NetSuite Connector 10.0 Examples - Mule 4

This example shows how to use the NetSuite Connector Search operation to obtain the Account records with internal IDs that are less than the value of the query parameter.

This example requires that at least one basic account meets the search condition in the NetSuite instance.

The following screenshot shows the Studio app flow for this example:

App flow for the Account basic search example
Figure 1. Account basic search app flow in Studio

Creating this example involves creating a new Mule project and configuring HTTP Listener, the NetSuite Connector Search operation, and two Transform Message components.

Configure HTTP Listener

Configure HTTP Listener to initiate a Mule flow when a call is made to the /account path on localhost port 8081:

  1. Create a new Mule project in Studio.

  2. In Studio, click HTTP and drag the Listener operation to the canvas.

  3. Change the display name of the Listener operation to /account.

  4. On the Listener properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  5. Accept the defaults.

  6. On the Listener properties window, set the Path field value to /account.

Add the NetSuite Connector Search Operation

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select NetSuite and drag the Search operation to the right of Listener.

  2. Change the display name of the Search operation to Search Account.

  3. On the Search properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  4. Accept the defaults.

  5. On the Search properties window:

    • In the Key field, select ACCOUNT_BASIC.

    • Set the Page Size field value to an integer value between 10 and 1000.

Add the First Transform Message Component

This Transform Message component contains the search criteria for the flow:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, drag a Transform Message component to the left of Search.

  2. Change the name of the Transform Message component to Search Criteria.

  3. Click the Transform Message component.

    The Output column displays the metadata of the AccountSearchBasic object.

  4. Under the internalid object in the metadata:

    • Double-click the operator field and set its value to "LESS_THAN".

    • Double-click the searchValue field and set its value to attributes.queryParams["internalId"].

      Setting the searchValue field value to attributes.queryParams["internalId"] directs the connector to use the value of the internalId query parameter as the search criteria.

    The DataWeave code should look like this:

    %dw 2.0
    output application/java
    ---
    {
    	internalIdNumber: {
    		operator: "LESS_THAN",
    		searchValue: attributes.queryParams["internalId"]
    	}
    } as Object {
    	class : "org.mule.module.netsuite.extension.api.AccountSearchBasic"
    }

Add the Second Transform Message Component

This Transform Message component converts the response to JSON format:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, drag a Transform Message component to the right of Search.

  2. Change the name of the Transform Message component to Response to JSON.

  3. Click the Transform Message component and set the output to application/json.

    %dw 2.0
    output application/json
    ---
    payload

Run the App

To run the app:

  1. Start the Mule app.

  2. Call http://localhost:8081/account?internalId=5 to retrieve the Account records with internal IDs that are less than 5.

This example shows how to use the Search operation to obtain the customer records that were created after 2015 and that are in the LEAD stage.

This examples requires that at least one customer record meets the search conditions in the NetSuite instance.

The following screenshot shows the Studio app flow for this example:

App flow for the Customer advanced search example
Figure 3. Customer advanced search app flow in Studio

Creating this example involves creating a new Mule project and configuring HTTP Listener, the NetSuite Search operation, three Transform Message components, and a For-Each scope.

Configure HTTP Listener

Configure HTTP Listener to initiate a Mule flow when a call is made to the /customer path on localhost port 8081:

  1. In Studio, click HTTP and drag the Listener operation to the canvas.

  2. Change the display name of the Listener operation to /customer.

  3. Select an existing global element or create a new one for the Listener operation.

  4. On the Listener properties window, set the path field value to /customer.

Add the NetSuite Connector Search Operation

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select NetSuite and drag the Search operation to the right of Listener.

  2. Change the display name of the Search operation to Search Customer Advanced.

  3. Select an existing global element or create a new one for the Search operation.

  4. On the Search properties window:

    • In the Key field, select CUSTOMER_ADVANCED.

    • Set the Page Size field value to an integer value between 10 and 1000.

Add the First Transform Message Component

This Transform Message component configures custom labels for the search results and specifies the search criteria for the flow:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, drag the Transform Message component to the left of Search.

  2. Change the name of the Transform Message component to Search Criteria.

  3. Click the Transform Message component.

    The Output column displays the metadata of the CustomerSearchAdvanced object.

  4. To configure the fields in the search results:

    1. Under CustomerSearchAdvanced, expand the basic object.

    2. Expand dateCreated.

    3. Double-click the customLabel field and set its value to "Created".

    4. Under the entityId object, double-click the customLabel field and set its value to "Entity ID".

    5. Under the stage object, double-click the customLabel field and set its value to Stage.

  5. To configure the search criteria for the flow:

    1. Under CustomerSearchAdvanced, expand the Criteria object.

    2. Expand the basic object.

    3. Under the dateCreated object, double-click the operator field and set its value to "AFTER".

    4. Double-click the searchValue field and set its value to attributes.queryParams["dateCreated"] as LocalDateTime {format: "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS"}.

      This setting converts the value of the dateCreated query parameter to the LocalDateTime format.

    5. Expand the stage object.

    6. Double-click the operator field and set its value to "ANY_OF".

    7. Double-click the searchValue field and set its value to [attributes.queryParams["stage"]].

      This setting converts the value from the stage query parameter to an array item.

The DataWeave code should look like this:

%dw 2.0
output application/java
---
{
	columns: {
		basic: {
			dateCreated: [{
				customLabel: "Created"
			}],
			entityId: [{
				customLabel: "Entity Id"
			}],
			stage: [{
				customLabel: "Stage"
			}]
		}
	},
	criteria: {
		basic: {
			dateCreated: {
				operator: "AFTER",
				searchValue: attributes.queryParams["dateCreated"] as LocalDateTime {format: "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS"}
			},
			stage: {
				operator: "ANY_OF",
				searchValue: [attributes.queryParams["stage"]]
			}
		}
	}
} as Object {
	class : "org.mule.module.netsuite.extension.api.CustomerSearchAdvanced"
}

Add a For-Each Scope

A For-Each scope processes each record on the list returned by the Search operation individually so that the records can be displayed on the console.

  1. From the Mule Palette view, drag a For-Each scope to the right of Search.

  2. Drag a Transform Message component inside the For Each box and replace the DataWeave code in the Transform Message Output column with this code:

    %dw 2.0
    output application/json
    ---
    {
    	entityId: payload.entityId,
    	dateCreated: payload.dateCreated,
    	stage: payload.stage
    }
  3. Drag a Logger component from the Mule Palette view to the right of Transform, inside the For Each box.

  4. Change the display name of the Logger operation to Log Customer.

  5. On the Logger properties window, set the Message field value to #[payload].

Add a Third Transform Message Component

This Transform Message component converts the response to JSON format:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, drag another Transform Message component to the end of the flow, outside the For Each box.

  2. Change the name of the Transform Message component to Response to JSON.

  3. Click Transform Message and set the output to application/json:

    %dw 2.0
    output application/json
    ---
    payload
  4. Start the Mule app.

  5. Call http://localhost:8081/customer?dateCreated=2015-02-02%2000:00:00.000&stage=LEAD.
