Schedule an Audio Conference with ANI/CLI Authentication

   

The following procedure is for host accounts only.

    

CLI (caller line identification), or ANI (automatic number identification), is a form of caller ID, a telephony intelligent service that sends a caller's phone number before the call is answered. Any dial-in caller with a host site account can be authenticated and placed into the correct audio conference without needing to enter a meeting number.

    

If you have a host account, and your site is enabled for ANI/CLI, you can:

    
  •      

    Schedule a meeting with dial-in ANI/CLI teleconferencing authentication.

         

  •      

    Be authenticated whenever you dial into any ANI/CLI enabled audio conference to which you have been invited by email. The Call-in authentication is established by mapping your email address to a phone number in your user profile.

         

  •      

    Specify a call-in authentication PIN to prevent "spoofers" from using your number to dial into an audio conference.

         

   
       
1    Log in to your Training Center website.
2    On the navigation bar, under Host a Meeting, select Schedule a Meeting.       

The Schedule a Meeting page appears.

     
3    Select Change audio options.       

The Audio Options dialog box appears.

     
4    Check Enable audio conference CLI authentication when participants call in if it is not already checked.       
Note             

Caller authentication is only available to participants if they are invited to a CLI/ANI enabled audio conference by email during the meeting scheduling process. Any participant invited to the audio conference once it has begun cannot use caller authentication.

      
     

Call-in Authentication for Your Host Account

   

If you have a host account, and your site is enabled for call-in authentication, you can set authentication for any phone number listed in your user profile. Your call will be authenticated by mapping your email address against specified phone numbers in your profile whenever you dial into a CLI (caller line identification), or ANI (automatic number identification) enabled audio conference to which you have been invited by email.

    

Caller authentication will only be available if you have been invited to a CLI/ANI (automatic number identification) enabled audio conference by email during the meeting scheduling process. Caller authentication will not be available if you are dialing in to a CLI/ANI enabled audio conference:

    
  •      

    from an invitation other than email.

         

  •      

    from an email invitation originated during the meeting.

         

   

Specify Call-in Authentication for Your Host Account

        
1     Log in to your Meeting Center website.
2    On the navigation bar, select My WebEx.
3    Select My Profile.
4    Under Personal Information, select the Call-in authentication checkbox beside any phone number for which you want dial-in authentication.
5    Select Update.

Specify an Authentication PIN

   

If you have a host account, and your site is enabled for CLI (caller line identification), or ANI (automatic number identification) audio conferences, you can use an authentication PIN to prevent "spoofers" from using your number to dial into an audio conference.

    

If your site administrator sets the authentication PIN as mandatory for all accounts using call-in authentication on your site, then you must specify a PIN number or caller authentication will be disabled for your account.

   
        
1    Log in to your Meeting Center website.
2    On the navigation bar, select My WebEx.
3    Select My Profile.       

The My WebEx Profile page appears.

     
4    Under Personal Information, in the PIN: text box, enter a 4-digit PIN number of your choosing.
5    Select Update.
