Developers

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

  1. Get member first name, last name, email address from id

    I have tried unsuccessfully to get a user first name, last name, email address from the ID.
    Here is what I tried to get the last name:
    https://api.wildapricot.org/v2.1/accounts/12345/contacts?async=false&$filter=$async=false&?$select='Last%20Name'%$filter='Member ID' eq 11111111

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks,
    Jay

  2. API Documentation

    Can someone point me to documentation describing how to get started developing on top of Wild Apricot, including what language to use to interact with the API? I'm a developer but haven't developed on top of a content management system before. I need to be able to display information from the Member table for a specific event.

  3. getting an oath token using curl

    I am attempting to write a tiny app to download my club's calendar from wild apricot. I plan to write this in python 3, triggered by cron. The first step is to get an oauth token. As a test I tried the following curl command but I receive a 401/unauthorized error. Please note that XXXXX is not my real application ID :-)

    I tried variations, and also some similar code in python with the same result.

    Any hints?

    curl -v -H 'Authorization: Basic BASE64_ENCODED("XXXXX")' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'Transfer-Encoding: chunked' -d '{"grant_type":"client_credentials", "scope":"auto"}' https://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token

    Here is an example

    1 Build your Authorization header.
    – Assume you API key is b8gxv-njhci-XXXXXXXXXXXX-50
    – encode the line “APIKEY:b8gxv-njhci-XXXXXXXXXXXX-50”, you will get
    “QVBJS0VZOmI4Z3h2LW5qaGNpLVhYWFhYWFhYWFhYWC01MA==”

    2 use this value to make a call
    curl -X POST \
    https://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token \
    -H ‘Authorization: Basic QVBJS0VZOmI4Z3h2LW5qaGNpLVhYWFhYWFhYWFhYWC01MA==’ \
    -H ‘Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded’ \
    -d ‘scope=auto&grant_type=client_credentials’

    ==
    I recommend to use POSTMAN before writing any code.

  4. GET /accounts/{accountId}/events

    The swagger docs do not really show how to add the parameters to the HTTP Get request (e.g., $filter). For example, how do I format the request to get all events that have the substring "XYZ" in a Tags field?
    Also what is the syntax of the "TextIndex, Supported operations: substringof." parameter? You have all these good parameters in the Swagger site, but no real examples of how to use the syntax. Are we supposed to guess? Help me out here please. Thanks.

  5. API and custom fields - how to reference them in $select or $filter

    Hi. According to some of the documentation it implies that I can use a custom fields' name to reference it. I can directly reference common fields as a $select parameter, but can only reference other fields using their custom-xxx tag, like this:

    '$select' => 'First name, Last name, Email, custom-8097667,
    custom-8097668, custom-8161502, custom-8097675, custom-8017535'

    The custom field tag does not seem to appear anywhere in Membership fields area of the WA database though so the only way I can find it out is by trawling through json data manually.

    Is there a better way to reference those fields, or to…

  6. 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…

  7. Swaggerhub returns 403 Forbidden on all requests to API

    Real simple: Using Swaggerhub to play with the API. I give it a valid API key, it is able to login/authenticate successfully, but the only function returning code 200 OK is default (/) ... when I try the /accounts function or any other function I get 403. Tried 2 different API keys..... with both read-only and admin level access but No matter what I do I get a 403 trying to test the API using the swaggerhub UI

    That typically occures if you don’t check “Auto” checkbox in the scopes list (swaggerhub does not allow to check it by default).

    So when oAuth service gets your response it creates oAuth token with almost no permissions. Technically it is totally valid situation, but such token is almost useless.

    So the solution is to check “Auto” checkbox in the list of scopes.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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?

  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 = '[client_id]:[secret]';

    //extract data from the post
    //set POST variables
    $url = 'http://oauth.wildapricot.org/auth/token';
    $fields = array(
    'grant_type' => "authorization_code",
    'code' => CCGetParam("code",0),
    'client_id' => '[client_id]',
    'redirect_uri' => "https://[domain.com]/login2.php",
    'scope' => 'contacts_me'
    );

    //url-ify the data for the POST
    foreach($fields as $key=>$value) { $fields_string .= $key.'='.$value.'&';…

  12. 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…

  13. "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?

  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. I have successfully integrated the WA API into Integromat

    Integromat.com is like Zapier or IFTT but a bit more powerful AND easy to use. I'm added an authorization Connector and two modules for retrieving and filtering Contacts. Using their Slack integration I can now ask for Integromat to calculate a Membership Report and report back to Slack. Next up is a "new member" notification.

  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.

  18. Swagger

    Has anyone built an OpenAPI (Swagger) file for connecting to WA APIs? I'm trying to make a sign-in kiosk with Microsoft PowerApps and it connects through a JSON OpenAPI definition.

  19. 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.

    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!

  20. 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.
