Directory Number Configuration Settings

Using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, you configure and modify directory numbers (DNs) that are assigned to specific phones. Use the Directory Number Configuration window to perform the following tasks:

Add or remove directory numbers.

Configure call forward, call pickup, call waiting, and multilevel precedence and preemption (MLPP) options.

Set the display text that appears on the called party phone when a call is placed from a line.

Configure ring settings.

Configure Cisco Unity Connection voice mailboxes.

Table 64-1 describes the fields that are available in the Directory Number Configuration window. For related procedures, see the "Related Topics" section.


Note Shared lines always have identical DN settings, except for the field sections in the Directory Number Configuration window that contain the naming convention "on Device SEPXXXXXXXXXXXX," which are maintained/mapped to a specific device.

If you add a shared line to a device, the shared DN configuration settings, such as Calling Search Space and Call Forward and Pickup, will display. If these DN configuration settings are changed, the new settings will apply to all the shared lines.


Table 64-1 Directory Number Configuration Settings 

Field
Description
Directory Number Information

Directory Number

Enter a dialable phone number. Values can include route pattern wildcards and numeric characters (0 through 9). Special characters such as a question mark (?), exclamation mark (!), backslash (\), brackets ([ ]), plus sign (+), dash (-), asterisk (*), caret (^), pound sign (#), and an X are also allowable. Special characters that are not allowed are a period (.), at sign (@), dollar sign ($), and percent sign (%).

At the beginning of the pattern, enter \+ if you want to use the international escape character +. For this field, \+ does not represent a wildcard; instead, entering \+ represents a dialable digit.

Note When a pattern is used as a directory number, the display on the phone and the caller ID that displays on the dialed phone will both contain characters other than digits. To avoid this, Cisco recommends that you provide a value for Display (Internal Caller ID), Line text label, and External phone number mask.

The directory number that you enter can appear in more than one partition.

Route Partition

Choose the partition to which the directory number belongs. Make sure that the directory number that you enter in the Directory Number field is unique within the partition that you choose. If you do not want to restrict access to the directory number, choose <None> for the partition.

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 (see the "Finding a Partition" section on page 52-3).

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

Description

Enter a description of the directory number and route partition.

Alerting Name

Enter a name that you want to display on the phone of the caller.

This setting, which supports the Identification Services for the QSIG protocol, applies to shared and nonshared directory numbers. If you configure an alerting name for a directory number with shared-line appearances, when the phone rings at the terminating PINX, the system performs the following tasks:

Forwards the name of the caller that is assigned to the directory number.

Applies the Connected Name Restrictions (CONR) that are configured for the translation pattern (if restrictions exist); the originating PINX may modify the CONR, depending on the route pattern configuration.

If you do not configure an alerting name, "Name Not Available" may display on the caller phone. If you do not enter a name for the Display (Internal Caller ID) field, the information in the Alerting Name field displays in the Display (Internal Caller ID) field.

Setting the Always Display Original Dialed Number service parameter to True impacts the alerting name functionality. If you set the service parameter to True, the alerting name does not display on the calling phone; only the original dialed number displays.

ASCII Alerting Name

This field provides the same information as the Alerting Name field, but you must limit input to ASCII characters. Devices that do not support Unicode (internationalized) characters display the content of the Alerting Name ASCII field.

Active

To view this check box on the Directory Number Configuration window, access an unassigned directory number from the Route Plan Report window. Checking this check box allows calls to this DN to be forwarded (if forwarding is configured). If check box is not checked, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the DN.

Allow Control of Device from CTI

Check this check box to allow CTI to control and monitor a line on a device with which this directory number is associated

If the directory number specifies a shared line, ensure the check box is enabled as long as at least one associated device specifies a combination of device type and protocol that CTI supports.

Line Group

From this drop-down list box, choose a line group with which to associate this DN.

To edit or view the line group information for a line group, choose a line group from the drop-down list box and click the Edit Line Group button. See the "Line Group Configuration" section on page 45-1 for more information about configuring line groups.

Note If you configure a DN as part of a line group, you will not be able to associate that DN with a CTI port nor a CTI route point. Conversely, when you configure a CTI port or CTI route point, you will not be able to specify a DN that already belongs to a line group or to a hunt list. Furthermore, if a DN is a member of a line group or hunt list, any device (CTI port, CTI route point, phone that is running SCCP, or phone that is running SIP) that uses that DN should not be associated with a CTI user.

Associated Devices

After you associate this DN with a device(s), this pane displays the devices with which this DN is associated.

To edit a device with which this DN is associated, choose a device name in the Associated Devices pane and click the Edit Device button. The Phone Configuration window or Device Profile Configuration window displays for the device that you choose. See the "Cisco Unified IP Phone Configuration" chapter or the "Device Profile Configuration" chapter for more information about configuring phones or device profiles.

To edit a line appearance that has been defined for this DN, choose a device name in the Associated Devices pane and click the Edit Line Appearance button. The Directory Number Configuration window or Device Profile Configuration window refreshes to show the line appearance for this DN on the device that you choose.

To associate a device to this DN from the list of devices in the Dissociate Devices pane, choose a device in the Dissociate Devices pane and add it to the Associated Devices pane by clicking the up arrow between the two panes.

Dissociate Devices

If you choose to dissociate a DN from a device, this pane displays the device(s) from which you dissociate this DN.

Choose a device in the Associated Devices pane and add it to the Dissociate Devices pane by clicking the down arrow between the two panes.

Directory Number Settings

Voice Mail Profile

Choose from list of Voice Mail Profiles that the Voice Mail Profile Configuration defines.

The first option specifies <None>, which represents the current default Voice Mail Profile that is configured in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration.

Calling Search Space

From the drop-down list box, choose the appropriate calling search space. A calling search space comprises a collection of partitions that are searched for numbers that are called from this directory number. The value that you choose applies to all devices that are using this directory number. For configuration information about calling search space for directory numbers, see the "Calling Search Space" section.

Changes result in an update of the numbers that the Call Pickup Group field lists.

You can configure calling search space for Forward All, Forward Busy, Forward No Answer, Forward No Coverage, and Forward on CTI Failure directory numbers. The value that you choose applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

You must configure either primary Forward All Calling Search Space or Secondary Forward All Calling Search Space or both for Call Forward All to work properly. The system uses these concatenated fields (Primary CFA CSS + Secondary CFA CSS) to validate the CFA destination and forward the call to the CFA destination.

Note If the system is using partitions and calling search spaces, Cisco recommends that you configure the other call forward calling search spaces as well. When a call is forwarded or redirected to the call forward destination, the configured call forward calling search space gets used to forward the call. If the forward calling search space is None, the forward operation may fail if the system is using partitions and calling search spaces. For example, if you configure the Forward Busy destination, you should also configure the Forward Busy Calling Search Space. If you do not configure the Forward Busy Calling Search Space and the Forward Busy destination is in a partition, the forward operation may fail.

When you forward calls by using the CFwdAll softkey on the phone, the automatic combination of the line CSS and device CSS does not get used. Only the configured Primary CFA CSS and Secondary CFA CSS get used. If both of these fields are None, the combination results in two null partitions, which may cause the operation to fail.

If you want to restrict users from forwarding calls on their phones, you must choose a restrictive calling search space from the Forward All Calling Search Space field.

For more information, refer to Partitions and Calling Search Spaces, in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Presence Group

Configure this field with the Presence feature.

From the drop-down list box, choose a Presence group for this directory number. The selected group specifies the devices, end users, and application users that can monitor this directory number.

The default value for Presence Group specifies Standard Presence group, configured with installation. Presence groups that are configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration also appear in the drop-down list box.

Presence authorization works with presence groups to allow or block presence requests between groups. Refer to the "Presence" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide for information about configuring permissions between groups.

User Hold MOH Audio Source

Choose the audio source that plays when a user initiates a hold action.

Network Hold MOH Audio Source

Choose the audio source that plays when the network initiates a hold action.

