2. Create An Application In Xero to link your ATS Basic Software with Xero Account


To create the link between Xero to link your ATS Basic Software with Xero Account we'll first navigate to the Xero Developers / Application management portal while logged into Xero.

 

 



Then press the 'Add Application' button.




In this screen we will choose the following options:


'Private - just for use with my own organisation'

Give the application a name in the 'Application Name' and select the organisation that we want ATS Basic to integrate with in the drop down box under 'Please select which organisation your application can access:'

We'll choose: Upload X509 certificate file (.cer) where we'll upload the file 'publickey.cer' created in previous steps.

And we'll check both of the boxes for 'Enable Payroll API for this organisation' and 'I have read and agree to the Xero Developer Platform'

Then we can hit save.


We can now retrieve the infomation that we will require in the final step by clicking on the name of our new app in the portal.





In the next page the details that we'll need to note down are 'Consumer Key' and 'Application Name' for use in later steps.
