How to Configure Application Dialing Rules

How to Configure Application Dialing Rules

You can configure dialing rules for applications, such as Cisco WebDialer, that automatically strip numbers from, or add numbers to, a phone number that a user dials. For example, you can use dialing rules to automatically prefix a digit to a phone number to provide access to an outside line.

You configure application dialing rules on Cisco Unified Communications Manager from Cisco Unified CM Administration > Call Routing > Dial Rules > Application Dial Rules.


Note The Click to Call application cannot use application dialing rules with releases of Cisco Unified Communications Manager earlier than 6.x. To use application dialing rules with the Click to Call application, upgrade Cisco Unified Communications Manager to 6.x or later.


This section provides a brief description of application dialing rules. For detailed information on configuring the application dialing rules on Cisco Unified Communications Manager, refer to the following documents:

The "Application Dial Rules Configuration" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html

The "Dial Plans" section in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Solution Reference Network Design at the following URL:

Sample Application Dialing Rules

In the sample application dial plan in Table 2-1, 9 represents the off-net access code for outside dialing. For domestic calls, you append the appropriate quantity of digits to the off-net access code to call either a local number or a national (long-distance) number. In each international dialing rule, you replace the "+" with the off-net access code and the appropriate international dialing access code.

The following application dialing rules are configured in Table 2-1:

Any international number, the application dialing rule removes "+" from the number, and prepends the off-net access code 9 and the international dialing access code 011 to the remaining digits.

Any local seven digit number, the application dialing rule prepends the off-net access code 9.

Any local ten digit number that begins with 510, the application dialing rule removes 510 from the number and prepends the off-net access code 9 to the remaining digits.

Any national ten digit number, the application dialing rule prepends the digits 91.

Any national eleven digit number beginning with 1, the application dialing rule prepends the off-net access code 9.

If the Number Begins With field is blank, you leave the number of initial digits open that you wish to apply to the dialing rule. For example, the initial digits 1, 1408, or 1408526 will each match the dialled number 14085264000.

You must configure the application dialing rule list in order of priority. Cisco Unified Communications Manager applies the first dialing rule match that it finds for the dialled number in the dialing rule list; it does not attempt to find the best match in the list. For example, if you configure the dialing rule conditions listed below, on receipt of the dialled number 14085264000, Cisco Unified Communications Manager will ignore dialing rule 1, and apply dialing rule 2 because it is the first match. Although dialing rule 3 is the best match, Cisco Unified Communications Manager ignores any subsequent rules in the list after finding the first match.

1. Begins with 9 and is 8 digits long, then do X.

2. Begins with 1 and is 11 digits long, then do Y.

3. Begins with 1408 and is 11 digits long, then do Z.


Note You can also configure directory lookup rules on Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Directory lookup rules transform the number the user dials into a directory number. For further information, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html

Configuring Proxy Server Access

Click to Call supports proxy server access as follows:

If a proxy server is enabled that allows anonymous connections, Click to Call can successfully connect to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. No further action is required from the user.

If a proxy server is enabled that uses basic or digest proxy authentication, Click to Call uses the Internet Explorer or Windows credentials to authenticate with the proxy server. Users can select to remember the credentials for future use when they enter the credentials in Internet Explorer or in the pop-up dialog that prompts them for the user credentials after they make a call.

If a proxy server is enabled that uses NTLM authentication, Click to Call can successfully connect to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. No further action is required from the user. In this situation, Click to Call only works with Microsoft-based proxy servers.


Note Click to Call communicates with Cisco Unified Communications Manager via an SSL tunnel through HTTPS. For all proxy server access, you must configure your proxy server to allow SSL tunnels through port 8443.
