Warning: This project is undergoing active development and is not yet production-grade. Please mail the author if you want to find out more

Connects NetSuite to a database to transfer information to and fro.


This project requires Python 3+.

  1. Download this project and use it (copy it in your project, etc).

  2. Install it from pip.

     $ pip install netsuite-db-connector


To use this connector you'll need connect to a NetSuite account via Token-based Authentication (TBA).

First, setup TBA credentials using environment variables.

# TBA credentials
export NS_ACCOUNT=xxxx
export NS_CONSUMER_KEY=xxxx
export NS_TOKEN_KEY=xxxx
export NS_TOKEN_SECRET=xxxx

Here's example usage.

import os
import sqlite3
from netsuitesdk import NetSuiteConnection
from netsuite_db_connector import NetSuiteExtractConnector, NetSuiteLoadConnector

def ns_connect():
    NS_ACCOUNT = os.getenv('NS_ACCOUNT')
    NS_TOKEN_KEY = os.getenv('NS_TOKEN_KEY')
    nc = NetSuiteConnection(account=NS_ACCOUNT, consumer_key=NS_CONSUMER_KEY, consumer_secret=NS_CONSUMER_SECRET,                   token_key=NS_TOKEN_KEY, token_secret=NS_TOKEN_SECRET)
    return nc

ns = ns_connect()

dbconn = sqlite3.connect('/tmp/ns.db', detect_types=sqlite3.PARSE_DECLTYPES|sqlite3.PARSE_COLNAMES)
x = NetSuiteExtractConnector(ns=ns, dbconn=dbconn)


y = NetSuiteLoadConnector(ns=ns, dbconn=dbconn)

# do some transformations and populated vendor bills related load tables
for vendor_bill_external_id in y.get_vendor_bill_external_ids():
    internal_id = y.load_vendor_bill(vendor_bill_external_id=vendor_bill_external_id)
    print(f'posted vendor_bill_id {vendor_bill_external_id} for which NS returned {internal_id}')

Integration Tests

To run unit tests, you will need to connect to a real NetSuite account. Set the following environment variables before running the integration tests:

# TBA credentials
export NS_ACCOUNT=xxxx
export NS_CONSUMER_KEY=xxxx
export NS_TOKEN_KEY=xxxx
export NS_TOKEN_SECRET=xxxx
