[edit] Description

Directions refers to countries, or perhaps to a satellite network. The term merely describes the direction in which the call is routed.

Destinations are more concrete concepts of the calls course.
Example:
Let's say we are dialing number 37068547771. According to this number the Direction is Lithuania, but the Destination is the mobile network Bite. Destinations are determined by the Prefix which is unique for each Destination. The Prefix in the example is 370685.

[edit] Who can configure and use destinations?

  • Only admin can create, edit, delete directions and destinations and access Direction and Destinations pages.

Enter destination's prefix, name and click Create. Now you can add it to Destinations Groups.

[edit] Import

  • QUESTION: How do you import destinations from a file?
  • ANSWER: You can import them using the Tariff import script. Just create a dummy tariff, add dummy Rates, and import. Destinations will be created automatically. Later you can delete the Tariff. Just remember to enter prefixes in E.164 format.

NOTE: You can get a CSV file with all Destinations in the Tariffs window. It is suitable for rate entering and importing back to MOR.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When adding new Destinations, make sure you include them in some Destination Group. Otherwise you will get corrupted invoices if the user uses a retail tariff.

  • rename multiple Destinations by specifying a regexp pattern.
