Intacct Sync Guide: Create a Web Services Bill.com Sync User in Intacct

Table of Contents

Create a user at the Root/Top Level in Intacct and give it full permissions. For multi-entity Intacct environments, if you have multiple Bill.com accounts syncing with the Entity Level, you will use the same sync user credentials in Bill.com, and distinguish each by adding the Entity ID when you enter your Intacct Login Info. 

Sync user creation

To create the Bill.com Sync User, complete the following steps in Intacct at the Root/Top Level

  1. Go to Company > Web Services Users > Add
  2. Enter the following field values:
    • User ID, Last name, First name: 
      • Enter XML_Bill.com 
      • This username indicates a non-billable user and is used strictly for the integration
    • Email address
      • Use the email address of the person managing the Bill.com account or the sync
    • User type
      • Select Business 
    • Admin privileges
      • Select Full
  3. Click Save

Once the XML_Bill.com user is created, you will receive an email from Intacct containing a password
