Dictionary for SOA?

I'm trying to figure out where several details of contacts and organizations can be found within SOA.

Some fields still giving me problems:

  1. Name.CATEGORY
    Note that contrary to the documentation, this field is often used for things that have nothing at all to do with dues billing.
  2. CO_ID for company records.
    Party and ComboParty both have ParentOrganization, but what about companies with a parent company?
  3. Name.PAID_THRU
  4. Name.TITLE

I know I'm not supposed to be thinking of this in terms of the database schema.  I'm just using the database names to communicate unambiguously.  At the end of the day, I don't care where iMIS and SOA store the category or paid-thru date, but when a user points at the screen and says "I want it there", I have to know how to put it there using SOA, or else I can't use SOA.

How to authenticate from an ASP site, not ASP.NET, get user ID using MembershipWebService

I had a customer today that asked the question below. Also figure to have another one shortly. So I am seeking guidance on how to approach the need to authenticate with the membership web service and get an iMIS ID. It is not clear how or if you get a cookie that can be read, or can return the ID. I know that getting an ID was not available in the membership web service in previous versions.

Please post suggestions on how to approach.

This is her question:

 I now need to generate a list of conference participants on our site (an ASP site)

Tracking Session ID in WCM

We're trying to track someone's path in WCM.   

The .NET session id (HttpContext.Current.Session.SessionID)does not get reset when someone logs in or out of WCM.  We need to recognize separate logins as separate visits.

Is there something in iMIS that we can use for this? something like Asi.ContentManagerNet.SessionState.SessionID

We want to consider each login to WCM to be a unique activity.

PHP Toolkit?

I am at a loss. Where is the php toolkit?

Calling SOA Web services via https returns iMIS Login page

I posted this as a comment to a blog post, but since I fear it's being overlooked because of the post's title ...

I'm trying to connect via my local machine to our install of the SOA services. I started with the project in and am able to get the net.tcp binding working just fine:

Running an IQA with Multiple Parameters via SOA

I'm trying to run an IQA query via SOA and to pass through multiple parameters. I couldn't find any documentation though a found a couple of samples here in the community.

The base code I grabbed from Paul Rogers example is:

var em = new EntityManager(AppContext.CurrentIdentity.UserId);
var query = new QueryData("IQA");
// The first query criterion MUST be named "QueryName"
query.AddCriteria(CriteriaData.Equal("QueryName", "$/ContactManagement/DefaultSystem/Queries/SingleContact"));

Product payment causes exception in payment properties on some servers


The following code creates an order, attaches contacts and order lines where required and processes the order using a credit card. The code is being used within a Sitefinity 3.7x based website using .Net 4

This code works fine in the following situations:

- Debug on my machine. Windows 7 64bit, VS2010

This code fails in the following situation:

SecurePay iMIS Integration

Please find attached the installation package for integrating the SecurePay payment gateway into iMIS. This contains instructions for integrating with the iMIS desktop, and also for the public view of iMIS.

I have also attached the source code for the desktop integration (VB6) and the web integration (C#.NET).

Note: This has been tested using iMIS

The SecurePay API can be downloaded from here:

Find Party by Major Key with SOA

I'm trying to use SOA to find a Party by Major Key.  If a record exists with a specified Major Key then update the Party information, otherwise an insert needs to happen.

An example or sample code of how to find a party by Major Key would be helpful.
