Proposal - Create a custom endpoint only for &quot;Demo Accounts&quot; that will flush every bit of data. It&#39;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&#39;s. Please vote this up.</p> az tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/21786229 2015-03-29T06:07:11+11:00 2015-03-29T06:07:11+11:00 Allow the Demo Company to be reset without data - like a trial account [updated] <p>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.</p><p>az said:<br /><div class="typeset"><p>Not only should there be a way to reset data, there should be a dedicated endpoint so all data can be flushed before running tests.</p> <p>Without this ability, running integration tests are very difficult. We are having to build our of flushing data, and a lot of the stuff cannot be deleted so it&#39;s very difficult to work around.</p> <p>I feel like this is such a key piece to building solid systems on top of Xero, I&#39;m surprised this doesn&#39;t have more demand.</p> <p>Please add some votes.</p></div></p> az tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/21733247 2015-03-27T08:50:13+11:00 2015-03-27T08:50:13+11:00 Allow to submit inventory items names [is now started] <p>Currently it&#39;s not possible to set an Item Name via Xero API.

On other endpoints this issue is alleviated with the option of Paging, which when used returns all elements. At present we are forced to GET a list of list of all Credit Notes that have been modified since the last GET and then loop through each Credit Note making an API call for each individual Credit Note just so that we can get the LineItems. The issue with this is that we are often exceeding the 60 second rate limit. If Paging was enabled on the Credit Note endpoint this would be alleviated.</p> David Masters tag:xero.uservoice.com,2008-02-07:Event/21511257 2015-03-19T18:39:36+11:00 2015-03-19T18:39:36+11:00 Expose the Online invoicing URL via the Xero API [updated] <p>Xero has recently released online invoicing functionality within the main application (http://help.xero.com/#OnlineInvoices).
