CiscoPrimeCollaborationProvisioningOverview
This document provides information on features of Cisco Prime Collaboration 11.0 and 11.1.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning provides a scalable web-based solution to manage your company’s
next-generation communication services. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning manages IP communication
endpoints and services in an integrated IP telephony, video, voicemail, and unified messaging environment
that includes Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express,
Cisco Unity Express, Cisco Unity Connection systems, and analog gateways.
Note
• Throughout this document, any reference to Cisco Unified Communications Manager can also be
understood to refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager, unless explicitly noted.
• Video provisioning is supported for endpoints registered to Cisco Unified Communications Manager
only. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning does not support video endpoints registered to Video
Communication Server (VCS).
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning provides the following features:
• Provisioning for initial deployments and implementations, and then remains deployed to provide
ongoing operational provisioning and activation services for individual users.
• A single, consolidated view of users across the organization. It provides a set of business-level
management abstractions, which are policy-driven by using automation, for managing user services
across the Cisco Unified Communications applications.
• Template capability, which permits defining standard configurations that can be reused for new sites
or location deployments. Batch provisioning permits the rollout of large numbers of users at the same
time.
• Administrators can configure policy at various levels to determine who can do delegated management,
for whom that delegation applies, how business-level services apply to Cisco Collaboration Systems,
and which types of users are permitted to order which standard services.
By using this policy and standard configuration approach, you can provision and activate user services
easily. At the same time, it retains the overall ability to manage and provide services that use the
underlying Cisco Unified Communications applications.
Refer Cisco Prime Collaboration 11.X Data Sheet for more details on the features and benefits of Cisco
Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x

Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Overview
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning permits standard services (for example an endpoint, line, or voice
mail) to be ordered for a user (the owner of the individual endpoint, line, or voice mail). You can also order
Cisco Jabber Services for Tablet, Desktop, Android, BlackBerry, and iPhone. Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning processes all changes to the underlying Cisco Unified Communications applications as service
requests or orders.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning creates an order to make a user-level change (to an endpoint, a line,
and so on), or an IP communications-level infrastructure change (such as provisioning a new calling search
space or route pattern). All orders in the system are tracked and viewable, both across orders and by username
or ID. The order records show who initiated the order, the times of various process steps, and what the order
contained.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning allows delegation of the order management capability so that requests
for service additions, changes, or deletions can be done without requiring an underlying knowledge of the
voice applications that are delivering those services. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning provides the
same service management experience, regardless of the technology delivering the Cisco Unified
Communications services.
Common Terminologies in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning
• Device—Includes all applications such as Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Express, Cisco Instant Messaging and Presence (IM&P), and Cisco Unity
Connection. Also includes infrastructure components such as ISR Gateway devices, Cisco IOS Router.
• Processor—A proxy for each instance of a device.
◦A Call Processor is a proxy for each instance of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express.
◦A Unified Message Processor is a proxy for each instance of Cisco Unity Express, and Cisco
Unity Connection.
◦A Unified Presence Processor is a proxy for each instance of IM and Presence.
• Endpoint—Includes all active software and hardware voice, video, and collaboration devices with
which the users interact. For example, phones (99xx, 88xx, 79xx, 78xx), tablets, Telepresence devices,
Cisco Jabber clients, personal Telepresence units (DX series, EX series, MX series, SX series), mobile
devices running Cisco Jabber, and so on.
• User—A person for whom an active IP Telephony service has been enabled. A user in Prime
Collaboration Provisioning also represents an entity that can access Prime Collaboration Provisioning
to perform various activities.
• Service—Service is the settings and integration needed to perform a series of functions expected by
the user. For example, providing an endpoint service implies that the user will be able to perform dial
out, ring, allow answering, have speed dials, forward to voicemail, transfer, conference and so on.
• Domains—Domains are groupings of users. One or more system users can be authorized to manage
services for users within the Domain. In addition, rules or policies may be set on a Domain; those rules
and policies will apply to services for users in that Domain. Common policies can also be applied on
operations within a Domain. A domain administrator handles moves, adds, changes, and deletes (MACD)
for users in that domain. Advanced Provisioning supports assigning individual administrators to
individual groups.
• Service Areas—Service Areas are groupings within a Domain that are used to structure and manage
the required IP telephony and messaging services across geographic, organizational, or technological

Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Overview

boundaries. The Service Area typically acts as a service offering location, or site, and provides a template
mechanism that determines provisioning attribute values used during order processing. A Service Area
also handles Cisco Unified CM partitioning and class of service by directing which location, device
pool and route partition assignments to use for any user provisioned into that Service Area.
• User roles—User roles provide policy enforcement, controlling which products and services are allowed
to be ordered for different types of users such as contractors, executives or sales persons. They are also
used in a filtering process that controls what choices are presented to order administrators at order time.
The User Role setup also determines what services are ordered and which service templates are applied
for a given user type during the Automatic Service Provisioning process. An administrator may create
many User Roles to define different levels of services. The default user roles are: Employee, Executive
and Room.
• Service Templates—Service Templates are a convenience for administrators setting up devices or
ordering services for an end-user. Service Templates allow small or large amounts of settings to be
collected into a single template which can be applied to endpoints or services. This saves time over
setting many individual attributes and provides accuracy to prevent missed attributes or typos in attribute
fields. Service Templates can leverage keywords and keyword truncation to customize line text displayed
on endpoints. Service Templates contain provisioning attributes for a service and enables you to
configure service attribute settings using provisioning attributes. Provisioning attributes are configuration
settings that are applied to a service during activation.

Managing Licenses
To use Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you must have the Provisioning Image license and one or more
scale licenses. The image license must be present or the product will remain in the evaluation mode. Scale
licenses add to the number of phones you can provision.
Click View detailed feature information (go to Administration > License Management) to view the Feature
name, Available count, Used count and Expiry.
In Prime Collaboration Provisioning Standard, the delegation, workflow, template, and nbi features are listed
under unavailable features. When you purchase a license for Prime Collaboration Provisioning Advanced,
these features will appear in the valid features list.
Note
If you have a distributed installation, when the network connection between the two servers is lost and
then reestablished or when only the Provisioning database (the PostgreSQL database) server is restarted,
you will not be able to log into the Provisioning server, and sometimes a license error appears on the
Licensing Status Information page. The error message states that all features are unavailable. When this
occurs, restart the Provisioning services on the Application server.
• When you purchase a license for Prime Collaboration Provisioning for the first time, the image and scale
licenses may be concatenated into a single license file.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
19
Setting Up the Server
Licensing Process
• You can purchase Provisioning image license and one or more scale licenses to cover the number of
phone MAC addresses to be managed. Scale licenses are additive, up to 150,000 per one Provisioning
instance. The image license must be present or the product will remain in evaluation mode.
• The maximum scale of an instance of Prime Collaboration Provisioning is determined by the OVA size
installed.
• The Application Programmable Interface (API) for Provisioning is called the Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning Northbound Interface (Provisioning NBI). It is a set of web service, SOAP-based requests
covering the majority of Provisioning’s provisioning functionality. For detailed information see the
Provisioning NBI document.
If more than one image license file is found in the license directory, Prime Collaboration Provisioning will
pick and use the latest image license file (based on the file date).
When a license file is added through License Management page, Prime Collaboration Provisioning will validate
the license file and will display proper validation message if an error is encountered. Adding the license file
may fail in the following scenarios:
• Incorrect license file (Assurance license added for Provisioning application)
• Incorrect MAC address
• Incorrect version of license
• License file corrupted or modified
• License count mismatch
You can view the manually uploaded license files in the License Management page.
Licensing Process
The following process applies to new installations (and upgrades), and the scale licenses.
Procedure
Step 1
Obtain a Product Authorization Key (PAK)—The PAK is used to register Prime Collaboration Provisioning
on Cisco.com, and it contains resource limitations.
For each incremental license that you purchase, you will receive a PAK, and you must use that PAK to obtain
a license file.
Step 2
Obtain a license file—A license file is sent to you after you register the PAK on Cisco.com.
Import the license file to Prime Collaboration Provisioning from the License Management page. If Prime
Collaboration Provisioning is already installed and you are upgrading your license file, you must import the
license file with Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
Step 3
Adding a License File to Prime Collaboration Provisioning

Setting Up the Server
Cross-launch from Prime Collaboration Provisioning
Cross-launch from Prime Collaboration Provisioning
With Prime Collaboration 10.0 and above, you can access the Cisco Unified Communication functionality
through Prime Collaboration Provisioning, using the cross-launch feature of Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning redirects to the Cisco Unified CM user interface to provision the
infrastructure objects, upon clicking the infrastructure objects suitable for cross launching. Any user with
admin privilege can cross-launch from Prime Collaboration Provisioning to use Cisco Unified Communication
products. Cross-launch enables a smooth, continuous workflow if an administrator in Prime Collaboration
Provisioning requires access to the device user interface and wants to update a user configuration on the
product user interface of the configured devices such as Cisco Unified CM, Unity Connection, or IM and
Presence Services.
As an admin user, you can use cross-launch for the following purposes, from Prime Collaboration Provisioning:
• Cross-launching Devices from Infrastructure Configuration
• Cross-launching Serviceability from Infrastructure Setup. See Adding Devices.
• Cross-launching Related Links in Cisco Unified CM from User Provisioning. See Cross-launching
Related Links in CUCM and Unity Connection from User Provisioning.
Note
• Cross launching is available for users with administrator privileges only and is supported for Cisco
Unified CM, Unity Connection and Presence Services from 10.0 version onwards. If you add older
version (earlier than 10.0) of these devices in Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you will view nativelaunch links only, as an admin. Native-launch link is applicable to certain infrastructure objects that
can be configured in Cisco Unified CM through Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning user interface.
However, Presence Services, with versions earlier than 10.0, are not listed in the Infrastructure
Configuration view as native links were not supported in earlier versions of Prime Collaboration.
• Enabling Single Sign-On (SSO) for Cross-launch is not mandatory. If you have not enabled SSO
for cross-launch, you must specify the login credentials when you cross launch a processor (Cisco
Unified Communications Manager, Unity Connection, or Presence Services) for the first time by
continuing when you are prompted to add the website in the trusted security certificate list. However,
you need not login on successive attempts to cross launch the processor as long as the session is in
progress and running. To enable SSO, see Single Sign-On for Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
• Depending on browser settings, the cross-launch may open in new browser tab or a new window.
Refer to the browser compatibility in the product documentation of the specific application.
Single Sign-On for Prime Collaboration Provisioning
Prime Collaboration provides users with admin privileges to enable Single Sign-On (SSO) in Prime
Collaboration Provisioning using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).
Prime Collaboration does not support multiserver SAN certificates and end user SAML SSO.
You can enable SSO in Prime Collaboration Provisioning to cross-launch the following UC applications:
• Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
22
Setting Up the Server
Single Sign-On for Prime Collaboration Provisioning
• Cisco Unity Connection
• Cisco Unified Presence
Note
To cross-launch the UC applications without the need for login credentials, ensure that SSO for those
applications are configured on the same IdP server as that of Prime Collaboration.
Ensure that the following prerequisites are met before you enable SSO:
• At least one LDAP Administrative user exists in the system—through LDAP synchronization in Prime
Collaboration Provisioning.
For information on how to provide administrative privileges to a user in Prime Collaboration Provisioning,
see Managing Users chapter in the Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide.
• An Identity Provider (IdP) server that enables you to use SSO to access many other applications from
a single hosted application and a Service Provider. The Service Provider is a website that hosts the
applications.
Following are the supported third-party IdP servers:
• Open Access Manager (OpenAM)
• Ping Identity
• Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
• Oracle Identity Manager
For the steps to setup an IdP server, see the SAML SSO Deployment Guide for Cisco Unified
Communication Applications, Release 10.0(1).
• Download the Identity Provider metadata file from the IdP server and save it in your local system.
To enable Single Sign-on:
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Choose Administration -> Single Sign-on.
Click Enable SSO.
A warning message is displayed stating, Enabling SSO redirects you to the IdP server for authentication from
the next login. To access the application, you will need to be authenticated successfully.
Enable SSO is disabled if the above mentioned prerequisites are not
met.
Click Continue.
Follow the steps provided in the SSO wizard to enable Single Sign-On.
a) Locate the IdP metadata file from your local system and click Import IdP Metadata.
b) Click Download Trust Metadata file.
c) Launch the IdP server and import the downloaded Trust Metadata file.
Note
This is a manual step for Enabling SSO. You need to create a Circle of Trust (CoT) in the IdP
server and log out before you proceed with the SSO testing.
d) To run SSO Test Setup, select a username from the Valid Administrative Usernames drop-down.
Note
Using any other username to log in to the IdP server might lock the administrator account.

Single Sign-On for Prime Collaboration Provisioning
e) Click Run SSO Test to test the connectivity among the IdP server, Prime Collaboration Applications, and
Single Sign-On.
If you are prompted with an error message, Unable to do Single Sign-On or Federation:
• Manually log in to the IdP server using the end user credentials and check if the authentication is
successful.
• Verify if the Trust Metadata file is successfully uploaded in the IdP server.
• Verify if the Prime Collaboration server and the IdP server are part of the same Circle of Trust.
f) Click Finish.
Troubleshooting and Logs for SSO
• When you are logged out of the Prime Collaboration server while enabling SSO, it is recommended that
you close the browser and re-launch the Prime Collaboration application. Because, though your session
expires in Prime Collaboration server, the IdP server session might still be active.
• You can find the log file (ssosp*.log) for Prime Collaboration Provisioning in the /opt/cupm/sep/logs
directory.
• While enabling SSO, ensure that the hostname for Prime Collaboration is set and is part of DNS.
When IdP server is down, you can:
• Use the recovery URL- https://<PCserver IP address or host name that is part of DNS>/ssosp/local/login.
• Disable Single Sign-On from CMD Utility.
To disable SSO from CMD utility in Prime Collaboration applications:
• Log in to Prime Collaboration Provisioning server using SSH with port 22.
• Navigate to the/opt/cupm/sep/build/bin directory for Prime Collaboration Provisioning. Add <Operation>
and <Value> entries for cpcmconfigsso.sh file based on the table below:

Configuring Provisioning to Use LDAP and ACS Servers
You can configure Prime Collaboration Provisioning to use Access Control Server (ACS) or LDAP server to
authenticate, read, and synchronize.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
25
Setting Up the Server
Enabling SSL for LDAP Server
Note
• If you are adding an ACS server, you must add the Provisioning server as an ACS client (with
TACACS).
• To enable SSL for LDAP Server,
1 You must upload the LDAP server certificate. For the steps to upload LDAP certificate, refer
Upload SSL Certificate, on page 279
2 Go to the LDAP Server Configuration page and check the Use SSL check box.
• Before deleting an ACS or LDAP server, ensure that it is not assigned to a Domain. ACS or LDAP
servers are enabled on a per Domain basis. After adding an ACS or LDAP server, you must assign
it to a Domain. All the users then, in a Domain, will be authenticated against that ACS or LDAP
server. If an ACS or LDAP server is not associated to a Domain, all the users of that Domain are
authenticated locally. globaladmin is always authenticated locally.
• All authentication happens on the Active Directory/LDAP server when a domain has both local users
and external users (LDAP or ACS), and if the domain is integrated with Active Directory/LDAP.
• It is recommended not to have a domain that has a combination of both local users and external
users.
When configuring Provisioning to use Cisco Secure Access Control Server, be aware of the following:
• When you click the Test Connection button, only the connectivity of the IP address is checked.
• The Shared Secret Key is used only for authentication.
• If you entered an incorrect Shared Secret Key, when you try to log into Provisioning, you will get an
incorrect secret key error. Use the SSK that is generated while configuring ACS.
• Provisioning supports only ACS 4.2.
Enabling SSL for LDAP Server
Using Prime Collaboration Provisioning user interface, you can import LDAP server certificates. To do this:

the synchronization status of these devices in the Infrastructure Setup page (Quick View of the device).
You will be notified if you are trying to add and save a device that already exists in Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning.
Step 4
Note
Create a Domain for the processors you have added.
After installing or reverting the snapshot for Cisco Unity Connection, you must launch the Cisco Unity
Connection user interface and wait for 10 - 15 minutes (because the device will take some time to initialize
the third party libraries), before adding the Cisco Unity Connection device in the Getting Started wizard.
Otherwise, the test connection may fail.
Creating a Domain
The wizard allows you to create a Domain and associate the unified processors that you have added in the
Device Setup page of the wizard.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
On the Domain Creation page, enter the domain name and description details.
Note
For the domain name, valid values are alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9), period (.), hyphen (-), at sign
(@), and underscore (_), but it cannot include quotes ("), angle brackets (< >), backslash (\), ampersand
(&), and percent (%).
(Optional) You can add an intra-site dial plan that you can edit or extend later using the Infrastructure
Configuration page. The dial pattern specifies how to interpret digit sequences dialed by the user, and how
to convert those sequences to an outbound dial string.
You can download the sample dial pattern file from the Domain Creation page. You can also import CUCC
dial pattern file. If you have already uploaded a dial pattern file (as part of the configuration zip file) in the
Welcome page, Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning will use the dial pattern added through the Domain
Creation page, instead of the dial pattern file added as part of the configuration zip file.
If you have not imported any dial pattern file, the wizard will use the default 10-digit dial pattern file located
at /opt/cupm/sep/deploy/dfc.ear/dfc.war/ipt/gsWizard/pcp-config.zip.
Step 3
Click Save and Continue.
You will be notified if you are trying to create a domain that already exists in Cisco Prime Collaboration

Click Save and Continue.
Enabling Manual and Automatic Service Provisioning.
Enabling Automatic and Manual Service Provisioning for a User Role
The wizard allows you to enable manual and automatic service provisioning for a user role:
• Manual Service Provisioning—The endpoints and services will be manually assigned by an administrator
while placing an order for a user with this user role.
• Automatic Service Provisioning—This is optional. If you enable automatic service provisioning, the
endpoints and services you assign will be automatically provisioned to the user created with this user
role.
You can enable automatic and manual service provisioning for only one user role using the wizard. To enable
automatic and manual service provisioning for more user roles, choose Provisioning Setup.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Employee user role is created by default when creating the Domain. You can rename the user role if required,
but cannot change the user role type (Employee).
For manual provisioning, select the Line Type, Endpoint, Service and Service bundles. These services must
be manually assigned by an administrator while placing an order for a user with this user role.
Enable Automatic Service Provisioning for the user role.
Select the endpoint, service and service bundles you want to automatically provision for the user role.
You can select the following:
• Endpoint—You can either choose a self-provisioned endpoint or a default endpoint. Cisco Unified IP
Phone 7960 is the default endpoint model auto-provisioned for the user. If you choose self-provisioned
endpoint, enter the maximum number of endpoints, and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) details required
by the Unified Communications Manager.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning requires the IVR Directory Number, and Auto-registration
starting and ending Directory Numbers to self-provision the endpoints. These numbers are auto populated
when the voicemail pilot number is provided while adding the message processor. When the user dials
the IVR Directory Number from the endpoint, the IVR prompts will be played. The Starting and Ending
Auto-registration Directory Numbers define the range of Directory Numbers that are used by the endpoints
to auto-register.

Managing Devices Overview
To use Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you must first add the IP communications infrastructure devices
that are part of your IP telephony environment.
After adding devices, you synchronize the data in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Unity
systems, and Cisco Unified Presence with Prime Collaboration Provisioning. This populates Prime Collaboration
Provisioning with the existing active users and services, and provides a consolidated view of all of the
infrastructure and user information.
Provisioning also provides support for Cisco IOS routers. When a Cisco IOS router device is added to Prime
Collaboration Provisioning, it appears in Prime Collaboration Provisioning as a Generic IOS Router. Through
the Generic IOS Router capability, Prime Collaboration Provisioning can configure additional voice
functionality on the router.
Call Processors are proxies for each instance of a Cisco Unified Communications Manager or Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Express device. Unified Message Processors are proxies for each instance of a
Cisco Unity Express, or Cisco Unity Connection device. Unified Presence Processors are proxies for each
instance of Cisco IM & Presence. You will find these terms used in place of their respective devices.

Managing Devices in Prime Collaboration Provisioning
Adding Devices
Adding Devices
You must add devices to Prime Collaboration Provisioning to provision services for users. For a list of devices
you can add to Prime Collaboration Provisioning, see Supported Devices for Prime Collaboration Provisioning
- Standard and Advanced.
Note the following points while you are adding a device to Prime Collaboration Provisioning:
• Before you add devices to Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you must ensure that Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, Cisco Unity Connection,
Cisco Unity Express devices are configured correctly. For details on configuring these devices, see
Setting Up Devices for Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
• For infrastructure devices (Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Unity Connection, and Cisco
Unified Presence) that are setup in a cluster environment, add the publisher information and credentials
only.
• There are some significant differences in how a Generic IOS Router is set up in Prime Collaboration
Provisioning in comparison to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager or a Cisco Unity device. Most
notably, Generic IOS Routers are not synchronized and they are not associated to a Domain or a Service
Area.
• Before you can create a Call Processor based on a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express in
Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you must:
◦Disable the auto-allocation of directory numbers. Do this through the Cisco IOS interface.
◦Disable the ephone auto-registration for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express.
To add devices to Provisioning:
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Step 5
Choose Device Setup.
In the Device Setup page, click Add to add devices to Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
In the Add Device window, select the required application from the drop-down list and enter the necessary
information such as Name, IP address, and so on. See the tables below for field descriptions.
Note
For the device name, valid values are space, alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9), underscore (_),
hyphen (-), period (.), and at sign (@).
(Optional) Click Test Connection to check the connectivity of the device with respect to name, IP address,
application, version, username, and password. You can test connection without saving the device.
Note
Test Connection is not supported for Deployment Manager, Prime License Manager, Expressway
Edge, and Expressway Core.
Click Save.
Devices are added to Prime Collaboration Provisioning. You will see two status messages appearing at the
bottom of the page. One on whether the addition of the device was successful or not, and another on the Test
Connection stating whether the connectivity test was successful or not . Devices with multiple applications
are added as separate devices in the table.

Managing Devices in Prime Collaboration Provisioning
Adding Devices
Note
While adding Cisco Unity Connection 10.0 and above versions, you must configure both Unity
Connection administrator and Operating System (OS) administrator credentials.
If the Test Connection fails while adding Cisco Unity Connection 10.5.2 and above versions, create
a proxy user in the Cisco Unity Connection device. After creating a proxy user, edit the device details
and update the OS Admin credentials with the new proxy user credentials.
To create proxy user, login as administrator in Cisco Unity Connection and enter the following CLI
commands:
utils cuc proxy usrcreate
utils cuc proxy usrpasswd
utils cuc proxy enable
To view the details of the device, hover over Quick View. You can start synchronization, view synchronization
logs, test the connectivity of the device, and cross launch Cisco Unified CM Serviceability and Cisco Unity
Connection Serviceability from Quick View. The Quick view also displays the status of Jabber service (enabled
from Unified Communication Services pane and Getting Started wizard) and Self-Provisioning (enabled
through Getting Started wizard) for the device.
To update or change the device details, click Edit.
Some devices have more than one application on it (devices with same IP address). If you are adding devices
with more than one application on it, add the first device and save it. After the device is successfully added
to Provisioning, add the device again, selecting the second application. Save the device. Both the devices will
appear in the Device Setup table.
You can add Prime License Manager and Deployment Manager from the Infrastructure Setup page. After you
add these devices, Prime License Manager and Deployment Manager links are displayed under the
Administration menu. Click on the Prime License Manager or Deployment Manager link to cross launch the
Prime License Manager or Deployment Manager login page.
Note
You can add only one Prime License Manager and Deployment Manager device to Prime Collaboration
Provisioning. If you try to add another Prime License Manager or Deployment Manager device, an error
message will be displayed.

Description
Options are:
• None—Select this option if you have not enabled both LDAP
synchronization and authentication in Cisco Unified CM, and
want to push users from Prime Collaboration Provisioning user
interface onto the UC applications.
Note
For Cisco Unified CM 10.5(1) and above:
• For Brownfield deployments, where Cisco Unified
CM and Prime Collaboration Provisioning are
already LDAP-integrated separately, set the flag
as "Synchronization and Authentication".
• For Greenfield deployments, we recommend you
to set the flag as "None". If you select this option,
Cisco Unified CM need not synchronize with AD
to authenticate users. When a new user is created
in Prime Collaboration Provisioning, and if Cisco
Unified CM is set to Authenticate Only with
LDAP, then the user account is pushed into Cisco
Unified CM and the user is marked as an LDAP
synchronized user in Cisco Unified CM. This
functionality ensures that Cisco Unified CM
contains only users that have services assigned to
them.
• Synchronization—Select this option if you have enabled LDAP
synchronization alone in CUCM.
• Synchronization and Authentication—Select this option if you
have enabled LDAP synchronization and authentication in
CUCM.
The value you choose must exactly match the value configured in
Cisco Unified Communications Manager. If Cisco Unified
Communications Manager is integrated with an external LDAP, users
are not created through Provisioning; instead they are synchronized
through Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
While provisioning a service, if a user is not available on Cisco
Unified Communications Manager, the workflow subsystem waits
for a predefined period of time (24 hours by default) for the user to
be available on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and then
continues provisioning the service.
The 24-hour period can be configured on Provisioning in the
ipt.properties file. Change the following settings:
• dfc.oem.extdir.retries: 24
• dfc.oem.extdir.retry_interval: 3600
Note
You must restart Prime Collaboration Provisioning if
you make any changes to ipt.properties file.

Single LDAP Synchronization
Prime Collaboration Provisioning 10.5.1 and above versions along with Cisco Unified CM 10.5.1 and
above versions support a feature called single LDAP synchronization, which eliminates the need to have
different LDAP synchronization policies.
During single LDAP synchronization, Prime Collaboration Provisioning alone will be LDAP integrated.
Cisco Unified CM will be configured with LDAP Directory and authentication information. Prime
Collaboration Provisioning synchronizes users from LDAP. And when the user information is pushed into
Cisco Unified CM, Prime Collaboration Provisioning will mark appropriate flags through which Cisco
Unified CM identifies the user as LDAP synchronized user. Remember:
• This feature is supported only with Cisco Unified CM and not with other UC applications like Cisco
Unity Connection and Cisco IM & Presence.
• This feature is supported only with Prime Collaboration Provisioning 10.5.1 and above, when used
with Cisco Unified CM 10.5.1 and above.
• LDAP Directory information in Prime Collaboration Provisioning and Cisco Unified CM should
match. Any out-of-band changes in Cisco Unified CM require Cisco Unified CM user synchronization.
For Greenfield deployments: Prime Collaboration Provisioning will take care of pushing the required
LDAP configurations into Cisco Unified CM. The LDAP integration flag will be set to "None".
For Brownfield deployments: Where Cisco Unified CM is already LDAP integrated and users are
synchronized into Cisco Unified CM, you are recommended to use the existing LDAP policies in Prime
Collaboration Provisioning and Cisco Unified CM as is. The LDAP integration flag will be set to
"Synchronization & Authentication".

Field
Description
LDAP User Search Base
This should be the search base of the Admin user account entered in "Admin
Distinguished Name". This will be used for connection tests.
Note
Domain LDAP Synchronization and User LDAP Authentication uses
the search base defined in domains for synchronization and
authentication.
LDAP server searches for users under this base.
You must enter the CN or OU details when you enter the search base. Just
dc=cisco,dc=com will not work; you must also specify the CN or OU part. For
example,
cn=users,dc=eta,dc=com.
If you have configured two different user groups, for example,
• OU=Organization, OU=Accounts, DC=aaa, DC=com
• OU=Service, OU=Accounts, DC=aaa, DC=com
The search base to be entered is OU=Accounts, DC=aaa, DC=com.
If a user in OU=Organization user group is configured as Admin DN, then all
the users in Organization user group can login to Prime Collaboration, but the
users in Services user group will not be able to login. Similarly, if a user in
OU=Services user group is configured as Admin DN, then all the users in
Services user group can login to Prime Collaboration, but not the users in
Organization user group.
If you configure a user in top level as Admin DN, then all the users under that
level can log into Prime Collaboration. For example, if a user in OU=Accounts
user group is configured as Admin DN, then all the users in Organization and
Services user groups can login to Prime Collaboration.
Note
LDAP authentication fails if you enter special characters in the search
base.
Use SSL
You should check this check box if Prime Collaboration Provisioning should
use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for the transmission channel between
Prime Collaboration Provisioning and the AAA server.
ACS Authentication

Managing Domains, Service Areas, User Roles, and Service Templates
Adding a Domain
In Prime Collaboration Provisioning 10.0 and above versions, the User Provisioning Setup page (choose
Provisioning Setup) is simplified to set up all your user provisioning tasks. A centralized view allows you to
manage Domains, Service Areas, User Roles and Service Templates in a single user interface.
Figure 2: Domains, Service Areas, and User Roles
Deployments can be based on the geographical location. In the above example, the voice deployment is planned
for cities in the West Coast region. West Coast is the Domain. The domain sync rules, policies and administrator
permissions are defined in the West Coast domain. San Jose, Los Angeles, and San Francisco are the Service
Areas. Doctor, Nurse and Lobby assistant user roles within these cities must be provisioned with IP Telephony
and Messaging Services. These IP telephony and messaging services are defined within the service templates.
The Doctor and Nurse user roles are assigned with service templates that allow them to make international
calls, whereas the service templates defined for Lobby user role allow local calls only.
In the User Interface (Provisioning Setup), you can see the Domains, Service Areas, User Roles, and Service
Templates listed in the left pane. The corresponding tables are listed in the right pane. The Domains table is
displayed by default when you enter the Provisioning Setup page. Click All Domains to see a list of all the
domains. Click the arrow icon to expand. When you expand a Domain, you can see the Services Areas, User
Roles and Service Templates of that Domain. Further, when you expand Service Areas and User Roles, you
can see multiple service areas, and list of User roles associated to that Domain.
Adding a Domain
Domains are groupings of users. For each grouping, one or more system users can be authorized to manage
services for users within that Domain. In addition, rules or policies may be set on a Domain; those rules and
policies will apply to services for users in that Domain. Common policies can also be applied on operations
within a Domain.
A user can manage more than one Domain (if the user is assigned the proper authorization role). All of the
user’s services are provisioned in the Service Area that you specify while adding the user (to add a user, choose
User Provisioning).
After creating a Domain, you can add Service Areas and User roles that have access to your new Domain.
You can also create service templates and assign them to a Service Area and User Role. A Service Template
can be associated to several such combinations of Service Areas and User Roles.

Refresh the Domain list page to see the status.
Service Areas
Service Areas are groupings within a Domain that are used to structure and manage the required IP telephony
and messaging services across geographic, organizational, or technological boundaries. The Service Area
typically acts as a service offering location and provides a template mechanism that determines provisioning
attribute values used during order processing.
The Service Area determines the mappings from the business view of the service to the technology delivering
those services.
A Service Area also handles Cisco Unified CM partitioning and class of service by directing which location,
device pool and route partition assignments to use for any user provisioned into that Service Area.
For example, on a Service Area associated to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the Service Area
defines the device pool, route partition, location, and external phone number mask that the products will use
within Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
In this case, when you configure a Service Area, you have a list of route partitions that can be assigned to it
based on the selected Call Processor for the Service Area. If the Service Area does not have any associated
route partition, then the directory numbers and lines are created in the default route partition in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager. Service areas also determine the key voicemail settings and call forwarding
behaviors.
Ensure Synchronization is completed for the Cisco Unified CM while creating the Service Area. You can
map the call processor objects (such as Route Partition, Device Pool, and Location) to the Service Area only
after the synchronization.
For Cisco Unity Connection Unified Message Processors, if you assign a Unified Message Processor to a
Service Area, the Subscriber Template (with or without the TTS feature) and Subscriber CoS (with or without
the TTS feature) can be configured. These templates can be used for voicemail provisioning of users in the
Service Area.
Note
For Service Areas with Call Processors based on Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, only
device pools are available for selection. Route partitions are not available.

Adding Service Areas
When configuring a Service Area, you can do the following:
• Map the Service Area to the corresponding Call Processor objects by specifying its Call Processors and
related objects (for a Cisco Unified Communications Manager, some examples are route partition, and
device pool), Unified Message Processor, and Unified Presence Processor.
If you have added a Call Processor in the domain through the Getting Started wizard, the fields like
Calling Search Spaces (CSS), Region, Location, and device pool are automatically configured.
• Specify the user types for the Service Area (only users within a Service Area can order products from
it).
The Employee user role is the default based on the Domain rule DefaultUserType.
• Create directory number blocks for the Service Area users.
• Unified Presence Processor settings will list the Presence processor if the selected Call Processor has
associated Presence processors.
Note
After a Service Area is assigned to a Domain, it cannot be moved to a different Domain. Further, after a
Call Processor, Unified Message Processor, or Unified Presence Processor is assigned to a Service Area,

Before a Service Area can be deleted, the following conditions must be met:
• The system must be in maintenance mode.
• No active released orders, including unrecoverable or recoverable errors.
• No active batch projects.
• No Domain synchronizations in progress.
• No Processor synchronizations in progress.
If these conditions are not met, a message appears on the page when you attempt to delete a Service Area,
telling you the operation will not start.
While the Service Area deletion is in progress, avoid performing any activities until the deletion of that Service
Area is complete.

Directory Number Blocks
Numbers within a directory number block are relative to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager on
which they are being created. Prime Collaboration Provisioning handles directory numbers the same way as
they are handled by Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
While creating an order for a service, if you are selecting a Service Area that does not have a directory number
block, you can use only the chosen line number.
You can set up individual directory numbers using the Directory Number Inventory component. For more
information, see Managing Directory Number , on page 182.
The table below describes the fields for creating a block of directory numbers.

Minimum Length
The minimum number of digits that a directory number can contain before the
prefix is added. Used by the system to pad numbers with zeros.
Block Size
This field is populated after you save the Service Area page.
E.164 Support
If you are using Cisco Unified Communications Manager version 7.x or later, you can configure the international
escape character, +, in Provisioning to allow your phone users to place calls without having to remember and
enter the international direct dialing prefix/international escape code that is associated with the called party.
Depending on the phone model, for example, dual-mode phones, your phone users can dial + on the keypad
of the phone. In other cases, the phone user can return calls by accessing the call log directory entries that
contain +.
The international escape character, +, signifies the international access code in a complete E.164 number
format. For example, NANP numbers have an E.164 global format in the format +1 214 555 1234. The + is
a leading character that gets replaced by service providers in different countries with the international access
code to achieve global dial plans.
You can enter + or \+ to indicate the international escape character.
Remember the following while using E.164 format directory numbers:
• For directory numbers, you can configure the international escape character at the beginning of the
number (prefix) only (for example, \+5678, +0034).
• To configure the international escape character for supported patterns, you can enter \+ or + in the pattern
or directory number field.
• You can assign the E.164 format directory numbers to the ordered lines by using the Chosen Line option.
• E.164 support is not available for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express.
• Unity Connection 9.0 and above versions support E.164 format Directory Number, so the original
directory number (along with the + symbol) will be displayed in the extension number field.
• While ordering bundled products like Enhanced Phone Service, Unified Messaging Service, Messaging
Service, and so on, if you select Auto-assigned Line type option, the Alternate Extension field will not
be auto populated for voicemail product while creating the order. Alternate extension will be added at
the back end at the available position and will be displayed when the order is completed.
If you select Choose Line type option, Alternate extension will be auto populated at the available index
(for example, 1, 2, 3, and so on) in the Voicemail Advanced Order Configuration page.
• Meet-Me patterns, Call Park patterns (and related call park features; for example, Directed Call Park),
and Call Pickup patterns do not support the international escape character (+). Therefore, you cannot
enter \+ in the pattern fields that are configured for these features in the Infrastructure Configuration
page.

discard the changes, click Cancel.
To delete a Directory Number Block, click Delete.
Adding User Roles
Prime Collaboration Provisioning is a user-centric provisioning product and requires human users and open
space locations to be defined with a userID. This provides a convenient way to identify users, and devices in
shared spaces. User roles can be used for several purposes. They provide policy enforcement, controlling
which products and services are allowed to be ordered for different types of users such as contractors, executives

Managing Domains, Service Areas, User Roles, and Service Templates
Adding User Roles
or sales persons. They are also used in a filtering process that controls what choices are presented to order
administrators at order time. The User Role setup also determines what services are ordered and which service
templates are applied for a given user type during the Automatic Service Provisioning process. An administrator
may create many User Roles to define different levels of services.
The default user roles are:
• Employee—Default role assigned to new users.
Note
The default role is configured in the Domain Rules.
The Employee user role should be configured to match the typical setup of employees in your organization.
If you do not configure the employee user role to meet your needs, you may not see all the desired
options during the service ordering process.
• Executive—An additional role with more service settings.
• Room—The role labeled Room is provided as a general role for shared spaces, lobby phones and other
open area endpoint devices.
Note
• From Prime Collaboration 11.0 and above versions, pseudo role is represented as Room role. While
upgrading Prime Collaboration from 10.x to 11.0 , the pseudo role will be retained.
• Changing a user's role from User to Open Space or vice versa is allowed.
• Changing a user's role from pseudo to non-pseudo or vice versa is not allowed.
The following table shows the details whether user account is created or not on Cisco Unified CM based
on the role.

When a user is added, the administrator specifies the role of the user. When an Open Space role is added, the
administrator specifies the room role.
A pseudo user can have one or more endpoints associated with it. For example, conference rooms can be
pseudo users with one or more endpoints, whereas a building can be a pseudo user with hundreds of endpoints
associated with it.
These user roles exist in each Domain in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning. Each set of user roles maybe
customized in each Domain by adding, removing, or changing these predefined user roles.
To add a user role:

Adding User Roles
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Step 5
Choose Provisioning Setup.
In the All Domains pane, expand a specific domain and click User Roles.
In the User Roles for a specific domain page, click Add.
In the User Role Configuration page, enter the required details for user role name, type, domain, lines,
services, service bundles, and check the check box below the Room Role to designate the user as a Pseudo
user, and click Save.
Note
For the user role name, valid values are alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9), period (.), hyphen (-), at sign
(@), and underscore (_), but it cannot include quotes ("), angle brackets (< >), backslash (\), ampersand
(&), and percent (%).
(Optional) Enable Automatic Service Provisioning, to provision services along with user role creation.
When you are adding users, you can choose to Auto-Provision Parameters based on the user role. This will
automatically provision services you chose for the user role assigned to the user.
If Automatic Service Provisioning is not enabled, the user role is created without any provisioned services.
You can manually provision services for the user (choose User Provisioning).
Step 6
(Optional) The Service Template Assignment table lists the templates available for auto-provisioning and
quick service provisioning. The default templates used for auto-provisioning are marked as yes in the Default
column. To edit a template, you can either select the suitable row and edit the fields or click the suitable radio
button and then the Edit icon. You can choose a different Service, Service Area, Endpoint Model and Template
from the respective columns and save them.
(For Cisco Prime Collaboration Release 11.1 and later) You must select Endpoint from the service
drop-down list to enable Endpoint Model column for quick service provisioning. Based on the Endpoint Model
you choose, Template drop-down displays the templates as described below with an example.
The following types of service templates can be created for endpoint models:
• A template that is specific to the endpoint model.
• A template that is applicable to series of the endpoint model.
• A universal template that is applicable to all the endpoint models.
For example:
• If you choose Cisco 7861, Template column displays all the three templates.
• If you choose Common 78xx, Template column displays only the series and universal endpoint templates.
• If you choose a Universal Endpoint, Template column displays only the universal endpoint templates.
• While provisioning Cisco 7861, if the model specific default template is not available, and 78xx and
universal templates selected as default, the 78xx template is applied.
• If both Cisco 7861 model specific and 78xx templates are not available, and universal templates selected
as default, the universal template is applied.
• If universal template also is not available, the default template is applied.
Note
You can assign only one service template per endpoint model. You must choose a different combination
of service area and endpoint model to assign a new service template for both auto-provisioning and
quick service provisioning.

• The user role quick view displays the domain, number of endpoints, services and service bundles selected
for that user role.
It also displays whether auto-provisioning is enabled or disabled. If enabled, the user role quick view
lists the endpoints, services, and service bundles that are selected for auto-provisioning. The service
template quick view also displays whether auto-provisioning is used for a particular service area and
user role combination.
Troubleshooting
Issue: You cannot create new Users/Open Space if you add a user with open space role or adding a open
space with user roles. Similarly, you cannot create new Users/Open Space if you add a user with both pseudo
and non-pseudo roles or add a open space with pseudo and non-pseudo roles. Recommended Action: Use
appropriate roles for "SubscriberType" column in batch file.
Issue: You cannot create a Open Space without any role specified in batch. Recommended Action:Select
an available Open-space role. If no Open-space roles are available, create a Open-space role, then select the
role to create a Room.

Automatic Service Provisioning
Step 5
Click Save.
Automatic Service Provisioning
The Automatic Service Provisioning (ASP) feature enables you to automatically provision services for new
users at user add time. Automatic Service Provisioning is generally driven by LDAP import, CSV/batch import
or new user add function in the user interface. Automatic Service Provisioning is supported for Unified
Communications applications 10.x and above.
Figure 3: Automatic Service Provisioning
Automatic Service Provisioning allows to create many services for a user automatically when that user is
created. For example , using ASP, you can have Prime Collaboration Provisioning automatically add a phone,
line, voicemail, IM&P, EM, SNR, Jabber for iPhone, and Jabber for desktop simultaneously.
The list of services can be different by creating different roles with different sets of services. For example,
two user roles called “Director” and “Director-Full Features” can be created with matching manual order-time
services but different settings in the Automatic Service Provisioning section of the user roles. The first role
may just have phone, line and voicemail turned on for ASP. The second role may have phone, line, voicemail,
IM&P, EM, SNR, Jabber for iPhone and Jabber for desktop turned on for ASP.
While enabling Automatic Service Provisioning for a user role, you must select the service area (to be used
for auto-provisioning) and the services that can be automatically provisioned for the users who are assigned
to this user role. For information on adding a user role, see Adding User Roles, on page 69.
You can enable Automatic Service Provisioning for the following services:
• Endpoint
• Line
• Single Number Reach (Enable Mobility, Remote Destination Profile, and Remote Destination Profile
Line)
• IM & Presence
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
73
Managing Domains, Service Areas, User Roles, and Service Templates
Automatic Service Provisioning
• Voicemail
• Extension Mobility Access
• Extension Mobility Line
• Cisco Jabber
While enabling Automatic Service Provisioning for Endpoint service, you have the following options:
• Default Endpoint—If you select this option, you must select the endpoint model that will be
auto-provisioned for the user by default.
• Self-Provisioned Endpoint—If you select this option, the users will be able to provision their endpoints
without contacting the administrator. The user can add the endpoint by plugging it into the network and
following a few prompts to identify the user.
You can also specify the maximum number of endpoints that the user can self-provision.
If you have enabled self-provisioning for a user, a Line without endpoint will be automatically created
for the user. The self-provisioned endpoints can be added to this Line later.
If you have enabled auto-provisioning for Single Number Reach service, the user must go to the Self-Care
portal of Cisco Unified Communications Manager to activate Single Number Reach. For information
about the Self-Provisioning feature available in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, see Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.
Note the following points while you are enabling Automatic Service Provisioning for a user role or user:
• Automatic Service Provisioning is applicable only for new users (added through Provisioning user
interface, batch provisioning, Add User NBAPI, or synchronized from LDAP server). For the existing
users, Automatic Service Provisioning cannot be initiated.
• Automatic Service Provisioning is not supported for users who are added to Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning through domain synchronization and Cisco Unified CM Change Notification.
• While creating user role, if you are selecting more than one Line service for Automatic Service
Provisioning, the directory number which is used for provisioning the Line will be shared among the
Line services.
• User roles for LDAP synchronized users will be mapped based on the domain filters.
• While creating a new user, you can choose multiple user roles for the user, but you can select only one
default user role for auto-provisioning.
• While enabling Automatic Service Provisioning for new users, you must also specify the default service
area to be used for auto-provisioning.
• If you are selecting Auto-assigned Line as line type for auto-provisioning, the service area that you have
selected should have Directory Number blocks configured and Directory Numbers available for
provisioning. If Directory Number blocks are not available in the service area, Auto-assigned line type
option will not be displayed in the Add User page, when you select that service area for auto provisioning.
• If you are choosing the line type as Chosen Line, you must also provide the Directory Number, otherwise
user details will not be saved for auto provisioning (a validation message will be displayed when you
click Save and Continue).
• Extension Mobility line can be auto-provisioned only for users having Extension Mobility Access.

