  1. Trigger API call on Contact Change?

    I would like to use the V2 API to automatically send updates to a FileMaker Pro database (and maybe others in the future) whenever certain fields in a Contact are changed such as name, address, email, etc.

    The documentation on the API is clear and I can manually launch such a PHP program from the browser, but I need to automate the process so whenever a user or an administrator updates a contact record, the PHP program is invoked behind the scenes.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in Advance,

    -Jason Pryde

    • Auction from within WA

      My club conducts an annual auction which supports both silent and live components. Has anyone created an auction plugin or software that would integrate the Wild Apricot contact database and allow an auction to be administered from within the website?

      • API Event Registrations - Support filters beside list of ID's ?

        Does anyone know if the event registration call supports filters other than the list of ID's mention on the help page.

        Events can be filtered much like contacts but it does not specify for event registrations.

        I want to limit the list of registrations returned for a contact to only those today or later.

          • 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…

            • Cannot access API from within site pages if not Administrator.

              Hi,

              I have written JavaScript/HTML in a WildApricot site page to display events as a compact list in a table.

              If I login to an administrator account it all works fine, if I login to a non administrator account I get error 403 returned from a get Events API call.....

              "Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Current token does not provide access to scope 'events_view'.)"

              Code snippet is:
              <script>

              generateTable();

              function generateTable()
              {
              var EventsList = getDataFromApi("https://xxxxx.wildapricot.org/sys/api/v2/accounts/xxxxxx/Events?$sort=StartDate asc&$filter=Tags in [training,cruising,racing,racing_crew] AND StartDate ge 2017-01-01");

                  • 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…

                    • fieldvalues contact api

                      I have an interesting issue you can help me with. I am using the Contacts API and calling it from a Javascript call using the WA API wrapper for jQuery. I got this code from the WA developer forum and loaded it into the files section to call locally from the WA install (rather than from the original location).

                      • How do I get all common fields and member fields?

                        I'm using the PHP Sample Code, but can't figure out how to get the member fields from the call to the Contacts api. I did a var_dump and there appears to be several arrays. Do I iterate through each array or should I be making a call to the membershiplevel api? Please advise. Thanks in advance.

                        • Sample Excel File for API Connect to WA Make Available for Excel for MAC [14851]

                          It seems that the Sample Excel file for importing data from Wild Apricot was developed in Excel for WIndows. The Import Data macro does not compile because of a Missing:Microsoft XML,v3.0 reference. This XML object is only available in Excel for Windows.

                          Wild Apricot states that it will not be supporting this Excel file at all. That leaves out all MAC users.

                          I have not been able to find any suggestions on line on how to run this Macro or replace the XML object.

                              • Launch Checklist

                                1- First thing you need to secure is access to is your domain’s DNS settings or Zone Files. If you run a query at say DNS STUFF.Com – you can find out where your DNS is hosted: dnsstuff.com

                                Notice that in the Parent section our public Name Servers listed as follows:
                                emily.ns.cloudflare.com. | 173.245.58.155
                                buck.ns.cloudflare.com. | 173.245.59.78

                                So for our website CloudFlare.Com is where we host our DNS.

                                2- Next, go to the Wild Apricot custom domain setup article < Click Here >
                                Once in your DNS Zone Files, you will need to edit the following files:

                                  How can I return a list of just account administrators?

                                  Using the API Browser, I tried both

                                  $filter=IsAccountAdministrator eq true

                                  and

                                  $filter="Administrator role.Id" eq 256

                                  both return this cryptic error:

                                  ErrorDetails: "One or more errors occurred."

                                    Filtering of account admihnistrators is not supported yet. If you are not sure that filtering for some field is supported, then you can look at contact field description. ‘Administrator role’ field has flag “SupportSearch”: false. That’s why filtering fails.

                                    We will implement such filtering in one of future updates.

                                    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?

                                      It seems the only way to exit the email wizard after sending an email successfully is to click on the one link available to the email log. Alternatively, I wanted to get back to what I was doing, communicating with a member and updating his record.

                                      I suggest you look into exit options for the email wizard.

                                      • can I reset (increase) the "registration limit" once the limit is reached and the signup disabled?

                                        reset (increase) the "registration limit" once the limit is reached and the signup disabled?

                                        My event was set at 20. It registration was disabled when the limit was reached. In the registration type window, I have now increased the limit to 30. That is confirmed on the screen. However the system is advising that the registration is still disabled as the original 20 was reached. It is not "resetting" to the new higher value. How can I get it to reset?

                                        • API2 Export Invoices to Excel through VBA

                                          I would like to export our invoices to Excel trough API, as I need country, TAX info, deleted invoices to do a proper administration.

                                          Can someone send me an example how to connect to WA through VBA using API v2?
