Manager deletions

Manager deletions

This chapter provides information to delete managers with all their manager-assistant associations from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database and LDAP Directory. You can use either a query search or a custom file to locate existing records to delete.

Manager deletions from Cisco Unified Communications Manager

When you delete Unified CM Assistant managers with all their manager-assistant associations from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database and LDAP Directory, 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.

You can use either a query search or a custom file to locate existing records to delete.

    Delete manager associations using custom file

    You can delete managers associations from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database using a custom file that you create using a text-editor. Use the custom file to locate manager associations that you want to delete.

    Attention:

    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.

    Before You Begin
    1. Create a custom text-based CSV data file that lists user IDs for managers that you want to delete. Make sure you put each user ID on a separate line.
