Cvent API: Event Fields and Their Format

Not shown but remember when searching through an Event Custom Field, the structure is

thesearch.Filter(0).Field = “CustomEventField:3AE90367-1300-4BDD-A2D4-81030987F581”
thesearch.Filter(0).Value = “Conference Call”

The API docs show CustomEventField<FieldID> but in cvent (website) if you look at your custom fields the “fieldID” is shown as

Field Stub: 3ae90367-1300-4Bdd-a2d4-81030987f581

    Is there a way to search Cvent events by registered contact ids/registered users?

    For example, how can I ask Cvent to give me all events that a specific user has registered for?

    Napkin41, good question, I ran into this same thing. I’ll write a post on it, but to answer your question:

    On our website I added a page for the users “my account page” and on this page the user could change their password (for our website, not cvent), but they could also see all events they’ve attended (and will soon be able to view CPE hours).

    In short: I grab the users id by searching by their sourceid, I then do another search through Registration with the users ID.

    ids = _ws.Search(com.cvent.api.CvObjectType.[Registration], thesearch)

    Then using all the ids of the events, I loop through the ids and create a grid of the event info. This will also list any events that they are currently signed up for.
