A friend asked for the links that are used in case they can be put in to receipt template. this is what i dug out of contact dashboard
not sure how useful this is but wanted to paste it somewhere other than skype ;-)
WordPress 4.7.3 | CiviCRM 4.7.22 | iATS Payments 1.6.0
Providing a link to update / cancel a recurring donation should be included in the receipt, and it is. Sort of. From the iATS Payments 1.6.0 release notes:
"Cancel/modify URL receipt links are wrong. This affects recurring contributions. You can manually edit the message template to fix this."
While debugging using the Send Receipts workflow from a contribution search, it was discovered the URLs in these links are built correctly. When sent automatically from the creation of a contribution, the links point to iATS website, when sent from a contribution search they're. As such, I was able to get the URL scheme of how it should be built, see below.
