Deleting Assistants


When you delete Unified CM Assistant assistants, Cisco Unified Communications Manager maintains information on the assistant as a user in the directory. For example, Assistant thudson is assigned to two managers, hart and dstewart. You can disassociate thudson from both managers by deleting thudson as an assistant in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. The directory still shows thudson as a user.

Using a Custom File to Delete Assistant Associations

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

Before You Begin

1. Create a text file that lists user ID for assistants that you want to delete, putting each on a separate line.

2. 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 assistants 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.

In this custom delete file, you do not need a header, and you can enter values for assistant ID.
