OAuth 2.0

NetSuite supports OAuth 2.0, a robust authorization framework. OAuth 2.0 enables client applications to use a token to access NetSuite through REST web services, RESTlets, and SuiteAnalytics Connect. The application accesses the protected resources on behalf of a user who gave an explicit permission for the access. This method eliminates the need for integrations to store user credentials. Use OAuth 2.0 as an alternative to the Token-based Authentication feature. It is more straightforward to implement, because request signing is not required.

The OAuth 2.0 feature is for use with RESTlets, REST web services, and SuiteAnalytics Connect. It is not supported for SOAP web services.


OAuth 2.0 is the preferred authentication method. You should consider using OAuth 2.0 instead of TBA whenever possible.
