  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?

      • 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");

        The API documentation here

          • 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.

              • Allow Group Leader to Send Emails to a Group

                Site Admin will grant access to a specific WA page for each Group Leader.
                -- On this page will be a form Nicasio creates using WordPress and a
                form plugin.
                -- If more groups are added or changed, Nicasio would need to
                add/update these forms for the Site Admin (or walk the Site Admin
                through how to set these up).

                The form will include the standard email fields (subject, and body, as

                  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.

                    • Drupal, single sign on

                      Is there any instructions on how to have single sign on to work from WA to a Drupal site? To set it up on Wordpress there is a plugin but I can't find anything similar in Drupal. Any help would be great.
                      Thank you

                          • 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.

                              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?

                              • How can I sync WA API and Azure Active Directory?

                                We are looking at using WA with Office 365 to collaborate with our members. Office 365 uses the Azure AD environment which accepts most setups. My question is how we could export WA member data to Azure AD as 'B2B external partners' or, better yet, native AD accounts.

                                • 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:
                                  A) CNAME
                                  Name:…

                                  • Filtering Account Administrators

                                    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.

                                      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.

                                      • Event creation via API cannot set all fields

                                        I am creating Events using the API and cannot see how the following fields can be set (I can set these as an Administrator in the website) .....
                                        Show registrants who want to be listed
                                        to everyone
                                        to members only
                                        Include pending registrations

                                        Also I cannot see how the schedule for email announcements and reminders for an Event can be set via the API?

                                          Hi,

                                          The section “Show registrants who want to be listed” will be added in API soon (second decade of Jan).

                                          Schedule for email announcements and reminders can’t be set via API and it is not in our development plans. Is it required to manage email options via API?
