Setup for Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager

This chapter describes how you can set up Cisco Jabber for iPad using Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

Specifying Cisco Unified Presence Settings

Follow these steps.

Procedure
    Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Jabber > Settings.
    Note   

    Cisco Unified Presence is known as Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence starting with Release 9.0. Select Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence > Application > Legacy Client > Settings if you are using Release 9.0.

    Step 2   Enter the information described in this table:
    Field Setting
    CSF certificate directory (relative to CSF install directory)

    This field applies only if the Client Services Framework (CSF) requires you to import security certificates to authenticate with LDAP, web conferencing, and CCMCIP. For most deployments, you do not need to import security certificates.

    You only need to import security certificates for CSF to trust in the following scenarios:

    • You use a signed certificate for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Tomcat instead of the default self-signed certificate.
    • You want CSF to connect to the LDAP server via LDAPS.
    • You use a signed certificate for Cisco Unity Connection Tomcat instead of the default self-signed certificate.

    If you must specify a value, specify the directory that contains the security certificates as an absolute path. If you do not specify a directory, CSF looks for the certificates in the default directory and trusts any certificates in that location.

    Default Setting: Not set

    Credentials source for voicemail service If user credentials for the voicemail service are shared with another service, select the appropriate service. The user credentials automatically synchronize from the service that you select.

    Default Setting: Not set

    Tip   

    If this value is set to Not set, users need to enter their credentials in Jabber for iPad.

    Credentials source for web conferencing service If user credentials for the meeting service are shared with another service, select the appropriate service. The user credentials automatically synchronize from the service that you select.

    Default Setting: Not set

    Tip   

    If this value is set to Not set, users need to enter their credentials manually in the application.

    Maximum message size Enter the allowed size limit for instant messages, in bytes.
    Allow cut & paste in instant messages Check this check box to allow users to cut and paste in their chat messages.

    Default Setting: On

    Step 3   Select Save.

    Starting Essential Services

    Start the following Cisco Unified Presence Extensible Communication Platform (XCP) services on all Cisco Unified Presence nodes in all clusters:

    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Authentication Service
    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Connection Manager

    You may also start these Unified Presence XCP services on all Unified Presence nodes in all clusters, depending on what features you want to make available:

    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Text Conference Manager, for group chat
    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP SIP Federation Connection Manager, to support federation services with third-party applications that use SIP
    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP XMPP Federation Connection Manager, to support federation services with third-party applications that use XMPP
    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Counter Aggregator, if you want system administrators to be able to view statistical data on XMPP components
    • Cisco Unified Presence XCP Message Archiver, for automatic archiving of all instant messages

    Note


    Read the documentation for any feature that you are setting up before you turn on the related services. Additional work might be required.


    Additionally, perform this procedure in Cisco Unified Communications Manager:

    Procedure

      Firewall Requirements

      Configure hardware firewalls to allow the ports to carry traffic for the application. Hardware firewalls are network devices that provide protection from unwanted traffic at an organizational level. This table lists the ports required for the deployments of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence. These ports must be open on all firewalls for the application to function properly.

      Port Protocol Description
      Inbound
      16384-32766 UDP Receives Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) media streams for video and audio. You set up these ports in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
      Outbound
      69, then Ephemeral TFTP Connects to the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server to download the TFTP file
      80 and 6970 HTTP Connects to services such as Cisco WebEx Messenger for meetings and Cisco Unity Connection for voicemail features

      If no port is specified in a TFTP server address, Cisco Jabber for iPad will try port 6970 to obtain phone setup files and dial rule files.

      5060 UDP/TCP Provides Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) call signaling
      5061 TCP Provides secure SIP call signaling
      8443 TCP Connects to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager IP Phone (CCMCIP) server to get a list of currently assigned devices

      VMRest

      HTTPS

      Connects to Cisco Unity Connection to retrieve and manage voice messages.
      636 LDAPS Connects to the secure LDAP server for contact searches

      Setting Up Directory Search, IM, and Availability

      Review the following topics to set up IM and availability.

      Setting Up LDAP Servers

      Perform this task in Cisco Unified Presence.

      Before You Begin

      Do the following:

      • Set up the LDAP attribute map
      • Obtain the hostnames or IP addresses of the LDAP directories
      Procedure
        Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > LDAP Server.
        Note

        Step 3   Enter the LDAP server name.
        Step 4   Enter an IP address or an FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) of the LDAP server.
        Step 5   Specify the port number used by the LDAP server. The defaults are:
        • TCP—389
        • TLS—636

        Check the LDAP directory documentation or the LDAP directory configuration for this information.

