    Time(sec) before aborting if call is unanswered (min: 1, max: 600).

    ani_override_type string

    Possible values: [always, normal, emergency]

    Default value: always

    Specifies when we apply your ani_override setting. Only applies when ani_override is not blank.

    privacy_zone_enabled boolean

    By default, Telnyx does not send caller-id information when the caller has chosen to hide this information. When this option is enabled, Telnyx will send the SIP header Privacy:id plus the caller-id information so that the receiver side can choose when to hide it.

    Defines the list of codecs that Telnyx will send for inbound calls to a specific number on your portal account, in priority order. This only works when the Connection the number is assigned to uses Media Handling mode: default. OPUS and H.264 codecs are available only when using TCP or TLS transport for SIP.

    prack_enabled boolean

    Enable PRACK messages as defined in RFC3262.

    default_routing_method string

    Latency directs Telnyx to route media through the site with the lowest round-trip time to the user's connection. Telnyx calculates this time using ICMP ping messages. This can be disabled by specifying a site to handle all media.

    encrypted_media string

    Possible values: [SRTP, ZRTP]

    Enable use of SRTP or ZRTP for encryption. Valid values are those listed or null. Cannot be set to non-null if the transport_portocol is TLS.

    encode_contact_header_enabled boolean

    Possible values: [true, false]

    Encode the SIP contact header sent by Telnyx to avoid issues for NAT or ALG scenarios.

    inbound_generate_ringback_tone boolean

    Possible values: [true, false]

    Generate ringback tone through 183 session progress message with early media.

    outbound_generate_ringback_tone boolean

    Possible values: [true, false]

    Generate ringback tone through 183 session progress message with early media.

    rtcp_report_enabled boolean

    outbound_localization string

    A 2-character country code specifying the country whose national dialing rules should be used. For example, if set to US then any US number can be dialed without preprending +1 to the number. When left blank, Telnyx will try US and GB dialing rules, in that order, by default.

    inbound_channel_limit integer

    When set, this will limit the total number of inbound calls to phone numbers associated with this connection.

    outbound_channel_limit integer

    When set, this will limit the total number of outbound calls to phone numbers associated with this connection.

    onnet_t38_passthrough_enabled integer

    sip_uri_calling_preference string

    Possible values: [disabled, unrestricted, internal]

    Default value: disabled

    This feature enables inbound SIP URI calls to your Credential Auth Connection. If enabled for all (unrestricted) then anyone who calls the SIP URI will be connected to your Connection. You can also choose to allow only calls that are originated on any Connections under your account (internal).

    sip_subdomain string

    Specifies a subdomain that can be used to receive Inbound calls to a Connection, in the same way a phone number is used, from a SIP endpoint. Example: the subdomain "" can be called from any SIP endpoint by using the SIP URI "" where the user part can be any alphanumeric value. Please note TLS encrypted calls are not allowed for subdomain calls.

    sip_subdomain_receive_settings string

    Possible values: [only_my_connections, from_anyone]

    outbound_call_parking_enabled boolean

    Forces all SIP calls originated on this connection to be "parked" instead of "bridged" to the destination specified on the URI. Parked calls will return ringback to the caller and will await for a Call Control command to define which action will be taken next.

    webhook_api_version string

    Possible values: [1, 2]

    Default value: 1

    Determines which webhook format will be used, Telnyx API v1, v2, or a legacy 2010-04-01 format.
