In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the Call Routing > Class of Control > Calling Search Space menu path to configure calling search spaces (CSS).

A calling search space comprises an ordered list of route partitions that are typically assigned to devices. Calling search spaces determine the partitions that calling devices search when they are attempting to complete a call. For more detailed information on calling search spaces and partitions, see "Partitions and Calling Search Spaces" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.

Tips About Deleting Calling Search Spaces

You cannot delete calling search spaces that devices, lines (DNs), translation patterns, or other items are using. To find out which devices, lines, translation patterns, or other items are using the calling search space, choose the Dependency Records from the Related Links drop-down list box in the Calling Search Space Configuration window and click Go. 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. If you try to delete a calling search space that is in use, Cisco Unified Communications Manager displays a message. Before deleting a calling search space that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following tasks:

Assign a different calling search space to any devices, lines, or translation patterns that are using the calling search space that you want to delete. See the "Directory Number Configuration" section and the "Translation Pattern Configuration Settings" section.

Delete the devices, lines, or translation patterns that are using the calling search space that you want to delete. See the "Removing a Directory Number from a Phone" section, and the "Tips About Deleting Translation Patterns" section.


Caution Before initiating this deletion, check carefully to ensure that you are deleting the correct calling search space. You cannot retrieve deleted calling search spaces. If you accidentally delete a calling search space, you must rebuild it.

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 and its subsections, which explain how to use the GUI and detail the functions of the buttons and icons.

Configuration Settings Table

Table 41-1 describes the calling search space configuration settings. For related procedures, see the "Related Topics" section.

Table 41-1 Calling Search Space Configuration Settings 

Field
Description
Calling Search Space Information

Name

Enter a name in the Calling Search Space Name field. The name can comprise up to 50 alphanumeric characters and can contain any combination of spaces, periods (.), hyphens (-), and underscore characters (_). Ensure each calling search space name is unique to the system.

Note Use concise and descriptive names for your calling search spaces. The CompanynameLocationCalltype format usually provides a sufficient level of detail and is short enough to enable you to quickly and easily identify a calling search space. For example, CiscoDallasMetroCS identifies a calling search space for toll-free, inter-local access and transport area (LATA) calls from the Cisco office in Dallas.

Description

Enter a description in the Description field. The description can include up to 50 characters in any language, but it cannot include double-quotes ("), percentage sign (%), ampersand (&), back-slash (\), or angle brackets (<>).

Route Partitions for this Calling Search Space

Available Partitions

Choose a partition in the Available Partitions list box and add it to the Selected Partitions list box by clicking the arrow button between the two list boxes.

To add a range of partitions at once, click the first partition in the range; then, hold down the Shift key while clicking the last partition in the range. Click the arrow button between the two list boxes to add the range of partitions.

To add multiple partitions that are not contiguous, hold down the Control (Ctrl) key while clicking multiple partitions. Click the arrow button between the two list boxes to add the chosen partitions.

Note The length of the partition names limits the maximum number of partitions that can be added to a calling search space. Table 41-2 provides examples of the maximum number of partitions that can be added to a calling search space if partition names are of fixed length.

Selected Partitions

To change the priority of a partition, choose a partition name in the Selected Partitions list box. Move the partition up or down in the list by clicking the arrows on the right side of the list box.


Table 41-2 provides examples of the maximum number of partitions that can be added to a calling search space if partition names are of fixed length. See "Partition Name Limitations" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide for details about how this maximum number is calculated.
