About

My innovaphone replaces the former license manager. It will also include the handling of device warranty and software service agreements (only partially implemented yet).

Project-View

My innovaphone offers the possibility for several users to be in one company. This company shares its balance of licenses over all users and can have several projects. Projects have their own balance of license types and devices are bound to a project.

Language

My innovaphone will support multiple languages. You can select your desired language at the top of the page.
Currently supported languages:

  • English
  • German
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • French

First steps

Open my.innovaphone.com and click the "Register Now" link. Enter your personal data and register.

You will receive a registration email with an activation link. After account activation you have two options:

  • create a new my innovaphone company (under Licenses->Company)
  • ask another user of your company to add your user account to an already existing company

If you accidentally created an own my innovaphone company, just ask another user of your company to import your just created company.

If you create a new company, you can optionally enter your innovaphone account ID (which is your customer number with innovaphone) with your postal code, to retrieve your company data.

 You will see a help link at the right side of the horizontal tab menu. 
 This link shows the corresponding text of the wiki section, when hovering with the mouse over it, 
 and redirects to the corresponding wiki menu, if clicked.
 It is now possible, that one user is member of serveral companies!

Search

At the right top of the page you have a search field. You can search for different things:

  • Devices (part of a device name or device comment)
  • Projects (part of a project name or project description)
  • Own activation keys (part of an activation key or its description)
 You have to enter at least three chars to start a search. To search for activation keys, 
 you have to enter at least five chars.
  • Search for license types. Enter e.g. "PBX-Port8" to find all devices with Port8 licenses or enter "PBX-Port8=100" to find all devices with Port8 licenses >= 100.
  • Search for products, e.g. 01-00811 für IP811 (such a search may take longer!)

Licenses

Projects

After creation of an own company, you will have a default project named "DEFAULT". You can rename this project later. You can also create more projects on the projects page with "Create". Each project of a company must have a unique name.

 Do not set SSA, if you want to import your devices from your old license manager account first.
 If you want SSA and you won't import devices into this project from your old account, you should set SSA at once.

You can select a certain project by activating it in the project list. This selection is then true for all other pages, as some pages require a selected project.

Projects page
Projects page

By activating a project by clicking on the project name in the project list, you can manage this project and its settings.

Properties

Rename the project or/and change its description.

You can configure further CC mail addresses inside your License Purchase project, if you have one. If you purchase licenses on credit, the emails will be also sent to theses addresses.

Since version 10, an innovaphone device will automatically connect to http://config.innovaphone.com/init This script looks at the project properties of the project, where the device exists.
You can configure an update URL and a trusted certificate.

Software Service

You can put your project under SSA (software service agreement). You will be asked to enter a SSA end date. This will be the date, where all SSA licenses of all devices in this project will expire. The end date mustn't be more than one year in the past.
Optionally you can enter a maximum SSC amount. The SSA end date will be automatically calculated then.

 If you have entered a maximum SSC amount, you have to use the Recalculate link to calculate a new SSA end date, 
 if you change your license selection.


You can also calculate SSA over all projects at once. In this mode, you won't be able to confirm the calculation. You'll just see the necessary SSC amount.

After entering a date/SSC amount, you will get a summary of all licenses, which will be put under SSA and the amount of needed SSC licenses. The SSC value for each license is calculated by the bind date of the license and the entered SSA end date/SSC amount.

SSA summary
SSA summary

If you have licenses for an older version than the current version, you have to pay SSCs from the release date of the next version of the current license version.

 e.g. you have a V7 PBX-PBX7#15 license with bind date 1/1/2010. Version 8 was released on 7/12/2009, so SSA is
 calculated from 7/12/2009 for this license. You will see the calculation date in the list under "bind date"

If licenses already have a SSA date, just the difference between the current SSA date and the entered SSA end date must be paid. If the bind date of the device lies in the past, the difference between the bind date and the current date must be paided twice (this is the column 'days*2').
If your license is under SSA, which is already over, you also have to pay the time between the old SSA date and the current SSA end date twice.

