User device profile updates

User device profile updates

This chapter provides information 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. You can locate the existing UDP records that you want to update using either a query search or a custom file.

Update UDPs using query

You can create a query to locate UDPs to update.

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 Choose update parameters.

    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.

    What to Do Next

    To complete the procedure for updating UDPs, proceed to choose the update parameters.

    Update UDPs using custom file

    You can update UDPs using a list of UDPs in a custom file. Use the custom file to search for UDPs in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database that you want to update.

    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.
    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.


      What to Do Next

      To complete the procedure for updating UDPs, proceed to choose the update parameters.

      Choose 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   Do one of the following:
        1. Click Next in the Find and List User Device Profiles To Update window if you used the Query option to locate UDPs to update.
        2. Click Next in the Find and List UDP window if you used the Custom File option to locate UDPs to update.
        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. See Table 1 for field descriptions.
        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   

        The 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   Choose an activation method. Do one of the following:
        1. Click Run Immediately to schedule and activate user device profiles immediately.
        2. Click Run Later to schedule and activate user device profiles at a later time.
        Step 7   Click Submit to create a job for updating the records.
        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.

        Update UDP field descriptions

        The following table 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 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 (<>).
