Common Device Configuration


A common device configuration comprises user-specific service and feature attributes. Ensure that each device is associated with a common device configuration for user-oriented information.


Note The Device Pool window now contains only location-related information. The Common Device Configuration window records all the user-oriented information.


Use the following topics to configure common device configurations:

Finding a Common Device Configuration

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


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


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Device > Device Settings > Common Device Configuration.

The Find and List Common Device Configurations window displays. Records from an active (prior) query may also display in the window.

Step 2 To find all records in the database, ensure the dialog box is empty; go to Step 3.

To filter or search records

From the drop-down list box, select a search pattern.

Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.


Note To add additional search criteria, click the + button. When you add criteria, the system searches for a record that matches all criteria that you specify. To remove criteria, click the - button to remove the last added criterion or click the Clear Filter button to remove all added search criteria.


Step 3 Click Find.

All 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.


Note You can delete multiple records from the database by checking the check boxes next to the appropriate record and clicking Delete Selected. You can delete all configurable records for this selection by clicking Select All and then clicking Delete Selected.


Step 4 From the list of records that display, click the link for the record that you want to view.


Note To reverse the sort order, click the up or down arrow, if available, in the list header.


The window displays the item that you choose.

Configuring a Common Device Configuration

To add a common device configuration for a device, use the following procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Device > Device Settings > Common Device Configuration.

The Find and List Common Device Configurations window displays.

Step 2 Perform one of the followings tasks:

To add a new common device configuration, click the Add New button and continue with Step 3.

To update an existing common device configuration, locate the appropriate common device configuration as described in "Finding a Common Device Configuration" section and continue with Step 3.

Step 3 Enter the appropriate settings as described in Table 93-1.

Step 4 Click Save.


Additional Information

See the "Deleting a Common Device Configuration" section.

Common Device Configuration Settings

Table 93-1 describes the common device configuration settings. For related procedures, see the "Deleting a Common Device Configuration" section.

Table 93-1 Common Device Configuration Settings 

Field
Description
Common Device Configuration Information

Name

Enter a name to identify the common device configuration.

Softkey Template

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

User Hold MOH Audio Source

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

Network Hold MOH Audio Source

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

User Locale

From the drop-down list box, choose the locale for the common device configuration. 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 Communications Manager clusterwide parameters as Default User Locale applies.

Multilevel Precedence and Preemption Information

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

From the drop-down list box, choose an MLPP domain that is associated with this common device configuration. If you leave the <None> setting, devices inherit MLPP domains from the value set for the MLPP Domain Identifier enterprise parameter.


Deleting a Common Device Configuration

To delete a common device configuration, use the following procedure.

Before You Begin

You cannot delete a common device configuration that a device uses. To find out which devices are using the common device configuration, click the Dependency Records link from the Common Device 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-2. If you try to delete a common device configuration that is in use, Cisco Unified Communications Manager displays a message. Before deleting a common device configuration that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following tasks:

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

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

Procedure


Step 1 To locate the common device configuration that you want to delete, follow the procedure in "Finding a Common Device Configuration" section.

Step 2 Check the check box next to the common device configurations that you want to delete. To select all the common device configurations 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.
