Description: The purpose of this article is to provide a detailed overview of the Advanced Provisioner App’s Interface.

The Advance Provisioner App serves as the primary digital workspace for configuring advanced settings on provisioned devices. 

Upon logging into the app, users will be presented with the app interface displaying the Devices tab as the default view.

The interface can be divided into four sections:

  • The Top Horizontal Menu Bar: the main purpose of this element is to enable users to switch between multiple accounts and other Ooma Enterprise apps they are authorized to access. 

The Top Horizontal Menu Bar is a global element of the Ooma Enterprise system which is present in numerous OE apps. To learn more about this panel, read the corresponding article available via this link.

  • The Main Space of the App: this section of the app is dedicated to presenting information, with the content being dynamically determined by the active tab. 

  • The Tab Selector: within this area, you'll find the tabs that you can switch between.

There are two tabs available here:

  • Devices tab: the purpose of this tab is to provide you with a convenient interface for listing all provisioned devices and offering an action button to add new devices.

There are two main functional elements on this page

  • The List of Provisioned Devices: this list includes device tiles with their parameters listed. 

Additionally, you will notice a pencil icon on each record of this list. By clicking on it, you will access the device configuration mode.

For every device from any manufacturer, there is a roster of configuration tabs, each containing different parameters. Once you have added a new device, you will have the opportunity to customize a distinct set of configuration tabs tailored to that specific device. 

To learn more about all provisionable devices and their corresponding configuration tabs, you should read the "Advanced Provisioner - Configuration Tabs" article available via this link.

  • The Search Bar: it allows you to locate a specific device in the list of provisioned devices by its name.

  • Account Settings tab: here you can find the primary "account settings" tabs that can be set at the account level, ensuring that all newly added devices will adopt the parameters you have defined. 

Account settings are not global. There is a global default (which is the Inherits from the Defaults) which are static settings on the server. Account Settings are account defaults the admin for the account wishes to be applied on all devices in a given account. 

Account administrators have access to Provider Settings, which is a level of defaults above Account Settings. All devices inherit settings in this order: 
Global → Provider/Reseller → Account → Device.

There are five primary configuration tabs that can be set at the account level.

The parameter sets within the Account Settings configuration tabs differ slightly from the configuration tabs with the same names accessible when configuring or reconfiguring an added device. This difference exists because certain parameters are meant to be directly inherited from the Defaults without any possible reconfiguration at the Account level. 

In the following articles describing these configuration tabs, you will find all the parameters, but it's important to note that, at the Account Setting level, you have the option to configure fewer parameters.

Below, you will discover links that direct you to the relevant articles for each of the configuration tabs accessible on the Account Settings tab:
