Infopark WebCRM Connector

Build Status

Infopark WebCRM Connector is the official Ruby SDK for Infopark WebCRM API v1. It basically wraps the WebCRM web services API using Active Resource.

API v1 is the old API. For API v2 please refer to the Infopark WebCRM SDK. It is highly recommended to upgrade to WebCRM SDK.

Currently, the latest version of Active Resource 4 with Ruby 2.2.2 is tested and supported. It is not planned to ever support Active Resource 5.

Installation

Add infopark_crm_connector to your gemfile:

gem 'infopark_crm_connector'

Install the gem with Bundler:

bundle install

Configuration

require 'infopark_crm_connector'

Infopark::Crm.configure do |configuration|
  configuration.url = "https://webcrm.server/url"
  configuration. = "webcrm_user"
  configuration.api_key = "api_key_of_webcrm_user"
end

See Infopark::Crm.configure for a complete list of configuration keys.

Example Usage

This Ruby SDK provides the WebCRM's domain models Account, Activity, Contact, Event, Mailing, among others. All domain models are subclasses of Infopark::Crm::Core::Resource which itself inherits from ActiveResource::Base and provides methods such as find(id), create(hash), update(hash), search(params) and others.

Contact

# Retrieve the contact identified by the login 'root'
contact = Infopark::Crm::Contact.search(:params => {:login => 'root'}).first

# Change this contact's mail address
contact.update_attribute(:email, '[email protected]')

# Send a new password request mail to the contact's address
contact.password_request

Activity

# Create a new activity kind
Infopark::Crm::CustomType.create(:name => 'support-case', :kind => 'Activity',
    :states => ['created'])

# Create a new activity
activity = Infopark::Crm::Activity.new(:kind => 'support-case')

# Set properties of this activity
activity.title = 'Sprechen Sie Deutsch?'

# Switch to a different request locale
Infopark::Crm.configure {|c| c.locale = 'de'}

# Post the activity (which is going to fail)
activity.save
# => false

# Get to know what's missing
activity.errors.to_hash
# => {:state=>["ist kein g├╝ltiger Wert"]}
