RE: How can I batch invoices into customer payments using the REST API?

Hi all,

Having trouble creating/transforming invoices into customer payments using the REST API. I have no issue transforming an invoice into a customer payment like so:

POST {{REST_SERVICES}}/record/v1/invoice/4960/!transform/customerpayment 

However I’d like to add multiple invoices to a customer payment in one API call, and I’m not sure how to do that. When I structure my request like this;

How can I batch invoices into customer payments using the REST API?

I get the following error:

“type”: “”,
“title”: “Error while accessing resource: You have attempted an invalid sublist or line item operation. You are either trying to access a field on a non-existent line or you are trying to add or remove lines from a static sublist.”,
“status”: 400,
“o:errorCode”: “USER_ERROR”
Ideally I would be able to transform multiple invoices into a customer payment…perhas by using the transformation of customer->customerpayment. But I’m not sure how to include multiple invoices that way.

Hi Jonathan,

Invoice grouping may well get you to the end result from what I’ve seen but I don’t think it’s included in any of the documentation at the moment.

In case you loop back to some of your original thinking, I believe this is the sort of area you’d need to look at in order to update the apply sublist:

The keys in question should be the references to the invoices that you want to pay.

I hope this might help and, equally, I’ve done a little playing around with Invoice Groups so please feel free to give me a shout if you want to discuss anything in that area too.
