Upload File

The Upload File activity uses the the Oracle NetSuite File API to upload a file (FilePath) to a specific folder (FolderId).

After uploading the file, the activity outputs the file id of the file (FileId) and the status of the upload (success/failure information) in a ResponseStatus object (ResponseStatus). Both of these outputs can be used as input variables in subsequent activities (e.g., FileId in Download File and ResponseStatus in conditional logic).

❗️

Note

The maximum file upload size is 10MB per Oracle NetSuite documentation.

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Oracle NetSuite Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add the Upload File activity inside the Oracle NetSuite Scope activity.
  4. Create and enter a String and a FolderId variable for the Input properties.
  5. Create and enter a String and a File variable for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter a String and a FileId variable for the Output properties.
  7. Create and enter a String and a ResponseStatus variable for the Output properties.
