Validate the Phase 1 Spider

To validate the Phase 1 Spider, you will need to wait for the scheduled scripts to run, confirm the Phase 1 Spider is complete, validate the data and re-spider when necessary.

Step 1: Wait for the Scheduled Scripts to Run

Strongpoint's scheduled scripts run to document the connections between customizations. These scripts automatically stop processing after 10 minutes and reschedule themselves based on queue priority to enable other scripts to run. On average, it takes between 3 to 5 days to complete.

If you track the progress of the scripts, you may see that they “Fail” occasionally. The script will reschedule itself, skip and flag the record that it failed on. This is normal functionality and any issues that arise are captured during the data validation phase. 

Step 2: Confirm the Phase 1 Spider is Complete

The Phase 1 spider is complete when you see the following:

  • The Strongpoint Record Server Side Spider Scheduled Script is no longer running. 
  • Running the Strongpoint Search Customization to Make Join (By Join Proc) should not have any results. If there are items in the results, it means that the Strongpoint Make Joins Script is still running.

Step 3: Validate the Data and Run the Phase 2 Spider as Required

There are very large differences between NetSuite accounts. Therefore, the Strongpoint automated algorithms may not catch everything during the first pass. Strongpoint has a variety of tools to validate the data.

First: Set Up the Strongpoint Installation Settings

To set up the Strongpoint installation settings:

  1. Select the Strongpoint Tab.
  2. Choose Support.
  3. Select Installation Settings.
  4. Click View.
  5. Scroll down on the Spider Status subtab until you see the table of the documented objects.
  6. Sort by Spider Status by clicking on Spider Status at the top of the table. If there are any records in the Documented Records Overview section that show as Deduplicate or Re-Spider, re-spider as described below.
  7. Sort by the Documented Records Count by clicking on the Documented Record Count at the top of the table. If there are any zeros, re-spider as described below. No actions are required if the value is blank.

Second: Validate the Data

To validate the data:

  1. Go to the Strongpoint tab. 
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Choose Strongpoint Spider:
  • Update or Re-spider – Slow mode.
  • Select a Record type – pick the record type with the issue.
  • Do not re-spider the whole account in Slow mode since this will just start the process all over again.
Please note: just because some of the Data Validation searches return a result, it does not mean there is a problem. In most cases if there are many results for any give search, you can fix this by re-spidering the record type with the issue.

Next: Re-Spider

If you need to re-spider your account:

  1. Go to the Strongpoint tab.
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Choose Strongpoint Spider.
  4. Go to Update or Re-spider – Update Mode.
  5. Select a Record type. (Pick the record type with the issue.)
  6. Click Spider.
Note: Do not re-spider the whole account in Slow mode since this will just start the process all over again.
