Find SuiteCommerce Image (Bundle Installation Guide)

Every SuiteCommerce website has product images. When an image is uploaded to the file cabinet, it needs to be labeled using the naming conventions defined in the SuiteCommerce website setup record. When the file is saved, the image is automatically associated with the item record in a sublist. SuiteCommmerce administrators are unable to run a saved search on the associated image easily because it exists as a sublist on the item record. Anchor Group created a bundle that allows you to run saved searches on the item record to find the associated images on the product page. This bundle is needed by any company that uses SuiteCommerce or SuiteCommerce Advanced.

Common Use Cases:

  • Find items displayed on the website that don't have a product image
  • Monitor when an associated image gets disconnected when a user changes the reference field (e.g. item name/number). This would cause the naming convention of the image file to not be correct and the image would no longer be associated.
  • Create workflows to assign to SuiteCommerce administrator to ensure all new products have webstore images
  • Find the URLs of the associated images

Here is a sample saved search that highlights items/products that are missing an associated image when the item is set to display to the webstore.

Here is a process flow map of the bundle for more technical NetSuite administrators or developers.



How to Install the Find SuiteCommerce Image Bundle?

Please use the following steps to install the bundle and get it into your NetSuite environment. This is a self-installation guide so you will be able to complete it on your own.

Step 1: Get the Bundle Provisioned to Your NetSuite Account (Fill out the Request Form)

You will need to fill out this form in order to get this bundle provisioned to your NetSuite account. This will notify the Anchor Group team to get the bundle provisioned to your account. Once you complete this form, it may take up to 1 business day to get provisioned. You will receive an email confirmation within 1 business day that it has been provisioned. Then you can proceed to Step 2. You will be unable to proceed to step 2 until the bundle is provisioned to your NetSuite account.

Step 2: Install the Bundle

Navigate to Search and Install Bundle.

search and install bundle

Then either search for the Bundle ID or the bundle name and press 'enter'.

Bundle Name: Find SuiteCommerce Image

Bundle ID: 455140

search for bundle name or bundle id

Click on the hyperlink and click 'INSTALL'

Install bundle

Next you will be shown a page to review the bundle one more time. Click "Install Bundle"

There is a pop-up notification when installing bundles in NetSuite so you need to confirm and click "OK".

pop up confirm

The bundle may take a few minutes to finish installing. You can see the status column of the "Installed Bundles" page. Every couple of minutes, refresh this page until the status of the "Find SuiteCommerce Image" row has a checkmark. Then proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Deploy the SuiteScript and Run Update

In the bundle, there is a SuiteScript that runs to perform a mass update in order to pull the associated image URL onto the custom item fields that were added during the bundle installation. If you go to your item record, you will see a field called "SuiteCommerge Image". The SuiteScript will run and update this field so that you can run the reports/saved searches on this data.

The SuiteScript is set to run every Sunday by default so during the initial installation, you may want to run it manually for the first time so you don't have to wait. Alternatively, you can change the frequency of the SuiteScript to run more frequently.

In order to manually run the Script, go to the script deployment. The easiest path is by going to COMMERCE > FIND SUITECOMMERCE IMAGE > ITEM TAGGING SCRIPT. Make sure to NOT click 'new'.

navigate to script deployement

Then you will need to click "edit" and change the status from "scheduled" to "testing" which will allow you to manually trigger the script. Next hover over the "down" arrow and click "Save and Execute".

script deployment save and execute
IMPORTANT STEP: After the script finishes and you confirm it is successful, you will need to "edit" again and switch the status back to scheduled. But this time, just click "Save.

In the meantime, while your items are updating you can start opening some item records to confirm it is working properly.

To get familiar with the new field on the item record and to begin testing, you will want to find an item that is displayed in webstore, find where the "SuiteCommerce Image" field is on the item record, and make sure to test using an item record that has an associated image on it. See the image below as an example.

Step 4: Review Navigation and Saved Searches

After the map reduce SuiteScript has been completed (runs on a scheduled basis), you can run your saved searches and begin leveraging the built-in saved searches and navigation.

If you hover over the COMMERCE tab, you will now see there is a new center category called "Find SuiteCommerce Image" with links to the built-in saved searches. You can use these saved searches or edit them to your preferences.

Here is one example that is built in which runs a saved search on the associated image with items displayed on the website. You will notice that there is highlighting built into the search to make it easier to identify items that are displayed on the web store but are missing a product image.

Step 5: Finish Testing in Sandbox and then Perform the Installation in Production

After you complete this installation process in your sandbox account, you will want to perform it again in your production account. Back to Step 1!

Once you have completed the installation process for your production account, that's it! You've finished setting up the Associated Image SuiteCommerce Bundle and can begin resolving missing item images.
