a Postman collection for WA API?

  17. API calls to update contacts suddenly failing

    We have a Google Apps script that is used to update a custom contact field. This code has been working and unchanged for the past year, and has suddenly lost the ability to update contacts. Other API calls to get contacts, update event registrations, etc. are still working fine, but can't update any contact fields through the API. Attempts to do so result in an HTTP 500 error. We are still able to update contacts through the web interface.

    Relevant information pasted after the break.

    [17-09-16 07:31:21:841 CDT] Exception: Request failed for https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/accounts/84576/Contacts/40772038 returned code 500. Truncated server response:…

  18. API Upload Pictures

    Hey WA Developers, I'm trying to work through some of the API documentation and I'm hung up on the "Uploading Pictures" documentation.

  19. Contacts/me Returns null

    Hi!
    Using some of the sample code from the GitHub repo I've created a few custom PHP pages for events on a third party site. I'm trying to make the registration functionality work.
    The problem that I'm running into is the Contacts/me API call returns null even with a user logged in. I'm using the format:
    {baseAPIaddress}/{version}/Accounts/{accountID}/Contacts/me

    I am able to run Contact/{ContactID} and get the relevant data back. Do anyone know what might cause this?

    Thanks, Jason.
