Working with Licenses


The Cisco Unified Presence Server (CUPS), a critical component for delivering the full value of a Cisco Unified Communications environment, collects information about user availability. Using this information, applications such as Cisco Unified Personal Communicator (CUPC) and Cisco Unified CallManager can improve productivity by determining the most effective way for collaborative communication.

You can use the CUPS menu in BAT to update and export licenses of all CUPS and CUPC users.


Note You can also use BAT for the bulk license capability assignment for CUPS and CUPC using Update CUPS/CUPC Users menu.
