Instant Message Logging Message

In cloud-based deployments, Cisco Jabber now displays the following message to users when you enable IM logging on Cisco WebEx Administration Tool:

All instant messages sent in this session to and from this account, as well as the
initiation and termination of any other communication modes (e.g. voice call, video call)
will be logged and are subject to archival, monitoring, or review and/or disclosure to
someone other than the recipient.

For more information about IM logging with the Cisco WebEx Messenger service, refer to Overview of IM Logging and Archiving at: http:/​/​www.webex.com/​webexconnect/​orgadmin/​help/​index.htm?toc.htm?cs_​IM_​Archiving.htm

Call Control with Accessories

Cisco Jabber includes an API that exposes call control functions to third party accessories. This API lets our vendor partners create software plugins that enable their accessories to use the API call control functions in Cisco Jabber.

The accessories API was introduced in Cisco Jabber for Windows version 9.2.0. In versions 9.2.0 to 9.2.3, the accessories API is disabled by default. As of this version, Cisco Jabber for Windows 9.2.4, the accessories API is enabled by default.


Note


You can enable or disable the accessories API with this configuration parameter: EnableAccessoriesManager.


Compatible Third Party Accessories

You can use certain Cisco compatible accessories such as headsets, speakers, keyboards, and audio devices to perform call control actions with Cisco Jabber from the device. For example, with some headsets you can use controls to answer incoming calls, end active calls, mute audio, and place calls on hold.

For a list of devices that are compatible with Cisco Jabber, refer to the Unified Communications Endpoint and Client Accessories site at: http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​en/​US/​prod/​voicesw/​uc_​endpoints_​accessories.html


Note
