This page describes how to use Census with NetSuite.

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Getting Started

In this guide, we will show you how to connect NetSuite to Census and create your first sync.

Prerequisites

This process involves several steps - please set aside 15-30 minutes to complete it. NetSuite configuration can be complex, so if you have any questions please contact us via [email protected] and we'll help you tailor these instructions to your needs.

1. Create an Integration Record for Census

    1.
    Visit the integrations page or use the global search to look for and navigate to: page: Manage Integrations
    1.
    Create a new integration with the follow properties:
      Give it a name that you'll recognize, such as Census
      Check TOKEN-BASED AUTHENTICATION
      Leave OAuth 2.0 AUTHORIZATION CODE GRANT unchecked
      Leave TBA: AUTHORIZATION FLOW unchecked
      Set State to Enabled
    2.
    Click Save when finished.
    3.
    Copy and paste the CONSUMER KEY / CLIENT ID and CONSUMER SECRET / CLIENT SECRET to a password manager. You'll need those later to paste into Census.

2. Enable Token Based Authentication

    1.
    Global search to page: Enable Features
    2.
    Navigate to the tab SuiteCloud > Manage Authentication
    3.
    Make sure Token Based Authentication is checked
    4.
    Save

3. Create a Token Role

The Administrator user you're using with NetSuite and Census also needs "Token Role".
    1.
    Global search to page: New Role
    2.
    Name the role: Census
    3.
    Check WEB SERVICES ONLY ROLE
    4.
    Check DO NOT RESTRICT EMPLOYEE FIELDS
    5.
    For multi-subsidiary NetSuite users, check ALL under ACCESSIBLE SUBSIDIARIES
    6.
    Under Permissions > Setup, add the following permissions:
      Access Token Management: Full
      Custom Body Fields: Full
      Custom Column Fields: Full
      Custom Entity Fields: Full
      Custom Fields: Full
      Custom Item Fields: Full
      SOAP Web Services: Full
      User Access Token: Full
7. Under Permissions > Lists, Give your Role the appropriate permissions for the NetSuite objects you'll be updating. For example, to update Customers, you'll want to give this role the Lists > Customers (Full) permission.

4. Add Token Management Permissions

    1.
    Global search to page: Employees
    2.
    Edit the employee record of the Admin user you will be using Census with.
    3.
    Navigate to Access > Roles and add the Token Role you just created above.

5. Create Access Tokens

    1.
    Global search to page: Access Tokens
    2.
    Click New Access Token
    3.
    Select the application and role we created above, then press Save
    4.
    Copy and paste the new Token ID and Token Secret to your password manager or file. We'll use it below.
Note: Netsuite permission changes to a role or user do not occur immediately. These changes typically take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, and they can even take up to 24 hours to go into effect. If you are confident that you have given Census the correct permissions above and experience an error setting up the connection, we recommend waiting for these changes to go into effect before testing the connection again.

6. One more thing: NetSuite Account ID

The last bit of information you’ll need is your NetSuite Account ID:
    1.
    Global search to page: Company Information.
    2.
    Your ACCOUNT ID will be found on that page. Copy and paste it as well.

7. Finally, Configure Your Census Connection

    1.
    Now in Census, add a new Service Connection.
    1.
    Paste the Account ID of your NetSuite Account, as well as the Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, Token ID and Token Secret created above.
    1.
    Click Save Connection, and click Test to double check your connection information.
You're ready to start using Census to load data from your warehouse to NetSuite! If you have any trouble with these steps, please don't hesitate to reach out to: [email protected] and we'll help get this setup.

🏎 Sync Speed

NetSuite's API speed and rate limitation are complex and are tied to the plan you are on but you can expect a speed of ~500 records sync / minute on their base plan,

Records sync / Minute
NetSuite
500
Please note that you can contact your Customer Success Manager at NetSuite to increase your NetSuite account API concurrency to increase the records sync speed.
