Whichever employee you use will be tied to the Zuar Runner Integration record via an Access Token.
From NetSuite’s top menu, click Lists > Employees > New.
Complete the form with the information required by your organization (Name, Email, Subsidiary, etc).
On the Access tab, set up a password based on your organization’s policies. Store this password securely for use with Zuar Runner.
Under Roles, assign the
Mitto User Role(this role is from the bundle you installed earlier).

USER: (the Zuar Runner employee/user you created previously)
ROLE: Mitto User Role

Create NetSuite Jobs in Zuar Runner¶
Using the values retrieved during the one-time NetSuite setup above, we next configure Zuar Runner jobs to download your NetSuite data.
In Zuar Runner, select Add Job on the left sidebar. Select NetSuite CRM from the list of plugins.
Enter the information you gathered from the one-time NetSuite setup above into the Zuar Runner NetSuite wizard. Your NetSuite
ACCOUNT IDshould be entered into the Account field.
The next step asks you to select which NetSuite jobs to add to a sequence. You can choose to Enable All the jobs or you can Disable All to select individual jobs you want to create. Select Next after you have chosen which jobs you want to add.
On the next screen, specify the where NetSuite data should be stored.
Local Database (recommended): Mitto’s internal PostgreSQL database
Redshift: AWS-hosted database
Custom: Specify the connection string of the destination database
The schema is a database organization mechanism which groups database objects (tables, views, etc.) and can be used for security purposes.
The default schema is:
Prefix table names
Checking option box will prefix each table created by the Zuar Runner NetSuite jobs with
netsuite. This is convenient when tables are not being created in a NetSuite-specific schema.
Congratulations! You have just connected NetSuite to Zuar Runner.
A sequence with one or more jobs will be created by Zuar Runner’s NetSuite wizard. If you run the sequence, all jobs (potentially several hundred) will be executed and may take a long time. You can run individual jobs if you don’t want Zuar Runner to download all NetSuite data at once.
Next, schedule your NetSuite jobs so the data stays updated.
NetSuite Saved Searches¶
You will often want to get data from a NetSuite Saved Search. Refer to the Saved Search documentation for more details.
