NetSuite will start enforcing two-factor authentication (2FA) for all Administrator, Full Access, and other highly privileged roles in all NetSuite accounts in their 2018.2 release
Please be aware that NetSuite will start enforcing two-factor authentication (2FA) for all Administrator, Full Access, and other highly privileged roles in all NetSuite accounts in their 2018.2 release. This requirement includes access to production, sandbox, development, and Release Preview accounts. The Administrator and Full Access roles are designated as 2FA authentication required by default, and this requirement cannot be removed. To ensure your integrations continue to run without issue, create a custom role with the needed rights and assign that custom role as the default role of the user id running the integrations.
These changes will go into effect for all NetSuite accounts effective the date 2018.2 is released to your organization. Your NetSuite administrator can find the exact upgrade date for your organization by logging in to your NetSuite account.
If your NetSuite administrator has obtained a standard temporary exemption to the 2018.2 2FA requirement, then the enforcement of 2FA will be delayed until the 2019.1 release to your NetSuite organization. To request a standard temporary exemption, your NetSuite administrator should immediately submit a support ticket requesting the 2FA requirement be delayed until 2019.1. Even if you do have an exception, we still recommend that you start preparing for these changes as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition.
