VGIS Login Flow

Netsuite will provide the token for the “default” role set in Netsuite for the user.
To set a default role:

  • Hover over the logged-in user profile at the window’s top right corner.
  • Click View All Roles in the menu.
  • Select the role that has permissions to log into VGIS.
  • Log into CRM once again to make sure the default role is set correctly and appears at the top right of the window.

If the default role does not require two-factor authentication, the user will successfully log into VGIS. However, suppose the default role requires two-factor authentication, and the user has not entered the verification code. In that case, CRM will display an error message asking the user to enter the OTP for the Verification Code field. Once users enter the OTP, they will be logged in to VGIS successfully.

If you do not have an authenticator app as an extension:

  1. Reset two-factor authentication for that user.
  2. Once reset, log out and log in again to Netsuite CRM.
  3. Follow the two-factor authentication process.

Users can get the OTP from the Authenticator App. Netsuite recommends that users install an authenticator app for two-factor authentication.

Users can customize the number of options per drop-down in Netsuite. Based on this setting, VGIS shows a drop-down as a search box if the number of options exceeds the limit.

To set the limit,

  1. Go to the Set Up menu option, and navigate to Company.
  2. Click on General Preferences.
  3. Find the textbox for Maximum Entries in Drop-down.
  4. If the number of options is greater than the number given in the settings, VGIS will change the select drop-down as a search box as it is unnecessary to get all options at once in the metadata.

Sign in to NetSuite

Sign in through VGIS Web

To sign in to VGIS web, go to the Web Portal (
Proceed to click on Vonage Business Communications and enter your credentials.

To view and configure NetSuite integration resources, go to the VGIS Config Portal by visiting the following link: 

Under My Account, select the circle icon within NetSuite and then click on NetSuite Resources.

You can see available contacts, known as contactable objects, and available activities. Drag the objects you want to use to the right side of the panel. Contacts are objects with phone numbers, while activities are objects that are created based on calling activity.
Please Note: Contact order affects the order of results when multiple matches are found. 
When choosing the best match for contacts, the system searches for the first type, then the second, and so on. For example, if you have customers set as first under contacts when searching through contacts, customers will show first, followed by leads, and continue for the remainder of the list.

Contactable objects are synced from NetSuite once a day unless an administrator performs a manual sync in the VGIS Configuration Portal. To turn on auto-sync for a contact, use the toggle on the right for each contact type under Integration resources.

To perform a manual sync, navigate to configuration tools and select Synchronize contacts. Choose the type of sync you’d like to perform, and proceed to click Sync Now. You can view the status of the sync and the date of the last sync made.



The recent calls page appears by default when signed in to the Vonage Integration Suite. You can easily click on a recent call to call the contact back, send a message, view call information, add notes, create tasks for the entity, create activities, and view relevant contacts. Additionally, you can add the contact as a favorite by clicking on the Star icon.


When you mark a contact as a favorite, they appear in the favorites tab. You can quickly edit the favorite contact’s information, access the dial pad, and get help by clicking the question mark icon.
You can add a favorite contactable object by clicking the Add New button.
