ExaVault PHP API Library - v2 API
Welcome to ExaVault's PHP code library for our v2 API. Our v2 API will allow you to interact with all aspects of the service the same way our web portal would. The library is generated from our API's public swagger YAML file.
To use this library, you'll need PHP 5.5 (or greater) installed as well as composer.
You will also need an ExaVault account, as well as an API key and access token.
Installing the Code Library
Option 1 - Using Composer
You can use composer to add this library to your project by running this command in your project folder:
% composer require exavault/evapi-php
Option 2 - Manual Installation
Alternatively, you can clone the github repo and then run
composer install in the evapi-php directory to install dependencies.
For a gentle introduction to using PHP code with ExaVault's API, check out our code samples. Follow the instructions in that repository's README to run the sample scripts, which will demonstrate how to use several of the generated PHP classes to interact with your ExaVault account.
Writing Your Own Code
When you're ready to write your own code using this library, you'll need to:
- Install our code library in your project, either with
composer require exavault/evapi-phpor by downloading this repository and running
- Include the generated
vendor/autoload.phpto the top of your script
- Provide your API key and access token with every function method on the Api classes, which are in the ExaVault\Api namespace.
- Whenever you instantiate an Api object (ResourcesApi, UsersApi, etc.), override the configuration to point the code at the correct API URL:
$account_url = "https://YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME_HERE.exavault.com/api/v2/"; $accountApi = new ExaVault\Api\AccountApi( new GuzzleHttp\Client(), (new ExaVault\Configuration())->setHost($account_url) );
$resourcesApi = new ExaVault\Api\ResourcesApi( new GuzzleHttp\Client(), (new ExaVault\Configuration())->setHost($account_url) );
$usersApi = new ExaVault\Api\UsersApi( new GuzzleHttp\Client(), (new ExaVault\Configuration())->setHost($account_url) );
