The CDR (Call Detail Record) Export system is your key way to understand the calling activity your account generates over time. CDRs can display both successful and/or unsuccessful calls. It provides you with metrics for those calls such as time, date, source IP, country, costs, and many other data points.
There are two CDR modes available in Manage Portal:
- CDR Export (up to 3 months of data)
- CDR Quick View (last 24 hours)
This CDR data can be requested in 3-month segments (92 days). We continue to store and keep 100% of any detailed call data you have accrued while using Flowroute services. If you needed a year of data - you would need 4 exports for those 3-month segments. You can access the CDR Export tool in the Manage Portal.
There is a filter with the required criteria and some optional filters to further refine the requested export.
START CALL WINDOW START/END - The Call Detail Record (CDR) Search tool creates an export file of CDRs that can be filtered by when a call started. Define a window to search for when a call started by entering a window start time and a window end time. Depending on other filters specified at the same time, this will return all records for calls that started within this window.
Tollfree Only - if selected, only calls to and from Toll-Free numbers are included
Exclude Cancelled - if selected, it will not include calls that were attempted but then canceled
E911 Charges Only - if selected, it will only show charges associated with unassigned E911 emergency dial attempts
Exclude Failed - if selected, it includes calls that were attempted and reached Flowroute but did not cross the network due to a PBX error
+ Add Number Alias - Define the preassigned Number Alias (applied on the DID Management page)
+ Add Destination Numbers - The destination number that was attempted and/or connected
+ Add Custom Tags - Used to filter the records with "X-Tag" references in the SIP header against the list provided.
+ Add Caller IP - Outbound (Origination) IP or Inbound (Destination) PBX IP
+ Add Duration - Call duration
+ Add Cost - Cost of a call
+ Add Filter By Countries - Specifically defines countries to include in the report
+ Add Exclude By Countries - Specifically defines countries to exclude from the export
+ Add Direction - Inbound or Outbound
+ Add Destination Prefix - The destination's dialed digits outside the NPA-NXX of the DID
+ Add Callerid Prefix - The outbound Caller ID digits outside the NPA-NXX of the DID
Compress results to GZIP? - The normal CSV format will be compressed to GZIP
Once you adjusted all desired filters and defined the timeframe simply click on "CDR Export" to generate a report for the selected criteria.
Exported reports are processed and become downloadable on the same page.
CDR Quick View
The CDR Quick View tool provides an instant detailed capture of the last 24 hours of your CDRs. This view does not include CNAM lookup fees and it should not be used for billing purposes. Refer to the CDR Exports page for financial details.
