Use Searches to Audit Roles and Permissions

You can use searches to audit your NetSuite role permissions. NetSuite provides a simple role search you can use to find a particular role or set of roles, or to return a list of roles and their characteristics. For information about running simple searches, see Defining a Simple Search. You can also create advanced employee and role record saved searches to find information about role permissions. For example, you can verify permissions assigned to a role, or verify permissions assigned to an employee or an employee’s role. For information about auditing permissions, see Use Searches to Audit Roles and Use Searches to Audit Permissions By Employee. In addition to user interface searches, you can use the SuiteScript Search APIs to create and automate searches. For more information see Search APIs.


Role record searches do not support the nlapiLoadSearch(type, id) search API.
