Integrating with external systems
In many video conferencing deployments, Pexip Infinity will be integrated with other third-party systems and products. An example is Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM), which can be integrated with Pexip Infinity so that when users initiate the Ad Hoc Conferencing feature on supported endpoints, the resulting conference will be hosted on Pexip Infinity.
This type of integration requires that communications from the external system are authenticated by Pexip Infinity. (Note that the credentials for this authentication are distinct from those used to access the Pexip Infinity management API.)
Some external systems (such as CUCM 8.6.2) only support access over HTTP rather than the secure HTTPS protocol, so you have the option to enable this if required.
To configure Pexip Infinity with the authentication credentials and protocol to be used by systems which do not use the management API, go to . The options available are:
|Enable HTTP access for external systems||Access for external systems is over HTTPS by default. If this box is selected, access over HTTP is also permitted.|
|External system username||The username presented to Pexip Infinity by external systems attempting to authenticate with it.|
|External system password||The password presented to Pexip Infinity by external systems attempting to authenticate with it.|
