Assistant deletions

Assistant deletions

This chapter provides information to delete assistants 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.

Assistant deletions from Cisco Unified Communications Manager

When you delete Unified CM Assistant assistants from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database and LDAP Directory, 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.

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

    Delete assistant associations using custom file

    You can delete assistants 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 assistant 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 assistant 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 assistants that you want to delete. Make sure you put each user ID on a separate line.

      Note


      The custom delete CSV data file does not need a header and you can enter values for assistants association IDs.


    2. Upload the custom file to the first node of Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.
    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose BAT Administration > Managers/Assistants > Delete Assistants > Custom File. The Delete Assistants Configuration window displays.
      Step 2   In Select Assistants where field, keep the identifier, User ID.
      Step 3   In the second field, in Custom File drop-down list box, choose the name of the custom file that you created for this transaction.
      Step 4   Click Find. The list of discovered assistants displays.
      Step 5   In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.
      Step 6   Choose a delete method. Do one of the following:
      1. Click Run Immediately to delete assistants immediately.
