How to Store RESTlet Response in NetSuite WMS State

I’m currently working on a NetSuite WMS project and I’ve hit a roadblock. I need to store the response from a RESTlet into the state within a mobile action. My RESTlet is set up and returning the expected result, but I’m unsure how to capture this response in the mobile action’s state for later use.

The RESTlet returns a simple object { mypo: result }, and I’ve set up an output parameter in the mobile action. However, the step to actually store this response in the state is where I’m struggling.

I’ve reviewed the documentation and tried to configure the action accordingly, but I’m missing something. If anyone has experience with this process or can offer some insight into what I may be doing wrong, your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

there is no such function as setState I think you are refering to react function but here I am talking about the netsuite wms state

I understand your frustration! Storing RESTlet responses in mobile action state can be tricky, but I’m here to help. Let’s break down the steps and identify the missing pieces:

1. RESTlet Setup:

  • You mentioned the RESTlet is returning { mypo: result }, which seems correct. This object structure aligns with the output parameter setup.
  • Is the output parameter named “mypo” or “result”? Ensure it matches the object key in the response.

2. Mobile Action State:

  • You’ve configured an output parameter in the mobile action, which is good.
  • Now, you need to use this parameter within the action’s flow to store the response in the state.
  • Here’s where things might get tricky depending on your preferred method:

Method 1: Action Script:

  • In the script editor, access the output parameter using its name (e.g., mypo or result).
  • Use the setState function to assign the parameter value to a desired state key. For example:
var mypoData = mypo; // or result, depending on your configuration
setState({ mypoResponse: mypoData });

Method 2: Flow Builder:

  • Drag an “Output Parameter” node onto the canvas.
  • Connect the RESTlet completion node to the “Output Parameter” node.
  • Click the “Output Parameter” node and set its “Name” property to the desired state key (e.g., “mypoResponse”).

3. Accessing Stored Response:

  • After storing the response in the state, you can access it anywhere within the mobile action using the chosen state key.
  • For example, if you stored it as “mypoResponse”, you can use state.mypoResponse in scripts or expressions.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • Verify the output parameter name in both RESTlet and mobile action.
  • Check if the state key you’re using to store the response is accessible within the action’s scope.
  • If using scripts, ensure the code snippet with setState is executed after the RESTlet call completes.
  • Review the NetSuite documentation again, focusing on examples with state management and RESTlets.

Remember, the key is to bridge the gap between the RESTlet response and the mobile action state. Choose the method that best suits your workflow and double-check the configuration steps. If you’re still stuck, feel free to share any error messages or specific code snippets for further analysis.

I believe you’re just a step away from conquering this roadblock! Keep at it, and let me know if you need further assistance.
