Re: Starting with Essentials API

Hi @FernwareSystems,


Thanks for reaching out to us and Welcome to the Community forum. To access the Essentials API, you do not need another API key or to register for the API again. 

You can use the same key to access the Essentials API that you have been for AccountRight. The OAuth process is exactly the same with the exception of the scope is different. You will find that all outlined in the Authentication Documentation on our website. 


If you have any questions about the Essentials API, feel free to reach out to us at

Starting with Essentials API

Hi there,


Previously, I have already successfully build a application to integrate with AccountRight API with MYOB.AccountRight.SDK.

And now, I am trying to extend the application to integrate with Essentials API.

But I kind of confused about the different between the two API.


Anyway, as a starting point. My first question is do I need to register a new api access / api key again for the Essentials API? 


Btw, is there any example code about essntials api? (I guess no Smiley Sad)


Many thanks,
