Phone template

Phone template

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) gives the administrator a fast and efficient way to add, update, or delete large numbers of phones in batches, rather than performing individual updates through Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You can use BAT to work with the following types of phones:

  • Cisco Unified IP Phones (all models)
  • CTI ports
  • H.323 clients

This chapter provides information about how to use BAT to work with phone templates and other IP telephony devices.

Add phones to database

When you use BAT to add phones and other IP telephony devices in bulk to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, you can add multiple lines, services, and speed dials for each phone. You can also add CTI ports and H.323 clients.

You have two options for creating a CSV data file for phones:
  • Use the BAT spreadsheet (BAT.xlt) and export the data to the CSV format.
  • Use a text editor to create a text file in CSV format (for experienced users).
Procedure
    Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > Phones > Phone Template.

    The Find and List Phone Templates window displays.

    Step 2   Create a CSV data file to insert the phone templates.

    Perform one of the following options:

    1. Create a CSV data file using the BAT spreadsheet.
    2. Create a CSV data file using a text editor as follows:
      1. Choose Bulk Administration > Phones > Phone File Format > Create File Format. The Find and List Phone File Formats window displays.
      2. Use a text editor and create the CSV data file for phones that follows the file format that you want to use.
      3. Choose Bulk Administration > Phones > Phone File Format > Add File Format to associate the text-based file format with the CSV data file.
    Step 3   Choose Bulk Administration > Phones > Validate Phones.

    The Validate Phones window displays.

    Step 4   Choose Bulk Administration > phones > Insert phones to insert phone records into the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.

    The Insert phones window displays.


    BAT phone templates

    Use BAT phone templates to define the common phone attributes to add a group of new phones. Prior to creating the template, make sure phone settings such as device pool, location, calling search space, button template and softkey templates have already been configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You cannot create new settings in BAT.

    Find BAT phone template

    Because you might have several phone templates, Cisco Unified Communications Manager lets you locate specific phone templates on the basis of criteria that you define.

      Step 5   From the list of records, click the device name that matches your search criteria. The window displays the phone template that you choose.

      Create new BAT phone template

      You can create new BAT phone templates. After you create a phone template, you can add lines, services, and speed dials.

      Procedure
        Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > Phones > Phone Template.

        The Find and List Phone Templates window displays.

        Step 2   Click Add New. The Add a New Phone Template window displays.
        Step 3   From the Phone Type drop-down list box, choose the phone model for which you are creating the template. Click Next.
        Step 4   From the Select the Device Protocol drop-down list box, choose the device protocol. Click Next.

        The Phone Template Configuration window displays with fields and default entries for the chosen device type.

        Step 5   In the Template Name field, enter a name for the template. The name can contain up to 50 alphanumeric characters.

        Example:Sales_7975
        Step 6   In the Device Information area, enter the phone settings that this batch has in common. See Table 1 for more information. Some phone models and device types do not have all the attributes that the table lists.
        Step 7   After you have entered all the settings for this BAT phone template, click Save.

        When the status indicates that the transaction has completed, you can add line attributes.

        Add or update phone lines in BAT template

        You can add one or more lines to the BAT template or to update existing lines. The button template in use for the BAT template determines the number of lines that you can add or update. You can create a master phone template that has multiple lines. Then, you can use the master template to add phones with a single line or up to the number of lines in the master template. All phones or user device profiles in this batch will use the settings that you choose.

        Cisco recommends that you use alphanumeric characters for the line template value, so if numbers are given, a chance exists of this conflicting with an actual directory number. This would also avoid conflicts with features such as Call Pickup group number and Call Park number.

        The maximum number of lines that display for a BAT template depends on the model and button template that you chose when you created the BAT phone template. For some Cisco Unified IP Phone models, you can also add Cisco Unified IP Phone services and speed dials to the template.

        Procedure
          Step 1   Find the Phone Template to which you want to add the line.

                          Location

                          Choose the appropriate location for this group of IP phones or ports.

                          The location specifies the total bandwidth that is available for calls to and from this location. A location setting of None means that the locations feature does not keep track of the bandwidth that this Cisco IP Phone consumes.

                          AAR Group

                          Choose the automated alternate routing (AAR) group for this device. The AAR group provides the prefix digits that are used to route calls that are otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth.

                          Set AAR Group to <None> to prevent rerouting blocked calls.

                          User Locale

                          Choose the country and language set that you want to associate with this group of IP phones.

                          This choice determines which cultural-dependent attributes exist for this user and which language displays for the user in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user windows and phones.

                          Network Locale

                          Choose the network locale that you want to associate with this group of phones.

                          The Network Locale comprises a set of tones and cadences that Cisco gateways and phones use when they communicate with the PSTN and other networks in a specific geographical area.

                          Built In Bridge

                          Enable or disable the built-in conference bridge for the barge feature by using the Built In Bridge drop-down list box (choose On, Off, or Default).

                          • Enabled—This setting accepts a personalized background image file, which is used for the phone screen; it accepts a preview image file for temporary display; and it accepts a personalized tone file, so the default ring tone can be personalized.
                          • Default—Use the phone personalization setting that is in the Common Phone Profile.

                          Services Provisioning

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the Services Provisioning setting that you want to use from the following values:

                          • Internal
                          • External URLs
                          • Both
                          • Default: Internal

                          This parameter controls whether the phone uses the services provisioned from the configuration file (Internal), services received from the Services URLs (External URLs), or both. The External URLs option provides backward compatibility with third party provisioning servers. The Both option allows users to subscribe to the services specified in the configuration file while also appending services from an external provisioning server.

                          This is a required field.

                          Phone Load Name

                          • Barge—This setting enables the Singe Button Barge feature.
                          • cBarge—This setting enables the Single Button cBarge feature.
                          • Default—This setting uses the Single Button Barge/cBarge setting that is in the service parameter.
                            Tip    For more configuration information, refer to Barge and Privacy in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

                          Join Across Lines

                          From the drop-down list box, enable or disable the Join Across Lines feature for this device or choose Default to use the service parameter setting.

                          • Off—This setting disables the Join Across Lines feature.
                          • On—This setting enables the Join Across Lines feature.
                          • Default—Uses the Join Across Lines setting that is in the service parameter.

                          Use Trusted Relay Point

                          From the drop-down list box, enable or disable whether Cisco Unified Communications Manager inserts a trusted relay point (TRP) device with this media endpoint. Choose one of the following values:

                          • Default—If you choose this value, the device uses the Use Trusted Relay Point setting from the common device configuration with which this device associates.
                          • Off—Choose this value to disable the use of a TRP with this device. This setting overrides the Use Trusted Relay Point setting in the common device configuration with which this device associates.
                          • On—Choose this value to enable the use of a TRP with this device. This setting overrides the Use Trusted Relay Point setting in the common device configuration with which this device associates.

