User device profile file format

User device profile file format

This chapter provides information about configuring user device profile file formats for CSV data files that you create using a text editor.

User device profile file format setup

You can copy, modify, and delete user device profile file formats for CSV data files that you create using a text editor.

When you use a text editor to create your CSV data file, you must use a file format to identify the device and line fields within the CSV data file. You have these options for the file format:

  • Default User Device Profile—Contains a predetermined set of user device profile device and line fields.
  • Simple User Device Profile—Contains basic device and line fields for user device profiles.
  • Customized—Contains device and line fields that you choose and order yourself.

Before creating the CSV file in the text editor, you need to choose an existing file format or create a new file format. You can then enter the values as specified in the file format in the text-based CSV data file.

Find UDP file format

Use BAT to locate a user device profile file format.

Procedure
    Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > UDP File Format > Create UDP File Format. The Find and List UDP File Formats window displays.
    Step 2   From the Find UDP File Format where Format Name drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:
    • begins with
    • contains

    Tip   

    To find all UDP templates that are registered in the database, click Find without entering any search text.

    A list of discovered templates displays by name of the file format.
    Step 4   From the list of records, click the file format name that matches your search criteria. The UDP File Format Configuration window displays.

    Create UDP file format

    You can create a UDP file format for the text-based CSV data file.

    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Create UDP File Format. The Create UDP File Format Configuration window displays.
      Step 2   Click Add new. The Create UDP File Format Configuration window displays.
      Step 3   In the UDP File Format Name field, enter a name for this customized format.
      Step 4   Under Device Fields, choose the device field names that you want to define for each user device profile.

      Click a device field name in the Device Field box and click the arrow to move the field to the Selected Device Fields Order box.

      Note   

      A CSV data file must include Device Profile Name, and Description; therefore, these fields always remain selected.

      Tip   

      You can select several random field names in the list by holding down the Ctrl key, then clicking the arrow to select them together. You can select a range of items by using the Shift key.

      You can change the order of the items in the Selected Line Fields and Selected Device Fields boxes. Select an item and then use the up arrow to move the field closer to the beginning of the list or use the down arrow to move it to the end of the list.

      Step 6   Click Intercom DN field names in the Intercom DN Field box and click the arrow to move the fields to the Selected Intercom DN Fields Order box.
      Step 7   Enter the maximum number of lines, speed dials, IP Phone Services, and IP Phone Service Parameters, you want to include in the CSV file, in their corresponding text boxes.
      Note   

      You can enter zero for maximum number of speed dials, IP Phone Services, and IP Phone Service Parameters, if you do not want to include them in the CSV file. But, the maximum number of lines should not be zero if line fields are chosen in the file format.

      Step 8   To save your customized file format, click Save. The name of the file format displays in the UDP File Format Query window.
