Distribute and discover SuiteCloud applications and customisations

What is NetSuite SuiteCloud Platform Application Distribution?

NetSuite SuiteCloud Platform Application Distribution is a core component of the SuiteCloud Development Framework (SDF) that provides an efficient way to package, deploy, update and advertise NetSuite applications developed in-house and by ISV partners. The SuiteApp Marketplace and SuiteApp.com feature hundreds of certified third-party and NetSuite-built applications that deliver extended or specialised product functionality to power growing businesses.

Reliable and Efficient Deployment Processes

DevOps teams have full control over a streamlined workflow that ensures every application and customisation a company selects has been validated and includes all dependent components for reliable delivery of custom functionality.

I’ve used eight different ERP systems—from SAP to QuickBooks Online. NetSuite is perfect. It’s not too complex, not too simple. It’s flexible and powerful, but still easy to use.

Integrated Distribution

Project Validation

Before deploying and distributing customisations or applications, developers can use SDF to validate all aspects of their projects, including file dependencies, object definitions and structure — and catch errors before going live.

Software Control Centre

SuiteCloud provides a centralised environment to manage the distribution of applications and packaged customisations to accounts. ISVs can also use the Control Centre to publish and manage availability of their products to end customers from the SuiteApp marketplace and SuiteApp.com(opens in new tab).

Customisation Objects

Developers can use the SuiteCloud framework to define, package and distribute translatable XML-based objects that represent any custom NetSuite element such as a record, user role, email template, navigation item and more.