                          A Trusted Relay Point (TRP) device designates an MTP or transcoder device that is labeled as Trusted Relay Point.

                          Cisco Unified Communications Manager places the TRP closest to the associated endpoint device if more than one resource is needed for the endpoint (for example, a transcoder or RSVPAgent).

                          If both TRP and MTP are required for the endpoint, TRP gets used as the required MTP.

                          Tip    See TRP Insertion Requirements in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide for details of call behavior.

                          BLF Audible Alert Setting (Phone Idle)

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the BLF Audible Alert setting that you want to use from the following values:

                          • On
                          • Off
                          • Default

                          This parameter provides an audible alert in addition to a visual alert on a phone that is currently idle when a call comes in to one of the lines that is monitored by way of a busy line field (BLF) button.

                          This is a required field.

                          BLF Audible Alert Setting (Phone Busy)

                          This parameter for this required field provides an audible alert in addition to a visual alert on a phone that is currently in use when a call comes in to one of the lines that is monitored by way of a busy line field (BLF) button.

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the BLF Audible Alert setting that you want to use from the following values:

                          • On
                          • Off
                          • Default

                          Always Use Prime Line

                          From the drop-down list box, choose one of the following options:

                          • Off—When the phone is idle and receives a call on any line, the phone user answers the call from the line on which the call is received.
                          • On—When the phone is idle (off-hook) and receives a call on any line, the primary line gets chosen for the call. Calls on other lines continue to ring, and the phone user must select those other lines to answer these calls.
                          • Default Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the configuration from the Always Use Prime Line service parameter, which supports the Cisco CallManager service.

                          Always Use Prime Line for Voice Message

                          From the drop-down list box, choose one of the following options:

                          • On—If the phone is idle, the primary line on the phone becomes the active line for retrieving voice messages when the phone user presses the Messages button on the phone.
                          • Off—If the phone is idle, pressing the Messages button on the phone automatically dials the voice-messaging system from the line that has a voice message. Cisco Unified Communications Manager always selects the first line that has a voice message. If no line has a voice message, the primary line gets used when the phone user presses the Messages button.
                          • Default Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the configuration from the Always Use Prime Line for Voice Message service parameter, which supports the Cisco CallManager service.

                          Calling Party Transformation CSS

                          This setting allows you to localize the calling party number on the device. Make sure that the Calling Party Transformation CSS that you choose contains the calling party transformation pattern that you want to assign to this device.

                          The device takes on the attributes of the Calling Party Transformation Pattern when you assign the pattern to a partition where the Calling Party Transformation CSS exists.

                          Tip    For more configuration information, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

                          Geo Location

                          From the drop-down list box, choose a geo location.

                          You can choose the Unspecified geo location, which designates that this device does not associate with a geo location.

                          You can also choose a geolocation that has been configured with the System > Geolocation Configuration menu option.

                          Feature Control Policy

                          Choose the Feature Control Policy for this group of phones.

                          A feature control policy specifies the appearance of features and the associated softkeys that are displayed on the phone.

                          Use Device Pool Calling Party Transformation CSS

                          To use the Calling Party Transformation CSS that is configured in the device pool that is assigned to this device, check this check box. If you do not check this check box, the device uses the Calling Party Transformation CSS that you configured in the device configuration window.

                          Device Security Mode

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the mode that you want to set for the device:

                          Use System Default—The phone uses the value that you specified for the enterprise parameter, Device Security Mode.

                          Non-secure—No security features exist for the phone. A TCP connection opens to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                          Authenticated Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides integrity and authentication for the phone. A TLS connection that uses NULL/SHA opens.

                          Encrypted Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides integrity, authentication, and encryption for the phone. A TLS connection that uses AES128/SHA opens.

                          This field displays only if the phone model supports authentication or encryption.

                          Retry Video Call as Audio

                          This check box applies only to video endpoints that receive a call. If this phone receives a call that does not connect as video, the call tries to connect as an audio call.

                          By default, the system checks this check box to specify that this device should immediately retry a video call as an audio call (if it cannot connect as a video call) prior to sending the call to call control for rerouting.

                          If you uncheck this check box, a video call that fails to connect as video does not try to establish as an audio call. The call then fails to call control, and call control routes the call via Automatic Alternate Routing (AAR) and/or route/hunt list.

                          Ignore Presentation Indicators (Internal Calls Only)

                          Check this check box to configure call display restrictions on a call-by-call basis. When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores any presentation restriction that is received for internal calls.

                          Allow Control of Device from CTI

                          Check this check box to allow control of all CTI controllable devices from CTI.

                          You can enable or disable this check box based on CTI Controllable Device Type and Device Protocol. For example, a 7975 with SIP protocol does not get supported by CTI; therefore, the check box should be disabled. A 7975 with SCCP protocol does get supported by CTI; hence check box should be enabled.

                          Logged into Hunt Group

                          This check box, which gets checked by default for all phones, indicates that the phone is currently logged in to a hunt list (group). When the phone gets added to a hunt list, the administrator can log the user in or out by checking (and unchecking) this check box.

                          Users use the softkey on the phone to log their phone in or out of the hunt list.

                          Remote Device

                          If you are experiencing delayed connect times over SCCP to remote sites, check the Remote Device check box in the Phone Configuration window. Checking this check box tells Cisco Unified Communications Manager to allocate a buffer for the phone device when it registers and to bundle SCCP messages to the phone.

                          Because this feature consumes resources, be sure to check this check box only when you are experiencing signaling delays for phones that are running SCCP. Most users do not require this option.

                          Protected Device

                          Check this check box to designate a phone as "protected." This enables the phone to play a two-second tone notifying the user when a call is both encrypted and both phones are configured as protected devices. The tone plays for both parties when the call is answered. The tone does not play unless both phones are "protected" and the call occurs over encrypted media.

                          Tip    For a detailed description of the secure-tone feature and the configuration requirements, see the Cisco Unity Connection System Administration Guide.

                          Hotline Device

                          Check this check box to make this device a Hotline device. Hotline devices can only connect to other Hotline devices. This feature is an extension of PLAR, which configures a phone to automatically dial one directory number when it goes off-hook. Hotline provides additional restrictions that you can apply to devices that use PLAR.

                          To implement Hotline, you must also create a softkey template without supplementary service softkeys, and apply it to the Hotline device.

                          Protocol Specific Information

                          Packet Capture Mode

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the mode that you want to set for signal packet capture:

                          • None—Choose None if you do not want to specify a mode.
                          • Real-Time Mode—Use this mode for real-time signal packet capture.
                          • Batch Processing Mode—Use this mode for batch processing signal packet capture mode.

                          Packet Capture Duration

                          BLF Presence Group

                          Used with the BLF Presence feature, the phone that is running SIP or SCCP serves as a watcher because it requests status about the presence entity; for example, directory number, that is configured as a BLF speed dial button on the phone.

                          If you want the phone to receive the status of the presence entity, choose a BLF Presence group that is allowed to view the status of the Presence group that is applied to the directory number, as indicated in the BLF Presence Group Configuration window.

                          Tip    For more information on the BLF Presence feature, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

                          SIP Dial Rules

                          If required, choose the appropriate SIP dial rule. SIP dial rules provide local dial plans for Cisco IP phones 7905, 7912, 7940, and 7975 that are running SIP, so users do not have to press a key or wait for a timer before the call gets processed.

                          Leave the SIP Dial Rules field set to <None> if you do not want dial rules applied to the IP phone that is running SIP. This means the user will have to use the Dial softkey or wait for the timer to expire before the call gets processed.

                          Device Security Profile

                          For phones that are running SCCP or SIP, choose the security profile that you want to apply to the device.

                          All phones require that you apply a security profile. If the phone does not support security, choose a nonsecure profile.

                          MTP Preferred Originating Codec

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the codec to use if a media termination point is required for SIP calls.

                          Rerouting Calling Search Space

                          From the drop-down list box, choose a calling search space to use for rerouting.

                          The rerouting calling search space of the referrer gets used to find the route to the refer-to target. When the Refer fails due to the rerouting calling search space, the Refer Primitive rejects the request with the "405 Method Not Allowed" message.

                          The redirection (3xx) primitive and transfer feature also uses the rerouting calling search space to find the redirect-to or transfer-to target.

                          Out-of-Dialog Refer Calling Search Space

                          From the drop-down list box, choose an out-of-dialog refer calling search space.

                          Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the out-of-dialog (OOD) Refer Authorization calling search space (CSS) to authorize the SIP out-of-dialog Refer. The administrator can restrict the use of out-of-dialog Refer by configuring the OOD CSS of the Referrer. Refer Primitive rejects the OOD Refer request with a "403 Forbidden" message.

                          SUBSCRIBE Calling Search Space

                          Used with the Presence feature, the SUBSCRIBE Calling Search Space determines how Cisco Unified Communications Manager routes the subscription requests that come from the phone. From the drop-down list box, choose the calling search space that you want to use for this purpose.

                          Tip    For more information on the Presence feature, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

                          SIP Profile

                          Choose the default SIP profile or a specific profile that was previously created. SIP profiles provide specific SIP information for the phone such as default telephony event payload type, registration and keepalive timers, media ports, Iris, and dynamic DNS server addresses.

                          Digest User

                          Used with digest authentication (SIP security), choose an end user that you want to associate with the phone.

                          Ensure that you configured digest credentials for the user that you choose, as specified in the End User Configuration window.

                          After you save the phone configuration and reset the phone, the digest credentials for the user get added to the phone configuration file.

                          For more information on digest authentication, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.

                          Media Termination Point Required

                          Use this field to indicate whether a media termination point is used to implement features that H.323 does not support (such as hold and transfer).

                          Check the Media Termination Point Required check box if you want to use an MTP to implement features. Uncheck the Media Termination Point Required check box if you do not want to use an MTP to implement features.

                          Use this check box only for H.323 clients and those H.323 devices that do not support the H.245 empty capabilities set or if you want media streaming to terminate through a single source.

                          Unattended Port

                          Check this check box to indicate an unattended port on this device.

                          Require DTMF Reception

                          For phones that are running SIP and SCCP, check this check box to require DTMF reception for this phone.

                          RFC2833 Disabled

                          For phones that are running SCCP, check this check box to disable RFC2833 support.

                          Certification Authority Proxy Function (CAPF) Information (These parameters display only for devices with the capability to support authentication or encryption.)

                          Certificate Operation

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the Certification Operation that you want to perform from the following options:

                          • No Pending Operation—No pending Certification Operation lists exist for this device. Choosing this option disables the remaining CAPF fields.
                          • Install/Upgrade—Install or upgrade a Certification Operation.
                          • Delete—Delete a Certification Operation.
                          • Troubleshoot—Troubleshoot a Certification Operation.

                          Authentication Mode

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the Authentication Mode by which you want the phone to authenticate with CAPF during the certificate operation from the following options:

                          • By Null String—Install/upgrade, delete, or troubleshoot a locally significant certificate without user intervention.
                          • <None>
                          Note   

                          This option prompts you to specify a value for the Authentication Mode.

                          • By Authentication String—Installs/upgrades, deletes, or troubleshoots a locally significant certificate only when the user enters the CAPF authentication string on the phone.
                          • By Existing Certificate (precedence to LSC)—Installs or upgrades, deletes, or troubleshoots a locally significant certificate if a manufacture-installed certificate (MIC) or locally significant certificate (LSC) exists in the phone.
                          Note   

                          Before you choose this option, verify that a certificate exists in the phone. If you choose this option and no certificate exists in the phone, the operation fails.

                          • By Existing Certificate (precedence to MIC)—Installs/upgrades, deletes, or troubleshoots a locally significant certificate if a LSC or MIC exists in the phone.
                          Note   

                          Before you choose this option, verify that a certificate exists in the phone. If you choose this option and no certificate exists in the phone, the operation fails.

                          Authentication String

                          If you chose the By Authentication String option from the Authentication Mode drop-down list box in the security profile, this setting applies. Manually enter a numeric string that contains 4 to 10 digits. To install, upgrade, or troubleshoot a locally significant certificate, the phone user or administrator must enter the authentication string on the phone.

                          Key Size (Bits)

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the Key Size that you want for the certificate from the following options:

                          • 1024—This is the default option.
                          • <None>
                          Note   

                          This option prompts you to specify a value for the Key Size for the certificate.

                          • 2048
                          • 512
                          Note   

                          If you choose a higher key size than the default setting, the phones take longer to generate the entropy that is required to generate the keys. Key generation, which is set at low priority, allows the phone to function while the action occurs. Depending on the phone model, you may notice that key generation takes up to 30 or more minutes to complete.

                          Operation Completes By

                          This field, which supports the Install/Upgrade, Delete, and Troubleshoot Certificate Operation options, specifies the date and time in which you must complete the operation.

