Application Programming Interfaces
Many companies searching for a workflow solution have existing applications that they wish to integrate with a workflow solution. WorkTicket.com allows for customers to integrate our portal into existing applications through a rich and full featured API, or Application Programming Interface.
The use of APIs is available for a one time additional fee based on the specific needs of the customer. The specification of our most universal API, which is based on HTTP, is $299. Any application language that has access to the HTTP protocol can use this API to interact with WorkTicket.com.
For example, suppose you want your application to create a Work Ticket after a form is filled out. If your application is in Visual Basic, an easy way to perform this task is to use the XMLHTTP object. Just insert the following code:
Sub StartWorkTicket(in_strCompany, in_strTicketName)
Dim obj, strURL
Set obj = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
strURL = "http://www.workticket.com/wt/api/create_ticket.asp?COMPANY=" & _
in_strCompany & "&TICKET_NAME=" & in_strTicketName
On Error Resume Next
Call obj.open("GET", strURL, False)
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
MsgBox "StartWorkTicket:" & strURL & " failed with: '" & _
Err.description & "'"
ElseIf obj.status = 200 Then
result = Trim(obj.responseText)
MsgBox "StartWorkTicket: Failed " & strURL & _
" returned " & obj.status
On Error Goto 0
WorkTicket.com provides APIs for the following tasks: Creating Work Tickets, Querying Work Tickets, Cancelling Work Tickets, advancing Work Tickets through their stages, and more.
