File and Folder Management in Bundles

You can use the Bundle Builder to include files and folders from the File Cabinet in a bundle. When a user installs the bundle, NetSuite installs the files and folders included in the bundle into the target account. You can use this feature to include any File Cabinet file in a bundle.

To include a file or folder in a bundle, you must first check the Available in SuiteBundles box on the file or folder record. The file or folder record then appears in the Bundle Builder.

The location where NetSuite installs files and folders in the target account depends on the type of source account:

Source Account Type

Installation Location

Sandbox

NetSuite installs the files and folders with the same path information as the source account. The installation location is the same for bundles installed from a sandbox account to another sandbox account, or for bundles installed from a sandbox account into a production account.

The Preview Install page for SuiteBundler displays the folder and file paths for the files included in the bundle. Use this information to determine the changes that the bundle makes to the files and folders in the target account.

Note:

This feature does not apply for bundles created in Version 2014 Release 2 or earlier and installed in Version 2015 Release 1 or later, or for bundles installed from a production account into another production account.

Production

If it does not already exist, NetSuite creates a folder called SuiteBundles in the target account and installs all files and folders into a subfolder that contains the bundle ID in the title.

For example, if you include a file named foo.js in a bundle with an ID of 100, NetSuite installs the file into the following File Cabinet directory in the target account:

/SuiteBundles/Bundle 100/foo.js

A user can access this file or folder with a descriptive URL that references the file and folder location. See Accessing Installed Files and Folders with Descriptive URLs.

The following screenshot shows an example of using the Bundle Builder to include folders in a bundle:
