The fetchByVid method returns an Address object whose VID matches the input. To update a stored customer address, first load it into your application with this method. The VID you specify as an argument is usually the one you obtain from an Account object.


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


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

address: the Address object whose VID matches the input.


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

Return Code

Return String


One of the following:

  • No addresses match VID input-vid.
  • Unable to load VID input-vid: error-description.
  • Missing required parameter vid.


$accountVid = 'MyVindiciaAccountVID';

// Create a SOAP caller object

$addr = new Address();
$addrVID = "14e1dce6f48e901464fce22145982a59642aa9f4";

// now load an address object by VID

$response = $addr->fetchByVid($addrVID);
if($response['returnCode'] == 200) {

$fetchedAddr = $response['data']->address;

else {

// The call was unsuccessful

print "Return code: " . $response['returnCode'] . "\n";
print "Return string: " . $response['returnString'] . "\n";
