Instant Messaging over SIP

  • API – find-extension function was added to the API. This function returns a JSON array of extensions according to the given filter conditions. The typical usage for this function is to get the extension ID for the given extension number.
  • Voicemail 
    • It is now possible to upload personal voicemail greetings via the User Portal.
    • All voicemail settings were moved from My Extension -> Settings -> Extension Settings -> General tab to the new Voicemail tab in the same location.

    Bug Fixes

    • User password reset – in some cases, the user password would reset changing any user parameter.
    • Storage notification stopped working (on version 5.077).
    • Intrusion email notification – it was possible to edit the email address from two locations – System Misc. and Intrusion Prevention. However, System Misc. did not update the email address properly. The Intrusion Prevention email address field was removed from System Misc.
    • Backup failed when there was a large number of recorded files (in case the backup included recorded calls).
    • Follow-me uses wrong ring-back
    • Restore dialog would not close after pressing “Restore” and pressing it again would lead to an error message. The dialogue now closes after “Restore” is pressed.
