Provision Unified CM for Unified CCX

When you access Unified CCX Administration for the first time in a cluster, the system automatically initiates the cluster setup procedure once for each cluster to perform the following tasks:

  • Identify Unified CCX license files
  • Enter information about Unified CM Administrative XML Layer (AXL) and Unified CM Telephony and RmCm providers

You can modify the Unified CM information from Unified CCX. See the Installation Guide for Cisco Unified CCX and Cisco Unified IP IVR, Release 9.0(1) for detailed information on how to perform the initial system setup using the Unified CCX Administration web interface.

The following topics explain how to modify the Unified CM information from Unified CCX:

Configure Unified Communications Manager information

During initial setup of Unified CCX using the Unified CCX Administration web interface, the administrator who installed the Unified CCX should have already provided the Unified Communications Manager IP address and hostname(s). The administrator must also provide the Administrative XML Layer (AXL) authentication (user ID and password) information.

The Unified Communications Manager Configuration web page allows you to configure and update the AXL authentication information, Unified Communications Manager Telephony subsystem information, and RmCm Provider configuration information from within Unified CCX.

This page has four blocks of information: AXL service details, Unified Communications Manager Telephony Provider details, and RmCm Provider details.

    Modify Unified Communications Manager Telephony information


    Note


    The Unified Communications Manager Telephony client is installed in the background after you configure the Unified Communications Manager Telephony user. The Unified Communications Manager Telephony client runs silently and verifies that the right version and the right client are installed.


    Configuring the Unified Communications Manager Telephony user does not automatically install the Unified Communications Manager Telephony client. This is normally done during activation of Unified CCX Engine in component activation (see Cisco Unified Contact Center Express Serviceability Guide). To do it manually, go to Subsystems > Unified CM Telephony and select Cisco JTAPI Resync submenu option from the Unified CCX Administration menu bar.

    The latest list of CTI Managers within a cluster are listed in this section. If the Unified Communications Manager is not functioning or if the Unified CCX is not able to connect to the Unified Communications Manager for any reason, information obtained from the most recent connection is saved as a part of the bootstrap information.

        Unified Communications Manager for Unifed CCX configuration

        To enable Unified CCX to communicate with Unified Communications Manager, you also need to assign extensions for the users who will be agents in your Unified CCX system.


        Note


        If you delete a Unified CCX user with Administrative rights from Unified Communications Manager, you can still log in to the Unified CCX Administration web interface as an application user.



        Note


        Q Signaling (QSIG) and Path Replacement (PR) features of Unified Communications Manager are not supported by Unified CCX.


        Invoke Unified Communications Manager administration

        Begin the process of configuring Unified Communications Manager by connecting to the Unified Communications Manager Administration web interface.

        To connect to the Unified Communications Manager Administration web interface, complete the following steps.

        Procedure
          Step 1   From a web browser on any computer on your network, enter the following URL: https://servername/ccmadmin.

          In this example, servername is the hostname or IP address of your Unified Communications Manager server.

          A Security Alert dialog box displays.

          Step 2   Click the appropriate button.
          Step 3   At the main Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration web page, enter the Unified Communications Manager username and password, and then click Login.

          The Unified Communications Manager Administration web page appears.

          You are now ready to use the Unified Communications Manager Administration web interface to configure users for Unified CCX.


          Unified Communications Manager users as Unified CCX agents


          Warning


          Do not configure Unified Communications Manager users having same username/password as the application administration credentials (configured during installation). Doing so may restrict the Unified Communications Manager when shared across multiple Unified CCX servers.



          Caution


          When logging in to Cisco Agent Desktop, agents use the Unified Communications Manager user ID and password. While the Unified Communications Manager limits agent IDs to 128 alphanumeric characters, the Unified CCX limits agent IDs to 31 alphanumeric characters. Be sure to abide by the 31-character limit when configuring agents in Unified Communications Manager.



          Note


          Languages like Cyrillic use 2 bytes per character. Some of the desktop applications do not support more than 16 characters. Hence, the first name, the last name, and the user ID of the agent for those languages should be restricted to 16 characters.


