The following script renders the table of contents for this page.

Overview

A PHP example demonstrating how to retrieve a list of records from a module with the get_entry_list method using cURL and the v4 REST API.

This example will retrieve a list of leads.

Example

<?php

    $url = "http://{site_url}/service/v4/rest.php";
    $username = "admin";
    $password = "password";

    //function to make cURL request
    function call($method, $parameters, $url)
    {
        ob_start();
        $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(
