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

  1. 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.

    Request URL:https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/209675/Events
    Request Method:OPTIONS
    Status Code:405 Method Not Allowed
    Remote Address:96.43.192.222:443

    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.

  2. How to access each of the options and whole structure of custom field in event

    Hi,
    I am creating a client for wild apricot. So to facilitate event registration the form has to be created in mobile app. To do the same the custom event fields has to be shown in the mobile client. So when I try to access the event Registration or event eventdetails using API.

    {
    "FieldName": "Testing field",
    "Value": [
    {
    "Id": 8815648,
    "Label": "New Item 1"
    }
    ]
    }

    Currently I am using https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/209675/EventRegistrations?eventId=2297435

    also tried with
    https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/209675/EventRegistrations/16216925

    I get the Field and label for it. but there is a field tyepe and list of values assocaited with it. how…

  3. API cannot change email settings?

    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?

  4. Attempting to use mod_auth_openidc to authenticate with SSO, OAuth2 standards?

    I'm attempting to configure our third party website using Apache and mod_auth_openidc to invoke the SSO authentication endpoints on our WildApricot website.

    I've gotten as far as manually assembling a correct authentication request URL:

    https://discoamigos.wildapricot.org/sys/login/OAuthLogin?response_type=authorization_code&scope=contacts_me&client_id=...&state=...&redirect_uri=...&nonce=...&claimed_account_id=...

    That shows me a login dialog as expected... However, when trying to use mod-auth-openidc to generate the authorization URL, it doesn't allow the request_type of "authorization_code". It only lets me set the request type to "code", which seems to break the authentication page fetch on the WA end.

    This would seem to be an issue with Oauth2 'standards'. It would seem request_type="authorization_code" isn't a…

  5. Renewing Membership with API

    We would like to offer our members the chance to renew their membership from our WordPress site. How do you recommend we use the API to accomplish this in a way that integrates well with the regular Wild Apricot renewal process?

    Ideally we would update the contact (change the membership level, if needed, and update the renewal due date), produce an invoice for the renewal, and record a payment for that invoice. Have I missed something?

    Since the API still does not allow the creation of new invoices directly (I can generate an invoice for an event, but not for…

  7. Finger print reader Integration

    Dear Support Team,

    Will it be possible to somehow integrate the Integrated Biometrics product below into the Wild Apricot:
    http://www.integratedbiometrics.com/products/curve/

    I want to use it to register contacts (members / clients / attendees) when arriving at an event (or meeting).
    This will speed up registration a lot.

    On the first contact (new client) with the person, the detailed information (name and other attributes) of the person will be captured together with a finger print (will be later used for repeated registration).

    When performing registration the next time, as the contact information will be already available on the system, the contact…

    I would like to be able to retrieve the event organizer information (name and email) via the Event API calls.
    Our event organizers are also our featured speakers. We would like to be able to create a list of event titles, dates and times, and speakers.

  9. Accessing member ID from a 3rd party website

    Hi

    Not sure if this is possible

    I am designing a 3rd party website and I would like to offer our WA members the ability to login using the WA SSO and access a restricted section within the 3rd party. Although I can achieve this I would like WA to tell me who the member who logged in was (e.g. by telling me the memberID)

    Is there a way to do this?

    So far I do the following based http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Single+sign-on+service
    1. I get the SSO working and WA returns state and code

    2. I then send
    $data["grant_type"]="authorization_code";
    $data["authorization_code"]=$_GET['code'];
    $data["client_id"]=$cID;
    $data["redirect_uri"]="…

  10. 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.

  12. Web link with embedded user data

    We are migrating our members to WA and I have a big issue. Our members are granted access to an external database as part of their membership to search legal information online. Members log into our portal and click on a link that has their own AccountID, First Name, Last Name and email address embedded. Is there a way to accomplish this in WA?

    Here is an example of the code we use now on our existing ASP site to generate the individual links:

    using System;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    public partial class membersonly_somedatabase : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
    protected string endurl;
    protected void…

    At the end to January we are launching a feature, which allows JS code to access public API. You will be able to get from API information about current user and then build a link.

    Here is

  13. Bug in example PHP application

    Hi,
    if you're using the provided example PHP application there's a small bug that can impact authentication.

    In function getAuthTokenByAdminCredentials

    CHANGE:

    $data = sprintf("grant_type=%s&username=%s&password=%s&scope=%s", 'password', $login, $password, $this->tokenScope);

    TO:

    $data = sprintf("grant_type=%s&username=%s&password=%s&scope=%s", 'password', urlencode($login), urlencode($password), urlencode($this->tokenScope));

    We had a user unable to login and found that a reserved character in the password meant the string was being incorrectly parsed. urlencode() escapes special characters so they are passed through correctly.

    Regards,
    Russell.

  14. I would like to be able to create a payment without creating an invoice: Just "this contact paid this amount on this date".

    I would like to be able to create a payment without creating an invoice or associating with an event: Just "this contact paid this amount on this date".

    I believe that can be done from the WA web site, but I have batch payments already made via an external (private) system, and I want to upload them into WildApricot.

  17. Cannot get access token after successful SSO

    I am able to obtain authorization_code from OAuthLogin, but cannot get access token from oauth.wildapricot.org with it.

    The failure occurs due to CORS although I believe I am making the request from the same origin (SSOfail_CORS.png).

    If I disable CORS, the failure behaves differently. A pop-up is shown asking for username+password (SSOfail_noCORS.png). This pop-up keeps repeating after entering valid credentials, and must eventually be canceled to continue.

    Here is the code that makes access token request:

    $.post(
    "https://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token",
    {
    authorization_code: code,
    client_id: "xxxxxxx",
    client_secret: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
    redirect_uri: "https://rbc.wildapricot.org/Schedule",
    scope: "auto"
    },
    function(data, status){
    alert("Data " + JSON.stringify(data)…

    The reason is that you pass client_id and client_secret as a form parameters, but they should be passed in Authorization header.

    API is expected to be used from server code or from standalone application. Currently JS applications are not supported. Nature of JS applications does not allow to keep secret, so any user can extract auth token from JS application. I would recommend to implement all interactions with public API using some server-side app. It can be PHP / python or even google script app.

  18. 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

  19. oAuth work with Discourse SSO

    I'm trying to understand if Wild Apricot's SSO implementation will work out of the box with Discourse's oAuth SSO implementation, or if I need to develop a plugin for Discourse to authenticate with WA.

    Discourse, a discussion platform, provides a built-in oAuth SSO client. There are screenshots of the configuration here - https://meta.discourse.org/t/official-single-sign-on-for-discourse/13045

    On Discourse, for the SSO URL, I have put in what I believe is the correct URL for the authorized application that I have made in our WA account:

    https://abea.bike/sys/login/OAuthLogin?client_id=<WA CLIENT ID>&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdiscourse.cyclingsavvy.bike%2F&scope=contacts_me&response_type=authorization_code&claimed_account_id=<WA ACCOUNT ID>

    Where <WA CLIENT ID> is configured on the Wild Apricot admin site…

  20. Data returned in contacts/me

    Hi,
    using example PHP code and worked out that if we authenticate to the API as a user then we can retrieve the user's ID with the contacts/me call, but it returns limited data about the user. It does not return membership field values. Is there a way, when logged in as a user, to retrieve the users record including datafields?

    Just for context, I'm writing a joomla auth plugin. I want to first authenticate the user (hence using the user credentials) and once authenticated I would like to get some of the data to sync into the Joomla account…
