PBX Improvements


External Storage Management

A new module allows the management of remote resources. The module allows configuring remote storage locations to be used in other modules. External storage can be used by Backup & Restore, CDR Settings, and Call Recording modules.

Backup to External/Cloud Storage

Backups can now be saved to a remote S3 storage. The auto-upload details should be set up in the Task Manager where the external resource used needs to be defined:

Uploading Recorded Calls to External Storage

It is now possible to use an external storage resource as a destination for call recordings (SETTINGS -> PBX Settings -> Call Recording). After selecting the remote location it is possible to set the upload intervals.

CDR Upload & 3rd Party Billing Integration

A new CDR Settings dialogue was added (SETTINGS -> PBX Settings -> CDR Settings), allowing to set CDR upload to an external storage (configured in External Resources). This allows easy integration with 3rd part billing and other systems.
