UCP User Templates

(Lorne Gaetz) #1

For those who have not stumbled onto this feature already, note that there is a new feature in UCP and User Management for UCP user templates:

Must try and find some time next week to test this, I remember how frustrating it was when the ability to template was lost in v14 (although there were many benefits to the new version).


Good news, what is the specific version of userman/ucp modules where this feature is/will be introduced within PBXact 15 ?

Hi @MAWalker Ucp v15.0.8 and userman v15.0.48 is the latest edge release which has this feature. If you want to use in PBXact then use fwconsole ma downloadinstall <module> --tag=<version> . We will try to push these modules to PBXact by early next week.


Thanks for your prompt reply.

I assume these updates will be available on the ‘stable’ track of PBXact 15 at some point (as opposed to just the ‘edge’ track) ?

(Kapil Gupta) #6

Yes will try to push early next week after our QA approval.


That’s great. I will wait until it’s fully QA’d & on the stable track no problem. Thanks.

This. It is a huge PITA to have a random thing show up like this. Really, really ,really stupid.

I am not sure of the thought process here anyway. You don’t need an extension at all for templating. Someone somewhere over-thought/over-engineered this.

I wrote a script to “clone” layouts between users and I would guess this was somehow derived from that. It was all CLI so this was probably a solution to “slap a gui on it”

I actually use this regularly and it works great

Wow, my post was hidden. So here you go with the clean message. I can’t seem to find how to edit the hidden message.

Why would you go ahead and create the FreePBXUCPTemplateCreator extension and user automatically ? I understand it’s your default template and it can simply be deleted if unused, but you are creating extensions automatically in all PBXs when you have no idea if this extension is in conflict with anything else in the PBX.

I think you should reconsider this decision.

We can view the flagged post. I suspect it was the profanity that prompted the flag - we like to keep things “mostly” civil here :wink:

I was on-board with the auto create extension/user for UCP templating, it may even have been my idea but I don’t remember for sure. But seeing the comments here and realizing that it does work differently than most features in FreePBX, makes me think we should revisit:
