Re: Exporting Customer UID from accountright

Hi @bryniker , if you have AccountRight installed, and a copy of the client's file (an myox file)) in your local library, then calls to the file do not require oAuth verification. If your client's file is still in v19.x (an myo file), you can upgrade it on a read-only basis and use that locally (the upgrade process highlights a cloud destination, and in very small print below "what to do if you internet connection is slow" (or simila. 


So you should be able to get the guid out any time.

Re: Exporting Customer UID from accountright

The only way I know of accessing the GUID of the customer is via an API call to the data file.

Exporting Customer UID from accountright

I'm integrating myob functionality into our web service through the accountright API.
Many calls  - for creating invoices, payments, credits, etc - require the identification of a specific customer, using the associated UID.

What we would like to do is maintain a local relationship between our (local) invoicees and remote accountright customer UIDs. (By which I mean the GUID required for updating a customer via the API - eg: "468936d4-12c8-4d3e-a72d-038617783f9d", not the card Id )

Is there a way of including the Customer UID as a field when exporting customer data from accountright?

(I appreciate I can download them all once I have API access to our client's company file, but we'd like to set things up before then)
