What is CloudExtend Autopilot?
Autopilot enables Gmail users to put an email thread on Autopilot, ie once you attach the email to a NetSuite record all subsequent emails in the same thread will automatically attach to the same set of records. Learn more about Autopilot here.
Admin Steps to Enable Autopilot Beta
First, request beta access here. Proceed with the steps below only after you have been accepted into the program and been asked to take the next steps.
Authorize Autopilot (G Suite Admin)
Your G Suite Admin will need to make a few changes to allow the proper permissions for CloudExtend Autopilot.
- Navigate to the G Suite Admin console to manage client API access. This setting can be found at Security->Advanced Settings->Authentication (Manage API client access).
- Add the following details for Client Name and API scopes and click 'Authorize'. Note the scope list below is already comma separated for you.
Client Id (Name)
API Scopes (copy as is, including comma)
IMPORTANT - After the steps below are completed it will take up to 24 hours for all the users to have access to Autopilot.
The NetSuite configuration consists of two steps, create access tokens and enable Autopilot.
Create access tokens
Login to NetSuite with an Admin role (this is important as the tokens will take on the role of the currently logged in user, if you prefer not to use Admin role be sure the role has edit access to all NetSuite records, including custom records).
- From the home page (scroll to bottom left), select 'Manage Access Tokens' and then select 'New My Access Token'.
- Select the application, Celigo CloudExtend for Google Apps, accept the default name provided, and click 'Save'.
- Save the Token ID and Secret in a secure location such as LastPass as this page will not be available to to you again. If you lose them you can, however, recreate them.
Now that you have your token and secret you are ready for the final step.
- Open the CloudExtend setup wizard by going to Setup->Custom->Celigo CloudExtend Setup. Navigate to step 2 by clicking Next.
- Look for the "Autopilot settings" configuration pane. (Note: This is only visible for accounts that have a license (including beta) for Autopilot.
- Enter the Token ID and Secret from the above step and click Submit.
To disable Autopilot for all users select 'Off' and then press Submit.
Educate end users
Provide your end users with a link to this article that provides an FAQ on the Autopilot beta (more is being added). Please remember that it can take up to 24 hours for the users to receive the feature. Consider sending your notification appropriately.
