Finding a Device Profile

This topic describes how to use the Find and List Device Profile window. The Find and List lookup function allows you to search for user and autogenerated device profiles or both types. The function searches every type of device profile against the following categories:

Device name

Device description

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Device > Device Profile.

The Find and List Device Profile window displays.

Step 2 From the drop- down lists, choose your search text for the type of device profiles you want listed and click Find.


Note To find all device profiles registered in the database, choose All Device Profiles from the drop-down list without entering any search text and click Find. You can also use "Device Name is not empty" as your search criteria.


The window refreshes and then displays the device profiles that match your search criteria.

To jump to an autogenerated device profile or user device profile:

Step 3 Choose the device profile from the list of records that match your search criteria.

To delete device profiles:

Step 4 Use the check box in the first column to delete multiple device profiles at once. Check the first check box in the list and click Delete Selected. You can also choose individual user device profiles to delete them separately.


Note You cannot delete autogenerated device profiles. User device profiles cannot be deleted if they are being used as a logout profile by phones.

Adding a New User Device Profile

This topic describes how to add a new user device profile. The user device profile contains attributes such as device profile name, description, phone template, expansion modules, directory numbers, subscribed services, and speed-dial information. Refer to "Understanding Extension Mobility and Phone Logins" in the Cisco CallManager System Guide for more detailed information.

Before You Begin

Make sure phone button template(s) are already configured before proceeding with the steps. See the "Adding Phone Button Templates" section on page 49-2 for more information.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Device > Device Profile.

The Find and List Device Profile window refreshes.

Step 2 In the upper, right corner, choose the Add a New User Device Profile link.

The User Device Profile Configuration window displays.

Step 3 Enter a unique name in the User Device Profile Name field. This name can comprise up to 50 characters in length.

Step 4 Enter a description of the user device profile in the Description field. For text, use anything that describes this particular user device profile.

Step 5 To specify the audio source played when a user initiates a hold action, click the the drop-down arrow to the right of the User Hold Audio Source field and choose an audio source from the list that displays.

If you do not choose an audio source, Cisco CallManager uses the audio source defined in the device pool or the system default if the device pool does not specify an audio source ID.


Note You define audio sources in the Music On Hold Audio Source Configuration window. For access, choose Service > Media Resource > Music On Hold Audio Source.


Step 6 From the Phone Button Template drop-down list, choose a phone button template.

Step 7 You can configure one or two expansion modules for this device profile by choosing phone buttons from the expansion module drop-down lists in the expansion module fields.


Note You can view a phone button list at any time by choosing the View button list link next to the phone button template fields. A separate dialog box pops up, displaying the phone buttons for that particular expansion module.


Step 8 Enter a valid login user ID in the Login User ID field.


Note If the user device profile is used as a logout profile, specify the login user ID that will be associated with the phone. After the user logs out from this user device profile, the phone will automatically log in to this login user ID.



Note You can obtain help in finding a valid login user ID by choosing the Select Login User ID link below the Login User ID field. A separate dialog box pops up. In the Login User ID field, enter the first few characters of the login user ID that you want to use, and all login user IDs that match the pattern that you entered will display in the Selected login user ID field. Choose the desired ID and click OK.


Step 9 Click Insert.

Step 10 A dialog box appears asking you to configure a directory number for line 1 of this user device profile. Click OK.

The Directory Number Configuration window displays. For information on configuring directory numbers, see "Configuring Directory Numbers" section on page 48-29.

Step 11 Enter the appropriate settings as described in "Directory Number Configuration Settings" section on page 48-34.

Step 12 Click Insert.

A dialog box notifies you that you have updated the user device profile. The dialog box informs you that you need to log out and log in again to the device with this profile for changes to take effect. Click OK.

A second dialog box informs you that the directory number has been assigned to the current device. Click OK to return to the current user device profile.