Here is a short example, how the days are calculated:

Bind date: 24/06/2009
Current date: 31/08/2009
SSA end date: 12/12/2011

You will have to pay from 24/06/2009 to 31/08/2009 twice for 68 days. From 31/08/2009 to 12/12/2011 you will then have to pay the normal price for 833 days.

You can also select for each license, if you want SSA for it or not. If not, no SSC is needed and no (new) SSA end date is set for this license.

 You can preview the SSC calculation for another calculation date. Simply change the dropdown
 selection to get the new SSC value.
 Of course you can't confirm this calculation for another date, just for the current date!
 You may add additional licenses to the calculation, which you will bind later. Just click on the + near this text and you can add
 multiple licenses, which will be added to your calculation after using the recalc link. Listed are licenses of the current version and from
 your balance.

After confirming your entered SSA end date, each license will have this date as SSA end date and can be downloaded in all versions of this SSA time.

You can now extend the projects SSA end date like as setting a new one. The resulting summary is the same as above.

If your user account has the right to buy licenses on credit, just check the checkbox. You may enter an order number, which you can use for your order, if you buy on credit.

Past SSA end date

You can configure a new SSA end date in the past, if you accidentally configured a wrong date.
No licenses will be changed, if you configure a date in the past, just the SSA end date of the project!

SSA Expiry Mail
 If project SSA will expire, each company user will receive a reminder mail 7 weeks before and 
 then every week one mail.
 You can disable these mails with the checkbox 'Send SSA expiry mails'.
 Note that every user can configure, if he wants to receive mails or not in his account settings.

If you want the end user of the project to receive an expiry mail, you can configure a reseller mail address and end user mail addresses. These end users will then receive an email, 30 days before the project will expire. The default text is:

Your Software Service Agreement for your innovaphone PBX in project "{$arg[3]}" will expire in {$arg[1]} days. 
Please contact your reseller {$arg[2]} to upgrade the license.<br>
The upgrade of the license is important to secure the phone system!

You can change this text as you want. You can use placeholders:

  • {$arg[1]}: days left
  • {$arg[2]}: reseller mail address
  • {$arg[3]}: project name


You can also define a global text for all projects under your Company settings.

 You can optionally configure to receive project SSA independent reminder mails for each license of a device here.
Automatic SSA Extension Service

You can request an automatic SSA extension service for a project, which is under SSA. By following this link, you will have the opportunity to request a callback and/or the necessary agreement as PDF file.

All licenses have to be under SSA to use the automatic SSA extension service!

There are some basics to know, if a project is under automatic SSA:

  • If you bind new/free licenses, they'll get SSA until the current project SSA date and you will receive an invoice for the SSCs
  • If you move devices into this project, their licenses will get SSA until the current project SSA date and you will receive an invoice for the SSCs
  • You can't join this project into another project, but you can join another project into this one

Rights

Own project

Add or delete company rights for this project. To add a company right, you have to enter the company id of this company. Each user of a company with rights on this project can add devices, licenses, activation keys to this specific project, but is restricted in removing devices, editing the project and can't create activation keys with the projects balance.

 The company id can be found under Licenses->company and the company tab.
Project rights
Project rights
External Project

If another company granted access rights to a project to you, you can unsubscribe from this project here.

Import

The import has been disabled. All old devices are already imported and can be added to your project manually.

Join

Here you can join your currently selected project with another project, which you select from a dropdown box.
If the other project has SSA, you'll see the current SSA end date, which you might change for the join process and you will get a list of all licenses, which might be updated to the ssa end date/changed date of the other project. The list equals the list shown under Software Service.

 The selected project will be automatically deleted after the join. You can't join a project,
 if it grants external rights to another customer. Delete these rights before.
You can't change the SSA end date, if the other project is under automatic SSA! You will receive an invoice for SSCs used for the join.

Project Move (admin only)

A company admin can move a project with its devices, activation keys, balance etc. to another company. You have to know the company ID from this company, which can be found under Licenses->Company and the company tab.
The history won't be moved!

Projects with negative balances can't be moved!
Existing project rights will be deleted.

