  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Reconciliation search box to allow multiple search words separated by commas

    Many people want the bank reconciliation api feature but since Xero wont do that, here are 2 ideas for helping some people reconcile invoices

    1. Allow multiple search words in the search box
      We have clients who pay 50+ invoices all in one batch. They give us a statement in pdf and csv but we have no way to enter that into the xero search except for 1 at a time. Allow us to make a list of invoice ids as a comma separated string and copy paste that into the search box

    2. Next to the search box, add an upload…

  15. Chart of accounts via API - bank accounts

    As the Organisation creation wizard limits the import of Chart of Accounts to 1000 when they exceed this they need to be imported via the API. Causing additional pain to transfer the bank balance from the chart of account type pushed in via the API to a newly created chart of account to connect the bank feed to.

    The constraints on the API is that the Credit cards and Paypal account types can only be created as type Bank Account type. This means that the client is unable to connect the correct Bank feed as the Account Type is incorrect.

  17. Show TrackingOptionID in LineItem in Invoices API (and other endpoints)

    The Invoices endpoint in particular (and many others in general), do not include the TrackingOptionID in the data set. Instead, they generally provide only the Name, Option and TrackingCategoryID.

    It is really important for being able to use "joins" on the data to incl;ude the TrackingOptionID .

  19. Update Prepayments and Overpayments via API

    We can currently create Prepayment Invoices using the Bank Transaction endpoint (all of this also post applies to Overpayment Invoices too). This returns a list of information about the created bank transactions including Prepayment (or Overpayment) IDs.

    The Invoice Number is autogenerated by Xero, and we're only able to change it using the UI.

    There are are Prepayment and Overpayment endpoints in the API, but these only allow us to GET one (or multiple) invoices, and PUT allocations for an invoice.

    It would be great to see either:

    1. A POST method on the Prepayment and Overpayment endpoints (this would allow…

  20. allow filtering in reports at the group level

    A U.S. nonprofit's statement of activities groups expenses by activity, not by account. It would be helpful to be able to add an account to a blank report more than once so the account can appear under different groups, and to be able to apply a filter to each group by one or more tracking categories. This would allow us to create a report using the Blank Report template that mimics the statement of activities.
