You can log in to Cisco Unified CCX Administration as either an end user or application user.
An end user is a user that is configured on the Unified CM with Administrator capability in Unified CCX. An application user is a user that is configured during the installation of Unified CCX having administrator capability by default.
If you log in as an end user, you can access the following applications that display in the Navigation drop-down list box in top right corner of the Administration menu bar:
Cisco Unified CCX Administration
Cisco Unified CCX Serviceability
Cisco Desktop Administrator
If you log in as an application user, you can seamlessly traverse between the above-mentioned Unified CCX web applications as well as the Cisco Unified Serviceability without logging in again.
An application user can login to these four Unified CCX web applications even when Unified CM is down.
You can access the following platform-based web applications using the platform user credentials as configured during installation of Unified CCX:
Cisco Unified Operating System Administration
Disaster Recovery System
To access these applications from
Cisco Unified CCX Administration, you must first choose the desired application from
the Navigation drop-down list box in the upper right corner and click
Unified CCX configuration web pages
When you choose any menu and submenu option from the Unified
CCX Administration menu bar, a configuration or administration web page opens.
Use this web page to continue your configuration or administration task.
In some cases you will perform your configuration or
administration task on this one web page.
In other cases, the web page that first opens when you choose
a submenu item leads to a series of web pages. For example, the Unified CM
Telephony Call Control Group Configuration web page contains both a tool bar in
the top with a few icons that link to other web pages and a configuration area.
The following table describes the
Refresh All button and the
Refresh icons that are found on several Unified
CCX web pages.

Unified CCX 10.0(1) does not allow special characters in the user-interface fields, except for the Password field, because security policies restrict their use.
In Unified CCX Administration web interface, advanced configuration with
Show More and
Show Less options exists. On the applicable
pages, all configuration details can be displayed or minimised based on user
preferences and requirements.
A page by default displays fewer parameters. Parameters
configured with default values and not requiring modification or user input are
now available in the advanced configuration section. You can access this
advanced configuration section by clicking the
Show More button at the bottom of the page. When
you click this button, the extra parameters become visible and the button

Show Less, the page reverts to its
original list of parameters.
If you are using Unified CCX with Cisco Contact Center Gateway
solution, see the
Cisco IPCC Gateway Deployment Guide for Cisco Unified
ICME/CCE/CCX. The instructions for configuring Unified CCX with that
solution differs from what is described in this guide. The Unified Gateway
provides for the integration of the Unified ICME system with Unified CCX by way
of Unified Gateway. See the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise installation and
upgrade guides available at
for detailed information. The Unified Gateway is a Peripheral
Gateway (PG), which you configure on the Unified ICME software.
On the top left toolbar of many web pages, you will find an
Add New icon and the same
Add New will also be displayed as a button at
the bottom of the web page.
For example, the Unified CM Telephony Call Control Group
Configuration web page contains
Add New and
Refresh All icons on the top left toolbar and
the same are displayed as buttons at the bottom of the web page. When you click
Add New icon or button, another Unified CM
Telephony Call Control Group Configuration web page opens. Use this area to add
a new Unified CM Telephony Call Control Group.
Many web pages contain icons or buttons that perform a
variety of functions. For example, the
Refresh All button on the
Unified CM Telephony Call Control
Group Configuration web page refreshes all the
Unified CM Telephony call control
group configurations in the Unified CCX server.
A few web pages (for example,
Subsystems > Database > Parameters
page) also contain a
Reset to Default icon and button. This allows
you to revert to the software set defaults for each parameter on this page.
In Unified CCX, two wizards are available in the main menu:
the Application Wizard and the RmCm Wizard.
To improve the usability and configuration process, these
wizards take you through the configuration pages in the required order and help
ease the configuration process for these two features. You can access these
wizards from a new main menu option called
