As a developer I have to test against the Demo Company as it has no limits. Unfortunately it has pre-populated data that makes testing more difficult. It would be nice to reset the Demo Company with the default Chart of Accounts but no ledger entries and all account balances as 0 so we can follow changes easily after making API calls.65 votes
In order to build solid, tested systems, we need to run end-to-end tests on our apps.
Proposal - Create a custom endpoint only for "Demo Accounts" that will flush every bit of data.
It's easier to create data in xero than to delete it. This will allow a reset before integration tests are run. We can then seed new data and run tests as expected.
This will also allow projects with multiple developers to get their own test accounts setup and more easily match the rest of the team's.

We have recently created a dedicated Developer Experience team to upgrade many of the services around the API. This type of functionality is part of a wider Sandbox EPIC that the team will look at later in the year.
We will post updates as and when we have them.
in the .Net change the string options to enums that would be readable and faster in coding and very easy
you have a lot of string types like:
Account Status Codes 1-ACTIVE 2-ARCHIVED .
it will be very easy and readable and you don't need to remember all the codes if it was an ENUM please consider it. thanks in advance6 votes
The Application API History is very useful. I suggest extending the amount of data held in the Application History and make it searchable.
Allowing developers the ability to programatically access the GST type would allow us to create applications that allow accountants the ability to efficiently & automatically group entity types for easier reporting.4 votes
Would love to have a SoapUI project that has examples of calls of all the APIs. This should include the initial authorization steps. A huge benefit is this shows actual REST calls and is completely language independent. It would be a huge help for those of us getting started. It would also be very easy to update as the underlying API's change.4 votes
Hi Xero, In ten years time, wish new management will delegate a new project for their own benefits: implement "combinatorial search terms like google drive" in your global search function in Xero Practice Manager. Combinatorial search terms are like " Client first name , last name and ITR 2017" to instantly bring up search result showing "income tax returns 2017 for John Doe".
I wish your "Jobs" function in Xero Practice Manager allows attaching "attachments" to each job similar to Gmail for better workflow management.
Please share management to implement for your own benefits.4 votes
Support in XeroAPI.Net for VS 2012 App Store projects
Even though you can build App Store solutions with this XeroAPI.Net library and they run, they fail certification because the cryptography calls used are not part of the windows store API. A proper additional target platform build is required.4 votes
Grails is the Rails for Java developers. Making a Xero Plugin for Grails would open up a ton of new SaaS companies for you as customers who want to integrate their SaaS grails application billing right into Xero. Like me! :D3 votes
I want a windows executable that takes a csv file in a particular format and uploads it to Xero.
I can then simply configure third party software such as excel to simply execute the executable and upload an invoice.
I shouldnt have to goto the trouble of writing a heap of code to achieve this.2 votes
to have an "activity" button or tab, that shows in descending order all the activity you have done on Xero for the day (like a history tab),
Make it 'clickable' so you can go back to transactions that may need editing, or to remember how you handled a credit note etc. This would be great for people not that familiar with Xero.1 vote
I'd like to generate draft invoices for my subcontractors via xero, and let them review and submit the invoice.1 vote