Delete

Delete the project. Only possible if it has no activation keys, project rights, devices or user rights.
You may join your project into another one, if you can't delete it.

Project Freed_RMA_licenses

If you see a project with this name in your project list, you had a RMA device with not yed moved licenses, which was shipped to innovaphone and reshipped to another customer.
The licenses of such a device have been moved into the pool of free licenses of the project Freed_RMA_licenses, from where you can assign them to another device.

Balance

On the balance page you will see the balance of the currently selected project or the balance of all your projects together. The balance is bound to your company and not to your user account. The balance is bound to a specific project, but can be shared for license creation or activation key creation if wished.
Sharing the balance over several projects is not possible in external projects!

Balance page
Balance page

Free licenses

Here you see a list of all your free licenses. If you return licenses from one of your devices, the returned licenses are stored in your free licenses pool. You can assign these licenses to another device (see 'Add licenses from free licenses').

Free licenses list

A List of your devices in the currently selected project.
You can deselect the current project/device to list all your devices.

Select a certain device from the device list, to manage its properties, licenses etc.

 Actions on multiple devices:
 * Move: move several devices into another project at once (see Move Device)
 * Remove: remove several devices at once (see Remove)
Add

Follow the "Add new devices" link on the devices page.

There you have a few options:

  • You can add a single new device
  • You can add devices according to a mac address range (e.g. from 00-90-33-08-20-00 to 00-90-33-08-22-00), maximum 50 at once
  • You can add devices by uploading a text file with mac addresses like this (maximum 50 at once, each line one mac):
 00-90-33-08-20-20
 00-90-33-08-20-21
 00-90-33-08-20-22
 00-90-33-24-20-20
  • You can add devices according to your received order number. Just enter you order number and you will get a list of all devices bount to this number.

Note: MAC addresses can be always given like this:

  • 00-90-33-xx-xx-xx
  • 00:90:33:xx:xx:xx
  • 009033xxxxxx
  • xxxxxx (00-90-33- will then be added automatically)

There might be errors, if you try to add a device. They are explained here.

 As the device warranty will be handled by licenses now, you can also add telephone devices
 to your projects.
Add warranty extensions

Here you can add warranty extension licenses for all devices in the currently selected project.
You'll get a list of all devices with the corresponding license type(s) and you can specify the years for each device (or for all devices by entering the number in the list header).
After confirming your selection, you'll get an overview of all needed licenses, which you have to confirm too.


Check licence, SSA and warranty status of a device

Here you can list licenses with ssa and the warranty end date of a device, which is not in one of your projects.
This is just available with the needed right.

Download devices of an order as CSV

Enter an order number to retrieve all devices for this order in a CSV file.

Download devices of an order as PDF with barcodes

Enter an order number to retrieve all devices for this order in a PDF file with a barcode for each MAC address.
Der Barcode ist vom Typ C128B.


Properties

Change the name and comment of a device.

 You can only change the name, if it's no MAC or IPEI.


Here you have also the possibility, to directly request RMA for this device with prefilled values.

Licenses

Here you can add, download or move licenses.

Add licenses from balance

To create new licenses for a device, you have to add this device first on the devices page and then select a version of the license and whether you want to summate the current licencing. If you select current licenses, then older licenses for example V6 or V7 licenses will also be counted as V8 licenses in the next overview. This is necessary if you want to license a V6 unit with V8 licenses, but still want to use it as V6. After that click "Next". On the next page you will see a list of all available license types, which depends on your current available license types, of the selected license version and the device type (IP6000, IP800 e.g.):

Licenses for an IP3000
Licenses for an IP3000


If your project has a SSA end date, which is not yet over, you'll have the possibility to set SSA for the new licenses to this SSA end date or you can optionally change this date to another one for the new licenses.
You see the available project balance, the balance over all projects (excluding external projects), the currently installed licenses and the maximum amount for this device type. You can now enter the value of the new license. Base/Upgrade licenses can be selected via dropdown box. Voicemail and Standby lics must always have the same amount as the selected PBX-PBX... license! The maximum amount of PBX-Registration licenses equals the amount of the selected PBX-PBX... license!

