About calling party transformation pattern setup

In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the Call Routing > Transformation Pattern > Calling Party Transformation Pattern menu path to configure calling party transformation patterns.

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

You use calling party transformation patterns with the calling party normalization feature. For information on the calling party normalization feature, see topics related to calling party normalization in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide..


Note


See topics related to local route groups in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide for a discussion of calling party transformation patterns and their use and configuration when the Local Route Group feature is configured.


Calling party transformation pattern settings

The following table describes the calling party transformation pattern settings.

Table 1 Calling party transformation pattern 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. Valid characters include the uppercase characters A, B, C, and D and \+, which represents the international escape character +.

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 topics related to wildcards and special characters in route patterns and hunt pilots 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.

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, then find and choose a partition name.

Note   

Configure transformation patterns in different non-null partitions rather than dialing patterns such as route patterns and directory numbers. For transformation pattern lookups, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the patterns in null partitions.

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, then find and choose a route filter name.

Note   

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

Urgent Priority

Cisco Unified Communications Manager sets all calling party transformation patterns with urgent priority, and you cannot change the priority of the patterns.

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.

Discard Digit Instructions

Choose the discard digit instructions that you want to be associated with this calling party transformation pattern. The discard digits that display depend on the numbering plan that you choose from the Numbering Plan drop-down list box.

Calling Party Transform Mask

Enter a transformation mask value. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9; the wildcard characters X, asterisk (*), and octothorpe (#); and the international escape character +.

If the Discard Digit Instructions field is blank, the Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls) field is blank, the Calling Party Transformation Mask field is blank, and the Use Calling Party's External Phone Number Mask is not checked, no calling party transformation takes place.

Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls)

Enter prefix digits in the Prefix Digits (Outgoing Calls) field. Valid entries include the digits 0 through 9, the wildcard characters asterisk (*) and octothorpe (#), and the international escape character +.

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 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 phone number on the called party 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.

Calling Party Number Type

Choose the format for the number type in calling party directory numbers.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager sets the calling directory number (DN) type. Cisco recommends that you do not change the default value unless you have advanced experience with dialing plans such as NANP or the European dialing plan. You may need to change the default in Europe because Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not recognize European national dialing patterns. You can also change this setting when you are connecting to a PBX that expects the calling directory number to be encoded to a non national type numbering plan.

Choose one of the following options:

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager—Use when the Cisco Unified Communications Manager sets the directory number type.
  • Unknown—Use when the dialing plan is unknown.
  • National—Use when you are dialing within the dialing plan for your country.
  • International—Use when you are dialing outside the dialing plan for your country.
  • Subscriber—Use when you are dialing a subscriber by using a shortened subscriber number.

Calling Party Numbering Plan

Choose the format for the numbering plan in calling party directory numbers.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager sets the calling DN numbering plan. Cisco recommends that you do not change the default value unless you have advanced experience with dialing plans such as NANP or the European dialing plan. You may need to change the default in Europe because Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not recognize European national dialing patterns. You can also change this setting when you are connecting to PBXs by using routing as a non-national type number.

Choose one of the following options:

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager—Use when the Cisco Unified Communications Manager sets the Numbering Plan in the directory number.
  • ISDN—Use when you are dialing outside the dialing plan for your country.
  • National Standard—Use when you are dialing within the dialing plan for your country.
  • Private—Use when you are dialing within a private network.
  • Unknown—Use when the dialing plan is unknown.
