How to access the vtiger CRM REST API using Android?

advertisements

I am trying to access the data of vtiger CRM using its REST API. How can this be done? Are there any examples, ideally including target URLs?

Currently I am trying to access the data using the fetchallalerts PHP file located in the v tiger directory.


Use this:-

Its an example based on https://demo.vtiger.com/ for login

public class Login extends Activity {

      //URL to get JSON Array
      private static String url = "https://demo.vtiger.com/webservice.php?operation=getchallenge&username=admin";

      //JSON Node Names
      private static final String TAG_RESULT = "result";
      private static final String TAG_TOKEN = "token";

      // contacts JSONArray
      JSONArray contacts = null;

      String token = null;
      String sessionId;

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.login);

        if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT > 9) {
            StrictMode.ThreadPolicy policy = new StrictMode.ThreadPolicy.Builder().permitAll().build();
            StrictMode.setThreadPolicy(policy);
        }

        new AsyncTask<Void, Void, Void>() {

            private ProgressDialog dialog = new ProgressDialog(Login.this);
            protected void onPreExecute() {
                   dialog.setMessage("Loging In... Please wait...");
                   dialog.show();
                  }

            @SuppressWarnings("unused")
            JSONObject result;

            @Override
            protected Void doInBackground(Void... params) {

                // Creating new JSON Parser
                JSONParser jParser = new JSONParser();

                // Getting JSON from URL
                JSONObject json = jParser.getJSONFromUrl(url);

                try {
                    // Getting JSON Array
                    result = json.getJSONObject(TAG_RESULT);
                      JSONObject json_result = json.getJSONObject(TAG_RESULT);

                    // Storing  JSON item in a Variable
                    token = json_result.getString(TAG_TOKEN);

                    //Importing TextView

                } catch (JSONException e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }

                String username="admin";
                String accesskeyvalue = "w9OweWKUS4a5sSL";
                String accessKey=md5(token + accesskeyvalue);

                //For debugging purpose only
                //System.out.println(accesskeyvalue);
                //System.out.println(token);
                //System.out.println(accessKey);

        String data = null;

            } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

            }

            text = sb.toString();
