Because you may have several common profiles in your network, Cisco Unified CallManager lets you locate specific common profiles on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate common profiles.


Note During your work in a browser session, Cisco Unified CallManager Administration retains your common profile search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, Cisco Unified CallManager Administration retains your common profile search preferences until you modify your search or close the browser.

To delete a common profile, use the following procedure.

Before You Begin

You cannot delete a common profile that a device uses. To find out which devices are using the common profile, click the Dependency Records link from the Common Profile Configuration window. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency records summary window displays a message. For more information about dependency records, see the "Accessing Dependency Records" section on page A-3. If you try to delete a common profile that is in use, Cisco Unified CallManager displays a message. Before deleting a common profile that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following tasks:

Assign a different common profile to any devices that are using the common profile that you want to delete.

Delete the devices that are using the common profile that you want to delete.

Procedure


Step 1 To locate the common profile that you want to delete, follow the procedure in "Finding a Common Profile" section.

Step 2 Check the check box next to the common profiles that you want to delete. To select all the common profiles in the window, check the check box in the matching records title bar.

Step 3 Click Delete Selected.

Step 4 To confirm your selection, click OK.

Table 61-1 Common Profile Configuration Settings 

Field
Description

Common Profile Name

Enter a name to identify the common profile.

Softkey Template

From the drop-down list box, choose the softkey template for the common profile.

Network Hold MOH Audio Source

Choose the audio source to use for music on hold (MOH) when the network initiates a hold action.

User Hold MOH Audio Source

Choose the audio source to use for MOH when a user initiates a hold action.

User Locale

From the drop-down list box, choose the locale for the common profile. The user locale identifies a set of detailed information to support users, including language and font.

Note If the user does not choose a user locale, the locale that is specified in the Cisco Unified CallManager cluster-wide parameters as Default User Locale applies.

MLPP Indication

This setting specifies whether devices that are capable of playing precedence tones will use the capability when the devices place an MLPP precedence call.

From the drop-down list box, choose a setting to assign to the devices from the following options:

Default—Devices inherit MLPP Indication settings from the MLPP Indication Status enterprise parameter.

Off—Devices do not handle nor process indication of an MLPP precedence call.

On—Devices do handle and process indication of an MLPP precedence call.

Note Do not configure the following combination of settings: MLPP Indication is set to Off or Default (when default is Off) while MLPP Preemption is set to Forceful.

Note Turning on MLPP Indication (at the enterprise parameter or device level) disables normal Ring Setting behavior for the lines on a device, unless MLPP Indication is turned off (overridden) for the device.

MLPP Preemption

This setting specifies whether devices that are capable of preempting calls in progress will use the capability when the devices place an MLPP precedence call.

From the drop-down list box, choose a setting to assign to the devices from the following options:

Default—Devices inherit MLPP Preemption settings from the MLPP Preemption Setting enterprise parameter.

Disabled—Devices do not allow preemption of lower precedence calls to take place when necessary for completion of higher precedence calls.

Forceful—Devices allow preemption of lower precedence calls to take place when necessary for completion of higher precedence calls.

Note Do not configure the following combination of settings: MLPP Indication is set to Off or Default (when default is Off) while MLPP Preemption is set to Forceful.

MLPP Domain

Enter a hexadecimal value between 0 and FFFFFF for the MLPP domain that is associated with this common profile. If you leave this field blank, devices inherit MLPP domains from the value set for the MLPP Domain Identifier enterprise parameter.
