Businesses

At Railz, a Business refers to an entity that shares connection(s) to their accounting service provider(s). Businesses are often represented by your customers.

Businesses are uniquely identified by their Business Name, denoted by businessName, which you may declare when they connect their accounting service provider(s) through Railz Connect™.

Restrictions on Business Names

If you don't provide a business name when loading Railz Connect™ in your client-side app, Railz Connect™ will auto-generate a unique identifier as the business name.

Business Names must be:

  • Unique
  • At least 2 characters long
  • A maximum of 40 characters long

Business Statuses

Each Railz business has a status that can be one of the following values:

  • inactive: Businesses with no active connections. You will still be able to retrieve existing data but no future synchronization will take place.
  • active: The business has connected to an accounting service provider and you should be able to retrieve its accounting data.
