Line Appearance


A line appearance is the linkage of a line to a device. The end user is now linked to a line appearance rather than a line.

Detailed presence information about relationships such as shared lines were not provided to CUPS earlier, which lead to inaccurate or incomplete presence state. The Line Appearancces feature provides detailed information when there are multiple line appearances associated with a user.

You can use the Line Appearance menu in BAT to export and update line appearances:
