Overview

DBSync's NetSuite connector is a highly customizable connector that has the ability to connect your NetSuite account with additional applications like CRM software's, e-Commerce platforms and various other systems.  As a NetSuite user, you can also use this connector to integrate NetSuite with another On-demand, On-premise or SaaS-based application such as MSCRM, Salesforce, SkuVault, and databases.The connector uses the SuiteTalk web service SOAP API to move data in and out of NetSuite platform. Integrating with NetSuite consists of web service calls using an XML request/response made over an HTTPS connection.

The NetSuite connector exposes all standard and custom objects available within NetSuite instance of the connected user through Trigger/Rule section of DBSync iPaaS. So while reading/ writing the data, the NetSuite connector passes the data for all fields that are mapped within the project.
