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

  1. What will you do with the new API?

    I'm excited for the API that will be coming out this month (according to this forum: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308920-archive/suggestions/8831320-api-to-read-contact-member-records-2469 )

    I see that there are a lot of people interested in the API and I was curious what others will be using it for? I will be using it to integrate Google Maps but perhaps there are some other cool things I can set up that I haven't thought of.

  2. Add extended Event API - add events, edit details, etc.

    Hi - there is an API for listing events. However there appears to be no API to create a new event and yet this seems like it would be a relatively frequent request for a mobile client.

    Am I missing it in the doc or is there no such event. If not - any plans to add such an API in the future? In the interim any suggestions for how a mobile app (native) could add an event?

    Thanks

    David

  3. Google Script for Google Apps

    Thank you to WildApricot for posting the sample code for an api connection to update a google spreadsheet. https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Sample+API+V2+applications

    I'm now using google scripts to produce (update) 13 regional spreadsheets of members each that has been shared with a regional coordinator so that I don't have to do this manually.

    Would love to hear how other organizations are using Google apps and integrating the wa api.

    Also would love to collaborate on building some additional Google Code scripts. Example, allowing each regional coordinator to email (mail merge) via gmail the members in their regional spreadsheet.

    I am also interested in…

  4. API call to create (POST) invoices

    I would like to be able to create (POST) invoices via API.

    This feature would help us when when we need to generate invoices for a many members. That payments can already be created via API is useful. The feature for Invoices that I am requesting would seem to complement the existing feature for Payments.

  5. Creating Bundles with API

    All was going very well with the API V2 until I wanted to set up Bundles with the membership. I can create contacts and assign a membership level. But when I try to assign a create a Bundle Administrator or Bundle Member, nothing seems to take. The API says only a Bundle ID and NOT an email address like the Import can use. To automate this process, I don't/can't use the Import process.

    Has anyone been successful in using the API to create a Bundle? (Administrator and/or Member)

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Our trial is almost over and this…

    Now it is possible.

    Step by step:
    1. Create bundle admin
    2. As a result of POST operation you will get a json of new contact.
    So find a record in FieldValues with “FieldName”: “Bundle ID” and take “Value” from that record.
    3. Create a bundle member
    4. Check we have a bundle and it contains members we expect

    Here is a complete description with requests you should send: https://gist.github.com/DmitriySmirnov/8b29429d75e9b66eef9c88d4a647a3e8

  6. API PUT produces unexpected result

    As part of our first operational use of the API, I need to update two fields dynamically. For trials, I am using php cUrl, modeled on your sample application. I have no problems with GET, but PUT leaves me baffled.

    Each time I run the script, the target fields are not changed - but the membership of the target contact goes from "active" to "membership not allocated".

    Clearly my code is doing this: but how/why? Can anyone give me a clue as to what is happening?

    Also, my debugging script shows a result JSON containing all the target contact's data.…

  7. API V2 "invalid_scope" error

    Multiple attempts at setting the "scope" param (contactsview, eventsview, contacts, etc) all return the same error:
    {"error":"invalidscope","errordescription":"Scope 'eventsview\n' is not available for current client.","erroruri":null}

    My client was created with "read only" access. Shouldn't this work?

  8. API: Get list of contacts by saved search

    Wanting to get some feedback if I am doing this correctly or there is a better way!

    Goal: I have 13 SavedSearches and I want to create 13 separate Google SS (using Google Script) with the details of members (some custom fields I have created as well) returned by each SavedSearch.

    Step 1: I use the api SavedSearch request to return the contactIds.

    Step 2: Iterate through the returned list and make an api call to contacts using the contactId.

    Here is the problem I am encountering. The limit on individual contact calls is 60 / minute. All my searches…

  9. API V2 help creating or updating fields

    I am evaluating Wild Apricot for a small non-profit. We are all volunteers who will be administering it, so I am investigating using the API to automate our workflow due to the fact that WA does not create a Contact for Guest registrations.

