Intuit has great online accounting tools for small business entrepreneurs. It has vast and secure API for desktop and web applications to interchange data. To connect your application to Intuit Quickbooks, you may suffer and frustrated as we did. But finally we made things easy as like as piece of cake.

Connection of Hosted Model (Web Applications):

  1. To complete this step, you need to generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request). Please note that, this is not server certificate, it is user/client certificate to authorize intuit server. You can follow the steps  which described below.
  2. CSR should generate in this format – your-https-hostname.com:your-application-login, you need openssl installed.
  3. Login to your server as root/administrator via console/SSH
  4. Type and execute – openssl genrsa -out host.key 1024. host.key will contain private key for the CSR
  5. Now will generate CSR by using host.key, type – openssl req -new -nodes -key host.key -out host.csr
    this command will ask you some information regarding CSR generation.

  • If everything went fine, then intuit will POST connection ticket via callback URL as we setup above (i.e.: https://www.example-domain.com/intuit_post.php)
  • You are done, your application can inter-exchange data with intuit.
