Trial Balance Summary and Changes

Hi there,

Today we’ve released the trial balance summary as an API resource.

https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/trial_balance

We’ve also started a list of recent changes which we plan to update as we
fix bugs, correct documentation and deliver new features.

https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/changes

We’re all looking forward to seeing what you build with this new resource.

All the best,

Graeme

Hi,

No worries, looks like I have a working fix deployed based on /company now.
Thanks.

Hi Phil,

It was our intention to prevent the creation of resources before the
FreeAgent start date but not to throw an error when finding resources.
We’ll fix this ASAP. In the meantime, the FreeAgent start date is
available on the /company resource so you could validate that your
searching code uses the date your currently using or the FreeAgent start
date and pick whichever is later.

Thanks for reporting this,

Graeme

Hi Graeme,

It seems that this update has introduced an undocumented change to the
bills endpoint as our imports are now all failing.

Previously FA didn’t mind what the from_date was set to on the bills
endpoint. But as of last yesterday FA raises a 400 if the from_date is
before a company’s FA start date:

“2012-02-01 is before the FreeAgent start date: 2012-11-01”

Was this intentional? I guess it’s a useful warning, but it seems to me
like it shouldn’t raise an error, it should just return an empty list.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Phil

Hi guys,

Just to give you a quick update, we’ve just deployed a fix for this issue.
You should now get the behaviour you expect from pre-start-date stuff in
the API.

Best wishes,

Hi everyone

Is there an ETA on the fix for this? I’m seeing it with mobileAgent
users, on the /v2/bank_accounts endpoint:

/v2/bank_accounts/NNNNNN / 03/01/2013 08:42:58 / 02/02/2013 08:42:58
“errors”:{“error”:{“message”:“2013-01-03 is before the FreeAgent start
date: 2013-02-01”}}}

I’d had three just this morning :frowning:

Thanks

Nic
(I’ll email it thru via support, too, as I suspect a ticket is a good
idea to track it)On 1 February 2013 09:32, Graeme Boyd graeme.boyd@freeagent.com wrote:

Thanks! I’ve emailed the users that got hold of me, so if they are
still having issues, its going to be something else :slight_smile:

Cheers!
