    Articles related to customization are written for a technical audience who have experience in web development. Knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are required.

    Developers can integrate these parameters into their main help desk tool to control Calling Card behavior.

    Parameter Description
    -pin_code <nnnnnn> A session automatically starts with a six-digit PIN code.
    -channel A channel session starts using the channel associated with the particular Calling Card as set during Calling Card generation in the Administration Center.
    -cf1, -cf2, -cf3, -cf4, -cf5, -cf6 Custom fields 1-6 are validated when a session is started.
    Important: You must include a parameter for any Custom Field that is set as Mandatory in the Administration Center on the Calling Card tab.
    -skip_update Starts the Calling Card without checking for software updates.
    Note: This parameter affects only the checking for Calling Card software updates. The Calling Card will always check the Administration Center settings at startup.
