Activating the NetSuite Connector

The activation of the integration connector can be done from BSS Setup. For creating a new NetSuite instance you must navigate to BSS > Setup > System Options > Systems Setup and select the Activate action for the NetSuite connector. You will be asked to set a unique name for the new instance that will be created.

You will then redirected to the "Edit Integration" page of the new instance where you must press Save for the creation to be completed.

The new instance is now available in the list of "Enabled Connectors". From this section, by selecting "Settings" you can configure your instance.

Defining your Installation URL and the Server Variables

You enter a meaningful name for the instance and then select "NetSuite Instance URL" from the Web API drop-down list and enter the Server Variables

Some variables from NetSuite cannot be mapped and therefore server variables must be used for this scope. The needed values are already defined in the installation but they should be overridden with correct values by using the provided text boxes. The below chapters include all defined variables along with an explanation and example for each one.

This table presents all available operations for the supported entities. In order to be able to sync an entity, the corresponding action must be checked.

Check Supported Push and Pull Methods for more details.

Synchronization Lookups

Lookups enable the mapping between entities that cannot be synced with the Integration Framework. For each of these entities, a table is available with all the available values in BSS. To map any of these entities and values the relevant value from the NetSuite entity must be set, in order to be used during synchronization.

For the NetSuite connector the following lookups must be setup:


Account Type → NetSuite Customer Category 

Currency → NetSuite Currency

Account Type Netsuite Customer Category 

Currency → NetSuite Currency


Product Type → Netsuite Product class 




Payment Type → Netsuite Payment class
