Which exchange rate is leading

by Anonymous (Updated ‎30-03-2021 10:48 by Yıldırım VISMA )

Good morning,

We connect to using the API. In Blue10 users can approve invoices with an approval limit. This limit however depends on the currency the invoice is in. To make sure we use the right exchange rate to calculate the amount, we want to synchronize the exchange rates from

I'm looking into those, but see the option to add an EUR-USD rate and an USD-EUR rate, which can be different. Also there are different types of exchange rates, so one administration can have multiple active exchange rates for one currency.

How do we cope with this in the API. Is there an (easy) way to determine which exchange rate is the default rate?


Kind regards,


Accepted solution

One currency ID can only have one exchange rate with the same Currency / Currency  Type / Effective Date / Currency Rate at the same time. In this way, as it mentioned above, this can be fetched via

Currency exchange rates can be recorded any time for a particular currency.
Each record contains the date when the rate becomes effective.

When the next record for the same rate type is entered, the rate value becomes a historical rate and can be used as the effective rate for operations that take place between the two dates. Historical rates are stored in the database for all the financial years defined in the system. We do not recommend that you change the value of the exchange rate if any transactions were based on the historical rate.

You can use the historical rates for entering back-dated transactions and for calculating realized and unrealized gains and losses.