          RmCm uses the Unified Communications Manager database to determine which devices it can control and provides an interface method for getting the Media Access Control (MAC) address of the calling party.

          After you install RmCm, you have access to the Unified Communications Manager database. The database stores parameters that initialize Unified Communications Manager Telephony, user profiles, application logic, network-specific configuration information, and Directory Number Associations such as Primary Extension and Unified CCX Extension.

          The Primary Extension field represents the primary directory number for the end user. End users can have multiple lines on their phones. From the drop-down list box, choose a primary extension when associating devices for this end user.

          Unified CCX Extension allows you to define Unified Communications Manager users as Unified CCX agents in Unified Communications Manager.

          To assign Unified CCX devices to end users and application users in the Unified Communications Manager, these users must first exist in Unified Communications Manager. If these users do not exist, you must first add the users. See the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide to obtain detailed information about the Unified CCX web interface and configuration procedures. After adding the end user and the application user, be sure to modify their Unified CCX settings.

          Guidelines for agent phone configuration

          Follow these guidelines when configuring agent phones for Unified CCX agents:

          • Choose Device > Phone in Unified Communications Manager Administration. The Find and List Phones window displays. Enter search criteria to locate a specific phone and click Find. A list of phones that match the search criteria displays. Click the device name of the phone to which you want to add a directory number. The Phone Configuration window displays. In the Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone Configuration web page, select the required Association Information (on the left) to get to the Directory Number Configuration web page. On this page, make the following changes:
            • In the Multiple Call/Call Waiting Settings section, set the Maximum Number of Calls to 2 (default is 4) for Cisco Unified IP Phones 7900 Series and 3 for Cisco Unified IP Phones 8961, 9951, and 9971.
            • In the Multiple Call/Call Waiting Settings section, set the Busy Trigger value to 1 (default is 2).
            • In the Call Forward and Call Pickup Settings section, verify that you do not forward any Unified Communications Manager device to the Unified CCX extension of an agent.
            • In the Call Forward and Call Pickup Settings section, verify that you do not configure the Unified CCX extension of an agent to forward to a Unified CCX route point.
          • Always disable (turn off) Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) when configuring a Cisco Unified Communications product. You can disable SRTP for a specified device or for the entire Unified Communications Manager:
            • For a specified device: Choose Device > Phone. In the Find and List Phone page, select the required phone device. In the Phone Configuration page for the selected phone, scroll down to the Protocol Specific Information section.To turn off SRTP on the phone device, select any one of the Non Secure SCCP Profile auth by choices from the drop-down list of SCCP Phone Security Profile or SCCP Device Security Profile field.
            • For the entire Unified Communications Manager cluster: Choose System > Enterprise Parameters. In the Enterprise Parameters Configuration page, scroll down to the Securities Parameters section, to verify that the corresponding value for the Cluster Security Mode field is 0. This parameter indicates the security mode of the cluster. A value of 0 indicates that phones will register in nonsecure mode (no security).
          • The Unified CCX extension for the agent must be listed within the top 4 extensions on the device profile. Listing the extension from position 5 on will cause Unified CCX to fail to monitor the device, so the agent will not be able to log in.
          • Do not forward any Unified Communications Manager device to the Unified CCX extension of an agent.
          • Do not configure the Unified CCX extension of an agent to forward to a Unified CCX route point.
          • Do not use characters other than the numerals 0 to 9 in the Unified CCX extension of an agent.
          • Do not configure two lines on an agent phone with the same extension when both lines exist in different partitions.
          • Do not assign a Unified CCX extension to multiple devices.
          • Do not configure the same Unified CCX extension in more than one device or device profile. (Configuring a Unified CCX extension in one device or device profile is supported.)
          • To use Cisco Unified IP Phones 9900 Series, 8900 Series, and 6900 Series as agent devices, the RmCm application user in Unified Communications Manager needs to have "Allow device with connected transfer/conference" option assigned to itself.

