Last year Xero advised developers that they will be migrating the Xero Developer API websites to use SHA2 type SSL certificates in place of the current SHA1 certificates on March 9th 2016. Xero has provided a test API site with the SHA2 SSL certificate installed for developers to run some tests to ensure their applications work with the new SSL certificates.
We’ve run a series of tests using the fmAccounting Link (Xero Edition) solution file against the test API site and are pleased to report that everything worked successfully. We were able to authenticate, download and upload data correctly, so at this stage we don’t anticipate any issues once the new SHA2 type SSL certificates go live in March.
If you encounter any issues with your own testing please let us know so we can address these ASAP.