        Step 6   Select TCP or TLS for the protocol type.
        Step 7   Select Save.

        Setting Up Secure Connection Between Cisco Unified Presence and LDAP Directory

        Before You Begin

        Enable SSL for LDAP on Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and upload the LDAP directory certificate to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

        Procedure
          Step 1   Select Cisco Unified OS Administration > Security > Certificate Management.
          Step 2   Select Upload Certificate.
          Step 3   Select directory–trust from the Certificate Name menu.
          Step 4   Browse and select the LDAP server certificate from your local computer.
          Step 5   Select Upload File.
          Step 6   Restart the Tomcat service from the CLI using this command: utils service restart Cisco Tomcat

          Creating LDAP Profiles and Adding Users

          Cisco Jabber for iPad connects to an LDAP server on a per-search basis. If the connection to the primary server fails, the application attempts the first backup LDAP server, and if it is not available, it then attempts to connect to the second backup server. The application also periodically attempts to return to the primary LDAP server. If an LDAP query is in process when the system fails over, the next available server completes this LDAP query.

          Before You Begin

          Do the following:

          • Specify the LDAP server names and addresses
          • You must create the LDAP profile before you can add Cisco Jabber for iPad users to the profile.
          Procedure
            Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > LDAP Profile.
            Note   

            LDAP profile configuration is done in Cisco Unified Communications Manager starting with Release 9.0.

            Step 2   Select Add New.
            Step 3   Enter information in the fields.
            Field Setting
            Name Enter the profile name limited to 128 characters.
            Description Optional. Enter a description limited to 128 characters.
            Bind Distinguished Name

            Optional. Enter the administrator-level account information limited to 128 characters. This is the distinguished name with which you bind for authenticated bind.

            The syntax for this field depends on the type of LDAP server that you deploy. For details, see the LDAP server documentation.

            Anonymous Bind Optional. Uncheck this option to use the user credentials to sign in to this LDAP server.

            For non-anonymous bind operations, Cisco Jabber for iPad receives one set of credentials. If configured, these credentials must be valid on the backup LDAP servers.

            Note   

            If you check Anonymous Bind, users can sign in anonymously to the LDAP server with read-only access. Anonymous access might be possible on your directory server, but Cisco does not recommend it. Instead, create a user with read-only privileges on the same directory where the users to be searched are located. Specify the directory number and password in Cisco Unified Presence for the application to use.

            Password Optional. Enter the LDAP bind password limited to 128 characters. This is the password for the administrator-level account that you provided in the Bind Distinguished Name string to allow users to access this LDAP server.
            Confirm Password Reenter the password you entered in Password.
            Search Context Optional. Enter the location where you set up all the LDAP users. This location is a container or directory. The name is limited to 256 characters. Use only a single OU/LDAP search context.
            Recursive Search Optional. Check to perform a recursive search of the directory starting at the search base.
            Primary LDAP Server and Backup LDAP Server Select the primary LDAP server and optional backup servers.
            Add Users to Profile Select the button to open the Find and List Users window. Select Find to populate the search results fields. Alternatively, search for a specific user and select Find. To add users to this profile, select the users, and select Add Selected.
            Step 4   Select Save.

            Setting Up the LDAP Attribute Map

            Before You Begin

            Set up the LDAP attribute map on Cisco Unified Presence where you enter LDAP attributes for your environment and map them to the given Cisco Jabber for iPad attributes.

            If you want to use LDAP to store your employee profile photos, use a third-party extension to upload the photo files to the LDAP server or extend the LDAP directory server schema by other means to create an attribute that the LDAP server can associate with an image.

            For Cisco Jabber for iPad to display profile photos, in the LDAP attribute map, map the Jabber for iPad "Photo" value to the appropriate LDAP attribute.


            Note


            • Contact photos may be cropped when they are displayed in Jabber for iPad.
            • The UPC UserID setting in the LDAP attribute map must match the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user ID. This mapping allows a user to add a contact from LDAP to the contact list in Cisco Jabber for iPad. This field associates the LDAP user with the corresponding user on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence.
            • You can map an LDAP field to only one Cisco Jabber field.

            Procedure
              Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > Settings.

              Select Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence > Application > Legacy Client > Settings if you are using Release 9.0.

              Step 2   Select a supported LDAP server from Directory Server Type.