                          Check this check box to enable the extension mobility feature. Extension mobility allows a user to log in and out of a Cisco IP Phone. Refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide for more information about extension mobility.

                          Log Out Profile

                          Choose the profile that a phone should load when an extension mobility user logs out. You must configure logout profiles in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

                          Use Current Device Setting—This choice creates an autogenerated device profile as the default device profile.

                          Select a User Device Profile—This choice assigns a user device profile, which has already been defined, that becomes the default device profile for this device.

                          The chosen user device profile gets loaded onto the device when no user is logged in.

                          MultiLevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) Information

                          MLPP Indication

                          If available, this setting specifies whether a device that is capable of playing precedence tones will use the capability when it places an MLPP precedence call.

                          From the drop-down list box, choose a setting to assign to this device from the following options:

                          • Default—This device inherits its MLPP indication setting from its device pool.
                          • Off—This device does not send indication of an MLPP precedence call.
                          • On—This device does send indication of an MLPP precedence call.
                          Note   

                          Do not configure a device with the following combination of settings: MLPP Indication is set to Off while MLPP Preemption is set to Forceful.

                          MLPP Preemption

                          If available, this setting specifies whether a device that is capable of preempting calls in progress will use the capability when it places an MLPP precedence call.

                          From the drop-down list box, choose a setting to assign to this device from the following options:

                          • Default—This device inherits its MLPP preemption setting from its device pool.
                          • Disabled—This device does not preempt calls in progress when it places an MLPP precedence call.
                          • Forceful—This device preempts calls in progress when it places an MLPP precedence call.
                          Note   

                          Do not configure a device with the following combination of settings: MLPP Indication is set to Off while MLPP Preemption is set to Forceful.

                          MLPP Domain (e.g., "0000FF")

                          Enter a hexadecimal value for the MLPP domain that is associated with this device. Ensure that this field is blank or a value between 0 and FFFFFF.

                          H.323 Device Information

                          Signaling Port

                          The value designates the H.225 signaling port that this device uses.

                          The default value specifies 1720. Valid values include 1 through 65535.

                          Retry Video Call as Audio

                          This check box applies only to video endpoints that receive a call. If this phone receives a call that does not connect as video, the call tries to connect as an audio call.

                          By default, the system checks this check box to specify that the sending device should immediately retry a video call that does not connect as an audio call prior to sending the call to call control for rerouting.

                          If you uncheck this check box, a video call that fails to connect as video fails to call control. At this point, call control reroutes the call within the route list. If Automatic Alternate Routing (AAR) is configured and enabled, call control also reroutes the call between route lists.

                          Wait for Far End H.245 Terminal Capability Set

                          By default, the system keeps this check box checked to specify that Cisco Unified Communications Manager should initiate capabilities exchange. This check box specifies that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager needs to receive the far-end H.245 Terminal Capability Set before it sends its H.245 Terminal Capability Set.

                          H.323 Protocol Specific Information

                          SRTP Allowed

                          When this check box is checked, ensure that IPSec is configured in the network to provide end-to-end security. Failure to do so will expose keys and other information.

                          MTP Preferred Originating Codec

                          From the drop-down list box, choose the codec to use if a media termination point is required for SIP calls.

                          Media Termination Point Required

                          Use this field to indicate whether a media termination point (MTP) is used to implement features that H.323 does not support (such as hold and transfer).

                          Check the Media Termination Point Required check box if you want to use a media termination point to implement features. Uncheck the Media Termination Point Required check box if you do not want to use a media termination point to implement features.

                          Use this check box only for H.323 clients and those H.323 devices that do not support the H.245 empty capabilities set or if you want media streaming to terminate through a single source.

                          If you check this check box to require an MTP and this device becomes the endpoint of a video call, the call works as audio only.

                          H.323 Information

                          Outgoing Caller ID Pattern

                          For incoming calls to the phone, enter the pattern, from 0 to 24 digits, that you want to use for caller ID.

                          Calling Party Selection

                          Choose one of the following options to specify which directory number is sent:

                          • First Redirect Number-—Send the directory number of the redirecting device.
                          • Last Redirect Number—Send the directory number of the last device to redirect the call.
                          • First Redirect Number(external)—Send the directory number of the redirecting device.
                          • Last Redirect Number(external)—Send the directory number of the last device to redirect the call.

                          Calling Party Presentation

                          Choose whether the central office transmits or blocks caller ID:

                          • Choose Allowed if you want the central office to send caller ID.
                          • Choose Restricted if you do not want the central office to send caller ID.
                          • Default displays the caller ID unless the caller ID was restricted in a previous level in the call stream.

                          Display IE Delivery

                          Check the check box to deliver the display information element (IE) in SETUP and CONNECT messages for the calling and called party name delivery service.

                          Redirecting Number IE Delivery—Outbound

                          Check this check box to include the Redirecting Number IE in the outgoing SETUP message from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager to indicate the first redirecting number and the redirecting reason of the call when the call is forwarded.

                          Uncheck the check box to exclude the first redirecting number and the redirecting reason from the outgoing SETUP message.

                          Use Redirecting Number IE for voice-messaging integration only. If your configured voice-messaging system supports Redirecting Number IE, check the check box.

                          Redirecting Number IE delivery—Inbound

                          Use Redirecting Number IE when you are integrating a voice-messaging system that supports Redirecting Number IE.

                          Check this check box to accept the Redirecting Number IE in the incoming SETUP message to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                          Uncheck the check box to exclude the Redirecting Number IE in the incoming SETUP message to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                          Note   

                          If you do not choose the device, the system disables the E.164, Technology Prefix, and Zone fields.

                          Note   

                          You cannot change the device to a gatekeeper-controlled phone if more than one directory number is configured for the device.

                          E.164

                          Choose the E.164 address that is registered with the gatekeeper.

                          Note   

                          Ensure the H.323 client is configured as a gatekeeper-controlled device.

                          Note   

                          You must enter a value in this field for a gatekeeper-controlled H.323 client. You can enter only numbers (0-9) and special characters # and * in this field.

                          Technology Prefix

                          Enter the technology prefix to eliminate the need for entering the IP address for every Cisco Unified Communications Manager system when the gw-type-prefix command is configured. For example, you can enter 1#* in this field if you can use the following gw-type-prefix command on the gatekeeper:

                          gw-type-prefix 1#* default-technology.

                          Note   

                          You must enter a value in this field for a gatekeeper-controlled H.323 client. You can enter only numbers (0-9) and special characters # and * in this field.

