Subscription Transactions?

Status: Delivered
by on ‎04-12-2017 01:15 PM

Currently, there is no easy way to get a list of transactions for a given subscription id.  To get a list of transactions for a subscription id. I load the subscription to get the customerProfileId and payentProfileId, call getTransactionListForCustomerRequest(customerProfileId, paymentProfileId), loop over the transactions returned in the response, and evaluate if is equal to the subsciptionId I am looking for.  Furthermore, getTransactionListForCustomerRequest() uses paging, so I may need to call that API multiple times to get the collection of transactions for a subscription.


I am requesting there be a new API to get a list of transactions for a subscription id.  The new method would implement the standard paging and sorting.

@RichardH, also, getTransactionListForCustomerRequest does not seem to return ARB recurring payments.

You can now pass new   <includeTransactions> flag is passed with the GetSubscription Request to get lastest 20 transactions  associated with subscription . 


The API documentations will be updated in coming weeks .

@Anurag Any update on this? is there a chance that we can also have a "paging" for this instead the latest 20, which sounds pretty arbitrary btw? Thanks!

Hi @damianignacio 


The API reference will be updated with the details by mid Jan as per last updates from the team . 


You can check the XSD changes for it under 


<xs:element name="ARBGetSubscriptionRequest">
<xs:extension base="anet:ANetApiRequest">
<xs:element name="subscriptionId" type="anet:numericString" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1"/>
<xs:element name="includeTransactions" type="xs:boolean" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"/>
Regarding the last 20 transactions it was mainly due to performance impact but we will be reviewing the API to add more customization based on feedback from the developers . 
You can also add it as a new idea in the forum.

I am using includeTransactions in the latest .net sdk and arbTransactions is always returned as null. Maybe only the production is changed, the testing environment always returns null. Please help
