System Requirements

I want to consume the API

The MYOB Business API itself is built to the standard REST specification. This means a developer wishing to consume the MYOB Business API, either on desktop or in the cloud, is free to choose any language which supports consumption of REST based web-services.

These languages include (but are not limited to)

  • ASP
  • C#
  • .net
  • VB
  • Python
  • PHP
  • Ruby
  • Node.js
  • Go
  • Perl
  • C++
  • Objective C
  • and more

To consume the MYOB Business API, a developer simply chooses the language & platform that works best for them and they then communicate with the API over HTTP.

Local API Service

I want to use the desktop API service

When in the desktop environment AccountRight runs a local API service over HTTP (generally found at http://localhost:8080) which enables a local application to communicate with the locally served API.This API service then in turn communicates to the AccountRight application.

There are some minimum software requirements for running this API service as part of AccountRight.

Operating system

Microsoft Windows 10
Microsoft Windows 8.1

Microsoft .NET

Version 4.7.2
Please note that Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7 are not supported.


Just to clarify, you do NOT need .net 4.7.2 to consume the API.

If you wish to have the AccountRight API service run in a local environment, this computer must have .net 4.7.2 in order for the API Service to run alongside AccountRight. Your application however can run in any language that can consume a REST based API.
