QuickBooks Online APIs & oauth

Hey all, I'm in the very beginning stages of setting up a couple of API calls (send via "make request" step in pipelines) to QuickBooks Online. I have searched for an example of a successful implementation somewhere in the forums but can't find one. The article on Base-Books pipelines makes a reference at the very end to more information regarding using API calls to add sub-customers and rates, but I haven't been able to find it. 

I've got all the QBO-side API documentation, but I'm a bit stuck and would just love to look through an actual functional API call. 

Does anyone have a good example they'd be willing to share with me, or know of an app with an example in the exchange maybe? 

Thank you!

  • Elena Im trying to figure out the Oauth setting too on the POST request. 

    Username is Client ID
    Password is Client Secret

    Token URL is https://oauth.platform.intuit.com/oauth2/v1/tokens/bearer
    Oauth credential placement is body
    URL is https://sandbox-quickbooks.api.intuit.com/v3/company/<company_id_here>/estimate?minorversion=1 (make sure you put your company ID in that URL)

    But where do we set State and Scope?

    here is a picture of how I got the OAuth working in Postman, I'm just having a hard time translating it to the Quickbase Post Request

      Thank you Jamelle! 

      For scope and state, is there a way to set them in the actual request body in the pipeline? I've been referencing the QBO API explorer, I wonder if they specify. 

      Here's my very basic question - where are you actually going to get your client id and client secret?

        Elena, you get the client ID and secret by logging into the Quickbooks developer portal and creating a test application it's normally here

        https://developer.intuit.com/app/developer/myapps

        They when you go there to the development Application, it's under Keys and Credentials. I also remembered to get it to work with Postman I needed a redirect URL to postman, but I think that's just to get the auth token to use in the post request. So hopefully after a Request, we can use the JSONP Response to parse out the Auth Token that is generated to then use in another request later. But right now I am stumped on where I would put State and Scope, because I just don't know.
