Node.js からXero Data をクエリ

API Server は、データを外部に公開します。CData API Server のOData エンドポイントを使って、Node.js からXero data へのCRUD クエリを実行します。

CData API Server とADO.NET Provider for Xero(もしくは210+ の他のADO.NET Providers)を使って、Xero をOData エンドポイントして公開し、Node.js からシンプルなHTTP リクエストでクエリを実現します。本記事ではAPI Server を使ってJSON でフォーマットされたXero データをNode.js でリクエストする方法を説明します。

Set Up the API Server

Follow the steps below to begin producing secure Xero OData services:

Deploy

The API Server runs on your own server. On Windows, you can deploy using the stand-alone server or IIS. On a Java servlet container, drop in the API Server WAR file. See the help documentation for more information and how-tos.

The API Server is also easy to deploy on Microsoft Azure, Amazon EC2, and Heroku.

Connect to Xero

After you deploy the API Server and the ADO.NET Provider for Xero, provide authentication values and other connection properties needed to connect to Xero by clicking Settings -> Connections and adding a new connection in the API Server administration console.

To connect, set the Schema connection property in addition to any authentication values. Xero offers authentication for private applications, public applications, and partner applications. You will need to set the XeroAppAuthentication property to PUBLIC, PRIVATE, or PARTNER, depending on the type of application configured. To connect from a private application, you will additionally need to set the OAuthAccessToken, OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, CertificateStoreType, CertificateStore, and CertificateStorePassword.

To connect from a public or partner application, you can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL, or you can register an app to obtain your own OAuth values.

See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to authenticating to Xero.

You can then choose the Xero entities you want to allow the API Server access to by clicking Settings -> Resources.

Authorize API Server Users

After determining the OData services you want to produce, authorize users by clicking Settings -> Users. The API Server uses authtoken-based authentication and supports the major authentication schemes. Access can also be restricted based on IP address; all IP addresses except the local machine are restricted by default. You can authenticate as well as encrypt connections with SSL.

Consume Xero OData Feeds from Node.js

OData feeds are easy to work with in Node.js. You can use the HTTP client in Node.js to request JSON-formatted data from the API Server's OData endpoint. After making the request, you can construct the body of the response and call the JSON.parse() function to parse it into records.

The code below will make an authenticated request for Items data. The example URL below applies a simple filter that searches for records with a value of Golf balls - white single in the Name column.

var http = require('http'); http.get({ protocol: "http:", hostname: "MyServer.com", port: MyPort, path: "/api.rsc/Items?$filter=" + encodeURIComponent("Name eq 'Golf balls - white single'"), auth: 'MyUser:MyAuthtoken' }, function(res) { var body = ''; res.on('data', function(chunk) { body += chunk; }); res.on('end', function() { console.log(body); var jsonData = JSON.parse(body); }); }).on('error', function(e) { console.log("Error: ", e); });
