Configuration Templates

Most configuration parameters are located in only one template file, but some are included in two or more files.

You can rearrange the parameters within the template, move parameters to new files, or create your own configuration files from parameters you want. This flexibility is especially useful when you want to apply specific settings to a group of phones. You can create and name as many configuration files as you want and your configuration files can contain any combination of parameters.

The following table lists the template directories and files included in the UC software download.

Note that techsupport.cfg is available from Polycom Customer Support for troubleshooting and debugging.
