Note: We’ve renamed our SmartConnectors to Integration Apps.
Support for connecting multiple Walmart account to a single NetSuite account
With this feature, you can connect multiple Walmart accounts to a single Netsuite account and avoid managing customers, orders, fulfillment, and inventory levels across multiple Walmart accounts.
Connecting an additional Walmart account to a single NetSuite account can be accomplished in minutes via a self-installation UI wizard. For each additional Walmart account you connect, the Walmart Connector for NetSuite adds all the data flow (Order Sync, Fulfillment Sync, Inventory Sync, Pricing Sync, and Billing sync) in your integrator.io account along with default mappings and flow settings.

Impact of this feature on existing customers
In order to deploy these changes for our existing customers, we will be making the following changes into your NetSuite records and saved searches:
- Addition of Walmart Account: Account Id parameter in saved searches Criteria
In the following saved searches related to your Walmart account in NetSuite, a new criterion (Walmart Account: Account Id) has been included. The new criteria help the connector to differentiate between the information associated with different Walmart accounts.
- Celigo Walmart Auto Billing Export Search
- Celigo Walmart Fulfillment Export Search
- Celigo Walmart Inventory Export Search
- Celigo Walmart Kit Inventory Export Search
- Celigo Walmart Pricing Export Search
- Addition of the WALMART ACCOUNT field in Sales Order record
A new field, WALMART ACCOUNT, will be added to all open orders in your accont. The field exists in the eTail tab of the sales order record in NetSuite. Any order that has been closed or fulfilled before implementing this change will remain unaffected.
- Addition of the WALMART ACCOUNT field in the Item/Inventory/Kit Inventory record
A new field, WALMART ACCOUNT, will be added to all active items in your account. The field exists in the eTail tab of the Item/Inventory/Kit Inventory record in NetSuite. This field allows you to select the Walmart account configured in your connector. The item then gets associated with the selected account.
By default, all active items in your account, with eTail channel assigned as Walmart, will be assigned to the present Walmart account in use.
Support for Token-Based Authentication (TBA)
With this release, Walmart-NetSuite connector supports Token Based Authentication (TBA) which uses revocable tokens instead of username and password. Also, TBA is a more secure way of connecting to NetSuite. Another advantage of using TBA is that unlike passwords that expire after an interval, the Tokens do not expire and can be revoked if required to control access by an application.
As a user, you can choose between basic and token-based authentication at any point in time and update your connection accordingly. Once you have configured your NetSuite Account Credentials using the Basic authentication type, you can go to the Connections option, locate the NetSuite Connection and click the Edit icon. The connection page is displayed. From this page, select the Authentication type value as Token and enter the required information.
