Set Workflow Permissions and Workflow Actions for this Action on the appropriate Setup page. For more information on how to set this, visit appropriate help pages:

Customer Mappings

Now, you should write a script for Customer Mappings or you can use the script attached below.
To define Customer Mappings Script

  • On tab Script give script a name (for example CustomerMappings).
  • Download Script from the following link (.py file iz zipped):
  • Unzip file on your computer, copy script text and fill out the appropriate text field (as depicted on Figure 7.4).
  • On tab Event, mark that the Script should execute on onCustomerMappings event.

Figure 7.4

Note that Integration is 100% customizable – you must write your own scripts based on business needs or use scripts listed on this page, otherwise, Integration will not work.

Custom Field Mappings

Now, you should write a script for Custom Field Mappings or you can use the script attached below.

  • go to SetupDevelopGlobal Scripts and click on Add New button.
  • On Script tab, define a script name (e.g. CustomFieldsMappings).
  • Download script from the following link (.py file iz zipped):
  • Unzip file on your computer, copy script text and paste into the script text field.
  • On Events tab, define that this script should execute on arriving from CRM and On Quote Fields Mappings event. (See Figure 7.5). Click Save.

Figure 7.5

Each of these scripts must be attached to an adequate Arrive From CRM event. Additional mappings (opportunity statuses, countries…) should be defined in SAP CPQ custom tables. Examples of defining such custom tables can be found in excel files, “NSTOCPQCOUNTRYMAPPING” and “OpportunityStatusMapping”. Examples of using them can be found in “UpdateNetSuite” and “CustomersMapping” scripts.

Sample custom tables for country and opportunity status mappings can be downloaded from the following locations:

Send document to Netsuite

In order to be able to send document SAP CPQ to Netsuite, you should write an Iron Python script and attach it to the custom action that you previously defined as well. Follow next step do implement this feature.

  • Go to SetupDevelopCustom Actions and click on Add New button. (See figure 7.6)

Figure 7.6
  • Fill out the fields on the displayed form with the appropriate data.
  • Download Custom Iron Python script from this link (.py file is zipped): Unzip the file, copy script text and paste into the appropriate field. (See figure 7.7)

Figure 7.7 - Define custom action
  • Save custom action

Now, you should set availability and permission for this custom action through Workflow. To find more details on how to set Workflow, visit Workflow Actions and Workflow Permissions help page.

User mappings

Netsuite and SAP CPQ users are mapped the first time you arrive from Netsuite to SAP CPQ (while opening or creating the quote). Only the first time that you arrive from Netsuite, you will be prompted to enter your SAP CPQ username, password and domain name. From that moment, your Netsuite and SAP CPQ users are mapped, and you do not need to enter data again.

That being said, there is no need to do manual mappings neither through SAP CPQ setup nor Netsuite setup.
