The Onfleet PHP library provides convenient access to the Onfleet API.


composer require onfleet/php-onfleet


The Onfleet PHP library requires bcmath extension to be installed.


Before using the API wrapper, you will need to obtain an API key from one of your organization's admins.

Creation and integration of API keys are performed through the Onfleet dashboard.

To start utilizing the library, you simply need to create an Onfleet object with your API key:

$onfleet = new Onfleet("<your_api_key>");

Optionally, you can introduce a customized timeout that is less than the default Onfleet API timeout (70,000 ms) by providing a 2nd parameter:

$onfleet = new Onfleet("<your_api_key>", 30000);


Once the Onfleet object is created, you can test on the authentication endpoint:

$onfleet->verifyKey();  // Returns a boolean


Rate limiting is enforced by the API with a threshold of 20 requests per second across all your organization's API keys. Learn more about it here.

We have also implemented a limiter on this library to avoid you from unintentionally exceeding your rate limitations and eventually be banned for.

Supported CRUD Operations

Here are the operations available for each entity:

Admins/Administrators get() create(obj), matchMetadata(obj) update(id, obj) deleteOne(id)
Containers get(id, 'workers'), get(id, 'teams'), get(id, 'organizations') x update(id, obj) x
Destinations get(id) create(obj), matchMetadata(obj) x x
Hubs get() create(obj) update(id, obj) x
Organization get(), get(id) x insertTask(id, obj) x
Recipients get(id), get(name, 'name'), get(phone, 'phone') create(obj), matchMetadata(obj) update(id, obj) x
Tasks get(query), get(id), get(shortId, 'shortId') create(obj), clone(id), forceComplete(id), batch(obj), autoAssign(obj), matchMetadata(obj) update(id, obj) deleteOne(id)
Teams get(), get(id), getWorkerEta(id, obj) create(obj), autoDispatch(id, obj) update(id, obj), insertTask(id, obj) deleteOne(id)
Webhooks get() create(obj) x deleteOne(id)
Workers get(), get(query), get(id), getByLocation(obj), getSchedule(id) create(obj), setSchedule(id, obj), matchMetadata(obj) update(id, obj), insertTask(id, obj) deleteOne(id)

GET Requests

To get all the documents within an endpoint, this returns an array of results:

Examples of get()

Optionally you can send an array of query params for some certain endpoints. Refer back to API documentation for endpoints that support query parameters.

$onfleet->workers->get([ "phones" => "<phone_number>" ]);

$onfleet->tasks->get([ "from" => "<from_time>", "to" => "<to_time>" ]);

To get one of the documents within an endpoint, if the optional paramName is not provided, the library will search by ID. If paramName is provided, it will search by paramName:

get(<parameter>, <paramName> (optional), <queryParam> (optional));

paramName can be any of:

  • id
  • name
  • phone
  • shortId
Examples of get(param)
$onfleet->workers->get("<24_digit_ID>", [ "analytics" => true ]);

$onfleet->tasks->get("<shortId>", "shortId");

$onfleet->recipients->get("<phone_number>", "phone");
$onfleet->recipients->get("<recipient_name>", "name");
$onfleet->recipients->get("<recipient_name>", "name", [ "skipPhoneNumberValidation" => true ]);

$onfleet->containers->get("<24_digit_ID>", "workers");
$onfleet->containers->get("<24_digit_ID>", "teams");
$onfleet->containers->get("<24_digit_ID>", "organizations");

To get a driver by location, use the getByLocation function:

Examples of getByLocation
$locationParams = [
  "longitude" => -122.404,
  "latitude" => 37.789,
  "radius" => 10000,


POST Requests

To create a document within an endpoint:

Examples of create()
$data = [
  "name" => "John Driver",
  "phone" => "+16173428853",
  "teams" => ["<team_ID>", "<team_ID> (optional)", ...],
  "vehicle" => [
    "type" => "CAR",
    "description" => "Tesla Model 3",
    "licensePlate" => "FKNS9A",
    "color" => "purple",


Extended POST requests include clone, forceComplete, batchCreate, autoAssign on the Tasks endpoint; setSchedule on the Workers endpoint; autoDispatch on the Teams endpoint; and matchMetadata on all supported entities. For instance:

$onfleet->tasks->forceComplete('<24_digit_ID>', $data);

$onfleet->workers->setSchedule('<24_digit_ID>', $data);

$onfleet->teams->autoDispatch('<24_digit_ID>', $data);


For more details, check our documentation on clone, forceComplete, batchCreate, autoAssign, setSchedule, matchMetadata, and autoDispatch.

PUT Requests

To update a document within an endpoint:

update("<24_digit_ID>", $data);
Examples of update()
$newData = [
  "name" => "Jack Driver",

$onfleet->workers->update("<24_digit_ID>", $newData);
Examples of insertTask()
$onfleet->workers->insertTask("<24_digit_ID>", $data);

DELETE Requests

To delete a document within an endpoint:

Examples of deleteOne()

Examples of utilizing your CRUD operations

  • Get all the recipients:
    try {
      $tasks = $onfleet->tasks->get([ "from" =>"1557936000000", "to" => "1558022400000" ]);
      foreach ($tasks['tasks'] as $task) {
        if (is_set($task['recipients'][0])) {
          // Do something with the recipients
    } catch (Exception $error) {
      // Do something with the error

Things NOT to do

  • Inefficient pattern, use metadata instead:

    // DONT
    try {
      $workers = $onfleet->workers.get();
      for ($workers as $worker) {
        foreach ($worker['metadata'] as $metadataEntry) {
          if ($metadataEntry['name'] === "hasFreezer" && $metadataEntry['value']) {
            // Do something
    } catch (Exception $error) {
      // Do something with the error
    // DO
    try {
      $workers = $onfleet->workers->matchMetadata([["name" => "hasFreezer", "type" => "boolean", "value" => true]]);
      for ($workers as $worker) {
        // Do something
    } catch (Exception $error) {
      // Do something with the error
