Using a Custom File to Delete UDPs

You can create a custom file of UDPs that you want to delete by using a text editor. You can have device profile name, device profile description, and directory number in the same custom file, but you cannot have directory numbers in the same file. You need to create separate files—one file that contains the device names and MAC addresses and another file that contains the directory numbers.


Note You cannot delete UDPs with shared lines by using a custom file.


Before You Begin

1. Create a text file that lists one of these details for the UDPs that you want to delete:

Profile names

Profile description

Directory numbers

2. Put each item on a separate line in the text file.

3. Upload the custom files to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server first node. See "Uploading a File" section on page 2-3.

To delete UDPs that are listed in a custom file, use the following procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Delete User Device Profiles > Custom File.

The Delete User Device Profiles Configuration window displays.

Step 2 In the Delete drop-down list box choose one of the following options:

User

Autogenerated

All

Step 3 In the Device Profiles where drop-down list box, choose the type of custom file that you have created from one of the following criteria:

Profile Name

Profile Description

Directory Number

Step 4 In the list of custom files, choose the filename of the custom file for this delete.

Step 5 Click Find.

Step 6 A list of UDPs matching your search criteria displays.

Step 7 Click Submit to create a job to delete the UDPs.

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 Chapter 63, "Scheduling Jobs."

For information on log files, see "BAT Log Files" section on page 64-3.
