This version contains a fix that changes some filesystem permissions/uvp app user.  After updating to this version there is a side effect that manually configured devices and devices adopted to layer 3 controllers (phones that do not have configurations by default to reach the controller ie. DHCP Option 43, Static mapping for unifi, etc) will lose UVP App configurations.


This is the next General Availability Release for UniFi VoIP (UVP) App/Platform.

  • On the UniFi VoIP Controller locate the phone in the devices tab and click the upgrade button next to the phone(s).(VoIP Controller -> Settings -> Controller -> Click the "Check" button to the right of "Update Image Cache")  (If using cache the Update button will not be immediately available as the Controller is downloading the update.)
