How-to: display a single switch to an end-user
In order to ensure that a switch is displayed to an end-user in the PBX web interface or UC app that switch must be included as condition in a rule in an extension. That works like this example:
- First create a new switch ‘test switch’ in menu Actions/Switches.
- Then go to menu Dial Plan/Extensions and create in e.g. extension 301 a new rule ‘call external number’ to your mobile.
- Choose as condition ‘switches’
- Select the ‘test switch’ that you created in step 1.
- Set Value to ‘on’.
That’s it! You have just configured a call forward to your mobile phone that will only work if the ‘test switch’ switch is set to ‘on’.
If you now log in to the app with user 301, you will see the switch and you can operate it.