                          Zone

                          On the gatekeeper, enter the specific zone with which Cisco Unified Communications Manager will register. The zone specifies the total bandwidth that is available for calls between this zone and another zone.

                          Note   

                          You must enter a value in this field for a gatekeeper-controlled phone. You can enter only letters, numbers, spaces, dashes, dots, and underscores in this field.

                          BAT template phone line field descriptions

                          The following table provides descriptions of all possible fields that display when you add or update a line in the BAT templates.
                          • BAT phone template
                          • Gateway template
                          • UDP template
                          • Remote destination template

                          Some device types do not require all the phone settings. Only some fields show the values that were configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. Field names that have an asterisk in the BAT user interface require an entry. Treat fields that do not have an asterisk as optional.

                          Table 2 Field descriptions for adding a line to a BAT template

                          Field

                          Description

                          Directory Number Information

                          Line Template Name

                          Enter a unique name for the line template.

                          Be aware that this field is available only when you are adding a line and not when you are updating an existing line.

                          Route Partition

                          Choose a route partition to which the directory number belongs.

                          Note   

                          The directory number can appear in more than one partition.

                          Description

                          Enter description for the line template. The description can include up to 50 characters in any language, but it cannot include double-quotes ("), percentage sign (%), ampersand ('), or angle brackets (<>).

                          Alerting Name

                          This name represents the name that displays during an alert to a shared directory number. For non-shared directory numbers, during alerts, the system uses the name that is entered in the Display field.

                          Alerting Name ASCII

                          This field provides the same information as the Alerting Name field, but you must limit input to ASCII characters. Devices that do not support Unicode (internationalized) characters display the content of the Alerting Name ASCII field.

                          Active

                          Checking this check box allows calls to this DN to be forwarded (if forwarding is configured). If check box is not checked, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores the DN.

                          Directory Number Settings

                          Voice Mail Profile

                          Choose this parameter to make the pilot number the same as the directory number for this line. This action proves useful if you do not have a voice-messaging server that is configured for this phone.

                          Calling Search Space

                          Choose partitions that are searched for numbers that are called from this directory number.

                          Note   

                          Changes cause an update of Pickup Group Names that are listed in the Call Pickup Group field. The setting applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

                          Presence Group

                          Used with the Presence feature, the directory number serves as the presence entity; that is, watchers request the status of the directory number, so the real-time status of the directory number displays on the device.

                          If you want the phone to receive the status of the presence entity, make sure that the Presence group of the watcher is allowed to view the status of the Presence group that is applied to the directory number, as indicated in the Presence Group Configuration window.

                          For information on the Presence feature, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

                          User Hold MOH Audio Source

                          Choose the music on hold audio source to be played when the user presses HOLD to place a call on hold.

                          Network Hold MOH Audio Source

                          Choose the music on hold audio source to be played when the system places a call on hold while the user transfers a call or initiates a conference or call park.

                          Auto Answer

                          Choose one of the following options to activate the Auto Answer feature for this directory number:

                          • Auto Answer Off <Default>
                          • Auto Answer with Headset
                          • Auto Answer with Speakerphone
                          Note   

                          Make sure that the headset or speakerphone is not disabled when you choose Auto Answer with headset or Auto Answer with speakerphone.

                          Do not configure Auto Answer for devices that have shared lines.

                          AAR Settings—The settings in this row of fields specify treatment of calls for which insufficient bandwidth exists to reach the destination. Automated alternate routing (AAR) handles these calls that are routed to the AAR Destination Mask or Voice Mail.

                          AAR Voice Mail

                          Check this check box to use settings in the Voice Mail Profile Configuration window.

                          Note   

                          When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified CallManager ignores the settings in the Coverage/Destination box and Calling Search Space.

                          AAR Destination Mask

                          Use this setting instead of the external phone number mask to determine the AAR Destination to be dialed.

                          AAR CSS

                          Choose the appropriate calling search space for the device to use when it performs automated alternate routing (AAR). The AAR calling search space specifies the collection of route partitions that are searched to determine how to route a collected (originating) number that is otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth.

                          AAR Group

                          Choose the automated alternate routing (AAR) group for this device. The AAR group provides the prefix digits that are used to route calls that are otherwise blocked due to insufficient bandwidth.

                          Set AAR Group to <None> to prevent rerouting blocked calls.

                          Retain this destination in the call forwarding history

                          Checking this check box allows the AAR leg of the call to be present in the Call History.

                          Visual Message Waiting Indicator Policy

                          Use this field to configure the handset lamp illumination policy. Choose one of the following options:

                          • Use System Policy (The directory number refers to the service parameter "Message Waiting Lamp Policy" setting.)
                          • Light and Prompt
                          • Prompt Only
                          • Light Only
                          • None

                          Setting applies only to the current device unless you check the Update Shared Device Settings check box and click the Propagate Selected button. (The check box displays only if other devices share this directory number.)

                          Audible Message Waiting Indicator Policy

                          Use this field to configure an audible message waiting indicator policy. Choose one of the following options:

                          • Off
                          • On—When you select this option, you will receive a stutter dial tone when you take the handset off hook.
                          • Default—When you select this option, the phone uses the default that was set at the system level.

                          Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting (Phone Idle)

                          This field determines the type of notification an incoming call sends to members of a call pickup group. If the called phone does not answer, the phones in the call pickup group that are idle will either hear a short ring (ring once) or hear nothing (disabled).

                          • Use System Default—The value of this field gets determined by the setting of the Cisco CallManager service parameter Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting of Idle Station.
                          • Disable—No alert is sent to members of the call pickup group.
                          • Ring Once—A short ring is sent to members of the call pickup group.

                          Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting (Phone Active)

                          This field determines the type of notification an incoming call sends to members of a call pickup group. If the called phone does not answer, the phones in the call pickup group that are busy will either hear a beep (beep beep) or hear nothing (disabled).

                          • Use System Default—The value of this field gets determined by the setting of the Cisco CallManager service parameter Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting of Busy Station.
                          • Disable—No alert is sent to member of the call pickup group.
                          • Beep Only—A beep beep is sent to members of the call pickup group.

                          Recording Option

                          This field determines the recording option on the line appearance of an agent. By default, the recording option specifies Call Recording Disabled.

                          Choose one of the following options:

                          • Call Recording Disabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are not recorded.
                          • Automatic Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are automatically recorded.
                          • Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are recorded if an application invokes calling recording.

                          When the recording option is set to either Automatic Call Recording Enabled or Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled, the line appearance can be associated with a recording profile.

