Enable simple Fortnox integration

1.0.15 2022-05-12 15:55 UTC


Build Status


A simple Fortnox PHP package, including Laravel Service Provider for easy integration in Laravel.


The easiest way to install this package is through Composer.

composer require wetcat/fortie

Or add "wetcat/fortie": "^1.0" to your composer.json.

If you don't have Composer you should install it.


In laravel the easiest way to use Fortie is to add the ServiceProvider, in config/app.php add the following line to providers array. This is needed before any artisan commands are available.


return [

    'providers' => [







In Laravel you can publish the config file with php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Wetcat\Fortie\FortieServiceProvider" --tag="config", after this the file should be available in app/fortie.php. Use the details provided by Fortnox when you signed up.

The Access Token is not provided when signing up, you need to get that seperately using your Auth Code and Client Secret. Read more about this process here.

The configruation file should look something like this:


return [

  'default' => [

    // Your specific access token
    'access_token'   => '<your access token>',

    // Your specific client secret
    'client_secret'  => '<your client secret>',

    // The type you're sending
    'content_type'   => 'application/json',

    // The type you're accepting as response
    'accepts'        => 'application/json', 

    // The URL to the Fortnox API
    'endpoint'       => 'https://api.fortnox.se/3/',
    // Rate limit (number of requests per second)
    'rate_limit'  => 4,


Note that XML is not fully supported yet, the package can read and will attempt to translate the responses from Fortnox into XML structures, but when sending data to Fortnox it will always send in json.


When you've included the Service Provider you can then use dependency injection in your BaseController to make fortie available in all controllers.


use Wetcat\Fortie\Fortie;

abstract class Controller extends BaseController
    use AuthorizesRequests, DispatchesJobs, ValidatesRequests;

    protected $fortie;

    public function __construct(Fortie $fortie)
        $this->fortie = $fortie;


Just call $this->fortie->... to access Fortie.

class MyController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index()



Of course you can also inject Fortie into any Laravel controller method to limit application wide access to Fortnox.


use Wetcat\Fortie\Fortie;

class MyController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index(Fortie $fortie)




In Laravel the ServiceProvider takes care of setting up Fortie using the configuration file, if used outside of Laravel you need to instantiate Fortie using the configuration provided by Fortnox.

$fortie = new Fortie(

Access token

To get an access token (for use with your integration) you need to request it using a authroization-code.

In Laravel you can use the Artisan command to easily get the access token.

php artisan fortie:activate code=<your authorization code>


The package is set up with multiple providers, each provider is mapped towards a specific endpoint in the REST api. For example accounts are mapped to the accounts() method.

$arrayOfAccounts = $fortie->accounts()->all();

For details on the usage of all providers you should consult the Wiki.
