For Cisco Unity Connection

See the Documentation Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/roadmap/10xcucdg.html.

New Functionality—Release 10.0(1)

This section contains information about new functionality in the 10.0(1) release time frame only.

Security Assertion Markup Language Single Sign-On (SAML SSO) Access in Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1)

Cisco Unity Connection 8.6(2) and later releases provides single sign-on (SSO) access to web applications to users using OpenAM based single sign-on. The SSO feature allows users to access the following web applications on Unity Connection:

Cisco Unity Connection Administration

Cisco Unity Connection Serviceability

Cisco Personal Communications Assistant

Web Inbox

Cisco Unity Connection Rest APIs

Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later releases introduces an enhanced single sign-on feature using open industry standard protocol SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). SAML SSO allows a user to gain single sign-on access with Unity Connection subscriber web interfaces and across the administrative web applications on the following Unified Communication products:

Cisco Unity Connection

Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Cisco Unified CM IM/Presence

For more information on access to web applications using SAML SSO, see Access to Web Applications.


Note Users cannot access Disaster Recovery System and Cisco Unified Operating System Administration using SAML SSO.


Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later supports both SAML single sign-on and OpenAM single sign-on but only one SSO feature can be enabled at a time.

SAML SSO uses Identity Provider (LDAP based) to provide single sign-on access to client applications. SAML SSO allows the LDAP users to login with a username and password that authenticates on Identity Provider. For more information on Identity Provider, see the "Overview of SAML SSO in Cisco Unity Connection" section of "Managing Security Assertion Markup Language Single Sign-On (SAML SSO) in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/administration/guide/10xcucsag112.html .


Note LDAP users are the users that are integrated to Active Directory. Non-LDAP users are the users that reside locally on the Unity Connection server.


The non-LDAP users with administrator rights login to Cisco Unity Connection Administration using Recovery URL. The Recovery URL option is present in Unity Connection product deployment selection window just below the Cisco Unity Connection option. When SSO login fails ( e.g. If Identity Provider or Active Directory is inactive), Recovery URL provides alternate access to the administrative and serviceability web applications.

For more information on the SAML SSO feature, see the "Understanding SAML protocol" section in Quick Start Guide for Cisco Unity Connection SAML SSO access- Release 10.0(1) and Later

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/quick_start/guide/10xcucqsgsamlsso.html


Note Unity Connection supports SAML 2.0 protocol for SAML SSO.


To enable the SAML SSO feature, make sure that all the pre-checks for enabling SAML SSO in Unity Connection are satisfied. For more information on enabling the SAML SSO feature in Unity Connection10.0(1) and later, see "Configuring SAML SSO" section of "Managing Secuirty Assertion Markup Language"chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/administration/guide/10xcucsag112.html.

A user signs in to any of the supported web applications on Unified Communication products (after enabling the SAML SSO feature) and also gains access to the following Unity Connection applications (apart from Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified CM IM/Presence):

Table 1 Access to Web Applications

Unity Connection users

Note To access Web Inbox and Mini Web Inbox, you must have a user with mailbox. Also navigate to Unity Connection Administration> Class of Service> Licensed features and make sure that the Allow Users to Use the Web Inbox, Messaging Inbox and RSS Feeds check box is checked.


For more information on accessing web application pages through SAML SSO, see the "Overview of SAML SSO in Cisco Unity Connection" section of "Managing Security Assertion Markup Language Single Sign-On (SAML SSO) in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/administration/guide/10xcucsag112.html.

HTTPS Networking in Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1)

Beginning with Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later, a new type of networking, HTTPS Networking, is introduced to connect different Unity Connection servers and clusters in a single site network. The main objective of introducing HTTPS networking is to increase the scalability of Unity Connection deployments. The architecture of HTTPS networking is scalable both in terms of number of Unity Connection locations and the total directory size.

You can join two or more Unity Connection servers or clusters to form a well-connected network, which is referred to as an HTTPS Unity Connection network. The servers that are joined to the network are referred to as locations. In case of a Unity Connection cluster, the cluster counts as one location in the network. Within a network, each location uses HTTPS protocol to exchange directory information and SMTP protocol to exchange voice messages with each other.

The locations in an HTTPS network are linked together through an HTTPSlink. The topology used in HTTPS networking is hub and spoke topology that plays an important role in increasing scalability of directory size and number of Unity Connection locations. In hub-spoke topology, there are two types of locations: hub location and spoke location. The Unity Connection location which has more than one HTTPS links is known as hub location and the Unity Connection location which has only one HTTPS link is known as spoke location.

