A Harvest Java Client

CircleCI codecov Known Vulnerabilities

harvest-client is a Java client for the Harvest REST API (https://help.getharvest.com/api-v2/)

Javadoc

Introduction

With harvest-client you can use the Harvest v2 API with a nice Java interface:

// Load configuration from application.conf in src/main/resources of your application
Harvest harvest = new Harvest();
// list all users
List<User> users = harvest.users().list();

for (User user : users) {
    log.debug("Found user: {}", user);
}
// create new user
User userInfo = ImmutableUser.builder()
                .firstName("first")
                .lastName("last")
                .email("test@example.com")
                .build();

User newUser = harvest.users().create(userInfo);

Have a look in the test folders for examples. Each API endpoint has a Create, List and Update test class.

Download

We use github package registry to publish this project

Packages

Gradle

implementation 'ch.aaap:harvest-client:$version'

Maven

<dependency>
  <groupId>ch.aaap</groupId>
  <artifactId>harvest-client</artifactId>
  <version>$version</version>
</dependency>

Getting started with Development

Using a build published on Github Packages

Packages for this project are first pushed to Github Package Registry (and then to maven central, not implemented yet). To use it as a dependency from there:

  1. add the following to your build.gradle file:
repositories {
    maven {
          name = "GitHubPackages"
          url = uri("https://maven.pkg.github.com/3ap-ag/harvest-client")
          credentials {
            username = project.findProperty("gpr.user") ?: System.getenv("GH_USERNAME")
            password = project.findProperty("gpr.key") ?: System.getenv("GH_TOKEN")
          }
          content {
            // this repository *only* contains artifacts with this group
            includeGroup "ch.aaap"
          }
        }
}

Using Github package repositories need authentication: see Installing a Package from Github Registry 2. You need to create a personal github token with the permissions: read:packages

  1. Then have it defined either as env. variables in GH_USERNAME and GH_TOKEN or you can add it as gradle properties, e.g. in ~/.gradle/gradle.properties using gpr.user and gpr.key.

  2. Add the dependency, e.g. add to build.gradle:

dependencies {
    implementation 'ch.aaap:harvest-client:1.1.4'
}

Publishing a new version manually

  1. Set new project.version in build.gradle
  2. Use a github token with at least these permissions: write:packages. See About Tokens
  3. Run gradle publish

Prerequisites

  • Java 8 (or higher)
  • Gradle

Run the build end tests

  • Clone or fork this repository
  • Get a personal access token from Harvest
    • Attention: unit tests assume admin access. Don't run them against a production account!
  • Configuring your Harvest account id and authentication token:
    • You will need 2 Harvest accounts with admin access (it's a limitation of the current Harvest API)
    • Either copy reference.conf to src/test/resources/admin{1,2}.conf and insert your credentials
    • Or set the following environment properties:
        $ export HARVEST_ACCOUNT_ID_ADMIN1=YOUR_ACCT_ID_1
        $ export HARVEST_AUTH_TOKEN_ADMIN1=YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN_1
        $ export HARVEST_ACCOUNT_ID_ADMIN2=YOUR_ACCT_ID_2
        $ export HARVEST_AUTH_TOKEN_ADMIN2=YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN_2
  • Run gradle build in the root directory of the repository

Creating a test Harvest account

Go to https://www.getharvest.com/signup Use your 3ap email with a "+" added to the name, e.g. marco+Jul2020@3ap.ch (this way you can create a filter in gmail to archive the emails you get) Choose "Me and my team" Select "Next Step" until the end. Go to "Settings" -> "Chose Modules" -> Tick all modules Only for the second account: Go to "Settings" -> "Edit Preferences" -> Set Time Mode to "Track time via start and end time"

Top left on your name -> My Profile -> link under work email to your Harvest ID settings -> Developers -> create new personal Token (name does not matter) Account ID and token are needed for authentication

Add your token to the local files admin1.conf and admin2.conf under src/test/resources/admin*.conf

Update the CircleCI project environment variables with these Id and tokens here: https://app.circleci.com/settings/project/github/3AP-AG/harvest-client/environment-variables

Debugging

You can see the actual HTTP request and response by setting the log level for ch.aaap.harvestclient.core.Harvest.http to TRACE

Log4j2

<Logger name="ch.aaap.harvestclient.core.Harvest.http" level="trace" additivity="false">
    <AppenderRef ref="Console"/>
</Logger>