    My question is related to the Create Contact or Update Contact operations. I can create a contact with the FirstName, LastName and Email fields and I can update those fields. However, I have been unsuccessful adding or creating additional fields, even the Phone built in field.

    Can anyone help by sending me an example of the syntax…

  10. API Help

    I’ve been following your API v2 guides and snagged the PHP sample listed here:

    https://github.com/WildApricot/ApiSamples/blob/master/PHP/sampleApplication.php

    I was able to properly implement the getAccountDetails function and I created a getContactIdFromEmail function that tweaked the getContactsList function to filter on an email address.

    Now I’m trying to update the FirstName of the Contact that I received. Here’s the code:

    function updatePasswordByContactId($contactId, $email)

    {

    global $waApiClient;

    global $accountUrl;

    $url = $accountUrl . "/Contacts/Contact/{$contactId}";

    $data = array("FirstName" => "Chaz2");

    $result = $waApiClient->makeRequest($url, "PUT", $data);

    return true;

    }

    I analyzed the CURL parameters to see that it is calling the URL:

    https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/73659/Contacts/Contact/25710546 ALIDCONTACTID

  11. API V2 authorization error using APIKEY

    As far as I can tell, APIKEY authorization according to:
    http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/API+V2+authentication
    is broken.

    This example:

    POST /auth/token HTTP/1.1

    Host: oauth.wildapricot.org
    
    Authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

    granttype=clientcredentials&scope=contacts finances events

    simply doesn't work, always returning a "scope xxxx is not available for current client" for every scope I've tried (from the table on the same page).

    Is this just completely broken, or something is missing. I note that there is no place in the API for the "application name". I also note that I don't get an "authorization error", as I would get if I use an incorrect base64-encoded API…

  12. API V2 authentication and sample routines in Python

    Hi,

    I'm trying to integrate my Wild Apricot database into a standing Python program. If somebody has already written the V2 API authentication and some routines in Python, can they share so I can leverage?

    Thanks in advance.

  13. Getting Support for the WA V2 API?

    Hi - looking through recent posts in the forum regarding usage of the WA API V2 I get the impression that the API is basically unsupported by WA. e.g. two API issues I posted some days ago remain unanswered and a recent API V2 question from another user (GeePawHill) also remains without any replies.

    So a basic question - do WA staff support the API through this forum? If not can anyone at WA advise what other avenues are available in order to get support for the API? e.g. should we be submitting API issues via the support channel? (email)…

  14. Pass authorization credentials via url

    We use a separate web server but manage user registration through wildapricot. If the user logs into the primary website, can I pass these credentials to wildapricot in the URL? I don't want them to have to log on a second time when they connect.

    Thanks - Mike

  15. Contacts API v2 $select doesn't provide MembershipLevel

    I found that when using $select on the contacts API call in V2, the MembershipLevel field is not available. It is available however if all fields are returned by not using $select

    Is this by design, or an oversight?

    I am using the sample PHP code.

  16. API - HTTP POST Error 500, an internal error has occured

    Hi - I've spent hours trying to figure why the POST below (in Swift) fails. Status code is HTTP 500 which according to the doc means "Wild Apricot's server has encountered an error and cannot fulfill the request." API Key and authentication are all good since GET requests to the same API work fine.

    The event is very simple defined to have only fields first and last name and email. The event is public. I've triple checked all the Id's - event, contact, reg type id etc.

    Any ideas much appreciated..

    Thanks

  17. API changes in 5.4 (action may be required before July 6th)

    In Version 5.4, which was just released on June 15th, Wild Apricot has made changes to the authentication process https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/API+V2+authentication for its API. We have moved from account-based authentication to the more secure application-based authorization. Instead of generating a single API key that provides complete access to your entire Wild Apricot account, you authorize individual applications, each of which are assigned separate credentials. If you've previously generated an API key for your account – prior to the 5.4 release – it will automatically be converted to an authorized application called Legacy API key.
    If you are currently using an API…
