Dear Amos,
I imported ExtraRest plugin to PM. I want to get user information. So, I created a process and wrote a trigger like this:
Code: Select all
$userId = '00000000000000000000000000000001';
$url = "/api/1.0/workflow/extrarest/user?usr_uid=$userId";
$oRet = pmRestRequest("GET", $url, null, $oToken->access_token);
print "\n\n".json_encode($oRet->response, JSON_PRETTY_PRINT | JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES | JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE)."\n\n";

//display user profile photo, if set:
if ($oRet->status == 200 and isset($oRet->response['usr_photo_url'])) {
   print '<img src="'.$oRet->response['usr_photo_url'].'">';
}
When I run the process, I see the following error:
Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
By the way I enabled debug mode, and I did not see errors.
I would be very thankful, if you could help me to find my fault
Kind Regards

Thanks for your kind reply,
I want to Update a user's account information (available in version 1.13 and later.)
In my sample process, I wrote the following trigger:
Code: Select all
$pmServer = "http://localhost:300";                                                                  
function pmRestRequest($method, $endpoint, $aVars = null, $accessToken = null) {
   global $pmServer;

   if (empty($accessToken) and isset($_COOKIE['access_token']))
      $accessToken = $_COOKIE['access_token'];

   if (empty($accessToken)) { //if the access token has expired
      //To check if the PM login session has expired: !isset($_COOKIE['PHPSESSID'])
      header("Location: loginForm.php"); //change to match your login method
      die();
   }

   //add beginning / to endpoint if it doesn't exist:
   if (!empty($endpoint) and $endpoint[0] != "/")
      $endpoint = "/" . $endpoint;

   $ch = curl_init($pmServer . $endpoint);
   curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array("Authorization: Bearer " . $accessToken));
   curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30);
   curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
   $method = strtoupper($method);

   switch ($method) {
      case "GET":
         break;
      case "DELETE":
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "DELETE");
         break;
      case "PUT":
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "PUT");
      case "POST":
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
         curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query($aVars));
         break;
      default:
         throw new Exception("Error: Invalid HTTP method '$method' $endpoint");
         return null;
   }

   $oRet = new StdClass;
   $oRet->response = json_decode(curl_exec($ch));
   $oRet->status   = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);
   curl_close($ch);

   if ($oRet->status == 401) { //if session has expired or bad login:
      header("Location: loginForm.php"); //change to match your login method
      die();
   }
   elseif ($oRet->status != 200 and $oRet->status != 201) { //if error
      if ($oRet->response and isset($oRet->response->error)) {
         print "Error in $pmServer:\nCode: {$oRet->response->error->code}\n" .
               "Message: {$oRet->response->error->message}\n";
      }
      else {
         print "Error: HTTP status code: $oRet->status\n";
      }
   }

   return $oRet;
}

$url = '/api/1.0/workflow/extrarest/user/update';
$oRet = pmRestRequest("PUT", $url, $aUserProps, $oToken->access_token, 'json');
print "\n\n".json_encode($oRet->response, JSON_PRETTY_PRINT | JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES | JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE)."\n\n";

It sounds every thing is OK, however I do not know what is my wrong?
Would you please glimpse at my code?
Thanks in advance

I didn't realize that you were doing this inside a trigger.
Inside triggers you can't define global variables inside a function definition.
This doesn't work inside a trigger:
Code: Select all
function X() {
   global Y;
}
Here are functions that you need to use inside a trigger:
Code: Select all
/*Function to login to ProcessMaker using oAuth2.
Parameters:
 $clientId      The REST client ID (obtained when registrering the REST application).
 $clientSecret  The REST client secret code (obtained when registrering the REST application).
 $username      The ProcessMaker user's username.
 $password      The ProcessMaker user's password.
 $server        The protocol and domain or IP number (and port number if necessary). 
                If left empty or not included, then the current protocol and domain or 
                IP number will be used by default.

$url = "$pmServer/api/1.0/$pmWorkspace/extrarest/user/update';
$oRet = pmRestRequest("PUT", $url, $aUserProps, $oToken->access_token, 'json');

if ($oRet->status != 200) {
   throw new Exception($oRet->response);
}

By the way, you probably should reread the REST documentation at https://wiki.processmaker.com/3.1/developer_info to make sure that you understand it.
