Configuring the Aria-NetSuite Connector

Overview


​NetSuite Bundle Deployment

The NetSuite bundle is an initial configuration package that pre-configures a NetSuite instance to integrate with Aria. Bundles are available in the NetSuite Bundle Repository. Once installed, all of the bundle's contents are automatically inserted into the selected NetSuite instance, making the Aria-NetSuite Connector functionality immediate once the configuration in Aria has been completed.

There are periodic updates to the bundle, and these updates can easily be deployed through NetSuite after they are released. Information about bundle updates is provided when a new bundle is released.
