  2. invoke receipt sending via API

    The sending of receipts is fine for one off... but when there are many, it becomes tedious. Could it possibly be enabled to be invoked from the API, so that a whole lot could be sent automatically?

  3. Get Xero Projects Report using API

    Hi,
    We can get and customize Xero projects reports by using API. But unfortunately, Xero reports API for projects is not available. Can you please add this API to your system.
    Thanks

  4. ... make transaction data available via the API

    It appears that there are two key things missing from the current version of the Xero API:

    The Tables part of the API does not currently have a connection to the Nominal Ledger (Account) Transactions

    The Reports part of the API connects to several of the standard reports, but doesn’t connect to the Account Transactions report.

    Either of these would allow a full list of transactions to be accessed via the API.

  6. Include ContactNumber in the response for GET CreditNotes

    GET CreditNotes has the InvoiceNumber field but not the ContactNumber field. It would be quite nice to have both.

  8. Make the journal narration visible to the API

    Would like to be able to access the journal narration through the API. Currently you can just access the line item reference but this requires too much coding effort by our bookkeeper and as such most reference lines are blank. However, every journal/transaction has a narration so would be great to access this.

  9. Tracking Summary Report with Account Groups and Tracking Categories

    Xero is awesome for Financial data management and manipulations. Its API providing the extra strength to Xero for integrating Xero with other webapps. Of course Most of the APIs are in still Xero Development Phase, But we need an extensive API for getting the reports(at minimum Tracking Summary Report) to make the use of tracking summary data inside webapps.

  11. Be able to change the ReportingCode on an Account

    It is currently not possible to update the ReportingCode and ReportingCodeName on an Account via the API.

    We would find it useful to correct discrepancies in the assigned reporting codes automatically via the API

  12. Support BankTransaction.reference on GET request

    According to BankTransaction documentation found at https://developer.xero.com/documentation/api/banktransactions
    Reference is currently supported on Receive and Spend transactions.


    Reference Reference for the transaction. Only supported for SPEND and RECEIVE transactions.

    Is there a reason why this is not supported?

    When I create a BankTransaction through either Xero UI or API, reference is stored and shown on UI; however, it is not available through BankTransaction API.

  13. Grant Read-Only API access please

    For some integrations we want to only ever read from Xero. One great example is when we replicate a production Xero system into a test system. In those cases we NEVER want to write to production. Other cases are where clients only want data extracted from Xero.

    This seems a simple ask - just disallow PUT, POST, and DELETE, and allow only GET.

    Cheers,
    Daniel

  15. 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…

  17. Provide Service account for machine to machine authentication

    Provide Service account for machine to machine authentication

    For process to run via machine to machine so user interaction is not required. Saving of token or refresh token is not required, prevent hacking due to unsecure tokens.

    Similar to Google using OAuth 2.0 for Server to Server Applications
    https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/oauth2/service-account

    For WorkFlowMax and Xero APIs

  18. Display the AR/AP contact balance in API in both base currency and contact currency

    Currently the API only displays the contact balance in base currency and NOT the contact default currency.

    This makes it extremely difficult to confirm synchronisation drift between our systems through the current balance.

    Please include two currencies in the AR/AP contact balance object.

  20. Overpayments and Prepayments API

    The "Paid from/into" field that is used to store the bank's name is not exposed in the Prepayment/Overpayment endpoints at this time.

    Because of which I'm not able to fetch the 'Paid from' for Prepayments and 'Paid into' for Overpayment in API response.

    If we will be able to fetch the "Paid from/into" field, then it will make our payments process quite easy because I'm working in Odoo and need to sync the overpayments and prepayments.
