QBO Time API Call - Stuck

Hello - I am trying to execute a Quickbooks “Make an API Call” module. Many of the Make modules that pre-exist within Make do not obtain the information I need. Unfortunately, even though I have read through the Intuit API instructions I am stuck. I cant get it to work and I think it is because I misinterpreting how I am supposed to submit the GET request. Not sure if anyone has experience with this and can help?

Welcome to the Make community!

If the external service has a Developer API Reference/Documentation then you should be able to integrate the endpoints in Make using the app’s universal module (Make an API call) or generic HTTP “Make a request” module.

You can also suggest for it to be made in the Idea exchange. Don’t forget to search for it first, just in case someone already suggested it, so that you don’t end up creating a duplicate.

If you need assistance in setting up the app’s universal module, or the generic HTTP module, please provide additional information about what you have tried with regards to the external service’s Developer API Reference – how you are setting the connection up, a link to the endpoint are you trying to connect to, and what errors you are encountering.

You can also complete this brand new course/tutorial in the Make Academy on how to use external APIs — API calls with HTTP modules

Hi @samliew! Thank you for replying to my question. I think the biggest mistake I am making is not knowing how to interpret the way QBO Time wants me to make the request. There are a bunch of standard QBO time modules in Make that already grab a ton of data but for many of the companies I work for they have very customized data within QBO Time.

If I look at a GET request for custom fields for example and I go to Intuits API protocol (QuickBooks Time API Reference) on this, this is the example of how the request needs to be made;

curl “https://rest.tsheets.com/api/v1/customfields” \ -H “Authorization: Bearer ” \

I am not really sure how to interpret this. I have the API Key and the other requirements but when I put in the base URL and the authorization key I get error code 404.

If you see https://tsheetsteam.github.io/api_docs/#authentication, it is referring to an OAuth connection.

You need to use the HTTP Make an OAuth request module instead of just the basic HTTP module.
