How it works
The contacts are read from the selected source and as an XML file from the Yealink phone encrypted as an "external telephone book" on a secure sync.blue® web server provided.
Here is an example URL for an external phone book from sync.blue®: https://directory.sync.blue/contacts/DEMOabcABC0123/yealink/v1
This URL is set once, either manually or automatically, in the Yealink phone deposited. From then on, the phone can look up this address book source for incoming calls or when displaying the phone book.
