Transformation Pattern Configuration


The parameters in the Transformation Patterns window are used to provide appropriate caller information using the Calling Party Transformation calling search space on the destination device. Calls through transformation patterns are not routable. When this pattern is matched, the call does not route to any device.

Use the following topics to find, add, update, copy, or delete a transformation pattern:

Finding a Transformation Pattern

Because you might have several transformation patterns in your network, Cisco Unified Communications Manager lets you locate specific transformation patterns by using specific criteria as the basis. Use the following procedure to locate transformation pattern.


Note During your work in a browser session, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your transformation pattern search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your transformation pattern search preferences until you modify your search.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Call Routing > Transformation Pattern.

The Find and List Calling Party Transformation Patterns window displays.

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 first drop-down list box, select a search parameter.

From the second 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 criteria or click the Clear Filter button to remove all added search criteria.


Step 3 Click Find.

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.


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 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.

Transformation Pattern Configuration Settings

Table 61-1 describes the calling party transformation pattern configuration settings.

Table 61-1 Transformation Pattern Configuration Settings 

Field
Description
Pattern Definition

Pattern

Enter the transformation pattern, including numbers and wildcards (do not use spaces); for example, for NANP, enter 9.@ for typical local access, or 8XXX for a typical private network numbering plan. The uppercase characters A, B, C, and D are valid characters.

Note Ensure that the pattern is unique. Check the transformation pattern, route pattern, translation pattern, directory number, call park number, call pickup number, message waiting on/off, or meet me number if you receive an error that indicates duplicate entries. You can also check the route plan report.

See the "Wildcards and Special Characters in Route Patterns and Hunt Pilots" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide for more information about wildcards.

Partition

If you want to use a partition to restrict access to the transformation pattern, choose the desired partition from the drop-down list box. If you do not want to restrict access to the transformation pattern, choose <None> for the partition. See the "Partition Configuration" section on page 45-1 for more information on how to use partitions.

You can configure the number of partitions that display in this drop-down list box by using the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter. If more partitions exist than the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter specifies, the Find button displays next to the drop-down list box. Click the Find button to display the Find and List Partitions window. Find and choose a partition name by using the Finding a Partition procedure in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.

Note Transformation patterns should be configured in different non- NULL partitions than dialing patterns such as route patterns and directory numbers. For transformation pattern lookups, the patterns in NULL partitions are ignored.

Note To set the maximum list box items, choose System > Enterprise Parameters and choose CCMAdmin Parameters.

Note Make sure that the combination of pattern, route filter, and partition is unique within the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster.

Description

Enter a description of the transformation pattern.

Numbering Plan

Choose a numbering plan.

Route Filter

If your transformation pattern includes the @ wildcard, you may choose a route filter. The optional act of choosing a route filter restricts certain number patterns.

The route filters that display depend on the numbering plan that you choose from the Numbering Plan drop-down list box.

You can configure the number of items that display in this drop-down list box by using the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter. If more route filters exist than the Max List Box Items enterprise parameter specifies, the Find button displays next to the drop-down list box. Click the Find button to display the Find and List Route Filters window. Find and choose a route filter name by using the Finding a Route Filter procedure in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.

Note To set the maximum list box items, choose System > Enterprise Parameters and choose CCMAdmin Parameters.

Calling Party Transformations

Use Calling Party's External Phone Number Mask

Check the check box if you want the full, external phone number to be used for calling line identification (CLID) on outgoing calls. You may also configure an External Phone Number Mask on all phone devices.

Note The calling party transformation settings that are assigned to the route groups in a route list override any calling party transformation settings that are assigned to a route pattern that is associated with that route list.

Calling Party Transform Mask

Enter a transformation mask value. Valid entries for the NANP include the digits 0 through 9; the wildcard characters X, asterisk (*), and octothorpe (#); the uppercase characters A, B, C, and D; and blank. If this field is blank and the preceding field is not checked, no calling party transformation takes place. See the "Calling Party Number Transformations Settings" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide for more information.

Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls)

Enter prefix digits in the Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls) field. Valid entries for the NANP include the digits 0 through 9; the wildcard characters asterisk (*) and octothorpe (#); the uppercase characters A, B, C, and D; and blank.

Note The appended prefix digit does not affect which directory numbers route to the assigned device.

Calling Line ID Presentation

Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses calling line ID presentation (CLIP/CLIR) as a supplementary service to allow or restrict the originating caller's phone number on a call-by-call basis.

Choose whether you want the Cisco Unified Communications Manager to allow or restrict the display of the calling party's phone number on the called party's phone display for this route pattern.

Choose Default if you do not want to change calling line ID presentation. Choose Allowed if you want Cisco Unified Communications Manager to allow the display of the calling number. Choose Restricted if you want Cisco Unified Communications Manager to block the display of the calling number.

For more information about this field, see Table 17-6 in the "Calling Party Number Transformations Settings" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Calling Name Presentation

Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses calling name presentation (CNIP/CNIR) as a supplementary service to allow or restrict the originating caller's name on a call-by-call basis.

Choose whether you want the Cisco Unified Communications Manager to allow or restrict the display of the calling party's name on the called party's phone display for this route pattern.

Choose Default if you do not want to change calling name presentation. Choose Allowed if you want Cisco Unified Communications Manager to display the calling name information. Choose Restricted if you want Cisco Unified Communications Manager to block the display of the calling name information.

For more information about this field, see Table 17-6 in the "Calling Party Number Transformations Settings" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.
