Go to the Edit organization page on your Admin Portal:
The Organization reference is the number that StarLeaf has assigned as your organization’s unique identifier.
The Organization prefix is your organization’s dialing prefix and has two purposes:
- StarLeaf uses the organization prefix to create an External video address for each user. If there are people outside your organization who have video endpoints made by 3rd-party manufacturers, they are able to dial a user’s External video address (visible on each user’s page in the Portal and also in StarLeaf app settings or through the touchscreen controller of a hardware endpoint)
- If your organization owns 3rd party H.323 endpoints and you want to register these with StarLeaf, the H.323 ID or name that you allocate to that endpoint uses the organization prefix in combination with your subdomain name and that endpoint’s directory number
Your organization’s account page is pre-populated with your organization details. When you have finished editing, click Apply at the bottom of the page.
- : The name of your company
- <subdomain>.call.sl to make and receive calls to and from third-party devices. For more information about video addresses, refer to StarLeaf video addresses : The name of your subdomain for external calls from H.323/SIP/Skype. StarLeaf assigns the customer
- example.com, starleaf.com. If any user sends a StarLeaf app invite to someone who appears (by the email address) to belong to your organization, that guest is automatically added to your account as a user. You can leave this field empty, however, StarLeaf recommends that email domains are entered where possible to avoid users from within your organization being allocated guest user accounts : Enter any corporate domains that you own and use to send emails. This is so that StarLeaf can recognize when a user invites, as a guest, someone who appears to be part of your organization. Include the whole domain name, for example:
- Request additional email domains: Opens a draft email to StarLeaf Support, to request any other email domains that you want to have as part of your organization. All organizations must go through an email verification process for additional domains to be added. When someone signs in to StarLeaf for the first time, with an email domain linked to your organization, they are automatically added as a user in your organization. For more information, see Create a user account
You can configure location-specific settings (such as default timezone, or default language) by clicking Site settings. You are redirected to the Sites page in your Admin Portal. For more information on Sites and location-specific settings, go to Sites.

- Email addresses for endpoint notifications: StarLeaf can send email notifications about the state of hardware endpoints that are registered with the StarLeaf platform. Enter the email addess(es) to which StarLeaf will send endpoint notifications. For each endpoint about which you require notifications, select Enable endpoint notifications (on the Edit user/Edit room system page)
- : You can enable PIN protection of your StarLeaf hardware endpoints. If you enable this, you are not able to change the configuration settings through the touchscreen controller unless you enter the correct PIN. This is an organization-wide setting and affects all StarLeaf endpoints in the organization
