Integrate NetSuite Data in Your Informatica Cloud Instance

Use the CData JDBC Driver for NetSuite with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live NetSuite data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for NetSuite, you get live access to NetSuite data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to NetSuite through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the NetSuite data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the NetSuite JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to NetSuite through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData NetSuite Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for NetSuite. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:netsuite:Account Id=XABC123456;Password=password;User=user;Role Id=3;Version=2013_1;

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid NetSuite user credentials. In addition, the AccountId must be set to the ID of a company account that can be used by the specified User. The RoleId can be optionally specified to log in the user with limited permissions.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for more information on connecting to NetSuite.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the NetSuite JDBC Driver. Either double-click the .jar file or execute the .jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.netsuite.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for NetSuite\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.netsuite.NetSuiteDriver
  • Username: Set this to the username for NetSuite
  • Password: Set this to the password for NetSuite

Create a Mapping for NetSuite Data

With the connection to NetSuite configured, we can now access NetSuite data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for NetSuite to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the NetSuite table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live NetSuite data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for NetSuite and start working with your live NetSuite data in Informatica Cloud today.
