Connecting Xero

Connecting your Xero data to Stitch is a four-step process:

  1. Add Xero as a Stitch data source
  2. Define the Historical Sync
  3. Define the Replication Frequency
  4. Authorize Stitch to access Xero

Add Xero as a Stitch Data Source

  1. Sign into your Stitch account.
  2. On the Stitch Dashboard page, click the Add Integration button.

  3. Click the Xero icon.

  4. Enter a name for the integration. This is the name that will display on the for the integration; it’ll also be used to create the schema in your destination.

    For example, the name “Stitch Xero” would create a schema called stitch_xero in the destination. Note: Schema names cannot be changed after you save the integration.

Define the Historical Sync

The Sync Historical Data setting will define the starting date for your Xero integration. This means that:

  • For tables using Incremental Replication, data equal to or newer than this date will be replicated to your data warehouse.
  • For tables using Full Table Replication, all data - including records that are older, equal to, or newer than this date - will be replicated to your data warehouse.

Change this setting if you want to sync data beyond Xero’s default setting of 1 year. For a detailed look at historical syncs, check out the Syncing Historical SaaS Data guide.

Create a replication schedule

In the Replication Frequency section, you’ll create the integration’s replication schedule. An integration’s replication schedule determines how often Stitch runs a replication job, and the time that job begins.

Stitch offers two methods of creating a replication schedule:

  • Replication Frequency: This method requires selecting the interval you want replication to run for the integration. Start times of replication jobs are based on the start time and duration of the previous job. Refer to the Replication Frequency documentation for more information and examples.
  • Anchor scheduling: Based on the Replication Frequency, or interval, you select, this method “anchors” the start times of this integration’s replication jobs to a time you select to create a predictable schedule. Anchor scheduling is a combination of the Anchor Time and Replication Frequency settings, which must both be defined to use this method. Additionally, note that:

    • A Replication Frequency of at least one hour is required to use anchor scheduling.
    • An initial replication job may not begin immediately after saving the integration, depending on the selected Replication Frequency and Anchor Time. Refer to the Anchor Scheduling documentation for more information.

To help prevent overages, consider setting the integration to replicate less frequently. See the Understanding and Reducing Your Row Usage guide for tips on reducing your usage.

Authorizing Stitch to Access Xero

Lastly, you’ll be directed to Xero’s website to complete the setup.

  1. Enter your Xero credentials and click Login.
  2. A screen asking for authorization to Xero will display. Note that Stitch will only ever read your data.
  3. From the dropdown menu, select the company you want to connect to Stitch.
  4. Click Authorise.
  5. After the authorization process successfully completes, you’ll be redirected back to Stitch.
  6. Click All Done.

Initial and historical replication jobs

After you finish setting up Xero, its Sync Status may show as Pending on either the Stitch Dashboard or in the Integration Details page.

For a new integration, a Pending status indicates that Stitch is in the process of scheduling the initial replication job for the integration. This may take some time to complete.

Free historical data loads

The first seven days of replication, beginning when data is first replicated, are free. Rows replicated from the new integration during this time won’t count towards your quota. Stitch offers this as a way of testing new integrations, measuring usage, and ensuring historical data volumes don’t quickly consume your quota.
