Cisco IP Phone Services
Configuration
Using Cisco CallManager Administration, you define and maintain the list of
Cisco IP Phone Services to which users can subscribe at their site. Cisco IP Phone
Services comprise XML applications that enable the display of interactive content
with text and graphics on Cisco IP Phones 7970, 7960, 7940, 7912, and 7905.
Note
Cisco IP Phones 7912 and 7905 only support text-based XML applications.
Cisco CallManager provides sample Cisco IP Phone Services applications. You
can also create customized Cisco IP Phone applications for your site.
After you configure the list of services, you can add services to the phones in the
database and assign them to phone buttons. In Cisco CallManager
Administration, you can view and modify settings for phones and device profiles.
Users can log on to the Cisco IP Phone User Options application and subscribe to
these services for their Cisco IP Phones.

Because you might have several Cisco IP Phone Services in your network,
Cisco CallManager lets you locate specific Cisco IP Phone Services on the basis
of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate Cisco IP Phone
Services.
Note
During your work in a browser session, Cisco CallManager Administration

When you delete a Cisco IP Phone Service, Cisco CallManager removes all
service information, user subscriptions, and user subscription data from the
database. To find out which devices are using the Cisco IP Phone Service, click
the Dependency Records link from the Cisco IP Phone Service Configuration
window. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency
records summary window displays a message. For more information about
dependency records, see the “Accessing Dependency Records” section on
page A-3. If you try to delete a Cisco IP Phone Service that is in use,
Cisco CallManager displays an error message. Before deleting a Cisco IP Phone
Service that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following
tasks:
•
Assign a different Cisco IP Phone Service to any devices that are using the
Cisco IP Phone Service that you want to delete. See the “Updating a Phone”
section on page 57-10.
•
Delete the devices that are using the Cisco IP Phone Service that you want to

Adding a Cisco IP Phone Service to a Phone Button
In addition to adding a Cisco IP Phone Service, so it is available to users on their
phones, you can assign the service to a phone button that is configured as a service
URL. This gives the user one-button access to the service without using the
services button on the IP phone.
Perform the following steps to add a service to a service URL button:
1.
Add the service to Cisco CallManager (see Adding a Cisco IP Phone Service,
page 42-4)
2.
Customize a phone button template by configuring a Service URL button (see
Adding Phone Button Templates, page 59-4)
3.
Add the customized phone button template to the phone (see Adding a Phone,
page 57-5)
4.
Subscribe the service to the phone (see Configuring Cisco IP Phone Services,
