CData Sync



Replicate multiple NetSuite accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for NetSuite is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple NetSuite connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple NetSuite accounts.

Configure NetSuite Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple NetSuite accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate NetSuite to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>Account Id=XABC123456;Password=password;User=user;Role Id=3;Version=2013_1;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>Account Id=XABC123456;Password=password;User=user;Role Id=3;Version=2013_1;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

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.

Configure Queries for Each NetSuite Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the NetSuite API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of NetSuite data:

REPLICATE SalesOrder;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple NetSuite accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_SalesOrder SELECT * FROM SalesOrder

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.SalesOrder SELECT * FROM SalesOrder

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

NetSuiteSync.exe -g MyProductionNetSuiteConfig.xml -f MyProductionNetSuiteSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar NetSuiteSync.jar -g MyProductionNetSuiteConfig.xml -f MyProductionNetSuiteSync.sql
