  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. API with non-administrative permissions

    Original title: 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  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. 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?

  10. Event Registration is not enabled after creating Event via API

    Hi,

    I have creates a Google script to upload event from a Google spreadsheet.

    I create the event with "RegistrationEnabled": false
    Create the RegistrationTypes for the event.
    Then I enable registrations for any membership level....
    {
    "Id": EventId,
    "RegistrationEnabled": true,
    "Details": {
    "AccessControl": {
    "AccessLevel": "Restricted",
    "AvailableForAnyLevel": true,
    }
    }

    When I go to the admin pages of the website the event is not enabled, access is shown as for Admin users only, however the fields in the form are correct.
    I have to press "Save" on the form and then the event registrations are enabled.
    I have tried all…

  11. Built-in export/reports data via api

    Can we please access the data from the built-in Wild Apricot "export" buttons via the API?

    Example: We currently go to Finances > Payments & Refunds > [Export button] > [tick all boxes] > [export as csv], then open the downloaded file and copy/paste into a Google Sheet so we can organise it.

    Surely when the Web Interface generates this export it is simply an internal API call... I want to skip the login/generate/download/copy/paste steps and instead pull the same report data straight in to the Google Sheet via the API. Is this possible?

  12. 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…

  13. Single Sign On server error

    Trying to implement SSO, but just getting 'an error has ocurred'

    URL is https://melbournerebels.wildapricot.org/sys/login/OAuthLogin?client_id=4wq28ex9ox&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%3A3000&scope=contacts_me

    The redirect_uri has been added to the whitelist, and the error telling me to contact myself isn't helping much :)

  14. 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

  15. 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…

  16. 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,

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
