Create a Oracle NetSuite Activities source connection in the UI

The Oracle NetSuite Activities source is in beta. See the sources overview for more information on using beta-labeled sources.

Read the following tutorial to learn how to bring events data from your Oracle NetSuite Activities account to Adobe Experience Platform in the UI.

Getting started getting-started

This tutorial requires a working understanding of the following components of Experience Platform:

If you already have a valid Oracle NetSuite account, you may skip the remainder of this document and proceed to the tutorial on configuring a dataflow.

Read the Oracle NetSuite overview for information on how to retrieve your authentication credentials.

Connect your Oracle NetSuite account connect-account

In the Platform UI, select Sources from the left navigation to access the Sources workspace. You can select the appropriate category from the catalog on the left-hand side of your screen. Alternatively, you can find the specific source you wish to work with using the search option.

If you do not create a new account with your updated token, you may see the following error message: The request could not be processed. Error from flow provider: The request could not be processed. Rest call failed with client error, status code 401 Unauthorized, please check your activity settings.

Additional resources additional-resources

The sections below provide additional resources that you can refer to when using the Oracle NetSuite Activities source.

Mapping mapping

Platform provides intelligent recommendations for auto-mapped fields based on the target schema or dataset that you selected. You can manually adjust mapping rules to suit your use cases. Based on your needs, you can choose to map fields directly, or use data prep functions to transform source data to derive computed or calculated values. For comprehensive steps on using the mapper interface and calculated fields, see the Data Prep UI guide.

The fields displayed are dependent on the subscriptions that your Oracle NetSuite account has access to. For example, if you do not have access to billing, then you will not see the billing related fields.

Scheduling scheduling

When scheduling your Oracle NetSuite Activities dataflow for ingestion, you must select the following frequency and interval configuration:


While retrieving data, the Oracle NetSuite responds with the last modified or created date as a date format instead of a timestamp. Hence, the scheduling is limited to one day.

Once your have provided the values for your schedule, select Next.
