Attempting to create a new inventory item in netsuite. the target definition is set to insert

when i create the mapping itemid is marked as being required. which would make sense for an update but i wouldnt know the itemid in advance. it wont let me save the mapping without a value of some sort in there

when i try to run the package it fails with the following error

"Error occurred for record no = {0} :

You do not have permissions to set a value for element itemid due to one of the following reasons: 1) The field is read-only; 2) An associated feature is disabled; 3) The field is available either when a record is created or updated, but not in both cases."

am i misunderstanding what itemid is in this instance?

Thank you for contacting Skyvia Support.


According to NetSuite documentation, the ItemId column is required and should be mapped to the source's ItemId.

The column ItemId should contain Item's Name or Number. Please see the examples here:

Please try to check your ItemId column values in the Source and try to Import it again.


Should you have other questions, don't hesitate to reach out.