For more information on HTTPS networking, refer to the HTTPS Networking Guide for Cisco Unity Connection 10.x and later guide.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/https_networking/guide/10xcuchttpsnetx.html

Cisco Unity Connection support for Video Greetings

Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later releases have enhanced the current greeting experience by providing the video greetings to the caller. Unity Connection facilitates the user to record and play video greetings for the identified callers using a video endpoint. For the outside callers, Unity Connection only plays the video greetings depending on the class of service configuration. You can record and play six types of personal video greetings, however, error greetings are played audio only.


Note Unity Connection 10.0(1) supports:

99xx, 89xx, 79xx, and 69xx series of video endpoints.

Video greetings over SIP Integration with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Video greetings are not supported over SCCP integration.

To access the video greetings feature, the administrator needs to create video service account for a user and configure it with the video services. Video services allow Unity Connection to integrate with video server for the storage and retrieval of video greetings recorded by the user. For more information on configuring video service account with video services, see the "Configuring Video Services and Video Services Accounts in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" section of "Managing Video Greetings in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/administration/guide/10xcucsag091.html.


Note We recommend that you do not enable the video greetings feature if Unity Connection is configured in IPv6 mode as video greetings are not supported in the IPv6 and dual (IPv4/IPv6) modes.


When a call comes, Unity Connection applies all the pre-checks required to establish a video call. A user will be able to record and play video greetings, if all the pre-checks required for each video call are satisfied. For more information on pre-checks, see the "Pre-checks Required for Video Greetings" section of "Managing Video Greetings in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/administration/guide/10xcucsag091.html.

After configuring video greeting settings in Unity Connection, a user will be able to successfully record and play video greetings. Consider the following scenarios, when Unity Connection allows:

Users login via direct sign-in using the telephone user interface (touchtone conversation) to record and play video greetings, which is supported by the setup options and self-enrollment.

Called users to play video greetings, when the calling user receives unanswered call ("ring-no-answer") from the called user.

For more information on recording video greeting using telephone user interface, see the "Recording Your Video Greeting" section in "Managing Personal Greetings" chapter of User Guide for the Cisco Unity Connection Phone Interface at

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/user/guide/phone/b_10xcucugphone_chapter_01000.html#task_3AAF5611CF9843C49D46707B7C6D6407.

Tenant Partitioning in Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1)

Tenant partitioned Cisco Unity Connection can be thought of as a cloud based voice mail solution where service providers can provide voice mail service to multiple small medium businesses (SMBs )on single installation of Cisco Unity Connection.A Tenant is a logical grouping of objects within the Unity Connection appliance that together make an independent tenant (customer) hosted on the server. Unity Connection will let you have more than one tenant on a single installation. These tenants will exist as islands within the server and would have no knowledge of each other.

Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later provides a Tenant Partitioning system within its database, which allows the hosting of voicemail solution for more than one small medium businesses (SMBs)on a single Unity Connection serve.The Tenant Partitioning solution provides voicemail solution for up to 60 tenants, each with a maximum of 100 users on the Unity Connection 7vCPU OVA. For more information on the specifications for virtual platform overlays, see the Platform Overlays for Cisco Unity Connection 10.x section of the Cisco Unity Connection 10.x Supported Platforms List at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/supported_platforms/10xcucspl.html.

There are no changes done in the installation procedure for Unity Connection. For more information on how to install Unity Connection, see the Installation Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/installation/guide/10xcucigx.html.


Note Tenant Partitioning is only supported on a fresh installation.


Tenant partitioning ensures privacy and security of tenants' data; tenants and their information are hidden from each other. Each tenant can have it's own domain name, routing rules, search space, partitions, schedules, call handlers, directory handlers, interview handlers, and authentication rules.

The administrator is common to all tenants hosted on a single server. He or she can use the REST APIs that provides (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) CRUD access to perform different operations. The Tenant, Licensing Dump, and Licensing User Entitlement REST APIs have been introduced with this release specifically for the Tenant Partitioning system. For more information on other new APIs that have been introduced with Unity Connection 10.0(1) release, refer to the Changed Functionality—Release 10.0(1) section of this document.

Support for Playing Message Status on Reply and Reply-All in Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1)

Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later releases play the status of the message to users when they reply or reply-all to a message using TUI and VUI Interface. Unity Connection plays the following message Changing Conversation Settings for All Users in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x status, when the Announce Message Status to User(s) while Replying check box is checked:

Urgent

Private

Private and Secure

To enable the Announce Message Status to User(s) while Replying option in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, navigate to System Settings > Advanced > Conversations.

