  2. 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.

  3. Add Disposal Date to fixed assets in the API!

    It would be really useful to have the date a disposal was registered in the API

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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
    ```

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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).

  11. Contact search should be case insensitive via API

    While creating the sales invoice via API, usually we check if the contact is already created or not, to search the contact the name/keyword must be used in the same case that is available on Xero, if its different then it will not search.

  12. Download PDF and Online URL for Overpayments through API

    Our customers pay money in advance for us to hold and later use to pay for different services.
    Their reason is they have a budget allocation at the beginning of every month which they later use for a varied services with us.
    We can only keep the money as Overpayments as this has no tax impact.
    Customers need however a receipt in advance, to use before their finance department to actually make the payment.
    We need this functionality in the API to avoid messy manual work in parallel to Xero.

  13. Enhance endpoints such as Invoices to allow filtering on LineItems sub fields

    For performance purposes and to keep the amount of data in transit down, it would be good to enhance the Invoices and other endpoints to allowing filtering on LineItems.

    For instanced, AccountCode, ItemCode or TrackingCategories.

    This will allow devs to query a smaller subset rather than pull all invoices.

  14. Include content-disposition header in response on GET Files/{FileId}/Content

    When downloading files via the GET Files/{FileId}/Content, there is no way to know the filename without first getting the details of the file via
    GET Files/{FileId}/

    This means 2 calls must be made when downloading files.

    As a suggestion, to reduce pressure on the servers, the Xero API should include the content-disposition and content-type headers on GET Files/{FileId}/Content

    This would be similar how we need to include those fields on POST.

    This means we could simply parse these headers to find out the file name, reducing pressure on the xero api servers.
