  • Updated 4 months ago
We have multiple apps in developer account with below configuration and we need to associate each app with its own phone number so that when fax is sent using api, received fax has phone number associated with particular app only.  (Currently it sends phone number of main account and account name as sender of fax instead of app's name and number as sender)

App: private
Platform type: server/no ui

Hi,

You need to login from your app with one of your extension's (user) phone number. NOT the main account phone number.

Thanks. I login to https://developer.ringcentral.com using user number but User Account Credentials for the app still shows main account phone number.


Just to clarify, app is private app and not the public app.

Your developer account is for creating apps and change apps' configuration, as well as getting app key and secret etc.. You have to login to your sandbox account (https://service.devtest.ringcentral.com) to create users, assign phone number and provide others information to users.

/restapi/v1.0/account/{accountId}/extension/{extensionId}/fax

Please adjust the extensionId parameter.

What programming language are you using? Are you using a RingCentral SDK? I noticed that you asked similar question from another thread and I provided you with an answer about sending fax from a user's phone number. Check that out.
