This guide introduces how to install and activate the QueueMetrics Integration App and how to connect S-Series IPPBX to the QueueMetrics Live (cloud-based) and QueueMetrics On-Premise.
Step 1. Install and Activate the QueueMetrics Integration App
- Log in to the web user interface of S-Series VoIP PBX, go to App Center and install the QueueMetrics Integration App. ( note: make sure your firmware version is 184.108.40.206 or higher)
- Refresh the webpage, the integration App will be shown on the Main Menu.

Step 2. Prepare Your Queuemetrics Call Center
This step will explain how to prepare a Queuemetrics cloud-based or On-premises call center for S-Series VoIP PBX Integration.
- Cloud-based: If you need to host your contact center in the cloud, you need to have a QueueMetrics Live ID first. You can purchase the ID from the QueueMetrics official website. Or you can just create a demo (trail) ID right within the QueueMetrics Integration App of S-Series VoIP PBX. The demo ID is available for 30-days free trial.
- On-premises: If you need an on-premise call center, install QueueMetrics software on your server first, then edit the system parameters and users on the QueueMetrics to make it works with your PBX. Detailed configuration method can be found here.
Note: you can apply a trial license of QueueMetrics On-Premise from Yeastar to test the integration with Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX. Just contact us and we’ll get in touch to help!
Step 3. Integrate S-Series VoIP PBX with the QueueMetrics

Step 4. “Tell” QueueMetrics How Your Agent Works
We now have to tell QueueMetrics on which queues our agents will be working. Login to your QueueMetrics accounts and do the following settings.
1. Create Agents
Create a new agent on the QueueMetrics Home page and configure the Agent Detail according to the extension settings of your S-Series VoIP PBX. Set the Asterisk agent code, Agent description and Current terminal (agent’s extension number) and leave other parameters blank.
Asterisk agent code: The format is “Agent/xxxx” by default. For example, the agent’s extension number is 1000, the Asterisk agent code should be “Agent/1000”.
2. Create Queues
Create queues according to the queue settings on your S-Series PBX. Click Queues tab > Click Create New > Configure the Queue Detail. The format of Queue is “queue-xxx” by default. For example, if the queue number on the PBX is 6700, the Queue(s) should be queue-6700.
3. Create System Users
QueueMetrics provides Agent’s page for agents to log on, log off, pause, see processed calls and do other activities as well. In order to enable agent, you have to create a log-on for each agent that matches exactly the agent code you used in the agent definition. For example, for extension 5001 you would use Agent/5001.
Go to Home> Edit QueueMetrics settings > Administer users > Create New > Configure the User Detail. To check if your changes have been successful, try logging off the agent and logging in again.
