Text-based CSV files

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) uses data that is entered in a comma-separated values (CSV) file format to provide information for insert transactions to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database on the first node server. By using the CSV data format, you can build a textual file that contains data records in a tabular format.

You can create a CSV data file by using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad. You must use a separate line to enter data for each record. Separate each data field with a comma and include comma separators for blank fields. Enter data on every line in the data file because an error occurs during the insert transaction if you enter a blank line in a CSV file.

When you insert the data records to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, BAT accesses a set of designated folders that reside on the server that is running the first node database. For BAT to access the appropriate CSV data file for the transaction, you must upload the CSV data file to the first node database server of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Note


Cisco recommends uploading Text-Based CSV files saved in the UTF-8 format only, as characters other than ASCII characters can be stored in this format. Text-Based CSV files saved in formats other than UTF-8 may render garbled when downloaded from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

Create text-based CSV file for Phones

You can create a CSV text file for phones, IP telephony devices, and user combinations using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad.

Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding phones, you can create the comma-separated values (CSV) file using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas. There are different CSV data file formats for different phone types. You must use the appropriate phone file format for the CSV text file.


Note


Cisco recommends uploading Text-Based CSV files saved in the UTF-8 format only, as characters other than ASCII characters can be stored in this format. Text-Based CSV files saved in formats other than UTF-8 may render garbled when downloaded from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Procedure
    Step 1   Open a text editor or any application that allows you to export or create a text-based CSV file.
    Step 2   Use a separate line to enter the values for each phone, IP telephony device, or user combination that you want to add to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. You must create separate CSV files for each type of device. Keep in mind the following rules when you create the CSV data file.
    • Always include comma separators, even if a field is blank.
    • Specify the user ID if the phone is to be associated to a user.
    • Directory Number fields are optional only when you are creating the CSV file for use with a BAT template that has no lines. If lines are configured on the BAT phone template, you must supply directory numbers in the CSV file for each device.
    • An error occurs when you insert a CSV file with blank lines.
    • While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.

    What to Do Next

    Upload the CSV file to the first node of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

    Note


    If you use a comma or double quotes as part of the value in one of the fields, you must enclose the entire text value with double quotation marks to designate it as a single value.

    For example, if you entered John, Bill as a text value, then you must enter the value as "John,Bill".

    If you entered a double quote in a value, then you must replace the double quote with two consecutive double quotes and enclose the value with double quotes. For example you must enter John "Chief as “John""Chief".


    Export the fields for all phone details option

    When you are using the export utility to generate a file that containing all the details for the phone records, the export file has the following format.


    Caution


    Cisco does not recommend editing the file that is generated with the export utility. The system dynamically generates fields, such as Logout time and Login time, that must not be edited at all. You must ensure that the login user ID and Product Specific XML fields are accurate for them to work properly, and you must not edit them. Use BAT to update the product specific configurations.

    Create text-based CSV user file

    You can create a CSV text file for users using a text editor, such as such as Microsoft Notepad.

    Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding users, you can create the comma-separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas. You must use the user file format for the user CSV text file.


    Note


    Cisco recommends uploading Text-Based CSV files saved in the UTF-8 format only, as characters other than ASCII characters can be stored in this format. Text-Based CSV files saved in formats other than UTF-8 may render garbled when downloaded from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


    Procedure
      Step 1   Open a text editor or any application that allows you to export or create a text-based CSV file.
      Step 2   Using a separate line for each user, enter the values for each user that you want to add to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

      You can associate any number of existing devices to a new user by entering the device name of all the devices separated by a comma at the end of the record.

      You can associate a directory number to a user, even if that user does not control any device.

      Note   

      An error occurs if any blank lines exist in the CSV file.

      Step 3   While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.

      What to Do Next

      Upload the file to first node of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

      User file format


      Tip


      You must specify PIN and Password values, either on the CSV file or when using BAT for file insertion. If you want to apply individual PINs or passwords for each user or group of users, specify the PIN and password information in the CSV file. If you want to use a default PIN and password that all users can use, do not specify PIN or password values in the CSV file and instead provide this information when you use BAT to insert the CSV file in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


      The following sample format and examples show the fields, field length, and whether the field is optional or mandatory for a text-based CSV file for users.

      First Name (Optional, up to 64 characters), Last Name (Mandatory, 1 to 64 characters), User ID(Mandatory, up to 128 characters), Manager User ID (Optional, up to 128 characters, must use existing ID in global directory), Department (Optional, up to 64 characters), PIN (Optional, up to 128 numerals), Default Profile (Optional, up to 50 characters), User Locale (Optional, up to 50 characters), Telephone Number (Optional, up to 64 numerals), Primary Extension (Optional, up to 50 numerals), Associated PC (Optional, up to 50 characters), ICD Extension (Optional, up to 50 numerals), Mail ID (Optional, up to 255 characters), Presence Group (Optional, up to 50 characters), Subscribe Calling Search Space (Optional, up to 50 characters).

      Example 3

      When you want to complete only the mandatory fields and associate the user to a phone, use this format:

      Smith,johns,,,,,,,SEP1231123245AB,

      Example 4

      A user can control more than one device. You can add device names for additional devices at the end of the record.

      • If the user controls only one device, use this format:
        John,Smith,johns,abc123de,karend,0012055,9989,johns profile,English
        United States,SEP1231123245AB,9725557154

      Update users file format

      Use a text editor to create the CSV text file for updating users. Upload the file to first node server.

      When you are updating a record, you need to supply all mandatory fields for a file. If you have stored values in the optional fields, and you update a record with blank optional fields, you will reset the values to blank. It is possible for you to retain previously stored values during update.

      The following sample format shows the field length and string types followed by examples of CSV files for updating users.

      User ID (Mandatory, 1 to 128 characters), Password (Optional, up to 128 characters), Manager (Optional, up to 128 characters, must use existing ID in global directory), Department (Optional, up to 64 characters), PIN (Optional, up to 128 numerals), Default Profile (Optional, up to 50 characters), User Locale (Optional, up to 50 characters), Telephone Number (Optional, up to 64 numerals), Primary Extension (Optional, up to 50 numerals), Associated PC (Optional, up to 50 characters), ICD Extension (Optional, up to 50 numerals), Mail ID (Optional, up to 255 characters).

        Export file fields for user device profile with all details option

        When you are using the export utility to generate a file that contains all the details for the user device profiles, the export file will have the following format. The example shows the length and type of fields in the export all details file.

        The export utility does not generate model-specific fields for user device profiles.


        Caution


        Cisco does not recommend editing the file that is generated with the export utility. The system dynamically generates some fields, such as Logout time and Login time, that must not be edited at all. You must ensure that the login user ID and Product Specific XML fields are accurate for them to work properly, and you must not edit them. Use BAT to update the product-specific configurations.

        Create text-based CSV file for Cisco Unified CM assistant manager-assistant associations

        You can create a CSV text file for Unified CM Assistant manager and assistants using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad.

        Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding Unified CM Assistant managers and assistants, you can create the comma-separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas. You must use the manager and assistants file format for the CSV text file.


        Note


        Cisco recommends uploading Text-Based CSV files saved in the UTF-8 format only, as characters other than ASCII characters can be stored in this format. Text-Based CSV files saved in formats other than UTF-8 may render garbled when downloaded from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


        Procedure
          Step 1   Open a text editor or any application that allows you to export or create a text-based CSV file.
          Step 2   Using a separate line for each manager-assistants association, enter the values for each manager-assistant that you want to add to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
          Note   

          An error occurs if any blank lines exist in the CSV file.

          You can assign multiple assistants to a manager by entering the user IDs of the manager and assistants separated by a comma at the end of the record.

          Step 3   While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.


          What to Do Next

          Upload the CSV file to the first node server for Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                  Create custom text-based CSV files for Client Matter Codes and Forced Authorized Codes

                  You can create a custom text-based CSV file using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad.

                  Procedure
                    Step 1   Open a text editor or any application that allows you to export or create a text-based CSV file.
                    Step 2   Using a separate line for each code, create a custom Client Matter Codes (CMC) CSV file or a Forced Authorized Codes (FAC) CSV file, as described in the following steps:
                    • For CMC—Step 3 and Step 4
                    • For FAC— Step 3 and Step 4
                    Tip   

                    Remember that you must create two separate CSV files, one for CMC and one for FAC.

                    Step 3   To create a CMC CSV file, enter the corresponding information, where x, y represent the following fields:
                    • x—The client matter code (mandatory entry for all additions, updates, and deletions)
                    • y—The description (optional if you update the entry)

                    For example, you may enter 5555,Acme Toys, where 5555 equals the mandatory client matter code, and Acme Toys equals the description.

                    Step 4   To create a FAC CSV file, enter the corresponding information, where x,y,z represent the following fields:
                    • x—The forced authorization code (mandatory entry for all additions, updates, and deletions)
                    • y—The authorization code name (optional if you update the entry)
                    • z—The authorization level (optional if you update the entry)

                    For example, you may enter 1234,John Smith,20, where 1234 equals the forced authorization code, John Smith equals the authorization code name, and 20 equals the authorization level.

                    Caution   

                    If you add new codes at the same time that you update them, make sure that you enter all required information. You can change any part of an existing record, but you must include the code; for example, the forced authorization code or client matter code. Deleting information and leaving it blank does not remove the information from the database; a blank value does not overwrite an existing value in the database, but, updating the value, for example, to Acme Toys, Inc., or John L. Smith from the preceding examples, overwrites the existing value in the database.

                    Step 5   Upload the CSV file to the first node of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                    While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.

