Is it true that a member's PIN code can not
be registered/updated through the APIs?

Hi,

If the channel is configured to use PIN as credentials so you can use the changeCredentials method from AccessWebservices to update an existing PIN. Register a new PIN is not possible because you first need to inform the actual PIN to be able to update.

Too bad. For programs that solely let users interact via APIs that leads to some practical problems if they want to include the SMS payment option. Having an admin assign PIN codes is not an optimal solution, especially in large programs.

Any chance that this will work differently in Cyclos 4?

Hi,

A rectification. It is possible to create a PIN together with a new Member. And it is possible to update the PIN as well.
What is not possible is to set a new PIN for a Member that never had a PIN.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that insight. However, I'm looking at the registerMember method and do not see the relevant parameters for registering a PIN code. Could you point me to the proper section in the WS documentation.
