Auto Provisioning


Supported since version 2.0.

 Auto-provisioning is intended to configure remotely IP Telephony Devices.

 To enable auto-provisioning an account should be assigned CPE# and Auto-Provisioning type.

 Depending on provisioning type there is profile template. The templates are stored in /home/ssp/etc/provisioning directory. Each softswitch environment has own sub-directory for own set of profiles:

  • Environment #1:
    • /home/ssp/etc/provisioning
  • Environment #2: 
    • /home/ssp/etc/provisioning/env2
  • Environment #3:
    • /home/ssp/etc/provisioning/env3
  • Environment #N:
    • /home/ssp/etc/provisioning/envN

If an environment does not have own profile, default one is used from /home/ssp/etc/provisioning directory.

Profile can have macros, which are substituted by real data from environment or account settings.
