More Information

External applications can be integrated in innovaphone UC clients myPBX and myPBX.

Those can be locally installed PC-applications as well as web applications.

Upon incoming and outgoing call, such applications may be opened and call-parameters can be handed over optionally.



  • Right Click on myPBX – Configuration – External Application
  • Enter the name of the external app (which will be seen as tooltip of the external app button).
  • Paste the path of the external app into the field “Path”. It can be both the URL of a web application ($n) or the path of a desktop application installed on the local computer (C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe)
  • Optionally specify command line parameters for Desktop Apps into the field “Parameters”.
  • Save the changes.


The Path and the Parameters may contain placeholders that are replaced by phone call information.

   $n - phone number of the caller
   $u - uri of the caller
   $d - display name of the caller
   $c - conference ID (a global ID for the call) 

Now you will get the "start external application" button in every conversation or interaction field.
