Getting Records from QuickBooks by ID


The intuit.quickbooks.getRecordById() task is used to get records from any of the supported modules in your QuickBooks account, by specifying the unique ID of the record.  For example, you can get a customer record from the Customer module in quiockbooks with the given record ID.   To connect Zoho CRM with QuickBooks, download and install the QuickBooks connector from the Zoho Marketplace .

  Supported Modules

The following Quickbooks modules are supported by the intuit.quickbooks task

  • Customer
  • Vendor
  • Item
  • Invoice
  • Account
  • Employee
  • Department


<quickbooksResponse> = intuit.quickbooks.getRecordById("zoho_quickbooks", <quickbooksModuleName>,<quickbooksCompanyId> , <recordId>);

<quickbooksResponse> is the map variable returned by Quickbooks as response. It contains the details of the fetched record.
<quickbooksModuleName> refers to the module name in Quick Books from where the record is fetched.<quickbooksCompanyId>refers to the unique ID generated by Quickbooks for each account. Refer CompanyId  for more information.
<recordId> is the ID in Quickbooks based on which the record related to the ID is fetched.

Refer the Quickboks API Guide  for the attributes to be specified for each module.


A sample script to get a record from the Quickbooks customer module with a given record ID, is given below.

//returns the record with the specified id
getIdResponse = intuit.quickbooks.getRecordById("zoho_quickbooks", "Customer", "1241802285", id);
