Field Maximum Length Description

Company Name

100

Specify the name of your company or organization. The value you enter in this field appears in reports and logs.

Report Server IP Address

50

If you are using a Vocera Report Server, specify its IP address. For security reasons, you must register the address of the Report Server with the Vocera Voice Server in this manner, or the Vocera Voice Server prevents the Report Server from downloading data.

You must also enter the IP address of the Vocera Voice Server in the Report Console.

VAI Application IP Addresses (comma-separated list)

80

Optionally enter a comma-separated list of IP addresses to limit the list of computers which are allowed to establish VAI connections to the Vocera Voice Server. If you leave this field blank, a VAI application from any machine is allowed to connect to the Vocera Voice Server; however, applications still need to authenticate to access data on the Vocera Voice Server.

A VAI application that is deployed directly on any node of a Vocera Voice Server cluster is automatically authorized to connect; you do not have to add it explicitly to the VAI Application IP Addresses field.

Note: For Vocera Messaging Platform Integration, make sure your Vocera Messaging Platform server IP address(es) are in the VAI Application IP Addresses field. Enter the Vocera Messaging Platform server IP address first, before all other IP addresses that are running VAI applications.