              The LDAP server populates the LDAP attribute map with Cisco Jabber user fields and LDAP user fields.

              Step 3   If necessary, make modifications to the LDAP field to match your specific LDAP directory.

              The values are common to all LDAP server hosts. Note the following LDAP directory product mappings:

              Product LastName Mapping UserID Mapping
              Microsoft Active Directory SN sAMAccountName
              OpenLDAP SN uid
              Step 4   Select Save.
              Tip   

              If you want to stop using the current attribute mappings and use the factory default settings, select Restore Defaults.


              Indexing Active Directory Attributes

              Index these Active Directory attributes:

              • sAMAccountName
              • displayName
              • mail
              • msRTCSIP-PrimaryUserAddress

              In addition, index any attributes that are used for contact resolution. For example, you might need to index these attributes:

              • telephoneNumber
              • Any other directory phone number attributes that are used to find contacts, depending on the value of the DisableSecondaryNumberLookups key
              • ipPhone, if this attribute is used in your environment

              Specifying LDAP Authentication Settings

              The LDAP authentication feature enables Cisco Unified Communications Manager to authenticate user passwords against the corporate LDAP directory.


              Note


              LDAP authentication does not apply to the passwords of application users; Cisco Unified Communications Manager authenticates application users in its internal database.


              Before You Begin

              Turn on LDAP synchronization in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

              Procedure
                Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration > System > LDAP > LDAP Authentication.
                Step 2   Check Use LDAP Authentication for End Users.
                Step 3   Specify the LDAP authentication settings.
                Step 4   Specify the LDAP server hostname or IP address and port number.
                Note   

                To use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to communicate with the LDAP directory, check Use SSL.

                Step 5   Select Save.
                Tip   

                If you set up LDAP over SSL, upload the LDAP directory certificate to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


                Setting Up LDAP Synchronization for User Provisioning

                Perform this task in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

                LDAP synchronization uses the Cisco Directory Synchronization (DirSync) tool on Cisco Unified Communications Manager to synchronize information (either manually or periodically) from a corporate LDAP directory. When you turn on the DirSync service, Cisco Unified Communications Manager automatically provisions users from the corporate directory. Cisco Unified Communications Manager still uses its local database, but turns off its facility to allow you to create user accounts. You use the LDAP directory interface to create and manage user accounts.

                Before You Begin
                • Ensure that you install the LDAP server before you attempt the LDAP-specific configuration on Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
                • Understand that LDAP synchronization does not apply to application users Cisco Unified Communications Manager. You must manually provision application users in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration interface.
                • Activate and start the Cisco DirSync service on Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
                Procedure
                  Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration > System > LDAP > LDAP System.
                  Step 2   Select Add New.
                  Step 3   Set up the LDAP server type and attribute.
                  Step 4   Select Enable Synchronizing from LDAP Server.
                  Step 5   Click Save.
                  Step 6   Select Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration > System > LDAP > LDAP Directory.
                  Step 7   Select Add New.
                  Step 8   Set up these items:
                  • LDAP directory account settings
                  • User attributes to be synchronized
                  • Synchronization schedule
                  • LDAP server hostname or IP address and port number
                  Step 9   Check Use SSL if you want to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to communicate with the LDAP directory.
                  Step 10   Click Save.
                  Tip   
                  • If you configure LDAP over SSL, upload the LDAP directory certificate onto Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
                  • See the LDAP directory content in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager SRND for information on the account synchronization mechanism for specific LDAP products and general best practices for LDAP synchronization.

                  Turning IM Policy On or Off

                  This procedure describes how to turn on or off IM features for all IM applications in a Cisco Unified Presence cluster. IM features are turned on by default in Cisco Unified Presence.


                  Caution


                  If you turn off IM features in Cisco Unified Presence, all group chat functionality (ad hoc and persistent chat) will not work in Cisco Unified Presence. Cisco recommends that you do not turn on the Cisco UP XCP Text Conference service or set up an external database for persistent chat in Cisco Unified Presence.


                  Procedure
                    Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Messaging > Settings.
                    Step 2   Select Enable instant messaging.
                    Note   
                    • If you turn on this setting, users can send and receive IMs.
                    • If you turn off this setting, users cannot send or receive IMs. Users can use IM only for availability and phone operations.
                    Step 3   Select Save.
                    Step 4   Restart the Cisco UP XCP Router service.

                    Specifying IM Policy Settings

                    You can specify IM policy settings by following these steps.

