Import Data source

We can import CDR's to charge customers and print their registered calls on their invoices.

In this section, we can create Import data source location (-s), it's used to configure the Auto CDR Processing and to import CDR files from a specified location.

To create Import data source location, navigate to Config → Voice → Import data source

import data source

Click on the Add button located at the top right corner of the table:

Add

The following types of data source location can be used:

  • FTP

    Add source

  • SFTP

    SFTP

  • Local

    Add local source

The following parameters need to be configured to add a new data source to import from:

  • Title - provide a relevant name for the data source location;

  • Data source type - select a type from the drop-down list:

  • FTP - a selected value requires to specify Host IP address, Port, Login and Password of the server where CDR files are located;

  • SFTP - a selected value requires to specify RSA private key and the same parameters as for FTP of the server where CDR files are located;

  • Local - a selected value requires to specify the local Folder path value. It implies that CDR files are located on the Splynx server, e.g. /home/splynx-admin/auto_cdr;

    Once the data source is added, you can test the connection, edit the data source or delete it using the buttons provided in the Actions column:

    Important

  • When using a (S)FTP server as a CDR data source - make sure that connection is successful;

  • In case of using a Local data source type (storage on Splynx server), make sure that the folder with the CDR files has the correct permissions and splynx user is the owner;

  • The CDR files must have unique names as Splynx checks files by their names and if a file with a particular name has been imported into Splynx and the same file has since been updated, Splynx will not re-load the updated file as that file has already been imported.
