Simplified Login Page Using CCB API – Part II

Welcome to another CCB Tutorial.

Picking up from where we left off last, it was brought to my attention that last week’s tutorial may have another option as it pertains to creating a simplified login page using the CCB API.

Last week’s tutorial focused on validating a user’s credentials simply using the Individual Profile from Login and Password CCB API service.

Again, last week’s tutorial and today’s tutorial are not a secure or fool-proof login system, and should not be depicted or interpreted as such.

In addition to using the Individual Profile from Login and Password CCB API service, I would like to introduce you to another CCB API service that can be interchanged as well: Community Login. Read This Tutorial

Simplified Login Page Using CCB API

Welcome back! Today’s tutorial will focus on creating a simple and functioning login page that validates a user’s credentials.

I use the term validate instead of authenticate because this is truly not a secure or fool-proof login system using CCB’s API.

The API service we’ll use, Individual Profile from Login and Password, simply states that using this service returns an individual profile for the login and password provided.

However, with a bit of elbow grease, we’re going to use this service to create a simple login page.

Accessing and Displaying Group Profiles By ID

In today’s tutorial, I’m sharing with you how to access and display group profiles by id.

Not to be confused with the group_profiles API service — which allows you to pass in a given date and have all groups created or modified since that date returned to you, today’s tutorial will access group_profiles_from_id API service.

So instead of focusing on returning ALL group profiles, we’ll focus on accessing and displaying a specific group by its group id (as shown below).

 

That stated, let’s get started with today’s tutorial. Read This Tutorial

Retrieving a List of all Queue Managers

Not long ago, I provided a tutorial that offered the ability and functionality to retrieve a full list of process managers and the total number of processes managed.

Today’s tutorial somewhat builds upon the aforementioned tutorial; however, instead of focusing on process managers, we’ll turn our attention to the CCB API service for queue managers: queue_managers. Read This Tutorial

Displaying Individual Calendar Listings

Four score and seven years ago… ok, maybe not that long ago. 🙂

Maybe it was a year or two ago that I published how to retrieve and customize a public web calendar for your church using CCB’s API.

As with most of CCB, some of the native functionality leaves a church desiring more in the area of visual appeal.

So just as we did with the public web calendar tutorial, today’s tutorial will tackle how to retrieve and customize calendar listings for individuals. Read This Tutorial
