We are testing the v5.5.0 in our development lab (purely to test it out) but we are running into an odd problem: We cannot get PIN authentication for Common Area Phones to work. We have tried utlizing the reg.1.auth.loginCredentialType=extensionAndPIN as well as the reg.1.auth.usePinCredentials=1 in our shared configuration file and neither of those enable the PIN authentication feature.
Has that feature been left out intentionally since 5.5.0 was developed mainly for Skype for Business cloud-hosted PBX that does not support common area phones? Is there a way to enable PIN authentication in our development lab to with our common area phones?
Again, I know the official stance of this is not support which is why we have it in our development lab to just learn all the gotchas and features...
