  1. CIS Fields on Contact via API

    There is currently no way to set or retrieve CIS fields via the api with the exception of:
    - CIS Enabled (GET ONLY)
    - CIS Value (GET ONLY)

    This request is to be able to GET POST AND PUT all contact CIS fields via the API including:
    - CIS Enabled
    - Registered CIS Name
    - CIS Rate
    - Organisation Type
    - Unique Taxpayer Reference
    - Subcontractor Verification Number
    - National Insurance Number
    - Customer Registration Number

    NOTE: Although Customer Registration Number is not under the CIS section, it IS mandatory if CIS Type is set to Limited Company so this…

  2. Overpayments and Prepayments API

    The "Paid from/into" field that is used to store the bank's name is not exposed in the Prepayment/Overpayment endpoints at this time.

    Because of which I'm not able to fetch the 'Paid from' for Prepayments and 'Paid into' for Overpayment in API response.

    If we will be able to fetch the "Paid from/into" field, then it will make our payments process quite easy because I'm working in Odoo and need to sync the overpayments and prepayments.

  6. Quotes with lineAmountTypes=inclusive returning wrong unitAmount

    Unlike invoices, if lineAmountTypes='INCLUSIVE', quotes return the items with unitAmount having the tax deducted.
    Example (invoice):
    1. Invoice created with lineAmountTypes=Inclusive with 1 item with unitAmount=100, quantity=1.
    2. GET invoice returns the invoice with the item. unitAmount field is correctly showing 100

    Example (quote):
    1. A Quote is created with lineAmountTypes=INCLUSIVE with 1 item of unitAmount=100, quantity=1.
    2. GET quote returns the quote with the item's unitAmount=86.96 (86.96+15% GST = 100) which is wrong.

  7. Xero Projects API - bill line items

    Note - you need a projects API section now it has been released.

    To enable full use of OCR apps with Projects there needs to be the ability to post bill line items to projects as expenses. Without this functionality any business that wants to automate their billing and approval process cannot use Xero projects (without manual intervention in Xero).

    As an exmaple - I currently have a client looking to do this with 50 active staff. This would be £250pm or £3,000pa potential Xero fees lost as they would use a different app that does both.

  9. Line Items in Xero should be populate with default values of Item Inventory

    When a line item is added to Xero invoice - it currently do not created with default values. It doesn't make sense to not default to Item Inventory defined in Xero.

    If this is a breaking change and break for other customer then a new field which will let us populate line items using default values.

    If not, we will need to sync Item inventory in our end before creating any invoices via API.

  11. Assign Linked Transactions to Projects via the API

    Using Projects would be a great solution for my company, but without the ability to assign billable expenses to Projects via the API, they are not useful to us.

  12. Please provide an API to get Login History

    Hi Team,
    Can you please provide an API to get Login History of all users.

    The data is already available in Xero's Dashboard but there is no API associated for the same.

    It will help us to track our users in more better way.

  14. Send Purchase Order Email to Suppliers via API

  15. Allow Paging for Journals GET

    Please consider adding Paging for the Journals GET.

    Journals represent a considerable size of data when extracting for e.g. a full financial year.

    Alternative solution could be filtering options.
    It would be beneficial to be able to either FILTER for a range of data or PAGE the data (for timely returns from the web service).

    The modified-since and offset options only allow for smaller, recent datasets, not for smaller ranges of data from for e.g. the previous year.

    Eg.
    Extract Journals for April 2015.

  16. Provide Service account for machine to machine authentication

    Provide Service account for machine to machine authentication

    For process to run via machine to machine so user interaction is not required. Saving of token or refresh token is not required, prevent hacking due to unsecure tokens.

    Similar to Google using OAuth 2.0 for Server to Server Applications
    https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/oauth2/service-account

    For WorkFlowMax and Xero APIs

  17. Display the AR/AP contact balance in API in both base currency and contact currency

    Currently the API only displays the contact balance in base currency and NOT the contact default currency.

    This makes it extremely difficult to confirm synchronisation drift between our systems through the current balance.

    Please include two currencies in the AR/AP contact balance object.

  19. Auto invoice number and references

    If you leave the reference field blank on an ACCPAY invoice then the invoice number is automatically generated using the defaults INV-00381 etc. But if you give a reference 'August 2020 travel charges' and leave the invoice number blank then the API copies the reference and makes the invoice number 'August 2020 travel charges'. I want auto-generated invoice numbers but to be able to give an independent reference.

  20. Download PDF and Online URL for Overpayments through API

    Our customers pay money in advance for us to hold and later use to pay for different services.
    Their reason is they have a budget allocation at the beginning of every month which they later use for a varied services with us.
    We can only keep the money as Overpayments as this has no tax impact.
    Customers need however a receipt in advance, to use before their finance department to actually make the payment.
    We need this functionality in the API to avoid messy manual work in parallel to Xero.
