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

  1. 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…

  2. Profile last updated field differs in filter from value read in API ?

    Hi,
    we have a job that queries via the API searching with a filter on "Profile last updated". The query can return no results, it doesn't find any contacts changed since the last query run. However if we just iterate through the contacts and read the Profile last updated field it can be more recent shown in the API results than displayed in the WA web interface. It appears when reading via the API the "last login date" is used as the Profile last updated date if the last login is newer than the last profile update.

    Summary:
    Profile last…

  3. Setting a Password when creating a new contact/member

    Hi,

    I need to create a contact through the API through a 3rd party server. I have no problem creating a contact. However, when I set a password and try to login after I have created the contact, I get an error saying that I have the wrong login information.

    Secondly, when someone signs up they get an email with a password sent to them. Is this possible as well through the API? When I create a contact through the API I want to be able to send them the password in their email so they can login.

    1. Creating contact

    • Newly generated password should be passed in $postFields instead of “12345678”
    • Method createWAContact should be modified to use a password

    Please see improved version of your code here: https://gist.github.com/DmitriySmirnov/8d65a1417d9ffdfc9efe762fa492bbcc

    2. Sending password
    Currently you can’t send such email using API, however there is a lot of PHP libraries for sending emails.

  4. I need to access the "group participation" data for the current user. Can anybody show me how to access the data?

    Group participation data can be foubd in the fiels with name ‘Group participation’. For example:

    var contact = getContactById( 123 )
    for( i=0; i<contact.FieldValues.length;i++) {
    var record = contact.FieldValues[i];
    if( record.FieldName == ‘Group participation’)
    var groups = record.Value;
    }

  5. PUT method to update contact is failing

    I am trying to update the contact details.

    this.data =JSON.parse(data);
    var contactId = this.data.Id;
    let userurl = 'https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/'; + accountid + '/Contacts/' +contactId;

    console.log("efore put call", userDetails);
    console.log("efore put call stringified", JSON.stringify(userDetails));

    let bodyString = JSON.stringify(userDetails);

    this.http.put(userurl, bodyString, {headers:headers})
    .map(res => <User>(res.json()))
    .subscribe(userAuth => {
    // we've got back the raw data, now generate the core schedule data
    // and save the data for later reference
    this.userData = userAuth;
    console.log('get user details', userAuth);
    resolve(this.userData);
    },
    err => {
    console.log("error", err);
    });
    });

    that is my put code.. as your can see I am sending the body text as…

  6. 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?

  7. Change the batch interface to support the POST method

    I have been trying to call the batch API interface from Google Apps Script. Apps Script correctly realizes that BATCH is not a valid HTTP method and prevents me from submitting the request. There must also be many other HTTP client libraries that prevent this.

    The solution is simple - just extend the batch API to also allow a request submitted with the POST method.

  8. Pre-flight not handled for API V2

    I am trying to get data for my app using wild apricot.Im using hybrid app. Currently when I am trying to access
    events.

    https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/209675/Events

    This is my url.
    Then I have to send authorization as header in the GET request.
    But whenever I send authorization as header in GET request. It comes as a pre-flight and first OPTIONS request is sent.

    But the server is not handling OPTIONS request. How do I get over this scenario.

    Request URL:https://api.wildapricot.org/v2/Accounts/209675/Events
    Request Method:OPTIONS

    That happens because your try to access API from web browser (possibly Ionic builder). The web app makes cross origin requests, which are not supported in API.

    There is no problem to access API from mobile app, our own mobile app for admins works exactly this way. However if you try to access API from ionic builder, then you will face CORS error. Here is a detailed explanation of reasons and possible workaround: blog.ionic.io/handling-cors-issues-in-ionic.

    Please let me know if the tutorial helps or not.

  9. How to access each of the options and whole structure of custom field in event

    Hi,
    I am creating a client for wild apricot. So to facilitate event registration the form has to be created in mobile app. To do the same the custom event fields has to be shown in the mobile client. So when I try to access the event Registration or event eventdetails using API.

    "FieldName": "Testing field",
    "Value": [
    {
    "Id": 8815648,
    "Label": "New Item 1"
    }
    ]

  10. API cannot change email settings?

    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?

  11. Attempting to use mod_auth_openidc to authenticate with SSO, OAuth2 standards?

    I'm attempting to configure our third party website using Apache and mod_auth_openidc to invoke the SSO authentication endpoints on our WildApricot website.

    I've gotten as far as manually assembling a correct authentication request URL:

    https://discoamigos.wildapricot.org/sys/login/OAuthLogin?response_type=authorization_code&scope=contacts_me&client_id=...&state=...&redirect_uri=...&nonce=...&claimed_account_id=...

    That shows me a login dialog as expected... However, when trying to use mod-auth-openidc to generate the authorization URL, it doesn't allow the request_type of "authorization_code". It only lets me set the request type to "code", which seems to break the authentication page fetch on the WA end.

    This would seem to be an issue with Oauth2 'standards'. It would seem request_type="authorization_code" isn't a…

  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…

  17. Bug in example PHP application

    Hi,
    if you're using the provided example PHP application there's a small bug that can impact authentication.

    In function getAuthTokenByAdminCredentials

    CHANGE:

    $data = sprintf("grant_type=%s&username=%s&password=%s&scope=%s", 'password', $login, $password, $this->tokenScope);

    TO:

    $data = sprintf("grant_type=%s&username=%s&password=%s&scope=%s", 'password', urlencode($login), urlencode($password), urlencode($this->tokenScope));

    We had a user unable to login and found that a reserved character in the password meant the string was being incorrectly parsed. urlencode() escapes special characters so they are passed through correctly.

    Regards,
    Russell.

  18. I would like to be able to create a payment without creating an invoice: Just "this contact paid this amount on this date".

    I would like to be able to create a payment without creating an invoice or associating with an event: Just "this contact paid this amount on this date".

    I believe that can be done from the WA web site, but I have batch payments already made via an external (private) system, and I want to upload them into WildApricot.
