The fetchByVid method returns an existing WebSession object that matches the input VID. Make this call once you receive the success or failure status from the form post, which will be after HOA has created the object according to the corresponding WebSession object’s method attribute. HOA includes the WebSession object’s VID in the redirection URL to make the VID available to you in your success or failure page code.


srd: sparse response description, a SOAP string (which must be a JSON object), in which you specify the elements you want returned.This parameter enables the calling system to constrain a method call to return only components you specify. This gives you greater control over returned content, and improves response time within the Vindicia platform by reducing the processing needed for the call.

Some fields are required, either practically or in the WSDL, and will be returned regardless of the srd. A null srd returns the complete response.

vid: the WebSession object’s Vindicia identifier, which serves as the search criterion. This VID corresponds to the vin_WebSession_vid element in the order form submitted by the customer to HOA.


return: an object of type Return that indicates the success or failure of the call.

session: the WebSession object that matches the input VID.


In addition to those listed in Standard Return Codes, this call returns:

Return Code

Return String


No VID specified to load session by.


Unable to load session: No match for VID vid.


Unable to load session by VID vid: error-description.
