[edit] Description

Number Pool is array of various numbers. Number Pool can be used for Device or Provider as CallerIDs. This functionality gives you an ability to send different caller number on each Call. When Number Pool is chosen as CallerID in Device or Provider, during the Call system takes random number from all array of numbers which belongs to selected Number Pool. It is useful if you want to send different CallerID on each Call even if it is made from same Device.

Number Pools are also used in Static Blacklist/Whitelist to deny/allow specific numbers or prefixes.

[edit] Usage

Go to SETTINGS –> Billing –> Functions –> Number Pools


Here you are able to see list of all Number Pools which you have:


Also you can Image:icon_add.pngAdd new Number Pool, image:icon_edit.png edit or delete old one. Click on details icon to see array of numbers in chosen Number Pool.


Here you are able to add new numbers from GUI or import from file (any number, leading "+" or "#" or a "%" wildcard is allowed in a number), delete the old ones or search for specific ones in a list. Wildcards such as "%" or "_" are available to use in the search form (e.g. search for "370%" will result in finding all numbers that begin with 370). If it is necessary to search for numbers such as "370%", the wildcard has to be escaped: "370\%". Characters are also available (e.g. Unknown).

[edit] Number Pool as Device CallerID

Go to Device settings and choose Number Pool as CallerID


[edit] Number Pool as Device CallerID when CallerID is invalid

Go to Device settings Advanced section and choose two Number Pools:

  • Number Pool with valid CallerIDs: - CallerIDs will be checked against this Pool
  • Random Number from a Number Pool: - if CallerID is NOT found in a Number Pool set in Number Pool with valid CallerIDs it will be changed to a random CallerID from this number pool.

[edit] Number Pool as Provider CallerID

Go to Provider settings and choose Number Pool as CallerID


[edit] Number Pool as Blacklist / Whitelist

Go to User settings or Provider settings and choose Number Pool as Blacklist / Whitelist.

Note: when using Number Pools for Blacklist/Whitelist, it is possible to upload prefixes. To do so, just import prefixes with percent (%) or pound (#) sign at the end (example: 370% will act as prefix for 370xxxxxxxx number or 370######## each # represents ONE digit so using it this way you can determine the length of acceptable CallerIDs ).
Note: It is posible to upload 'empty' word, that means CLI is empty.
