The LDAP Quickdial object allows to map quickdial numbers by means of LDAP queries into telephone numbers. After a successful query a call will be forwarded to the resulting destination number.

The LDAP query will be submitted with the dialled number, reduced by the object's own extension, resp. own prefix. E.g. if an LDAP Quickdial object has got the extension *1 and a user dialled *11001, the LDAP query will be submitted for an attribute content of 1001.

Please, consult the Related Articles section for configuration examples.


Parameterize the remote LDAP server.

  • Server(mandatory): <IP address>[:port] of remote LDAP server.
  • User: For authentication purposes. Leave empty, if server allows for anonymous access.
  • Password: For authentication purposes. Leave empty, if server allows for anonymous access.
  • Search Base(mandatory): The root DN where the search should should start at. E.g. ou=quickdial,dc=meta.
  • Name Attributes(mandatory): Enter a single attribute that is being searched for. If e.g. entryID is configured here, an LDAP search for the example from above would be searching for the LDAP filter (entryID=1001).
  • Number Attributes(mandatory): Enter a single attribute that is known to hold the desired telephone number. Most directories maintain the attribute telephoneNumber for this purpose. Multiple attributes may be entered as comma-separated list, such that a search for telephoneNumber,mobile becomes possible.

Dialing Location

The Dialing Location is an optional setting. If an LDAP directory maintains telephone numbers in international form with a leading '+' sign, a mechanism must be available to convert or normalize such a number into a diallable number with all the required prefixes.

  • Country Code: The country code (e.g. 49 for Germany).
  • Area Code: The area code (e.g. 30 for Berlin).
  • National Prefix: The national trunk prefix (0 in Germany).
  • International Prefix: The international trunk prefix (00 in Germany).
  • External Line: The prefix, necessary to access a trunk line. This prefix equals 0 in most PBX configurations.
  • Subscriber Numbers: For the conversion of international numbers to internal extensions, the relevant subscriber numbers (comma-separated) may be configured here (E.g +49703173009).
  • Trace: Enable some tracing for support purposes.