Managing Domains, Service Areas, User Roles, and Service Templates
Quick Service Provisioning
• Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning assigns dummy MAC address for phones that are automatically
provisioned.
• While enabling Automatic Service Provisioning for a user role, if you have selected Jabber service, users
that are assigned to this user role will be automatically provisioned with Jabber and associated Line
service. If you have selected both Endpoint service and Jabber for a user role, Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning will automatically provision 2 lines with shared DN while auto-provisioning Endpoint and
Jabber service.
• The user has to update the Unity Connection Web password using the Provisioning Self-Care portal or
Manage PIN/Password option to configure the Voicemail/Visual Voicemail features in the Jabber client.
Quick Service Provisioning
For Cisco Prime Collaboration Release 11.1 and later
The Quick Service Provisioning feature offers an easy and quick way to provision initial or additional services
for a user already defined in Prime Collaboration Provisioning, without using the ordering wizard that involves
multiple steps to order a service. A new dialog box called Provision Services is included on the User
Provisioning page to perform quick service provisioning for existing users. The quick service provisioning
for an existing user can be enabled either through
• the user record page (see the procedure below)
• or the user provisioning page (select user and click Provision Services to proceed with the process).
In addition, a new button called Custom Services Wizard in the user record page enables the users to provision
the services in the usual way.
To enable quick service provisioning through the user record page:
Before You Begin
Before you enable quick service provisioning, note the following:
• You must select a service area. You must add a service area to the domain or you must associate the
user role with the service area to proceed with Quick Service Provisioning.
• The user role associated with the user is displayed in the "Apply Service Template based on" drop-down.
• Based on the user role, only the service template is applied and the services under "Unified
Communication Services" area are enabled.
• To apply a user service template for User Services:
• You must select User Services under Services section in the User Role configuration page.
• You must create a user service template and mark it as default in Service Template Assignment
table.
• For new and existing users: Select IM & Presence in the quick service provisioning dialog box.
• If IM and Presence is already enabled for a user, the service is greyed-out in the quick service
provisioning dialog box and you cannot apply the template.
• You must select the Line Type when you select or check any one of the following services: Line, Single
Number Reach, EM service, and Cisco Jabber.

• You must check whether Directory Number blocks are configured in the selected Service Area or the
"Auto- Assigned" option is selected for the user role, if Auto-Assigned Line is not shown in the Line
Type drop down.
• You must enable either Single Number Reach Service under bundle services or Enable Mobility, Remote
Destination Profile, and Remote Destination Profile Line in the user role policy to enable Single Number
Reach.
• You must select any one of the following services to provision a voicemail:
• Line
• Single Number Reach
• EM service
• Cisco Jabber
• You must enter the MAC Address or the suitable Device Name based on the selected phone type. Dummy
MAC Address of the endpoint is provisioned if no value is specified in the MAC Address field.

record page. See Accessing User Records for a User, on page 204 for details on Add-on Service.
Creating Service Templates
Service Templates are a convenience for administrators setting up devices or ordering services for an end-user.
Service Templates allow small or large amounts of settings to be collected into a single template which can
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
76
Managing Domains, Service Areas, User Roles, and Service Templates
Creating Service Templates
be applied to endpoints or services. This saves time over setting many individual attributes and provides
accuracy to prevent missed attributes or typos in attribute fields. Service Templates contain provisioning
attributes for a service and enables you to configure service attribute settings using provisioning attributes.
Provisioning attributes are configuration settings that are applied to a service during activation.
Figure 4: Service Templates
At order time, Prime Collaboration Provisioning takes into account the configured provisioning attributes in
addition to the Service Area settings to determine the final product configuration to be provisioned.
Note
You must complete the infrastructure synchronization before creating Service Areas and service templates.
Note
The service area(s) and user role(s) must be defined before creating Service Templates. Service Templates
require selecting service areas and user roles as part of the service template creation process. Associations
can be added or deleted but the Service Templates will not be available for use if the associations are not
present. You must assign the Service Templates to a service area and user role combination for the templates
to be visible in the Add Order and Change Order wizards.
Templates only relate to a single domain. A domain may have one or more clusters associated.
You must have administration privileges to configure the content of the provisioning attributes .
Not all attributes are applicable for all Endpoint types or for all Cisco Unified Communications Manager
versions. Depending on your Provisioning setup, all attributes may not be available to you.

Select a Service and enter the necessary provisioning attributes for the service. All default provisioning
attributes are populated by default.
When you choose Endpoint from the Service drop-down list, an additional drop-down field, namely Endpoint
Model is displayed. Select the Endpoint Model based on the service you have selected.
You can use a common template that can be applied to several endpoint models or lines, thus reducing the
need to create each template for each endpoint model or line. A common template groups a set of attributes
that are common across the endpoint family. Common templates are described in the following table.
Step 5
Table 14: Common Template Description
Common Template
Family Endpoint Template
Description
• Many family types: Jabber Phones, DX Phones,
69xx,78xx, 88xx and 89xx.
• Superset of one endpoint family.
• Apply only to endpoints belonging to the family.
• Cover all the attributes for the endpoint in the
family (superset) including:
◦Common Attributes - Example: Calling
Search Space and Common Phone Profile.
◦Model Specific Attributes - Example:
iPhone Country Code.
• For each attribute, only the common values
(intersection) across those models which contain
this attribute in the family will be available.
• Some Family Endpoint Template such as
Common 69xx and 89xx supports SIP and
SCCP protocols as well as Either(determined
by Endpoint) protocol.
• The Either(determined by Endpoint) protocol
lists all the attributes available in the family
regardless of the protocol.
• You can further reduce the template creation by
choosing Either (determined by Endpoint) to
serve both the SIP and SCCP protocols as it will
cover all the attributes, thus leaving protocol
selection during ordering time.

As a result, one common template can be used to multiple endpoints/lines, thereby optimizing the service
template creation process.
Note
For endpoints, Common Templates feature is supported on Cisco Unified CM 10.x and above
only.
If you encounter discrepancy on supported endpoint models between Prime Collaboration Provisioning and
Cisco Unified CM, install Cisco Options Package (COP)-file on Cisco Unified CM to get all those missing
endpoint models into Cisco Unified CM. Refer Manage Device Firmware section in Administration Guide
for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Release 11.0(1) for the procedure.
Step 6
To add a Service Area and User Role to the Service Template, Click Add Row. Select a Service Area and
User Role, and click Save. To edit, click Edit and change the assignment.
You can edit or delete the templates you have created. To copy the service template to a different domain
with a new name, click Copy .
Note
• While configuring the service templates for Remote Destination Profile, if you select a User Locale
that is not available in the device, the order may fail.
• If Line, EM Line & RDP Line service templates are created and assigned for auto provisioning at
the same time (line is shared), then values displayed in Line Description, Alerting Name, and ASCII
Alerting Name will be based on the line template only.
While creating a new order, you can choose the Service Template you have created from the Service Template
drop-down list.
The service template quick view displays the template's association with service area and user role. It displays
whether the service template chosen is used for auto-provisioning for a particular user role or not.

• If you cannot find the attribute to set in the Universal Phone Template, you are recommended to use
Family Endpoint Template if available or try to use its own Template.
• If you cannot find the attribute to set in the Universal Line Template, you are recommended to use its
own Line, EM Line or RDP Line Template.
• If you cannot find the attribute to set in the Common Template, you are recommended to use its own
Template. If the attribute is not required attribute in template, but a required attribute in model, the
default value in model will be set during order time.

Adding Keywords for Service Templates
Prime Collaboration Provisioning provides you an option to add keywords to the provisioning attributes at
the time of creating Service templates or when ordering a service. You can add multiple keywords and can
also specify the length of each keyword.
These keywords are automatically replaced on screen with the actual values immediately after moving to the
next field. When replacing the keyword, the characters will be limited to the limit defined. For example,
${COMPANY}(3) – Cisco will be limited to "Cis".
Note
The following exceptions are applicable to the keyword replacement:
• The keyword EXTENSION is replaced only at the backend.
• If you do not provide any values for the Domain Rule attributes, the values are taken from the domain
rules and are displayed only in the summary page.
The following keywords are supported for Service templates:
• FIRSTNAME
• LASTNAME
• USERID
• EXTENSION
• COMPANY
• MIDNAME
• DEPT
• EMAIL
• EMPID
• MANAGER

Recommended Action: Proceed ordering with EXTENSION keyword as it is.
Using System Default Values
In the Add Order wizard, Change Order wizard, and Template Settings page, "Use System Default" is displayed
in the drop-down lists for non-mandatory attributes. System default values will be provisioned for these
attributes, if you are not selecting any option from the drop-down list and Use System Default is a valid value
in the device. If a default value is already set for a non-mandatory attribute, the specified value will be displayed
for that attribute, and Use System Default will be displayed as one of the options in the drop-down list.
Use System Default will not be displayed in a drop-down list, if the word "default" is included in the options
available in the drop-down list (for example, Use Default Language, Use Phone Default, Use Default System
Policy, Default, and so on).
Note
Use System Default will not be displayed for the Protocol field.
For mandatory attributes, if a default value is already set, the specified default value will be displayed. If a
default value is not set, then the first option in the drop-down list will be displayed, before you select a value

from the drop-down list. If a drop-down list is empty and a default value is not set for that attribute, then
"Make a Selection" will be displayed. Make a Selection will be displayed for the following provisioning fields:
• Selected Endpoint
• Selected Line
• Line Type
• Endpoint Type
• EM Phone Type
Use System Default or Make a Selection will not be displayed for Voicemail and Unified Messaging products.
"Not Selected" will be displayed for the Service Template field, if you are not selecting any value from the
drop-down list.
For Cisco Unified Communications Manager 9.0 and below, you must select the Use System Default option
for Softkey Template attribute, while creating Extension Mobility Access service template for Cisco 8961,
9951, and 9971 IP phones.
While ordering Extension Mobility Access for iPhones, order may fail if you use the default values for the
following attributes:
• DND Option
• DND Incoming Call Alert (Set-only Attribute)
• MLPP Indication
For ordering Extension Mobility Access for iPhones, it is recommended that you create a service template
with the following values for these attributes and apply the template while creating an order:
• DND Option—Call Reject
• DND Incoming Call Alert—Disable
• MLPP Indication—Off
Phone Provisioning Attributes Limitations
Any change order via batch using CUPM_BLANK keyword (see Keyword Usage in Batch Action Files, on
page 173) will not have any effect for Phone provisioning attributes that have override common settings check
box in Cisco Unified Communications Manager user interface. This occurs because the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager does not return default values to Provisioning for these attributes when provisioning
a phone. This applies to the following provisioning attributes:
• Join And Direct Transfer Policy
• Phone On Time
• Phone Off Time
• Phone Off Idle Timeout
• Enable Audible Alert
• EnergyWise Domain

Configuring a Transformation Template for Provisioning Attributes
For Line Text Label and ASCII Line Text Label attributes, you can enter a transformation template in the
provisioning attribute field to manipulate the digits of the directory number displayed on the phone. The digit
transformation of the masking of the directory number allows you to choose what to display.
The template allows you to delete, insert, reorder, or change any digits of the directory number by embedding
transformation masks inside the text string of the provisioning attribute.
A transformation template contains one or more transformation masks.
In the transformation mask, the following characters are allowed:
• W or w—Allows the directory number digits to appear in the same position, starting from the left.
• X or x—Allows the directory number digits to appear in the same position, starting from the right.
• . (period)—Ignores the digits in the directory number at the same position.
• Any number—Appears as itself in the output.
• % (percent)—Delimiter.
• \ (backward slash)—Delimiter (escape character).
If any other characters are used in a mask, the mask is not recognized as a mask and the characters are treated
as normal text.
When configuring the template, remember the following:
• If a transformation mask contains both a W and an X, it is not recognized as a valid mask and is treated
as normal text. But if the template contains multiple masks, you can use a W and an X in different masks
inside the same template.
• Any delimiter character without a prefixed escape character (\) is treated as a normal character when it
is not recognized as a valid delimiter as part of a transformation mask. The escape character can be used
only in places where you need to separate the normal context from the transformation mask.
• The template is limited to 60 characters.

Synchronizing Processors, Users and Domains Overview
There are three types of synchronizations in Prime Collaboration Provisioning:
• Infrastructure Synchronization—Discovers all the objects in the device that Prime Collaboration
Provisioning uses and that are not specific to individual users. The infrastructure data are the
configurations that are required to exist on the device before Prime Collaboration Provisioning can
configure user services.
• User Synchronization—Discovers all objects related to individual users.
• Domain Synchronization—Puts existing users discovered during user synchronization into the Domain.
Synchronizing the data in Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity systems, and then
synchronizing with the Domains, populates Prime Collaboration Provisioning with the existing active users
and services, and provides a consolidated view of all of the infrastructure and user information.
Remember the following before running any synchronization:
• Infrastructure and user synchronizations retrieve information from the device. They are unidirectional
synchronizations. Provisioning does not update devices during these synchronizations. Infrastructure
and user synchronizations should be completed on all devices before a Domain synchronization is started.
• You can execute the synchronizations independently and in any order. However, to preserve the integrity
of the data, it is recommended that you run the synchronizations consecutively, and in the following
order:
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
89
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Synchronizing Processors, Users and Domains Overview
1 Infrastructure synchronization.
2 User synchronization.
• After a new Provisioning installation, the infrastructure synchronization must be executed first. You
should not run more than one synchronization at a time.
• Ensure that you have checked the connectivity of the device. Click Test Connection (under Actions)
from the Device details Quick View before running any synchronization. The test results appear in the
Device details Quick View.
• The test connection results must be successful before synchronizing Unified Message Processors. If you
start synchronization for a Unified Message Processor when the test connection status is "In Progress"
or "Failure", the synchronization will fail.
• After a Call Processor or Unified Message Processor is synchronized, do not change the type of device.
For example, if you add a Cisco Unified Communications Manager, do not change the Call Processor
type to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express.
• After a Domain synchronization, you can use Prime Collaboration Provisioning to directly manage the
individual user account. You no longer have to use the underlying Cisco Unified Communications
Manager or Cisco Unity systems.
• Any out-of-band configurations (meaning configurations that are performed directly on the processor
but not synchronized with Provisioning) can result in failed orders. You must always keep Prime
Collaboration Provisioning synchronized with the processors that it is provisioning.
Change Notification feature will be automatically enabled for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 10.0
and above versions. This feature is not supported for Cisco Unified Communications Manager versions less
than 10.0.
Note
From 10.6 release, Change Notification feature is supported when the Prime Collaboration Provisioning
is running in maintenance mode.
Any updates to infrastructure or user configuration of Cisco Unified Communications Manager will be
automatically synchronized to Provisioning every 5 minutes. This avoids the need for daily or frequent
synchronization with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
As part of change notification, the user records are also updated to include the newly added services. To view
the start and end time of change notification synchronization for a Cisco Unified Communications Manager,
launch the quickview and click View Detailed Log in the Actions pane.

Infrastructure and User Synchronization
You use the infrastructure synchronization to synchronize the infrastructure data in the devices. The
infrastructure synchronization retrieves device information that is used across multiple users.
To synchronize infrastructure configuration products and users:
Procedure
Step 1
Choose Device Setup.
Step 2
Step 3
Hover over Quick View of the device for which you want to run synchronization.
Do one of the following:
• To initiate Infrastructure Synchronization, click Start Infrastructure Synchronization
• To initiate User Synchronization, click Start User Synchronization
The progress of synchronization is displayed in the Quick View under Synchronization Status.
Step 4
Click View Detailed Logs.
A synchronization log is created, listing the objects that could not be assigned. It also shows a warning message
if an unknown element is received from the device. This log is replaced each time a synchronization occurs.
Note
If you see the warning message “Skipped unexpected element,” you can ignore it. The message
indicates that Provisioning does not support the item that was sent back from the device.
If the status of an infrastructure or user synchronization does not change for an extended period of time, verify
that the Nice service is running. Run the following command to check if the Nice service is running:
ps -aef | grep nice
If the Nice service is stopped, restart the service, and then restart the infrastructure or user synchronization.
If you wish to manage the Analog Phones, you have to update the ipt.properties file. In this file, update the
dfc.ipt.cisco.callmanager.analog_phone_support to Y and then do the user synchronization. You must restart
Provisioning after the user synchronization is completed.
For the list of Cisco Unified Communications Manager objects that Provisioning synchronizes, see Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Objects that Are Synchronized, on page 93.
You use the infrastructure synchronization to synchronize the unified messaging infrastructure data in
Provisioning with the Unified Message Processor:
• SubscriberTemplate—A Subscriber Template in Cisco Unity Connection, and the e-mail message
processor.
• UnifiedMessagingFeatureSpecification—A class of service in Cisco Unity Connection, and the e-mail
message processor.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
92
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Objects that Are Synchronized
You use the user synchronization to synchronize the unified messaging user data in Provisioning with the
Unified Message Processor.
• UMInfo—A user in Cisco Unity Connection, and Cisco Unity Express in conjunction with their user’s
voicemail and e-mail information.
• VoiceMailInfo—A user in Cisco Unity Connection, and Cisco Unity Express in conjunction with UMInfo
and EmailInfo.
• EmailInfo—A user in Cisco Unity Connection in conjunction with VoiceMailInfo and UMInfo.
Note
If during the synchronization of Cisco Unity Express you encounter device connection errors, close all
Telnet sessions on the Cisco Unity Express system and restart the synchronization. Cisco Unity Express
only allows one Telnet session at a time. Prime Collaboration Provisioning cannot synchronize with a
Cisco Unity Express device that has another telnet session open.
Note
IM and Presence 9.0 and higher versions are integrated with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Due to this, user synchronization will be disabled for IM and Presence 9.0 and higher versions. User
information will be directly synchronized from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
For IM and Presence, use the Infrastructure synchronization to synchronize the User Settings Infrastructure
data with Provisioning.
Note
After upgrading your Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you must perform User Synchronization
manually to synchronize change notification settings.

