Create invoice returns "payment_terms_in_days" no matter what

Hi Joe,

Are you missing out the top level invoice key? The following works for me:

curl https://api.freeagent.com/v2/invoices -H “Authorization: Bearer
XXXXXX”
-H “Accept: application/json”
-H “Content-Type: application/json”
-X POST
-d ‘{“invoice”: {
“contact”: “https://api.freeagent.com/v2/contacts/1”,
“dated_on”: “2012-07-02T00:00:00+00:00”,
“due_on”: “2012-08-01T00:00:00+00:00”,
“reference”: “freshbooks-0000482”,
“currency”: “GBP”,
“status”: “Sent”,
“payment_terms_in_days”: 30,
“invoice_items”: [
{
“description”: “invoice”,
“price”: “3262.50”,
“quantity”: 1
}
]
}
}’

Does that help?

Kind regards,

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create invoices via the API, and no matter what I do I am
getting the error “payment_terms_in_days” no matter what. My request data
is:

{“contact”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/contacts/1001840",“dated_on”:“2012-07-02T00:00:00+00:00”,“due_on”:“2012-08-01T00:00:00+00:00”,“reference”:“freshbooks-0000482”,“currency”:“GBP”,“status”:“Sent”,“payment_terms_in_days”:30,“invoice_items”:[{“description”:“invoice”,“price”:“3262.50”,"quantity”:1}]}

And I get the response:

{“errors”:[{“message”:“payment_terms_in_days is not a number”},{“message”:“base Invoice Date is not valid”}]}

I have tried this locally and in the oAuth 2.0 Playground from Google. Is there a problem on freeagents side? I have tried different numbers, passing the number as a string etc.

Any pointers much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Joe,

No problem.

I can see how the docs are confusing - we should improve the examples. We
do try to make it that the request and response are similar so you could
create a resource in the app and then make a GET request via the api to see
the format a request should take.

Kind regards,

Thank you very much, this is now working for me too. Looking at the
documentation here:
https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/invoices#create-an-invoice I didn’t say
that. Is the top level “invoice” implicit and it’s just me being stupid or
should this be explicitly mentioned in the docs?

Thanks a million!

Joe

This caught me too. You do a great job of showing the response in your docs
but it would be super helpful to show example requests as well. This is
typically the difficult part, not the response.

Currently building a Ruby gem for you guys as well, so that’ll help speed
up development.On Thursday, 19 July 2012 06:51:20 UTC-6, Graeme Boyd wrote:
