NetSuite Cmdlets

An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to NetSuite data. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access NetSuite tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for NetSuite is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with NetSuite. Below, you will find examples of using our NetSuite Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your NetSuite Data

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.

$conn = Connect-NetSuite  -Account Id "$Account Id" -Password "$Password" -User "$User" -Role Id "$Role Id" -Version "$Version"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the SalesOrder table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-NetSuite -Connection $conn -Table SalesOrder | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\mySalesOrderData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-NetSuite into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.

Deleting Data

The following line deletes any records that match the criteria:

Select-NetSuite -Connection $conn -Table SalesOrder -Where "Class_Name = Furniture : Office" | Remove-NetSuite

Inserting and Updating Data

The cmdlets make data transformation easy as well as data cleansing. The following example loads data from a CSV file into NetSuite, checking first whether a record already exists and needs to be updated instead of inserted.

Import-Csv -Path C:\MySalesOrderUpdates.csv | %{
  $record = Select-NetSuite -Connection $NetSuite -Table SalesOrder -Where ("InternalId = `'"+$_.InternalId+"`'")
    Update-NetSuite -Connection $netsuite -Table SalesOrder -Columns ("CustomerName","SalesOrderTotal") -Values ($_.CustomerName, $_.SalesOrderTotal) -Where ("InternalId = `'"+$_.InternalId+"`'")
    Add-NetSuite -Connection $netsuite -Table SalesOrder -Columns ("CustomerName","SalesOrderTotal") -Values ($_.CustomerName, $_.SalesOrderTotal)

As always, our goal is to simplify the way you connect to data. With cmdlets users can install a data module, set the connection properties, and start building. Download Cmdlets and start working with your data in PowerShell today!