Error Messages While Synchronizing a Call Processor
Some of the error messages you encounter while synchronizing a call processor:
The Detailed Log page lists items that could not be synchronized from the Cisco Unified Communications
Manager device. For example, on the page, you will see the following message:
Completed. But the following objects could not be
synchronized: [SecurityProfile, DialPlanTag, SIPTrunk, PhoneTemplate, DigitDiscardInstruction]
Incomplete synchronization can occur because of the following:
• Network problems that did not allow the items to be properly synchronized. To determine if this is the
cause, analyze the nice.log file. A network problem can be the cause if the file displays the following
information:
java.security.PrivilegedActionException:com.sun.xml.messaging.saaj.SOAPExceptionImpl:Message
send failed.
• Configuration issues with the items. In this case, copy the nice.log file and contact the Cisco Technical
Assistance Center (TAC).
Synchronizing Special Directory Numbers
Prior to the Prime Collaboration Provisioning 9.5 release, Prime Collaboration Provisioning only synchronizes
those Directory Numbers (DN) whose endpoints are managed by Prime Collaboration Provisioning and will
not have a complete knowledge of the DNs configured by Cisco Unified Communications Manager. There
might be instances of few special DNs configured on Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Special Directory Numbers:
• The DN features which are present in Cisco Unified Communications Manager but not managed by
Prime Collaboration Provisioning. For example, Intercom DN.
• The DN attached to endpoints which are not managed by Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
Note
Provisioning has a limited support of endpoints and does not support all the endpoints
available in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
95
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Overview of Domain Synchronization
From Prime Collaboration Provisioning 10.0 and above versions, you can synchronize all special DNs as part
of user synchronization. This feature will be disabled by default. To enable this feature, you must add the
following property to /opt/cupm/sep/ipt.properties file:
dfc.ipt.cisco.ccm.sync.orphanDN=true
By enabling this property, Prime Collaboration Provisioning synchronizes more DN’s and takes additional
time to complete the user synchronization process. Time taken depends on the number of special DN’s
configured in Cisco Unified CM.
Note
After updating the ipt.properties file, you must restart the cupm services for the changes to take effect.
When this feature is enabled, the provisioning orders are validated from Provisioning, rather than submitting
it to Cisco Unified Communications Manager which results in failure.
Provisioning and Special DN conditions:
Any provisioning activity carried out from Prime Collaboration Provisioning, which tries to re-use such special
DNs, can result in provisioning failure.
• When the provisioning line is auto-assigned, line will not be provisioned if the DN is already used.
• When the provisioning line is chosen manually, Prime Collaboration Provisioning will throw an error
during provisioning.
Overview of Domain Synchronization
Domain synchronization aggregates data from synchronizations. Devices are not accessed during a Domain
synchronization.
During a Domain synchronization, Prime Collaboration Provisioning does the following:
• Synchronizes users and their services with the Provisioning inventory, creates new users, and updates
the records.
• Synchronizes user accounts and updates Prime Collaboration Provisioning so that users can log in (logins
are created only if the self-care rule is enabled; see Business Rule Descriptions, on page 138.
• Associates services to Service Areas.
• Synchronizes the assigned voicemail directory numbers in Unity Connection or Unity Express to those
in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Business rules determine the criteria used for synchronizing Domains (see Configuring Business Rules for
Domain Synchronization, on page 99).
To fully synchronize a Domain, you must perform an infrastructure and user synchronization for each device
in the Domain, and then perform a Domain Synchronization.
Note
If a device in the Domain is already synchronized, it is recommended that a Domain synchronization also
be done.
While running Domain synchronization, remember the following:
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
96
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Synchronizing Domains
• If you use a user synchronization on Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express to add users to
Provisioning, the first name, last name, phone number, and department data are not obtained by
Provisioning. The Manage Users page, displays “Unknown” in these fields.
You can update the user information through Provisioning, but be aware that this information will be
pushed to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express system, and will overwrite any existing
information for the user in the ephone description field.
• You should not run more than one synchronization at a time. Run all synchronizations sequentially.
• If a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express is the only device present in a Domain and Service
Area, during Domain synchronization users are not created in Provisioning if the ephone username
command is not configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express. Ensure that the ephone
username command is configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express for all users.
• A device profile is added to a user’s record as an Extension Mobility Access product only if the device
profile is subscribed to the extension mobility service in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
• If the Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unified Presence added to the service area
are upgraded to 9.0 versions, the following services will be removed from the user records:
◦Enable Presence
◦Enable Presence Client
◦Client User Settings
The user records will be updated with the User Services product details.
• Prime Collaboration Provisioning allows you to provision device profiles with services enabled or
disabled at enterprise level.
If a device profile has associated services, the device profile will be associated to a user only if a matching
service URL is found.
Note
Extension Mobility service can be associated to a user, even if the device profile has no
associated services or if the services are enabled at enterprise level.
• Prime Collaboration Provisioning allows you to provision device profiles with services enabled or
disabled at enterprise level.
If a device profile has associated services, the device profile will be associated to a user only if a matching
service URL is found.
• After domain synchronization, all services related to users are updated in the user record. You can
change, cancel or edit services related to users without configuring a service area.
• In an upgraded server, you must run the user synchronization followed by domain synchronization to
remove the Email services and merge Unified Messaging service with Voicemail.
Synchronizing Domains
To synchronize domains:

Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Choose Provisioning Setup.
From the Domains table, hover over quick view of the Domain you want to synchronize, and click Start
Domain Synchronization.
A popup appears saying that the Domain Synchronization has started successfully. The Last Synchronization
field in Quick View displays the status of synchronization along with the start and completion time.
Domain synchronization cannot be started without configuring synchronization rules.

Business Rules for Domain Synchronization, on page 98
Business Rules for Domain Synchronization
Business rules determine the criteria used for adding users to a Domain.
For Domain synchronization to work properly, you must configure at least one of the following rules:
• Sync All Users (Unified CM)—If enabled, all user accounts in all of the Call Processors in the Domain
are assigned to the Domain being synchronized. This rule overrides the Match Department rule.
• Sync Only Existing Users—If enabled, the Domain synchronization does not create new users. Only
services of existing users in the Domain are synchronized.
• Sync by Attribute—You have the following options:
◦Match Department—If enabled, the Domain synchronization associates only the Call Processor
user accounts whose department code matches one in the list specified in the rule configuration.
◦Match Location—If enabled, the Domain synchronization associates only the Call Processor user
accounts whose phone location matches one in the list specified in the rule configuration.
◦Match Device Pool—If enabled, the Domain synchronization associates only the Call Processor
user account whose Phone or Remote Destination Profile has a device pool value that matches one
in the list specified in the rule configuration.
The rest of the Domain synchronization rules coreside (do not have a priority level) with the above rules.
Following are the coresident Domain synchronization rules:
• Sync All Users (Unity Connection)—If this rule is enabled, all user accounts in a given Message Processor
are assigned to a Provisioning Domain. Otherwise, only user accounts in the given Message Processor
with a matching Call Processor user account are assigned.
• Sync Primary User From Unity Connection—If enabled, user information is updated from the associated
Message Processor account; otherwise it is updated from the Call Processor.

Configuring Business Rules for Domain Synchronization
Note
If you try to run a Domain synchronization when none of the required rules are enabled,
a message appears in the Synchronize Domain page stating that you are required to
enable one of the rules. You can click the Configure Synchronization Rules link on this
page to open the Configure Domain Sync Rules page, where you can configure the
desired Domain synchronization rule. For more information, see Overview of Domain
Synchronization.
If more than one of the required rules are enabled, only one of the rules will be in effect.
The rule priority is applied in the following order:
1 Sync All Users (Unified CM)
2 Sync Only Existing Users
3 Match Department

Domain Synchronization Log Messages
This section provides explanations for some of the messages that can appear in the Domain Synchronization
Log report.
Duplicate username encountered. So skipping the creation of this user: TestUser from the Call Processor:
TestCCM
Indicates that another user exists in Provisioning with the same ID, but the ID uses a different case. Services
which belong to this user will not be synchronized.
To fix this problem, remove one of the users from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
No matching voicemail info found for directory number 123400000
The synchronization could not find a voicemail for the directory number. This problem can occur when either
a synchronization was not run on the Unified Message Processor (so the voicemails are not present in
Provisioning), or no matching voicemail information was found for the directory number.
To fix this problem, either run user synchronization on the Unified Message Processor, or create a Service
Area with the correct settings.
The device profile line Line 1 - 123400000 could not be added to the customer record because a service area
with the following properties could not be determined in the domain Cisco: Call Processor: TestCCM
A device profile line could not be assigned to a Service Area with the listed settings.
To fix this problem, either create a Service Area with the same settings or change the line settings on Cisco

Configuring Directory Search Synchronization Source
To configure user data service (UDS), you must set the directory source. Directory source can be either LDAP
server or Call Processor. If LDAP server is set as the directory source, UDS will be disabled in Prime
Collaboration Provisioning. By default, LDAP server is set as the directory source. For enabling UDS, you
must set the directory source as Call Processor.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
103
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Synchronizing an LDAP Server with Provisioning
You cannot enable UDS, if any of the Call Processor is integrated with LDAP. After enabling UDS, if a LDAP
integrated Call Processor is added to Prime Collaboration Provisioning, Prime Collaboration Provisioning
will disable the UDS automatically by setting the directory source as LDAP server.
The processor against which the first service is ordered for a user will be set as the home cluster for the user.
If UDS is enabled, when a user is removed from the home cluster, Provisioning will delete the corresponding
user details from the other Call Processor clusters.
You can enable directory search synchronization while adding a new Call Processor or choose to do it later.
To configure the directory search synchronization source:
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Choose Advanced Provisioning > Unified Communication Services.
Click Use Communication Manager for Directory Data.
Step 4
Click Yes to continue.
Enable button appears next to Use Communication Manager for Directory Data option.
Click Enable for directory search synchronization to happen.
Note
After clicking Enable and on adding the call processors if the sync is not auto-initiated then you
must manually initiate the sync from UCS or disable and re-enable Directory Search. This may take
several hours to complete.
Step 5
Click Apply.
A warning message is displayed stating directory search synchronization will add the user details to all Call
Processors that are 9.x and above. Depending on the number of users, this operation may take several hours
and may impact system performance.
Unified Communication Services page will be updated to show the synchronization status for each
affected cluster. If synchronization fails, an error message and links to the log files will be displayed.
Synchronizing an LDAP Server with Provisioning
You can synchronize the accounts in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server with Cisco
Prime Collaboration Provisioning. Prime Collaboration Provisioning can use this information to create new
users accounts in itself automatically, update already existing user information, or delete users.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning can populate its user database with user IDs directly from an associated
LDAP source. Configuring and scheduling LDAP synchronization are done through domain configuration.
You can configure a filter query at the domain level to allow Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning to
identify the exact users that have to be imported into Prime Collaboration Provisioning, as opposed to importing
the entire LDAP directory into each domain. You can create complex filters based on the available fields in
Microsoft Active Directory.
Administrators can control how Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning removes users. They can configure
the “Always Delete” option when a user is no longer in the LDAP directory so that when the synchronization
between Prime Collaboration Provisioning and Active Directory runs, the user will be removed from Cisco
Prime Collaboration Provisioning and the user’s services will be moved to the global namespace. The “Delete
if user has no services” option prevents a user from being deleted if the user still has associated services. These

Before LDAP Synchronization
Before you configure LDAP settings and perform synchronization, refer the following sections for more
understanding.
Greenfield Deployments
For greenfield deployments, remember the following:
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
106
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Before LDAP Synchronization
When a service is ordered for a user that is imported from LDAP server, the Getting Started Wizard pushes
the LDAP server details like LDAP directory, authentication and system settings to Cisco Unified
Communications Manager. Cisco Unified Communications Manager marks the user as LDAP user. The users
that are marked as LDAP user can log into the Self-Care portal of Cisco Unified Communications Manager,
using the credentials configured in the LDAP server.
Note
After you upgrade to latest version of Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you must run LDAP
synchronization in Provisioning. Otherwise, LDAP imported users will not be marked as LDAP users in
Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Brownfield Deployments
For brownfield deployments, you must do the following:
1 Create an Infrastructure template (Infrastructure Setup > Configuration Templates) for LDAP authentication
to disable authentication in Cisco Unified Communications Manager (you must choose the option "No"
for "Use LDAP Authentication for End Users" attribute). Push this configuration to Cisco Unified
Communications Manager through batch project.
2 Create an Infrastructure template for LDAP System to disable LDAP synchronization in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager. You must provide the value, "sAMAccountName" for "LDAP Attribute for
User ID" field, if you have selected Microsoft AD server. You must provide the value, "uid" for "LDAP
Attribute for User ID" field, if you have selected Microsoft ADAM or Lightweight Directory Services.
Push this configuration to Cisco Unified Communications Manager through batch project.
3 Create an Infrastructure template for LDAP authentication to enable authentication in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager again (you must choose the option "Yes" for "Use LDAP Authentication for
End Users" attribute). Push this configuration to Cisco Unified Communications Manager through batch
project.
4 You must run Infrastructure synchronization from Provisioning UI to identify LDAP directory in Cisco
Unified Communications Manager, before you start provisioning the services for users in Prime
Collaboration Provisioning.
Note
Single LDAP synchronization is compatible with Cisco Unified CM 10.5.1 and above only.
General Information About LDAP Synchronization
• Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning only reads the user information from the LDAP server. Cisco
Prime Collaboration Provisioning does not write any information to the LDAP server.
• Only Microsoft Active Directory servers 2000, 2003, and 2008 are supported as LDAP servers.
• LDAP synchronization only creates the users; it does not add their services to their user records. Make
sure you run domain synchronization after LDAP synchronization so that the users’ services are added
to their user records.
• The user search base configured in LDAP services in the domain is used to synchronize LDAP users
into the Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning user database.
• You cannot delete an LDAP server which is associated to a Domain. You must remove the LDAP server
from the Domain to delete it.

Step 4
Choose Provisioning Setup.
In the Domains pane, select a Domain and click Edit.
In the Domain Configuration page, select the Directory Source you have configured on the Device Setup
page.
In the settings pane, you configure the information Prime Collaboration Provisioning gets from the servers
by entering or choosing the details as suitable in the respective fields. These settings are used to synchronize
and authenticate the users from the Directory/ACS server to Prime Collaboration.
The LDAP Settings pane contains the following sub-panes:
• LDAP Sync Policy
• LDAP Field Mappings
• Domain LDAP Filters
• Service Area LDAP Filters
• User Role LDAP Filters
For more information on LDAP Sync Policy and Field Mappings sub-panes, see the Table 22: LDAP Settings
Fields table.
While synchronizing users from LDAP server, you can use the Domain, Service Area, and User Role LDAP
filters when the User Type is enabled for Automatic Service Provisioning. These filters help identify the
default Service Area and User Role to be used during Automatic Service Provisioning.
For more information on LDAP Filters, see the Table 24: LDAP Synchronization Filters table.
Step 5
For all the changes on the LDAP server to be synchronized to Prime Collaboration Provisioning, select the
following:
• Mode—Authentication and Synchronization under LDAP Sync Policy sub-pane.
• Update existing user details—All fields under LDAP Sync Policy sub-pane.
• Action when LDAP users deleted—Delete user only under LDAP Sync Policy sub-pane.
• User Search base—Enter a user search base under LDAP Sync Policy sub-pane.
• Unlike Cisco Unified CM, Prime Collaboration Provisioning supports only one user search base
for a domain. However, you can create multiple domains for multiple user search.
• When adding an LDAP user in Cisco Unified CM through Provisioning UI, the user search base
in Provisioning domain and CUCM must be the same.
• Filter query for synchronization—Synchronize all users. To do this, click the Edit icon under Domain

Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Configuring LDAP Server Synchronization
Note
Using "IN" filter in Automatic Service Provisioning, you can configure multiple queries. For example:
• To fetch multiple Directory Numbers, separate the search string using semi-colon. For example:
4930;5930.
• To fetch multiple combinations of Directory Numbers, separate the search string using an asterisk
and semi-colon. For example: 40105*;40116*;40127*;.
• For contact phone numbers, you can use:
• '+' symbol in search criteria such as +44*
• '/+' symbol in search criteria such as /+44*
• For contact phone numbers, using "IN" filter with multiple values in search criteria with comma as
delimiter, you can use '/+' symbol such as /+44*, /+55*,/+33*.
• Similarly, using "IN" filter you can synchronize multiple users from LDAP server with comma as
delimiter. For example: User1, User2, User3.
• Wildcard character (*) is allowed in the filter, it can be used either in beginning or in the end of the
field.
Likewise, you can use '=' and '!=' operators to configure queries. For example, if you provide a single
userID:
• The '=' operator synchronizes only that user from LDAP server.
• The '!=' operator does not synchronize that user alone from LDAP server. All other users are
synchronized.
Using * with userID such as User123* fetches all the users whose id starts with User123.
The table below lists the field mapping between Prime Collaboration Provisioning and the LDAP server. The
data in the specified Provisioning field is synchronized with the user data in the corresponding LDAP field.

Description
Service area LDAP filter
Use this filter to specify which users should be
assigned to each service area. Service area LDAP
filter will not be enabled if there is no service area
configured in that domain.
Note
Role LDAP filter
This filter is only applicable for
Auto-Provisioning.
Use this filter to specify which User Role should be
applied for auto-provisioning the default services. If
this filter is not configured, users that are
synchronized from LDAP server is mapped to the
default role configured in Business Rules and
auto-provisioning happens only if the default User
Role in domain Business Rules is enabled for
auto-provisioning.
Both the default User Role and the User Role that
matches with the filter is assigned for the user if:
• the User Role specified in the filter is different
from default Business Rule, and
• the filter criteria matches.
Note
This filter is only applicable for
Auto-Provisioning.
Service Area and User Role filters will not
be enabled, if you have selected the
synchronization mode as "Authentication
Only." Also, both the filters are applied only
when auto-provisioning is enabled.
While creating the service area filter, you can configure the following settings:
• Assign new line from the extension block
• Apply mask to LDAP synchronized telephone numbers. You can enter the mask value that needs to be
applied on the LDAP synchronized number in the Mask field. Note the following points while entering
the mask value:
• The valid values for Mask field are 0-9, plus symbol (+), upper case x (X), and backslash followed
by plus symbol (\+).
• It can start with +, \+, X, or numerals (0-9).
• It can be a combination of numerals and character X (for example, 12XXX, +XX234, XX231XXX).
• E.164 characters (+ and \+) can be used only at the beginning of the value. These characters should
not be used in between the numbers or X.
Provisioning applies the mask to the LDAP synchronized number after removing the non-numeric
characters and provisions the line accordingly.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
115
Synchronizing Processors, Users, and Domains
Configuring LDAP Server Synchronization
Note
Mask field is enabled only if you have checked the Apply Mask to LDAP Synchronized
Telephone Numbers check box.
Mask option is available only for users synchronized from LDAP server. Also, masked numbers are used only
during auto-provisioning Line for LDAP users.
• If you have checked the Assign New Line from the Extension Block check box, even if there is a LDAP
synchronized number, Provisioning selects the directory number from the DN block and provision the
line accordingly.
• If you have checked the Apply Mask to LDAP Synchronized Telephone Numbers check box:
◦When there is no LDAP synchronized number, Prime Collaboration Provisioning will not provision
Line service for the user.
◦When there is LDAP synchronized number, Prime Collaboration Provisioning applies the mask
on LDAP synchronized number and uses the masked number for auto provisioning the line.
• If both the check boxes are checked, LDAP synchronized number is masked and masked DN is used
for auto-provisioning the line. If there is no LDAP synchronized number, Prime Collaboration
Provisioning selects a number from the DN block and provision the line accordingly.
• If both the check boxes are unchecked, LDAP synchronized number is used for provisioning the line.
LDAP Synchronization Report
This section provides explanations for some of the messages that can appear in the LDAP Synchronization
report.
The following users were not created because they are already present in another Domain: user1, user2
The listed users are present in the LDAP server, but could not be created in Provisioning in the current Domain,

device and from Provisioning fails. In order to delete the services in a device, a single order is created for
each user and the order status is shown in the above report with the order ID. You have to manually delete
these users and corresponding services. You can click on the link provided for the user ID in the above report
to access these user records.
The following user and associated services were deleted successfully: UserId, OrderId, Status
This message appears when Delete user with Services is enabled, and deleting the user and services from the
device and from Provisioning succeeds.

The following users were not deleted because the delete option was not set: user1 user2
The users were deleted in the LDAP server, but they were not deleted during the LDAP synchronization, since
Do not delete is enabled.
To fix this problem, enable either Delete User Only or Delete User with Services option, and run the LDAP
synchronization again.

Configuration Templates Overview
You can configure Unified Communications Manager, Unified Communications Manager Express, Unity
Express, Unity, Unity Connection, and Generic IOS Router using Configuration Templates. You can add,
edit, or delete the configuration settings of a device using the Infrastructure Configuration page.
Configuration Templates enable you to consistently auto-configure the Cisco Unified Communications voice
infrastructure. In Provisioning, you can create templates to initially configure or reconfigure Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, and Cisco Unity Express.
Templates can contain an unlimited number of objects. This is limited only by the time required to execute
(push to a device) the template.
You can create generic Cisco IOS Prebuilt templates to auto-configure specific functionality on any device
supported by the Provisioning that has the Cisco IOS generic router capability configured.
Templates may contain subtemplates as well, permitting reuse of common types of configuration information
across higher level templates. Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express and Cisco Unity Express
templates contain Cisco IOS software text or CLI text with keywords.
Provisioning templates contain more than twenty different types of objects, such as device pools, route
partitions, calling search spaces, route lists, route groups, or route patterns. Objects placed in a template can
have embedded keywords within their attributes.
While pushing a template to a device, you can specify an optional keyword, which defines the values of the
keywords to be used (replaced) during the provisioning operation.
Configuration Templates enable you to define a standard set of configurations that you can use in multiple
situations, such as rolling out new offices, locations, remote sites, or organizational overlays.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x

Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Infrastructure Configuration Products for Devices
You can use the Configuration Templates to do the following:
• Configure a new Unified Communications Manager, Unified Communications Manager Express, Unity,
Unity Connection, Unity Express, and Generic IOS Router.
• Perform an incremental rollout on an existing Unified Communications Manager, Unified Communications
Manager Express, Unity Express, or Generic IOS Router (for example, deploying a new site or location).
To create Configuration Templates, you must add infrastructure configuration products to the Configuration
Template. Infrastructure Configuration Product Fields, on page 293 lists the infrastructure configuration
products that are available in Provisioning.
Not all fields in an infrastructure configuration template are applicable on all Cisco Unified Communications
Manager versions.
You can have up to five levels of nested templates. The nested templates cannot be looped.

