Zoho Books Connector


The Jitterbit Harmony Zoho Books Connector establishes access to Zoho Books.

The Zoho Books connector provides an interface for creating a Zoho Books connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Zoho Books activities. Activities interact with Zoho Books through the connection and are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

The Zoho Books connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connections tab (see Design Component Palette).


This connector can be used only with Private Agents. In addition, it is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.

OAuth Authentication

OAuth authentication is supported as described in Configure OAuth Connections.


If you experience issues with the Zoho Books connector, these troubleshooting steps are recommended:

  1. Ensure the Zoho Books connection is successful by using the Test button in the configuration screen. If the connection is not successful, the error returned may provide an indication as to the problem.

  2. Check the operation logs for any information written during execution of the operation.

  3. Enable operation debug logging for Private Agents to generate additional log files and data.

  4. Enable connector verbose logging for this connector using this specific configuration entry of logger name and level:

    <logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.ZohoBooks" level="TRACE"/>
  5. Check the agent logs for more information.
