First, you need to define a conference room number range for the ‘’default’’ context via the Services -> IPBX -> IPBX Configuration -> Contexts page.


Adding a conference room number range to the default context

You can then create a conference room via the Services -> IPBX -> IPBX Settings -> Conference rooms page.


Creating conference room 4010

In this example, we have only filled the ‘’Name’’ and ‘’Number’’ fields, the others have been left to their default value.

As you can see, there’s quite a few options when adding / editing a conference room. Here’s a description of the most common one:

General Tab

  • Pin code: Protects your conference room with a PIN number. People trying to join the room will be asked for the PIN code.
  • Organizer Pin Code: This pin code is used to define an organizer for the conference, organizer will have the right to mute or kick participants with the Conferences monitoring in uc assistant application.
  • Waiting room: Once this option is checked the users are not able to speak in the room and have to wait the organizer to join the conference.


You must define a general pin code if you want to be able to organize conferences and use the organizers features.