Creating Configuration Templates
You must first create a configuration template and then add items to the template. The items that you add can
be either individual objects or existing Configuration Templates.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
126
Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Creating Configuration Templates
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Choose Infrastructure Setup > Configuration Templates.
In the Set Up Configuration Template page, click the New icon.
Enter a name for the Configuration Template in the prompt that appears, and then click OK.
To update an existing configuration template, select the template and update the required information.
To rename, click the template you have created. In the rename dialog box, change the name and then click
Save.
To remove a configuration template, click Remove Configuration Template.
To copy a Configuration Template, click Copy Configuration Template. A copy of the Configuration
Template is created with _copy added to the template name.
Adding Items to a Configuration Template
The items that you add can be either individual objects or existing Configuration Templates.
You can specify unique names for these infrastructure objects based on the Domain or Service Area that they
belong to by incorporating the variables DOMAIN and SERVICEAREA in the infrastructure object names.
When the Configuration Template is pushed, Provisioning replaces DOMAIN and SERVICEAREA with the
name of the Domain and Service Area, respectively, so that new objects are automatically assigned unique
names. This provides the infrastructure elements required for Provisioning partitioning on Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, or Cisco Unity Express.
Configuration is performed in the order that is defined in the Configuration Template. The same dependencies
exist for configuring these objects automatically that exist for configuring them manually. Therefore you must
ensure that objects are defined in the Configuration Template in the appropriate order.
For more information regarding these dependencies and other requirements, refer to the appropriate Cisco
Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, or Cisco Unity Express
documentation.
Many of the infrastructure configuration product fields allow you to add items to the lists and let you move
the items up and down in the lists. The lists in the infrastructure configuration product fields display the items
that already exist on the Cisco Unified Communications Managers only. You can also define items in a
Configuration Template that are created when the Configuration Template is pushed. The new items will only
exist once the Configuration Template is pushed. These items may be requirements for other items in the same
Configuration Template.
For this reason, Provisioning allows you to manually add options to the lists. For example, you can define a
route partition and a call search space in the same Configuration Template. To define the call search space
item in the Configuration Template, you must specify a route partition, but the route partition will not appear
as an option in the Configuration Template because it has not been created.
To add items to a configuration template:

Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Generating a Configuration Using a Template
Creating a New Keyword List and Adding Keywords
If you are creating Configuration Templates that use the same defined parameter multiple times, you can set
up a keyword substitution to simplify the process. Keyword substitution allows you to create a string, and
wherever that string appears in a Configuration Template, it is replaced by the value that is associated with
it.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose Infrastructure Setup > Configuration Templates.
Step 2
Step 3
Click the Choose an Existing Configuration Template icon and select the required template.
In the Set Up Configuration Template page, click the Creating a New Keyword List icon, next to the Key
Word Substitution List.
Step 4
Step 5
Enter a name for the Key Word List, click OK.
In the Keyword field, enter a string that begins with a dollar sign ($).
The string should look like the following:
${Region}
Keyword replacement will fail if you do not place ${} around all keywords, and add characters at
the end of the keyword.
Enter a corresponding value in the Value field. For example, enter San Jose.
Click Update and then click Done.
Now, in this example, whenever you enter the string ${Region}, the value San Jose will be substituted for
the string.
Caution
Step 6
Step 7
You can also add more keywords and its corresponding values and then click Done.
Generating a Configuration Using a Template
You apply Configuration Templates by pushing them to the appropriate Domain, Service Area, and/or device.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Open the Set Up Configuration Template page for the template (see Creating Configuration Templates, on
page 126).
(Optional) Select a Domain. The Service Areas and device lists are populated with the Service Areas and
devices that belong to the selected Domain.
If a Domain is not selected, all the devices in Provisioning are listed.
Select a Service Area and/or device. Selecting a Service Area updates the device list, showing only devices
that belong to the selected Service Area.
After selecting a Service Area or device, each template item displays Supported or Unsupported. If an item
is unsupported, it is not a valid template item for the device selected or devices in the Service Area. The
template item will not be added to the generated template.

Importing and Exporting a Configuration Template
Step 4
Step 5
(Optional) Select Keyword List. This is required only if the template contains keywords. See Creating a New
Keyword List and Adding Keywords, on page 131 for creating Keyword Lists.
Click Generate Configuration, then click OK.
The configuration is generated and the Batch Project page appears. For information on scheduling the
provisioning of the configuration, see Managing Batch Projects, on page 173.
Importing and Exporting a Configuration Template
Through the template import/export tool (configtemplate.sh), you can either import or export configuration
templates into your Provisioning server.
The configtemplate.sh file is located in the /opt/cupm/sep/ipt/bin folder.
When using the template import/export tool, be aware of the following:
• When importing templates into a different Provisioning server, if the template which is to be imported
contains attributes that are specific to a Call Processor, the Call Processor must be added and synchronized
in the Provisioning server in which the templates will be imported.
• Do not modify the exported configuration template files.
• Nested templates should not be imported/exported separately.
• When you use the all option, all the files must be in the same directory. If they are not, then the import
will fail.
• When a nested template is specified, the dependent templates of the nested template are not
imported/exported. The dependent templates must be imported/exported individually, or they can be
imported/exported together if you use the all option, and if all the dependent files are located in the
specified directory.
Prebuilt Cisco IOS templates cannot be exported in this manner. The prebuilt templates are never stored
in the Provisioning database. They are implicitly imported when they are copied into the subdirectory
under the ios-pre-built directory.
Importing a Configuration Template
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
On the Provisioning system, open a command prompt.
At the command prompt, navigate to the /opt/cupm/sep/ipt/bin folder and run the following
command:./configtemplate.sh -import <XML file name> -d <directory>, where:
• <XML file name>—The name of the template to import.
Note
Alternatively, you can replace <XML file name> with all. This imports all templates (xml files)
that are present in the directory.
• <directory>—The directory location from which to import the files. This is optional. If this argument
is not included, it will default to the current directory.

On the Provisioning system, open a command prompt.
At the command prompt, navigate to the /opt/cupm/sep/ipt/bin folder and run the following command:
./configtemplate.sh -export <template name> -d <directory> where,
• <template name>—The name of the template to export.
Alternatively, you can replace <template name> with all. This exports all templates that are present.
• <directory>—The directory location to which to export the files. This is optional. If this argument is
not included, it will default to the current directory.
For example: ./configtemplate.sh -export RoutePattern -d /opt/cupm/templates
Note
Always use new directory names when you are exporting the templates. If you use an existing directory
name, the new templates will not be exported correctly.
Customer Domain Template
If your implementation has more than one Domain, you can configure the Customer Domain Template
according to the default business rules and user types that you require for your implementation.
When you create new Domains, they inherit the standard set of business rules and user types from the Customer
Domain Template. You can then change the business rules and user types as required for each new Domain.
Changes made to the Customer Domain Template affect only new Domains created after that point.
The Customer Domain Template is created by default when you install Provisioning. You configure it by
specifying business rules and user roles for it the same way that business rules and user roles are specified
for new Domains.
If you want to use these new Provisioning features, you must edit the Customer Domain templates.
Provisioning Prebuilt Functionality
Provisioning provides additional functionality for the prebuilt template files:
• Allows the keywords in the swconfig.txt file to be specified using the generic Cisco IOS template format
for keywords.
The format of generic Cisco IOS templates is:
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
133
Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Overview of Infrastructure Configuration
${KEY_WORDNAME}
Provisioning allows keyword names to contain additional characters supported for Generic Cisco IOS
Templates, in particular, the dash (-).
Prebuilt Cisco IOS format is:
@KEYWORD_NAME
• Allows three additional, optional columns to be added to the Config-UserGuide-<Name>.txt file, for
setting keywords to default values and for validation of keyword values:
◦Type—One of the four types that determine the keyword validation. The types are STRING,
NUMERIC, IPV4, and IPV6. When you enter a value for the local keyword list that is associated
with the prebuilt template, it is validated and an error message is displayed if the validation fails.
You must correct any errors before saving the template item.
◦Default Value—Value that is used initially while creating a local keyword list.
◦Length—Length of the type STRING must not exceed this value.
Though you can use the value CUPM_SKIP for any keyword, any line that has this value is not
included in the Cisco IOS commands sent to the device.
Provisioning Unsupported Prebuilt Functionality
If a keyword name ends with empty brackets ([]), it means that this keyword can be assigned one or more
values. Provisioning allows you to set only one value.
Overview of Infrastructure Configuration
The Infrastructure Configuration page of Provisioning enables you to browse the infrastructure configuration
settings of a Call Processor and Unified Message Processor. Through this page, you can add, edit, or delete
the configuration settings of a Call Processor and Unified Message Processor. Also, you can view pending
operations and schedule operations (see Scheduling an Infrastructure Configuration Task, on page 136).
To work with infrastructure configuration, you must be assigned the Infrastructure Configuration Management
authorization role and be assigned permissions to the corresponding infrastructure products (see Managing
Infrastructure Configuration Permissions, on page 202 ).
For descriptions of the fields for the infrastructure configuration products, see Infrastructure Configuration
Products for Devices, on page 120.
The Infrastructure Configuration feature applies to Call Processors that are based on Cisco Unified
Communications Manager devices and Unified Message Processors that are based on Cisco Unity Connection
only.
Cross-launching Devices from Infrastructure Configuration
Prime Collaboration Provisioning allows an administrator to cross launch configured devices such as CUCM,
Unity Connection, and IM and Presence Services, from the Infrastructure Configuration page. When you
cross-launch a specific device, you can access the device UI and perform any operation directly on the server
of the specific device that you have cross launched.

Adding an Infrastructure Configuration Instance
Rest your mouse pointer over a device in the object selector widget, and click the Quick View icon to view
the version and IP address of the device being used. Refer to Adding Devices to know the list of actions that
can be performed through device Quick View.
Note
• Cross launch to Cisco TMS requires HTTPS to be enabled on the TMS server. If HTTPS is not
enabled, you must change the URL to HTTP in the cross launch window.
• When you cross launch CUCM, the Find and List page appears. To learn how to perform specific
operations on CUCM, refer the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide, Release 10.0.
To learn how to perform specific operations on Unity Connection, refer the
System Administration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 10.0
To learn how to perform specific operations on IM and Presence Service, refer the
Monitoring Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence, Release 10.0
Adding an Infrastructure Configuration Instance
To add an Infrastructure Configuration Instance:
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Choose Infrastructure Setup > Infrastructure Configuration. All available devices are listed in the left
pane.
Expand each device to view the infrastructure product of that device.
Click the desired infrastructure product to cross launch (Cross-launching Devices from Infrastructure
Configuration) or launch it natively:
• When you cross-launch, the Find and List page of the device appears. Click Add New, enter the necessary
information, and click Save.
• Some of the infrastructure products (whose versions are earlier than 10.0) are launched natively, where
you can add a product instance and configure it within Provisioning. Perform the following:
1 Click Add and enter the necessary information in the Infrastructure Configuration - configure Product
Instance page. An asterisk next to a field indicates a required field. For descriptions of the
infrastructure configuration product fields, see Infrastructure Configuration Product Fields, on page
293.
2 Click Apply or Save as Draft.
Apply sends the configuration immediately to the device. Save as Draft saves the configuration
locally only. At a later time, the service can be pushed to the device either by clicking Apply or by
using infrastructure configuration scheduling (see Scheduling an Infrastructure Configuration Task,
on page 136).
Also, when you choose Save as Draft, the provisioning state of the object becomes Uncommitted
Add (for details on provisioning states, see Infrastructure Provisioning States, on page 137). The
operational status is inactive, meaning the object has not been pushed to the device.

Note
Clicking Apply may cause the devices to restart, and end calls in progress unexpectedly.
To copy an Infrastructure Configuration instance for a native launch, click Copy. In the Infrastructure
Configuration - Configure Product Instance page, click the Draft Configuration tab and enter the necessary
information. An asterisk next to a field indicates a required field. Applied Configuration tab shows the already
configured instance. Click Apply or Save as Draft. The infrastructure configuration instance is saved with
a “copy of” prefix.
To delete an Infrastructure Configuration instance for a native launch, you can do one of the following:
• To immediately delete the configured instance from the device, click Delete.
• If you want to push the order at a later time, click Schedule Delete.
• If your configured instance is still saved locally, click Delete Draft.
The provisioning state of the object becomes Uncommitted Delete (for details on provisioning states, see
Infrastructure Provisioning States, on page 137). The operational status is active.
Delete Draft does not make that instance unavailable for selection in other infrastructure products or user
services. For example, if a route partition is marked for deletion, it is still available for selection in a Line or
Phone product, as well as Calling Search Space.
To edit an Infrastructure Configuration Instance for a native launch, click the instance for which you want to
make changes. In the Draft configuration tab, make the desired changes. An asterisk next to a field indicates
a required field. Enter the required information.
You can click Apply or Save as Draft to save your changes.
Note
To clear the value of a setting that has a numeric value in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you
must enter a zero for the value. If you just clear the value, the setting does not get unset in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager.
Scheduling an Infrastructure Configuration Task
The infrastructure configuration scheduling feature enables you to group and schedule instances with pending
operations to be provisioned.
Infrastructure configuration scheduling requires you to create tasks. In a task you can add pending configurations
and they can be either add, modify or delete operations. You can have pending items from more than one
Processor in the same task, and you can schedule this task to run at a fixed time or schedule it to run after
successful completion of another task.
To view the infrastructure configuration scheduled tasks, click Schedule Configuration tab (Choose
Infrastructure Setup > Infrastructure Configuration ).
You can narrow your results by using the search function. To access the search function, in the results page,
click Show Filter, and the search criteria appears.
The infrastructure configuration task is based on its initiation type.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
136
Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Scheduling an Infrastructure Configuration Task
If the task’s initiation type is date/time, the execution of the task begins at the scheduled date/time. An order
is created with all items in the task. The task status changes to in progress and it can no longer be modified
or deleted. If all items in the task are completed successfully, the task’s status changes to complete. If any one
detail fails, then the entire task is aborted. An aborted or failed task cannot be rerun. You will need to create
a new task.
If the initiation type is another task, then the task begins after the successful completion of the initiating task.
If the initiating task fails, this task will never begin, which will be indicated in the List of Tasks page.
Note
After a task is created, it cannot be updated if it is in progress, completed, or failed. Before the task begins,
you can change the schedule date or time and add or remove pending items that should be pushed as part
of the task.

Overview of Business Rules
Prime Collaboration Provisioning contains a predefined set of business rules that determine how components
within Prime Collaboration Provisioning are used. These business rules control the processing of orders, the
behavior of the synchronization processes, and the default values for various objects in the system.
Business rules are applied at a Domain level. When you install Prime Collaboration Provisioning, you configure
the business rules in the Customer Domain Template according to your business processes. When you create
a new Domain, it inherits the standard set of business rules from the Customer Domain Template. You can
then change the business rules as required for each new Domain. Changes made to the Customer Domain
Template affect only new Domains created after that point. For information on Customer Domain Template,
see Customer Domain Template, on page 133
In addition to business rules, new Domains inherit the default User Role information, and folders are
automatically created in the Inventory Manager Instance Browser for the users, Service Areas, and Voice
Terminals that will be placed into that Domain.
Rules can be data driven (Prime Collaboration Provisioning uses the Data field), enabled or disabled driven,
or both. The descriptions of the rules indicate which applies.
Note
For some business rules, the Data or Enabled field is not applicable, which is indicated by N/A. All user
input in fields marked as N/A is disregarded by the system.

The following procedure uses the AssignSoftPhoneName rule as an example of how to change rule properties.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose Administration > Rules.
Step 2
Step 3
In the Rule Configuration page, select the Domain that you want to change the rule for.
Select the rule under Configure Rule.
Click the Edit icon. The Data and Enabled fields become active.
Make the required changes and click Save. The changes are added to the AssignSoftPhoneName rule.
To configure the Domain Synchronization Rules, select Configure Domain Sync Rules and select the
synchronization rules. See Configuring Business Rules for Domain Synchronization, on page 99 for details.
Step 4
Step 5
When you configure Provisioning, it is critical that you plan how you will use your business rules and how
you want the Provisioning components to work. At a minimum, you must consider the following rules:
• AssociateAllUsersInCallProcessor
• CreateSelfCareAccounts
• EmailSender

Batch Provisioning
Batch Provisioning
To create users and provision their services automatically use batch provisioning. Batch provisioning enables
you to easily roll out a new office, or transition from legacy systems.
You can order user services on an individual basis for a single user. But when deploying a large number of
services, you should combine them into a single batch. Batch provisioning enables you to create a single batch
that contains multiple types of orders.
You can use batch provisioning to add, update, or cancel a Domain (with or without LDAP settings). You
can also add, update, or delete user roles using batch provisioning.
Unlike BAT files that run only on the Cisco Unified Communication application they are deployed, Provisioning
batches can run on one or many applications managed by Provisioning.
Batches can be run immediately upon uploading to Prime Collaboration Provisioning, or they can be scheduled
to run at a later time. For more information on Batch Projects, see Managing Batch Projects, on page 173
You can also combine multiple types of services into a single batch operation. For example, a batch can contain
a combination of phone and voicemail additions or changes.
You can add, change, or cancel the following infrastructure objects through batch provisioning:
• App User
• Call Search Space
• Cisco IOS Conference Bridge
• Class of Service
• Conference Now
• Date Time Group
• Device Mobility Group
• Device Pool
• Emergency Location (ELIN) Group
• External Service
• Gateway Settings
• Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
• LDAP Authentication
• LDAP Directory
• Location
• Media Resource Group
• Media Resource Group List
• Message Waiting On/Off
• Phone NTP Reference

Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Creating Batch Action Files
• Feature Group Template
Note
You can add, change and cancel SoftKey Template and Feature Group Template.
You cannot update or delete a standard template. Only user-defined templates can be updated and deleted.
Creating Batch Action Files
To complete batch provisioning, you must do the following:
1 Create a spreadsheet of users and the services to be provisioned (this typically includes phones and lines),
then convert the spreadsheet to a tab-delimited text file called a batch action file.
Note
If you are editing the batch file (.txt ) using Excel and saving the updated spreadsheet as tab-delimited
text file, double quotes might be added for the values that contain special characters (especially comma),
because Excel adds double quotes to the special characters when you convert the spreadsheet to
tab-delimited text file. These quotations may cause errors when you run the batch project. To avoid this,
you must remove the double quotes from the tab-delimited text file before running the batch project.
2 Upload the batch action file into a Provisioning batch project.
3 Run the batch project or schedule it to run later. Provisioning creates the users and provisions the lines
and phones based on the data in the file.
You can also view a list of scheduled projects, and the details of the projects that are in progress.
While provisioning the orders, you can see the status as Completed. Click the Completed link to view the
device related updates.
Batch action files must contain a single row of column headers. The data columns can be in any order, but
must be in a tab-delimited text file. You can compile the data in any text editor, provided that the resulting
file conforms to these guidelines. For example, you can create batch files in Microsoft Excel and then export
them as tab-delimited files.

Table 34: Batch Action File Columns for Deleting Users
Column
Description
Domain
(Optional) Domain where the user exists.
OnlyFromCUPM
(Optional) If this column is enabled (set to Y), any services on the user record for
the user will be moved to the Global Resources namespace, and the s or their services
on the actual device will not be removed. If this column is not enabled, the user will
be removed from both Provisioning and the device.
Tip When a user is deleted with OnlyFromCUPM enabled, a subsequent Domain
synchronization creates the user (provided it matches the Domain synchronization
rules), and the matched services appear in its user record. Alternatively, the user can
be manually created in the correct Domain followed by a Domain synchronization
to match the services. This provides you with a way to move users between Domains
or move user services across Service Areas.

You can change the Caller Input attributes using the batch project. Note the following while creating the batch
file for changing Caller Input attributes:
The following attributes have three headers (columns) in batch file, where the first column represents the call

column represents the destination to which calls are sent, and the third column represents the value for Handler
Conversation (Attempt Transfer or Go Directly to Greetings).
• If Caller Exits
• If no input
• If No Selection
• If Caller Presses Zero
For more detailed information on the attributes that are required in a batch action file based on different
services, refer http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Cisco_Prime_Collaboration_Provisioning_Batch_File_Attributes.
Guidelines for Creating Batch Action Files
Download sample batch files from Cisco.com. You can add additional columns to the sample batch files as
required.
When creating batch action files, follow these guidelines:
• While creating batch action values, colon delimiter must be used to enter multiples values. For example,
while creating a new CallingSearchSpace that contains multiple Route Partitions, use RP1:RP2:RP3.
• To add comments to a batch action file, insert # (pound symbol) followed by the comment. You can add
any information regarding that batch. These comments are ignored at the time of importing the batch
action file.
For example:
◦### The Domain ID and Last Name are mandatory fields.
◦# This is to deploy a new site.
• To include multiple product types without adding multiple columns to a batch action file, insert >>
(greater than symbol twice). You must insert >> at the beginning of the header row in a batch action
file.
For example:
>>OrderType
UserID
ProductName ServiceArea
add
icadmin
Route
Partition
>>OrderType
UserID
ProductName ServiceArea
deleteDevice UserID

You must insert greater than symbol twice (>>). If there is a single greater than symbol
(>) instead of two, then the batch action file gets imported, but the order fails.

