License Capabilities Assignment Configuration


Capabilities Assignment allows system administrators to enable the Cisco Unified Presence Server (CUPS) and Cisco Unified Personal Communicator (CUPC) capabilities for users. You must ensure that licenses for CUPS and CUPC are available.

Make license capabilities assignments to existing users. Before you begin, ensure that users exist on your system by choosing User Management > End User and clicking Find.

Before you begin configuring the capabilities assignments for users, determine how many CUPS (servers and clients) and CUPC licenses are required for your system by choosing Licensing > License Unit Calculator. Acquire the required licenses by using Licensing > License File Upload. Verify the total licenses by using Licensing > License Unit Report.
