  1. Add batch support to the Assets API

    CURRENTLY

    The Assets API only allows POST requests of one Asset at a time.

    ISSUE

    If you need to create a lot of assets, that's a lot of POST requests.

    SOLUTION

    Support batch POST requests e.g. Payload = { Assets: [ ...assets ] }

  3. Include Contact field in Journal Report API

    When running the Journal Report API, Contact should be included in the resulting fields. We want to be able to see contacts by Account for our planning system.

  4. Enable Bank feeds to public

    Allow bank feed to be retrieved via Xero API. All I want to do is allow my staff to see what payments have been received in the last day so they can release equipment. Very basic. But I go through paying the subscription and setting up the whole thing just to find that obvious and needed option is not available?? If I try to setup an API with the NAB thats going to be a nightmare. Its all there in Xero - if we log in we can see it. So why not allow access with an API?

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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
    ```

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Update Xero Projects API endpoint to Include estimated costs

    The Xero Projects API / Projects endpoint include an estimate field that provides the estimated revenue.

    It would be good to add an additional estimateCosts field to provide the estimated cost so as to be able to calculate margin for a given project.

  17. Add Expenses endpoint to the Projects API

    The Projects module of Xero allows you to capture expenses. However, this data cannot be retrieved from any endpoint.

    It would be good if an Expenses endpoint was added to provide the list of expenses add to projects (including estimate cost and revenue information).

  18. Ability to update Practice Manager time sheet entry "Billable" field

    The Practice Manager API allows the editing of most time sheet entry fields via the Time PUT Update endpoint:

    https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/practice-manager-3-1/time/#put-update

    However, for some reason it doesn't currently allow toggling the Billable field.

    It would be really useful to allow editing of this field along with the ability to edit the rest of the time sheet entry fields.

  19. Ability to create Practice Manager invoices

    It's possible to get details of Practice Manager invoices using the Invoices API endpoints:

    https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/practice-manager-3-1/invoices

    However, it's not possible to create or update invoices using the API. It seems to be possible to create and update most other objects using the API so why not invoices?

    This functionality would be very useful as invoices are a fundamental part of the system.

  20. Allow booking of time entries on Jobs I am not assigned through in the API for XPM

    In XPM you can create a time entry for a Job you are not assigned to. However this is not possible if we are making the time entry through the API.

    The API should offer that possibility as it is the same as in the browser.

    The API is not allowed to reproduce the same behaviour as in the the portal which is a bug.
