  2. 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…

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Demo Joomla Authentication Module

    Hi,
    I've got a Joomla authentication module working with WildApricot which I'm making available for anyone to use.

    I'm not a PHP coder or joomla expert, so take this with a grain of salt and understand it will need customisation for your site. I've loaded the source on github. I'd recommend it only experienced Joomla/PHP users and you will need to alter it.

    Hopefully someone with more experience can take this code and make it more generic so others may benefit.

    https://github.com/psike73/joomla_waauth

    Allows authentication against WildApricot user/password.
    Add or remove to defined Joomla groups (ie. member and non-members group)
    Add…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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)…

  12. 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
    David

  13. Authenticating a Member or Contact (with iOS app)

    Hi - I am writing a custom iOS app using the WA API and a requirement is that members sign into the mobile app with the same credentials that they use to access the WA site via a browser (i.e. email, password)

    The "contacts" API returns the user's email but not the password (which would clearly be a security issue). So the iOS app cannot verify the members credentials itself.

    Is there an API that the iOS app can call to verify the members password? If not, do you have any other suggestions on how this type of member sign…

  14. API V2 authorization "invalid_client" error

    Hi, I'm trying to do v2 authorization (from Java), and getting an invalid client error.

    My setup reads (edited for brevity):

    HttpPost post = new HttpPost(AUTH_URL+"/auth/token");

    post.addHeader("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded");

    post.addHeader("Authentication","Basic "+Base64.encodeBase64String("APIKEY:"+API_KEY));

    List <NameValuePair> nvps = new ArrayList <NameValuePair>();

    nvps.add(new BasicNameValuePair("granttype", "clientcredentials"));

    nvps.add(new BasicNameValuePair("scope", "account"));

    post.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nvps));This seems a perfect mirror of the php and c# samples, but in return, I'm getting the remarkably useful:{"error":"invalidclient","errordescription":null,"error_uri":null} Any ideas?Thanks,GeePawHill

  15. 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.…

  16. 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

  17. 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
