[edit] Description

The PBX-Designer for innovaphone is a PBX management application that provides an easy and graphical user interface, without the need to use the innovaphone PBX-Manager app.

The complex nesting and integration of announcements, DTMF functions, agents, call forwarding or timers are available in a simplified way as well as the integration of a voicemail box.

When installing the PBX-Designer, you agree to install and use the open source product ffmpeg.
The ffmpeg application is installed when you install the application and is used for audio conversion in the application.

Lic | Ports
1 | ≤ 20
2 | ≤ 40

Example 1: If you have 13 PBX-Port licenses installed, you will need 1 service licenses.

[edit] Configuration

[edit] Install the PBX-Designer via the App Store

Possibly you’ll have to go to AP Manager > App Store.
Search and install the newest K-Businesscom PBX-Designer:


[edit] Add an App instance

Select the newly installed App on the left of the screen, then click the Add button.

Fill in PBX-Designer as Name, your PBX domain as Domain and both Passwords fields.
The other fields (Webserver path, Database name & user) are automatically generated, and should not be modified. Click Save to create the instance. Image:K-Businesscom-PBX-Designer-add_instance_2.png

[edit] Start PBX-Designer instance

The PBX-Designer app is already started automatically. Now the instance you just created, should be started as well.

First click on PBX-Designer on the left (Installed apps), then click on the instance to make the row turn blue. Now click on the Start-button.

[edit] Create the PBX-Designer App object via the PBX Manager

Close AP Manager and open PBX Manager:
Click on the “AP PBX-Designer” icon and click on the green “Create the object now” button.

The successful creation of the object is signaled.

[edit] Give users access to PBX-Designer via templates

Click on Templates inside the PBX Manager, and enable the PBX-Designer app for the correct template (typically Config Admin).

Now the PBX-Designer app is ready to be used by all users with the Config Admin template, by clicking on the 9- squares icon in the lower-right corner.

[edit] License activation

The app can now be used.
The entire content can be viewed and tested.
However, a license is required to transfer the settings to the PBX.
After the start, you will see in the dashboard, alternatively in the menu under "License") notes which information is required for a license. You can start an email from the app and fill in the missing information to trigger an order.

After ordering you will receive a file with your desired license key.
You have to activate it as follows:
In the app, go to the menu "License - License information".
Click on the "Upload license file" button.
Select the license file you have received. Only after accepting the conditions and EULA you have the possibility to upload the file.


After the successful upload you will see the activated license.

[edit] Usage

It is important to us to achieve the highest possible usability, which makes an explanation of the functions unnecessary.
Unfortunately, this does not always succeed.
Here you can find a video showing the setup of the different app functions step-by-step.

[edit] Troubleshooting

If something goes wrong, a logfile is required to analyze the problem.
Logging must be enabled in two steps: first on the app, then on the instance.
Go to AP Manager, and select PBX-Designer on the left under Installed apps. Now directly click Diagnostics (without selecting an instance first).
Enable logging and click Save.
Now select the PBX-Designer instance (the complete row turns blue when selected), and again click the Diagnostics button.
At least select the App trace flag (depending on the problem), and Save.
Now reproduce the problem.
The logfile can be visualized via the Display link, or downloaded via the Save link.