                    Procedure
                      Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Presence > Settings.
                      Step 2   Turn on or off automatic authorization for viewing availability.
                      If you want to… Do this…
                      Turn on automatic authorization so that Unified Presence automatically authorizes all availability subscription requests it receives from Jabber for iPad users in the local enterprise Check Allow users to view the availability of other users without being prompted for approval.
                      Turn off automatic authorization so that Unified Presence sends all availability subscriptions to where the user is prompted to authorize or reject the subscription Uncheck Allow users to view the availability of other users without being prompted for approval.
                      Step 3   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Messaging > Settings.
                      Step 4   Turn on or off these global settings:
                      If you want to… Do this…
                      Globally turn off instant messaging services Uncheck Enable instant messaging.
                      Globally turn on offline instant messaging Uncheck Suppress Offline Instant Messaging.
                      Step 5   Select Save.
                      Step 6   Restart the Cisco UP XCP Router service.

                      Setting Up URL Strings to Fetch Contact Pictures from Web Server

                      You can set up a parameterized URL string in the Photo field in the LDAP attribute map so that Cisco Jabber for iPad can fetch pictures from a web server instead of from the LDAP server. The URL string must contain an LDAP attribute with a query value containing a piece of data that uniquely identifies the photo of the user. Cisco recommends that you use the User ID attribute. However, you can use any LDAP attribute whose query value contains a piece of data that uniquely identifies the photo of the user.

                      Cisco recommends that you use %%<userID>%% as the substitution string. For example:

                      • http://mycompany.example.com/photo/std/%%uid%%.jpg
                      • http://mycompany.example.com/photo/std/%%sAMAccountName%%.jpg

                      You must include the double percent symbols in this string, and they must enclose the name of the LDAP attribute to substitute. Cisco Jabber for iPad removes the percent symbols and replaces the parameter inside with the results of an LDAP query for the user whose photo it resolves.

                      For example, if a query result contains the attribute "uid" with a value of "johndoe," then a template such as http://mycompany.com/photos/%%uid%%.jpg creates the URL http://mycompany.com/photos/johndoe.jpg. Cisco Jabber for iPad attempts to fetch the photo.

                      This substitution technique works only if Cisco Jabber for iPad can use the results of the query and can insert it into the template you specify above to construct a working URL that fetches a JPG photo. If the web server that hosts the photos in a company requires a POST (for example, the name of the user is not in the URL) or uses some other cookie name for the photo instead of the username, this technique does not work.


                      Note


                      • Limit a URL length to 50 characters.
                      • Cisco Jabber for iPad does not support authentication for this query; the photo must be retrievable from the web server without credentials.

                      Setting Up CTI Gateway Profiles

                      Create the computer telephony interface (CTI) gateway profiles in Cisco Unified Presence Administration and assign primary and backup servers for redundancy.

                      Before You Begin

                      Review the following:

                      • Specify the CTI gateway names and addresses by going to Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > CTI Gateway Server before you can select the servers as primary or backup servers in this procedure.
                      • Cisco Unified Presence dynamically creates a TCP-based CTI gateway profile based on the hostname of Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Before using this profile, verify that Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Jabber for iPad can ping Cisco Unified Communications Manager by the DNS name. If they cannot contact the server, you need to add the IP address of Cisco Unified Communications Manager by going to Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > CTI Gateway Server. You do not need to delete the host profiles that are created automatically.
                      • If you previously set up Cisco Unified Communications Manager with an IP address through the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration > System > Server menu, Cisco Unified Presence dynamically creates a TCP-based CTI gateway profile based on that address. The fields you see by going to Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > CTI Gateway Profile are automatically populated, and you need to only add users to the default CTI TCP profile that is created (See step 3.).
                      Procedure
                        Step 1   Select Cisco Unified Presence Administration > Application > Cisco Unified Personal Communicator > CTI Gateway Profile.
                        Step 2   Search for the CTI gateway profile in the Find and List CTI Gateway Profiles window.

                        If the CTI gateway profile is found, no further action is required from you.

                        Step 3   If the CTI gateway profile is not found, select Add New.
                        Step 4   Enter the following information into the fields.
                        Field Setting
                        Name Enter the profile name.
                        Description Enter a profile description.
                        Primary CTI Gateway Server and Backup CTI Gateway Server Select a primary server and a backup server.
                        Make this the Default CTI Gateway Profile for the System

                        Check this option if you want any new users that are added to the system to be placed automatically into this default profile.