Auto Answer

Choose one of the following options to activate the Auto Answer feature for this directory number:

Auto Answer Off <Default>

Auto Answer with Headset

Auto Answer with Speakerphone

Note Make sure that the headset or speakerphone is not disabled when you choose Auto Answer with headset or Auto Answer with speakerphone.

Note Do not configure Auto Answer for devices that have shared lines.

AAR Settings

AAR (Voice Mail, AAR Destination Mask, AAR Group)

The settings in this row of fields specify treatment of calls for which insufficient bandwidth exists to reach the destination. Automated alternate routing (AAR) handles these calls that are routed to the AAR Destination Mask or Voice Mail.

Configure the following values:

Voice Mail—Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Coverage/Destination box and Calling Search Space.

AAR Destination Mask—Use this setting instead of the external phone number mask to determine the AAR Destination to be dialed.

AAR Group—This setting provides the prefix digits that are used to route calls that are otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth. An AAR group setting of None indicates that no rerouting of blocked calls will be attempted.

Retain this destination in the call forwarding history

This setting determines whether the AAR leg of the call will be present in the call forwarding history. If you uncheck the check box, the AAR leg of the call is not present in the call history. If you check the check box, the AAR leg of the call will be present in the call history.

By default, the directory number configuration retains the AAR leg of the call in the call history, which ensures that the AAR forward to voice-messaging system will prompt the user to leave a voice message.

Call Forward and Call Pickup Settings

Calling Search Space Activation Policy

Three possible values exist for this option:

Use System Default

With Configured CSS

With Activating Device/Line CSS

If you select the With Configured CSS option, the Forward All Calling Search Space that is explicitly configured in the Directory Number Configuration window controls the forward all activation and call forwarding. If the Forward All Calling Search Space is set to None, no CSS gets configured for Forward All. A forward all activation attempt to any directory number with a partition will fail. No change in the Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All occurs during the forward all activation.

If you prefer to utilize the combination of the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space without explicitly configuring a Forward All Calling Search Space, select With Activating Device/Line CSS for the Calling Search Space Activation Policy. With this option, when Forward All is activated from the phone, the Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All automatically gets populated with the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space for the activating device.

With this configuration (Calling Search Space Activation Policy set to With Activating Device/Line), if the Forward All Calling Search Space is set to None, when forward all is activated through the phone, the combination of Directory Number Calling Search Space and activating Device Calling Search Space gets used to verify the forward all attempt.

If you configure the Calling Search Space Activation Policy to Use System Default, then the CFA CSS Activation Policy cluster-wide service parameter determines which Forward All Calling Search space will be used. If the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter gets set to With Configured CSS, then Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All will be used for Call Forwarding. If CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter gets set to With Activating Device/Line CSS, then Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All will be automatically populated with the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space for the activating device.

 

CFA CSS Activation Policy Service Parameter

Ensure the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter that displays in the Clusterwide Parameters (Feature - Forward) section of the Service Parameter Configuration window is set correctly for call forward all to work as intended. The parameter includes two possible values:

With Configured CSS (default)

With Activating Device/Line CSS

When the Calling Search Space Activation Policy is set to Use System Default, the value of the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter gets used to determine the Call Forward All CSS.

When the option With Configured CSS is selected, the primary and secondary CFA Calling Search Space get used. When the option With Activating Device/Line CSS is selected, the primary and secondary CFA Calling Search Space get updated with primary line Calling Search Space and activating Device Calling Search Space.

By default, the value of the CFA CSS Activation Policy service parameter is set to With Configured CSS.

See Service Parameters Configuration for information on accessing and configuring service parameters.

Roaming

When a device is roaming in the same device mobility group, Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the Device Mobility CSS to reach the local gateway. If a user sets Call Forward All at the phone, the CFA CSS is set to None, and the CFA CSS Activation Policy is set to With Activating Device/Line CSS, then:

The Device CSS and Line CSS get used as the CFA CSS when the device is in its home location.

If the device is roaming within the same device mobility group, the Device Mobility CSS from the Roaming Device Pool and the Line CSS get used as the CFA CSS.

If the device is roaming within a different device mobility group, the Device CSS and Line CSS get used as the CFA CSS.

Forward All

The settings in this row of fields specify the forwarding treatment for calls to this directory number if the directory number is set to forward all calls. The Calling Search Space field gets used to validate the Forward All destination that is entered when the user activates Call Forward All from the phone. This field also gets used to redirect the call to the Call Forward All destination.

Specify the following values:

Voice Mail—Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

Note When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

Destination—This setting indicates the directory number to which all calls are forwarded. Use any dialable phone number, including an outside destination.

Calling Search Space—This setting applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All

Because call forwarding is a line-based feature, in cases where the device calling search space is unknown, the system uses only the line calling search space to forward the call. If the line calling search space is restrictive and not routable, the forward attempt fails.

Addition of a secondary calling search space for Call Forward All provides a solution to enable forwarding. The primary calling search space for Call Forward All and secondary calling search space for Call Forward All get concatenated (Primary CFA CSS + Secondary CFA CSS). Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses this combination to validate the CFA destination and to forward the call.

See the description for the field, Calling Search Space, for information about how the combination of Primary and Secondary CFA CSSs works

Forward Busy Internal

The settings in this row of fields specify the forwarding treatment for internal calls to this directory number if the directory number is busy. See Busy Trigger for information on when a line is considered busy. The call forward destination and Calling Search Space field get used to redirect the call to the forward destination. See

Specify the following values:

Voice Mail—Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window for internal calls.

Note When this check box is checked, the calling search space of the voice mail pilot gets used. Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

Note When this check box is checked for internal calls, the system automatically checks the Voice Mail check box for external calls. If you do not want external calls to forward to the voice-messaging system, you must uncheck the Voice Mail check box for external calls.

Destination—This setting indicates the call forward busy destination for internal calls. Use any dialable phone number, including an outside destination.

Note When you enter a destination value for internal calls, the system automatically copies this value to the Destination field for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different destination, you must enter a different value in the Destination field for external calls.

Calling Search Space—The Forward Busy internal Calling Search Space is used to forward the call to the Forward Busy Internal destination. It applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

Note If the system is using partitions and calling search spaces, Cisco recommends that you configure the forward calling search spaces. When a call is forwarded or redirected to the call forward destination, the configured call forward calling search space gets used to forward the call. If the forward calling search space is None, the forward operation may fail if the system is using partitions and calling search spaces. For example, if you configure the Forward Busy Destination, you should also configure the Forward Busy Calling Search Space. If you do not configure the Forward Busy Calling Search Space and the Forward Busy destination is in a partition, the forward operation may fail.

Note When you choose a Calling Search Space for internal calls, the system automatically copies this setting to the Calling Search Space setting for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different calling search space, you must choose a different setting in the Calling Search Space drop-down list box.

Forward Busy External

The settings in this row of fields specify the forwarding treatment for external calls to this directory number if the directory number is busy. See Busy Trigger for information on when a line is considered busy. The call forward destination and Calling Search Space field get used to redirect the call to the forward destination.

Specify the following values:

Voice Mail—Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window for external calls.

Note When this check box is checked, the calling search space of the voice mail pilot gets used. Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

Note When the Voice Mail check box is checked for internal calls, the system automatically checks the Voice Mail check box for external calls. If you do not want external calls to forward to the voice-messaging system, you must uncheck the Voice Mail check box for external calls.

Destination—This setting indicates the call forward busy destination for external calls. Use any dialable phone number, including an outside destination.

Note When you enter a destination value for internal calls, the system automatically copies this value to the Destination field for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different destination, you must enter a different value in the Destination field for external calls.

Calling Search Space—The Forward Busy external Calling Search Space is used to forward the call to the Forward Busy External destination. It applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

Note If the system is using partitions and calling search spaces, Cisco recommends that you configure the forward calling search spaces. When a call is forwarded or redirected to the call forward destination, the configured call forward calling search space gets used to forward the call. If the forward calling search space is None, the forward operation may fail if the system is using partitions and calling search spaces. For example, if you configure the Forward Busy Destination, you should also configure the Forward Busy Calling Search Space. If you do not configure the Forward Busy Calling Search Space and the Forward Busy destination is in a partition, the forward operation may fail.

