A PHP SOAP wrapper for the Autotask Web Service API
PHP
Branch: master

README.md

Introduction

autotask-php is designed to make it easier to interact with the Autotask Web Services API by providing interfaces that actually match the official documentation.

All objects that are exposed by Autotask have wrapper classes located in the src/AutotaskObjects folder.

If you find any bugs, or have feature requests, please file an issue in GitHub or open a pull request.

This client is under active development, and therefore has no stable version.

Installation

Composer

Ensure that composer is installed on your machine. You will need to create a composer.json file in the root directory of your application.

{
    "require": {
        "opendns/autotask-php": "dev-master"
    }
}

Once the composer.json file is created, follow these steps from composer to install the autotask-php package.

Composer creates its own autoloader. Include vendor/autoload.php in your application config file and you will have full access to the autotask-php client.

Manual

  1. download the zip or clone the git repo from GitHub
  2. if necessary, extract the zip to your desired location
  3. add a require_once call to include src/autoload.php to get access to the Client.

Usage

Fetch your zone WSDL

// This code is designed to find your exact wsdl location.
// If you already know your zone's wsdl URL, you can skip
// this step.
$username = 'admin@happymsp.biz';
$password = 'VeryVeryVeryVerySecurePassword';
$authWsdl = 'https://webservices.autotask.net/atservices/1.5/atws.wsdl';
$opts = array('trace' => 1);
$client = new ATWS\Client($authWsdl, $opts);
$zoneInfo = $client->getZoneInfo($username);

print_r($zoneInfo);

Search Contacts

$authOpts = array(
    'login' => $username,
    'password' => $password,
    'trace' => 1,   // Allows us to debug by getting the XML requests sent
);
$wsdl = str_replace('.asmx', '.wsdl', $zoneInfo->getZoneInfoResult->URL);
$client = new ATWS\Client($wsdl, $authOpts);

// Instantiate a Query object, designed to make complex
// queries simple.
$query = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\Query('Contact');

$firstnameField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('firstname');
$firstnameField->addExpression('Equals', 'Steve');

$query->addField($firstnameField);

// If you want to debug the XML produced by the Query object
// print($query->asXml());

// Print the results of the query
print_r($client->query($query));

More Detailed Queries

We have provided support for some of the more detailed queries that you may need to execute. A given query can have multiple QueryField objects and a given QueryField can have multple QueryFieldExpression objects.

$authOpts = array(
    'login' => $username,
    'password' => $password,
    'trace' => 1,   // Allows us to debug by getting the XML requests sent
);
$wsdl = str_replace('.asmx', '.wsdl', $zoneInfo->getZoneInfoResult->URL);
$client = new ATWS\Client($wsdl, $authOpts);

// Instantiate a Query object, designed to make complex
// queries simple.
$query = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\Query('Contact');

// Add a QueryField with multiple expressions
$firstnameField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('firstname');
// Multiple Expressions in a single Field results in a logical OR
$firstnameField->addExpression('BeginsWith', 'S');
$firstnameField->addExpression('Contains', 'e');

$query->addField($firstnameField);

$lastnameField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('lastname');
$lastnameField->addExpression('BeginsWith', 'M');

// Add a second QueryField -- multiple Fields are ANDed together
$query->addField($lastnameField);

// print($query->asXml());
print_r($client->query($query));

Really Detailed Queries

Need access to extremely detailed queries that involce using Conditions? Support for condition queries have been added to the autotask-php client. The important thing to note when using conditions is that order matters. Any QueryCondition or QueryField added will be serialized to XML in that order.

QueryCondition objects can include other QueryCondition objects, as well as QueryField objects. The example below attempts to showcase the possibilities of using a QueryCondition object.

$authOpts = array(
    'login' => $username,
    'password' => $password,
    'trace' => 1,   // Allows us to debug by getting the XML requests sent
);
$wsdl = str_replace('.asmx', '.wsdl', $zoneInfo->getZoneInfoResult->URL);
$client = new ATWS\Client($wsdl, $authOpts);

// Instantiate a Query object, designed to make complex
// queries simple.
$query = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\Query('Contact');

// QueryConditions default to logical ANDs. If you want to
// using logcal OR, specify it when creating the QueryCondition
$wrappingCondition = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryCondition('OR');
$conditionOne = new \ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryCondition();
$conditionTwo = new \ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryCondition('OR');

$firstField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('firstname');
$firstField->addExpression('Equals', 'Joe');

$secondField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('firstname');
$secondField->addExpression('Equals', 'Larry');

$thirdField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('lastname');
$thirdField->addExpression('Equals', 'Brown');

$fourthField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('firstname');
$fourthField->addExpression('Equals', 'Mary');

$fifthField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('lastname');
$fifthField->addExpression('Equals', 'Smith');

$sixthField = new ATWS\AutotaskObjects\QueryField('city');
$sixthField->addExpression('NotEqual', 'Albany');

// AND together the 2nd and 3rd fields into a condition
$conditionOne->addField($secondField);
$conditionOne->addField($thirdField);

// AND together the 4th and 5th fields into a condition
$conditionTwo->addField($fourthField);
$conditionTwo->addField($fifthField);

// OR together the 1st Condition and 2nd Condition
// NOTE: This is an OR because of how $conditionTwo
// was defined
$wrappingCondition->addCondition($conditionOne);
$wrappingCondition->addCondition($conditionTwo);


// Add the 1st Field to the Query
$query->addField($firstField);

// OR together the 1st Field and the wrapping Condition
// NOTE: This is an OR because of how $wrappingCondition
// was defined.
$query->addCondition($wrappingCondition);

// AND together the 6th Field and (1st Field OR wrapping Condition)
$query->addField($sixthField);

// If you want to debug the XML produced by the Query object
// print($query->asXml());

// Print the results of the query
print_r($client->query($query));

Since the above example is so complex, we have included the "SQL Equivalent" conditional, and the XML that is produced by the Client.

    firstname = 'Joe'
    OR (
        (firstname = 'Larry' AND lastname = 'Brown')
        OR
        (firstname = 'Mary' AND lastname = 'Smith')
    )
)
AND city <> 'Albany'
