Brand prompts for the Conferencing voice application

Link copied to clipboard

Say you want the Conference voice application to play your custom prompts to users.

  1. Record a voice prompt, e.g., “Welcome to Armadillo Telecom” greeting, in the .wav, .mp3, or .mp4 format.
    Give the prompt a proper name that corresponds to the prompt type, e.g., "conf_welcome.mp3" for a welcome message. If you need to configure other brand prompts, please contact the PortaOne support team for the proper name for other prompts.
  2. Copy the prompt file to your PortaSwitch server, e.g., to the /porta_var/tmp folder.
  3. Log in to a processing node via SSH.
  4. Convert the prompt into the .au and .g729 formats using the PortaOne converter –

    For this, run the following command:

    /home/porta-um/scripts/ --timeout 14 --config /etc/porta-one/psmsc/periodic–tasks–<SIP_IP>.conf --debug <file_name>

    where file_name is the name of the file, and SIP_IP is the IP of the corresponding sip mu-bundle on your PortaSwitch server.


    The file name: conf_welcome.mp3

    The SIP IP:

    The command:

    /home/porta-um/scripts/ --timeout 14 --config /etc/porta-one/psmsc/periodic-tasks- --debug conf_welcome.mp3
    You can also convert all files on the server of the .mp3 format at once. Specify “*” as the file name, e.g., *.mp3 will convert all files in the .mp3 format.
  1. After the conversion, you need to change the prompt names using the following command:
    rename 'new_' '' *.au *.g729

    The file names after the conversion: and new_conf_welcome.g729

    The command:

    rename 'new_' '' *.au *.g729

    The file names after applying the command: and conf_welcome.g729

  1. Create new folders to place the brand prompts there. For this, run the following commands:
    mkdir /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/<your_custom_name> 
    mkdir /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/<your_custom_name><language>  
    mkdir /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/<your_custom_name><language>/conferencing

    where <your_custom_name> is the name of the folder for your custom prompts. The same folder name should be specified in the Brand prompts field of a voice application settings in step 9.

    Instead of the <language> for the second folder, use the two-letter code of the language the prompts are recorded in.


    If the folder name is US_conferencing and the prompt language is English, then the command will be:

    mkdir /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing
    mkdir /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing/en
    mkdir /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing/en/conferencing
  1. Place the brand prompts in the newly created <your_custom_name>/<language>/conferencing folder by using the following commands:
    mv /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/<your_custom_name>/<language>/conferencing
    mv conf_welcome.g729 /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/<your_custom_name>/<language>/conferencing

    For example, if the folder name is US_conferencing and the preferred language name is English, then the command will be:

    mv /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing/en/conferencing
    mv conf_welcome.g729 /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing/en/conferencing

    If you want to move all the files of a specific format at once to a needed folder, then use *.au and *.g279 instead of the file names. So the commands will be:

    mv *.au /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing/en/conferencing
    mv *.g729 /porta_var/psmsc/custom-files/prompts/brands/us_conferencing/en/conferencing
  1. Repeat steps 1-7 for each processing node of the installation.
  2. Configure the brand prompts on the Voice applications page of the web interface.

    Go to Prompts & notifications > Prompts customization and specify the folder name in the Brand prompts field created in step 6, e.g., US_conferencing.
