Use API to find User to Policy relationship

Post by Yajasi » Sun Apr 19, 2015 4:20 pm

Running 8.0.5 CE on Ubuntu 14.04.

I'm trying to use the API to find which users have a Meal Policy. There doesn't seem to be a report which identifies this. Which API class do I use to do that?

I tried the following, but got an error.

Code: Select all

    
    $ttAPI_group = new TimeTrexClientAPI( 'PolicyGroup' );
    $group_factory = $ttAPI_group->getMainClassObject();
    $meals = $group_factory->getMealPolicy();
    var_dump($meals);
PHP Notice: SOAP Fault: (Code: SOAP-ENV:Server, String: Function 'getMealPolicy' doesn't exist) - Request: Response: in /var/www/html/run/classes/modules/api/client/TimeTrexClientAPI.class.php on line 197

You need to get the PolicyGroup data, then pull the user and meal policy data from that, something along these lines:

Code: Select all

$ttAPI_group = new TimeTrexClientAPI( 'PolicyGroup' );
$retval = $ttAPI_group->getPolicyGroup();
$retval will now contain the result of all your policy groups in an array, which will have 'user' and 'meal_policy' array elements.

$retval will now contain the result of all your policy groups in an array, which will have 'user' and 'meal_policy' array elements.
Here is an excerpt of the return value. It does not have a 'user' or 'meal_policy' array element.

Code: Select all

array {
...
[10]=>
    array(6) {
      ["id"]=>
      int(44)
      ["name"]=>
      string(20) "Staff - Mechanic"
      ["description"]=>
      bool(false)
      ["total_users"]=>
      int(11)
      ["updated_by"]=>
      string(22) "TimeTrex Administrator"
      ["updated_date"]=>
      string(14) "02-Apr-15 4:06"
    }
    [11]=>
    array(6) {
      ["id"]=>
      int(3)
      ["name"]=>
      string(17) "Staff - Pilot"
      ["description"]=>
      bool(false)
      ["total_users"]=>
      int(11)
      ["updated_by"]=>
      string(22) "TimeTrex Administrator"
      ["updated_date"]=>
      string(14) "02-Apr-15 4:06"
    }
}
Is there anything else I can try?

It seems as though you may not be logging into the API as a full administrator that has permissions to view the data you are looking for.

Thank you! We adjusted our permissions for the API user and were able to retrieve the desired information.
