Incorrect Results for Modified Profile Info

We are not able to retrieve recently updated Persons. To retrieve Persons we used the following curl: curl -X GET \ 'https://customer.sspnet.org/api/Person?Email=contains:@&IsMarkedForDelete=ne:true&UpdatedOn=gt:2021-11-25T15:07:03.673&limit=100&offset=0' \ -H 'Authorization: Bearer <token>' \ -H 'cache-control: no-cache' In response we see Persons that do not match filtering, we expect to see just Persons that were updated later than 2021-11-25T15:07:03.673 but we also get values updated at 2021-11-02T19:19:38.647. But the same query with filter CreatedOn value works as expected.

Event list - filter by event type/category

Hi, Trying to filter on event category via the /api/Event endpoint. This doesn't seem possible at the moment? I'm able to do this via /api/CsEvent?MeetingType=AGM however I would much rather use the proper API endpoints. I've tried: /api/Event?MeetingType=AGM /api/Event?Type=AGM /api/Event?EventType=AGM /api/Event?Category=AGM /api/Event?EventCategoryId=AGM /api/Event?EventCategory=AGM All result in "In the query, <...> is not a known property name." It would be super handy if there was a list of these "property name"s that worked. Thank you.

Refresh Tokens

We have an SSO using the out of the box ipart and process that is working with 20.2 and was working with 20.3 until the recent August changes to the refresh token. I understand that it is only good for 1 hour and can be invalidated when the cache is cleared. What would cause the cache to be cleared? Also, can you use the refresh token more than once?

membership trends over time

I believe there are no reports in the system where you can get information on what your membership numbers have done over time. How on earth can you run a membership system if you can't see trends. Am I missing something??

REST API Public User with Access to Info

Hello, I'm concerned about this situation: I just created a Public User in Imis and didn't change any permission to it. I found that using the following script from the browser console, this new Public User (after I logged in with his credentials in Rise) could do many listings like the one below. Could you help me understand why ? I need to let him just read information, but I'd like to know how to block Public Users from reading information. jQuery.ajax("https://mytest-imis123.com/imis/api/Party", { type : "get", contentType: "application/json", headers: {"RequestVerificationToken": document.getElementById("__RequestVerificationToken").value}, success: function(data){console.log(data);} }) Thank you !

How To: Use iMIS REST API to embed a virtual file path in an IQA result

This 'how to' was developed in response to an iMIS customer that is experiencing poor page load times due to overuse of included images from IQA query results. I'm posting it here hopes that it proves useful to others in the community. **The problem:** One of the really nifty things you can do with iMIS is embed images directly into a page from IQA results by injecting markup into the display column property(ies) of an IQA. Unfortunately, if an IQA returns multiple rows, or returns images that are of indeterminant size, this practice can result in very large web pages that perform poorly because they are a) huge and b) cannot take advantage of caching and other performance optimizations within the browser or our hosting environment. This problem can be managed by tightly controlling the sizes of the images included in the IQA results, but that can require a significant effort from staff and you can still wind up with problems in environments where members/users can upload new images without staff intervention. **The solution:** most iMIS iParts get around this issue by obtaining a URL path to an image from the iMIS service API. If you're developing a custom iPart that displays images from the iMIS database, you're probably already aware of how to get a virtual file path from the API, however, if you're using images with one of our more generic web parts like a QueryList, you'll need something more along the lines of what I'm posting here. **Summary:** The basic idea is pretty simple: instead of embedding the actual encoded image in the query display, we just want to embed the data the API will need in order to retrieve a file path, and then we add javascript to obtain the file path once the document is loaded. **Step 1:** Embed our API parameters in the display properties of the query. This is done from the Display tab of the IQA. Add a custom column that injects markup with data you'll need to get an image file path. In the case of an IQA with a contact BO source, we can get the member profile image, just need the party id to get the member's profile image path: Example: '<span class="image" id="my_image_prefix_' + vBoNetContactData.Id + '" ></span>' **Step 2:** Add javascript to the content record page <head> tag that scans the document for elements that match our id attribute prefix, makes the API call, and adds the image file to the document. Javascript can be added in PageBuilder under the 'Advanced' section of the page's 'Properties' tab. Example: function setImageUrls(){ const tagPrefix = 'my_image_prefix_'; // all of the <span> tags in the doc that start with our tag prefix const imageSpans = document.querySelectorAll('span[id^="my_image_prefix_"]'); // set the background image style for each tag to the correct virtual file path to the virtual file path imageSpans.forEach(function(currentValue){ const idAttr = currentValue.getAttribute("id"); const partyId = idAttr.substr(tagPrefix.length); console.log(idAttr + ", " + partyId); fetchProfileVirtualFileData(partyId, idAttr); }); } function fetchProfileVirtualFileData(partyId, idAttr) { let xhr = new XMLHttpRequest(); xhr.open('POST', "https://my.imisdomain.com/api/PartyImage/_execute", true); xhr.setRequestHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json'); xhr.setRequestHeader('RequestVerificationToken', document.getElementById("__RequestVerificationToken").value); xhr.onload = function() { let response = null; if (xhr.status === 200 || xhr.status === 201 || xhr.status === 202) { if (xhr.responseText) { var virtualFile = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText); console.log(JSON.stringify(virtualFile)); console.log(virtualFile.Result["VirtualPath"]); let virtualPath = virtualFile.Result["VirtualPath"]; if (virtualPath.startsWith('~')){ virtualPath = virtualPath.substr(1); } const imageSpan = document.getElementById(idAttr); imageSpan.style.backgroundImage = "url(" + virtualPath + ")"; } } }; xhr.send(JSON.stringify(getProfileVirtualFileRequestBody(partyId))); } function getProfileVirtualFileRequestBody(partyId){ const requestBody = { "$type": "Asi.Soa.Core.DataContracts.GenericExecuteRequest, Asi.Contracts", "OperationName": "GetProfileVirtualFile", "EntityTypeName": "PartyImage", "Parameters": { "$type": "System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection`1[[System.Object, mscorlib]], mscorlib", "$values": [ { "$type": "System.String", "$value": partyId } ] }, "ParameterTypeName": { "$type": "System.Collections.ObjectModel.Collection`1[[System.String, mscorlib]], mscorlib", "$values": [ "System.String" ] }, "UseJson": false }; return requestBody; } window.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", setImageUrls); Theoretically, this can be done much more succinctly via the javascript Fetch API, but I've done this example using XHR because I'm still learning the ins and outs of fetch. If anyone comes across this and wants to post an example using fetch that'd be awesome =)! Hope this helps the community! Cheers!

Query definition

Hi, Is the only way to get the definition of a query through a POST to /QueryDefinition/_execute It looks like the response includes a Parameters section with an array of the propted parameters, but it does not include the data type of the property, or whether the query has a preselected value for a specific field There also doesn't seem to be any way to identify whether the said property should have a value list associated with it. Is there any other end point that provides the above definition information for IQAs? Thanks, Martin There is a Values node with a $values array, but in all the examples I've looks at it's empty, so I'm not sure what it's supposed to return.
