Re: Xero integration

I think @systemstateit was very close to complete such a plugin for XERO. Now, there is also an option to create UCRM plugin which could connect to XERO. https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002433113-UCRM-Plugins

Re: Xero integration

@UBNT-Petr yes you are correct @systemstateit did get very close, but I dont think he had the take up needed and was very busy with other things. 

 

Its great this Plugins, but I have no idea how to build a plugin. Can you make a central place to have people who are willing to build plugins listed? and can you or anyone recommend anyone?

Re: Xero integration

Yes, we are considering some central place for plugin requests and developers. Meanwhile, feel free to create a new thread for this.

Re: Xero integration

@UBNT-Petr Any chance we could at least get a forum category setup for UCRM Plugins quick like?

 

We just moved to Xero a few weeks ago and I have a hackish version of a plugin that I will be working on finalizing for end-users in the next week or so, but there are a lot of questions about features I would love to visit with the community about.  I would rather keep that kind of thing here, as opposed to a dedicated site for my own plugins for features/bugs/etc.

 

I also have several other plugins getting ready to deploy that we use internally, including a NetFlow v10 (IPFIX) listener, AC2 Heartbeat Listener as an alternative to NetFlow, Custom Suspension system with full Captive Portal Detection, GUI Injection and a lot of core code to make Plugin development easier that I would love to share.

 

Thoughts on this, as the UCRM Forum seems like it’s cluttered enough that at least separation of Plugin relegated conversation would be wise.

Re: Xero integration

@rspaeth Sounds awesome and agree with you about a section on the Forum. 

 

I'm happy to test your Xero plugin when ready! 

 

I also set up this thread today - https://community.ubnt.com/t5/UCRM/Plugin-Developer-Required/m-p/2433108#M10407

Re: Xero integration

@RuralWireless,

 

Just got back from vacation and have to fix a few issues with my own SDK code, but still trying to get this done.

Re: Xero integration

Hi guys,

 

I'm doing a follow-up to see if there is an integration module between UCRM and Xero?

Re: Xero integration

Petr, do you have a time line for the UCRM-Xero synchronization project?

Re: Xero integration

[ Edited ]

@RuralWireless,

 

I believe I am the only one that has been working on one, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

There were some "hacks" I had to do to make it function reliably that I have been very unhappy with and will be able to completely eliminate once we have the upcoming plugin "hooks" available.  I am to understand that this feature may be available as early as the 2.16.0-beta1 release, but I do not want to speak for the Ubiquiti team.

 

Once I have those capabilities, I should be able to complete it somewhat quickly.

 

That being said, I have also been working on a nearly completely rewrite of the actual synchronization code to make sure that any changes (in either direction) get wrapped up as a "transaction" that can later be completely undone if required.  This only occurred to me after seeing some of the recent issues with the QuickBooks plugin.  I would personally hate to have to sort out a mess like that, so I figured why not find a solution to the problem.

 

As a side note, the first viable release will only support 2.16.0-beta1 (or which ever version supports the hooks) and beyond.  So, if you are in a huge hurry for the integration, and will be using the stable branch (which I would think you should) then completed integration with Xero could still be months away.  Also worth mentioning, the first release will only be uni-directional from UCRM to Xero, with bi-directional support following likely before we even move to the next UCRM stable branch.

 

I am very much looking forward to completing this one, as we are also moving to using Xero as soon as it is ready!
