  1. ... make transaction data available via the API

    It appears that there are two key things missing from the current version of the Xero API:

    The Tables part of the API does not currently have a connection to the Nominal Ledger (Account) Transactions

    The Reports part of the API connects to several of the standard reports, but doesn’t connect to the Account Transactions report.

    Either of these would allow a full list of transactions to be accessed via the API.

  2. longer SKU Number field

    Your system needs to support longer SKU's if you plan to continue working with the KATANA platform and Shopify they do not have a hard SKU limit and because of this we are unable to import a number of the orders we import from Shopify into Katana... and this requires us to do a work around to create a order/invoice in your system...

  3. Tracking CategoryID/OptionID parameters in Trial Balance endpoint.

    Adding in the tracking CategoryID and OptionID parameters to the trial balance endpoint would allow for easier & more detailed analysis across multiple tenants in client-specific use cases. The capability exists in the UI via the "new" Trial Balance, so there's a disconnect between the expected level of detail one can get from the UI vs. the API.

  5. Send pdf invoice when invoice send is triggered by the API

    We have been trying this endpoint
    POST https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/Invoices/aa682059-c8ec-44b9-bc7f-344c94e1ffae/Email

    It sends an email to the customer with a link to the invoice.

    Currently it is not possible to configure this so that it includes the pdf attachment. There is a check box option for this functionality if using the UI.

    I am just thinking of all those people that want their pdf invoices sent directly to their ReceiptBank accounts etc.

  7. Query webhook status via API

    After checking in with Xero support there I found there is there no way to poll the webhook status.

    It is important to us that the webhook remains "OK" and we have had situations where it has disconnected due to changes in our software that did not go noticed which has required manual reconnection.

    If we are able to query the webhook status then we can hook this up to our monitoring and react accordingly.

  9. Software Robots - Reconciling Bank Statement Lines

    Hi - I've been looking at reconciling via the API for a client and it seems that functionality hasn't been put into the API which is a shame.

    My client has found "software robots" which can do this via scripting. Kind of like taking Software Automation software and running it for production purposes.

    Products like these...
    https://growbydesign.kartra.com/page/roboworkforce
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjdLAqgwMKA

    I've got my own thoughts but I'd like to get an understanding what Xero's stance is with products like this and any pro's and cons....

    Many thanks for any and all input.

    Thanks
    Pat

  11. Add journal count to the Organisation endpoint.

    It would be useful to get a general idea of the size of a particular organisation. The journal count also serves as a maximum on the journal number field. Useful for displaying the percentage completed, if an API user is pulling the entire ledger.

  12. Modified date on product items should uodate when the on-hand quantity changes

    When you change something simple on a product item (say the description) then a request for modified since returns this item.

    But if the stock in-hand figure changes (because you've sent an invoice) then the modified date doesn't change and this item isn't returned in the atli query.

    So, in effect there is no easy to tell (via API using modified dates) when the stock on- hand has changed. You would have to load all items every ten minutes to know what the current in-hand stock is... And then you would get rate limiting issues.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Return linked Tenant ID in the auth response

    When a user has access to multiple Xero accounts it would be great to know the Tenant ID of the account they linked in the auth response.

  20. 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.
