The fetchByVid method returns an AutoBill object whose VID matches the input.

When you create a new AutoBill object with the update() call, CashBox assigns the object a unique ID (VID), which is inside the AutoBill object returned to you by the call. Store this VID locally to use it to retrieve or reference the AutoBill object in later calls.


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 AutoBill 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.

autobill: the AutoBill object whose VID matches the input.


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

$autobillVid = '8367ae7148d071a4e25c24bef856f68f71ee03e3';

// Create an autobill object

$autobill = new AutoBill();

// now load an autobill into the autobill object by VID

$response = $autobill->fetchByVid($autobillVid);

if($response['returnCode'] == 200) {

$fetchedAutoBill = $response['data']->autobill;

// process fetched autobill here
