As with every method we need to pass in credentials. We do this with the LookupUser request object.

We will assume you have a web reference, let us name it SWS, in your Visual Studio project. At this point we need to define our objects.  We will need the standard service object, a WalkThruList request object, and a WalkThruList response object. We can define and create those like this:

// Create a request and response objects
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.WalkThruList_Request request = new SWS.WalkThruList_Request();
SWS.WalkThruList_Response response;

Here is a sample code of the request object:

// WalkThruList Request
request.SiteID = 123546;

Finally we can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to retrieve our requested information. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
  response = service.WalkThruList(user_request, request);
catch (Exception ex)

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You will want to capture the message in the exception so it can be debugged.

For a full list of methods see SWS Methods.

    Updated June 13, 2016: For the following three methods, RentalActivity, WalkThruList, and MiniKeyStats, we have adjusted the permissions required to get access. For these methods only, for Active users, Yardi will now verify site access in addition to the org access check. This will Not impact Services Only users. This change is meant for Store application users that are accessing these methods for report data through our iPhone application.