          To determine a list of Unified CCX agent devices supported by Cisco Agent Desktop, see the Cisco Unified CCX Software and Hardware Compatibility Guide for active releases available at: http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​en/​US/​products/​sw/​custcosw/​ps1846/​products_​device_​support_​tables_​list.html.

          Modify existing Unified Communications Manager users

          To use any version of Unified Communications Manager, you must first ensure that you define Unified Communications Manager users as Unified CCX agents in Unified Communications Manager. After you perform this task, these Unified CCX agents can be combined into Resource Groups, assigned Skills, and placed in CSQs.


          Note


          In Unified CCX, this operation is called "associating a device."



          Note


          Be sure to assign Unified CCX devices to both end users and application users in the Unified Communications Manager web interface.


          To assign devices to an end user, you must access the End User Configuration window for that user. The End User Configuration window in Unified Communications Manager Administration allows the administrator to add, search, display, and maintain information about Unified Communications Manager end users.

          To assign devices to an application user, you must access the Application User Configuration window for that user. The Application User Configuration window in Unified Communications Manager Administration allows the administrator to add, search, display, and maintain information about Unified Communications Manager application users.


          Note


          If Enterprise Mobility (EM) is used together with both Cisco Unified Communications Manager release 8.0 or later and Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the Resource Manager application user must be associated with the device profile and not with the device.

          To modify the Unified CCX Extension settings for existing Unified Communications Manager users who are Unified CCX agents, complete the following steps.

          Procedure
            Step 1   Connect to the Unified Communications Manager Administration web interface.

            The Unified Communications Manager Administration web page appears.

            Step 2   Choose User Management > End User.

            The Find and List End Users page displays. Use the two drop-down list boxes to search for an end user.

            Tip   

            To find all end users that are registered in the database, click Find without entering any search text. A list of discovered end users displays. Then, skip to Step 6.

            Step 3   From the first Find end user where drop-down list box, choose one of the listed criteria.
            Step 4   From the second Find end user where drop-down list box, choose one of the listed criteria.
            Step 5   Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable, and click Find.

            A list of discovered end users displays.

            Step 6   From the list of records, click the end user name that matches your search criteria.

            The End User Configuration page opens, displaying the configuration information for the end user that you chose.

            Step 7   In the Controlled Devices list box below the Device Information section, select the device and click the Down arrow below the Available Profiles list box. If the device that you want to associate with this end user is not displayed in this pane, do the following to associate devices with an end user:
            1. From the Device Information pane, click Device Association. The User Device Association page opens.
            2. Finding a Device: Because you may have several devices in your network, Cisco Unified Communications Manager lets you locate specific devices on the basis of specific criteria. Click Find. All or matching records display. You can change the number of items that display in each page by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.
            3. Associating a Device: From the Device association for (this particular end user) pane, choose the devices that you want to associate with this end user by checking the box to the left of the device names. You can also use the buttons at the bottom of the window to select and deselect devices to associate with the end user.
            4. To complete the association, click Save Selected/Changes.
            5. From Related Links drop-down list box in the upper right corner of the web page, choose Back to User, and click Go.

              The End User Configuration page displays, and the associated devices that you chose display in the Controlled Devices pane.

            Step 8   Select the required device and save your changes to associate that device with this end user.

            After the device is associated, the Controlled Devices field displays the description information (for example, the MAC address) that the end user controls.

            Step 9   In the End User Configuration page, scroll down to the Directory Number Associations section.
            Step 10   In the Primary Extension field drop-down list and the IPCC Extension field drop-down list, choose the required agent extension for this device.

            These fields represent the primary directory number for the end user. End users can have multiple lines on their phones. If you have a single line, be sure to select the same extension for both fields.

            Step 11   Click Update to apply the changes.

            The specific End User Information page for this user appears, with the message that the update was successful.

            Step 12   From the Unified Communications Manager Administration menu bar, choose User Management > Application User. RmCm Providers are referred to as application users in Unified Communications Manager.
            Note   

            When you associate one device with the Unified CCX agent (end user), you must also be sure to associate the same device with the Unified CCX RmCm Provider (application user).

