Renewal Fees description on Cart Invoice


Using Pay Dues ASI standard ipart, we are able to add an invoice to user cart with dues product and subscription products.
But the shopping cart invoice description text displaying as "Renewal Fees". We want to add general text instead of Renewal Fees. Any Idea where we can apply this change?

Please review screen-shot.


SSL 3 and payflowpro


We received this email overnight from payflowpro.

I'm trying to understand if iMIS uses SSL3 to integrate with payflowpro and what if any steps need to be done to swap to TLS?

Does anyone know?

Immediate Action Required – SSL3.0 Vulnerability

Dear ,

On Tuesday, October 14, 2014, details were released about a vulnerability to version 3 of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL 3.0). Since that time, PayPal has been hard at work to mitigate any potential impact to our merchants.

To help mitigate risk associated with this vulnerability, PayPal will discontinue support for SSL 3.0 on December 3, 2014 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. Unfortunately, this necessary step may cause compatibility problems resulting in the inability for customers to make purchases on your site or other processing issues.

We wouldn’t have been able to extend our support of SSL 3.0 to December 3, 2014, at 12:01 a.m. PST if we hadn’t also been able to take significant steps to migrate the risk of this vulnerability for our merchants. We want to assure our merchants we have seen no evidence that the SSL 3.0 issue has led to any compromise of security at PayPal.

Keeping our merchants’ accounts and data secure is PayPal’s top priority and a guiding principle when we make challenging decisions, like this one.

We’re here to help our merchants through this process. We’ve put together a comprehensive Merchant Response Guide to ensure systems are secure from this vulnerability.

What do I need to do?

If you don’t manage website integrations for your business, we strongly encourage you to work with your website service partner (developer, hosting company or e-commerce platform, etc.) and share the Merchant Response Guide, which provides the basic guidelines on how to update to Transport Layer Security (TLS). If your website service has questions or need support, advise them to contact our Merchant Technical Support.

Thank you for your prompt attention to move this issue and understanding of our approach. Though we recognize this necessary step may cause compatibility issues, we can’t stress enough that this short-term inconvenience is heavily outweighed by our joint promise to our respective customers that we will keep their accounts and financial details safe. We plan to keep our customers up to date on how we are addressing this issue via the appropriate channels, including PayPal Forward, our Twitter handle, Customer Service and for merchants, through our Merchant Services team. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work around the clock to better serve you and keep you and our consumers safe.

For technical assistance, please call the Pay flow Support Team at (888) 883-9770 and select option 2. They will be able to direct your call to our dedicated team of engineers who can help answer your questions. Our engineering resources are available Monday thru Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm CST.

Users unable to log in, no password entry in the Name_Security table. Procedure/Trigger?

How does the password field get updated in the Name_Security table?  I've created some users using the iMIS desktop andthe password field is showing blank in the name_security table.  I would imagine that there is job or trigger that sets the value to what the user has entered.  We are completing an exercise to update the logon name to the users email address so we want to verifiy that the users will be able to login once the change is complete.

Enabling iMIS Security When Validating User Credentials Against Another Database.

Introduction to Problem:

We had a client who moved to another CRM provider but wanted to manage their website’s content with iMIS WCM. The challenges were 1) validating user credentials against the 3rd party CRM when they log in through iMIS, 2) after validation is successful, activate the iMIS website security and 3) add a record in iMIS when the user exists in the 3rd party CRM but not iMIS.

MembershipWebService and Active/Inactive/Suspended statuses

I am using the MembershipWebService to create a custom login script in a third-party content management system. I want to write the script so that it will check to see whether the account is Active (and not Inactive or Suspended) before I authenticate.

Is there a way to check the account status using the MembershipWebService? Will iMIS authenticate an account if the status of the account is Inactive or Suspended?

Problem with Login cookie using the MembershipWebService's LoginUserAndProvideCookies request


We are working on integrating a third-party PHP-based CMS with iMIS using the MembershipWebService. To start out, I have created a simple script in PHP that calls the MembershipWebService's LoginUserAndProvideCookies request, and I get a "Login" cookie back (as well as one other cookie, but it looks like only the Login cookie is necessary for iMIS authentication). We are making this request on the iMIS SQL server, which is based at (this is not available to the public). For the cookie, I set the domain to "" to allow all subdomains.

Letter Module Functionality

When using the Letter Moudle, we are able to create and merge letters in to our IMIS System locally at each work station.  However when sharing these form letters between users, only the originating user is able to use the form letter.  The 3 or 4 additional users are unable to use the form letter.  Has anyone solved this issue?


Word merge letters - Search parameter default source

I have modified the Main Tables, Search and Report Fields parameters in Report Specs for a Word letter.

When a user wants to copy and modify this letter, they do "Save As" within the iMIS letter system. When iMIS creates the new entry in Report_Desc then it takes the Main Tables information from the letter being copied. However, it takes the Search and Report Fields information from elsewhere in iMIS.

I have found where the Report Fields value comes from; it is in System_Params where ParameterName = 'FR_Control.WordMergeFields' (FR for fundraising).

However, I cannot tack down where the Search value is being pulled from.

Using OAuth with iMIS - Logon with Facebook or twitter

I have been asked by an AE whether it would be possible for us to create a custom login page for iMIS that allowed users to login to iMIS using either their Facebook, google or twitter credentials, 

All these apps now use OAuth 2 - which I have been reading about here  and here

public views login integration with separate website

We would like our members to login into our association website but be instantly logged in our public view system without logging in twice.My concern is that we do not have access to the source code within the public view system, only the compiled version.

So my question is there any way technically that this can happen without touching the public view system.
