User device profile deletions

User device profile deletions

This chapter provides information to delete a group of user device profiles (UDPs) from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. You can locate existing phone records that you want to delete using either a query search or a custom file.

Delete UDP using query

To locate the UDP records that you want to delete from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, you can define a query filter.

Procedure
    Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Delete User Device Profiles > Query. The Find and List Device Profiles To Delete window displays.
    Step 2   From the Find drop-down list box, choose one of the following options:
    • User
    • Autogenerated
    • All
    Step 3   From the first Device Profiles where drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:
    • Profile Name
    • Description
    • Device Type
    Step 4   From the second 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 5   Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.
    Tip   

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

    Step 6   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 5.
    Step 7   Click Find.

    A list of discovered templates displays by:

    • Device Profile Name
    • Description
    • Device Type
    • Profile Type
    Step 8   In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.
    Step 9   Choose a delete method. Do one of the following:
    1. Click Run Immediately to delete UDP records immediately.
    2. Click Run Later to delete UDP records at a later time.
    Step 10   Click Submit to create a job for deleting the phone records. Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and/or activate this job.
    Caution   

    If you do not enter any information in the query text box, the system deletes all UDP records. Because the delete action is final, you cannot retrieve deleted records.

    Delete UDP using custom file

    You can create a custom file of UDPs that you want to delete using a text editor. You can have device profile name, device profile description, and directory number in the same custom file, but you cannot have directory numbers in the same file. You need to create separate files—one file that contains the device names and MAC addresses and another file that contains the directory numbers.


    Note


    You cannot delete UDPs with shared lines by using a custom file.



    Note


    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 UDP records that need to be deleted. Use only this file for the delete transaction.


    Before You Begin
    1. Create a text file that lists one of these details for the UDPs that you want to delete:
      • Profile names
      • Profile description
      • Directory numbers

      Note


      The custom file does not need a header, and you can enter values for name, description, or directory number. Put each item on a separate line in the text file.


    2. Upload the custom files to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server first node.
    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Delete User Device Profiles > Custom File. The Delete User Device Profiles Configuration window displays.
      Step 2   In the Delete drop-down list box choose one of the following options:
      • User
      • Autogenerated
      • All
      Step 3   In the Device Profiles where drop-down list box, choose the type of custom file that you have created from one of the following criteria:
      • Profile Name
      • Profile Description
      • Directory Number
      Step 4   In the list of custom files, choose the filename of the custom file for this delete, then click Find. A list of UDPs matching your search criteria displays.
      Step 5   Click Submit to create a job to delete the UDPs.

      Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and/or activate this job.
