Intuit Developer News Roundup – September 2018

TLS 1.2: YOU MAY NEED TO MAKE UPDATES TO YOUR APP(S) NOW

Please make sure your application(s) is upgraded to TLS 1.2 on or before September 20, 2018. On that date, Intuit will be deprecating TLS 1.0 and 1.1. If you have not upgraded to TLS 1.2, your app will not be able to access the QuickBooks Accounting API, QuickBooks Payments API or QBMS Payments API.

MINOR VERSIONS

QBO APIs are versioned and have a monthly release where new features and bug fixes are made available in the form of minor versions. Minor versions are used in an API request as a URL query parameter and this value should be updated after each release. If you’re not using this API feature, you’re missing out on all the latest deeds. For example, Inventory Management is available only for minor version 4 and greater.
Minor Version 30 was just released and includes all minor versions 1-29 and also includes new preferences to determine if a company is graduity enabled.

QUICKBOOKS ONLINE API BEST PRACTICES 

Did you know we put up a blog with NINE API best practices?  The entire list of API best practices can be found here, but let’s dig into two of them for the September newsletter:
  • Error Messages: Our API teams are working hard to improve API error messages to make them more descriptive so developers can take action.
  • Webhooks: Webhooks are notification based events that Intuit servers send to app servers to notify of changes in subscribed entities. Once a webhook is received, the app should subsequently make an API call for the entity and the specified ID from the webhook body. More information on how to enable webhooks can be found here.