                    Note   

                    Cisco recommends uploading Text-Based CSV files saved in the UTF-8 format only, as characters other than ASCII characters can be stored in this format. Text-Based CSV files saved in formats other than UTF-8 may render garbled when downloaded from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                    Step 6   Perform one of the following tasks:
                    • If you made additions or updates, insert the file in the CUCM database using BAT.
                    • You can delete code settings.
                    Note   

                    You cannot perform insert and update operations simultaneously with the same CSV file. You have to create separate CSV files for insert and update.


                    CMC file format

                    The following sample format and examples show the fields, field length, and whether the field is optional or mandatory for a text-based CSV file for client matter codes.

                    Client Matter Code(Mandatory, 1 to 16 numerals),Description(Optional, 1 to 50 Characters)

                    Update CMC file format

                    Use a text editor to create the CSV text file for updating client matter codes.

                    The following sample format shows the field length and string types followed by examples of CSV files for updating client matter codes.

                    Client Matter Code(Mandatory, 1 to 16 numerals),Description(Optional, 1 to 50 Characters)

                    Sample

                    1234567890123456,Marketing

                    Example

                    If the description is empty, use this format:

                    Example

                    Values you do not want to update must still include the delimiter. If only the Authorization Code Name has to be updated use the following format:

                    1234567890123456,John FAC, 

                    If only the Authorization level has to be updated, use the following format:

                    1234567890123456,John FAC,220

                    Create text-based CSV file for call pickup groups

                    You can create a custom text-based CSV file for call pickup groups using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad.

                    Procedure
                      Step 1   Open a text editor or any application that allows you to export or create a text-based CSV file.

                      Use a separate line for each call pickup group name.

                      Step 2   Enter the Pickup Group Name, Pickup Group Number, Partition, Other Pickup Group Name-Member1... Other Pickup Group Name-Member10.

                      For example, you may enter Marketing,7815,Part1,Marketing,Managers,Training, where Marketing is the mandatory pickup group name, 7815 is the mandatory pickup group number. Part1 is the partition, Marketing, Managers, and Training are the other pickup group names that are associated to the pickup group Marketing.

                      Caution   

                      Deleting information and leaving it blank does not remove the information from the database; a blank value does not overwrite an existing value in the database, but updating the value, for example, to Sales from Marketing, from the preceding examples, overwrites the existing value in the database.

                      Step 3   Upload the CSV file to the first node of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                      While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.

                      Sample

                      Marketing,7815,Part1,Marketing,Managers,Training

                      Example

                      Optional values that you do not want to specify at this time must still include the delimiter (a comma) except for Other Pickup Group members.

                      If the Partition for a Pickup Group is blank, use the following format:

                      Marketing,7815, 
                      Related References

                      Update CPG file format

                      Use a text editor to create the CSV text file for updating the call pickup group.

                      The following sample format shows the field length and string types followed by examples of CSV files for updating call pickup groups.

                      Pickup Group Name(Mandatory, 1 to 50 characters),Pickup Group Number(Mandatory, 1 to 24 numerals),Partition(Optional, 1 to 50 Characters),Other Pickup Group Name-Member1... Other Pickup Group Name-Member10(Optional, 1 to 50 Characters)

                      Create text-based CSV file for remote destination profile

                      Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are adding Remote Destination Profiles (RDPs), you can create the comma-separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values separated by commas. You can use a text editor such as Microsoft Notepad.


                      Note


                      Cisco recommends uploading Text-Based CSV files saved in the UTF-8 format only, as characters other than ASCII characters can be stored in this format.

                        Step 2   Use a separate line to enter the values for each RDP that you want to add to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Keep in mind the following rules when you create the CSV data file.
                        • Always include comma separators, even if a field is blank.
                        • Specify the user ID if the RDP is to be associated to a user.
                        • Consider Directory Number fields as optional only when you are creating the CSV file for use with a BAT template that has no lines. If lines are configured on the BAT RDP template, you must supply directory numbers in the CSV file for each RDP.
                        • An error occurs when you insert a CSV file with blank lines.
                        Step 3   While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.

                                  Step 1   Open a text editor or any application that allows you to export or create a text-based CSV file.
                                  Step 2   Use a separate line to enter the values for each IME Exclusion Group Configuration that you want to add. Keep in mind the following rules when you create the CSV data file.
                                  • Always include comma separators, even if a field is blank.
                                  • An error occurs when you insert a CSV file with blank lines.
                                  Step 3   While saving your CSV file, choose to save it as UTF-8 encoded. In Notepad, you can select encoding as UTF-8 from the Encoding dropdown.

                                  Instead of using the BAT spreadsheet for data input when you are inserting Fallback Profile Configuration, you can create the comma-separated values (CSV) file by using lines of ASCII text with values that are separated by commas. You can use a text editor such as Microsoft Notepad.
