Bulk update invoice line items

Updates multiple line items on an invoice. This is only possible when an invoice is still a draft.

Parameters

  • linesarray of objectsRequired

    The line items to update.

  • invoice_metadataobject

    Set of key-value pairs that you can attach to an object. This can be useful for storing additional information about the object in a structured format. Individual keys can be unset by posting an empty value to them. All keys can be unset by posting an empty value to metadata. For type=subscription line items, the incoming metadata specified on the request is directly used to set this value, in contrast to type=invoiceitem line items, where any existing metadata on the invoice line is merged with the incoming data.

Returns

The updated invoice is returned upon success. Otherwise, this call raises an error.

Stripe automatically finalizes drafts before sending and attempting payment on invoices. However, if you’d like to finalize a draft invoice manually, you can do so using this method.

Returns

Returns an invoice object with status=open.

Search invoices

Search for invoices you’ve previously created using Stripe’s Search Query Language. Don’t use search in read-after-write flows where strict consistency is necessary. Under normal operating conditions, data is searchable in less than a minute. Occasionally, propagation of new or updated data can be up to an hour behind during outages. Search functionality is not available to merchants in India.

Parameters

  • querystringRequired

    The search query string. See search query language and the list of supported query fields for invoices.

  • limitinteger

    A limit on the number of objects to be returned. Limit can range between 1 and 100, and the default is 10.

  • pagestring

    A cursor for pagination across multiple pages of results. Don’t include this parameter on the first call. Use the next_page value returned in a previous response to request subsequent results.

Returns

A dictionary with a data property that contains an array of up to limit invoices. If no objects match the query, the resulting array will be empty. See the related guide on expanding properties in lists.
