Asterisk sip username

SIP config username

The username config option has dual use:

  • When Asterisk registers with another SIP proxy, the username is used in digest authentication

  • When asterisk boots, we have no information on a dynamic peer, a peer that registers. In order to be able to place a call to the phone, Asterisk sends an INVITE to username@defaultip .

Note: In most cases, there is no need to set the username= option. The name of the device is the name within the square brackets above the configuration section.

Note: This option is deprecated on Asterisk 1.6 which uses "defaultuser"
