exportActiveCurrencies

Category

Metadata retrieval

Description

Returns metadata for the complete list of all currencies which have been configured in the system.

Permissions Required To Invoke

None (must be valid credentials for the instance)

Parameters Required On Request

Credentials

 

This method's request contains only a credentials tag to identify and authorize the calling user. Once verified, the method returns an XML document describing the complete set of all currencies which have been configured in the system. A currency has been "configured" once it has been added to the currency list in Currency Administration, even if it does not yet have an exchange rate. Instances which do not have the Multiple Currencies feature enabled return only a single currency in this list.

Request Format

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<call method="exportActiveCurrencies" callerName="a string that identifies your client application">
    <credentials login="sampleuser@company.com" password="my_pwd"/>
   </call>

credentials element

Tag Name

credentials

Description

All API calls must contain a single credentials element to identify the user invoking the API. The API call is then performed as this user (any audit trail or history of actions in the system will show that this user performed the action), and therefore the user must have the required permissions to perform the action in order for the API call to succeed.
