How does QuickBooks Web Connector work?

For creating the QWC file, you have to set the corresponding properties and call the CreateQWCFile method. We give you some sample code to do this using sample values:

Qbwcserver qbwcserver1 = new Qbwcserver();

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.AppDescription = “A short description for WCWebService.asmx”;

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.AppName = “WCWebService1”;

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.AppSupportURL = “http://developer.intuit.com”;

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.AppURL = “http://localhost/WCWebService/WCWebService.asmx”;

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.FileId = “{90A44FB5-33D9-4815-AC85-BC87A7E7D1EB}”;

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.OwnerId = “{57F3B9B1-86F1-4fcc-B1EE-566DE1813D20}”;

qbwcserver1.QWCFileInfo.User = “qbtest1”;



After the file is generated, the user will get the file from your website and you will also assign a password for the user at that time. The user will get the password directly and it will be sent to your web application during the connection for verification purposes.

Once the file generated, add the QWC file to QuickBooks Web Connector. Select file > Add an application and navigate to the file.
