Project description

Quickbooks Online Database Connector

Connects Quickbooks online to a database to transfer information to and fro.


This project requires Python 3+.

  1. Download this project and use it (copy it in your project, etc).

  2. Install it from pip.

     $ pip install qbo-db-connector


To use this connector you'll need these Quickbooks credentials used for OAuth2 authentication: client ID, client secret and refresh token.

This connector is very easy to use.

import logging
import sqlite3

from qbo_db_connector import QuickbooksExtractConnector, QuickbooksLoadConnector

dbconn = sqlite3.connect('/tmp/temp.db')

logger = logging.getLogger('Quickbooks usage')
    format='%(asctime)s %(name)s: %(message)s', level=logging.INFO, handlers=[logging.StreamHandler()]

quickbooks_config = {
    'client_id': '<CLIENT ID>',
    'client_secret': '<CLIENT SECRET>',
    'realm_id': '<REALM ID>',
    'refresh_token': '<REFRESH TOKEN>',
    'base_url': '<API BASE URL>',
    'environment': '<ENVIRONMENT>',
    'web_app_url': '<QUICKBOOKS WEB APP URL>'
}'Quickbooks db connector usage')

quickbooks_extract = QuickbooksExtractConnector(config=quickbooks_config, dbconn=dbconn)
quickbooks_load = QuickbooksLoadConnector(config=quickbooks_config, dbconn=dbconn)

# make sure you save the updated refresh token
refresh_token = quickbooks_extract.refresh_token

# extracting

# loading
quickbooks_load.load_attachment(ref_id='100', ref_type='check')
