As of November 8, 2021, new users are only able to use the NetSuite2.com (Netsuite Analytics) data source. Existing users can continue to access the NetSuite.com (Netsuite) data source, but it is no longer being updated.
All users are encouraged to switch to NetSuite2.com.
More information can be found in the "New Accounts and Access to the Connect Data Source" document.

This is a step-by-step tutorial for creating a NetSuite Analytics connection.
