VETtrak API Change Log - Versions 1.8.0 to 1.11.0 for VETtrak 4.4.4.x to 4.4.6.x

This article contains detailed change logs describing the changes made in each of the following versions of the web connector:

VETtrak 4.4.6.x

Version 1.11.0.0 - April 1, 2016

Updates to reflect functionality introduced in VETtrak version 4.4.6. No breaking changes.

Adds limited support for specifying an Ezidebit payment plan for web enrolments.

When enrolling into an occurrence, occurrence events marked as "optional" are now not copied to the new enrolment, allowing the VETtrak user to control which particular occurrence events are copied to new enrolments and which are not.

Support for the new "addresses are overseas" and "address is not specified" tickboxes for a client address, when using UpdateClientDetails, or when processing a web enrolment with updates on. You don't set these directly - they will be set automatically if you specify the address appropriately as per NCVER rules:

  • For a "not specified" address, you should pass the following in the usual address:
    • Street number: "not specified"
    • Street name: "not specified"
    • City: "not specified"
    • State: empty
    • Postcode: "0000"
  • For an overseas address, you should pass the following in both the usual and postal addresses:
    • City: "not specified"
    • State: "Overseas"
    • Postcode: "OSPC"

Add functions

  1. AddWebPaymentPlan: Call this to specify that the enrolee wants to pay for the web enrolment in instalments through Ezidebit. Note that this only pre-populates a pending payment plan in VETtrak for the invoice generated when the web enrolment is processed. It still requires the VETtrak user to complete the setup for the payment plan in VETtrak after processing the web enrolment.

Modify classes

  1. TWebe
    1. Added fields
      1. PaymentPlanProvider: The provider for the payment plan for the web enrolment.
      2. PaymentPlanFrequency: The instalment payment frequency for the payment plan.
      3. PaymentPlanInstalmentAmount: The amount of each instalment payment for the payment plan.

  1. New fields
    1. Client

Small updates to reflect functionality introduced in VETtrak version 4.4.4.1. No breaking changes.

  1. Fixed a bug with the auto-link enrolments setting not applying when creating an enrolment.
  2. Will now attempt to load custom query fields from a CustomDatabaseMapping.xml file, if it exists, to avoid having to put custom field definitions in the DatabaseMapping.xml file.

Version 1.8.0.0 - December 24, 2014

Upgraded API to work with a VETtrak 4.4.3 database.

Significant changes have been made to pricing-related functionality that will affect existing websites. In VETtrak 4.4.3, enrolments/occurrences can now have pricing items per-unit, and inventory item prices, as well as pricing items against the whole enrolment/occurrence as was the only possibility in VETtrak 4.4.2. Any of these prices may be web published and included in web enrolments. It is also now possible for a pricing item type (the same Pric_ID) to appear on the same occurrence/enrolment multiple times. GetPricingForOccurrence, AddPriceTypesToWebEnrolment and TPric have changed to reflect this functionality.

Add functions

  1. GetPriorEducationRecognitionList: Returns a list of all prior education achievement recognition identifiers, used in TPric.Recognition.

Modify functions

  1. GetPricingForOccurrence (and any pricing details from GetoccurrenceExtendedDetails and SearchWebOccurrences): Returns the additional fields in TPric. Note that Pric_ID no longer uniquely identifies the prices, use Enpr_ID instead for a unique identifier.
  2. AddPriceTypesToWebEnrolment: It is highly recommended that calls to this function be changed to pass an Enpr_ID, instead of a Pric_ID, in each TPric. The Enpr_ID uniquely identifies each pricing item to add. The function still has some backward compatibility in that, if you pass a Pric_ID without an Enpr_ID, it will add each published pricing item of that type in the occurrence to the web enrolment, which may result in putting multiple pricing items in the web enrolment. In addition, if you also specify an Enpr_Amount and/or Enpr_GST, this amount will be applied to each pricing item of that type, which may be incorrect. Also note Pric_ID cannot be used to specify an inventory item - Enpr_ID must be used to specify an inventory item price.
  3. GetUnitStateDetails and GetQualificationStateDetails: Returns new ExpiryMonths field.
  4. GetPaymentsForInvoice: This function now returns payments that have had any effect on the specified invoice. The amount reflects the amount that was disbused to this invoice (not necessarily the entire payment amount). This change is necessary as VETtrak now allows a single payment to be recorded against multiple invoices.
  5. UpdateClientAVDetails, UpdateWebClientAVETMISS, UpdateClientWebWaitlistAVETMISS, UpdateWebEmployeeAVETMISS: Can pass a value for the new Recognition field in each TPred. Only used in Victoria.

Modify classes

  1. TPric
    1. Added fields
      1. Enpr_ID: The unique identifier for the pricing item in the enrolment.
      2. Pric_Type: The type of pricing item, such as tuition fee, government contribution, and inventory item.
      3. Unit_Code: The code of the unit on the occurrence/enrolment that this pricing item is for, or blank if it is not for a unit.
      4. Unit_Name: The name of the unit on the occurrence/enrolment that this pricing item is for, or blank if it is not for a unit.
    2. Changed fields
      1. Pric_ID: This field can no longer be used to uniquely identify a price in an enrolment, use Enpr_ID instead. If this pricing item is an inventory item (ie. Pric_Type is 6), this field will contain the inventory item ID. Pricing item IDs and inventory item IDs may overlap
      2. Pric_Code: If this pricing item is an inventory item (ie. Pric_Type is 6), this field will contain the inventory item code.
      3. Pric_Name: If this pricing item is an inventory item (ie. Pric_Type is 6), this field will contain the inventory item name.
  2. TProcessedWebEnrol
    1. Changed fields
      1. InvoiceItemId: Changed to InvoiceItemIds, now a list of integers. An invoice item is created for each enrolment pricing item, so a single processed web enrolment can now create multiple invoice items.
  3. TPred
    1. Added fields
      1. Recognition: Recognition identifier for prior education. Only used in Victoria, for a client.
  4. TEmpl
    1. Added fields
      1. Empl_ABN: ABN of the employer, now separate to the ACN.
  5. TQualState
    1. Added fields
      1. ExpiryMonths: Number of months after which an award in this qualification and state expires.
  6. TUnitState
    1. Added fields
      1. ExpiryMonths: Number of months after which an award in this unit and state expires.
  7. TOrga
    1. Added fields
      1. ABN: ABN of the organisation.

      1. GovernmentAmount: The total government contribution amount for the enrolment.
    4. EnrolledUnit
      1. GST: The total GST amount for the enrolled unit.
