This chapter provides information to delete a group of user device profiles (UDPs) from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database. You can locate existing phone records that you want to delete using either a query search or a custom file.
You can create a custom file of UDPs that you want to delete using a text editor. You can have device profile name, device profile description, and directory number in the same custom file, but you cannot have directory numbers in the same file. You need to create separate files—one file that contains the device names and MAC addresses and another file that contains the directory numbers.
You cannot delete UDPs with shared lines by using a custom file.
Do not use the insert or export transaction files that are created with bat.xlt for the delete transaction. Instead, you must create a custom file with details of the UDP records that need to be deleted. Use only this file for the delete transaction.
Before You Begin
Create a text file that lists one of these details for the UDPs that you want to delete:
The custom file does not need a header, and you can enter values for name, description, or directory number. Put each item on a separate line in the text file.
Upload the custom files to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server first node.
Choose Bulk Administration > User Device Profiles > Delete User Device Profiles > Custom File. The Delete User Device Profiles Configuration window displays.
In the Delete drop-down list box choose one of the following options:
In the Device Profiles where drop-down list box, choose the type of custom file that you have created from one of the following criteria:
In the list of custom files, choose the filename of the custom file for this delete, then click Find. A list of UDPs matching your search criteria displays.
Click Submit to create a job to delete the UDPs.
Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and/or activate this job.
