  2. Get, Post and Delete project Expenses

    Currently, project endpoints are only available for projects, tasks and time. Unfortunately, expense for projects aren't available. Projects are an important feature for many businesses including construction and I've had numerous clients request this. This information can only be pulled via a detailed project report but the layout and format are very limited. So if the client would like to integrate the data to a CRM or format it a particular way they aren't able to.

  3. Search for a purchase order number using the API which includes a forward slash

    We are creating purchase orders in Xero which have a purchase order in the format of: 'ABCDE/123'. These are coming from DataBuild. When using the PurchaseOrders API endpoint, we are unable to search for purchase orders due to the forward slash character. Have tried using various escape characters in the API call, but it does not work. The Xero API Explorer also fails when running the same call against the PurchaseOrders endpoint, yet the purchase order exists in Xero. We would like to be able to search for purchase orders using escape characters.

  4. Reconciliation API

    It is very important to add an API that would allow us to pull the reconciliation data in order to connect it to our customized platform where we can add more AI logic which will make reconciliation much faster and easier.
    We can pull all bills and invoices, and it would be great if we can integrate the reconciliation of Xero in order. this way our developers can implement the logic that works for our business

  6. Provide superannuation payment data through the API

    Provide superannuation payments data through an API - to represent what is available in the superannuation payments report currently.

    This would also need an employee Id - currently only shows the employee name.

  8. create new endpoint for "Copy to Bill"

    there's an article for "Creating Bills from Purchase Orders" (https://central.xero.com/s/article/Creating-bills-from-purchase-orders), however I can't find endpoint for this action in accounting API (https://xeroapi.github.io/xero-node/accounting/index.html#api-Accounting).

    Update the status using updatePurchaseOrder (https://xeroapi.github.io/xero-node/accounting/index.html#api-Accounting-updatePurchaseOrder) won't let user create a bill in xero by default.

    Fyi, this is my case detail : (https://central.xero.com/s/case?caseId=5003m00001DLY6B)

    Thanks

  12. Expose the new Expense feature via the API

    Xero previously had an Expense Claims public API available (https://api.xero.com/api.xro/2.0/ExpenseClaims)

    However since 2018, a new Xero Expense product has replaced Expense Claims and any new organisation is forced on the new expense product. This new expense product currently has no available API.

    This is a regression as the previous API allowed developers to build integration with the Xero's expense features, however it is now not possible anymore.

    There is an existing trello card for this feature however I do not understand why it is still in the "nice to have" column although the number of votes is higher…

  13. Query exchange rate through the API

    The exchange rates are automatically calculated in Xero and not available for query. I want to use the same exchange rates in a third-party software (otherwise the reported money amounts will not match), so I need a way to query the exchange rates that were valid on a certain invoice date.

  15. Allow querying the MFA state for users via the API

    It's great that xero supports MFA and I would like to query which users have MFA enabled (or more importantly which don't) and import into our SOC so we can ensure that all accounts are protected.

    Given how big a target a finance platform like Xero is for business email compromise and phishing scenarios and how critical MFA is in preventing these attacks - being able to collect this information and easily catch unprotected accounts is very useful.

  16. 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.

  17. Offer the Account Transactions report as an ODBC table

    I would like to be able to select a table in the ODBC connection that is the same as the Account Transactions report. This allows me to create financial statements and analysis based upon the full 'general ledger' of a company's transactions data set.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
