Anyone got Xero working via API connector?

Just wondering if it’s even possible?


I use Xero, have done since it was launched, but have not connected bubble to it yet. But, there is no technical reason why it wouldn’t be possible @simon - both have well defined APIs.

I think bubble doesn’t support the authentication method Xero’s API uses but I am not 100% sure.


Interesting … you are correct. Xero are still in pre-historic times with OAuth1a. That’s a nuisance. They do talk about transitioning to OAuth2 but don’t give any timescale. I guess when you are as big as they are you get to set your terms.

@gaby you know a bit about APIs and I’ve checked in your course but can’t answer @simon question. Could it be done with Self-handled Authentication?

@simon I found this recent reply to a post on Xero’s forum. It appears that their team are already working on making an oAuth2 API available so it may just be a case of sitting tight for a while.

And their Trello roadmap indicates that it is a near-term release

Wow thanks Patricia for taking the time to research :slight_smile:

It’s on my roadmap too … just not likely to need it before early next year.

hey all, just wanted to let you know that we have published a Xero Plugin which we built with code to connect to their oAuth 1.0
here is the link 🧮 Xero Accounting - New Plugin from Zeroqode

Great thanks will give it a try
