Application Dial Rule Configuration Settings

In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the Call Routing > Dial Rules > Application Dial Rules menu path to configure application dial rules.

The administrator uses dial rules configuration to add and sort the priority of dialing rules. Dial rules for applications such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant automatically strip numbers from or add numbers to telephone numbers that a user dials. For example, the dial rules automatically add the digit 9 in front of a 7-digit telephone number to provide access to an outside line.

For example, in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Assistant, the assistant can perform a directory search from the assistant console. The assistant can drag and drop the directory entry to the My Calls panel on the assistant console, which invokes a call to the number that is listed in the entry. The dial rules apply to the number that is listed in the entry before the call gets made.

Tips About Configuring Application Dial Rules

When you perform the procedure to add a new dial rule or update an existing dial rule, see "Application Dial Rules Configuration Error Checking" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide for dial rule design and error checking.


Note If more than one dial rule exists, you can change the priority of the dial rules. See the "Reprioritizing a Dial Rule" section.


Using the GUI

For instructions on how to use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Graphical User Interface (GUI) to find, delete, configure, or copy records, see the "Navigating the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Application" section on page 1-13 and its subsections, which explain how to use the GUI and detail the functions of the buttons and icons.
