tNetsuiteInput Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tNetsuiteInput running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tNetsuiteInput component belongs to the Business and the Cloud families.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products.

Basic settings

Connection Component

Select a tNetsuiteConnection component to reuse its connection details to set up the connection to the NetSuite server.

With a tNetsuiteConnection selected, the settings related to connection setup will not be displayed.


Enter the WebService URL required to connect to the NetSuite server.

API version

Select the version of the NetSuite API you are connecting to.

As of version 7.1, API versions 2014.2 and 2016.2 have been deprecated.

E-mail and Password

Enter your user credentials to access the NetSuite SOAP service.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.


Enter your NetSuite role ID.


Enter your NetSuite web services account number (also called account ID).

Application ID

Enter the NetSuite application ID generated for your account.

An application ID is required starting from NetSuite version 2015 and above. You can find your application ID or create a new one on NetSuite's Manage Integration page.

Record Type

Click the [...] button next to the field to open a dialog box, and then select a record type you want to retrieve or select the Use custom object check box and specify a custom record type in the Object Name field.

Schema and Edit schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.


Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only.


Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs.


Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the Repository Content window.

Information noteWarning:

The schema of this component is dynamically filled with columns corresponding to the NetSuite service fields, which vary depending on the Record Type selected. You can delete columns that are not relevant to your operation, but do not rename any schema columns or this may cause execution errors.

Search conditions

Define search conditions to match fields for data retrieval. Click the [+] button to add as many rows as you need, each row for a condition, and define each of your conditions:

  • Field: select a field to search based on the condition.

  • Operator: select an operator for the field search condition.

  • Value: enter the value for the field search condition.

  • Value 2: enter the second value for the field search condition, if relevant depending on the operator you select.

Advanced settings

Body fields only

Select this check box to retrieve only body fields; clear this check box to retrieve body fields and sublist values.

See bodyFieldsOnly for related information.

Information noteNote:
  • Be sure to clear this check box if you also want to retrieve sublist values in addition to values in the body fields.
  • Selecting this check box improves the performance significantly.

Enable customizations

Select this check box to instruct the component to retrieve customizations - custom record types and custom fields. With this option enabled, custom record types will be retrieved and can be selected in the Record Type dialog box, and custom fields will be retrieved and included into the schema.

This option is enabled by default. You can disable it if you don't need custom record types or custom fields.

Information noteNote: Transactional custom body fields for these transactions are not supported: Assembly Unbuild, Bin Putaway Worksheet, Bin Transfer, Paycheck, and Work Order.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at the Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables 

NB_LINE: the number of rows processed. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.


Usage rule

This component is usually used as a start component in a Talend flow and it requires an output component.