Guidelines for Creating Batch Action Files
• If you want the users that will be created to have self-care accounts, you must enable the
CreateSelfCareAccounts rule for all applicable Domains.
• MAC Address is required when ProductName is Phone (or a bundle containing a Phone) and Phone
Type is not a virtual phone (for example, CTI Port).
• New MAC Address is required when changing phones.
• Name is required when canceling Remote Destination Profile and Extension Mobility Access products.
• Mac Address is required when ProductName is Phone.
• Voicemail Alias is required when ProductName is Voicemail.
• When canceling a Line or an Extension Mobility Line product, the directory number and route partition
are required.
• If you delete VG202,VG 204 and VG 224 products, all the phones in the Device and Provisioning will
be deleted. You will get a warning message regarding this and only after the confirmation, the phones
are deleted. Domain synchronization must be done to clean the customer records associated with the
phones.
• Cisco Unity devices ( Cisco Unity Connection, and Cisco Unity Express) do not support all products
and services. If the batch action file is configured for a product which is not supported by the device in
the specified Service Area, batch provisioning will fail.
• Product attributes that require user input during the manual order entry process are required to successfully
complete the equivalent order in a batch project. Examples include:
◦Phone Type—Type of phone (for example, Cisco 7960, Cisco 7912) if ordered product is a Phone
or a bundle that contains a Phone.
◦Line Type—Type of line (for example, Auto-Assigned Line or Chosen Line) if ordered product
is a Line or a bundle that contains a Line.
◦Directory Number—Required when ProductName is Line and Type is Chosen Line. Additionally,
ordering a product with a dependency that is not met by the order itself (for example, ordering a
single Line) requires a column specifying the dependent object.
◦Route Partition—Required when ProductName is Line and Order Type is Change.
• If the product being ordered has a dependency that is not met by the order itself (for example, a single
Line), a column specifying the dependent object is required. Examples include:
◦SelectedPhone—MAC address of the phone to add the line to.
◦SelectedLine—The SelectedLine value should be provided based on the product name:
◦If the Voicemail is added to Remote Destination Profile Line, you must provide the value in
the following format: {RDP profile Name}Directory Number.
◦If the Voicemail is added to Line product, you must provide the value in the following format:
{Phone Type : MAC Address}Directory Number.
◦If the Voicemail is added to EM Line product, you must provide the value in the following
format: {Phone Type : profile name}Directory Number.
◦If the Voicemail is added to Line without endpoint, you must provide the Directory Number
alone.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
171
Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Guidelines for Creating Batch Action Files
Note
If the Line product has route partition, you must provide the route partition along with
the Directory Number (for example, for adding Voicemail to Remote Destination Profile
Line, you must provide: {RDP profile Name}Directory Number/Route Partition).
◦SelectedVoicemail—Directory number of the voicemail to add unified messaging to.
◦SelectedEM_Access—Name of the EM_Access (device profile) to add the EM_Line to.
Bundles that contain more than one instance of a base product require their attributes to be specified
with a (1), (2), and so on, at the end of the column name. For example, Line Type(1), Directory
Number(1).
• For bundled products, if the product attribute name is the same for different base products, append the
product name in the attribute to differentiate them.
For example, Calling Search Space is an attribute in both Phone and Line. For the product Phone Service,
you can specify Phone Calling Search Space and Line Calling Search Space.
• Speed dial information can be provided in the following ways:
◦Directly—Used where there is one column. The column header is Speed Dial Info. The expected
format is index:number:label, repeated for each speed dial, semicolon delimited, where index is
the position of the speed dial (for example; 1, 4, 5, and so on), number is the phone number, and
label is the speed dial name (for example, 1:8675306:Joe;4:888:Voicemail).
If you use this format to add an additional line, you must reenter all the speed dial information
previously entered in the column and add the new speed dial information.
This format is recommend for initial setup of speed dials. To add speed dials to an existing list of
speed dials, you must use the format described in the next sub-bullet.
◦As matching sets of columns—One set of columns can be called Speed Dial n (where n is the speed
dial position), and the other can be called Speed Dial n Name. This format appends new speed
dials to the existing speed dial list.
For example:
Speed Dial 1
Speed Dial 1 Name
Speed Dial 4
8675306
Joe
888
Speed Dial 4 Name
Voicemail
You can pause the speed dial number by introducing a comma. A comma introduces a delay of 2
seconds. You can introduce any number of commas in a speed dial directory number.
• Line Group information can be provided in the format LineGroupName:position. This is repeated for
each Line Group, semicolon delimited. LineGroupName is the name of the line group. Position is the
position of the directory number within the selected Line Group, and it can have values of last (or LAST),
or numbers from 1 through 100; for example, LG1:1;LG2:5;LG3:last.
To add an additional line, you must enter all of the Line Group information. The Line Group column
headings must be listed as Line Groups(1) and Line Groups(2).
• If there are multiple instances of a column (for example, multiple directory numbers), each instance
must be specified with a (1), (2), and so on, at the end of the column name; for example, Directory
Number(1), Directory Number(2).
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
172
Configuring Templates in Provisioning
Managing Batch Projects
• In the provisioning attribute for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express Phone and Line
configuration template, you must use a tilde (~) as a separator; for example, username AAAAA password
BBBBBBBB~pin 676771. The column header for this attribute is CME Phone Configuration Template.
• To unset the value of a provisioning attribute that has a numeric value in Cisco Unified Communications
Manager, you must enter a zero for the value. If you just enter an empty value, the provisioning attribute
does not get unset in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
• While placing an order for voicemail account, if you use the Chosen Line option and select E.164 format
directory number, Provisioning will set the extension number by removing the + symbol from the
directory number. But the Alternate Extension field will not be auto populated. You have to enter the
directory number (along with the + symbol) in the Alternate Extension field in the batch file.
• You can provide the details in UTF-8 format, but the file encoding should be UTF-8 or UTF-8 Without
BOM. UTF-8 Without BOM encoding will be available in advanced text editor like Notepad++. UTF-8
encoding will be available in Notepad editor. UTF-8 characters will be converted to junk characters if
the file encoding is not specified as UTF-8 or UTF-8 Without BOM.
Keyword Usage in Batch Action Files
To perform specific functions, use the following keywords in batch action files:
• CUPM_BLANK—For the Add order type, no value will be provisioned for the attribute. For the Change
order type, the current attribute value will be either cleared (if applicable), or set to the default value
required by the processor.
Note
When using the Change order type for the set-only attributes that are an enumerated
type that supports a static list of valid values (for example, Calling Search Space
Activation Policy), CUPM_BLANK has no effect and the old values are retained.
• CUPM_SKIP—Skips the provisioning attribute when processing the action file. The attribute is not set
during the order. The previous configured value is retained.
When using CUPM_SKIP with the Add order type, not all attributes can be skipped. The following
attributes are not skipped:
◦Mandatory attributes (for example, Device Pool and Location) are not skipped. They use the
provisioning attribute settings configured at the Service Area level.
◦Device Description and Display (Internal Caller ID). These settings have rules, so they use the
values based on their rules.
• VL7DL—Used to separate values of a set-only attribute (For example: On,VL7DL,Call Recording
Enabled,VL7DL,None ).
Managing Batch Projects
Batch Provisioning support is provided for all the devices of Unified Communications Manager, Unity
Connection, Unity, Presence Processor, Unity Express, Call Manager Express, and Generic IOS Router. Users

Managing Endpoint Inventory
You can add, update, or remove endpoints using the endpoint inventory. You can add and update directory
numbers, reserve them for specific users, and clear directory numbers whose designated length of time in the
Reserved state has been exceeded.
In addition to the above, you can also search for endpoints that are not associated to any users and those unused
endpoints can be associated to a specific user.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning tracks the information about all services and users in an internal asset
management inventory system. This information can be viewed by an administrator.
You can view the endpoint inventory report based on the Domain. The following details are displayed in the

Managing Directory Number
In most cases, Service Area Directory Number Blocks (DNBs) are used to allocate directory numbers. However,
you can explicitly track (store and manage) directory numbers that are associated with each Service Area in
the Provisioning inventory.
You can add and update directory numbers, reserve them for specific users, and clear directory numbers whose
designated length of time in the Reserved state has been exceeded.
Note
To change the length of time that a directory number can remain in the Reserved state, you can modify
the DNReservationTimeout rule. For more information, see Overview of Business Rules, on page 138.
Directory numbers can be in these states: In-use, Reserved, or Available.
When a line is added, Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning allocates directory numbers using the following
process:
1 Checks if a directory has been reserved for the user.
2 Checks for a directory number in the Available state.
3 Checks the Service Area DNB for next available directory number.

Provisioning Dashboards and Reports Overview
On a day-to-day basis, operations personnel are likely to use the Dashboard displays to monitor the IP telephony
environment. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning has three dashboards. They are:
• Global Admin Dashboard—To manage the real-time information about the operational status of your
processor, device, domain, and users.
• Domain Admin Dashboard—To manage the real-time information about the operational status of your
domain related devices and users.
• User Dashboard—To manage the details of Running, Pending and Failed orders. The user dashboard is
shown for users other than admin, ordering and self-care roles.
The benefits of Provisioning Dashboard are:
• Easy access to information —You can view the processor capacity, device synchronization status,
pending orders, deployment details. You can also view the logged in and locked users.
• Easy customization—You can modify and personalize your dashboard and configuring your dashboard
layout to display what you want to see.
• Lightweight GUI—Data is displayed in the Unified Dashboard and use of external pop-up windows are
minimized.
Global Admin Dashboard
The Home dashboard allows you to view important statistics and details of the processors, pending orders,
status of the device synchronization, domains and their deployment details, and users who are logged in as
well as locked.
The dashboards are available under Home.
You can see all of this on a single page, instead of navigating through several pages. You can also click the
links provided in the dashboard to view the relevant details.

Managing Users
• Managing Users, page 191
Managing Users
A user is a person who has active IP Telephony services. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning allows you
to add users, synchronize user information, reapply the services, update user information, and domain specific
user roles.
The user role refers to the role that a user will have within an organization. This role dictates the services to
which the user is entitled. User roles are predefined in the system.
Note
Any out-of-band configurations (configurations that are performed directly on the processor but not
synchronized with Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning) can result in failed orders. You must always
synchronize Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning with the processors that it is provisioning.
Adding Users
To add users:
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Choose User Provisioning.
In the User Provisioning page, click Add.
In the Add User window, if you want to add user click User radio button, else click Open Space radio button,
and enter the User ID, Domain, and Name. Also, enter values for other fields if required.
Expand the Additional Settings pane to enter location and contact details.
To launch quick view for a particular domain or user role, while selecting the domain and user role, click the
drop-down menu and rest the mouse on quick view icon.

Managing Users
Adding Users
Note
• If you are removing a user who has services associated, you are notified to disassociate the
services before removing the user.
• To add a user, the LDAP integration field in Device Setuppage must be None.
• The user ID must be unique and case sensitive. Valid values are alphanumeric characters (A-Z,
a-z, 0-9), underscore (_), hyphen (-), period (.), apostrophe (‘), space ( ), and at sign (@).
• A user created locally in a Prime Collaboration Provisioning domain that is LDAP-integrated,
will be added to Cisco Unified Communications Manager as a local user. If the CUCM processor
has a synchronization schedule that sets its LDAP directory settings, the user will be updated
to LDAP-integrated after this synchronization occurs.
• For LDAP users, all fields, except Manager User ID, Directory URI, Voicemail email ID, in
the Additional Settings pane are updated with the values in LDAP only if you perform an LDAP
synchronization.
• To create a username for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express and Cisco Unity
Express, enter only alphabetical characters in the First Name and Last Name fields. If you use
other types of characters, orders for the user will fail.
• To create a username for Call Processors, the combination of characters for First Name and Last
Name cannot exceed 30 characters. If this limit is exceeded when you provision, the Call
Processor sends an error message.
• Room role allows you to provision endpoints without an associated user in the Call Processor.
• While selecting roles for user, the default or Employee user role should be configured to match
the typical setup of employees in your organization. If you do not configure the default or
Employee user role to meet your needs, you may not see all the desired options in the employee
user record.
• The DefaultUserType rule controls which user role is set as the default. Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning comes with the Employee user role configured as the default user role. If you
update the default user role name for a domain in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning,
ensure that you update the DefaultUserType rule with the new default role name for that domain.
• Changing the username does not also change the endpoint or line description field for the user
(if an endpoint or line was ordered for the previous username).
• For Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express and Cisco Unity Express, enter only
alphabetical characters in the First Name and Last Name fields. If you use other types of
characters, orders for the user will fail.
• For Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the combination of characters for First Name and
Last Name cannot exceed 30 characters.
• If a user does not have any associated services, you are prompted to confirm removal of the
user.
• When a service is disassociated from a user, the service is not deleted or disassociated on the
device (processor); it is only disassociated within Provisioning.
• When a subsequent Domain synchronization occurs, depending on the synchronization rules,
the user could be created again, and the services could be associated with the user.

Managing User Passwords
You can change password, reset to default, or prompt users to change their password after their initial login
to the application. You must have the correct privileges Table 51: Authorization Roles Description, on page
201 to manage passwords.
You can update the following:
• Provisioning login password
• Cisco Unified Communications Manager password
Note
The Cisco Unified Communications Manager password cannot be modified when the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager is configured to use external authentication.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning indicates that the password is updated, even
though it is not.
• Cisco Unified Communications Manager PIN
• Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express password
• Cisco Unity Subscriber password
• Cisco Unity Connection PIN
• Cisco Unity Connection Web password
When resetting the Cisco Unity Connection Web password, if the new password is not of required length,
the following error occurs: Unity Connection Password: Failed to reset credential: The
credential minimum length check failed. Minimum length = 8
• Unified CM MLPP Password
This password can be changed using the Manage PIN/Password option only when you set the MLPP
User Identification Number and MLPP Precedence Authorization Level for User Service (in the Service
Provisioning page).
The password should use a combination of at least three of the following:
• Uppercase letters
• Lowercase letters
• Numbers
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
197
Managing Users
Managing User Passwords
• Special characters
You can either change password, reset password to the Provisioning system default, or prompt user to change
their password when they login to the application next time. You can obtain the default values for the user
passwords from your Provisioning administrator, Managed Service Provider, or corporate IT department.
The following rules control the default passwords:
• DefaultCUPMPassword
• DefaultCallManagerPassword
• DefaultCallManagerPIN
• DefaultCallManagerDigestCredentials
• DefaultUnitySubscriberPassword
• DefaultWebAccessPassword
For more information about rules, seeOverview of Business Rules.
Note
After you reset the password of a user, you must inform the user of the default value that is required to
change their password.
To change, reset password, or prompt users to change their password the next time they login to the application:
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Open the Manage User page for the desired user (see Adding Users).
Click Manage Passwords.

• Password cannot have a character repeated consecutively more than three times.
• Password cannot be:
• Cisco or the reverse.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
198
Managing Users
Synchronizing a User
• Cisc0 (with zero substituted for o).
• C!sco (with exclamation mark substituted for i).
• Ci$co (with dollar sign substituted for s).
• Any variation of the previous that uses variations in case (uppercase or lowercase).
• Password must have lowercase, uppercase, special characters, and digits.
• 8 is the minimum number of characters required (by default, but can be changed).
• 80 is the maximum number of characters allowed (by default, but can be changed).
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning stores the password policy properties in a file named
passwordpolicy.properties under opt/cupm/sep. You can modify the properties file to change the password
policies as required. You must restart Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning whenever you modify the
password policies.
Note
• Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning users can use their passwords to log into Call Processors,
where they can view and edit the configuration details of the endpoints associated to them.
Although Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express allows a user to have only one associated endpoint,
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning overcomes this limitation, allowing more than one endpoint to be
associated to the user.
In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, new users are created with the same username appended
with a tilde (~) and sequence index (starting with 1) from the second and subsequent endpoints (for example,
TestUser and TestUser~1). You must use the exact username to view the corresponding endpoint details in
the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express web interface.
When you change the password value in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning, the password value is
changed for all of the corresponding user names in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express.
Synchronizing a User
The data of a user in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning is synchronized with the user data in the Call
Processor and Unity Connection. For more information about synchronizing, Overview of Domain
Synchronization.
When synchronizing users, remember the following:
• The username and phone number fields may display Unknown for users who were initially created on
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express and then later synchronized to Cisco Prime
Collaboration Provisioning.
You can update the user information through Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning, but be aware that
this information will be pushed to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express system, and
will overwrite any existing information for the user in the ephone description field.
• If a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express is the only device present in a Domain and Service
Area, during Domain synchronization users are not created in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning
if the ephone username command is not configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
199
Managing Users
Overview of Authorization Roles
Ensure that the ephone username command is configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Express for all users.
• For Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, when using the button command in ephone
configuration mode, ensure that you only use a colon (:) as the separator. Cisco Prime Collaboration
Provisioning only supports a colon as a separator in the button command. If any other separator is used,
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning does not display the line in the User Record Details page. Only
the endpoint is displayed.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Choose User Provisioning.
From the list of users, mouse over QuickView, and click Synchronize User.
Note
If the Domain contains a large number of users, the synchronization may take several minutes.
Overview of Authorization Roles
Two types of Provisioning user roles are available: global and domain specific. Based on their roles, Provisioning users are authorized
to perform various tasks in Provisioning (see Overview of Authorization Roles, on page 200 and Table 51: Authorization Roles
Description, on page 201). In the example below, the Domain administrators have administrative privileges for a specific domain.
They can set polices and rules for the domain assigned to them. The multi-domain administrators have privileges for more than one
domain. The global administrators have access to all Provisioning functionality.
Figure 5: Global and Domain Specific Roles in Provisioning
When you attach a Provisioning server with existing user data, then the globaladmin and domain-admin roles are synchronized
automatically in the User Management page.

Prime Collaboration Self-Care Overview
Prime Collaboration provides a Self-Care portal, which allows you to control preference settings such as user
name, password and so on. You can update your own account and services by using the Self-Care portal. The
Self-Care feature enables you to modify line settings, manage services, add reset Voicemail Box, Voicemail
PIN, and configure phone options. The Self-Care portal covers user services across multiple Cisco Unified
CM clusters, Unity Connection clusters and IM&P clusters.
Note
When Cisco Unified Communications Manager is shared between two or more users, and if one or more
users are using LDAP, Prime Self-Care will be used regardless of the version of Cisco Unified
Communications Manager.
To enable Prime Collaboration Self-Care, see Creating a Self-Care Account, on page 207.
Creating a Self-Care Account
You can create a Self-Care account in Prime Collaboration Provisioning. You can choose to enable or disable
Self-Care for each user you create.

Note
• To assign Self-Care roles, you must enable the CreateSelfCareAccounts rule while creating a new
domain. The CreateSelfCareAccounts rule is disabled by default.
• You can also assign Self-Care roles in an already existing domain by running the Self-Care Migration
Utility. This will enable Self-Care role for already existing users. See Self-Care User Migration
Script, on page 215 for details.
• The SelfCareUser check box is available only if the CreateSelfCareAccounts rule is enabled.
• After creating users, the users can login to Self-Care only after the globaladmin or domain-admin
changes their account password. By default, the user password is empty. You must specify a default
password in the DefaultCUPMPassword Data field and set Enabled to true to set the default password.

users.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
217
Managing Orders
Orders Overview
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning contains an automation engine which performs the order processing,
including service activation and business flow based on how Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning is
configured. The ordering process involves several workflow activities such as approval assignment, shipping
and receiving (See Figure 6: Processing an Order, on page 218 for details. These individual workflow activities
can be enabled or disabled, and assigned to different provisioning user roles per domain (see Table 51:
Authorization Roles Description, on page 201 for Ordering Roles). If any of the activities are enabled, the
order processing stops until the assigned provisioning user takes appropriate action. After the action is
acknowledged, the processing continues and any disabled activity is automatically acknowledged by Cisco
Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
Figure 6: Processing an Order
The length of time it takes to provision an order can vary. To verify if the order has successfully completed,
go to the user record of the user (choose User Provisioning). The services are listed in the User Record
Options pane. The View Orders section shows the services with the status as Complete. Also, you can perform
an order search for the order number.
Note
After the system has been idle for a long period of time, the first order placed may take longer than usual.
While placing orders, remember the following:
• While ordering services on a Message Processor ( Cisco Unity Connection, and Cisco Unity Express),
not all the services are available. This is because the processors do not support all services. Supported
Cisco Unity Services, on page 219 lists the orderable and nonorderable voice services for Cisco Unity
processors.
• While ordering services on either Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express or Cisco Unity
Express, be careful when entering Cisco IOS CLI commands (when configuring provisioning attributes
through the Advanced Order Configuration pane). Your authorization role does not restrict what you
can configure.
• Some attributes may not be supported by a particular endpoint type on a given protocol, so when placing
endpoint orders, you should only set values for attributes that are supported by the chosen endpoint type
and protocol. Else, you cannot provision services successfully.
• Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning synchronizes unsupported infrastructure objects like Intercom
Calling Search Space and Intercom Route Partition from Cisco Unified Communications Manager. If
these unsupported objects are used in provisioning services, it will result in error.
• If the Enable Voice Gateway feature property is set to N, the Order Entry screen will display analog
endpoints. If the property is set to Y, then the analog endpoints are not shown in the screen.

Ordering Service for a User
Creating orders for all services follow the same basic procedure.
A user might not have access to all services. Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning implements a form of
policy enforcement to allow users to get endpoints and services appropriate for the role assigned. The list of
services that appear at order time depends on the following:
• User role assigned to the user, and the Domains and Service Areas available to the user.
• Availability of resources to support delivery within the Service Areas (for example, a Cisco Unity
Connection system must be available to provide Unified Messaging).
• Provisioning system configuration.
Service dependencies:
• Line requires an existing endpoint.
• Voicemail and Email require an existing Line.
• Extension Mobility Line requires Extension Mobility Access.

