  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
    https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Pictures+API+V2+call
    I've got a Google Script constructed to upload an image from Google Drive to my trial WA site and I can't get it to work! 400 response code. Anybody up for taking a look and pointing out what I am doing wrong? Thanks so much!

  4. 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.

    If you need one time export, just make an export to Excel file (https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Exporting+members+and+other+contacts) and then upload this file to google drive.

    If you want to do it on regular basis, you could make some automation using google script. We have a sample code in google script (https://github.com/WildApricot/ApiSamples/tree/master/GoogleScript), which could be a good starting point for your project.

  8. Use of Event Registration IDs

    I am using the API to determine if members have registered or their registration has been cancelled for an Event.

    At the moment I cannot see any way of knowing that a registration has been cancelled from the API.

    So, I will need to check if the registrations have changed or not since the last time it was checked. This means saving the Event Registration IDs in a file.
    What is the valid range of a Registration ID?

  9. 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…

  10. Profile last updated field differs in filter from value read in API ?

    Hi,
    we have a job that queries via the API searching with a filter on "Profile last updated". The query can return no results, it doesn't find any contacts changed since the last query run. However if we just iterate through the contacts and read the Profile last updated field it can be more recent shown in the API results than displayed in the WA web interface. It appears when reading via the API the "last login date" is used as the Profile last updated date if the last login is newer than the last profile update.

    Summary:
    Profile last…

  12. Setting a Password when creating a new contact/member

    Hi,

    I need to create a contact through the API through a 3rd party server. I have no problem creating a contact. However, when I set a password and try to login after I have created the contact, I get an error saying that I have the wrong login information.

    Secondly, when someone signs up they get an email with a password sent to them. Is this possible as well through the API? When I create a contact through the API I want to be able to send them the password in their email so they can login.

    1. Creating contact

    • Newly generated password should be passed in $postFields instead of “12345678”
    • Method createWAContact should be modified to use a password

    Please see improved version of your code here: https://gist.github.com/DmitriySmirnov/8d65a1417d9ffdfc9efe762fa492bbcc

    2. Sending password
    Currently you can’t send such email using API, however there is a lot of PHP libraries for sending emails.

    Group participation data can be foubd in the fiels with name ‘Group participation’. For example:

    var contact = getContactById( 123 )
    for( i=0; i<contact.FieldValues.length;i++) {
    var record = contact.FieldValues[i];
    if( record.FieldName == ‘Group participation’)
    var groups = record.Value;
    }

  14. Work around for sorting members who are using their photo albums.

    1. I created a question (required to Members) "Are you using your albums to display your art?" Yes/No

    2. The membership field was made public

    3. I then created a saved search on the new membership field that allows me to pull out only members who have a "yes"

    4. I created another Membership directory on a separate page. So I have 2 membership directories in use. One that displays all members and another that displays members who are using their photo albums.

    5. I created a link on my home page directing the public to view the membership directory…

  17. Querying Wild Apricot for Contact's passwords?

    Is it possible to query Wild Apricot for a Contact's password? I need to keep an external CMS synced with the users that are in Wild Apricot that have memberships and thus would like it if the passwords can be kept in sync with Wild Apricot.

  18. Built-in export/reports data via api

    Can we please access the data from the built-in Wild Apricot "export" buttons via the API?

    Example: We currently go to Finances > Payments & Refunds > [Export button] > [tick all boxes] > [export as csv], then open the downloaded file and copy/paste into a Google Sheet so we can organise it.

    Surely when the Web Interface generates this export it is simply an internal API call... I want to skip the login/generate/download/copy/paste steps and instead pull the same report data straight in to the Google Sheet via the API. Is this possible?

  19. 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.

  20. Pre-flight not handled for API V2

    I am trying to get data for my app using wild apricot.Im using hybrid app. Currently when I am trying to access
    events.

    https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/209675/Events

    This is my url.
    Then I have to send authorization as header in the GET request.
    But whenever I send authorization as header in GET request. It comes as a pre-flight and first OPTIONS request is sent.

    But the server is not handling OPTIONS request. How do I get over this scenario.

    That happens because your try to access API from web browser (possibly Ionic builder). The web app makes cross origin requests, which are not supported in API.

    There is no problem to access API from mobile app, our own mobile app for admins works exactly this way. However if you try to access API from ionic builder, then you will face CORS error. Here is a detailed explanation of reasons and possible workaround: blog.ionic.io/handling-cors-issues-in-ionic.

    Please let me know if the tutorial helps or not.
