Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for more information on document conventions.
Q. Is there a method to mass import records into the Global Phone Book so all agents have access to it?
A. There is no method to enter entries into the Global Phone Book in bulk.
A. The Global Phone Book is stored in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) database. The path is Spanlink Communications > Company > (LCC name) > Phone Book.
Q. How does the Global Phone Book synchronize? (A side and B side in IPCC Enterprise or HA NODES in IPCC Express)
A. Directory Services take care of synchronizing databases.
A. Logs can be collected for normal logs and debug traces (set to the DEBUG level) from Cisco Agent Desktop and Cisco Desktop Agent applications.
A. Cisco Desktop Agent allows the administrator to edit the Global Phone Book. The agent cannot edit the Global Phone Book. In turn, the agents can edit the Employee Phone Book, but the administrator cannot. There are also check boxes on the page that do not allow the Phone Books for agent use completely, and do not allow the use of Employee Phone Books by agents, if desired.
A. Currently, there is no method you can use to edit the Global Phone Books other than simple manual entry.
A. In earlier versions, Cisco Agent Desktop loaded the Global Phone Book from LDAP each time the dial pad was launched. Current versions load the Global Phone Books once and store it in memory to avoid delays.
Q. Can the Global Phone Book be linked back into the Cisco CallManager Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) user list? For example, Corporate Directory on the IP phones?
Q. How can you make the Global Phone Book in Cisco Agent Desktop available while Cisco Agent Desktop agent is on the Integrated Contact Distribution (ICD) extension?
A. Cisco Agent Desktop Global Phone Book is available through the transfer and conference dialogs.
A. Size is only limited by memory available to Cisco Agent Destkop.
