Fetch Data from Commcare HQ

Hi Commcare Community,

We have our own web application on which we were earlier manually entering
the data through a form.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-AH0-5jnMsdw/UfOHRVwtS0I/AAAAAAAAAQo/Rehx8e0v5Wo/s1600/data+entry+form.PNG

So currently our field staff go to households and collect the data in a
hard copy format. Then a data entry operator manually enters the data by
logging into our application. I lately came accross the commcare platform
and was amazed by the functionality it supports.

I also create a commcare account and uploaded the similar data entry form
onto a mobile device. Currently data entered on the mobile is coming on my
commcare account and i am able to download it into an excel file.

But what i need is that the data in the commcare account should get
automatically synced with our application so that we donot have to manually
enter the data. now our field worker will collect the data onto mobile,
that data will go to commcare and from there we want to sync our
application with it.

Is there any api’s availaible in the commcare for the same? If yes can you
please provide the documentation for the same and also guide us how to do
it…

Thanks&Regards

Hi Sunandan,

Thanks for the kind words. For integrating with external services we offer
both push and pull APIs. You can see a list of supported APIs here:
https://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/CommCare+HQ+APIs

For your use case, I would recommend looking at the form
listhttps://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/List+Forms,
case listhttps://wiki.commcarehq.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=12224287,
and data forwardinghttps://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/Enabling+Data+Integrationsections.

Hi Sunandan,

I am also looking for the solution for the problem that you caught a year
ago. Did you got any solution to this problem of importing data from
commcare server to your own application automatically (using some API) ?

If yes, could you please me guide on the same.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards
Ganesh

Hi Sunandan,

Yes you can also use the export API, though the other ones I mentioned are
more fully featured.

You may also want to look at
commcare-exporthttps://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/CommCare+Data+Export+Toolif
you are syncing straight to a database or excel.
