4. What Does Flashlight Document?

This chapter provides a comprehensive description of exactly what customizations are documented in the system.

Captured and Documented in the Customization Record

Flashlight captures the following critical metadata related to your account customizations:

  • Accounting/Setting Lists
  • Custom Records and Custom Record Fields
  • Custom Fields (i.e. Body, Item, Entity, Column, Item Number and Other Field)
  • Mass Updates (except for mass update schedule information)
  • Saved Searches (fields, criteria, joins with scripts/workflows and formulas)
  • Unlocked and Un-encrypted Script Records (i.e. Client, User Event, Scheduled, Suitelets and Workflow Action)
  • Locked Script Records (however related dependencies can be established)
  • NetSuite Preferences (Accounting Preferences, Company Preferences etc.)
  • Forms (Entry and Transaction)
  • Script Deployments
  • Script Library
  • SuiteCommerce Advanced folder files and all custom SS, SSP and JS files
  • User Roles
  • Workflows

Partial Documentation

The following NetSuite objects are partially documented by Flashlight. They are not fully documented due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • the record types do not have a NetSuite API that exposes the full customization data to Flashlight's spider
  • the records are standard objects which cannot be changed
