In this edition, we continue our exploration of NetSuite Searches by looking at a general NetSuite concept called the
mainline search filter.
To coincide with this series of articles on Searching, I have also created a series of SuiteScript cookbooks focused on Searching. If you are tired of NetSuite’s unrealistic or broken examples, then these cookbooks are for you.
Our investigation today doesn’t require a lot of code; we’ll mostly be demonstrating the behaviour of Transaction searches in the UI. For that reason, I believe this concept is best explored through the associated video:
mainline filter is critical to building useful Transaction Searches in NetSuite; if you’re looking to accelerate your mastery of searching in SuiteScript with realistic, fully functioning examples, check out my Searching with SuiteScript cookbooks.