                          When automatic recording is enabled, the application's recording requests get rejected.

                          Recording Profile

                          This field determines the recording profile on the line appearance of an agent.

                          Monitoring CSS

                          The monitoring calling search space of the supervisor line appearance must include the agent line or device partition to allow monitoring the agent.

                          Set the monitoring calling search space on the supervisor line appearance window. Choose an existing calling search space from the drop-down list box.

                          The default value specifies None.

                          Call Forward and Pickup Settings

                          Forward All Voice Mail

                          Check this check box if you want calls to forward to the number that you chose in the voice-mail profile.

                          Checking this check box makes the Forward All Destination field and Forward All Calling Search Space check box not relevant.

                          Forward All Destination

                          Enter the directory number or directory URI to which all calls are forwarded.

                          Note   

                          The setting applies to any dialable phone number, including an outside destination unless restricted, and to all devices that are using this directory number.

                          Forward All Calling Search Space

                          Choose the calling search space to use when calls are forwarded to the specified destination.

                          Note   

                          This setting applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

                          Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All

                          Choose the secondary calling search space (CSS) from the drop-down list box.

                          Because Call Forwarding is a line-based feature, in cases where the device calling search space is unknown, the system uses only the line calling search space to forward the call. If the line calling search space is restrictive and not routable, the forward attempt fails.

                          Addition of a secondary calling search space for Call Forward All provides a solution to enable forwarding. The primary calling search space for Call Forward All and secondary calling search space for Call Forward All get concatenated (Primary CFA CSS + Secondary CFA CSS) when Call Forward All is processed. Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses this combination to validate the CFA destination and to forward the call.

                          Park Monitoring

                          Park Monitoring Forward No Retrieve Destination External

                          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 Monitoring Forward No Retrieve Destination Internal

                          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 Monitoring Reversion Timer

                          This parameter determines the number of seconds that Cisco Unified Communications Manager waits before prompting the user to retrieve a call that the user parked. This timer starts when the user presses the Park softkey on the phone, and a reminder is issued when the timer expires.

                          Default: 60 seconds

                          Note   

                          If you configure a non-zero value, this value overrides the value of this parameter set in the Service Parameters window. However, if you configure a value of 0 here, then the value in the Service Parameters window will be used.

                          Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting (Phone Idle)

                          This field determines the type of notification an incoming call sends to members of a call pickup group. If the called phone does not answer, the phones in the call pickup group that are idle will either hear a short ring (ring once) or hear nothing (disabled).

                          • Use System Default—The value of this field gets determined by the setting of the Cisco CallManager service parameter Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting of Idle Station.
                          • Disable—No alert is sent to members of the call pickup group.
                          • Ring Once—A short ring is sent to members of the call pickup group.

                          Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting (Phone Active)

                          This field determines the type of notification an incoming call sends to members of a call pickup group. If the called phone does not answer, the phones in the call pickup group that are busy will either hear a beep (beep beep) or hear nothing (disabled).

                          • Use System Default—The value of this field gets determined by the setting of the Cisco CallManager service parameter Call Pickup Group Audio Alert Setting of Busy Station.
                          • Disable—No alert is sent to member of the call pickup group.
                          • Beep Only—A beep beep is sent to members of the call pickup group.

                          Recording Option

                          This field determines the recording option on the line appearance of an agent. By default, the recording option specifies Call Recording Disabled.

                          Choose one of the following options:

                          • Call Recording Disabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are not recorded.
                          • Automatic Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are automatically recorded.
                          • Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are recorded if an application invokes calling recording.

                          When the recording option is set to either Automatic Call Recording Enabled or Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled, the line appearance can be associated with a recording profile.

                          When automatic recording is enabled, the application’s recording requests get rejected.

                          Recording Profile

                          This field determines the recording profile on the line appearance of an agent. Choose an existing recording profile from the drop-down list box. To create a recording profile, use the Device > Device Settings > Recording Profile menu option.

                          The default value specifies None.

                          Monitoring Calling Search Space

                          The monitoring calling search space of the supervisor line appearance must include the agent line or device partition to allow monitoring the agent.

                          Set the monitoring calling search space on the supervisor line appearance window. Choose an existing calling search space from the drop-down list box.

                          The default value specifies None.

                          Log Missed Calls

                          This check box allows you to turn this feature on or off. If the check box displays as checked (turned on), which is the default for this setting, Cisco Unified Communications Manager logs missed calls in the call history for that directory number on the phone.

                          Forward All CSS Activation Policy

                          Select one of the following options from the drop-down list box:

                          • Use System Default
                          • With Configured CSS
                          • With Activating Device/Line CSS

                          If you select the With Configured CSS option, the Forward All Calling Search Space that is explicitly configured in the Directory Number Configuration window controls the forward all activation and call forwarding. If the Forward All Calling Search Space is set to None, no CSS gets configured for Forward All. A forward all activation attempt to any directory number with a partition will fail. No change in the Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All occurs during the forward all activation.

                          If you prefer to utilize the combination of the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space without explicitly configuring a Forward All Calling Search Space, select With Activating Device/Line CSS for the Calling Search Space Activation Policy. With this option, when Forward All is activated from the phone, the Forward All Calling Search Space and Secondary Calling Search Space for Forward All automatically gets populated with the Directory Number Calling Search Space and Device Calling Search Space for the activating device.

                          Hold Reversion Ring Duration (seconds)

                          Enter a number from 0 to 1200 (inclusive) to specify the wait time in seconds before issuing a reverted call alert to the holding party phone.

                          If you enter a value of 0, Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not invoke the reverted call feature for a held call.

                          Hold Reversion Notification Interval (seconds)

                          Enter a number from 0 to 1200 (inclusive) to specify the interval time in seconds for sending periodic reminder alerts to the holding party phone.

                          If you enter a value of 0, Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not send reminder alerts.

                          Party Entrance Tone

                          Choose one of the following options from the drop-down list box:

                          • 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, no longer remains 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.

                          Multiple Call/Call Waiting Settings

                          Maximum Number of Calls

                          You can configure up to 184 calls for a line on a device in a cluster, with the limiting factor being the device. As you configure the number of calls for one line, the calls that are available for another line decrease.

                          The default specifies 4. If the phone does not allow multiple calls for each line, the default specifies 2.

                          For CTI route points, you can configure up to 10,000 calls for each port. The default specifies 5000 calls.

                          Use this field in conjunction with the Busy Trigger field.