Note When you choose a Calling Search Space for internal calls, the system automatically copies this setting to the Calling Search Space setting for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different calling search space, you must choose a different setting in the Calling Search Space drop-down list box.

Forward No Answer Internal

The settings in this row of fields specify the forwarding treatment for internal calls to this directory number if the directory number does not answer. The call forward destination and Calling Search Space field get used to redirect the call to the forward destination. Specify the following values:

Voice Mail—Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

Note When this check box is checked, the calling search space of the voice mail pilot gets used. Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

Note When this check box is checked for internal calls, the system automatically checks the Voice Mail check box for external calls. If you do not want external calls to forward to the voice-messaging system, you must uncheck the Voice Mail check box for external calls.

Destination—This setting indicates the directory number to which an internal call is forwarded when the call is not answered. Use any dialable phone number, including an outside destination.

Note When you enter a destination value for internal calls, the system automatically copies this value to the Destination field for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different destination, you must enter a different value in the Destination field for external calls.

Calling Search Space—The Forward No Answer internal Calling Search Space is used to forward the call to the Forward No Answer internal destination. It applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

Note If the system is using partitions and calling search spaces, Cisco recommends that you configure the forward calling search spaces. When a call is forwarded or redirected to the call forward destination, the configured call forward calling search space gets used to forward the call. If the forward calling search space is None, the forward operation may fail if the system is using partitions and calling search spaces. For example, if you configure the Forward No Answer destination, you should also configure the Forward No Answer Calling Search Space. If you do not configure the Forward No Answer Calling Search Space, and the Forward No Answer destination is in a partition, the forward operation may fail.

Note When you choose a Calling Search Space for internal calls, the system automatically copies this setting to the Calling Search Space setting for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different calling search space, you must choose a different setting in the Calling Search Space drop-down list box for external calls.

Forward No Answer External

The settings in this row of fields specify the forwarding treatment for external calls to this directory number if the directory number does not answer. The call forward destination and Calling Search Space field get used to redirect the call to the forward destination. Specify the following values:

Destination—This setting indicates the directory number to which an external call is forwarded when the call is not answered. Use any dialable phone number, including an outside destination.

Note When you enter a destination value for internal calls, the system automatically copies this value to the Destination field for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different destination, you must enter a different value in the Destination field for external calls.

Calling Search Space—The Forward No Answer external Calling Search Space is used to forward the call to the Forward No Answer external destination. It applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

Note If the system is using partitions and calling search spaces, Cisco recommends that you configure the forward calling search spaces. When a call is forwarded or redirected to the call forward destination, the configured call forward calling search space gets used to forward the call. If the forward calling search space is None, the forward operation may fail if the system is using partitions and calling search spaces. For example, if you configure the Forward No Answer destination, you should also configure the Forward No Answer Calling Search Space. If you do not configure the Forward No Answer Calling Search Space, and the Forward No Answer destination is in a partition, the forward operation may fail.

Note When you choose a Calling Search Space for internal calls, the system automatically copies this setting to the Calling Search Space setting for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different calling search space, you must choose a different setting in the Calling Search Space drop-down list box for external calls.

Forward No Coverage Internal

For complete information about Call Coverage, see Call Coverage in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

The call forward destination and Calling Search Space field get used to redirect the call to the forward destination. Specify the following values:

Calling Search Space—This setting applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

Forward Unregistered Internal

This field applies to unregistered internal DN calls. The calls are rerouted to a specified Destination Number or Voice Mail.

Note You must also specify the maximum number of forwards in the Service Parameters Configuration window for a Directory Number. See the "Service Parameters Configuration" section on page 25-1.

Forward Unregistered External

This field applies to unregistered external DN calls. The calls are rerouted to a specified Destination Number or Voice Mail.

Note You must also specify the maximum number of forwards in the Service Parameters Configuration window for a Directory Number. See the "Service Parameters Configuration" section on page 25-1.

No Answer Ring Duration (seconds)

Used in conjunction with Call Forward No Answer Destination, this field sets the timer for how long the phone will ring before it gets forwarded. Leave this setting blank to use the value that is set in the Cisco CallManager service parameter, Forward No Answer Timer.


