  2. Udpate Projects API Endpoint to deliver Contact Name as it does in the internal endpoint.

    The Internal Endpoint used on the website delivers more fields than the endpoint in the API.
    Internal Endpoint: https://go.xero.com/api/projects/projects?status=INPROGRESS

    API Endpoint: https://api.xero.com/projects.xro/2.0/projects?status=INPROGRESS

    While the internal Endpoint delivers the contactName, the external endpoint does only provide the contactId. To fetch the Contact name a user needs to get access to the whole accounting module which is nonsense. The contactName should also be delivered where the id is delivered.

  3. Allow Prepayment Attachments to be Uploaded via the API

    It's currently not possible to add Attachments to a Prepayment via the API.

    It'd be nice if we could access this at "https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/Prepayments/{Guid}/Attachments/{Filename}" to bring the functionality in line with the GUI.

    We currently have access to: Invoices, Receipts, Credit Notes, Repeating Invoices, Bank Transactions, Bank Transfers, Contacts, Accounts, Manual Journals, Purchase Orders, Quotes (https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/accounting/attachments).

    Seems like the standard and infrastructure is already there, it would be nice to have this one soon, thanks!

  4. Enhance API to include Invoice Created By information

    Created by is an important audit field and minimally allows the broader organization to know who to go to for questions...E.g. Think PM getting Invoice questions from customers and then needs to speak with whomever created the invoice to review.

    Additionally, this impacts many 3rd party integration tools such as Breadwinner that aim to surface Xero data into other systems. The better enabled integration partners are, the more successful Xero will be in growing with customers and entering larger companies.

    Enhancement / Use Case:
    Enable API to be able to include the name of the person creating an invoice via…

  5. Align front-end and api behaviour to list Customers

    Following changes to the front-end of Xero there is now a difference between that and the api when selecting a list of Customers.

    Original Behaviour - shown on the API:
    All contacts start off as neither customer nor supplier. Once an invoice, bill or credit note is raised the isSupplier or isCustomer field is updated accordingly. The contact retains this status.

    New front-end behaviour:
    We look to see if any invoices or bills have been raised and categorise the contact accordingly.

    We have a client who has an Accounts Receivable Credit Note posted to it so appears as a Customer…

  6. Support payment of non-base-currency bill from non-base-currency account

    Currently you can only create a payment for bill if

    1. the bill or the bank account is the same as the organisation base currency, or
    2. the bill and the bank account is the same currency.

    Please add support for the case where the bill and bank account have different currencies, neither of which is the organisation base currency.

    I get the following validation error through the API when attempting this:
    "The invoice, payment and organisation base currencies are all different. Xero cannot currently handle a 3-currency transaction."

  7. Posting Bank Transaction attachments should produce helpful error for DELETED transactions

    Right now it results in an opaque 500 error, which required me to reach to support.

    For example:
    ```
    POST https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/BankTransactions/<transaction>/Attachments/kitten.png
    Accept: text/xml
    Content-Type: image/png
    Authorization: Bearer ...
    xero-tenant-id: <..>

    < /kitten.png
    ```

  8. Need client code extra field in organization API call

    I am reaching out for assistance regarding a client code-related query. Could you please guide us on where to capture this information from the response? If the client code is not provided in the Xero GET Organisation API response, could you also advise on the appropriate steps to request the Xero team to add this property to our response? Your assistance in providing information on the client code is greatly appreciated.

  9. Get list of attachment details by array of invoice IDs

    Currently to get an invoice attachment you need to make a call to the attachment endpiont for a specific entity id, then you need to make a call to the download end point for each found attachment.

    We need an efficient way to be notified of weather there is an attachment or not, othewise we will quickly hit our api quote just looking up attachments on invoices.

    Would be great if we could request all attachment details objects for an array of invoices to reduce the number of calls we need to make in order to find attachment details for…

  10. Adding first attachment or removing last attachment to an invoice should trigger the invoice webhook

    Currently if you add an attachment to the invoice where none existed before, the invoice webhook is not fired, even though invoice.hasAttachments is changed to be true.

    Same for if you remove the last attachment on an invoice, this should trigger the invoice webhook as the hasAttachments is now false.

    Currently to get an invoice attachment you need to make a call to the attachment endpiont for a specific entity id, then you need to make a call to the download end point for each found attachment.

  12. Provide the OpenDate and ClosedDate in the Projects endpoint

    The Projects endpoint of the Xero Projects API does not include the OpenDate and ClosedDate as fields.

    These are useful for users to report with and should be included.

  13. Pay Items API - allow access to the 'Display Name' field

    It would be great to be able to read the Display Name of the Pay Item.
    Also to be able to set the Display Name when creating a new Pay Item.

  14. Include the AccountID field for PurchaseOrders and Quotes

    Quotes and PurchaseOrders are the only endpoints remaining where the lines do not include the AccountID.

    For consistency, it would pay to include these fields.

    Hopefuly, this is a simple request since AccountID was added to CreditNotes, Invoices and RepeatingInvoices recently.

  18. Be able to get receipts pdf through API

    Now the receipt is downloadable in the transaction:payment. However it would also be great if the receipt downloadable through API without the need of user to go in the xero account and download it.

  19. Include content-disposition header in response on GET Files/{FileId}/Content

    When downloading files via the GET Files/{FileId}/Content, there is no way to know the filename without first getting the details of the file via
    GET Files/{FileId}/

    This means 2 calls must be made when downloading files.

    As a suggestion, to reduce pressure on the servers, the Xero API should include the content-disposition and content-type headers on GET Files/{FileId}/Content

    This would be similar how we need to include those fields on POST.

    This means we could simply parse these headers to find out the file name, reducing pressure on the xero api servers.
