Deleting Managers


When you delete Unified CM Assistant managers, Cisco Unified Communications Manager maintains information on the manager as a user in the directory. For example, if a manager with the user ID, rmartinez, has two assistants with user IDs, dbell and jkent, you can disassociate rmartinez from both assistants by deleting rmartinez as a manager in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. The directory still shows rmartinez as a user.

Deleting Managers from Cisco Unified Communications Manager

You can delete managers with all their manager-assistant associations from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database and LDAP Directory. To access the Delete Managers option, choose Bulk Administration > Managers/Assistants > Delete Managers.

Using a Custom File to Delete Manager Associations

You can create a custom file by using a text editor to locate manager associations that you want to delete.

Before You Begin

1. Create a text file that lists user IDs for managers that you want to delete

2. Put each user ID on a separate line.

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

To delete managers associations by using a custom file, use the following procedure.


Note Do not use the insert or export transaction files that are created with bat.xlt for the delete transaction. Instead, you must create a custom file with details of the manager association records that need to be deleted. Use only this file for the delete transaction. In this custom delete file, you do not need a header, and you can enter values for manager association ID.

Step 1 Choose BAT Administration > Managers/Assistants > Delete Managers > Custom File. The Delete Managers Configuration window displays.

Step 2 In Select managers where field, keep the identifier, User ID.
