You have two options to get your phone to be provisioned:
- Set up a DHCP server
- Manually tell each phone where to get the provisioning information
You may want to manually configure the phones if you are only trying Wazo or if your network configuration does not allow the phones to access the Wazo DHCP server.
You may want to set up a DHCP server if you have a significant number of phones to connect, as no manual intervention will be required on each phone.
Wazo includes a DHCP server that facilitate the auto-provisioning of telephony devices. It is not activated by default.
There are a few things to know about the peculiarities of the included DHCP server:
- it only answers DHCP requests from supported devices.
- it only answers DHCP requests from the VoIP subnet (see network configuration).
This means that if your phones are on the same broadcast domain than your computers, and you would like the DHCP server on your Wazo to handle both your phones and your computers, it won't do it.
The DHCP server is configured via

Warning: If you uninstall a plugin that is used by some of your devices, they will be left in an unconfigured state and won't be associated with another plugin automatically.
It's possible that there will be more than one plugin compatible with a given device. In these cases, the difference between the two plugins is usually just the firmware version the plugin targets. If you are unsure about which version you should install, you should look for more information on the vendor's website.
It's good practice to only install the plugins you need and no more.
By default, the list of plugins available for installation are the stable plugins for the officially supported devices.
This can be changed with
http://provd.wazo.community/plugins/2/stable/-- community supported devices "stable" repository
http://provd.wazo.community/plugins/2/testing/-- officially supported devices "testing" repository
http://provd.wazo.community/plugins/2/archive/-- officially supported devices "archive" repository
The difference between the stable and testing repositories is that the latter might contain plugins that are not working properly or are still in development.
The archive repository contains plugins that were once in the stable repository.
After setting a new URL, you must refresh the list of installable plugins with
If you have set up a DHCP server on Wazo and the phones can access it, you can skip this section.

You can then power on your devices on your LAN. For example, after you power on an Aastra 6731i and
give it the time to boot and maybe upgrade its firmware, you should then see the phone has its first
line configured as 'autoprov', and if you

You can then dial from your Aastra 6731i the provisioning code associated with a line of one of your
user. You will hear a prompt thanking you and your device should then reboot in the next few
seconds. Once the device has rebooted, it will then be properly configured for your user to use it.
And also, if you
GET /devices, you'll see the device with with