Caution By default, Cisco Unified Communications Manager makes the time for the T301 timer longer than the No Answer Ring Duration time; if the set time for the T301 timer expires before the set time for the No Answer Ring Duration expires, the call ends, and no call forwarding can occur. If you choose to do so, you can configure the time for the No Answer Ring Duration to be greater than the time for the T301 timer. For information on the T301 timer, choose System > Service Parameters; choose the server, the Cisco CallManager service, and then the parameter in the window that displays.

Party Entrance Tone

From the Party Entrance Tone drop-down list box, choose one of the following options:

Default—Use the value that you configured in the Party Entrance Tone service parameter.

On—A tone plays on the phone when a basic call changes to a multi-party call; that is, a barge call, cBarge call, ad hoc conference, meet-me conference, or a joined call. In addition, a different tone plays when a party leaves the multi-party call. If the controlling device, that is, the originator of the multi-party call has a built-in bridge, the tone gets played to all parties if you choose On for the controlling device. When the controlling device leaves the call, Cisco Unified Communications Manager identifies whether another device on the call can play the tone; if another device on the call can play the tone, Cisco Unified Communications Manager plays the tone. If the controlling device cannot play the tone, Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not play the tone even if you enable the party entrance tone feature.

Off—A tone does not play on the phone when a basic call changes to a multi-party call.

Line [number] on Device [device name]

Note These fields display only after you associate this directory number with a device.

Display (Internal Caller ID)

Leave this field blank to have the system display the extension.

Use a maximum of 30 alphanumeric characters. Typically, use the user name or the directory number (if using the directory number, the person receiving the call may not see the proper identity of the caller).

Setting applies only to the current device unless you check the check box at right (Update Shared Device Settings) and click the Propagate Selected button. (The check box at right displays only if other devices share this directory number.)

Disable—No alert is sent to member of the call pickup group.

Beep Only—A beep beep is sent to members of the call pickup group.

Recording Option

This field determines the recording option on the line appearance of an agent. By default, the recording option specifies Call Recording Disabled.

Choose one of the following options:

Call Recording Disabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are not recorded.

Automatic Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are automatically recorded.

Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are recorded if an application invokes calling recording.

When the recording option is set to either Automatic Call Recording Enabled or Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled, the line appearance can be associated with a recording profile.

When automatic recording is enabled, the application recording requests get rejected.

Recording Profile

This field determines the recording profile on the line appearance of an agent. Choose an existing recording profile from the drop-down list box. To create a recording profile, use the Device > Device Settings > Recording Profile menu option.

The default value specifies None.

Set the monitoring calling search space on the supervisor line appearance window. Choose an existing calling search space from the drop-down list box.

The default value specifies None.

Logged Missed Calls

If the check box displays as checked, which is the default for this setting, Cisco Unified Communications Manager logs missed calls in the call history for the shared line appearance on the phone. If you uncheck the check box, missed calls do not get logged to the shared line appearance.

Multiple Call/Call Waiting Settings on Device [device name]

Note These fields display only after you associate this directory number with a device.

Maximum Number of Calls

You can configure up to 200 calls for a line on a device, with the limiting factor being the total number of calls that are configured on the device. As you configure the number of calls for one line, the calls that are available for another line decrease.

The default specifies 4. If the phone does not allow multiple calls for each line, the default specifies 2.

For CTI route points, you can configure up to 10,000 calls for each port. The default specifies 5000 calls. Use this field in conjunction with the Busy Trigger field.


Note Although the default specifies 5000 calls for maximum number of active calls that can be configured on a CTI route point, Cisco recommends that you set the maximum number of calls to no more than 200 per route point. This will prevent system performance degradation. If the CTI application needs more than 200 calls, Cisco recommends that you configure multiple CTI route points.


Tip To review how this setting works for devices with shared line appearances, refer to "Shared Line Appearance" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Busy Trigger

This setting, which works in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls and Call Forward Busy, determines the maximum number of calls to be presented at the line. If maximum number of calls is set for 50 and the busy trigger is set to 40, incoming call 41 gets rejected with a busy cause (and will get forwarded if Call Forward Busy is set). If this line is shared, all the lines must be busy before incoming calls get rejected.

