Section overview

Data Source section is a first step to providing easier and more convenient work with data sources: files import, in particular. Previously, data source settings were split between Rate TablesResellers, Gatewaysand Number Portability and caused certain inconvenience in its configuration. Now, all these settings have been united in a single section making it possible to configure a data source in one place and use it throughout the entire system. The section is presented in the form of a table with the following columns:
