    • Select the admin template and give him the admin-app permission and also the licence.
    • Now users with either template can use the appropriate apps.

Configuring the Recordings-App

App Configuration

The only change that needs to be done here is configuring the PBX name into the Admin-App, or else it wont correctly record the calls.

  • Now you need to set the PBX name into the settings of the app, which is found in the RecordingsAdmin - app
    • After opening the app, you can open a sidebar-menu with the upper right menu button.
    • Below you see the setting which is called "PBX name". Here you set the name you gave the PBX.

Configuring the CDR settings of the PBX

For the PBX to fetch the data and create the CDR's, you need to check if it can create CDR's and where they get saved. For this, the Devices-Interface is used. After checking the checkbox for CDR's, you need to setup where it gets saved, and what type the CDR is going to be.

CDR Checkbox

CDR Checkbox
  • To fully function, you need to activate the CDR option in the PBX.
    • To do that, you need to select the PBX - Config tab
      • Here you need to check the "Generate CDRs" checkbox.

Configuring CDR

CDR Configuration
  • In this step you are going to setup the CDR tab in the PBX
    • Those settings you can find under Gateway - CDR1.
      • The following settings need to be made:
        • Type: HTTPS
        • Adress: here you need to either set the IP Adress of your application platform, or the name of it which is resolved from your DNS Server.
        • Method: External (POST)
        • Path: Here you need to put a case-sensitive URL: "/domain/recordings/cdr".

Checking the Recordings-App object


When you create the Recordings-Object, it could happen that the Websocket and Admin - checkbox isn't ticked, so navigating to the objects, selecting the "Recordings" - Object and check if the checkboxes are checked.

  • It could happen that Websocket and Admin isn't ticked in "Objects".
    • To check this, you need to navigate to PBX - Objects
    • Here you select the Recordings object and select the first App tab.
    • Both checkboxes should be ticked.

Configuring the VoIP-Interface through the Devices-Interface


If you want the softphones to record too, then the SIP-Trunk needs the URL you inserted earlier too. Also, the Media-Relay checkbox needs to be checked.

  • Since you also wanna record any call that goes through your SIP-trunk, you need to put a URL into the SIP.
    • For this, you select the Gateway - SIP tab.
      • Make sure that the URL is put correctly and also the Media-Relay is on.

Configuring the Phones through the Devices-Interface

For the phones to actually start recording as soon as they make a call, you need to set them up. This is done in the phone settings through the Devices Interface. Here another URL is going to be set in, so it can store the recording, and configure it so it starts to record instantly

Setting up the URL

  • To actually record the calls, the phones need to be set up correctly.

Setting up the Recording-Tab

  • To fully function, the following changes need to be made in the Recording-Tab
    • Mode: Transparent: This means that the call will be recorded instantly.
    • Recorder: HTTP Server

After this, the app is free to use.
