  • Address Book on Snom C520


Contents

There are two ways to import an address book on the Snom C520:

  • manual or
  • automatic .


Manually import the address book

See the Admin and Provisioning_Manual -> Page 60



Automatically import the address book

If you would like the C520 to downloads the address book automatically, please do the following:

  1. Add one of following two parameters in your provisioning file:
    file.contact.directory.append
    or
    file.contact.directory.overwrite
    <--- recommended, in order to always get the most recent data

    See more information about these parameters in the Admin and Provisioning Manual  -> Page 137

    You can use two different formats to configure these settings. Assuming you would like the C520 to download the address book from http://<IP_address>/C520/file.xml, you have two options:

    CFG format

    You can add the following in a cfg provisioning file:

    file.contact.directory.overwrite=http://<IP_address>/C520/file.xml

    XML format

    You can add the following in an XML provisioning file, within the <settings></settings> tag:

    <file>
    	<contact>
    		<directory>
    			<overwrite>http://<IP_address>/C520/file.xml</overwrite>
    		</directory>
    	</contact>
    </file>
  2. It is important to know how the file http://<IP_address>/C520/file.xml should look like.
    There are 2 possibilities:

    1. Typical C520 format (example: directory.xml)

    2. (but only works starting with firmware version v1.40.35B) General Snom format (example: snom_phonebook_2.xml)
