How to save un deployed work in sandbox before Netsuite upgrade

Hello

Our Netsuite upgrade is scheduled for Oct 17 2021. We have a uncompleted project in SANDBOX which we want to preserve from getting wiped by the upcoming upgrade.

How can I do this.

Thanks in advance.

Using SDF to Preserve Sandbox Account Changes

SDF users can import updated sandbox account objects into an SDF project before the activation of a sandbox refresh, and then deploy those objects to the sandbox account after the refresh has been activated.

Follow these steps to use SDF to preserve sandbox account changes:

  1. When you receive the email notification that the sandbox refresh is ready to be activated, identify the changes that were made since the initiation of the refresh request.

    The changes are those you have made since the snapshot timestamp. To view the snapshot timestamp, go to Setup > Company > Company Management > Sandbox Accounts (Administrator). The snapshot timestamp is located under Production Snapshot Date.

  2. Preserve the changes by importing the desired custom objects into an SDF project. See Account Component Imports.
  3. Activate the sandbox refresh. See Requesting a Refresh.
  4. After the sandbox refresh has completed, deploy the custom objects from the SDF project to the refreshed sandbox account. See Deployment Logs.

Using SuiteBundler to Preserve Sandbox Account Changes

You can preserve updated sandbox account objects by packaging them in a bundle and installing the bundle to a related production account before activating the refresh. Later you can install the objects into the sandbox account after the refresh has been activated.

Follow these steps to use SuiteBundler to preserve sandbox account changes:

  1. When you receive the email notification that the sandbox refresh is ready to be activated, identify the changes that were made since the initiation of the refresh request.

    The changes are those you have made since the snapshot timestamp. The snapshot timestamp is included in the email notification.

  2. Bundle the updated sandbox objects that you have identified and install the bundle into a related production account. See Creating a Bundle with the Bundle BuilderSelective Update of Sandbox Bundle Objects, and Installing a Bundle.
  3. Activate the sandbox refresh (see Requesting a Refresh).
  4. After the sandbox refresh has completed, bundle the updated objects from production and install the bundle into the refreshed sandbox account.
