Xero Accounting API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Xero Accounting API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 800+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    xero_accounting_api: {
      type: "app",
      app: "xero_accounting_api",
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://api.xero.com/connections`,
      headers: {
        Authorization: `Bearer ${this.xero_accounting_api.$auth.oauth_access_token}`,
      },
    })
  },
})

Authentication

Xero Accounting uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Xero Accounting account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Xero Accounting and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Xero Accounting API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
