[FAQ] How can I limit access to certain menu’s?

Below post is an example how to limit access to certain Phone menus in order to prevent users for example to utilize the DND functionality or the call forward.


A HTTP Web Server is needed to host the new menu file.


Note: This has been tested with UCS 4.0.0 or later and older software Versions may not offer the same possibilities!



SPIP6000 Example:


<key key.SSIP6000.27.function.prim="Applications" mb.main.home="" mb.main.idleTimeout="10"/>

 SPIP331 Example:


<key key.SPIP331.34.function.prim="Applications" mb.main.home="" mb.main.idleTimeout="10"/>


Example content of settings.html:


<a href="Key:Status">Status</a>
<a href="Key:Setup">Settings</a>
<a href="Key:Directories">Directory</a>
<a href="Key:CallList">Call Lists</a>


The key.x.y.function.prim function is used to assign the Phones Microbrowser to the Menu Key.

The mb.main.home function is used to point the Microbrowser homepage to the file containing the limited menu.


When the Menu Button is now pressed the phone will instead show the above Web Page









The above screen captures show a limited Menu on a SSIP6000 with only the settings option as an example. The provided HTML example above does include the Status Menu, Caller List and the Directory.
