Selective recording rules can be used to define when an extension should be recorded in a more complex way based on various CDR fields.
Recording rule configuration
You can add / modify / delete recording rules under the Administration / Recording Rules menu.
The following table describes the available fields in the basic recording rule configuration:
Name of the recording rule
|Description||Longer description of the recording rule|
|Rule Sections||The rule logic|
A recording rule consists of several rule sections. The sections are evaluated in sequence one after the other. The recorder engine will perform the first matching section's action, and the rest will not be evaluated.
Each section defines the desired action and various filters that will be evaluated in order to determine if the section matches a conversation or not. The logical relation between the filters is AND so that all of the filters should match the conversation (within a section).
If a section has no filters, then it will always be evaluated as matching. Such section can be used to define a default behavior, practically as the last section of a rule. If no section matches a conversation, then no action will be performed, that is the conversation will not be recorded.
The following table describes the available fields within a recording rule section:
Name of the section.
What should the system do when this section matches a conversation.
|CTI Triggered Recording|
If the recording is not triggered automatically by the PBX, but the recorder has to initiate the recording, then this option has to be turned on.
Example: when a Cisco extension's recording mode is Selective.
Defines when this section should be performed.
The following CDR fields can be used in the filters:
