Missing fields from Expenses GET

Hi,

I mentioned this a while back but I’m still getting missing data from the
JSON response to a GET to https://api.freeagent.com/v2/expenses

For example, from the documentation I expect to get back

{
“expenses”:[
{
“path”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/expenses/1”,
“user”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/users/1”,
“category”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/categories/285”,
“dated_on”:“2011-08-24”,
“gross_value”:"-12.0",
“sales_tax_rate”:“20.0”,
“description”:“Some description”,
“manual_sales_tax_amount”:“0.12”,
“updated_at”:“2011-08-24T08:10:40Z”,
“created_at”:“2011-08-24T08:10:40Z”,
}
]
}

but I really get back (with no sales_tax_rate field, the path field has
turned into url). I didn’t set a manual tax amount through the GUI in the
example below and 0.04 (the default?) isn’t the correct value (it should be
0.20 in this example), so I can’t calculate the sales tax rate.

{
“expenses”:[
{
“url”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/expenses/…”,
“user”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/users/…”,
“category”:“https://api.freeagent.com/v2/categories/285”,
“dated_on”:“2012-01-04”,
“gross_value”:"-4.35",
“manual_sales_tax_amount”:“0.04”,
“description”:“Subsistence”,
“receipt_reference”:“03572500032”,
“updated_at”:“2012-01-27T17:05:58+00:00”,
“created_at”:“2012-01-27T17:05:58+00:00”
} …

Any ideas? This is a blocker for me app :frowning:

Cheers,
Toby

I think path was from an old version of the api (ie v2 beta 0) and the
docs never got updated. I had the same issue half way thru my API
client development, but on the up side: all the (server side) models
are now the same, so it’s URL everywhere.

(this is being used for mobileAgent, but it should work for anything
which uses C#/.NET/Mono/MonoTouch/MonoForAndroid etc)

And, I’m pretty sure that the sales tax rate never comes back - you
only get back what the values was calculated to be, based on the rate
(or, if you submit, don’t provide one and it’ll work it out for you)

Graeme should know tho :)On Tue, Oct 23, 2012 at 8:33 AM, Toby toby.weston@gmail.com wrote:

Thanks for the reply and link Nic,

It’s a shame you can get back the manual sales tax (even when you didn’t
set it and in that case, it comes back with a strange default) but can’t
get the calculated sales tax rate.

My app needs this to break down expenses with the rate. Without it, I’ll
have to duplicate and maintain a list of rates to categories :frowning:
