Automatically import transactions

I am trying to build a service which automatically applies rules to incoming transactions. My expectation was that YNAB would poll my linked accounts ~daily to import these transactions and that I would see them in the API as they were created.


In practice, I need to log in to the YNAB UI and click the import button for those transactions to be created.


Does anybody know how I can skip this step?

  • Magenta Inspector Unfortunately you're not currently able to trigger imports via the API. If you have a moment, would you mind submitting a Feature Request for this? It lets our development team know what's important to you. Thanks!

    And anyone else interested can do the same. For this or any other feature request. :)

  • Absolutely George . I've filed a feature request - don't hesitate to reach out if I can provide more context.

  • This feature would be greatly appreciated. 

    I'm trying to setup a notification service that would notify me if I have more than 10 transactions to be imported. This will help me not have to manually login to the UI to click import.

  • This feature would be fantastic - the direct import isn't working for my bank and I need to find another way to automate the upload of transactions using the API

    • Hi Charlie !

      This post is a little older so I wanted to re-post a link to our Feature Request. If you have a moment, please fill it out to let our team know exactly what you'd like to see moving forward! :)
