NetSuite OpenAir SFTP to SharePoint

Posted by Jayden Bartram on Mar 14, 2022 3:02:00 PM

NetSuite’s OpenAir allows you to backup files and attachments to an SFTP server. However, no one wants to host or manage an SFTP server these days, especially with everything moving to the cloud. Not to mention, backing up or getting files to a platform such as SharePoint or Box would make the content more usable and increase productivity. Couchdrop offers a simplified solution. 


Use Couchdrop for NetSuite OpenAir SFTP to SharePoint

Using Couchdrop’s Cloud SFTP platform, you can bring your own cloud storage (such as SharePoint, Box, Google Drive, Amazon S3, Azure, etc.) and interact with specific directories or folders using the industry standard SFTP. Through using Couchdrop as a medium, you can send your OpenAir data to SharePoint or any other cloud platform in real-time for backup or to ingest into an ETL pipeline.

How to get started

  • Create a Couchdrop account
  • Connect your cloud storage
  • Create an SFTP user
  • Configure OpenAir

Step 1. Create a Couchdrop account

You'll need to register for a Couchdrop account if you don't already have one. At sign-up, you'll automatically be given 14 days free to evaluate Couchdrop with no credit card required.
