IP Phone Auto Provisioning Options

Yeastar P-Series PBX System provides a variety of Auto Provisioning options for IP phones that can meet general needs for end users. This topic introduces the settings that can be configured via Auto Provisioning.

General settings (preferences & codecs)

General settings provide the most common needs for extension users, such as phone language, date and time, etc. These settings can be auto provisioned by a template, so that the settings can be applied to multiple devices globally.

For more information, see Apply a New Template to a Provisioned IP Phone/Gateway.

Extension registration

An extension will be registered on the device after Auto Provisioning. If you change extension registration settings (such as registration password, registration name, SIP UDP/TCP port), you need to reprovision your devices.

Note: Limit of extension registration
  • For IP phone: Only one extension can be assigned to a phone via Auto Provisioning.
  • For DECT phone: Each handset registers with an extension via Auto Provisioning.

Function key

Various function keys are available for you to customize for each extension user, such as BLF, speed dial, etc. The function keys are associated with extensions, and can be applied when auto provisioning phones.

For more information about the function keys, see Auto Provision Function Keys for Phones.

Device firmware

Yeastar P-Series PBX System allows you to update the device firmware in bulk by Auto Provisioning.

For more information about firmware update, see Update Phone Firmware via Auto Provisioning.

Additional settings

In addition to the above settings, if you need to configure additional settings for the devices, you can also customize a template with additional parameters, and provision devices globally to apply the additional settings.

For more information, see Create a Custom Auto Provisioning Template.
