Setting a Default Role for a SOAP Web Services User

You can specify a default role for any user making SOAP web services requests. The permissions for the default role are determined as follows:


All standard roles have the SOAP web services permission by default when the SOAP web services feature is enabled. Custom roles, however, must be explicitly set to have SOAP web services permissions. For information about creating custom roles, see Customizing or Creating NetSuite Roles

To set a specific default role for a SOAP web services user:

  1. Go to Setup > Integration > Integration Management > SOAP Web Services Preferences.

  2. Select the user from the Name list.

  3. Select the default role to use for SOAP web services requests for this user.

    The internal ID for the selected role automatically populates the ID field.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Click Save.
