Creating a SIP rule - Amazon Chime SDK

Creating a SIP rule

Before you can create a SIP rule, you need at least one private phone number or Request URI hostname and a SIP media application. For more about SIP applications, see Creating a SIP media application. Also, you can use rules created by other administrators.

To create a SIP rule

  1. Open the Amazon Chime SDK console at

  2. In the navigation pane, under Phone Numbers, choose SIP media applications.

  3. Choose the SIP application for which you want to create a rule, and then choose the Rules tab.

  4. Copy the phone number or Outbound host name value, paste the value into Notepad or a similar program, and keep that program open for later use.

  5. In the navigation pane, choose SIP rules.

    The SIP rules page appears.

  6. Choose Create.

    The Create a SIP rule dialog box appears.

  7. In the Name box, enter a name for the rule, then do one of the following:

    Create a rule for a phone number

    1. By default, the Trigger type list displays To phone number. If it doesn't, open the list and select that value.

    2. For Phone number, enter a phone number or choose one from the list. If you enter a number, use this format: +1ten-digit number. For example: +15095551212.

    Create a rule for a Request URI hostname

    1. Open the Trigger type list and choose Request URI hostname.

    2. Paste the hostname that you copied in step 2 into the Request URI hostname box.

  8. To use the rule immediately, leave the Enabled check box selected. To disable the rule—for example, until an Amazon Chime SDK Voice Connector and its hostname become available—clear the check box.

  9. Choose Next, and on the Step 2 page, open the SIP media application list and select the SIP media application that you want to use.

  10. As needed, choose Add a SIP media application to use the rule with multiple applications.

  11. Choose Create.

    A success message appears. If an error message appears, follow its instructions.
