Using the Cisco Unity Connection Bulk Administration Tool


The Cisco Unity Connection Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) allows you to create, update, and delete multiple user accounts or system contacts by importing information contained in a comma separated value (CSV) file. In addition, it allows you to export information about users or system contacts from Cisco Unity Connection to a CSV file. When Cisco Unity Connection is running as part of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition (CMBE), you cannot create, update, or delete users with BAT. Modifications to users must be done in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

CSV is a common text file format for moving data from one data store to another. For example, importing from a CSV file can be useful for transferring information from a corporate directory to Cisco Unity Connection. Transferring the information allows users with voice mailboxes to add corporate directory users who are not Connection users to their address books and to then create call-routing rules based on calls from such contacts.

See the following sections for detailed information and instructions on using BAT:

BAT allows you to create Cisco Unity Connection user accounts (with or without voice mailboxes) from a CSV file. See the "Constructing the Input CSV Files" section as you create the CSV file.


Note Before you use BAT to add voice mail users to the system, confirm that the required Connection licenses are available for the new user accounts. You can view the number of licenses purchased, and the number that are used and unused on your system, from Cisco Unity Connection Administration. If you need additional licenses, contact your reseller.

Constructing the Input CSV Files

BAT supports only UTF-8 and UTF-16 character set encoding for the text in the CSV file.

To quickly construct an input CSV file, you can use BAT to export the applicable type of user or contact, and use the resulting output CSV file as a template.

The following example shows a CSV file for creating voice mail users. To construct the file, voice mail users were exported to a CSV file. Then, unwanted columns and data were removed from the file. Finally, the TemplateAlias column and the applicable data were added. (Note that the data for DisplayName—an optional field—is missing for several users.)

Example CVS Input File for Creating Voice Mail Users

Alias,DisplayName,FirstName,LastName,TemplateAlias,Extension,ListInDirectory
iwinkler,"Winkler, Ian",Ian,Winkler,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5321,1
jsmith,,John,Smith,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5126,1
cjones,"Jones, Cris",Cris,Jones,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5249,1
dalbert,,Dan,Albert,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5299,1
jlee,"Lee, Jane",Jane,Lee,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5324,1

swong,"Wong, Sara",Sara,Wong,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5260,1

cashmore,,Carol,Ashmore,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5403,1
lcarson,"Carson, Lauren",Lauren,Carson,VoiceMailUserTemplate,5999,1

Whether you modify an output CSV file or create a CSV file from scratch, use the following guidelines, along with the tables in the "Required and Optional CSV Fields" section to construct a valid input CSV file for use with the BAT:

The first row in your CSV file must contain column headings that identify the type of data in each column; information in the subsequent rows must contain the data that you want to import.

Ensure that commas separate the data in each row in your CSV file, including the column headings in the first row. Do not use a tab, spaces, or a semicolon to separate values in the file.

Although the data must be arranged in the same order as the column heading, the order in which you arrange the columns is unimportant.

If the CSV file includes a column that you want BAT to ignore, use the column heading "Junk."

If any data includes a space, quotes, or commas, contain it within quotes.

We recommend that your data not include double-quotes because it can cause problems with interactions with external servers. If the data does include double-quotes, place an additional double-quote next to each double-quote. For example, if the data is My "Spare Phone", the entry must be My ""Spare Phone"".

Column headings are not case sensitive, but they must be spelled as indicated in the tables in the "Required and Optional CSV Fields" section. Columns that are designated not applicable (N/A) for an operation are ignored.

(Standalone Configurations Only) For creating user accounts, most optional fields that are listed in the CSV field tables correspond to settings defined in a user template. For example, for voice mail users, the default template includes class of service (COS), call transfer, and message notification settings. When data for a particular user setting is not included in the CSV file, BAT uses settings in the user template that you specify in the required field TemplateAlias. For this reason, you should review the settings in the user template that you use to create the accounts before adding any of the optional column headers to your CSV file. If a value for an optional field is not included in the CSV file, and if the template does not specify a default value, then the value for the field is not set.

To explicitly set the value of a field to empty (or to null, if allowed), use the expression %null% for the value in the CSV file.

We recommend that you do not include more than 5,000 records in an input CSV file.

Correcting Errors by Using the Failed Objects File

When you run BAT, it copies each record that it cannot process to a failed objects report file, along with the reason that the record was not processed correctly. For example, in the following CSV file, the first record includes an invalid entry for the Country field, and the second record specifies a template that is not a voice mail user template:

Alias, City, PostalCode, State, Country, TemplateAlias
Jsmith, Beverly Hills, 90210, Ca., United States, VoiceMailUserTemplate
BRobertson, Seattle, 98121, WA, US, AdminUserTemplate

Using this file to create users with voice mailboxes produces the following failed objects file:

FailureReason, alias, city, postalcode, state, country, templatealias
United States is invalid for column Country|, Jsmith, Beverly Hills, 90210, Ca., United States, VoiceMailUserTemplate
Object not found or is not a template: Parameter = [@TemplateObjectId], Table = [vw_SubscriberTemplate], Column = [Alias,ObjectId]|, BRobertson, Seattle, 98121, WA, US, AdminUserTemplate

The FailureReason column—which provides information about the invalid data—is added before the first column.

To correct errors, do the following procedure to modify the failed objects file, rename it, and use it as the input file when you re-run BAT.

Note that depending on the type of problem with the data in the CSV file, for each problem record, BAT may report multiple errors or only the first error encountered. Therefore, after you correct errors, BAT may detect additional errors in the same record when the data is processed again. Thus, you may need to repeat the correction process—running the tool and correcting an error—several times to find and correct all errors.

To Correct Errors by Using the Failed Objects File


Step 1 If the Bulk Administration Tool operation results in any failures, you can immediately inspect the failed objects report file by clicking Download the Failed Objects File.

Step 2 Open the file and correct all problems with the data, as indicated by the information in the FailureReason column for each record.

Step 3 Remove the FailureReason column or change the heading to "junk."

Step 4 When you have finished modifying the data, save the file as a CSV file with a new name.

Step 5 Run BAT again with the CSV file that you saved in Step 4 as the input file.

Note that each time that you run BAT, the failed objects file is overwritten (unless you specify a new name for the file each time you run the tool).

Step 6 Repeat this procedure until all records are processed without error.



Note If you have navigated away from the Bulk Administration Tool page, you can go back and click the Display Last Operation button to bring up a download link for the output file from the previous operation. If you need a failed objects file from more than one previous operation, you can use the Command Line Interface (CLI) command "file view activelog cuc/<filename>" to view failed object files. For more information on using CLI commands, see the applicable Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection. The guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html.
