NetSuite REST Read

Overview

You can use this Snap to read records based on the Internal ID.


NetSuite REST Read Overview

Prerequisites

None.

Limitations

  • The Snap takes a longer time to fetch suggestions for the first call. Subsequent calls are faster as it fetches data from the cache, which refreshes every 60 minutes. Any updates to the metadata might take up to 60 minutes to reflect the data.
  • If you enable the expression for Record type, the Output fields suggestion does not work as expected.

    Workaround: To address this issue, consider the following workarounds:
    • Provide a value for the Record type using suggestions.
    • Hard code the static string to enable the use of Output fields suggestions.

Known Issues

  • The Snap does not display errors for the invalid columns in the Output fields property because the NetSuite API ignores the fields that are not part of the schema.

Snap Views

View Description Examples of Upstream and Downstream Snaps
Input This Snap has at the most one document input view. The entity from which you want to read the objects. Mapper
Output This Snap has at the most one document output view. This Snap displays records from the specified entity. Mapper
Error

Error handling is a generic way to handle errors without losing data or failing the Snap execution. You can handle the errors that the Snap might encounter when running the pipeline by choosing one of the following options from the When errors occur list under the Views tab. The available options are:

  • Stop Pipeline Execution Stops the current pipeline execution when the Snap encounters an error.
  • Discard Error Data and Continue Ignores the error, discards that record, and continues with the remaining records.
  • Route Error Data to Error View Routes the error data to an error view without stopping the Snap execution.

Learn more about Error handling in Pipelines.

Snap execution Dropdown list

  • Validate & Execute. Performs limited execution of the Snap and generates a data preview during pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only. Performs full execution of the Snap during pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled. Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.

Default value: Validate & Execute
