Application Development: SuiteScript

Flexible Customisation without Limits

SuiteScript allows developers and administrators to create flexible business logic within NetSuite tailored to specific business needs—from sophisticated business processes to entirely new applications.

Built on industry-standard JavaScript that ensures portability and rapid developer productivity, SuiteScript enables full-featured application-level scripting capabilities throughout NetSuite. Supporting sophisticated procedural logic and featuring robust debugging capabilities, SuiteScript makes possible virtually limitless customisation and cloud application construction. Better yet, no matter what scripts you create within NetSuite, they migrate automatically with each NetSuite upgrade.
