This connector captures data from Oracle NetSuite into Flow collections.

It is available for use in the Flow web application. For local development or open-source workflows, provides the latest version of the connector as a Docker image. You can also follow the link in your browser to see past image versions.

This connector is based on an open-source connector from a third party, with modifications for performance in the Flow system.

You can find their documentation here, but keep in mind that the two versions may be significantly different.

Supported data resources

Flow captures collections from any NetSuite object to which you grant access during setup, including Transactions, Reports, Lists, and Setup.


  • Oracle NetSuite account
  • Allowed access to all Account permissions options
  • A new integration with token-based authentication
  • A custom role with access to objects you want to capture. See setup.
  • A new user assigned to the custom role
  • Access token generated for the custom role

    1. Navigate to Setup > Integration > Manage Integrations > New.

    2. Give the integration a name, for example, estuary-rest-integration.

    3. Make sure the State option is enabled.

    4. In the Authentication section, check the Token-Based Authentication checkbox.

    5. Save your changes.

    Your Consumer Key and Consumer Secret will be shown once. Copy them to a safe place.

  4. Set up a role for use with Flow.

    1. Go to Setup > Users/Roles > Manage Roles > New.

    2. Give the role a name, for example, estuary-integration-role.

    3. Scroll to the Permissions section.

    4. (IMPORTANT) Click Transactions and add all the dropdown entities with either full or view access level.

    5. (IMPORTANT) Click Reports and add all the dropdown entities with either full or view access level.

    6. (IMPORTANT) Click Lists and add all the dropdown entities with either full or view access level.

  5. Set up user for use with Flow.

    1. Go to Setup > Users/Roles > Manage Users.

    2. Find the user you want to give access to use with Flow. In the Name column, click the user's name. Then, click the Edit button.

    3. Find the Access tab.

    4. From the dropdown list, select role you created previously; for example, estuary-integration-role.

    5. Save your changes.

  6. Generate an access token.

    1. Go to Setup > Users/Roles > Access Tokens > New.

    2. Select an Application Name.

    3. Under User, select the user you assigned the role previously.

    4. Under Role, select the role you assigned to the user previously.

    5. Under Token Name, give a descriptive name to the token you are creating, for example estuary-rest-integration-token.

    6. Save your changes.

    Your Token ID and Token Secret will be shown once. Copy them to a safe place.

You now have a properly configured account with the correct permissions and all the information you need to connect with Flow:

  • Realm (Account ID)
  • Consumer Key
  • Consumer Secret
  • Token ID
  • Token Secret


You configure connectors either in the Flow web app, or by directly editing the catalog specification file. See connectors to learn more about using connectors. The values and specification sample below provide configuration details specific to the NetSuite source connector.
