I am trying to make a simple API call to get some information on an Order. The reason I am trying with SOAP is because a similar API request is returning empty values for some sales attributes so I am trying to see if I get a different result using SOAP but I keep getting

Fatal error: Call to a member function salesOrderInfo() on a non-object in

I've followed the information on the Magento WIKI


But I keep getting this error, I've placed this file in the root of my Magento installation:



    $proxy = new SoapClient('http://www.mydomain.com/index.php/api/v2_soap?wsdl=1');

    $session = $proxy->login('user', 'password'); // connect to the API

    $result = $client->salesOrderInfo($session, '100000064');
  • Just making sure. You did set up an api user/role correct? – Steven Lynn Aug 13 '14 at 19:32
  • @StevenLynn Yes My API User And Role is setup but I keep getting this error... – user1704524 Aug 13 '14 at 19:34

Simple error. You are using the wrong variable in SalesOrderInfo.

Your current code

Notice: That you set the session Id to $session, but then use $sessionId in salesOrderInfo.


$proxy = new SoapClient('http://www.mydomain.com/index.php/api/v2_soap?wsdl=1');

$session = $proxy->login('user', 'password'); // connect to the API

$result = $client->salesOrderInfo($sessionId, '100000064');

Edit: Another error. $client should be $proxy

Try the following code. This worked for me! Just add your url, and api username and password.


 $proxy = new SoapClient('http://www.mydomain.com/api/v2_soap/?wsdl'); 

 $session = $proxy->login('user', 'password'); 

 $result = $proxy->salesOrderInfo($session, '100000064');

  • Thanks for your reply, I wish it were that simple :D I've been trying for hours... I'm thinking that I may need to add an include into the file to get access to the salesOrderInfo method or summick – user1704524 Aug 13 '14 at 19:49
  • Did you try that code? – Steven Lynn Aug 13 '14 at 19:49

    There is no include you have to add to the file. – Steven Lynn Aug 13 '14 at 19:51

    Just to clarify you used the bottom section? I am having a hard to believing it didn't work. Do you have soap installed on your server? – Steven Lynn Aug 13 '14 at 19:54

    I updated my code once more. Try it and let me know if it works. – Steven Lynn Aug 13 '14 at 21:27