                          Busy Trigger

                          This setting, which works in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls and Call Forward Busy, determines the maximum number of calls to be presented at the line. If maximum number of calls is set for 50 and the busy trigger is set to 40, incoming call 41 gets rejected with a busy cause (and will get forwarded if Call Forward Busy is set). If this line is shared, be aware that all the lines must be busy before incoming calls get rejected.

                          Use this field in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls for CTI route points. The default specifies 4500 calls.

                          Forwarded Call Information Display for This Device

                          Caller Name

                          Check this check box to include the caller name in the display when a forwarded call is received. Default leaves this check box checked.

                          Caller Number

                          Directory URI Fields

                          URI (1-5) on Directory Number

                          Enter a directory URI to associate with the directory number for this phone. Follow the username@host format. Enter a username of up to 47 alphanumeric characters. For the host address, enter an IPv4 address or fully qualified domain name. You can associate up to five directory URIs to a single directory number.

                          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.

                          URI (1-5) Is Primary on Directory Number

                          Enter a 't' (True) to indicate that this directory URI is the primary directory URI for this extension. Otherwise, enter an 'f' (False) to indicate that this is not the primary directory URI for this extension.

                          Note   

                          You can associate up to five directory URIs to a single directory number, but you must select a single primary directory URI.

                          BAT template field descriptions to add Intercom template

                          The following table provides descriptions of all possible fields that display when you add an Intercom template in a BAT phone, gateway, or UDP template. Some device types do not require all the phone settings. Only some fields show the values that were configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. Field names that have an asterisk in the BAT user interface require an entry. Treat fields that do not have an asterisk as optional.

                          • Auto Answer with Speakerphone
                          Note   

                          Do not configure auto answer for devices that have shared lines.

                          Default Activated Device

                          From the drop-down list box, choose a default activated device for this directory number. The selected device specifies the phone on which this directory number is activated by default. The drop-down list box lists only devices that support intercom.

                          Note   

                          You must specify a default activated device for this intercom directory number to be active as an intercom line.

                          Note   

                          If an intercom DN is specified in a device profile that is configured for Cisco Extension Mobility, that intercom DN will display as an intercom line only when a user logs in to the specified default activated device by using that device profile, as long as the device supports the intercom feature.

                          Create phone CSV data file using BAT spreadsheet

                          You can add new phones or IP telephony devices to the system using the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that was designed for use with BAT. The BAT spreadsheet includes macros that automatically adjust the options for the selected devices.

                          Use the BAT spreadsheet to create the CSV data file. You can define the file format within the spreadsheet, and the BAT spreadsheet uses the data file formats to display the fields for the CSV data file.


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


                          You can use the dummy MAC address option when adding CTI ports. This option gives a unique device name to each CTI port in the form of dummy MAC addresses that you can manually update later using the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration or the Unified CM Auto-Register phone Tool. Do not use the dummy MAC address option for H.323 clients, VGC phones, or VGC virtual phones.

                          The dummy MAC address option automatically generates dummy MAC addresses in the following format:

                          XXXXXXXXXXXX

                          where X represents any 12-character, hexadecimal (0-9 and A-F) number.

                          Attention:

                          The number of lines and speed dials that you define for phones in the BAT spreadsheet must not exceed the numbers that are defined in the BAT phone template, otherwise, an error occurs when you attempt to insert the CSV data file and BAT template.

                          After you have finished editing all 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 phones, and <timestamp> represents the precise date and time that the file was created.

                          You can rename the CSV formatted data file after you save the exported file to your local workstation.


                          Note


                          You cannot upload a CSV filename that contains a comma (for example, abcd,e.txt) to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.


                          Procedure
                            Step 1   To open the BAT spreadsheet, locate and double-click the BAT.xlt file

                            5. Click OK. New columns for the selected fields display in the BAT spreadsheet in the order that you specified.
                            Step 6   Scroll to the right to locate the Number of Phone Lines box and enter the number of lines for the phone.

                            The number of lines you enter must not exceed the number of lines that are configured in the BAT template.

                            Step 7   For phones, you must enter the number of speed-dial buttons in the Maximum Number of Speed Dials box.

                            The number of speed dials you enter must not exceed the number of speed dials that are configured in the BAT template.

                            After you enter the number, columns display for each speed-dial number.
                            Step 8   Enter the number of Busy Lamp Field (BLF) speed-dial buttons in the Maximum Number of BLF Speed Dials box. After you enter the number, columns display for each BLF speed-dial number.
                            Step 9   Enter data for an individual phone 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 phone field descriptions.

                            Step 10   If you did not enter the MAC address for each phone, check the Create Dummy MAC Address check box.
                            Attention:

                            Do not use the dummy MAC address option for H.323 clients, VGC phones, or VGC virtual phones.

                            Step 11   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 with the default filename: <tabname>-<timestamp>.txt to your choice of a folder on your local workstation.

                            What to Do Next

                            You must upload the CSV data file to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager first node database server so BAT can access the CSV data file.

                            Enter a numeric string that contains 4 to 10 digits. To install, upgrade, or troubleshoot a locally significant certificate, the phone user or administrator must enter the authentication string on the phone.

                            Ignore Presentation Indicator

                            Enter Yes or No to configure call display restrictions on a call-by-call basis. When this check box is checked, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores any presentation restriction that is received for internal calls.

                            SIP Profile

                            Enter the default SIP profile or a specific profile that was previously created. SIP profiles provide specific SIP information for the phone such as default telephony event payload type, registration and keep alive timers, media ports, Iris, and dynamic DNS server addresses.

                            Digest User

                            Used with digest authentication (SIP security), choose an end user that you want to associate with the phone.

                            Ensure that you configured digest credentials for the user that you choose, as specified in the End User Configuration window.

                            After you save the phone configuration and reset the phone, the digest credentials for the user get added to the phone configuration file.

                            For more information on digest authentication, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.

                            Log Out Profile

                            Enter the profile that a phone should load when an extension mobility user logs out. You must configure logout profiles in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

                            Use Current Device Setting—This choice creates an autogenerated device profile as the default device profile.

                            Select a User Device Profile—This choice assigns a user device profile, which has already been defined, that becomes the default device profile for this device.

                            The chosen user device profile gets loaded onto the device when no user is logged in.

                            SIPCodec_MTPPreferredOrigCodec

                            Enter the codec to use if a media termination point is required for SIP calls.

                            Dial Rules

                            If required, enter the appropriate SIP dial rule. SIP dial rules provide local dial plans for Cisco Unified IP Phones 7905, 7912, 7940, and 7975 that run SIP, so users do not have to press a key or wait for a timer before the call gets processed.

