Installing and Setting Up SuiteCloud IDE Plug-in for Eclipse

Note:

As of NetSuite 2022.1, the SuiteCloud IDE Plug-in for Eclipse will still be supported, but it will not be updated with any new features. Consider transitioning to the SuiteCloud Extension for Visual Studio Code or the SuiteCloud IDE Plug-In for WebStorm.

The IDE plug-in is installed from within Eclipse. To use the IDE plug-in, download and install Eclipse, and add the IDE plug-in update site to the list of software updates to install.

Important:

When your NetSuite account is upgraded, your instance of IDE plug-in is not updated automatically. After your account upgrade, you must manually update the IDE plug-in to match the version of your NetSuite account. You may experience errors related to compatibility by using an older version of the IDE plug-in with the latest version of NetSuite. For more information, see Updating Eclipse for Use with SuiteCloud IDE Plug-in.
