API Tracker

Tiki supports URL arguments and they can be used to interact with the Trackers and the plugins displaying or creating items. For example you can define a default value for a field in a customSearch or force the insertion of a value when creating an item.

Examples


Allow creation, edition and deletion of tracker items in a modal pop-up


This is the html syntax for use in a smarty template file.

Creation of an item in tracker 1
<a class="click-modal tips" title=":Create new item" data-role="button" data-inline="true" href="tiki-tracker-insert_item?trackerId=1">Create new item</a>
Edition of item 3 in tracker 1
<a class="click-modal tips" title=":Edit item" data-role="button" data-inline="true" href="tiki-tracker-update_item?trackerId=1&itemId=3">Edit item 3</a>
Deletion of item 3 in tracker 1
<a class="click-modal tips" title=":Remove item" data-role="button" data-inline="true" href="tiki-tracker-remove_item?trackerId=1&itemId=3">Remove item 3</a>

Create/Update some fields of an item using editable


If you want to update two fields which permanentNames are name and surname and leave the other fields unchanged:

Edition of two fields of item 3 in tracker 1
tiki-tracker-update_item?trackerId=1&itemId=3&editable[]=name&editable[]=surname

(same principle for item creation)

Pre-fill field values using fields

Note: once you use fields, only the fields which you specifically mention will be available for edition.

Edition of three fields of item 3 in tracker 1 with a prefilled value
tiki-tracker-update_item?trackerId=1&itemId=3&fields~name&fields~surname&fields~education=None
Creation of item 3 in tracker 1 with a prefilled value and two extra fields
tiki-tracker-insert_item?trackerId=1&itemId=3&fields~name&fields~surname&fields~education=None

This will prefill the "education" field and it will display fields name and surname as empty fields. It is probably perfect for creating a new item but not what you would expect for editing an existing item (loss of previous values).

A better solution which does not lose previously entered content:

Edition of three fields of item 3 in tracker 1 with one prefilled value
tiki-tracker-update_item?trackerId=1&itemId=3&editable[]=name&editable[]=surname&editable[]=school&fields~education=None



Here we use it to create an item with a specific category Id.
(replace "childrenIdNumber" with your category field permaname)

tiki-tracker-insert_item?trackerId=2&next=tiki-tracker-insert_item%3FtrackerId%3D3&forced~childrenIdNumber=17

All fields can be edited except the one which is forced which will not be shown.

This can be used with a variable like a field from a plugin list. Here we prefill the (user)name and hide it.The smarty replace modifier is required to remove extra space(s) added to the value(s)

tiki-tracker-insert_item?trackerId=11&forced~paymentsFamilyName={$row.name|replace:' ':''}

Here we use it to create an item with a specific category Id.
(replace "permaname" with your category field permaname)

tiki-tracker-update_item?trackerId=2&itemId=178&fields~childrenIdNumber=17
