The Intacct connector is designed to allow you to move data into and out of Intacct's on-demand financial application suite. As an Intacct user, you can use DBSync's Intacct connector to integrate any on-premise applications and legacy systems with Intacct. This connector may also be used for integrating Intacct with other on-demand or SaaS based applications like CRM, E-Commerce, and others. Integrating with Intacct consists of an XML request/response sent over an HTTPS connection. The technical details of this connection such as request headers, error handling, HTTPS connection, etc. are all abstracted from the user to make implementation quick and easy.


In order to establish a connection to your Intacct account from DBSync's Intacct connector, you'll need the following

  1. You must confirm that your Intacct account is subscribed to the XML gateway and has privileges to connect to the Intacct API. Your Intacct representative can confirm this for you by providing you with a sender ID and password specific to the integration API.
  2. You must have Intacct URL that you should connect to. The default is, but this should be confirmed by Intacct of your specific implementation.
  3. You must understand which interface(s) and XML request you would like to integrate basing on your business and integration requirement.
  4. You should also refer to Intacct Developer site for detail description of the available interface. Supported API XML version is 2.1.

Connector Configurations

The Intacct connector instance represents a single Intacct account, including login credentials. If a user wishes to connect to multiple instances of the either sandbox/production, create a separate connection for each and configure the parameters accordingly. The below table represent parameters required for opening the connection to Intacct user instance.

'select' query to get records from Intacct


Supported Query format

The Intacct Trigger allows dbsync core system to query entities from the Intacct Backend services. Intacct exposes a “get” and “get_list” interface which is masked using a “SELECT query syntax” exposed by the Intacct connector. The  “SELECT query” syntax is given below:

select [ fld, fld2, fld3,…fldn / *] <fields>
from <entity>
where [<fld1> opr <fld2>] <single_condition>
or/and[<fld1><opr> <fld2>,<fld3><opr><fld4>]|or/and[<fld5><opr><fld6] <multiple conditions>
order_by <fld1> asc, <fld2> asc, <fld3> desc <order_by_clause>

In the above-mentioned syntax:

Fields:  The fields are actually the attributes or the elements within an entity which need to be fetched by the query. In case all the fields need to be fetched “*” could be used

Entity: The entity which needs to be fetched from the Intacct Backend

Where Clause: The “where” clause takes in a series of “or/and “ conditions which internally contain the logical expressions ( the operands) which need to be operated upon. Please note that only the first condition will have two expressions as operands and any other additional operand will be a single expression.

Please note that a “single_condition” is also supported which consists of a single expression in the where clause

Order By Clause: The “order_by” clause allows the sort order to be specified for the fields fetched

Note that where and order_by clauses are both optional and need not be specified. The “Query Type” property in Intacct Trigger  specifies whether it is a list query or a single select query

Following are some examples

  select * from customer

 select customerid,name,parentid,termname,custrepid,shippingmethod,custtype,taxid,creditlimit from customer

 select * from invoice WHERE [whenmodified < 10/22/2010 00:00:00\]

 select recordno,customerid,name from customer where [customerid = ZAB001] AND [recordno = 24]

 select * from customer [key=Key_Value]
