The Timecard SOAP API

The Timecard SOAP API is similar to the EService Soap API, in that it provides methods for retrieving, updating, and deleting data stored on the server.

The API is published separately at the moment, as another interface for linking into the Timecard server, although there is some progress on integrating the two products together in a future release.

The Interface Definition

Below is a summary of the important functions that make up the Timecard API (a full java doc style specification can be found here). Each function is called, passing in at least one parameter, a UserIDBean. This bean contains the user name and password of a previously registered Timecard User, with administrative rights. This ensures only authorised users are able to access the interface.

Timecard User Management Functions

Method Summary
createUser Creates a new user based on the user data passed in.
getUserDetail Gets all the details of a specified user.
getUserDetails Gets all the details for all the users (returns an array of UserBean).
updateUser Updates a particular user with new details.
updateUserPassword Updates a user's password.
deleteUser Deletes an existing user.
getUnsynchronisedUsers Retrieves all users who have not previously been synchronised and acknowledged, and all users that have changed since their last synchronisation.
ackUserSynchronisation Acknowledges that synchronisation has been performed on the selected users.

Timecard Field Device Management Functions

getFieldDeviceDetail Gets the full set of details for a specified field device.
getFieldDeviceDetails Gets the full set of details for all specified field devices.
getFieldDeviceDetailsUpdatedSince Gets the full set of details for all field devices that have been updated since the specified date and time.
updateFieldDevice Updates a field device with new details.
