Global Directory


Global Directory for the Cisco CallManager Release 3.0 contains every user within a Cisco CallManager directory. The Cisco CallManager directory is a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory that imports device and extension information from the database, and its primary purpose is to maintain the associations of devices with users. You can add users manually, or import them from an existing corporate LDAP directory.

You can access the Global Directory by using either of the following searches:

the search will be for (firstname='john' OR 'jane') AND lastname='jones' OR 'smith') AND (userid='jjones' OR 'jsmith').

Step 2 Click User > Global Directory.

Step 3 Click Advanced Search. The page refreshes to the Advanced User Search page.

Step 4 Enter the first name of the user for whom you are searching in the First Name field.

Step 5 Enter the user's last name in the Last Name field.

Step 7 Click Search. (Click the Clear button if you want to clear all fields and start over.)

The page refreshes to the specific user information you requested.



Note If you wish to refine a search after executing it, there is a link present on the returned list which allows you to change the search. When refining a search, three action buttons are present: Submit, Clear, and Reset. Reset populates the fields with the last search attempted. If you click on a name of a user listed as the result of a search, you are sent to the User Configuration page, from which you can go to the Associate Devices page. Users are listed in pages of 20. You can move to different pages of the results by clicking Next Page, Previous Page, or go directly to a particular page by clicking the page number.
