Xero  is cloud-based accounting software for small businesses. It performs bookkeeping functions such as invoicing and payroll and allows you to connect to a live bank feed. For more information, see https://www.xero.com/ .

Early Preview connection: This connection is in early preview. It is read-only and available only in SaaS product editions. For more information on early previews, see Early Preview Connection Types.

Limitations and Requirements

NOTE: During normal selection or import of an entire table, you may encounter an error indicating a problem with a specific column. Since some tables require filtering based on a particular column, data from them can only be ingested using custom SQL statements. In this case, the problematic column can be used as a filter in the WHERE clause of a custom SQL statement to ingest the table.

  • For more information, please consult the CData driver documentation for the specific table.
  • For more information on using custom SQL, see Create Dataset with SQL.

NOTE: For filtering date columns, this connection type supports a set of literal functions on dates. You can use these to reduce the volume of data extracted from the database using a custom SQL query. For more information, see the pg_dateliteralfunctions.htm page in the driver documentation for this connection type.
