Updating User Device Profiles


To update the user device profile (UDP) settings, such as changing or adding the device pool, or calling search space for a group of similar user device profiles, use the Update UDP option.

You can locate the existing UDP records by two methods:

Using Query to Update UDPs

Using a Custom File to Update UDPs

Choosing the Update Parameters

Using Query to Update UDPs

To create a query to locate UDPs to update, use the following procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Update UDP > Query.

The Find and List User Device Profiles To Update window displays.


Note You can update all user device profiles by not specifying a query and clicking Find. Skip to the "Choosing the Update Parameters" section.


Step 2 From the first Find User Device Profiles where drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:

Profile Name

Profile Description

Profile Type

Profile Protocol

Step 3 From the second Find User Device Profiles where drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:

begins with

contains

is exactly

ends with

is empty

is not empty

Step 4 Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.


Tip To find all user device profiles that are registered in the database, click Find without entering any search text.


Step 5 To further define your query and to add multiple filters, check the Search Within Results check box, choose AND or OR from the drop-down box, and repeat Step 2 and Step 3.

Step 6 Click Find.

The details of all the records that match the criteria display in the Find and List User Device Profiles To Update window. You can change the number of items that display on each page by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.

To complete the procedure for updating UDPs, continue to the "Choosing the Update Parameters" section.


Using a Custom File to Update UDPs

To create a custom file to search for UDPs to update, use the following procedure.

Before You Begin

Before you can update a UDP from Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you must perform the following tasks:

Identify the UDPs that you need to update.

Create a text file that lists one of these options on a separate line:

Profile Name

Description

Profile Type

Profile Protocol

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

To update UDPs by using a list of UDPs in a custom file, use the following procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Update UDP > Custom File. The Find and List UDP window displays.

Step 2 From the Update Bulk UDP where drop-down list box, choose the type of custom file that you have created from the following criteria:

Profile Name

Description

Device Type

Device Protocol

Step 3 From the list of custom files, choose the filename of the custom file for this update.

Step 4 Click Find.


Note Do not use the insert or export transaction files that are created with bat.xlt for the update transaction. Instead, create a custom file with details of the UDP records that need to be updated. Use only this file for the update transaction. In this custom update file, you do not need a header, and you can enter values for profile name, description, profile type, or profile protocol.


To complete the procedure for updating UDPs, go to the "Choosing the Update Parameters" section.


Choosing the Update Parameters

After you define the query or custom file to search for UDPs, use this procedure to choose parameters and define values for updating UDPs.

Procedure


Step 1 In the Find and List User Device Profiles To Update window (if you use the Query option) or Find and List UDP window (if you use the Custom File option), click Next.

The Update UDP window shows the type of query that you chose. If you want to change the type of query, click Back.

Step 2 Specify the setting that you want to update for all the records that you have defined in your query or custom file. You can choose multiple parameters to update.

Step 3 Update the required UDP parameters using the field descriptions in Table 41-1.

Step 4 Select the update check box to the left of the field that you want to update. This action tells BAT to overwrite the existing value for the field.


Note Be aware that BAT updates only those fields for which you have selected the update check box.


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

Step 6 Click the Run Immediately radio button to schedule and activate user device profiles immediately or click Run Later to perform the job at a later time.

Step 7 Click Submit to create a job for updating the records. See Table 41-1 for field descriptions.

For more information on jobs, see Chapter 82, "Scheduling Jobs.".

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


Note On the Update UDPs window, certain fields may not display if the search results include devices of multiple types and protocols. Make sure that you have the UDPs of same type and protocol for all the fields to appear.

Field Descriptions for Updating UDPs

Table 41-1 describes the fields that display when you are updating a UDP.

In the BAT user interface, field names that have an asterisk require an entry. Treat fields that do not have an asterisk as optional.

Table 41-1 Field Descriptions for Updating UDPs in BAT 

Field
Description

Description

Enter a description that makes the device easy to recognize. The description can include up to 50 characters in any language, but it cannot include double-quotes ("), percentage sign (%), ampersand (&), backslash (\), or angle brackets (<>).

User Hold MOH Audio Source

Choose the audio source for this group of UDPs or ports.

The user hold audio source plays music when the user puts a call on hold.

This choice determines which culture-dependent attributes exist for this user and which language displays for the user in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user windows and phones.

Phone Button Template

Choose an appropriate phone button template for this profile.

The phone button template determines the configuration of buttons on a phone and identifies which feature (line, speed dial, and so on) is used for each button.

Softkey Template