                            Leave the SIP Dial Rules field set to <None> if you do not want dial rules applied to the IP phone that is running SIP. This means the user must use the Dial softkey or wait for the timer to expire before the call gets processed.

                            CSS Reroute

                            Enter a calling search space to use for rerouting.

                            The system uses the rerouting calling search space of the referrer to find the route to the refer-to target. When the Refer fails due to the rerouting calling search space, the Refer Primitive rejects the request with the "405 Method Not Allowed" message.

                            The redirection (3xx) primitive and transfer feature also uses the rerouting calling search space to find the redirect-to or transfer-to target.

                            Common Phone Configuration

                            Enter the common phone configuration to which you want this phone assigned. The common phone configuration includes the attributes (services or features) that are associated with a particular user.

                            Calling Search Space Refer

                            Enter an out-of-dialog refer calling search space.

                            Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the out-of-dialog (OOD) Refer Authorization calling search space (CSS) to authorize the SIP out-of-dialog Refer. The administrator can restrict the use of out-of-dialog Refer by configuring the OOD CSS of the Referrer. Refer Primitive rejects the OOD Refer request with a "403 Forbidden" message.

                            Certificate Operation

                            Enter the Certification Operation that you want to perform from the following options:

                            Forward on Failure Destination External/Internal

                            (CTI ports only) Enter the directory number or directory URI to which a call coming from an internal or an external number should get forwarded when a phone or CTI application fails.

                            Forward on CTI Failure Destination

                            This setting specifies the directory number to which an internal nonconnected call gets forwarded when an application that controls that directory number fails. Use any dialable phone number, including an outside destination.

                            When you enter a destination value for internal calls, the system automatically copies this value to the Destination field for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different destination, you must enter a different value in the Destination field for external calls.

                            Forward on CTI Failure Calling Search Space

                            This setting applies to all devices that are using this directory number.

                            When you choose a Calling Search Space for internal calls, the system automatically copies this setting to the Calling Search Space setting for external calls. If you want external calls to forward to a different calling search space, choose a different setting in the Calling Search Space for external calls.

                            Call Pickup Group

                            Choose a Pickup Group Name to specify the call pickup group, which can answer incoming calls to this directory number by dialing the appropriate pickup group number.

                            Enter the phone number (or mask) that is sent for Caller ID information when a call is placed from this line.

                            You can enter a maximum of 24 numbers and "X" characters. The Xs represent the directory number and must appear at the end of the pattern. For example, if you specify a mask of 972813XXXX, an external call from extension 1234 displays a caller ID number of 9728131234.

                            Forward No Answer Ring Duration (CFNA)

                            Enter the number of seconds to allow the call to ring before forwarding the call to the Forward No Answer Destination.

                            Target Destination (MLPP)

                            Enter the number to which MLPP precedence calls should be directed if this directory number receives a precedence call and neither this number nor its call forward destination answers the precedence call.

                            Values can include numeric characters, pound (#),and asterisk (*).

                            Calling Search Space (MLPP)

                            Enter the calling search space to associate with the alternate party target (destination) number.

                            No Answer Ring Duration (MLPP)

                            Enter the time, seconds (between 4 and 30), after which an MLPP precedence call will be directed to this directory number’s alternate party if this directory number and its call forwarding destination have not answered the precedence call.

                            Leave this setting blank to use the value that is set in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager enterprise parameter, Precedence Alternate Party Timeout.

                            Maximum Number of Calls

                            You can configure up to 200 calls for a line on a device in a cluster, with the limiting factor being the device. As you configure the number of calls for one line, the calls that are available for another line decrease.

                            The default specifies 4. If the phone does not allow multiple calls for each line, the default specifies 2.

                            For CTI route points, you can configure up to 10,000 calls for each port. The default specifies 5000 calls. Use this field in conjunction with the Busy Trigger field.

                            Busy Trigger

                            This setting, which works in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls and Call Forward Busy, determines the maximum number of calls to be presented at the line. If maximum number of calls is set for 50 and the busy trigger is set to 40, incoming call 41 gets rejected with a busy cause (and will get forwarded if Call Forward Busy is set). If this line is shared, be aware that all the lines must be busy before incoming calls get rejected.

                            Use this field in conjunction with Maximum Number of Calls for CTI route points. The default specifies 4500 calls.

                            Alerting Name

                            This name represents the name that displays during an alert to a shared directory number. For non-shared directory numbers, during alerts, the system uses the name that is entered in the Display field.

                            Alerting Name ASCII

                            This field provides the same information as the Alerting Name field, but you must limit input to ASCII characters. Devices that do not support Unicode (internationalized) characters display the content of the Alerting Name ASCII field.

                            Auto Answer

                            Enter one of the following options to activate the Auto Answer feature for this directory number:

                            • Auto Answer Off <Default>
                            • Auto Answer with Headset
                            • Auto Answer with Speakerphone
                            Note   

                            Make sure that the headset or speakerphone is not disabled when you choose Auto Answer with headset or Auto Answer with speakerphone.

                            Do not configure Auto Answer for devices that have shared lines.

                            Route Filter

                            Enter a name in the Route Filter Name field. The name can contain up to 50 alphanumeric characters and can contain any combination of spaces, periods (.), hyphens (-), and underscore characters (_). Ensure each route filter name is unique to the route plan.

                            Note   

                            Use concise and descriptive names for your route filters. The CompanynameLocationCalltype format usually provides enough detail and is short enough to enable you to quickly and easily identify a route filter. For example, CiscoDallasMetro identifies a route filter for toll free, inter-local access and transport area (LATA) calls from the Cisco office in Dallas.

                            This field determines the recording option on the line appearance of an agent. By default, the recording option specifies Call Recording Disabled.

                            Enter one of the following options:

                            • Call Recording Disabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are not recorded.
                            • Automatic Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are automatically recorded.
                            • Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled—The calls that the agent makes on this line appearance are recorded if an application invokes calling recording.

                            When the recording option is set to either Automatic Call Recording Enabled or Application Invoked Call Recording Enabled, the line appearance can be associated with a recording profile.

                            When automatic recording is enabled, the application's recording requests get rejected.

                            Recording Profile

                            This field determines the recording profile on the line appearance of an agent.

                            • 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.

                            This parameter determines the number of seconds that Cisco Unified Communications Manager waits before prompting the user to retrieve a call that the user parked. This timer starts when the user presses the Park softkey on the phone, and a reminder is issued when the timer expires.

                            Default: 60 seconds

                            If you configure a non-zero value, this value overrides the value of this parameter set in the Service Parameters window. However, if you configure a value of 0 here, then the value in the Service Parameters window will be used.
