  1. Expose which user connected the organization via OAuth

    Currently, we have no idea which user connected via OAuth. In other platforms (QB for once), you get details (especially email) of the user, and can design behavior based on it. In Xero, we get all the data on the users (with the new email address field), but we don't which user connected. If this will be exposed, it will give the developers more tools to create a more specific experience for the users

  2. Single Sign on provider

    Allow users to sign into 3rd party applications using Xero as a single sign on provider (probably through OpenID).

  3. 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.

  4. API improvements for mobile devices

    At the moment, the Xero API authentication model does not support authentication and connection via mobile devices in a practical way - the only option is the public application type giving 30mins of access.

    While changes are not currently planned, please add your vote and use case here if you would like to be able to connect directly to the Xero API from a mobile application.

  5. include an Id unique to the oAuth'enticated user

    That will allow consumer apps to differentiate services based on the authenticated user (e.g. ACLs with app specific permissions).

  6. 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!

  7. Support TLS 1.2 on API connections

    Xero has a good SSL configuration on the main app (A+ on SSL labs) but the api endpoint running older and weaker encyrption.

    It appears to have some kind of TLS 1.2 support enabled but it drops after the initial hand shake which means that TLS 1.2 needs to be excluded as an option when negotitaing connections. Annoying having to set this up only for Xero.
