Yeastar MyPBX Enterprise. SMDR/CDR data format and connection settings

This data is being extracted with help of the "Advanced PBX Data Logger" software only. It may not applicable for other software titles.

Customized configuration


The system configuration files included asterisk configurations are stored into database first and then logistically generated by the background applications. If you would like to manually modify the configurations in /etc/asterisk/, the configuration file will be updated when customers apply the changes on WEB GUI next time. Reboot the device will result in the update of configuration file as well. Namely, the customized modifications by clients can't be saved successfully.


If you want to save the user-defined data, you must save it to the database. In the directory of "/persistent/var/lib/asterisk/db/", you may find a directory "custom-cfg" to store user-defined data. You should place an appropriate configuration file under this directory. Modified data must saved in "/persistent/var/lib/asterisk/db/custom-cfg/manager_custom.conf".
