How NetSuite SuiteCloud Platform 2023.1 Boost the Business?

SuiteCloud offers robust platform tools and technologies for modifying, connecting, expanding, and controlling NetSuite accounts. Software developers and technical administrators make use of SuiteCloud. Thousands use it to customize their accounts and reap its benefits.    

NetSuite 2023 Release 1 includes several features that make it effortless to create and manage modifications. One can also combine it with other applications, and take advantage of the most modern Java platform capabilities.

SuiteTalk Web Services Introduces New REST Records 

SuiteTalk is a Web services integration solution for connecting third-party systems to NetSuite.   

Eight new standard REST records assist clients in using SuiteTalk REST Web Services. They help to completely link their NetSuite accounts with external systems and applications. NetSuite 2023 Release 1’s new REST records include:

• Authorization for vendor returns 

• Deposit  

• Client payment

• Item category

• Item description 

• Request fulfillment

• Purchase of a non-inventory item

• Non-stock resale item

NetSuite REST web services provide an integration route that increases Suite Talk’s capabilities. They give a REST-based interface to connect with NetSuite.

REST web services help you to: 

• Interact with NetSuite via a REST-based interface and execute business processing on NetSuite records  

• Browse dynamically between records, use CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) actions 

• Retrieve and process the API specification, as well as record information

• Run NetSuite queries on the records

Advantages of REST Web Services  

Primary advantages of REST web services are as follows:

• Easy access to metadata of records. This ensures availability of user and company- specific metadata 

• Smooth management of custom records and custom fields

• User-friendly API 

• Unlike RESTlets, you do not have to write, deploy, or run bespoke scripts 

Major Upgrade in SuiteCloud Visual Studio Code Extension 

SuiteCloud Extension for Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is a graphical user interface for creating NetSuite platforms using the SuiteCloud Development Framework (SDF). It is a framework for development and a mechanism for distribution. 

Validation of the SuiteCloud project: Developers may now use the SuiteCloud Development Framework (SDF) from within VS Code. This helps them in server-side validation of custom code modules.  

They can thus discover issues prior to project deployment. The validation process ensures an accurate definition of manifests, configurations, scripts, objects, dependencies, account settings, and others. Identification of mistakes in the process generates actionable console messages. 

Import account-specific custom record instances: Developers may require access to new or changed custom record instances defined within production and test accounts. Previously, retrieving the XML specification of each instance required a manual download. Now, SuiteCloud users can immediately access all custom record instances from the VS Code-based development environment with version 23.1. 

The Suite Cloud Command Line Interface (CLI) for Node.js:

This SuiteCloud SDK tool manages SuiteCloud project components as well as validates and deploys projects to your account.    

It also enables access to custom record instances within NetSuite accounts. It also offers capabilities for both the Node CLI and VS Code environments. 

Differentiate local and account files: Find and fix disparities between the local version and one in a target account. This happens while working with files in a local development environment. 

VS Code discovers variations inside an intuitive UI that highlights the precise differences. One can view them in a split-editor format for easy comparison. 

You can manage accounts and authIDs: You can define and edit authID fields. They include account name, user role, and URL. Developers can update these parameters directly from their local environments. This makes it easier to work with essential authentication data throughout the program lifecycle.

Eclipse Plug-In for SuiteCloud IDE

SuiteCloud IDE plug-in for Eclipse is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for NetSuite platform development.   

NetSuite 2023 Release 1 continues to support the SuiteCloud IDE plug-in for Eclipse New features are no longer part of the plug-in. Customers can switch from Eclipse to the SuiteCloud Extension for Visual Code. Or they can go for the SuiteCloud IDE Plug-In for WebStorm. 

SuiteCloud CLI for Java

SuiteCloud CLI now supports Java 17 and Oracle JDK Version 17. This is to ensure that apps managing SDF projects adhere to the most recent Java standards.
