Adding Lines in UDP


You can add lines to a group of existing user device profiles. When you use the template to add new lines, you cannot change phone services or speed dials. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) ignores those fields on the template when you add lines to existing devices.

To add lines to existing phones or user device profiles, use the following procedure.

Before You Begin

You must have a BAT template for this transaction. See the "Adding or Updating Lines in a BAT Template" section on page 3-4.

You must have a CSV data file for this transaction. See the "Using the BAT Spreadsheet to Create User Device Profile CSV Data Files" section on page 35-2 for information.

Adding Lines to Existing UDPs

Use the following procedure to add lines to a group of existing user device profiles.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Add/Update Lines > Add Lines.

The UDP Add Lines Configuration window displays.

Step 2 In the File Name field, choose the CSV data file that you created for this bulk transaction.

Step 3 If you are changing the phone settings for existing phones in the template, check the Update the existing phone button template check box. The user device profile information also gets updated when this check box is checked.

Step 4 In the Template Name field, choose the User Device Profile template to use for this bulk transaction.

Step 5 In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.

Step 6 Click the Run Immediately radio button to insert the phone records immediately or, click Run Later to insert the phone records at a later time.

Step 7 Click Submit to create a job for inserting the phone records.

Step 8 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 82, "Scheduling Jobs."

For information on log files, see "BAT Log Files" section on page 83-3.

Using the BAT Spreadsheet to Add Lines to Existing UDPs

To create the CSV data file by using the BAT spreadsheet for adding lines to existing UDPs, use the following procedure.

For information about installing and using the BAT spreadsheet, see the "Using the BAT Spreadsheet for Gathering Data" section on page 1-8.

Procedure


Step 1 To open the BAT Spreadsheet, locate and double-click the BAT.xlt file.

Step 2 When prompted, click Enable Macros to use the spreadsheet capabilities.

Step 3 To display the fields, click the Add Lines tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

Step 4 Select the appropriate radio button from the following options:

Phones

UDP

Step 5 Enter data for an individual device profile on each line in the spreadsheet. Complete all mandatory fields and any relevant optional fields. Each column heading specifies the length of the field and whether it is required or optional. Table 45-1 describes the fields for adding lines in the BAT spreadsheet.

Step 6 To transfer the data from the BAT Excel spreadsheet into a CSV formatted data file, click Export to BAT Format.

The system saves the file to C:\XLSDataFiles\ or you can use Browse to save your file in another existing folder on your local workstation. The filename is

<tabname>-<timestamp>.txt

where <tabname> represents the type of input file that you created, such as UDPs, and <timestamp> represents the precise date and time that the file was created.


Note If you enter a comma in one of the fields, BAT.xlt encloses that field entry in double quotes when you export to BAT format.

If you enter a blank row in the spreadsheet, the system treats the empty row as the end of the file. The system does not convert data that is entered after a blank line to the BAT format.


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



Note For information on how to read the exported CSV data file, click the link to View Sample File in the Insert Phones window in BAT.

Enter a number between 1 and 34 for the line index of a phone.

Directory Number

Enter a directory number, up to 24 numerals and special characters, for this line.

Display

Enter the text that you want to display on the called party's phone display, such as the user name (John Smith) or phone location (Conference Room 1).

Note If this filed is left blank the system uses the value that is entered in the Directory Number field.

Note The default language specifies English.

Line Text Label

Enter text that identifies this directory number for a line/phone combination.

Note The default language specifies English

Forward Busy External

Enter the directory number to which a call that is coming from an external number is forwarded when the line is in use.

Note This setting applies to any dialable phone number, including an outside destination unless restricted, and to all devices that are using this directory number.

Forward No Answer External

Enter the directory number to which a call that is coming from an external number is forwarded when the phone is not answered.

Note This setting applies to any dialable phone number, including an outside destination unless restricted, and to all devices that are using this directory number.

Forward No Coverage External

Enter the directory number to which a call that is coming from an external number is forwarded when the phone does not have coverage.

Note This setting applies to any dialable phone number, including an outside destination unless restricted, and to all devices that are using this directory number.

Forward Busy Internal

Enter the directory number to which a call that is coming from an internal number is forwarded when the line is in use.

Note This setting applies to any dialable phone number, including an outside destination unless restricted, and to all devices that are using this directory number.

Forward No Answer Internal

Enter the directory number to which a call that is coming from an internal number is forwarded when the phone is not answered.

Party Entrance Tone

Enter one of the following Party Entrance Tone options:

Default—Use the value that you configured in the Party Entrance Tone service parameter.

On—A tone plays on the phone when a basic call changes to a multi-party call; that is, a barge call, cBarge call, ad hoc conference, meet-me conference, or a joined call. In addition, a different tone plays when a party leaves the multi-party call. If the controlling device, that is, the originator of the multi-party call has a built-in bridge, the tone gets played to all parties if you choose On for the controlling device. When the controlling device, for example, the conference controller, is no longer present on the call or if the controlling device cannot play the tone, Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not play the tone even if you choose On.

Off—A tone does not play on the phone when a basic call changes to a multi-party call.

Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Ext Destination

When the parkee is an external party, then the call will be forwarded to the specified destination in the parker's Park Monitoring Forward No Retrieve Destination External parameter. If the Forward No Retrieve Destination External field value is empty, the parkee will be redirected to the parker's line.

Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Int Destination

When the parkee is an internal party, then the call will be forwarded to the specified destination in the parker's Park Monitoring Forward No Retrieve Destination Internal parameter. If the Forward No Retrieve Destination Internal is empty, the parkee will be redirected to the parker's line.

Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Int Voice Mail

This setting uses settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

When this setting is used, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Ext Voice Mail

This setting uses the settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

When this setting is used, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

Choose the calling search space to apply to the directory number.

Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Int CSS

Choose the calling search space to apply to the directory number.

Park Monitor Reversion Timer

This parameter determines the number of seconds that Cisco Unified Communications Manager waits before prompting the user to retrieve a call that the user parked. This timer starts when the user presses the Park softkey on the phone, and a reminder is issued when the timer expires.

Default: 60 seconds

If you configure a non-zero value, this value overrides the value of this parameter set in the Service Parameters window. However, if you configure a value of 0 here, then the value in the Service Parameters window will be used.

Log Missed Calls

This field allows you to turn this feature on or off. Enter `T' to enable Cisco Unified Communications Manager to log missed calls in the call history for that directory number on the phone. Enter `F' to disable this feature.

Call Pickup Group

Enter a Pickup Group Name to specify the call pickup group, which can answer incoming calls to this line by dialing the appropriate pickup group number.
