Linking Items in Magento 2
If the goal is to link items b/w NetSuite & Magento 2 without the item export flow, refer to this section.
The steps to creating items in the starter (previously "standard") edition would be as follows:
- Create the item in NetSuite and assign it an SKU #.
- Create the item in Magento 2 (using either of the two methods below, depending on the volume of items being created).
- If you typically create a large number of items at a time, a CSV export can be run from NetSuite and then imported to Magento 2. Using this process you could also map additional fields such as description, price, etc. to save time.
- If you create new items infrequently (say less than 20 new items per day) then instead of using CSV to import the new items from NetSuite to Magento 2 you would simply create the same item in Magento 2 and assign the same SKU as NetSuite and then populate all of the required fields (description, price, etc.)
- Once the items are loaded in both NetSuite and Magento 2 with matching SKU #'s, there is a one-step process that you run to permanently link the two so that the Inventory flow can accurately maintain stock counts. It's simply a button in the integrator settings that need to be clicked that starts the flow running.
