Call Logs

Call logs allow users to see the history of the calls placed and received by Wazo.


The oldest call logs are periodically removed. See xivo-purge-db for more details.

Search Dashboard

Call logs can be accessed using the menu Services ‣ IPBX ‣ Call management ‣ Call Logs page.


Calls Records Dashboard

Specifying no start date returns all available call logs. Specifying a start date and no end date returns all call logs from start date until now.

Call logs are presented in a CSV format. Here’s an example:

Call Date,Caller,Called,Period,user Field
2015-01-02T00:00:00,Alice (1001),1002,2,userfield

The CSV format has the following specifications:

  • field names are listed on the first line
  • fields are separated by commas: ,
  • if there is a comma in a field value, the value is surrounded by double quotes: "
  • the UTF-8 character encoding is used


Call logs are also available from wazo-call-logd REST API.

Categorize call logs with custom tags

Sometimes, it’s useful to separate call logs according to a specific value (department, city, etc.). It’s possible with the User field of a user and the tags of a call log. Each User field will be copied into the tags for a call log and each User field must be separated by a comma.


Your company has employees in the accounting and sales departments. To list call logs from the sales department, you must set the User field of each user to sales. Now when a user tagged with sales places or receives a call, this call will be also tagged sales. You can now filter call logs by tags sales.

Manual generation

Call logs can also be generated manually. To do so, log on to the target Wazo server and run:


To avoid running for too long in one time, the call logs generation is limited to the N last unprocessed CEL entries (default 20,000). This means that successive calls to wazo-call-logs will process N more CELs, making about N/10 more calls available in call logs, going further back in history, while processing new calls as well.

You can specify the number of CEL entries to consider. For example, to generate calls using the 100,000 last unprocessed CEL entries:

wazo-call-logs -c 100000

Regeneration of call logs

Since call logs are based on CEL, they can be deleted and generated without problems. To regenerate the last month of call logs:

wazo-call-logs delete -d 30
wazo-call-logs generate -d 30  // the default behavior of wazo-call-logs command is `generate`


Call logs are pre-generated from CEL entries. The generation is done automatically by wazo-call-logd. wazo-call-logs is also run nightly to generate call logs from CEL that were missed by wazo-call-logd.
