Rest Web Services in NetSuite!!
Yes you read it right this time as your netsuite solution provider we want to give insights of future plan of netsuite’s new technical turnaround. We already know many of us who are experienced in NetSuite Implementation and Netsuite integration were waiting for the REST.
As per the warning provided by oracle netsuite that REST Web Services is a beta feature. The contents of this feature are preliminary and may be changed or discontinued without prior notice. Any changes may impact the feature’s operation with the NetSuite application.
The NetSuite REST web services provide an integration channel and upper hand to the netsuite customization that extends the capabilities of SuiteTalk. REST web services provide a REST-based interface for interacting with NetSuite. Using REST web services beta version, you can:
1: Use CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations to perform business processing on NetSuite records and to navigate dynamically between records.
2: Get and process the API definition and record metadata.
3: Execute NetSuite queries on records.
The main advantages of using REST in netsuite integration :
1: Simple access to records metadata. This includes user and company-specific metadata.
2: Easier handling of custom records and custom fields.
3: Easy to navigate API.
4: In contrast to RESTlets, you do not need to write, deploy, and run custom scripts
Limitations of the Beta Version
Consider the following limitations when working with the beta version of the REST web services.
1:Enumeration values must be provided and are returned in the SuiteScript internal format. This is the format used by Record.getValue(options) and Record.setValue(options) functions.
2:Query only returns record IDs and HATEOAS links.That is, query results have a form of
non-expanded references. Additionally, you can only use body fields in query condition
3:Making queries on transactions and certain other record types is not supported.
To use REST web services, the REST Web Services (Beta) feature must be made available to your account. After the feature is made available to your account, you can enable it at Setup > Company > Setup Tasks > Enable Features, in the SuiteTalk (Web Services) section, on the SuiteCloud subtab
To assign the necessary permissions to a role:
1. Go to Setup > Users/Roles > User Management > Manage Roles.
2. Locate the role you want to modify. Click the corresponding Edit or Customize link.
3. On the Permissions subtab, click Setup & In the Permission list, select REST Web Services.
4. In the Level list, select Full, then Click Add, then On the Permissions subtab, click Reports.
