From Version To Version

10.x

11.x

Changes in This Release

In NetSuite Connector 10.x, the connector resolved metadata by receiving Java objects as input, and converting those objects internally to XML, so that NetSuite could understand it. In NetSuite Connector 11.x, XML metadata is resolved directly without the need for conversion.

Because of this modification, the input and output metadata for connector operations has changed and is now equivalent to the request and response bodies of the corresponding SOAP API operations. You can use DataSense explorer in Studio to drag and drop the metadata fields, which generates their corresponding namespaces and tags automatically.

Version 11.x also eliminates the REST-based operations.

Upgrade Steps

If you are upgrading from an earlier version of the connector, you can click the Updates Available pop-up Message in the bottom right corner of Anypoint Studio and follow the prompts.

You can also follow these steps to perform the upgrade:

  1. In Anypoint Studio, create a Mule project.

  2. In Mule Palette, click Search in Exchange.

  3. In Add Dependencies to Project, enter netsuite in the search field.

  4. In Available modules, select NetSuite and click Add.
    Studio upgrades the connector automatically.

  5. Click Finish.

  6. In the pom.xml file for the Mule project, verify that the NetSuite Connector dependency version is 11.0.0.

Post Upgrade Tasks

  • Ensure that your configurations use either Request Based or Token authentication.

  • Verify that your error handling is updated to work with the minor changes in error codes in this version of the connector.

  • Refer to Changed Operations and Changed Sources for updated operations and sources.
    If your integration uses any of the affected operations and sources, make the necessary changes to comply with the new interfaces.

  • Because the package of the exposed classes was changed to com.mulesoft.connector.netsuite.extension.api, you must update all DataWeave mappings that create objects for operation inputs.
    You must also update mappings that transform object outputs.

Verify the Upgrade

After you install the latest version of the connector, verify the upgrade:

  1. In Studio, verify that there are no errors in the Problems or Console views.

  2. Verify that there are no problems in the project pom.xml file.

  3. Test the connection to verify that the operations work.

Revert the Upgrade

If you must revert to your previous version of NetSuite Connector, change the mule-netsuite-connector dependency version 10.0.0 in the project’s pom.xml to the previous version. Additionally, revert any changes made in the operations to their previous state.