                        Users who are already synchronized to Unified Presence from Unified Communications Manager are not added to the default profile. However, once the default profile is created, any users synchronized after that are added to the default profile.

                        Step 5   Select Add Users to Profile.

                          Install a device-specific Cisco Options Package (COP) file on all Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers to make Cisco Jabber for iPad available as a device.

                          General information about installing COP files is available in the Software Upgrades chapter of the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide for your release at http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​en/​US/​products/​sw/​voicesw/​ps556/​prod_​maintenance_​guides_​list.html.


                          Note


                          The following Cisco Unified Communications Manager releases already contain the Tablet COP file:

                          • 7.1.5.35113-1 and above
                          • 8.5.1.16090-1 and above
                          • 8.6.2.23057-1 and above
                          • 9.1.1.10000-11 and above

                          Installation of the Tablet COP file is not required for these releases.


                          Important:

                          Perform this procedure at a time of low usage because it may interrupt service.

                          Procedure
                            Step 1   Download the device COP file for iPad at http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​cisco/​software/​navigator.html?mdfid=280443139&flowid=29241.
                            Step 2   Place the COP file on an FTP or SFTP server that is accessible from your Unified CM servers.
                            Step 3   Install the COP file on the Publisher server in your Unified CM cluster by following these steps:
                            1. Select Cisco Unified OS Administration in the Navigation drop-down list and then select Go.
                            2. Select Software Upgrades > Install/Upgrade.
                            3. Specify the location of the COP file and provide the required information.

                              For more information, see the online help.

                            4. Select Next.
                            5. Select the device COP file.
                            6. Select Next.
                            7. Follow the instructions on the screen.
                            8. Select Next.

                              Wait for the process to be completed. This process may take some time.

                            9. Reboot Unified CM at a time of low usage.
                            10. Restart the Cisco Tomcat service on the Unified CM server.

                              This step, which clears the Tomcat image cache, is required for the device icon to display properly on the device list page in Unified CM.

                            11. Enter this command from the CLI: utils service restart Cisco Tomcat
                            12. Let the system fully return to service.
                            Important:

                            To avoid interruptions in service, ensure that each server has returned to active service before you perform this procedure on another server.

                            Step 4   Install the COP file on each Subscriber server in the cluster. Use the same process you use for the Publisher, including rebooting the server.

                                          Step 5   Enter the following information:
                                          Field Description
                                          Inbox Folder Enter the name of the folder on the mailstore server in which new messages are stored. Only change this value if the mailstore server uses a different folder name from the default folder.

                                          Default folder: INBOX

                                          Trash Folder Enter the name of the folder on the mailstore server in which deleted messages are stored. Only change this value if the mailstore server uses a different folder name from the default folder.

                                          If you configured voicemail parameters in Product Specific Configuration on Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Jabber for iPad will use that configuration and ignore the voicemail settings in the Cisco Unified Presence server.


                                          Setting Up Connect on Demand VPN

                                          Cisco Jabber for iPad supports two ways to enable the Connect on Demand VPN feature.

                                          If your Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers are configured with a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), the Connect on Demand VPN feature is enabled or disabled using Cisco Jabber for iPad. If your Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers are configured with an IP address, configure the On Demand VPN URL parameter to enable the Connect on Demand VPN feature.


                                          Note


                                          Cisco recommends that Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager be deployed with a FQDN. Use of the Connect on Demand VPN feature requires no additional Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager configuration when deployed with a FQDN.


                                          Before You Begin
                                          • Determine if your Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers use a Fully Qualified Domain Name or IP address for network identification.
                                          • Identify a URL that is set up to launch VPN on demand. Enter the URL in the Cisco AnyConnect client. Cisco Jabber for iPad triggers VPN on demand if a DNS query on this domain fails. Use one of the following methods:
                                            • Configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager to be accessed through a domain name and not an IP address. Ensure this domain name is not resolvable outside the firewall. Include this domain in the Connect If Needed list in the Connect On Demand Domain List of the Cisco AnyConnect client connection.
                                            • If you cannot use a domain name to access Cisco Unified Communications Manager or cannot make the DNS lookup of that domain name fail from outside the firewall, set the parameter in the following procedure to a nonexistent domain. This nonexistent domain would cause a DNS query to fail when the user is inside or outside the firewall. Add that domain to the Always Connect list in the Connect On Demand Domain List of the Cisco AnyConnect client connection. The URL must include only the domain name. Do not include a protocol or a path. See the following example for more information:
