Quobis wac settings to deploy Quobis collaborator
Aliases and personal URL configuration
A user’s “personal URL” is automatically composed of the base system URL (eg,
https://collaborator.company.com) followed by the user alias, given as a result a pattern like:
Users are allowed to change their alias through the application in the “Profile section”, as long as the new alias does not conflict with other alias in the system.
On the other hand, even when the users can create new alias, there is another “Personal URL” that always works, cannot be changed and which is composed of the base URL followed by the username.
Depending on the type of user accessing the endpoint the system resolves the URL differently:
If the user is logged in it will resolve it on the user’s domain
For an anonymous user the default domain is used
To call an specific
user@domain, you’ll need to include both parameters. I.e.
When a user is created, if the system administrator does not provide an alias, then, the Quobis WAC will provide one according to the
alias parameter as configured in the
[user] section of
aliasis set to
true, then Quobis WAC copies the
usernameinto the alias field.
aliasis set to
false, then Quobis WAC copies the user’s
UIDinto the alias field.
There is also another parameter in the same user configuration section that allows to create a blacklist of forbidden aliases. In summary, Quobis WAC will not allow to set aliases that:
Conflict with another UUID
Conflict with another username
Conflict with another alias
Belong to the alias blacklist
Example shown below of the
wac.ini users section:
[users] alias = true forbiddenKeyWords = 'login,index'
Please note that the “personal URL” feature cannot be deactivated. A workaround to avoid unwanted calls that the end-user himself can do is to set the Personal URL to a long random string, so a potential attacker cannot guess it. Another way to deactivate this feature to every user is to block those specific URLs in the
On the other hand, please note that the “Personal URL” max string size on the application is set by the variable
PROFILE_LINK_MAX_LENGTH at the
conf.js file and defaults to 90 characters.
The Quobis collaborator leverages the phonebook functionality of Quobis WAC in order to show contacts to specific user or group of users. If you want to use phonebooks in your deployment, please refer to the phonebook phonebook configuration.
Simultaneous call support
In order to support or limit the multi-call support you can modify the Quobis signaling server to allow or reject calls when you are already on a call. This could be useful for some scenarios or for licence limitation configuration for your customers.
This is directly configured on SippoAS.qss.conferencesstate, more info here