The whished overall amount of pbx version 8 and above licenses can be specified here and the concrete amount of license sub types will be requested on the next page.

You can preview the SSC calculation of the wished licenses without having them in your balance.
Licenses for an IP800 with V8, step two
Licenses for an IP800 with V8, step two

The best (cheapest) combination of each v8 pbx license type is already filled in, but you might change the amount of sub types if your does not fit and you do not want to purchase new activation keys for the sub types.

The column SSC/Unit is just shown if your project is currently under SSA and you have entered a SSA end date.

 The SSC multiplicator is the value, which you have to multiplicate with each license unit to get 
 the corresponding SSC amount.
 E.g. if you have 20 units of PBX-Port8*20 licenses with a SSC value of 54 and a multiplicator of 
 1.0000 (which equals to 365 days) you have to pay 20*54*1.0000 ~ 1080 SSCs.


If you create licenses for an older version than the current version, you have to pay SSCs from the release date of the next version of the currently selected version twice.

 e.g.: you want to bind licenses for V6 with SSA, so you have to pay SSCs from the release date of V7


You can also select for each license, if you want SSA for it or not. If not, no SSC is needed and no (new) SSA end date is set for this license.

You can't change the SSA end date, if the project is under automatic SSA! You will receive an invoice for SSCs used for the new binding.

Now confirm your new selection. If you have not enough licenses in your current project, but there are still licenses in other projects, you will get a dropdown box with a list of all projects containing the needed licenses. You can now select all desired/needed projects and confirm your selection again. The balance of all selected projects will then be decreased by the needed amount.

If your user account has the right to buy licenses on credit, just check the checkbox.
You may enter an order number, which you can use for your order, if you buy on credit.

Add licenses from free licenses

Here you can assign licenses, which you returned from other devices. You will also have to select the desired version and will than get a list of fitting licenses according to the current device and selected version.

Free Licenses for an IP800 with V8
Free Licenses for an IP800 with V8

If a license is under SSA, the correct license type is shown in column 'License Type' besides the 'Original Type'. On confirming the selection, a consistency check is done (e.g. only 4 Relay-PRI licenses on an IP6000). Bind and SSA end date will be maintained for each license.

As external keys are also maintained, you can select e.g. an old Dect-Multicell-Ari license to have the same ARI on another IP1200.

 If your project has a SSA end date, which is not yet over, you'll have the possibility to set SSA for the new licenses 
 to this SSA end date or you can optionally change this date to another one for the new licenses.
 You will have to confirm this after your first license selection (this is the same calculation as here).
 You can't change the SSA end date, if the project is under automatic SSA! You will receive an invoice for SSCs used for the binding.
Add V7 floating license (slave pbx)

Here you can add a V7 floating license for a slave pbx. A device with a floating license can't have V7 pbx licenses and a device with V7 pbx licenses can't have a floating license.

Delete V7 floating license

Here you can delete an already existing floating license, if you won't use it anymore.

Add warranty extension licenses

Extend your warranty by adding warranty extension licenses:

Warranty extension
Warranty extension
 If you add the warranty extension immediately after the receipt of your device,
 you can add the cheaper warranty extension licenses, otherwise you'll have to add
 the more expensive ones.
 You can extend the warranty for a maximum of four years.
Download licenses
Download Licenses
Download Licenses

You will get a dropdown with all available versions. Versions are dependent of your device, your licenses and of the ssa of your licenses.
From V9 on, you just have one option, which will create a license file, which contains the licenses upgraded to the highest version of their type.
You are able to download downgraded versions of your licenses. E.g. if you have only V8 licenses, you can download a V7 license file (same restrictions as below).

 Downgrades or only possible down to version 6!

If you do not want to download licenses by version, you have to decide whether to download the licenses encrypted or not. If you download the licenses unencrypted, you won't be able to return those licenses anymore. So you won't be able to return licenses for devices with V5-V7 licenses, as licenses for these versions are not encrypted. To return these licenses, you will have to upgrade to a new bootcode, which prevents firmware downgrades to versions below version 8.
Encrypted licenses are stored in a xml file, which you can then upload on your V8 (or higher) device.

