  1. Get the list of projects and invoices / bills lines attached

    Currently, it is not possible to get the list of invoices / bills lines attached to a project. Neither via a report nor via API.

    It's only possible to get the list of invoices for a particular project in the GUI and we are not even able to get an extract of that info.

    We are using other operational systems and need to use this info. Plus, we would like to point out all invoices where there is no project attached and this is currently impossible.

    That would be awesome if we could extract this via API.

    Thank you

  3. Include TotalDiscount on GET /invoices

    Please return the TotalDiscount when searching for multiple invoices.

    Xero, indeed, only returns the TotalDiscount when searching for ONE invoice, by its UUID or Invoice Number.

  4. Toggle Notifications via API

    Provide ability to turn off invoice reminder notifications for specific customers via the API.

  5. Allow Batch Payments API for Multiple Currencies

    The API guidelines state that you can only send a batch payment in the currency of your account. E.g. if your account is in GBP, then Batch Payments can only be in GBP, even if you have a multi-currency account like we do.

    We'd like to propose allowing Batch Payments if the transaction currency and the bank account currency are the same.

    E.g. You have a home currency of GBP, but you can create batch in USD, if the bank account is in USD, and the invoices being paid are also in USD.

    Just a suggestion.

  7. Reconciling an existing payment with an allocated invoice

    So, I have an invoice with its payment but it's set as unreconciled I'd like to update that payment and set it to reconciled but i get the error: "Message": "Payments against invoices or credit notes cannot be updated."
    Is there anyway i can reconcile this invoice and payment via API?

  9. allow for overpayments against a non bank account

    I would like to be able to post over-payments to a control account instead of to a bank account as all other regular payments can be done to control accounts.

    If you attempt to post an overpayment via the banktransactions endpoint to a non bank account , you get "the specified bank account details does not match a known bank account" error.

    However, it is possible to post an overpayment to a non bank account via the UI. It would be great if this could be replicated via the API

  13. Supplier Item Code

    We have just changed from SAASU and I was very surprised (and disappointed) that there are no supplier item codes in XERO items.

    It is common practice that companies are not able to use the same item code as the supplier for their own purposes.

    We would have thought that this would be common practice with accounting systems.

  14. Extend Bank Transfer transactions API so that all fields available through Xero's UI are also supported through API

    Currently only 4 fields are supported through the API for Bank Transfers transactions – Amount, From Bank Account, To Bank Account & Date.

    It would be great if the remaining fields that are available via Xero's UI could also be supported in the API:
    API - namely:
    - From Account: Accounts Export Branch
    - To Account: Accounts Export Branch
    - Reference
    - 2 Amount fields (if From & To bank accounts are in different - currencies).

  16. Reports API - Account Transactions drill down

    • need API endpoints for this so that we can customise and show full summary of an account as otherwise the API is very2 not helpful for customisation. Thanks XERO for great job to date but this issue has a lot of requests in the forum.

  17. CreditNotes: Add GET filter by CreditNoteNumbers Similar to Invoices functionality

    Invoices has a filter of InvoiceNumbers. But this functionality is missing from Credit Notes even though Credit Notes are basically a negitive invoice. We need to be able to query for the status and existence of Credit Notes but keep hitting our API rate limit. We are using an WHERE OR statement but it's slow and we cannot check more than a few credit notes at a time.

  18. Webhook payload update to decrease API calls

    We use Xero Invoice Webhook to create the electronic invoices needed to comply with Argentina tax laws.

    We have discovered some updates that could be made to the invoice webhook in order to dramatically decrease the API calls we send to Xero (to get the invoices details).I think this updates will also benefit the implementation of e-invoice in USA, AU and NZ.

    The two updates are very simple. Just add to the invoice webhook payload the following data:
    1 -invoice type (in order to avoid API call for bills)
    2- nvoice status (in order to avoid API calls for draft…

  20. Reconcile individual payments (NOT Bank Statement)

    We receive payments from online services (stripe and paypal) and programmatically add an invoice as well as a payment for the invoice and the fee from the charge.

    When the bank charge comes from the bank we go in and manually match them with the payments. With PayPal this is easy because they come in and match 1:1 with the payments and fees. With stripe it's not so easy becaue our daily payout contains dozens of fees and charges.

    We would like to programmatically match these. Note that this is NOT the same as reconciling a bank statement, I think…
