Content-Type header



This request contains an ExpenseItemizations parent element with an Itemization parent element for each included itemization. The Itemization parent element has the following child elements.

Itemization elements
Element Required (must contain value)? Description
ExpKey Y The expense type key for the expense. Expense Type Keys are returned in the ExpKey element by the Get Expense Group Configuration endpoint. The expense type key cannot be modified when updating expense entries.
Description Depends on configuration The description for the expense.
TransactionAmount Y The total amount of the itemization in the original currency, with up to three decimal places. Example: 123.654
PostedAmount Depends on configuration The amount of the itemization in the user’s reimbursement currency, with up to three decimal places. Example: 123.654. May vary from transaction amount if some of the expense is marked personal or if it has been converted to another currency. See Notes for more information.
Custom1 through Custom20 Depends on configuration The Expense Entry Form custom fields. Itemizations are child entries to the expense entry, and they share the custom fields. May be required depending on configuration. Refer to the Processes, Post Expense Report Data section of Expense Report for the steps necessary to gather required field information.
NOTE: If any of the custom fields are configured to contain list values, please refer to the Posting Custom List Items page for information on how to correctly submit list item values.
IsPersonal N Whether the expense entry is a personal expense. Personal expenses are not reimbursed in Concur Expense. Personal expenses cannot be itemized. Format: N

  • The update request must include the ExpKey and TransactionAmount fields. All other fields only need to be included if they were updated.
  • Update requests cannot change the ExpKey for an existing entry.
  • When handling foreign currency transactions, the CrnCode and TransactionAmount values should indicate the original transaction amount and currency. The PostedAmount value should contain the transaction amount converted into the posting currency (the user’s reimbursement currency). Concur will calculate the exchange rate for the expense based on these two fields.
