Exporting Users

When you use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) to export user records, the export utility sorts users according to the organizational hierarchy in the database. T

From the Exports Users Configuration window, if Default User Format is selected from the File Format drop-down list box. the export utility only exports the default user device profile that is associated with a user. You must insert the other user device profiles for that user separately by using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administrator.

Exporting User Records

When you export user records, some users might have a blank PIN because these user records were created prior to Cisco Unified Communications Manager 3.1. If this is the case, you must specify a default PIN before reinserting the user records in the BAT user interface.
