The QuickBooks Synapse enables data synchronization between QuickBooks objects and Syncari entities using the QuickBooks API. After the Synapse is Authenticated, you can Activate the QuickBooks Synapse, which enables Syncari to replicate the QuickBooks schema and make it available within the Unified Data Model.

Using Sync Studio, you can map QuickBooks objects to Syncari entities and HubSpot fields to Syncari fields. To accelerate the setup and configuration of these pipelines, Syncari provides a default mapping for the standard objects and fields in QuickBooks as an option you can choose.

Configure the QuickBooks Synapse in Syncari

Once you have a QuickBooks applications set and configured, you can add a QuickBooks synapse into your account. You can drag the synapse into the canvas and click on it. This will open a prompt where you can first set the Synapse name and the endpoint ("https://quickbooks.api.intuit.com/v3/company" if you are using your production account or "https://sandbox-quickbooks.api.intuit.com/v3/company" if you are using a sandbox one) and the Realm ID which is your Company ID from Step 4. 


On the next page you need to input the ClientID and Secret - that you obtained from the application set up in QuickBooks. Once the credentials are added you can click on gray generate button and after on the test authentication one. This will open a prompt window for you to log into your QuickBooks account and confirm the integration.


If you receive a success message you will be prompted to Activate the Synapse and begin building pipelines.
