LiveAgent is a well known cloud based Multi-channel Customer Service software (SaaS) provider. DoorVaani is a LiveAgent accredited VOIP Service provider with native integration of voice channels and DID Phone Numbers in LiveAgent panel. Once integrated, all of your inbound and outbound voice call interactions with your customers get logged and recorded in LiveAgent panel so that you can efficiently manage them leading to highly satisfied customers. This blog post details how to setup LiveAgent to use DoorVaani VOIP Service and DoorVaani DID Phone Numbers.

  1. If you have not yet signed up with DoorVaani – please do it now for free. Please click here to register your DoorVaani.com account now in about a minute or less.
  2. Once you register your account, you will be able to login into your DoorVaani.com account and immediately create a VOIP Line(a.k.a SIP Trunk or SIP Account). The VOIP Line credentials as entered by you while creating your DoorVaani VOIP Line will be needed by you to enter into the LiveAgent Panel (step 8 below) to get the integrated service.
  3. Please buy a Phone Number (Local Phone Number or Toll-free Phone Number) to be entered in LiveAgent to i) get inbound calls from your customers and ii) set it as your CallerID on your outbound calls. You can buy the Phone Number from the “MY PHONE NUMBERS > Buy Phone Numbers” left hand side menu in your DoorVaani.com account.
  4. Once you have the VOIP Line credentials and a Phone Number from DoorVaani.com – you have everything to do the integration in your LiveAgent Panel. Please login into your LiveAgent panel using the login details provided to you by LiveAgent.
  5. To use the voice call channels in LiveAgent, please ensure calls are “Enabled” in your LiveAgent. By default LiveAgent sets Calls as “Enabled”. To check this, please click on “Configuration” gear wheel icon (at the bottom left corner of your LiveAgent panel), then click on “Call” menu (in configuration menu) and you should see “Enable Call” as checked “on” as shown in the following screenshot.

  9. Please click on “Save” button and ensure you get a success message. LiveAgent will then connect to our SIP Server using your VOIP Line username and password (a.k.a SIP Trunk). This process is known as SIP Registration. This SIP registration must be successful with no errors. If you see any errors, please ensure you entered the correct Username and Password (both are case sensitive) and also ensure you entered correct Phone Number starting from the country code in E-164 format. How to ensure the SIP registration is successful is discussed below in step 11.

  11. On the phone numbers edit screen – ensure that the “Registered State” is “the UAC is successfully registered” as shown in the following screen shot. Any issues must be resolved here before proceeding any further. Most common issues are incorrect VOIP Line username and password (Both are case sensitive). Correct them if required. If you did VOIP Line password reset, please ensure the new password is entered. Any future password resets must be immediately followed by updating here in LiveAgent panel – numbers edit screen.

  12. One or more “devices” (SIP Phones) are to be added now. A “device” can be either a VOIP Soft-phone or a Hardware IP-Phone. The configuration in LiveAgent is independent of the actual device you are going to use to make and receive VOIP Calls. This step simply gives you the SIP Credentials (username and password along with host name) that you will need to connect the actual device. You can use any standards compliant device and you can change the device at any time if needed. Suggested soft-phone device is “ZoiPer IAX SIP Soft-phone” (for Windows / Mac PCs or Android/iOS Mobiles) and suggested Hardware IP Phone is GrandStream GXP1620 (or GXP1625). These are just suggestions any you can use any standards compliant (RFC3261) device of your choice. To add a device, click on Configuration Gear Wheel and then click on “Devices” item under “Call” and click on  + button. If you don’t see “Devices”, please search for “Device” in the configuration search box. Please refer to the following screenshot.

  20. Test the setup by making and receiving some test calls using your DoorVaani.com phone number. You can get multiple Phone Numbers from DoorVaani.com and also multiple VOIP Lines (SIP Trunks) as per your needs. You can also have multiple inbound and outbound channels – so that more than one call (Inbound or outbound) can be simultaneously made through your VOIP Lines (SIP Trunks). If you have more than one Phone Number from us, you may want to use our “BestMatch” CallerID feature – which dynamically assigns the best CallerID in real-time based on the destination you have called.
