Presence Gateways


Use the presence gateways window to configure the gateways that the presence engine must know about to receive presence information.

Finding Presence Gateways

Because you might have several presence gateways in your network, Cisco Unified Presence lets you locate specific gateways on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate presence gateways.


Note During your work in a browser session, the cookies on the client machine store your find/list search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, or if you close the browser and then open a new browser window, the system retains your Cisco Unified Presence search preferences until you modify your search.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Cisco Unified Presence > Presence Engine > Presence Gateways.

The Find and List Presence Gateways window displays. Records from an active (prior) query may also display in the window.

Step 2 To find all records in the database, ensure the dialog box is empty; go to Step 3.

To filter or search records

From the drop-down list box, choose a search pattern.

Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.


Note To add additional search criteria, click the + button. When you add criteria, the system searches for a record that matches all criteria that you specify. To remove criteria, click the - button to remove the last added criterion or click the Clear Filter button to remove all added search criteria.


Step 3 Click Find.

All matching records display. You can change the number of items that display on each window by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.


Note You can delete multiple records from the database by checking the check boxes next to the appropriate record and clicking Delete Selected. You can delete all configurable records for this selection by clicking Select All and then clicking Delete Selected.


Step 4 From the list of records that display, click the link for the record that you want to view.


Note To reverse the sort order, click the up or down arrow, if available, in the list header.
