  • v13 on myApps Cloud Platform

Part 1 - The installation of the myApps Cloud

The initial setup of the myApps Cloud Platform is typically conducted by a certified partner, through an installation link (URL). During this step process, the system's basic configuration is done. Among others, the first PBX user is created, secure passwords are created and distributed. Last not least, the basic software is installed on PBX and app platform. After this step, the platform is operational.
If possible, please have your smtp mail server credentials (server address, email address, password, etc.) in hands, which will be required in step 6 of this installation (can optionally be skipped).

Step 1 – Execute the received installation URL

This step covers the basic network settings. Most of the fields are pre-configured and not meant to change.

  • The section with the network settings shows private IP addressing inside the cloud. This setting is specific to every single cloud instance, and shall not be changed.
  • The Update section shows the current version of the preinstalled system. In case an update is available, it will automatically be installed after pressing <Next>. In this case the system loads the new firmware, restarts and returns to the same screen.
  • Please confirm with <Next>.

Part 2 - Configuration of Email settings

In case the email settings where skipped during the installation process (step 6), it can be done now.
What normally is done by the installer in one step, can be done manually in two steps.

Step 1 - Email configuration Plugin

To activate the Two-factor authentication, proceed like this: Go to the Devices App, select your PBX, click on the tabs PBX, Config, Authentication, tick Two-factor authentication and press [OK] (further details here).




Step 2 - SMTP settings for Users Admin

In case user should be able to create an own account through a web registration form, the Users Admin App needs to have smtp server credentials as well.

Proceed like this: Open the Users Admin App, click on the burger menu (upper right corner) and fill the SMTP section (further details please check our Courseware).

Part 3 - Configuring Software Licenses

The software licenses, used on the myApps Cloud platform, are based on the flexible innovaphone software rental program (details here).

In order to activate licenses, proceed like this:

  • Start in the Devices App. Select the respective company domain and click on the software rental tab.
  • Charge the iSC Account Balance (details here) with an activation key.
  • Configure of the required licenses (details here)
    Within the myApps Cloud, each user (or trunk-line) line needs 2 licenses to operate, the "Port-Lic" plus the "IPVA-Lic".
    In other words, to operate a myApps Cloud installation for 20 users and 1 trunk-line, a minimum of 21 "Port-Lic" plus 21 "IPVA-Lic" have to be configured.
