Steps to create Custom Field in NetSuite:

In this article, we will go through the steps to create a custom field in NetSuite that we might need in our Boomi Integration.

Prerequisite: You must have access to NetSuite.

  1. Once you log in to NetSuite, choose the required Object (like sales orders, customers, products, etc). here I go with Sales Orders as shown below. Custom Field in NS - Sales Orders
  2. Choose any one Sales Order record from the list. Click on the ‘customize’ button on the right top corner as shown below, Custom Field in NS - SO Record
  3. For adding Header Level fields choose ‘New body field’, for line level fields choose ‘New column field’. Here, I want to add a header level field so I clicked on ‘new body field’.
  4. Provide the required details for Label, ID, Description, and select Type from the drop-down menu as shown below, Custom Field in NS - Transaction
  5. In the ‘Applies To’ section, make sure you have selected the required object. In my case, my object is a Sales order, so I check marked ‘Sales’ and then hit the save button as shown below. Custom Field in NS - Select an Object
  6. It will create a new custom field in the respective ‘Sales Order’ record. Then go back to that ‘Sales order’ record, and check for the newly added custom field ’NSTEST_CUSTOMFIELD_C’ in the ‘Custom’ section as shown below. Custom Field in NS - Custom
  7. Steps to Update/reimport NetSuite profile to validate the ‘custom field’.