All available services which you can provision are displayed, see Table 58: Provisioning Services, on page
221.
Select the service that you want to provision and click Continue.
Note
If endpoints are not displayed in the list for a user, you must associate the user role of a specific user
to endpoints. If you are trying to add an endpoint and endpoints are not shown, it is because the user
role does not allow endpoints or endpoints cannot be provisioned for the user within this service area.
In the Service Provisioning page, follow the Order Entry wizard, entering the required information for the
service. (For details of required fields, see Table 59: Order Entry Fields, on page 227.)
When placing orders, note the following:
• The <Service Type> Information and Advanced Order Configuration panes provide specifications for
the selected service.
• Users with Advanced Order or Administrator authorization role can access the Advanced Order
Configuration pane. However, an order can be completed or an endpoint can be provisioned without
using Advanced Order configuration.
Note
To clear the value of a provisioning attribute that has a numeric value in the Cisco Unified
Communications Manager, you must enter zero as the value. If you do not specify any value
and leave the field blank, you cannot clear the value of the provisioning attribute.
• When selecting the service template, Base Line Information attributes with keywords are replaced with
the user information automatically. You can also enter keywords while in the process of ordering a
service.

ID and Last Name, MAC address and Directory Number.
• For User ID and Last Name search, alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9), hyphens (-), underscores
(_), dots (.), at signs (@), space and apostrophe are allowed (for example, AASJKUser006, AAS*, AA*,
*SJKUser006, 3242#@!#########&@!*@(3), AANewRDUser00*)
• For MAC Address search, alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9), dash (-), period (.), and underscore
(_) are allowed (for example, 0024C444C3C6, 0024*, *24)
• For Directory Number search, alphanumeric characters, period, and underscore are not allowed. Special
characters such as +, ?, (), and - are allowed in the directory number (for example, \+0000057, \+0000*,
\+*, *0000*, *57)

For Call Processors, the display for a line cannot exceed 30 characters. Ensure
that the combination of characters for First Name and Last Name does not
exceed 30 characters. If this limit is exceeded, when you place an order, the
Call Processor sends an error. Using service templates, you can create keyword
based automatic settings, with automatic truncation, that will prevent the
character count from exceeding 30 characters.
End User Association is automatically provisioned for Line services.
Line on a Shared Endpoint
Order a line on a shared endpoint when users require their own separate lines
on the same physical endpoint. When this service is provisioned, the endpoint
and all lines on it are displayed in each of the user record.
The Shared icon appears next to the endpoint that is shared in the user record.

Managing Orders
Ordering Service for a User
Endpoint
Order an endpoint that does not have a line or a directory number associated
with it. Must not be associated with a line or a directory number.
For SIP phones, select Yes to enable Extension Mobility for the following
Unified IP Phones only: 7911, 7941, 7942, 7945, 7961, 7962, 7965, 7970,
7971, 7975. Extension Mobility is not supported for any other SIP phones.
Guidelines for endpoint names:
• Unified Personal Communicator:
◦Must match the username. (UPC is automatically added to the
endpoint name after the order is provisioned.)
◦Must contain uppercase letters (A-Z) or numbers (0-9). Other
characters are ignored.
◦May contain 12 additional characters after UPC.
For example, if the username is john_jackson, enter
JOHNJACKSON.

◦Must contain the prefix TCT. (If you do not enter it, Cisco Prime
Collaboration Provisioning automatically adds it.)
◦Must contain no more than 15 characters, including the prefix.
◦Must consist only of alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9). Cisco
Prime Collaboration Provisioning converts lowercase letters to
uppercase before pushing the information to the endpoint.
• CTI port-Must contain 1 to 15 characters: alphanumeric (A-Z, a-z, 0-9),
underscore (_), hyphen (-), or period (.)
• IP Communicator-Must contain 1 to 15 characters: alphanumeric (A-Z,
a-z, 0-9), underscore (_), hyphen (-), or period (.).

Endpoint Service
Adds a new endpoint and a line.
While ordering Endpoint service, the maximum number of lines is dependent
on the phone button template for the phone type (if a phone button template
is available). For Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, because
no phone button templates are available, the maximum number of lines is
defined in the product catalog for each endpoint type.
When placing endpoint service orders for Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Express, note the following: Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning
always provisions the ephone-dn with a dual-line.
• Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning always provisions the ephone-dn
with a dual-line
• During user synchronization, Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning
synchronizes all the ephone-dns with single-line, dual-line, and octo-line.
• The endpoint should not have orphan ephone-dns (those that are not
used by, or associated to, an ephone).
Endpoint attributes are displayed based on the supported features for
the selected endpoint type.

Copy endpoint
Opens a search page that lists all the endpoints in the system that are supported

To copy settings, in the search page, select an endpoint and click OK to confirm
that you want the endpoint's settings copied to the new endpoint.
This feature is available only to users with the Advanced Ordering role.
When you have Global access, you can copy all the endpoints that are orderable
for the user, including managed and unmanaged endpoints, as long as the endpoint
belongs to the same Call Processor.
When you have Domain access, you can only copy managed endpoints that are
orderable for the user and are in the user's manageable Domains, as long as the
endpoint belongs to the same Call Processor.
Because some settings are unique to each endpoint, not all settings are copied to
the new endpoint. The following settings are not copied to the new endpoint:
• Directory Number
• MAC Address
• Endpoint Description
When an endpoint is copied, services are not copied to the new endpoint. For
example, if lines, voicemails or e-mails exist on the endpoint, they will not be
copied to the new endpoint. In addition to this, the set only attributes associated
with the endpoint are not copied.
Through Copy endpoint you can only copy the provisioning attributes that are
set while creating an order.
If the Cisco Unified Communications Manager version for the copied endpoint
does not support an attribute, or if the copied endpoint type does not support an
attribute, the attribute is cleared on the new endpoint.
You are allowed to copy only an analog phone to another analog phone. Copying
an IP phone to analog phone is not allowed.
When an endpoint is copied, the provisioning attributes that are set during the
add order are only copied.
Once the Order is completed, in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the
Overriding Common settings check box is enabled. It means that the default
attributes of the new endpoint have been modified.

Line to End-user Association for Call Processors
Line to end-user association is automatically created in the Call Processors when ordering any of the following
Line services for Provisioning:
• Line
• Line on a Shared Endpoint
• Extension Mobility Line
• Remote Destination Profile Line
Association will be created based on the following rules:
• For Add order of any Line service, end-user association is automatically provisioned in the Call Processor
for all the Line services.
• For Change order on any Line service, association is created as follows:
• If user association does not exist, association is provisioned between ordering User ID and Line
services.
• If user association exists and if ordering User ID is already associated, association is preserved.
• If user association exists and if it is not ordering User ID, a new association is provisioned for the
ordering user along with already existing users.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
233
Managing Orders
Ordering Shared Endpoints and Lines
• For Cancel orders of any Line services, as the service itself is deprovisioned, end-user associations are
also removed from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
• While you modify or replace endpoint orders, you should provide supported values based on the endpoint
type. If valid values are not provided, the order will move to an unrecoverable state. For example, Iphone
and Nokia has specific set of supported values.
• For Replace orders of endpoint, user association is preserved from the old endpoint.
• For Change Owner cases (applicable only for IP Phone):
• Users associated with lines of previous owner should be replaced with new owner association.
• When changing owner of a endpoint from a registered user to a pseudo user, association is
de-provisioned.
• When changing owner from a pseudo user to a normal user, association is added.
If a line is not provisioned through Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning, the user association for the line
may not get created in Cisco Unified Communications Manager after it is synchronized to Provisioning.
If this occurs you should run the Line to End-user Association utility. If you do not run the utility, the presence
status for any lines other than the primary extensions will not be reported and the Single Number Reach
Service will not work correctly.
For information on running the Line to End-user Association utility, see http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/
ps12363/prod_installation_guides_list.html.
During user synchronization, Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning synchronizes all user associations of
Line objects from the Call Processor.
• Only Cisco Unified Communications Managers versions greater than 6.0.x are provisioned with this
association.
• This association is not applicable for pseudo users .
Note
You cannot unset a particular user from a list of associated users. To work around this limitation, remove
the user association manually from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager and synchronize Cisco
Unified Communications Manager with Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
Ordering Shared Endpoints and Lines
You can configure both shared endpoints and lines within Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning. The
following scenarios are possible:
• Common shared line—Multiple users share the same line from different endpoints.
• Primary shared line—Multiple users share the same line from different endpoints, but one user’s line
display is used for all users (for example, a help desk). Users can also have their own lines separate from
the shared line.
• Shared endpoint—Multiple users share the same endpoint, but have separate lines from that endpoint.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x

Managing Orders
Setting Up a Common Shared Line
When ordering shared lines and endpoints, remember the following:
• If the second user orders a line on a shared endpoint that already has a line with voicemail, email, and
unified messaging, he will not see these products for the first line in his user record. This also occurs
when a shared line is ordered.
• If the second user deletes a shared endpoint, it is still displayed in the user record for the first user, and
it is still present in Cisco Unified Communications Manager. But if the second user deletes any lines on
the shared endpoint, those lines are deleted from the user record for the first user and from Cisco Unified
Communications Manager.
• If the second user deletes a shared line, it is deleted from the second user's endpoint on Cisco Unified
Communications Manager. But it is still displayed in the user record for the first user, and is still present
in the first user's endpoint on Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
• The first user should not order a new voicemail for the second user's line (which displays a voicemail
in its own user record). This second voicemail will fail on Cisco Unity because a voicemail already
exists with the same directory number.
• Any changes made to the directory number provisioning attributes that are set on a shared line are also
applied to all the lines that share the same directory number. The directory number attributes for the
existing line are applied to the new shared line.
• By default, the DN block assignment algorithm will not take into account the Partition and will try to
assign unique DN patterns from the block. To avoid assigning an existing DN that is in a different
partition, add the following property:
dfc.ipt.servicearea.dnblock.uniquedn: Y
• If the first user deletes a shared line or a endpoint, the associates of the shared line or a endpoint will
move to the second user.
Setting Up a Common Shared Line
You can configure a scenario where multiple users share the same directory number by using lines on their
own endpoints:
• Each user’s name is displayed on the shared line on their own endpoint.
• Caller ID displays the user’s name when they call other people.
• Each user’s own endpoint and the shared line are displayed in their own user record.

You can configure a scenario where multiple users share the same line from their own endpoints, but the
primary user’s line display takes precedence over the others:
• One primary user, and one or more secondary users, can all share the same line.
• The primary user’s line display appears on the shared line on all the user’s endpoints.
• When a secondary user makes calls using the shared line, the caller ID displays the primary user’s line
display.
• User records for secondary users display the shared line as well as their own individual lines.
• User records for the primary user display all three shared endpoints and all three lines as well as the
lines of the individual users.

Associating a User Profile to a User
You must assign a user profile to a user for enabling Self-Care for the user.
The User Services includes the user profile provisioning attribute. The User Services will list all the configured
user profiles. You can select the desired profile for the user at the time of ordering the service.
The user profile attribute is also available in the service template for User Services. If user profile is configured
at service area level, when the first order is placed for a user, the value will be retrieved from the service area
and associated to the user.
Note
The user profile attribute is supported for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 10.x and above.
If User Data Service (UDS) feature is enabled in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning, user will be
provisioned in all clusters, but the user profile will be assigned to the user only in the cluster where the first
order is placed.
Assigning user profile to a user automatically
You can configure the user profile attribute at service area level by using the Service Templates for automatically
associating the user profile to a user. At the time of user creation, the value of user profile will be rendered
from the corresponding service area and added in the Add User request.
Assigning user profile to a user manually
To assign a user profile to a user manually, you must configure the User Services. You must select the desired
user profile from the drop down list and place the order to associate the user profile to the user .
You can change the configured user profile by updating the User Services. If the user profile is configured

Managing Endpoints without an Associated User
Managing Endpoints without an Associated User
The Pseudo user role allows you to provision endpoints without an associated user in the Call Processor.
Provisioning an endpoint for a Pseudo user is the same as that for a regular user, except that a user is not
created in the Call Processor. You can order any services that include the following base services for a Pseudo
user:
• Endpoint (including all endpoint types)
• Line
• Voicemail
Changing a user’s role from Pseudo to a regular role or vice versa is allowed only if the user does not have
any services configured.
The following procedure describes how to associate the endpoints that do not have an associated user to a
pseudo or existing user.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Export all endpoints that do not have an associated user to a file (see Exporting Endpoints Without Associated
Users, on page 255).
Modify the exported file so that each endpoint can be associated to a new Pseudo user or desired existing
user.
Create a batch action file using the modified file, and then run the batch project (see Batch Provisioning, on
page 153).
Upon completion of the batch project, you must run a Domain synchronization to assign a Service Area to
the endpoint so that the endpoint will be displayed in the user record.
Note
If a Service Area was listed in the file, the endpoint will be assigned to that Service Area (if an exact
match is found) after a Domain synchronization is run.
Exporting Endpoints Without Associated Users
You can export endpoints without associated users and batch import the endpoints with real or pseudo
usernames.
Note
You can export hardware phones. You cannot export SoftPhones or Extension Mobility.

Search Endpoints Without Associated User.
Step 3
In the Endpoints Without Associated Users page, check the check box next to the endpoints that you want to
export, and then click Export Selected Endpoints.
Step 4
If you plan to use the exported file for batch import of endpoints, specify the domain and suffix for user IDs
in the Export Endpoints without Associated Users dialog box.
Click Export.
Step 5
Replacing Existing Endpoints
Through the Replace feature, you can replace an existing endpoint for a user, change the endpoint’s MAC
address, or update other endpoint settings.
Note
• The Replace feature does not allow you to change the line positions of assigned lines.
• The Replace feature does not support the change of the device protocol (SCCP/SIP). Cancel the
existing endpoint, and provision the new endpoint with the differing protocol selected.
You can pick the same endpoint type, or choose from a list of other available endpoint types for the user. The
endpoint types that users have access to are determined by their user role, and the number of lines on the
endpoint that you are replacing. Endpoints that do not support the required number of lines are not available
during the change order process.
When a endpoint is replaced, all of its lines are transferred to the new endpoint. The Service Area assigned
to the new endpoint is the same as for the original endpoint.
Users with the ordering authorization role can replace their own endpoints, or those of other users.
When you submit a replace endpoint order, remember the following:
• Any attributes that are not supported by Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning and exist on the endpoint
before placing a replace endpoint order will either be reset to their default values or dropped from the
endpoint. For a list of supported attributes in Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning, see Provisioning
Attribute Description.
• The lines assigned to the original endpoint are associated to the newly added endpoint. But the newly
selected associated endpoint button template must support the same number (or more) of assigned lines
as the original endpoint.
• Only services that are configured for the Domain will be kept after an endpoint replace order is performed.
If any other services existed on the endpoint, they will be dropped.

Managing Orders
Changing the Owner of an Endpoint
• Some attributes may not be supported by a particular endpoint type on a given protocol, so when placing
endpoint orders, you should only set values for attributes that are supported by the chosen endpoint type
and protocol. If you do not, orders may fail.
• While replacing endpoint orders, you should provide a supported value for the DND Option attribute
based on the endpoint type. Certain endpoint types like Nokia and iPhone accepts only one value whereas
other endpoints supports up to 3-4 values for this attribute. If you provide wrong values for DND Option
the order will not be replaced.
To replace endpoints for users, in the Services pane, hover over the endpoint that you want to replace,
and then click Replace in the Actions list.
To change the basic and advanced settings for an endpoint or service, click Change in the Actions list.
Note
You cannot change the voicemail alias for all Provisioning versions. For Cisco Unity
Connection, you can change the voicemail alias for all versions.
Changing the Owner of an Endpoint
You can change the ownership of an endpoint from one user to another user in the same Domain.
To change the owner of an endpoint, in the Services pane, hover over the endpoint that you that you want to
change, and then click Change Owner in the Actions list.
When you change ownership of an endpoint, all services associated to the endpoint (Line, Email, Voicemail,
and Unified Messaging) are also changed.
You can enter different values for the Email ID and Display Name, if applicable. If you do not change the
e-mail ID, e-mail display name, voicemail alias, or voicemail display name, the services on the Unified
Message Processor do not change. Only the user records in Provisioning for the old and new owners are
changed.
However, if any of these settings are changed, the voicemail and e-mail accounts on the Unified Message
Processor are deactivated and then reactivated.
The Service Area assigned to the new owner is the same as the Service Area assigned to the original owner.
Note
Users with the Ordering or Advanced Ordering role can make these changes, either to their own endpoints
or to those of other users.
Attributes that contain the user’s login ID (first name and last name) are updated with the new user’s information
(depending on the Domain rules and the user’s provisioning attributes).
The following attributes may contain the user’s login ID:
• Endpoint Description
• Alerting Name (online)
• Endpoint Owner User ID
• ASCII Display (Internal Caller ID)
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x

Changing Line Information
• ASCII Line Text Label
• Line Text Label ASCII Alerting Name
Note the following points when changing the owner of an endpoint:
If the line is moved, the new user’s and old user’s telephone number and primary extension are updated
accordingly.
If an endpoint is shared, you cannot change owners of the endpoint. The Change Owner button is not displayed.
If there are open orders against any of the associated services, a warning message appears, and you cannot
continue.
Changing Line Information
You can submit an order to change line details. The following line details can be changed:
• Directory number
• Line position
• Provisioning attributes
You can change details on Line, Line on Shared Endpoint, and Extension Mobility Line products.
There are two sets of Provisioning Attributes on line products. One set is on the directory number level and
the other is on the line level. When multiple lines share the same directory number, provisioning attributes
set on the directory number level are common and shared among the line. Changing the provisioning attributes
on one line impacts all of the lines.
Provisioning attributes set on the line level are not shared. Changing the provisioning attributes on one line
does not impact the other lines.
To update Line details, in the Services pane, hover over the line that you want to change, and then click Change
in the Actions list.
Unlocking Voicemail Accounts
If a voicemail account becomes locked (due to either user or system error), you can unlock the account through
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
You can unlock the following accounts:
• Voicemail account—For Cisco Unity Connection, and Cisco Unity Express devices.
• Web access account—For Cisco Unity Connection devices.
Before You Begin
To unlock voicemail accounts, you must configure the Cisco Unity Connection devices (see Managing Devices

Processing Orders
Processing Orders
After you have submitted orders for users, they are approved and then shipped. Depending on how your
Provisioning system has been configured, these steps may be automatic or may require processing by users.
There are four possible activities that can be assigned to users during the order processing stage. The activities
are assigned based on the rules set for the Domain.
• Approve orders—Approves orders before provisioning can occur, and can also reject orders. This user
must be assigned the Approval authorization role. This is controlled by the following rules:
• IsAuthorizationRequiredForAddOrder
• IsAuthorizationRequiredForChangeOrder
• IsAuthorizationRequiredForCancelOrder
• Assignment—Assigns MAC address to an endpoint. This user must be assigned the Assignment role.
This is controlled by the rule PhoneAssignmentDoneBy.
• Shipping—Ships the order. This user must be assigned the Shipping authorization role. This is controlled
by the rule PhoneShippingDoneBy.
• Receiving—Done by the user who has the Receiver user role. Indicates that an ordered endpoint has
been received. This is controlled by the rule PhoneReceiptDoneBy.
Note
A Provisioning administrator can configure how these activities are assigned.

Work Order States
This section explains the states an order goes through after it is entered.
Following are the work order states:
• Initial
• Released
• Completed
• Hold
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
263
Managing Orders
E-mail Notifications
When an order is placed, a work order is created and is in the Initial state. When execution of the workflow
begins, the order transitions to the Released state. After completion of the workflow, the order transitions to
the Complete state if all steps were successful, or to the Hold state if any of the steps failed. For the order to
change to the Hold state, you may need to acknowledge that the order failed, or the change may occur
automatically, depending on the origin of the work order.
Work orders also have an extended status field.
• If the order is in execution, the extended status is Being Provisioned.
• If the order failed, the extended status is Recoverable Error or Unrecoverable Error.
If valid values are not provided while creating order, the order fails with the extended status unrecoverable
error. The orders in unrecoverable error state cannot be provisioned, hence it must be stopped and a new
order can be raised with valid values.
If the device is unreachable, the order fails with extended status recoverable error. The orders in
recoverable error state can be approved and provisioned.
• If the order is waiting for a user action, the extended status is set to a specific Wait status. Wait states
are usually for assignment, often for shipping or receiving.
Changes in the extended status can occur without the work order changing state.
When a work order fails, the transition behavior from Released to Hold depends on which of the following
was used to submit the work order:
• Provisioning NBI transitions from Released to Hold.
• Provisioning user interface remains in the Released state, waiting for you to take action on the order.
• Batch provisioning depends on the extended status. If the failure is a recoverable error, the order remains
in the Released state, waiting for you to take action on it. If the failure is an unrecoverable error, the
order transitions to Hold.
E-mail Notifications
E-mail Notifications improve manageability of notifications by allowing you to view critical events such as:
• Order approvals
• Order failures
• Synchronization failures
Notifications can be set at two levels:
• Domain Settings—For workflow events such as order approvals, assignment, shipping, and receiving
in the Domain.
• System Settings—For system events such as order failures and synchronization failures.
Note
Only users with global admin and domain admin roles can configure the notification settings.

