Latest Version on Packagist Total Downloads run-tests Psalm Check & fix styling

This package was developed to give you a quick start to communicate with the DocuWare REST API. It is used to query the most common endpoints.

⚠️ This package is not designed as a replacement of the official DocuWare REST API. See the documentation if you need further functionality. ⚠️

💡 What is DocuWare?

DocuWare provides cloud document management and workflow automation software that enables you to digitize, secure and work with business documents, then optimize the processes that power the core of your business.

🛠 Requirements

  • PHP: ^8.0
  • Laravel: ^8.12
  • DocuWare Cloud Access

⚙️ Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require codebar-ag/laravel-docuware

Add the following environment variables to your .env file:

DOCUWARE_URL=https://domain.docuware.cloud
DOCUWARE_USERNAME=user@domain.test
DOCUWARE_PASSWORD=password
DOCUWARE_PASSPHRASE="passphrase"

With the passphrase we are able to encrypt the URLs.

⚠️ You need to escape backslashes in your passphrase with another backslash:

# ❌ Passphrase contains a backslash and is not escaped:
DOCUWARE_PASSPHRASE="a#bcd>2~C1'abc\#"

# ✅ We need to escape the backslash with another backslash:
DOCUWARE_PASSPHRASE="a#bcd>2~C1'abc\\#"

🏗 Usage

🖼 Make encrypted URL

use CodebarAg\DocuWare\Facades\DocuWare;

/**
 * Make encrypted URL for a document in a file cabinet.
 */
$fileCabinetId = '87356f8d-e50c-450b-909c-4eaccd318fbf';
$documentId = 42;

$url = DocuWare::url()
    ->fileCabinet($fileCabinetId)
    ->document($documentId)
    ->make();

/**
 * Make encrypted URL for a document in a basket.
 */
$basketId = 'b_87356f8d-e50c-450b-909c-4eaccd318fbf';

$url = DocuWare::url()
    ->basket($basketId)
    ->document($documentId)
    ->make();

/**
 * Make encrypted URL valid for a specific amount of time. In the example below
 * the URL is valid for one week. Afterwards the URL is no longer working.
 */
$url = DocuWare::url()
    ->fileCabinet($fileCabinetId)
    ->document($documentId)
    ->validUntil(now()->addWeek())
    ->make();

🔐 Authentication

You only need to provide correct credentials. Everything else is automatically handled from the package. Under the hood we are storing the authentication cookie in the cache named docuware.cookies.

But if you need further control you can use the following methods to login and logout with DocuWare:

use CodebarAg\DocuWare\Facades\DocuWare;

/**
 * Login with your credentials. You only need to login once. Afterwards the
 * authentication cookie is stored in the cache `docuware.cookies` and is
 * used for all further requests.
 */
DocuWare::login();

/**
 * Logout your current session. Removes the authentication cookie in the cache.
 */
DocuWare::logout();

💥 Exceptions explained

  • CodebarAg\DocuWare\Exceptions\UnableToMakeRequest

This is thrown if you are not authorized to make the request.


  • CodebarAg\DocuWare\Exceptions\UnableToProcessRequest

This is thrown if you passed wrong attributes. For example a file cabinet ID which does not exist.


  • CodebarAg\DocuWare\Exceptions\UnableToLogin

This exception can only be thrown during the login if the credentials did not match.


  • CodebarAg\DocuWare\Exceptions\UnableToFindPassphrase

This exception can only be thrown during the url making if the passphrase could not be found.


  • CodebarAg\DocuWare\Exceptions\UnableToMakeUrl

Something is wrong during the URL making.


  • Illuminate\Http\Client\RequestException

All other cases if the response is not successfully.

Events

Following events will be fired:

use CodebarAg\DocuWare\Events\DocuWareResponseLog;

// Log each response from the DocuWare REST API.
DocuWareResponseLog::class => [
    //
],

🔧 Configuration file

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="CodebarAg\DocuWare\DocuWareServiceProvider" --tag="docuware-config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

<?php
