NetSuite Integration with Office 365, SharePoint and 150+
NetSuite data can be integrated and
synchronized codeless with various other data sources, on-premises or in the
cloud, using the Layer2 Cloud ConnectorEnterprise Edition via our NetSuite Data Provider. Please take a
look here for
supported systems and applications.
To connect to NetSuite data the data source entity must be configured as follows
in the Layer2 Cloud Connector Connection Manager:

configuration to connect to NetSuite data.
NetSuite Integration and Synchronization Specific Settings
Please note the following specific settings.
Choose "NetSuite" as the Data Provider for your data entity (source and / or
Example connection string with minimum required items:accountid=myAccountID; user=myUserID; password=myPassword
There are other parameters, like RoleID, that are optional.
No installation or modification is required on the NetSuite side.
SQL-like select statements are supported to query NetSuite data entities
with this provider.
You can map the resulting data fields to specific external fields in the
Layer2 Cloud Connector. Please take care about data types (simple type
conversions are supported).
Please enter an appropriate primary key (column with unique values),
depending on query (see data preview for this). It is often the InternalID or
You can use the connection for uni- or bi-directional synchronization. In
case of inserts (full CRUD) via external systems please take care of the primary
key and any additional mappings requireed to make it work (see Known Issues
section below for more information)
Data synchronization can be started manually in the Connection Manager, per
command line or scheduled in background by the Layer2 Cloud Connector Windows
Service. Only data changes are processed (no delete / bulk import).
No programming required for setup a connection and sync.
No need to open your local network for access from outside.
NetSuite Integration - Known Issues and Workarounds
NetSuite does have an SOAP service option, it is not currently compatible with
the Layer2 Beta SOAP provider.
With writing back to NetSuite with bi-directional,
you must be careful about which fields are mapped. In some cases, the field is
actually fed from a list or record, and if you don't include a mapped reference
to that list/record (typically styled as "fieldName_InternalID"), then the
update will fail. Also be aware per the Provider documentation, that the
InternalID (primary key) is required for Insert/Update/Delete
Step-by-Step Intros For NetSuite Data Integration and Synchronization
Just some interesting scenarios to sync NetSuite data with almost any other
system or application:
Sync with local SQL or SQL Azure for
Sync with Microsoft Exchange (on-premises or online) for notifications,
tasks, calendar events, mobile access and offline availability on any
Sync with 3rd party tools based on SQL databases like Oracle, mySQL or
Microsoft SQL Server.