Use this field in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls for CTI route points. The default specifies 4500 calls.

Tip To review how this setting works for devices with shared line appearances, refer to "Shared Line Appearance" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Configuring a Directory Number

Follow these instructions to add or update a directory number (DN). You can configure the call forward, call pickup, and MLPP phone features while you are adding the directory number.


Tip You can assign patterns to directory numbers; for example, 352XX. To avoid user confusion when you assign a pattern to a directory number, add text or digits to the DN configuration fields, Line Text Label, Display (Internal Caller ID), and External Phone Number Mask. (These fields display for a directory number only after you add the directory number and you associate the directory number with a phone.)

For example, add the user name to the line text label and internal caller ID, but add the outside line number to the external number mask, so when the calling information displays, it says John Chan, not 352XX.


For information on how to configure Private Line Automatic Ringdown (PLAR), see the "Configuring Private Line Automatic Ringdown (PLAR)" section.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Call Routing > Directory Number.

Configuring Private Line Automatic Ringdown (PLAR)

You can configure Private Line Automatic Ringdown (PLAR), so when the user goes off hook (or the NewCall softkey or line key gets pressed), the phone immediately dials a preconfigured number. The phone user cannot dial any other number from the phone line that gets configured for PLAR.

PLAR works with features such as barge, cBarge, or single button barge. If you use PLAR with a feature, you must configure the feature as described in the feature documentation, and you must configure the PLAR destination, which is a directory number that is used specifically for PLAR.

The following example describes how to enable PLAR functionality for phones that support barge and that are running SCCP and SIP. A and A' represent shared-line devices that you configured for barge, and B1 represents the directory number for the PLAR destination. To enable PLAR functionality from A/A', see the following example:


Tip Step 1 through Step 4 apply if you want to configure PLAR for phones that are running SCCP. For phones that are running SIP, you must perform Step 1 through Step 6. Before you attempt to configure PLAR, verify that your phone model supports PLAR. To determine whether your phone supports PLAR, refer to the Cisco Unified IP Phone Administration Guide that supports your phone model and this release of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Example for How to Configure PLAR


Step 1 Create a partition, for example, P1, and a calling search space, for example CSS1, so CSS1 contains P1. (In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Call Routing > Class of Control > Partition or Calling Search Space.)

Step 2 Create a null (blank) translation pattern, for example, TP1, which contains calling search space CSS1 and partition P1. In this null (blank) pattern, make sure that you enter the directory number for the B1 PLAR destination in the Called Party Transformation Mask field. (In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Call Routing > Translation Pattern.)

Step 3 Assign the calling search space, CS1, to either A or A'. (In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Device > Phone.)

Step 4 Assign the P1 partition to the directory number for B1, which is the PLAR destination. (In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Call Routing > Directory Number.)

Step 5 For phones that are running SIP, create a SIP dial rule. (In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Call Routing > Dial Rules > SIP Dial Rules. Choose 7940_7960_OTHER. Enter a name for the pattern; for example, PLAR1. Click Save; then, click Add Plar. Click Save.)

Step 6 For phones that are running SIP, assign the SIP dial rule configuration that you created for PLAR to the phones, which, in this example, are A and A'. ((In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Device > Phone. Choose the SIP dial rule configuration from the SIP Dial Rules drop-down list box.)


Removing a Directory Number from a Phone

Perform the following procedure to remove a directory number (DN) from a specific phone.

Before You Begin

If you try to remove a directory number that is in use, Cisco Unified Communications Manager displays a message. To find out which line groups are using the directory number, click the Dependency Records link from the Directory Number 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, refer to the "Accessing Dependency Records" section on page A-2.

When you remove a directory number from a phone, the number still exists within Cisco Unified Communications Manager. To see a list of directory numbers that are not associated with phones, use the Route Plan Report menu option. For more information, refer to the "Deleting Unassigned Directory Numbers" section on page 67-2.
