Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal Reporting Server

Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal Reporting Server

This chapter contains the configuration procedures you must perform to configure the Unified Voice Portal Reporting Server.

The Unified CVP Reporting VM is required for customers who use Courtesy Callback and who want to run Unified CVP IVR callback application reports.

Configure Unified CVP Reporting Server in Unified CVP OAMP

    Step 1   On the Unified CVP OAMP server, go to Start > Programs > Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal > Operations Console.
    Step 2   When the Operations Console page opens, login.
    Step 3   Navigate to Device Management > Unified CVP Reporting Server.
    Step 4   Click Add New.
    Step 5   Enter the IP Address and hostname of the Reporting Server.
    Step 6   Move all Unified CVP Call Servers from Available to Selected.
    Step 7   Click Save and Deploy.

    Obtain Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal Report Templates

    For Packaged CCE, import the Callback reports only.

    To import Unified CVP report templates complete the following:

      Step 1   On the Unified CVP Reporting Server, click Start.
      Step 2   In the search box, type %CVP_HOME%\CVP_Reporting_Templates and press Enter.
      Step 3   Compress only the Callback reports into a zip folder and copy it to the system from which you will run Unified Intelligence Center Administraton.

      Create Data Source for Cisco Unified CVP Report Data

      Perform the following procedure to create a data source.

        Step 1   Log in to the Unified Intelligence Center at https://<hostname of CUIC Publisher>:8444/cuic.
        Step 2   Select the Data Sources drawer to open the Data Sources page.
        Step 3   Click Create to open an Add Data Source window.
        Step 4   Complete fields on this page as follows:




        Enter the name of this data source.

        Report Designers and Report Definition Designers do not have access to the Data Sources page but can see the list of Data Sources when they create custom reports. To benefit those users, give a new Data Source a meaningful name.


        Enter a description for this data source.


        Choose Informix.


        Type is disabled in Edit mode.

        Database Host

        Enter the IP address or Domain Name System (DNS) name for the Unified CVP Reporting server.


        Enter the port number. Typically, the port is 1526.

        You may have to open this port in the CVP Reporting Server firewall (Window Firewall > Inbound rules > new rule).

        Database Name

        Use the database name callback for stock callback reports.


        Specify the instance name of the desired database. By default, this is cvp.


        Choose the correct time zone for the data stored in the database. In locations that change from Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time, this time zone is updated automatically.

        Database User ID

        Enter the user ID of the Reporting User who is configured in the Operations Console to access the Unified CVP reporting database.

        (The cvp_dbuser account is created automatically during Unified CVP Reporting server installation.)

        Password and Confirm Password

        Enter and confirm the password for the database user.


        Choose UTF-8.

        Default Permissions

        View or edit the permissions for this datasource for My Group and for the All Users group.

        Step 5   Click Test Connection.

        If the status is not Online, review the error message to determine the cause and edit the data source accordingly.

        Step 6   Click Save to close the Add Data Source window.

        The new data source appears on the Data Sources list.
