  1. Support Oauth2 'Client Credentials Flow' for server apps.

    Major drawback of Xero Oauth2 is that the 'Client Credentials Flow' is not supported. This makes it impossible to implement server-side applications to interact with Xero because there is no user interaction at all. Lot of people have been complaining about this, and it's shocking that it is still not supported in May 2021!

  2. Notify via email when webhooks is disabled automatically

    The custom webhooks are disabled automatically if there was not a successful response from the destination for 24 hours. There is no notification when this has happened and to check this we need to go to the webhooks page and then manually enable it and re-send the ITR.
    There could be email notifications sent when the webhook is disabled.

  3. allow the BrandingTheme to default to the Contact Default when an invoice is created in the API

    If I set a default Branding Theme for a Contact in Xero, that selection is not honoured when I create an invoice in the API and don't include a BrandingThemeID

  5. Relation between Invoice and Repeating Invoice

    Be able to differentiate invoices created due to repeating invoices and stand alone invoices.

    I checked out the elements of Invoice (https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/invoices).
    I was not able to find a element which gives me this relation.

    I think , A new element having the 'Repeating Invoice Id' data would help me. Can this be included ?

  6. Allow Quote PDF Download via API

    It is great that the Quote API is now available, however it would also be great if we could have an endpoint to download the PDF of the quote just like we can for an invoice.

    For API integrations it allows single click download via the API without the user needing to go into Xero and manually download it.

  7. API History (log) for OAuth 2.0 apps.

    We used to get OAuth 1.0a app history on developer.xero.com/myapps but no longer for OAuth 2.0 apps. Can we have this back?

  8. Ability to change ExpectedPaymentDate on invoice within lock period

    The web UI allows us to change the expected date on an AUTHORISED invoice that is issued before the period lock date. The API however does not allow this, and fails with warning about editing invoice in lock period.

    Contacting Xero support, I got this message: "With the web interface, there is a script that limit fields that can or cannot edited when lock date is used. Unfortunately the API does not have that ability so currently it is all or nothing. So to edit the invoice, the lock date has to be removed first. We don't have any immediate…

  9. Add ACN to the Contacts API Response

    When using the AU Xero there is a field for ACN which is great.... except that it's not in the API Response for contacts. If that could be added it would be awesome. Thank you

  10. allow Contractor invoices coded to 321 CIS Labour Expense to post via API

    CIS API.

    Recently started using simPRO enterprise where Contractor invoices are raised against specific jobs and exported into xero.
    These Contractors are subject to CIS Tax Liability and therefore line items should be coded to 321. unfortunately Xero currently does not allow for Contractor invoices using 321 to be imported through API.

  13. Recent Projects Feature

    We recently noticed the new Projects feature of Xero.

    While the information on the website is only cursory, it looks like it could be the solution to something we want to model: an entity against which we want to accrue expenses, and then invoice flexibly (the budgeting aspect is also a big drawcard).

    Is there any gossip on when it will be accessible via the API? We'd put our hands up to beta test it.
    Ideally we'd like the ability (via the API) to:
    - create projects
    - add expenses against a project
    - generate invoices for projects
    - query…

  15. Add Reference field to BankTransfer end point

    It would be very useful to be able to add a reference field to Bank Transfers. We are using the API to create many Bank Transfer transactions and many of them have the same date and dollar amount, making them nearly impossible to reconcile. Simply exposing the reference field would solve this issue.

  17. Show AccountID in LineItem in Invoices API

    Include AccountID in LineItem in Invoices API.

    Currently only AccountCode is shown in LineItems. Absence of AccountID renders cached invoices invalid when account's code is changed. Moreover, there is no guaranteed method to determine whether cached invoice became invalid.

    After modification of account code certain cached invoices may have outdated account codes pointing to non-existent accounts. Or, what a horror, to different existing accounts, if previously-used account code was recycled. The latter is horrifying because if cached invoice points to non-existent account one may simply refetch the invoice, but if account code was recycled, there is no way to figure…

    completed  ·  Public API PM responded

    Bulk Connections has now been released to allow users to connect multiple organisations in one authorisation flow. It is available to all certified apps. See the App partner features page for more info

  20. Provide an API to revoke the Add-on Authentication

    It would be good to be able to permanently remove the add-on authentication access from the Xero ledger to clean things up when a user deletes an account.