Support for Playing Recipient List on Reply-All when Number of Recipients are Below Maximum in Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1)

With Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later, when the user reply-all to a message, Unity Connection plays the recipient list, if the number of recipients is less than the number specified in the Maximum Number of Recipients Before Reply-all Warning field. To play the recipient list when you reply-all to a message, check the Announce Recipients list to User(s) while Replying check box. For more information on the Maximum Number of Recipients Before Reply-all Warning field, see the System Administration Guide.

To enable the Announce Recipients list to User(s) while Replying option in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, navigate to System Settings > Advanced > Conversations.

For more information on announcing message status on reply and reply-all, see the Announcing Recipient List on Reply or Reply-All in Cisco Unity Connection section of the Changing Conversation Settings for All Users in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection for 10.x.

Support for Mailbox-Size Quota Notification Mail

Cisco Unity Connection allows you to specify the maximum size or quota for the mailbox of every user in a Unity Connection system. In Unity Connection 9.1(1) and earlier releases, when a user exceeds the maximum assigned quota, the user recieves a prompt for the mailbox quota overflow.

Beginning with Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later releases, when the mailbox size of a user starts reaching its specified threshold limit on Unity Connection, the user will receive a quota notification message.

A quota notification message is an email that is sent automatically by Unity Connection to the corporate email address of the voice mailbox when the voice mailbox size of the user exceeds its threshold limit. You can use Cisco Unity Connection Administration to view the default quota notification message or to create, view, and modify customized quota notification messages.

For more information on Mailbox-Size Quotas, see the "Mailbox-Size Quotas in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" section of "Setting Up Features and Functionality That Are Controlled by User Account Settings in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" chapter of User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/user_mac/guide/10xcucmacx.html

Cisco Unity Connection Telephone User Interface (Touchtone Conversation) PIN

Cisco Unity Connection 9.1(1) and earlier releases allow you to set the expiration warning days of a password or PINs and the number of days after which your credentials will expire. Unity Connection plays a warning prompt for the expiry of the PINs on each login when the number of days is less than or equal to the number of days specified in the Expiration Warning Days field and greater than zero.

In Cisco Unity Connection 10.0(1) and later, the administrator has the privilege to set the time interval during which the conditional expiry warning prompt (after which your credentials will expire) will be played. Run the command utils cuc set PinExpiry_PromptTime "Authentication Rule Name" in the Command Line Interface (CLI) to update the time interval and the warning flag. For more information, see Utils cuc section of Utils Command chapter in the Command Line Interface Reference Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Solutions, Release 10.0(1) at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/cli_ref/10_0_1/CUCM_BK_C6AE17AA_00_cucm-cli-reference-guide-101.html.

If the administrator entered the value as 0 (disable), and then the expiry warning prompt will be played (default behavior) every day to the user on each login till the number of days specified in the Expiration Warning Days field.

If the administrator entered the value as 1 (enable), then he or she will be asked to enter the time interval during which the conditional expiry warning prompt will be played. If the administrator does not enter any time interval, the warning prompt will be played to the user on every 30th, 15th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, and 1st day.


Note If the administrator entered a value other than 0 or 1, Cisco Unity Connection will prompt it as Invalid Response.


For more information on conditional expiry warning prompt, see the "Specifying Password, PIN, Sign-In, and Lockout Policies by Using Authentication Rules (Cisco Unity Connection only)" section of "Specifying Password, PIN, Sign-In, and Lockout Policies in Cisco Unity Connection 10.x" chapter in System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.x http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/10x/administration/guide/10xcucsagx.html.

Voice Message as an attachment in HTML Notification

The administrator can configure Unity Connection to send the voice message as an attachment in the HTML notification to the user.The size of the voice message attachment can also be configured. For more information on how to configure, see the Configuring Cisco Unity Connection for HTML-based Message Notification section of the "Configuring an Email Account to Access Cisco Unity Connection Voice Messages" chapter of the User Workstation Setup Guide for Cisco Unity Connection available at

Media Master Cannot Open WAV Files Saved on a Workstation in G.729a Format

The Media Master cannot open WAV files prerecorded in the G.729a audio format and saved to a workstation.

This limitation has the following workarounds:

Convert the WAV file to another audio format (for example, convert it to the G.711 audio format).

Use a WAV file that is recorded in a supported audio format other than G.729a.

Make the recording by using a phone or a computer microphone.

Note that when Cisco Unity Connection is configured to record in the G.729a audio format, the Media Master functions correctly for recording and playing by using a phone or a computer microphone.

Secure Messaging Limitations Regarding ViewMail

Adding non-audio attachments to secure messages composed in Cisco ViewMail for Microsoft Outlook version 8.5 is not supported at this time.
