NetSuite Ruby SuiteTalk Gem

  • This gem will act as a wrapper around the NetSuite SuiteTalk WebServices API. Wow, that is a mouthful.
  • The gem does not cover the entire API, only the subset that we have found useful to cover so far.
  • Extending the wrapper is pretty simple. Check out the contribution help doc
  • NetSuite development is overall a pretty poor experience. We have a list of NetSuite Development Resources that might make things a bit less painful.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'netsuite'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install netsuite

This gem is built for ruby 1.9.x, checkout the 1-8-stable branch for ruby 1.8.x support.

Testing

Before contributing a patch make sure all existing tests pass.

git clone git://github.com/RevolutionPrep/netsuite.git
cd netsuite
bundle
bundle exec rspec

Usage

Configuration

Not sure how to find your account id? Search for "web service preferences" in the NetSuite global search.

NetSuite.configure do
  reset!

  # optional, defaults to 2011_2
  api_version   '2012_1'

  # optionally specify full wsdl URL (to switch to sandbox, for example)
  wsdl          "https://webservices.sandbox.netsuite.com/wsdl/v#{api_version}_0/netsuite.wsdl"

  # or specify the sandbox flag if you don't want to deal with specifying a full URL
  sandbox   true

  # often the netsuite servers will hang which would cause a timeout exception to be raised
  # if you don't mind waiting (e.g. processing NS via DJ), increasing the timeout should fix the issue
  read_timeout  100000

  # you can specify a file or file descriptor to send the log output to (defaults to STDOUT)
  log           File.join(Rails.root, 'log/netsuite.log')

  # login information
  email     'email@domain.com'
  password  'password'
  account       '12345'
  role          1111
end

Examples

# retrieve a customer
customer = NetSuite::Records::Customer.get(:internal_id => 4)
customer.is_person

# or
NetSuite::Records::Customer.get(4).is_person

# randomly assign a task
customer_support_reps = [12345, 12346]

task = NetSuite::Records::Task.new(
    :title => 'Take Care of a Customer',
    :assigned => NetSuite::Records::RecordRef.new(customer_support_reps.sample),
    :due_date => DateTime.now + 1,
    :message => "Take care of this"
)
