Xero

With Xero modules in Make, you can watch, create, update, retrieve, list, and/or delete accounts, bank transfers, bank transactions, change history, contacts, contact groups, credit notes, employees, files, invoices, items, journal manuals, notes, payments, purchase orders, and tax rates in your Xero account.

To use the Xero modules, you must have a Xero account. If you do not have an account, you can create one at xero.com/signup/.

Refer to the Xero API documentation for the list of available endpoints.

Note

This app is for use with a Xero account and does not support Xero HQ.

Connect Xero to Make

To establish the connection:

  1. Log in to your Make account, add a Xero module to your scenario, and click Create a connection.

    Note: If you add a module with an instant tag, click Create a webhook, then Create a connection.

  2. Optional: In the Connection name field, enter a name for the connection.

  3. Optional: Click Show advanced settings and choose the Scopes for the connection. Each module's scopes can be found in the Build Xero Scenarios section below listed as Required Permissions. For more information regarding scopes, refer to the Xero API documentation.

  4. Click Save.

  5. If prompted, authenticate your account and confirm access.

You have successfully established the connection. You can now edit your scenario and add more Xero modules. If your connection requires reauthorization at any point, follow the connection renewal steps here.

Note

If you receive an error regarding permissions when creating the connection, you must manually add Scopes for the module. Refer to the Build Xero Scenarios section below for each module's required permissions.

If you add a new Xero module to a scenario and use an existing connection, you may be prompted to update the connection permissions. Click Continue > Allow access to extend the permissions.
