    Default How to add users using the SOAP service?


    I'm trying to integrate Sugar into our java app.

    I am looking at the wsdl, and cannot see any obvious method for adding users.

    Can someone enlighten me?

    Default Re: How to add users using the SOAP service?


    I was able to modify the following Developer Guide example - Creating or Updating a Record - REST and PHP - SugarCRM Support Site

    This example is using the REST web service. I would recommend switching to REST, for performance and longevity purposes. Here is the script I used:


    $url = "http://{Site URL}/service/v4/rest.php";
    $username = "Username";
    $password = "Password";

    //function to make cURL request
    function call($method, $parameters, $url)
    $curl_request = curl_init();

    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION, CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_0);
    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 0);

    $jsonEncodedData = json_encode($parameters);

    $post = array(
    "method" => $method,
    "input_type" => "JSON",
    "response_type" => "JSON",
    "rest_data" => $jsonEncodedData

    curl_setopt($curl_request, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post);
    $result = curl_exec($curl_request);

    $result = explode("\r\n\r\n", $result, 2);
    $response = json_decode($result[1]);

    return $response;

    //login ------------------------------------------------

    $login_parameters = array(

    $login_result = call("login", $login_parameters, $url);

    echo "<pre>";
    echo "</pre>";

    //get session id
    $session_id = $login_result->id;

    //create account ----------------------------------------

    $set_entry_parameters = array(
    //session id
    "session" => $session_id,

    //The name of the module from which to retrieve records.
    "module_name" => "Users",

    //Record attributes
    "name_value_list" => array(
    //to update a record, you will nee to pass in a record id as commented below
    //array("name" => "id", "value" => "<Record's ID Value>"),
    array("name" => "user_name", "value" => "jdoe"),
    array("name" => "user_hash", "value" => "839ba8d071c895fa34fee16d75c67634"),
    array("name" => "first_name", "value" => "John"),
    array("name" => "last_name", "value" => "Doe"),
    array("name" => "is_admin", "value" => "0"),
    array("name" => "default_team", "value" => "1"),
    array("name" => "status", "value" => "Active"),

    $set_entry_result = call("set_entry", $set_entry_parameters, $url);

    echo "<pre>";
    echo "</pre>";


    This will create a Regular User, jdoe, John Doe, with the password Sugar123! (the password value was piped through an MD5 Hash generator), with an Active status, and their default team set to Global. Each of the 'name / value' pairs is a database value in the 'users' table so you can grab database column names and add them to the example as needed. For more examples definitely check out the Web Services section of the SugarCRM Support site - Web Services - SugarCRM Support Site

    Kind regards,
