Application plugins extend the functionality of Cisco CallManager. For example, the Cisco CallManager Attendant Console plugin allows a receptionist to rapidly answer and transfer calls within an organization, and the JTAPI plugin allows a computer to host applications that access the Cisco CallManager via the Java Telephony Application Programming Interface (JTAPI).

For detailed information on the Cisco Customer Directory Configuration Plugin, refer to the latest online version of Installing and Configuring the Cisco Customer Directory Configuration Plugin.

Updating the Plugin URL

During the Cisco CallManager install process, records that are added to the Plugins table specify the URLs that the Administration applications use to build the Application drop-down menu. The basis for the URL that is constructed is the domain name server (DNS) at installation time. If the DNS changes, the URL does not get updated.

Perform the following procedure to update the DNS of the Plugin URL.


Step 1 Choose Application > Update Plugin URL.

The Update Plugin URL window displays.

Step 2 From the drop-down list box, choose the Plugin type.

Step 3 From the drop-down list box, choose the Plugin name.

Step 4 Enter the DNS name in the DNS field.
