Support for Bundle Copy and Push Across Account Types

You can copy a customization bundle from one account to another. The ability to copy bundles is linked to the ability to deprecate bundles, meaning replacing a bundle with an updated version.

Bundle authors can push their bundles to a NetSuite account to which they have administrator access. This enables NetSuite resellers and independent software vendors to install bundles without having to log in to each of their customers' accounts.

Support for Managed Bundle Upgrade Across Account Types

When a managed bundle is installed, the installer agrees to subscribe to future updates at the discretion of the bundle's author. As updates are developed, they can be installed by the bundle author into the target accounts without any action required by the target account administrator. See Managed Bundles Overview and Upgrading Your Managed Bundle Install Base.

The following table illustrates support for managed bundle upgrade across account types. The term “Manual” indicates that an automated upgrade initiated by the bundle author is not supported, but a target account user can initiate a manual upgrade.
