Text-Based CSV Files


Cisco Unified CallManager Bulk Administration (BAT) uses data that is entered in a comma separated values (CSV) file format to provide information for insert transactions to the Cisco Unified CallManager database on the first node server. By using the CSV data format, you can build a textual file that contains data records in a tabular format.

You can create a CSV data file by using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad. You must use a separate line to enter data for each record. Separate each data field with a comma and include comma separators for blank fields. Enter data on every line in the data file because an error occurs during the insert transaction if you enter a blank line in a CSV file.

When you insert the data records to the Cisco Unified CallManager database, BAT accesses a set of designated folders that reside on the server that is running the first node database. For BAT to access the appropriate CSV data file for the transaction, you must upload the CSV data file to the first node database server of Cisco Unified CallManager. See the "Uploading a File" section.

The following topics provide information and file formats for the following text-based CSV files:

Creating a Text-Based CSV File for Phones

Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding phones, you can create the comma separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas.

Use the following procedure to create a CSV text file for phones, IP telephony devices, and user combinations.

Procedure


Step 1 Open a text editor (such as Microsoft Notepad) or any application that allows you to export or create a CSV file.

Step 2 Use a separate line to enter the values for each phone, IP telephony device, or user combination that you want to add to Cisco Unified CallManager. You must create separate CSV files for each type of device. Keep in mind the following rules when you create the CSV data file.

Always include comma separators, even if a field is blank.

Specify the user ID if the phone is to be associated to a user.

Directory Number fields are optional only when you are creating the CSV file for use with a BAT template that has no lines. If lines are configured on the BAT phone template, you must supply directory numbers in the CSV file for each device.

An error occurs when you insert a CSV file with blank lines.

See the "Phone CSV Data File Formats" section for information about the CSV data file formats that you must use for different phone types.

Step 3 Upload the CSV file to the first node of Cisco Unified CallManager. See the "Uploading a File" section.


For information about CSV file formats for other phone types, see these topics:

Creating a Text-Based CSV File for Users

Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding users, you can create the comma separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas.

Use this procedure to create a CSV text file for users.

Procedure


Step 1 Open a text editor (such as Microsoft Notepad) or any application that allows you to export or create a CSV file.

Step 2 Using a separate line for each user, enter the values for each user that you want to add to Cisco Unified CallManager. See Users File Format, for detailed information about the formatting that you must use in the text-based CSV file.

You can associate any number of existing devices to a new user by entering the device name of all the devices separated by a comma at the end of the record.

You can associate a directory number to a user, even if that user does not control any device.


Note An error occurs if any blank lines exist in the CSV file.


Step 3 Upload the file to first node of the Cisco Unified CallManager. See "Downloading a File" section.

Related Topics

See the "Related Topics" section.

Users File Format


Tip You must specify PIN and Password values, either on the CSV file or when using BAT for file insertion. If you want to apply individual PINs or passwords for each user or group of users, specify the PIN and password information in the CSV file. If you want to use a default PIN and password that all users can use, do not specify PIN or password values in the CSV file and instead provide this information when you use BAT to insert the CSV file in Cisco Unified CallManager.


The following sample format and examples show the fields, field length, and whether the field is optional or mandatory for a text-based CSV file for users.

First Name(Optional, 1 to 50 characters),Last Name(Mandatory, 1 to 50 characters),User ID(Mandatory, up to 30 characters),Manager User ID(Optional, up to 30 characters, must use existing ID in global directory),Department (Optional, up to 50 characters),PIN (Optional, up to 20 numerals),Default Profile(Optional, up to 50 characters),User Locale (Optional, up to 50 characters),Telephone Number (Optional, up to 20 numerals),Primary Extension (Optional, up to 50 numerals),Associated PC (Optional, up to 50 characters),ICD Extension(Optional, up to 50 numerals),Mail ID (Optional, up to30 characters),Presence Group (Optional, up to 50 characters),Subscribe Calling Search Space (Optional, up to 50 characters)

Updating Users File Format

Use a text editor to create the CSV text file for updating users. Upload the file to first node server. See "Uploading a File" section.

When you are updating a record, you need to supply all mandatory fields for a file. If you have stored values in the optional fields, and you update a record with blank optional fields, you will reset the values to blank. See the "Retaining Stored Values" section for information about keeping previously stored values.

The following sample format shows the field length and string types followed by examples of CSV files for updating users.

UserID (Mandatory, 1 to 30 characters),Password (Optional, up to 20 characters),Manager (Optional, up to 30 characters, must use existing ID in global directory),Department (Optional, up to 50 characters),PIN (Optional, up to 20 numerals),Default Profile(Optional, up to 50 characters),User Locale (Optional, up to 50 characters),Telephone Number (Optional, up to 20 numerals),Primary Extension (Optional, up to 50 numerals),Associated PC (Optional, up to 50 characters),ICD Extension(Optional, up to 50 numerals),Mail ID (Optional, up to30 characters)

Creating a Text-Based CSV File for User Device Profile

Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding user device profiles, you can create the comma separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas.


Note If you use comma or double quotes as part of string in one of the fields, you must enclose the entire text string with double quotes.


