Bringing across data from your old platform to Xero can be tricky. From pre-conversion, to post-conversion we’ll help you understand what information is useful, and how Xero can help you make sense of it all. From start to finish, our partner consultant team are ready to take you on your new Xero journey.

Looking at the home/index view, you’ll find that we’ve done this by including Xero’s pre-built sign in button. The data-href attributes in each are linking to our secure route from earlier to kick off the respective signin flow. You may have noticed that in the HomeController we’ve left the Index route as a non-secure route.

It All Starts In Xero Hq

Xero and WorkflowMax’s online accounting software means you can automate everyday business tasks, get up-to-date financials and run your business – from wherever you are.

I must say – I haven’t yet done the conversion to a service, but I can’t see any issues with it. My plan to deploy it will be to run XOAuth once, copy/paste the tokens and expiry time/date, client ID and tenant ID into the application settings, and go from there. Will it be possible to give your example project above to work with the latest xero oauth please? Australian Tax is an integral part of Xero Practice Manager. Our practice tools are completely free for Silver and above partners, or can be purchased for a monthly charge.

Organisation data is retrieved on behalf of the user using their access token, and tenant id from each connection. We also redirect to a separate page prompting the user to add an organisation if they’ve signed into the app but never connected an organisation. You may have also noticed that we’re defining a function to be run when tokens are successfully validated. We’re using this event to save access/refresh tokens, along with the access token’s expiry time, into our token store for the user that has just successfully signed in/up. Below you’ll find the implementation of our OnTokenValidated function. It is mandatory to procure user consent prior to running these cookies on your website.

Firstly we’re stating that we want to use cookies as our default authentication scheme, and naming the challenge scheme (“XeroSignIn”) that we’d like to use as our default challenge scheme. You’ll see this challenge scheme implemented in the next section of code, along with an explanation of the differences between the two. We’ve chosen the XeroSignIn challenge scheme as the default because our users are more likely to want to sign into our app rather than sign up new connections when revisiting our app. The MemoryTokenStore singleton is just a very simple token store using an in memory dictionary as token storage. It will be used to store access/refresh tokens against Xero UserIds to be used when retrieving data from Xero’s API. The implementation of MemoryTokenStore can be found here. Update the appsettings.json file to include your ClientId and ClientSecret.
