Web hook intergration

Callum

Hi,

We develop an ERP solution called Abel (www.abelsoftware.com) and we are in the early stages of building an API integration for Expensify.

We were wondering if you could provide a technical contact for our API developer to talk to. Specifically we are interested in knowing whether their is an option to use web hooks. For example when a report is approved Expensify would open a connection with a 3rd party - the 3rd party software would have a listener waiting to accept connections from Expensify.

Cheers

    Hi @Callum, thanks for posting! Our developer API is currently closed, but our Integration Server API is available for use, documentation here.

    The Integration Server (IS) API doesn't currently support web hooks. The IS API is only built for “on demand” data so the listener would never work unless you programmed a daily download job and set date filters something like: if report is “approved” after “Xdate” then perform a function.

    I hope this is a little more clear but let me know how else I can help!
