Flexisip account manager
Flexisip account manager provides building blocks to help VoIP software developers create secure user account management systems. It includes:
FlexiAPI is a REST API for user accounts creation by users and/or administrators.
The REST API calls can easily be integrated into an administration portal if you have one. The main supported features are related to the management of SIP accounts (create, edit, activate/deactivate, delete, name admin, etc.), user identity validation via email or SMS, one-time password generation, user authentication via digest or hashed password algorithm (SHA256), and generation of per user provisioning files and associated contact list.
Remote provisioning server
Flexisip account manager's provisioning server is able to generate configuration files compatible with Linphone.
The Linphone apps support remote provisioning, which consists in downloading a Linphone configuration file (linphonerc) in XML format from a HTTP server URI. The values defined in the configuration file are applied to the app. Many Linphone parameters can be preconfigured that way. It can be used for static provisioning (the same parameters are applied to all app users) or dynamic provisioning (a per user configuration file).
