Adding Lines in UDP


You can add lines to a group of existing user device profiles. When you use the template to add new lines, you cannot change phone services or speed dials. Cisco CallManager Bulk Administration (BAT) ignores those fields on the template when you add lines to existing devices.

To add lines to existing phones or user device profiles, use the following procedure.

Before You Begin

You must have a BAT template for this transaction. See the "Adding or Updating Lines in a BAT Template" section on page 3-4.

You must have a CSV data file for this transaction. See the "Using the BAT Spreadsheet to Create User Device Profile CSV Data Files" section on page 32-2 for information.

Adding Lines to Existing UDPs

Use the following procedure to add lines to a group of existing user device profiles.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Add/Update Lines > Add Lines.

The UDP Add Lines Configuration window displays.

Step 2 In the File Name field, choose the CSV data file that you created for this bulk transaction.

Step 3 If you are changing the phone settings for existing phones in the template, check the Override the existing configuration check box. The user device profile information also gets updated when this check box is checked.

Step 4 In the Template Name field, choose the User Device Profile template to use for this bulk transaction.

Step 5 In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.

Step 6 Click the Run Immediately radio button to insert the phone records immediately or, click Run Later to insert the phone records at a later time.

Step 7 Click Submit to create a job for inserting the phone records.

Step 8 Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and/or activate this job.

For more information on jobs, see the "Scheduling Jobs."

For information on log files, see "BAT Log Files" section.

Using the BAT Spreadsheet to Add Lines to Existing UDPs

To create the CSV data file by using the BAT spreadsheet for adding lines to existing UDPs, use the following procedure.

For information about installing and using the BAT spreadsheet, see the "Using the BAT Spreadsheet for Gathering Data" section on page 1-8.

Procedure


Step 1 To open the BAT Spreadsheet, locate and double-click the BAT.xlt file.

Step 2 When prompted, click Enable Macros to use the spreadsheet capabilities.

Step 3 To display the fields, click the Add Lines tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

Step 4 Enter data for an individual device profile on each line in the spreadsheet. Complete all mandatory fields and any relevant optional fields. Each column heading specifies the length of the field and whether it is required or optional. Table 41-1 describes the fields for adding lines in the BAT spreadsheet.

Step 5 To transfer the data from the BAT Excel spreadsheet into a CSV formatted data file, click Export to BAT Format.

The system saves the file to C:\XLSDataFiles\ or you can use Browse to save your file in another existing folder on your local workstation. The filename is

<tabname>-<timestamp>.txt

where <tabname> represents the type of input file that you created, such as UDPs, and <timestamp> represents the precise date and time that the file was created.


Note If you enter a comma in one of the fields, BAT.xlt encloses that field entry in double quotes when you export to BAT format.

If you enter a blank row in the spreadsheet, the system treats the empty row as the end of the file. The system does not convert data that is entered after a blank line to the BAT format.


Upload the CSV file to Cisco CallManager Server first node. See "Uploading a File" section on page 2-3.



Note For information on how to read the exported CSV data file, click the link to View Sample File in the Insert Phones window in BAT.
