The fetchByAutobill method, which returns all the Transaction objects generated by Vindicia Subscribe for an AutoBill object, enables you to retrieve the rebilling transactions related to a specific AutoBill. Because Transactions are automatically generated and completed by Vindicia Subscribe, they are usually not in your system. Occasionally, you might need to access them in order to respond to customer queries.


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.

autobill: the AutoBill object that serves as the search criterion. You can identify this object with either its VID or your AutoBill ID (merchantAutoBillId).


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

transactions: an array of one or more Transaction objects whose AutoBill object matches the input.


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

  • Unable to load autobill to search by: No matches.
  • No autobill specified to load transaction by!
