You can download the Intacct Postman collection to quickly try out these APIs. If you are new to Postman, work through the tutorial first.
When implementing new APIs, Sage Intacct provides generic or open functions that can operate on multiple types of objects. The older, object-specific functions are labeled as legacy in the documentation, which means they are typically not enhanced. There are no plans to deprecate legacy functions, and in fact, there are cases in which they are the only functions available.
If an object or function is not included in the API documentation, it is likely not yet supported and subject to change. You can post an idea on the Sage Intacct Community or log a support case to inquire about the status of such objects and functions.
This section deals with providing information about a company or working with consoles. These objects are mainly for system administrators, but end users do interact with some of these.
The General Ledger is where you create and maintain accounts, journals, and financial reports. You use the General Ledger to post journal entries, design and run reports, create budgets, and more. Other Sage Intacct subscriptions automatically post transactions to the General Ledger in real-time.
Cash Management is used to manage your cash accounts, including banks, savings institutions, and charge cards—all in one centralized location.
Accounts Payable (AP) enables you to keep track of your vendor accounts and bills. Basically, you enter and edit your vendor transactions, and then pay them.
Accounts Receivable (AR) is used to manage a full AR cycle, including customers, receivables transactions, and generating reports.
Employee Expenses streamlines your company’s expense reporting and approval process.
Purchasing is used to automate purchasing transactions and monitor and manage merchandise acquisition.
Order Entry involves the creation and management of customer orders. Activities related to order entry include managing data related to customer orders, processing order transactions, and running reports on customer orders.
Use Inventory Control to track your merchandise and maintain and analyze your inventory. This subscription is fully integrated with the other Sage Intacct subscriptions, particularly Purchasing and Order Entry
Project and Resource Management enables services companies to automate many of the functions of financial project management.
There are two consolidation methods: Global Consolidations and Advanced Consolidations. Both enable you to consolidate books, but each is specific to the way a company is set up, such as whether the company is: shared/distributed and/or single currency/multi-currency. The fundamental difference is based on company data lists-such as the chart of accounts-and whether or not entities can share them.
Contracts and Revenue Management provides an automated way to address the sweeping accounting changes included in ASC 606 (Revenue from contracts with customers).
Customization Services enables you to customize Sage Intacct standard objects in your company to suit your business needs.
Platform Services is a tool set that developers can use to extend Sage Intacct with custom objects and applications.
Data Delivery Service (DDS) enables companies to extract massive amounts of data from Sage Intacct and send that data to a cloud storage location. DDS is useful for companies that do cross-system reporting, want to use analytics tools outside of Intacct, and/or need to share information across other companies they own or manage.
