"faraday", "~> 0.13.1"
"faraday_middleware", "~> 0.12.2"
"virtus", "~> 1.0"

Usage

Initialize

QualtricsAPI.configure do |config|
  # mandatory
  config.api_token = "YOUR_QUALTRICS_API_KEY"

  # optionally - you can provide a data center id
  config.data_center_id = "co1" #defaults to co1
end

Surveys

To enumerate all your surveys:

QualtricsAPI.surveys.each do |survey|
  # => #<QualtricsAPI::Survey:0x007fcb72cce350 ....>
end

To enumerate individual pages:

QualtricsAPI.surveys.each_page do |page|
  page.each do |survey|
    # => #<QualtricsAPI::Survey:0x007fcb72cce350 ....>
  end
end

You can search for a survey by id:

survey = QualtricsAPI.surveys.find("surveyIdHere")
# => #<QualtricsAPI::Survey:0x007fcb724f9468 @id="surveyIdHere" ...>

or just:

survey = QualtricsAPI.surveys["surveyIdHere"]
# =>  #<QualtricsAPI::Survey:0x007fcb724f9468 @id="surveyIdHere" ...>

Export Responses From a Survey

Once you have a survey object (QualtricsAPI::Survey], you can start an export like so:

(You can pass any supported options in ruby style!)

export_service = survey.export_responses({ start_date: "2015-03-03 11:11:10" })
# => #<QualtricsAPI::Services::ResponseExportService:0x007fcb742e4e50 ....>

or you can configure it laster...

export_service = survey.export_responses
# => #<QualtricsAPI::Services::ResponseExport:0x007fcb742e4e50 ....>
export_service.start_date = "2015-03-03 11:11:10"

(See Qualtrics API doc for a full list of options)

Then start the export:

export = export_service.start
# => #<QualtricsAPI::ResponseExport:0x007fcb742e4e50 ....>

Then to check the progress

export.status
# => "20.333333%"

export.completed?
# => fasle

# call again to refresh
export.status
# => "100%"

export.completed?
# => true

Once it's finished, you can get the response file URL:

export.file_url
# => "https://co1.qualtrics.com/API/v3/responseexports/ES_id/file"

and download the file:

export.open # creates an IO object connected to the given stream

Checking status on a previous response export

Each response export yeilds an id

export = survey.export_responses({ }).start
# => #<QualtricsAPI::ResponseExport:0x007fcb742e4e50 ....>

export.id
# => "someExportID"

You can save it somewhere in your app and check back later (if you know it's gonna take a while!)

export = QualtricsAPI.response_exports["someExportID"]
# => #<QualtricsAPI::ResponseExport:0x007fcb742e4e50 ....>
export.status
=> "99.99999%"

Panels

To enumerate all the panels:

QualtricsAPI.panels.each do |panel|
  # => #<QualtricsAPI::Panel:0x007f8769aae2c0 ....>
end

To enumerate individual pages:

QualtricsAPI.panels.each_page do |page|
  page.each do |survey|
    # => #<QualtricsAPI::Panel:0x007f8769aae2c0 ....>
  end
end

You can search for a panel by id:

panel = QualtricsAPI.panels.find("panelIdHere")
# => #<QualtricsAPI::Panel:0x007f876906f278 @id="panelIdHere" ...>

or just:

panel = QualtricsAPI.panels["panelIdHere"]
# => #<QualtricsAPI::Panel:0x007f876906f278 @id="panelIdHere" ...>

Panel Members

To import a batch of panel members:

panel = QualtricsAPI.panels.find("panelIdHere")
members = [QualtricsAPI::PanelMember.new(first_name: 'John', last_name: 'Doe', email: 'test@test.com')]
panel.import_members(members)
=> #<QualtricsAPI::PanelImport:0x007fb7db984668 ...>

A PanelImport record is returned, you can use it to check the status of panel import:

members = [QualtricsAPI::PanelMember.new(first_name: 'John', last_name: 'Doe', email: 'test@test.com')]
panel_import = panel.members.import_members(members)
=> #<QualtricsAPI::PanelImport:0x007fb7db984668 ...>
panel_import.status
=> "99.99999%"
panel_import.update_status
panel_import.status
=> "100.0%"

To add a single panel member to a panel:

panel = QualtricsAPI.panels.find("panelIdHere")
member = QualtricsAPI::PanelMember.new(first_name: 'John', last_name: 'Doe', email: 'test@test.com')
panel.create(member)

A new PanelMember record is returned on success; this will give you the ID of the newly created member.
