The fetchByVid method returns a Transaction object whose VID matches the input.

VID is Vindicia’s unique identifier for an object. While saving a Transaction object in its database for the first time after you’ve made a call (such as migrate(), auth(), or authCapture()), Vindicia Subscribe generates and assigns a unique identifier for the object. Some calls return the newly created and updated Transaction object to you in their output response with the VID populated in the output Transaction object. Once you know a Transaction object’s VID, you may refer to that object by its VID in future calls.

Never assign a VID to a new Transaction object; Vindicia Subscribe will generate the VID.


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 Transaction object’s Vindicia unique identifier, which serves as the search criterion.


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

transaction: the Transaction object whose VID matches the input.


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

Return Code

Return String


No VID specified to load transaction by.


One of the following:

  • Unable to load transaction: No match for VID input-vid.
  • Unable to load transaction by VID input-vid: error-description.


// Known VID

$vid = "29ed2ea9753896f980095911972d6695b049f54c";

// create a transaction object to make the call

$soap_tx= new Transaction();

// fetch the record(s)

$response = $tx->fetchByVid($vid);

$fetchedTx = $response['data']->transaction;

print "Transaction amount ". $fetchedTx->getAmount();
print "Transaction status ";
print $fetchedTx->statusLog[0]->status . "\n";



else if($response['returnCode'] == 404) {

print "No transaction found: ";
print $response['returnString'] . "\n";
