Wildix PBX Configuration via WMS

Since all Algo devices discussed within this document are SIP devices, the only configuration necessary on the Wildix system is to add users for the devices to register into. Each device is simply a SIP endpoint on the Wildix PBX. To access WMS, open a browser and navigate to the PBX url (e.g. mysystem.wildix.com or mysystem.wildixin.com). Login with ‘admin’ account or any other account that has the correct privileges to add user accounts to the system.

Adding a Wildix User

Once logged in, the administrator will see the following near the top left of the page. The icons left to right represent Users, Trunks, Devices, Dialplans and Settings. Select the users icon as is done in the screenshot (notice the users icon is white/selected), the admin will see the Users, Groups, PBXes and Phonebooks options below the set of icons).  


  • Click on Users to show list of all of the users in the Wildix PBX and gain access to the ability to add users. Once clicking on Usersthe following options will be displayed below the current list of users: 


  • Select the + symbol to add a user and fill out the User data as shown below. Note that the user in the example below is ‘1234’ and that their Login is set to ‘1234’ as well. However, also make note that there is no password set for this user yet


  • After entering the user details click on OK, then select the new user in the list and click on the ‘Set passwords button below the users list. See the screenshot above that has the + option in it to add users. The Set passwords button is in that same row on the configuration UI


  • Enter the password desired or auto generate the passwords via the Generate button. Once the passwords have been filled in, click Ok

You now have a user in the Wildix system that can be used by the Algo devices. Note that the fields is the Wildix user relate to the configuration parameters on the Algo devices in the following way.