To create a CSV text file for user device profiles, use this procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Open Microsoft Notepad to create the CSV file.

Step 2 Using a separate line for each user device profile, enter the values for each user device profile that you want to add to Cisco Unified CallManager. See User Device Profiles File Format, for detailed information about the formatting that you must use in the text-based CSV file.


Note An error occurs if any blank lines exist in the CSV file.

Export File Fields for User Device Profile with All Details Option

When you are using the export utility to generate a file that contains all the details for the user device profiles, the export file will have the following format. The example shows the length and type of fields in the export all details file.

The export utility does not generate model specific fields for user device profiles.


Caution Cisco does not recommend editing the file that is generated with the export utility.

Creating a Text-Based CSV File for Cisco Unified CM Assistant Manager-Assistant Associations

Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding Unified CM Assistant managers and assistants, you can create the comma separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas.

To create a CSV text file for Unified CM Assistant manager and assistants, use this procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Open a text editor (such as Notepad) or any application that allows you to export or create a CSV file.

Step 2 Using a separate line for each manager-assistants association, enter the values for each manager-assistant that you want to add to Cisco Unified CallManager. See Managers and Assistants File Formats, for detailed information about the formatting that you must use in the text-based CSV file.


Note An error occurs if any blank lines exist in the CSV file.


You can assign multiple assistants to a manager by entering the user IDs of the manager and assistants separated by a comma at the end of the record.

Step 3 Upload the file to the server that is running the first node database for Cisco Unified CallManager. See the "Uploading a File" section.


Additional Topics

See the "Related Topics" section.

Use this procedure to create a CSV text file for Cisco Catalyst 6000 FXS ports.

Procedure


Step 1 Open a text editor (such as Notepad) or any application that allows you to export or create a CSV file.

Step 2 Using a separate line for each port, enter the values for each port that you want to add to Cisco Unified CallManager. See Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) Ports File Format, for detailed information about the formatting that you must use in the text-based CSV file.


Note An error occurs if any blank lines exist in the CSV file.


Step 3 Upload the CSV file to the first node of Cisco Unified CallManager. See the "Uploading a File" section.

Additional Topics

See the "Related Topics" section.

Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) Ports File Format

The CSV file contains information about each port as a record. Each record specifies the gateway MAC address and port number on that gateway to which you want to add or update the port details.


Note BAT does not add Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) gateways. It only adds or updates ports to an existing gateway.


For the MAC address, enter no MAC address values for an existing Cisco Catalyst 6000 (FXS) gateway. This MAC address uses the last 12 characters in the Gateway Name.

If you provide no values for Partition for any record on the CSV file, the system uses values from the BAT template for these fields.

The following sample format shows the required field length and string types followed by examples of CSV files for Catalyst 6000 (FXS) ports.

MAC Address (Mandatory, 12 characters),Port Number (Mandatory, 2 numerals),Directory Number(Optional, up to 24 numerals and special characters)

Creating a Custom Text-Based CSV Files for Client Matter Codes and Forced Authorized Codes

To create a custom text-based CSV file, perform the following procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 Open a text editor (such as Notepad) or any application that allows you to export or create a CSV file.

Step 2 Using a separate line for each code, create a custom Client Matter Codes (CMC) CSV file or a Forced Authorized Codes (FAC) CSV file, as described in the following steps:

For CMC—Step 3 and Step 5

For FAC— Step 4 and Step 5


Tip Remember that you must create two separate CSV files, one for CMC and one for FAC.


Step 3 To create a CMC CSV file, enter the corresponding information, where x, y represent the following fields:

x—The client matter code (mandatory entry for all additions, updates, and deletions)

y—The description (optional if you update the entry)

For example, you may enter 5555,Acme Toys, where 5555 equals the mandatory client matter code, and Acme Toys equals the description.

Step 4 To create a FAC CSV file, enter the corresponding information, where x,y,z represent the following fields:

x—The forced authorization code (mandatory entry for all additions, updates, and deletions)

y—The authorization code name (optional if you update the entry)

z—The authorization level (optional if you update the entry)

For example, you may enter 1234,John Smith,20, where 1234 equals the forced authorization code, John Smith equals the authorization code name, and 20 equals the authorization level.


Caution If you add new codes at the same time that you update them, make sure that you enter all required information. You can change any part of an existing record, but you must include the code; for example, the forced authorization code or client matter code. Deleting information and leaving it blank does not remove the information from the database; a blank value does not overwrite an existing value in the database, but, updating the value, for example, to Acme Toys, Inc., or John L. Smith from the preceding examples, overwrites the existing value in the database.

Step 5 Upload the CSV file to the first node of Cisco Unified CallManager. See the "Uploading a File" section.

Step 6 Perform one of the following tasks:

If you made additions or updates, insert the file in BAT, as described in "Using BAT to Update the Cisco Unified CallManager Database" section.

If you plan to delete code settings, see the "Deleting Code Settings" section.


Note You cannot perform insert and update operations simultaneously with the same CSV file. You have to create separate CSV files for insert and update.



Additional Topics
