UDP line additions

UDP line additions

This chapter provides information to add lines to a group of existing user device profiles. When you use the BAT template to add new lines, you cannot change phone services or speed dials. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) ignores those fields in the BAT template when you add lines to existing devices.

Add lines to existing UDPs

You can to add lines to a group of existing user device profiles using a CSV data file. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) ignores changes to phone services and speed dials when you add lines to existing devices.

Before You Begin
  • You must have a BAT template for this transaction.
  • You must have a CSV data file for this transaction.
Procedure
    Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Add/Update Lines > Add Lines. The UDP Add Lines Configuration window displays.
    Step 2   In the File Name field, choose the CSV data file that you created for this bulk transaction.
    Step 3   If you are changing the phone settings for existing phones in the template, check the Update the existing phone button template check box. The user device profile information also gets updated when this check box is checked.
    Step 4   In the Template Name field, choose the User Device Profile template to use for this bulk transaction.
    Step 5   In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.
    Step 6   Choose an insert method. Do one of the following:
    1. Click Run Immediately to insert the phone records immediately.
    2. Click Run Later to insert the phone records at a later time.
    Step 7   Click Submit to create a job for inserting the phone records. Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and/or activate this job.

    Add lines to existing UDPs using BAT spreadsheet

    Use the BAT spreadsheet to create the CSV data file for adding lines to existing UDPs. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) ignores changes to phone services and speed dial fields in the template when you add lines to existing devices.

    After you have finished editing the fields in the BAT spreadsheet, you can export the content to a CSV formatted data file. A default filename is assigned to the exported CSV formatted data file:

    <tabname>-<timestamp>.txt

    where <tabname> represents the type of input file that you created, such as UDPs, and <timestamp> represents the precise date and time that the file was created.


    Note


    If you enter a comma in one of the fields, BAT.xlt encloses that field entry in double quotes when you export to BAT format.

    If you enter a blank row in the spreadsheet, the system treats the empty row as the end of the file. The system does not convert data that is entered after a blank line to the BAT format.


    Before You Begin
    • You must have a BAT template for this transaction.
    • You must have a CSV data file for this transaction.
    Procedure
      Step 1   To open the BAT Spreadsheet, locate and double-click the BAT.xlt file.
      Step 2   When prompted, click Enable Macros to use the spreadsheet capabilities.
      Step 3   To display the fields, click the Add Lines tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet.
      Step 4   Select the appropriate radio button from the following options:
      • Phones
      • UDP
      Step 5   Enter data for an individual device profile on each line in the spreadsheet. Complete all mandatory fields and any relevant optional fields. Each column heading specifies the length of the field and whether it is required or optional. See Table 1 for field descriptions.
      Step 6   To transfer the data from the BAT Excel spreadsheet into a CSV formatted data file, click Export to BAT Format.
      Tip   

      For information on how to read the exported CSV data file, click the link to View Sample File in the Insert Phones window in BAT.

      The system saves the file using the default name <tabname>-<timestamp>.txt to C:\XLSDataFiles\ or you can use Browse to save your file in another existing folder on your local workstation.

      What to Do Next

      Upload the CSV file to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Server first node.

      Party Entrance Tone

      Enter one of the following Party Entrance Tone options:

      • Default—Use the value that you configured in the Party Entrance Tone service parameter.
      • On—A tone plays on the phone when a basic call changes to a multi-party call; that is, a barge call, cBarge call, ad hoc conference, meet-me conference, or a joined call. In addition, a different tone plays when a party leaves the multi-party call. If the controlling device, that is, the originator of the multi-party call has a built-in bridge, the tone gets played to all parties if you choose On for the controlling device. When the controlling device, for example, the conference controller, is no longer present on the call or if the controlling device cannot play the tone, Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not play the tone even if you choose On.
      • Off—A tone does not play on the phone when a basic call changes to a multi-party call.

      Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Ext Destination

      When the parkee is an external party, then the call will be forwarded to the specified destination in the parker's Park Monitoring Forward No Retrieve Destination External parameter. If the Forward No Retrieve Destination External field value is empty, the parkee will be redirected to the parker's line.

      Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Int Destination

      When the parkee is an internal party, then the call will be forwarded to the specified destination in the parker's Park Monitoring Forward No Retrieve Destination Internal parameter. If the Forward No Retrieve Destination Internal is empty, the parkee will be redirected to the parker's line.

      Park Monitor Forward No Retrieve Int Voice Mail

      This setting uses settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

      When this setting is used, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the settings in the Destination box and Calling Search Space.

      Note   

      Within Cisco Unified CM Administration, you can enter directory URIs with embedded double quotes or commas. However, when you use Bulk Administration to import a csv file that contains directory URIs with embedded double quotes and commas, you must use enclose the entire directory URI in double quotes and escape the embedded double quotes with a double quote. For example, the Jared, "Jerry",Smith@test.com directory URI must be input as "Jared,""Jerry"",Smith@test.com" in the csv file.

      URI (1-5) Route Partition on Directory Number

      Enter the partition on which the directory URI belongs. If you do not want to restrict access to the directory URI, leave the field blank.