            The Find and List Application Users window displays. Use the two drop-down list boxes to search for the application users in Unified Communications Manager.

            Tip   

            To find all application users registered in the database, click Find without entering any search text. A list of discovered end users displays. Then, skip to Step 16.

            Step 13   From the first Find application user where drop-down list box, choose one of the listed criteria.
            Step 14   From the second Find application user where drop-down list box, choose one of the listed criteria,
            Step 15   Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable, and click Find.

            A list of discovered application users displays.

            Step 16   From the list of records, click the application user name that matches your search criteria.

            The window displays the application user that you choose.

            Step 17   Repeat Step 7 and Step 8 for the selected Application User.

            These steps ensure that the Unified Communications Manager application users are also defined as Unified CCX agents in Unified Communications Manager.

            Step 18   Click Update to apply the changes.

            The specific Application Information page for this user appears, with the message that the update was successful.

            See the "User Management Configuration" section in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide for detailed information on how to configure an end user and application user using Unified Communications Manager.

            Now that you have defined the agent in Unified Communications Manager, you can configure agents in Unified CCX. Subsequent to that, you will also need to configure resource groups and CSQs.

            Assign Unified Communications Manager users as Cisco TelePresence virtual agents

            The Cisco TelePresence application enables enterprises to create a live, face-to-face interaction with customers over the network. This solution allows rapid deployment of a virtual contact center infrastructure. Agents using Cisco TelePresence are referred to as virtual agents in this guide. Virtual agents connect to callers using Unified CCX, thus incorporating ACD, CAD, CTI, and Unified IP IVR with Cisco Unified Communications Manager and providing the entire solution on one server.


            Note


            For more information on the Cisco TelePresence solution, see http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​en/​US/​products/​ps7060/​index.html.


            The following guidelines apply for the Cisco TelePresence integration with Unified CCX:

            • The only commonly supported codec for Unified CCX and Cisco TelePresence is G711.
            • The following supervisor features are not supported:
              • Monitoring and Recording is not supported for Cisco TelePresence integration with Unified CCX.
              • Due to the unavailability of third-party call control, Cisco Supervisor Desktop (CSD) features, Barge-in, and Intercept are not supported.
            • You will not be able to use the call control Cisco Agent Desktop (CAD) features (Hold, Unhold, Answer, Transfer, Conference, Make Call, and Touch Tone). Be sure to remove or disable these features from CAD as specified in Step 4 in the following procedure.

            Follow this procedure to assign Unified Communications Manager users as virtual agents:

            Procedure
              Step 1   Identify the required Cisco TelePresence system that will participate as a virtual agent in the Unified CCX application.
              1. Note the Unified Communications Manager extension of the Cisco TelePresence deployment.
                Note   

                The Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G and Cisco TelePresence system must be assigned the same extension in Unified Communications Manager, because they both share the same line.

              2. Note the MAC address or the Directory Number of the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G connected to the identified Cisco TelePresence system.
                Tip   

                From the Unified CCX perspective, this is another SIP endpoint.

              Step 2   Associate the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G with the Unified Communications Manager user to configure this user as a virtual agent.
              Step 3   Associate the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G with the RmCm provider.
              Note   

              Do not associate the corresponding Cisco TelePresence system with the RmCm provider.

              Step 4   Customize the Cisco Agent Desktop workflow groups (see Cisco Desktop Administrator Users Guide).
              Tip   

              All the Cisco Agent Desktop call control buttons must be disabled because third-party call control will not be available for the Cisco TelePresence integration with Unified CCX.

              Configure Tool for Auto-Registered Phones Support (TAPS)

              The Tool for Auto-Registered Phone Support (TAPS) loads a preconfigured phone setting on a phone. The TAPS works in conjunction with the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT). After the BAT is used to bulk add phones with dummy MAC addresses to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 9.0(1) Administration, you can plug the phones into the network.

              The administrator or users can then dial a TAPS directory number that causes the phone to download its configuration. At the same time, the phone gets updated in the Unified Communications Manager database with the correct MAC address of the phone. Refer to Configuring the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) if you are not familiar with the BAT.