 You can now also download licenses directly from by the web interface of a device. 
 You just have to enter your account data and start downloading the licenses from my.innovaphone.com 
 without having to download/upload a license file.
Download test licenses
Download test licenses
Download test licenses

You can also download test licenses if you want to run tests. You will be asked, which version you want to use, whether the device is used as slave and if not used as slave, how many pbx licenses you want to use.

V5 does not support test licenses!
Move licenses to another device

If you have the needed account rights or the device is already in RMA, you can move licenses to another device. After moving licenses, the former device will be marked as a RMA device.

 You can just move licenses to devices without licenses!

Move device

Here you can move the current device or the selected devices to another project.
If you select a SSA project, you can change the SSA end date for the move process.

 If the other project is under SSA, you will first see a SSC calculation, which you have to confirm, 
 as the SSA date for each SSA license will be extended until the given SSA end date 
 (this is the same calculation as adding SSA to an already existing project, see here).
 You can't change the SSA end date, if the other project is under automatic SSA! You will receive an invoice for SSCs used for the move.

Invalidation

Requirements
  • V8 or higher
  • access to the webinteraface
  • a device certificate
  • my.innovaphone login credentials
  • no IPVA device
  • no 'In House' licenses
Informations

You can invalidate V8 (or higher) licenses by uploading the XML file, you got from your device or by returning your licenses over the web interface of your device (Reference8:Configuration/General/License), in order to return PBX licenses back to the balance.

V7 licenses can be just returned, if you agree, that you won't be able to downgrade below V8 anymore. You will need a new bootcode, to use this function. You need a V8 firmware or higher for invalidation.

 If your device has access to my.innovaphone.com, you can also invalidate licenses directly
 from the web interface of the device.
 gateway licenses and warranty extensions won't be returned to the balance and remain to be assigned to the device!
 The licenses needn't be present on the local device to perform the invalidation!
 SSA it's bound to the license and it's not lost when performing invalidation.
Process

Steps to invalidate licenses, if your device has internet connectivity:

  1. on the web interface of the device go to General->License and follow the my.innovaphone link
  2. enter your my.innovaphone account, the device must be in one of your projects
  3. click Invalidate
  4. click Transfer (this might fail, if NTP or DNS is not configured properly or device certificate is not installed)
  5. reset if asked for


Steps to invalidate licenses, if your device has no internet connectivity:

  1. on the web interface of the device go to General->License and follow the my.innovaphone link
  2. click Invalidate
  3. click Backup and upload this file on my.innovaphone here
  4. you'll get a confirmation file after uploading the saved file
  5. upload this on the device (under Step1)
  6. reset if asked for
 "Your IP800 does not have a device certificate on it." - In this case you need to download a hardware certification,
 please contact the innovaphone license.
Download confirmation file

If you created a new certificate or you invalidated your licenses, you can later download the confirmation file, which you have to upload on the box.

Request certificate

If you have the needed rights, you can request a new device certificate for your device.

Upload the invalidation document to return licenses

Upload the invalidation document, which you got from the website of the device to return the licenses of this device.

After uploading you'll get a confirmation file, which you have to upload on your device.

Remove

You can always remove devices from a project. If they have licenses, these won't be deleted, so you might add the device to another project again.

Known Issues

Smaller issues

  • Devices where imported into a project with SSA. If this happened to you, please move the corresponding devices into a project without SSA and back into the project with SSA to extend/add SSA for the licenses until the SSA end date.
  • IE7 moves a list under the menu, when a list becomes to wide

Licenses don't work on a device, where an invalidation has been done

A possible reason here is, that the invalidation process hasn't been completed. To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  • Download the Confirmation File (Certificate) from http://my.innovaphone.com under Invalidation after selecting the project and the device
  • Open General->License->my.innovaphone.com on your device
  • Click on "Invalidate" (no my.innovaphone credentials needed)
  • Upload the previously downloaded confirmation file newcert-00-90-33-xx-xx-xx.xml as "Confirmation file"
  • Reset the box
  • Reupload the licenses
