License Capabilities Assignment Configuration


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

Use the following topics to add or update a license capabilities assignment:

Finding a License Capabilities Assignment

Because you might have several license capabilities assignments for users in your network, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration lets you locate specific capabilities assignments on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to find locations.


Note During your work in a browser session, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your location search preferences.

All or matching records display. You can change the number of items that display on each page by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.