Configuring a Domain Notification Template
Notification settings for Domain-specific events such as Order Approvals, Handle Assignment, Handle
Shipping, and Handle Receiving can be set at the Domain level. A Domain notification template can be used
to set up values that will be applied to any new Domains created in the system. Additionally, you can also
choose to apply the values from the template to all the existing Domains in the system.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Choose Administration > Domain Notification Settings.
In the Domain Notification Settings page, modify the Domain template, if required.
In the Email Settings pane, SMTP server details and the From Address values are inherited from the system
settings and are displayed in read-only format. These settings cannot be changed in the Domain template;
however, for specific Domains, these settings can be overridden.
Step 3
Step 4
Step 5
Set the time slot for the Aggregation and Escalation window to appear.
Click Test Settings to ensure that SMTP host and other details are set up correctly.
In the Notification Events pane, select events for which you have to send notifications.
Note
The Workflow Pending Activity field contains events such as Order Approvals, Handle Assignment,
Handle Shipping, Handle Receiving, and so on.
In the Approval Notification Group, Assignment Notification Group, Shipping Notification Group, and
Receiving Notification Group panes, do the following:
Step 6
• External email addresses—Enter the e-mail addresses to which to send notifications.
• Aggregation window—Choose a setting to determine whether notifications of Domain events are
aggregated or sent out as soon as an event occurs. The value <Not Set> results in no aggregation, and
notifications are sent out immediately upon occurrence of an event.
Any other value makes the system wait after an event to occur, for the time set in the aggregation window.
During this time, if other related events occur, an aggregated notification with details of all such events
is sent in a single e-mail.
Note
Events are based on workflow event type. Approval notifications and assignment notifications
are aggregated in separate e-mails.
• Escalation Window—Choose a setting to determine whether inaction on workflow events results in an
escalation e-mail to the system administrators. The value <Not set> means no escalation e-mails will
be sent out.
Any other value triggers the system to send out an e-mail to the system administrators after the time
specified if no action was taken for the triggering event (for example, order approvals).

Enabling Data Purging for Provisioning
You can configure Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning to purge data at a scheduled interval.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning retains the following types of data:
• Order—When an order is placed for any product provisioning (for example: endpoint, line, voicemail
or any bundle), an order data object is created and stored in the system.
• ServiceAction—Objects that are created when the application is communicating with the device during
product provisioning. By default, purging of Service Action data is enabled.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning Guide - Standard and Advanced, 11.x
280
Maintaining the Server
Enabling Data Purging for Provisioning
• Task—Scheduling of infrastructure configuration updates. Through Infrastructure Configuration you
can save configurations locally. The saved configurations can then be bundled in a Task and pushed to
the device.
• Workflow—After an order is placed for a product, it goes through a workflow (approval, shipping, and
receiving) before going to the service activator.
• Audit Trail—For every PIN or Password change, PIN or Password reset, PIN or Password change on
next login, unlock voice mail of a user in a Unity or Unity Connection device, an audit entry is created.
Note
Data is purged when the retention time or retention count criterion is met. For example,
if the data is older than the retention time it will be removed. Also, if the data amount
exceeds the retention count, it will be removed.
Procedure
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Choose Administration > Data Maintenance . (See Table 1 for navigation in the Prime Collaboration
Provisioning application.)
Check the check box in the row for the data you want to schedule for purging.

(default is seven days except for ServiceAction, which is 30 days).
In the Retention Count column, select the amount of data that you want to retain.
Note
Retention count is the number of objects that you want Provisioning to keep and not purge. For
example, if there are 1000 total orders and the retention count is 200, Provisioning will purge 800
orders and keep the last 200 orders.
The default settings for the Retention Count are:
• Orders—latest 100 orders
• ServiceAction—Unlimited
• Task—50
• Workflow—50
• Audit Trail—50
Step 5
Step 6
(Optional) To export the purged data to a file before it is removed, in the Export Before Purge field select
Yes, then enter a directory location at which to store the data.
Only Orders and Workflow data is exported. Service action data cannot be exported.
Select a purge interval (the default is 24 hours), and click Update.
The Purging Information pane displays the time of the next scheduled purge and the last purge.
To purge Provisioning data, choose Administration > Data Maintenance (In the Prime Collaboration

When backing up files, you should place the files on a different file server. Also, you
should burn the backup data onto a CD.
Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning allows you to back up system data and restore it on a different system
in the event of total system failure. To restore the backup from another system, the following prerequisites
must be met:
• Ensure that the application server to which data is restored has the same MAC address as that of the
system that was backed up (the IP address and the hostname can be different).
• If you are unable to assign the MAC address of the original system (the one that was backed up) to
another system, contact Cisco TAC for information on a new license file (for a new MAC address).
• The procedure to backup and restore data on a different system is the same as the procedure to backup
and restore data on the same system.

service parameter, which supports the Cisco CallManager service.
Services Provisioning
From the drop-down list, choose how the phone will support the services:
• Internal—The phone uses the phone configuration file to support the
service. Choose this option or Both for Cisco-provided default services
where the Service URL has not been updated; that is, the service URL
indicates Application:Cisco/<name of service>; for example,
Application:Cisco/CorporateDirectory. Choose Internal or Both for
Cisco-signed Java MIDlets because Cisco-signed Java MIDlets are
provisioned in the configuration file.
• External URL—Choosing External URL indicates that the phone ignores
the services in the phone configuration file and retrieves the services
from a Service URL. If you configured a custom Service URL for a
service, you must choose either External URL or Both; if you choose
Internal in this case, the services that are associated with the custom
URLs do not work on the phone.
• Both—Choosing Both indicates that the phone support both the services
that are defined in the configuration file and external applications that
are retrieved from custom service URLs. If you have phones in your
network that can obtain the service information from the phone
configuration file and phones in your network that can only use custom
service URLs for obtaining the information, choose Both.

Field
Description
Hide Video By Default
This field provides an additional flexibility of hiding video window by default
if "Hide Video By Default" is enabled.
This is a required field.
Default: Disabled
With "Hide Video by default" feature enabled, the video window is initially
hidden on video calls. If "Auto Transmit Video" is "on," the phone will
display a "Hide Video View", while the video is being transmitted to the
remote party. This may make distinguishing video calls from voice calls more
difficult for end users. The benefit of "Hide Video by default" is that, in work
environments where users are more likely to mute their video or close the
shutters on the camera, the far end user will see the audio call plane rather
than a black "mute" box on their phone. "Hide Video by Default" is not
recommended for work environments where video calling is used often with
cameras open, enabled and unmuted.
VXC VPN Option
This field indicates how VXC VPN is supported. If "Dual Tunnel" is selected,
phone establishes two VPN tunnels, one for Phone and another for VXC
device. If "Single Tunnel" is selected, phone establishes only one VPN tunnel
for phone and VXC-device to share. Where uncompromised voice or video
quality is required the dual VPN tunnel solution is recommended.
Dual Tunnel—Through the use of two VPN tunnels the host Cisco IP Phone
is able to provide prioritization of its CPU and memory resources to the data
associated with the Phones Voice or video functions over that of the data
associated with the VXC VPN tunnel. This approach will require two manual
login entries (dependent on security parameters), one for Phone's Voice or
Video VPN and another for VXC VPN. The two tunnel approach also requires
two VPN concentrator ports and two IP addresses adding potential costs.
Single Tunnel—A single VPN tunnel option is implemented for those
customers willing to trade off potential voice/video quality for a simplified
operating model. The solution consists of operating over a single VPN tunnel
by sharing the available 89/99xx processor and memory resources across the
voice, video and VDI services. The IP Phone will be unable to prioritize data
handing of one service over another.
This is a required field.
Default: Dual Tunnel

VXC VPN Option, VXC VPN Sign In window will pop up for user to input
credentials and re-establish VXC VPN tunnel.
If "No Challenge" is selected, VXC challenge will be bypassed. For "Single
Tunnel" VXC VPN Option, VXC traffic will silently be permitted to go over
phone VPN without VXC challenge. For "Dual Tunnel" VXC VPN Option,
credentials of Phone VPN tunnel will be reused to re-establish VXC VPN
tunnel.

blockedbecause of insufficient bandwidth.
An AAR group setting of None specifies that no rerouting of
blocked calls will be attempted.
Call Classification
Determines whether an incoming call that is using this trunk
is considered off the network (OffNet) or on the network
(OnNet), or should use the system default setting.
Common Device Config
Choose the common device configuration for which you want
this trunk assigned.
The common device configuration includes the attributes
(services or features) that are associated with a particular user.
Common device configurations are configured in the Common
Device Configuration page.
Connected Party Transformation CSS
Choose to transform the connected party number on the device
in order to display the connected number in another format,

Field
Description
Location
Specifies the total bandwidth that is available for calls between
this location and the central location (or hub). A location setting
of Hub_None specifies unlimited available bandwidth.
Media Resource Group List
Provides a prioritized grouping of media resource groups. An
application chooses the required media resource, such as a
Music On Hold server, from the available media resources
according to the priority order that is defined in a Media
Resource Group List.
Media Termination Point Required
Used to indicate whether a media termination point (MTP) is
used to implement features that H.323 does not support (such
as hold and transfer).
Check the Media Termination Point Required check box if you
want to use a media termination point to implement features.
Deselect the Media Termination Point Required check box if
you do not want to use a media termination point to implement
features.
Check this check box only for H.323 clients and those H.323
devices that do not support the H.245 Empty Capabilities Set,
or if you want media streaming to terminate through a single
source.
If you check this check box to require an MTP, and either
device is a video endpoint, the call operates as audio only.
Retry Video Call as Audio
Applies to video endpoints that receive calls. For trunks, it
pertains to calls that are received from Cisco Unified
Communications Manager but not to calls that are received
from the wide area network (WAN).
By default, the system checks this check box to specify that
this device should immediately retry a video call as an audio
call (if it cannot connect as a video call) prior to sending the
call to call control for rerouting.
If you uncheck this check box, a video call that fails to connect
as video will not try to establish an audio call. The call then
fails to call control, and call control routes the call via
Automatic Alternate Routing (AAR) and (or) route or hunt list.
Unattended Port
If selected, calls can be redirected, transferred, or forwarded
to an unattended port, such as a voice mail port.
The default value is deselected.

Field
Description
SRTP Allowed
Select if you want Cisco Unified Communications Manager to
allow secure and nonsecure calls over the trunk.
If you do not check this check box, Cisco Unified
Communications Manager prevents SRTP negotiation with the
trunk and uses RTP.
If you check this check box, it is recommended that you
configure IPSec, so you do not expose keys and other
security-related information during call negotiations.
If you do not configure IPSec correctly, you must consider
signaling between Cisco Unified Communications Manager
and the gateway as nonsecure.
Use Trusted Relay Point
From the list, enable or disable whether Cisco Unified
Communications Manager inserts a Trusted Relay Point (TRP)
device with this media endpoint. Choose one of the following
values:
• Default—The device uses the Use Trusted Relay Point
setting from the common device configuration with which
this device associates.
• Off—Disables the use of a TRP with this device. This
setting overrides the Use Trusted Relay Point setting in
the common device configuration with which this device
associates.
• On—Enables the use of a TRP with this device. This
setting overrides the Use Trusted Relay Point setting in
the common device configuration with which this device
associates.
A TRP device designates an MTP or transcoder device that is
labeled as a TRP.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager places the TRP closest
to the associated endpoint device if more than one resource is
needed for the endpoint (for example, a transcoder or
RSVPAgent).
If both TRP and MTP are required for the endpoint, TRP is
used as the required MTP.
If both TRP and RSVPAgent are needed for the endpoint, Cisco
Unified Communications Manager first tries to find an
RSVPAgent that can also be used as a TRP.
If both TRP and transcoder are needed for the endpoint, Cisco
Unified Communications Manager first tries to find a transcoder
that is also designated as a TRP.

header in outgoing SIP messages from Cisco Unified
Communications Manager to the remote destination. If you
select Yes, the SIP Trunk always sends the RPID header.
Asserted-Identity
Allows the SIP Trunk to send the Asserted-Type and SIP
Privacy headers in SIP messages.
If you select Yes, the SIP Trunk always sends the
Asserted-Type header. Whether the SIP Trunk sends the SIP
Privacy header depends on the SIP Privacy configuration.
If you select No, the SIP Trunk does not include any
Asserted-Type or SIP Privacy headers in its SIP messages.
For more information, see the descriptions of Asserted-Type
and SIP Privacy in this table.
Asserted-Type
Specifies the type of Asserted Identity header that SIP Trunk
messages should include.
Select one of the following values:
• Default—Represents the default value. Screening
indication information that the SIP Trunk receives from
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Call Control
determines the type of header the SIP Trunk sends.
• PAI—The Privacy-Asserted Identity (PAI) header is sent
in outgoing SIP Trunk messages. This value overrides
the screening indication value that comes from Cisco
Unified Communications Manager.
• PPI—The Privacy Preferred Identity (PPI) header is sent
in outgoing SIP Trunk messages. This value overrides
the screening indication value that comes from Cisco

presentation values that the SIP Trunk receives from the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Call Control
compose the SIP Privacy header.
For example:
◦If the name and number presentation is restricted,
the SIP Trunk sends the SIP Privacy header.
◦If the name and number presentation is allowed, the
SIP Trunk does not send the Privacy header.
• None—The SIP Trunk includes the header Privacy:none,
which means that presentation is allowed. This value
overrides the Presentation information that comes from
Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
• ID—The SIP Trunk includes the header Privacy:id, which
means that the presentation is restricted for both name
and number.
This value overrides the presentation information that
comes from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
• ID Critical—The SIP Trunk includes the header
Privacy:id;critical, which means that presentation is
restricted for both name and number.
The critical label means that privacy services that are
requested for this message are critical, and if the network
cannot provide these privacy services, this request should
be rejected.
This value overrides the presentation information that
comes from Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Note

Select the security profile to apply to the SIP Trunk.
You must apply a security profile to all SIP trunks that are
configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Administration.
Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides
a predefined, nonsecure SIP Trunk security profile for
autoregistration.
To enable security features for a SIP Trunk, configure a new
security profile and apply it to the SIP Trunk. If the trunk does
not support security, choose a nonsecure profile.
To identify the settings that the profile contains, on Cisco
Unified Communications Manager choose System > Security
Profile > SIP Trunk Security Profile.
For information on how to configure security profiles, see Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.
Rerouting Calling Search Space
Determines where a SIP user (A) can refer another user (B) to
a third party (C). After the referral is completed, B and C
connect. In this case, the rerouting calling search space that is
used is that of the initial SIP user (A).
Out-Of-Dialog Refer Calling Search Space Used when a Cisco Unified Communications Manager refers
a call (B) coming in to a SIP user (A) to a third party (C) when
there is no involvement of a SIP user (A). In this case, the
system uses the out-of-dialog calling search space of the SIP
user (A).

Field
Description
Packet Capture Mode
Exists only for troubleshooting encryption. Packet capturing
may cause high CPU usage or call-processing interruptions.
Select one of the following options:
• None—This option, which is the default setting, indicates
that no packet capturing is occurring. After you complete
packet capturing, configure this setting.
• Batch Processing Mode—Cisco Unified Communications
Manager writes the decrypted or non encrypted messages
to a file, and the system encrypts each file.
On a daily basis, the system creates a new file with a new
encryption key. Cisco Unified Communications Manager,
which stores the file for seven days, also stores the keys
that encrypt the file in a secure location. Cisco Unified
Communications Manager stores the file in the PktCap
virtual directory.
A single file contains the time stamp, source IP address,
source IP port, destination IP address, packet protocol,
message length, and message.
The IREC tool uses HTTPS, administrator username and
password, and the specified day to request a single
encrypted file that contains the captured packets.
Likewise, the tool requests the key information to decrypt
the encrypted file.
You do not have to reset the trunk after enabling or disabling
Packet Capture.
Packet Capture Duration
Exists only for troubleshooting encryption. Packet capturing
may cause high CPU usage or call-processing interruptions.
This field specifies the maximum number of minutes allotted
for one session of packet capturing. The default setting is 0,
and the range is from 0 to 300 minutes.
To initiate packet capturing, enter a value other than 0 in the
field. After packet capturing completes, the value “0” is
displayed.

PSTN. Check this check box even if all calls through this trunk
device do not reach the PSTN.
For example, check this check box for tandem trunks or an
H.323 gatekeeper-routed trunk if calls might go to the PSTN.
When checked, this check box causes the system to create
upload voice call records (VCRs) to validate calls made through
this trunk device.
By default, this check box remains checked.
Route Class Signaling Enabled
From the drop-down list, enable or disable route class signaling
for the port.
Select one of the following values:
• Default—If you choose this value, the device uses the
setting from the Route Class Signaling service parameter.
• Off—Choose this value to enable route class signaling.
This setting overrides the Route Class Signaling service
parameter.
• On—Choose this value to disable route class signaling.

Enables you to use the Connected Party Transformation CSS
that is configured in the device pool that is assigned to this
device.
If you do not check this check box, the device uses the
Connected Party Transformation CSS that you configured for
this device in the Trunk Configuration window.
DTMF Signaling Method
Select one of the following options:
• No Preference (default)—Cisco Unified Communications
Manager will pick the DTMF method to negotiate DTMF,
so an MTP is not required for the call.
If Cisco Unified Communications Manager does not have
a choice but to allocate an MTP (if the Media Termination
Point Required check box is checked), SIP Trunk will
negotiate DTMF to RFC 2833.
• RFC 2833—Select this configuration if the preferred
DTMF method to be used across the trunk is RFC 2833.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager makes every
effort to negotiate RFC 2833 regardless of MTP usage.
Out-of-band provides the fallback method if the peer
endpoint supports it.
• OOB and RFC 2833—Select this configuration if both
out-of-band and RFC 2833 should be used for DTMF.
If the peer endpoint supports both out-of-band and RFC
2833, Cisco Unified Communications Manager will
negotiate both out-of-band and RFC 2833 DTMF
methods.
As a result, two DTMF events are sent for the same
DTMF keypress (one out-of-band and the other RFC
2833).

Field
Description
Dial String Interpretation
Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the Dial String Interpretation
policy to determine if the SIP identity header is a directory number or
directory URI.
Because directory numbers and directory URIs are saved in different
database lookup tables, Cisco Unified Communications Manager examines
the characters in the SIP identity header's user portion, which is the portion
of the SIP address that is before the @ sign (for example, [email protected] address
or [email protected]).
To configure the Dial String Interpretation, choose one of the following
options from the drop-down list box:
• Always treat all dial strings as URI addresses—Cisco Unified
Communications Manager treats the address of incoming calls as if
they were URI addresses.
• Phone number consists of characters 0–9, A–D, *, and + (others treated
as URI addresses)—Cisco Unified Communications Manager treats
the incoming call as a directory number if all the characters in the
user portion of the SIP identity header fall within this range. If the
user portion of the address uses any characters that do not fall within
this range, the address is treated as a URI.
• Phone number consists of characters 0-9, *, and + (others treated as
URI addresses)—Cisco Unified Communications Manager treats the
incoming call as a directory number if all the characters in the user
portion of the SIP identity header fall within this range. If the user
portion of the address uses any characters that do not fall within this
range, the address is treated as a URI.
Note
Redirect by Application
If the user=phone tag is present in the Request URI, Cisco
Unified Communications Manager always treats the dial
string as a number regardless of what option you choose for
the Dial String Interpretation field.
Check this check box to configure this SIP Profile on the SIP trunk, which
allows the Cisco Unified Communications Manager administrator to:
• Apply a specific calling search space to redirected contacts that are
received in the 3xx response.
• Apply digit analysis to the redirected contacts to make sure that the
call is routed correctly.
• Prevent DOS attack by limiting the number of redirections (recursive
redirections) that a service parameter can set.
• Allow other features to be invoked while the redirection is taking
place.

Prebuilt IOS Templates
• Prebuilt IOS Templates, page 377
Prebuilt IOS Templates
Prebuilt Cisco IOS Templates are distributed by Cisco for many applications and are supported by multiple
administration products within Cisco.
A prebuilt Cisco IOS Template is defined by two files:
• Name-swconfig.txt—This file contains the Cisco IOS commands. It is different from the Commands
attribute for generic Cisco IOS commands in one aspect: the keywords are delimited with the “at” symbol
(@).
• Config-UserGuide-Name.txt—This file lists all the keywords that are used in the swconfig.txt file. The
keywords must include the leading @ character. If the first character of a line is not the @ character, it
is treated as a comment.
If you are using C2851_GigE-ASSTwOSPF-DMVPN-CME-H323-FaxRelay in <Name>, the following would
be the text files:
• C2851_GigE-ASSTwOSPF-DMVPN-CME-H323-FaxRelay-swconfig.txt
• Config-UserGuide-C2851_GigE-ASSTwOSPF-DMVPN-CME-H323-FaxRelay.txt
If one file is missing or the naming convention is not followed, the name will not appear in the list of prebuilt
template filenames in Prime Collaboration Provisioning.
If an error is detected in the text files, an error message is displayed. If you get an error message, you must
cancel the creation of the template item and correct the problem. One of the most common errors is that a
keyword used in the swconfig.txt file is not cross-referenced in the Config-UserGuide-Name.txt file.
Noncomment lines in the Config-UserGuide-<Name>.txt file are comment delimited and have three required
columns. They are:
• Keyword Name—The full name of the keyword, including the leading @ character. Valid characters
for a keyword name are alphanumeric characters, underscore, left bracket ([), and right bracket (]).
• Keyword Description—A free-text field that provides a description of what the keyword value represents
in the Cisco IOS commands.

Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Access your Provisioning system and go to the subdirectory ${CUPM-INSTALLED}\sep\ipt\ios-pre-built.
Copy the downloaded files into your Provisioning platform’s subdirectory. There you will find a directory
called Sample.
Create a new directory and give a descriptive name for the type of generic Cisco IOS prebuilt templates.
Copy the Name-swconfig.txt and Config-UserGuide-Name.txt for your prebuilt template into one of the
subdirectories you have created under ios-pre-built.
