From Zenitel Wiki

The Custom Scripts allows end users to make and upload their own web pages and php scripts. These scripts will typically implement 'Click to Call' applications.

The Custom Scripts page is protected by a 'Custom Script User' which can only access the Custom Scripts page. On the ICX and AlphaCom software as from version, only the Custom Scripts - Security subpage will be visible, also see Uploading scripts.

Default login:

User: scripter
Passwd: alphascript
Example: Custom Scripts

Uploading scripts

On ICX and on AlphaCom as from software version it is no longer possible to upload scripts via the Custom Scripts page. Scripts can only be uploaded by using software like WinSCP, connected via port 22 to the ICX or AlphaCom. Logging in using WinSCP with the scripter credentials will bring you directly to the directory to which the scripts can be uploaded. Remember to open port 22 in the filter page before attempting to upload. It is advisable to disable port 22 again once finished with the upload process.
On older software versions, use the Upload file field, as depicted above, to upload the custom scripts.

Test Scripts

This paragraph is not relevant for ICX and AlphaCom >=
A base script package is included by default. If you log on to the Custom Scripts menu in AlphaWeb, and do a select on the script, a description and list of all possible URI parameters will appear (this information is based on a header within the script). The script package includes the script call_handle.php which can be used to set up calls.

The script call_handle.php will have the following URI:


If enabled secure http transfer can be used_


You can also upload/download your own scripts, html documents and pictures for the documents if needed.
All script uploaded will be placed in the webfolder /cmd/.

AlphaScript Header

This has to be put in the script within a comment block. AlphaWeb will parse this header and present the information when the script is selected. AlphaWeb will also generate a input form with all possible URI parametrs to help test the script.

Alphaweb will parse the text between '<-AlphaScriptComment-' and '-AlphaScriptComment->'. The comment '*' will be removed by AlphaWeb.

AlphaScriptComment Tags:

  • --Description--
    All text until next is presented a general description of the script. Html syntax can be included
  • --URI_PARAM_N name=xx opt=xx input=xx
    All these will be put in input table form. name is the URI parameter name, opt tells if the field is required/optional, input is string describing the input value type.
  • --TEST_WINDOW width=nnn hight=nnn--
    A test link will be generated from the URI input values. The test window will be open in a new browser window with width and height from this tag.

AlphaScriptComment Example:

/* <-AlphaScriptComment- 
 *  --Description--

* From station 1001 in node 1 to station 1001 in node 2: * call_handle.php?from=(1)1001&to=(2)1001

Release M-key on 101:

Press C-key on 101:

Activate DAK key 4 on 101:

Activate group call 85 from station 101:

Security Configuration

In AlphaWeb, go to Custom Scripts > Security. Here you can configure access rights for running scripts.

You can define if a username/password is required in order to run scripts, you can add a list of valid hosts that have access to run scripts.

Default credentials:

Login: script
Passwd: script
Example: Scripts can only be run from a host with IP, and has to use script/ScriptZen as username/password

Choose ACCESS Rule:

  • Select allow to allow global access to the scripts
  • Select deny and add specific hosts; Scripts can now only be started if the command originates from a host in the list

When adding hosts that are allowed access, you can choose a define a complete subnet, or individual hosts. Example:

  • Enter 10.5.101, and all hosts on the 10.5.101.x subnet will have access
  • Enter, and only this host wil have access
