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

  1. What is the best option managed or unmanaged hosting

    I have an ecommerce website which is created on Magento framework and I am looking to launch it in the USA region. For this reason I have been looking towards the right hosting for Magento.
    A friend of mine recommended me AWS server for the Magento hosting. But, I am confused whether, I go for the conventional unmanaged AWS server or the managed AWS server which is powered by Cloudways.
    So, if there is anyone in the community who can help me take a decision. Below are the urls of both the hostings that I am referring to.
    https://aws.amazon.com/websites/
    https://www.cloudways.com/en/magento-hosting.php

  2. How to get payment instruction via API

    As an admin user, we can set the payment instruction in the payment setting page in Wild Apricot dashboard. However, it seems there is no way to get the payment instruction from API.

    I found that the payment instruction appear in response of GET /events/{{eventid}} but for GET /membershipLevels/{{membershipLevelid}}, this field seems missing.

  3. file attachment API

    Now that WA can save file attachments, can we get an API, similar to /photos that can retrieve the attachment by Id?

  4. [Bounty] How to register guests using the Member Api (v1)?

    It looks like registering guests is available through the Admin API v2. However I need to register guests using the Member API which I believe comes only in v1.

    I am using a javascript application on WA page: https://gethelp.wildapricot.com/en/articles/1705-working-with-api-from-javascript

    Note that for some reason in the example above the v2 (admin?) API is used to query from javascript. However when I try this as a member I get a 403 error. It does work with the member API though.

    Am I missing something? I you think you can help please get in touch. There is a potential bounty available.

  5. How do we get fullSize images from the Picture API?

    I'm having trouble fetching full size images from the Pictures API. If I use the fullSize=true parameter I still get a thumbnail image back.

    API returns the best quality it can find. If you upload images through API or a mobile app, then a high quality image is stored as well as a smaller one. But if you upload an image through the web interface, then system does not keep a larger image.

  6. Events API StartDate filtering only returning first event, not all events?

    Hi, I have two events on a single date, yet calling the Events API and filtering on that date only returns one of the events?

    The code snippet:

        $("#listSessionButton").click(function(){   
             api.apiRequest({
                apiUrl: api.apiUrls.events({
                    $filter: "StartDate eq 2020-03-01",
                    idsOnly: 1
                    }),
                method: "GET",
                success: function (data, textStatus, jqXhr) {
                    console.table(data)
                    alert(data.EventsIdentifiers);
    

    The results:

    EventsIdentifiers 3743709
    Object
    EventsIdentifiers: Array(1)
    0: 3743709
    length: 1

    The events in the GUI attached.

    Thanks very much
    Kevin

  7. account level api access control

    Is there a method of authentication that only allows selected account/member to use the api?

    currently, reading the documentation, using the api key is not differentiable between accounts. Even with the username/password method, all accounts (who has access to the client id/secret) can access the api.
    The only hack I can think of, which only works if there is a small number of accounts that need api access, is to set up a different api key/or client key-secret per account -- this is arguably a hack.

    There is no way to control access to API on this level. If you do not want some people to access API, then do not share client secret with them (this is why it is called secret).
    Anyway, when an admin or a member works with API, he cannot exceed his access level. It means that API will return only data available to this user through the web interface.

  8. Is there any way to hook into the page's onpageshow handler?

    I'm trying to prototype a button that would enable me to switch between one of two languages on the website by using CSS, cookies and Javascript. I think I have some of it working except I need to be able to set the controls to the desired language when I visit a new page. I think I need to hook into the page's "onpageshow" event handler to make my calls there.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to do this? If not, it'd be great if WA supplied hooks so we could make calls to the various page…

  9. Implementing my own payment gateway: is that possible?

    I'm planning to implement my own payment gateway integration (to Omise, a kind of Stripe for South East Asia).

    The plan is to make a "micro-service" that displays the payment page and then push payments to WA Payments Admin API.

    Any red flags? Thanks

  10. Allowing redirects from Google Webapp Script

    I have custom HTML in WA calling a Google Web App via an GET request. It works. The Google App is doing a lot of WA API calls I don't want to expose in WA Client Code. This is my architecture to work around WA not being server side extensible.

    But the Google App redirects to a temp page in the domain script.googleusercontent.com when it is done executing. This is unavoidable in the Google WebApp architecture. I am attempting to make that results page a redirect back to WA. However; this fails only due to the default cross site security.

  11. Integrate members into searchable directory on wordpress

    I have an active member list of 750 members that I would like to export to a Wordpress. The WA site will remain. The Wordpress site would focus on matching members to customers, and I would need a search feature that could search by zip. Is there aa wild apricot partner that has done this? I’m looking to hire.

  12. API Send Email - Cannot specify Reply to Address

    I have been able to create and send emails via the API using a POST to /rpc/{accountId}/email/SendEmail. However, I have not found a way to change the default reply to address (the default is support@wildapricot.com).
    Is there a way to specify a Reply To address similar to the option available when drafting an email on the website?
    Thanks, Paul

  13. Parsing dates on Linux and Mac/BSD with jq

    I need to be able to create scripts that run on both Linux (WSL) and on Mac/BSD. I'm having trouble parsing dates that are returned by the Wild Apricot API.

    Using this file:
    cat this.json
    {"StartDate":"2019-06-14T13:00:00-04:00"}

    This works on Linux:
    jq '.StartDate | strptime("%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%Z") | strftime("%B %d, %Y")' this.json
    "June 14, 2019"
    On Mac/BSD, I get this error:
    jq: error (at <stdin>:1): date "2019-06-14T13:00:00-04:00" does not match format "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%Z"

    I'm wondering if anyone has found a good solution.
    Thank in advance.

  14. Receipt email should be sent automatically once payment is created via API

    If there is an option to create a new payment via the API then it would make sense that an automatic receipt email should be sent out as well or at least the option whether to trigger this or not.

    We have created our custom payment integration using the APIs because our local payment gateway provider is not supported. After the payment is completed the API registers the payment in WA towards the specified invoices.

    We were surprised that the member does not get a receipt email and that it has to be manually done which partly defeats the purpose…

  15. Fetch UserID to drive custom content

    I want to surface information from an external source that's specific to the current user's WA UserID (aka MemberID). Is it possible to determine programatically who's logged in (without GETting via API?). The javascript for this app will reside on WA and surface an external resource (probably a Google Sheet).

  16. Add invoice id or event registration id into event email template

    We cannot integrate with any of the available online payment providers as none of them are supported in our country.

    What I thought to do is use provide the users a link to a third-party code that would use WildApricot APIs to retrieve and update invoice information and that would integrate with our payment providers.

    The link would need to include some information about what the user is trying to pay and the most natural thing would be to include the invoice id or event registration id in the link query parameters so that the third-party code can use the…
