Exporting all vendors rates (old views): filter by Last Modification. Getting information through the API.

Juan (Comunica Translations) 2 months ago in API updated by Viktor Mizsei 2 months ago 2


I have found the way to retrieve all vendors rates in a CSV through the "old views" system. The thing is that I don't want to retrieve all of them, just the ones that changed in the last X days.

Did you find a way to fiilter by LastModification?
And overall, is there a way to retrieve this information through the API? Or at least through a macro that then I can retrieve the results from the API.

Thanks a lot for your information.
My best regards.


Auto Calculate payables box isnt ticked when posting projects via API

Bartosz Gumula 2 months ago in API 0

Hello all!

I wonder if anybody who is using some sort of integration to POST xtrf project via API is having a similar issue.

The box in the payables is often unchecked

Image 2523

It used to be more rare few months ago but now it happens so often that it is really hard to keep track of finances in the project.

I cannot find anything in any API call that relates to updating that field

How can I build macros with no scope id?

Juan (Comunica Translations) 5 months ago in API updated 4 months ago 2


I was wondering if there is a way to execute a macro without having to have a scope. It's to mostly use it through the API.

For example, now I am trying to build a macro that accepts the projectId (in my case YYYY/NNNN), searches for it and returns the project information. In this case, what the Project's scope is waiting for, is the internalId (XXXXX). But in my case, I don't need to specify any ids (for the scope). Only a parameter with the ProjectId.

Thanks a lot.

My best regards.


Retreiving the contents of a Smart View with Browers Get API

Ian J 5 months ago in API updated by Ben Miller 5 months ago 1

I'm trying to understand how to properly use the Get API functions in the browers class. There is an API call for "Return views detailed information, suitable for browser" but I'm struggling with the returned data. I input my Class Name, View ID, Etc, but it is only returning the filtering information and not the actual information present in the smart view. 

I'd like to figure out how to gain a similar functionality to the "XTRF for Sheets" addon, which works well but is a little slow and pops errors frequently. Any help or insight is greatly appreciated! 


Client Feedback (Complaint) via CP API

Bartosz Gumula 6 months ago in API updated 5 months ago 6

Hi Team,

I wonder if anybody tried posting Client Complaint via CP API.

We are trying to make a connection between ticketing system in which we manage complaints with XTRF, and my idea is to post feedback via API so it unlocks the projects and notifies relevant people without manual action or e-mail.

The issue is that the string that is within the body 

"type": "string",

is unknown and couldnt find anything in the documentation, nor when I tried random stuff like

How/where can we get a copy of the xtrf radzisz java library so we can add it to our local development projects?

Is it possible to change the underlying process template while submiting project/quote via API?

Bartosz Gumula 10 months ago in API updated 10 months ago 2

Hi guys!

I am currently trying to streamline the process and was wondering if there is an option to switch the process that lays under the service.

The situation is: 

We have a service named "Translation" which includes this - translation done in memoQ.

The client would like to order a Translation + DTP - which is a bit different production workflow, but we do not want to create a service for each of the combinations of different steps. 

The ideal scenario would be for us:

The client orders translation and selects that he/she needs a DTP.

The quote in XTRF would still have a service "translation" but the steps that appear in the process would have translation + DTP template so our production team would not need to change it manually.
