Set up any additional features on your test device. These features are optional.
See Feature setup.
After you verify that all features work on your test device, set up individual users and devices in bulk.
See Bulk configuration.
Provide users with instructions for setting up their Cisco Jabber clients.
See User instructions.
Add user device
Before You Begin
Set up and test voicemail
for the extension you will assign to this device, following standard procedures
for any device. Make sure you set up the voicemail number as a regular phone
number so users can call in to the voicemail system using an Enterprise VoIP or
Verify that the Device
Pool that you will assign to the Cisco Jabber device is associated with a
region that includes support for the G.711 codec.
Determine whether you want
to enable or disable usage and error tracking for each user. For information,

Application Dial Rules URL field:
For Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.6 and later, leave this field blank.
If you are using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.5
or earlier and you want Cisco Jabber devices to apply Application
Dial Rules, you must specify the path to these dial rules files,
including the filenames.
Use the following format:
tftp://ip address of TFTP
server/pathname to the XML file/XML
If your directory server requires authentication, enter LDAP
username and password; otherwise leave these fields blank.
These credentials can be for a single read-only account for
all users. These credentials are sent to the client in clear text in the TFTP
file. Therefore, we strongly recommend that LDAP directory administrators
generate a directory query account that has no other rights.
Create this account with a value that is low enough to ensure that its
credentials are semi-public (available to anyone on the local network).
Enter any designated emergency numbers in the
Emergency Numbers field.
You can enter a comma-separated list of additional emergency
numbers that will always be dialed direct for this user. These numbers must
contain only numerical digits. No spaces, dashes, or other characters are
Emergency numbers as defined on the device are always dialed
direct using the mobile network (never dialed using Enterprise VoIP) to allow
the location of the caller to be sent automatically to emergency services
personnel where this service is available. Direct-dial numbers can be useful
for users who frequently travel to countries other than the country of their
mobile network provider, if the emergency number differs depending on the users' location, or if your company
has a dedicated security number.
Enter your domain in the
Domain Name field if the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager setting in
System > Server
is a hostname that does not include the domain name.
Enter a list of up to three SSIDs separated by forward slashes (/) in the
Preset Wi-Fi Networks field.
Cisco Jabber attempts to connect to Cisco Unified
Communications Manager only after the mobile device is connected to an SSID that you
list here, or one that the user selects in the client. Cisco Jabber must be
able to reach Cisco Unified Communications Manager when it is connected to
these SSIDs. Typically, these are your corporate Wi-Fi SSIDs. SSIDs can be
up to 32 characters long and are case-sensitive.

in Cisco Unified Communications Manager for the Forward All and other settings.
Set the No Answer Ring Duration to 24 seconds to allow time for
Cisco Jabber to ring before calls go to voicemail.
See general restrictions in the online help in Cisco Unified
Navigate to the
End User page for the user.
Associate the Cisco Dual Mode for Android device that you just
created for this user.
The device should now appear in the
Controlled Devices box in either the
Device Information or
Device Associations section (depending on your release of Unified CM).
If this user has a desk phone, select the desk phone as the
Primary User Device.
If the device is a standalone device that runs without an
associated desk phone, you may need to enter other information that is standard
for all devices in your system.
What to Do Next
Verify that your configuration works:
Make sure the mobile device is
connected to the corporate network. Verify that you can access a web page on your
corporate intranet using the browser on your device.
Launch Cisco Jabber and
complete the setup wizard. Enter the IP address of your TFTP server (generally
the IP address of your Cisco Unified Communications Manager server) and the
Device Name (BOTXXXX) of the device you just added.
Wait for a notice that the
device is registered. The Cisco Jabber icon in the status bar turns black
when the device is connected to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Test basic telephony
features in Cisco Jabber, such as the ability to make, hold, and transfer
Changes to user device
If you change settings on the Cisco Unified CM Administration pages (for example, LDAP, call control, dial plan), Cisco Jabber reregisters after you click Save and then click Apply Config. The application reregisters again 30 seconds later. If the user is on a call when the application reregisters, the call drops and the application restarts automatically.
If the device is out of coverage at the time you apply the changes, it is updated when it reregisters to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
If you delete the device from Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Jabber drops any active calls and after several reregister attempts the user receives an error message that it cannot connect. Client information is not erased from the device. To remove all client information (for example, if the employee leaves the company), use the appropriate device management solution, such as Active Sync.
To delete a device, see the “Deleting a Phone” topic in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide for your release at
The settings in the
Product Specific Configuration Layout section of the device
configuration page are not handled as individual columns in the exported
spreadsheet. Instead, all of those settings, and the information they contain,
appear as XML code in a single cell for each device. If you edit user-specific
information in this cell, do so cautiously.
After you finish setting up devices in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, give your users the following information:
Instructions for connecting the mobile device to the corporate Wi-Fi. This
process is independent of Cisco Jabber.
Users must perform the initial setup of Cisco Jabber for Android within the corporate network.
Direction to download and install Cisco Jabber from the Android
The device name of their Cisco Dual Mode for Android device, for
The IP address of the TFTP server.
The email address to which users should send problem reports (troubleshooting logs).
(If applicable) Credentials required to access the corporate
directory. The username should be in the format
email@example.com or the full DN format,
(If applicable) Information required to access the corporate network remotely, using the secure connect feature. This information includes information such as the gateway address, group names, user ID, and if applicable, user password.
