Role Based Administration

Role Based Administration

System administration can be delegated to various users in order to perform role based administration. An unlimited number of users and groups can be created by system administrator(s). Each user will then only have access to the sections of PBXware menus according to the group membership permissions.

This is commonly used to allow management, operators, and supervisors access to the sections of PBXware to which they have adequate knowledge and experience.

Standard and Advanced Options

PBXware has been designed with simplicity and extensive configuration options as primary goals. In order to achieve both goals administration has standard and advanced modes throughout all sections.

Standard Options

Standard Options

Standard mode is designed to allow an easy 'no brainier' method of administration as the level of configuration knowledge needed is based on common fields of information (Name, email address etc.). This is possible to achieve since PBXware uses a powerful template system which pre-configures all advanced options leaving only common information values to be entered.

Standard Options

Advanced Options

The advanced mode options, on the other hand, require a much better system knowledge in order to fine tune the system settings for various applications and usages. This manual provides detailed information for advanced options. However, administrators should bear in mind that extensive training and hands on experience is required in order to be able to administer advanced sections effectively. For simplicity, all options available in the standard options are not repeated in this manual under the advanced options.
