End User Configuration Settings

In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the User Management > End User menu path to configure end users.

The End User Configuration window in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration allows the administrator to add, search, display, and maintain information about Cisco Unified Communications Manager end users. End users can control phones after you associate a phone in the End User Configuration window.

Tips About Configuring End Users

Consult the following information before you begin to configure end users:

To verify whether the Enable Synchronizing from LDAP Server check box is checked, choose System > LDAP > LDAP System. If the check box is checked, LDAP synchronization is enabled; if not, LDAP synchronization is disabled.

If you enable LDAP synchronization in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, you thereby configure your system to use the LDAP corporate directory as the end user directory for Cisco Unified Communications Manager. In this scenario, you cannot add or delete users in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You add and remove end users in the corporate LDAP directory.

If you enable LDAP synchronization in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, you cannot change some existing user information, including user IDs, in the End User Configuration windows. Instead, you must use the corporate LDAP directory to update some user information.

If you configure your system to authenticate users against the LDAP directory, you cannot configure or change end user passwords in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You configure and change end user passwords in the corporate LDAP directory.

You can import Cisco Unity Connection users in Cisco Unity Connection, as described in the applicable User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection. Or, if you want to do so, you can configure a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration end user as a Cisco Unity Connection user by using the Create a Cisco Unity User option in the End User Configuration window, as described in the "Creating a Cisco Unity Connection Voice Mailbox" section. You can then configure any additional settings in Cisco Unity Connection Administration.

To add end users for Cisco Unity Connection, you must first configure the end user in Cisco Unified Communications Manager. You can then configure an end user voice mailbox in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, as described in the "Creating a Cisco Unity Connection Voice Mailbox" section, or you can use the tools in Cisco Unity Connection, such as Import Users, to add voice-messaging users to the Cisco Unity Connection database, as described in the applicable User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection.

You must configure User ID and Primary Extension for the user in Cisco Unified Communications Manager before you can configure the end user in Cisco Unity Connection. You cannot create a Cisco Unity Connection user without a corresponding Cisco Unified Communications Manager user. You cannot delete an end user in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, unless you have enabled LDAP synchronization and the Cisco DirSync service deletes the user in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration after you delete the user in the LDAP directory. If the Cisco DirSync service deletes the user for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you must manually delete the user in Cisco Unity Connection, as described in the User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection. If you do not delete the user in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, Cisco Unity Connection classifies the user as orphaned.

To edit Cisco Unity Connection settings, the Edit Cisco Unity User option displays in the Related Links drop-down list box to the Cisco Unity Connection > Edit User window. See the applicable User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection for more information.

Next Steps in Configuring an End User

If you want to associate devices to this end user, continue with the "Associating Devices to an End User" procedure.

To manage credentials for this end user, continue with the "Managing End User Credential Information" procedure.

To create a Cisco Unity Connection Voice Mailbox for this user in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, continue with the procedure in "Creating a Cisco Unity Connection Voice Mailbox" section.

To configure a voice mailbox and other Cisco Unity Connection settings for this user in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, see the applicable User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection. To import users into the Cisco Unity Connection database in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, see the User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection.

Tips About Deleting End Users

Before you delete an end user, determine whether the devices or profiles that are associated with the end user need to be removed or deleted.

You can view the devices and profiles that are assigned to the end user from the Device Associations, Extension Mobility, Directory Number Associations, CAPF Information, and Permissions Information areas of the End User Configuration window. You can also choose Dependency Records from the Related Links drop-down list box in the End User Configuration window. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency records summary window displays a message. For more information about dependency records, see the "Accessing Dependency Records" section on page A-2.

Next Steps in Deleting an End User

If this user is configured in Cisco Unity Connection, the user association to Cisco Unified Communications Manager gets broken when you delete the user in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You can delete the orphaned user in Cisco Unity Connection Administration. See the applicable User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection for more information. Deleting the user will delete all messages in the user voice mailbox.

Using the GUI

For instructions on how to use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Graphical User Interface (GUI) to find, delete, configure, or copy records, see the "Navigating the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Application" section on page 1-13 and its subsections, which explain how to use the GUI and detail the functions of the buttons and icons.
