Autoregistration Overview
Autoregistration allows Cisco Unified Communications Manager to automatically assign directory numbers
to new phones when you plug those phones in to your network.
Autoregistration is enabled on secure mode now. This enhancement provides greater security for your system
because you can secure your cluster while provisioning new phones. It also simplifies the registration process
because you don't have to disable cluster security to register new phones.
If you create a device pool that allows only 911 (emergency) and 0 (operator) calls, you can use that to prevent
unauthorized endpoints from connecting to your network when autoregistration is enabled. New endpoints
can register to this pool, but their access is limited. Unauthorized access by rogue devices that continuously
boot in and attempt to register to your network is prevented. You can move a phone that has auto-registered
to a new location and assign it to a different device pool without affecting its directory number.
The system doesn't know whether the new phones that are auto-registering are running SIP or SCCP, so you
must specify this when you enable autoregistration. Devices that support both SIP and SCCP (such as Cisco
Unified IP Phones 7911, 7940, 7941, 7960, 7961, 7970, and 7971) auto-register with the protocol that is
specified in the enterprise parameter called Auto Registration Phone Protocol.
Devices that support only a single protocol will auto-register with that protocol. The Auto Registration Phone
Protocol setting is ignored. For example, any Cisco Unified IP Phones that support SCCP only will autoregister
with SCCP even if the Auto Registration Phone Protocol parameter is set to SIP.
We recommend that you use autoregistration to add fewer than 100 phones to your network. To add more
than 100 phones, use the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT). For more information, see Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Bulk Administration Guide at http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/
unified-communications/unified-communications-manager-callmanager/products-maintenance-guides-list.html.

Enabling autoregistration carries a security risk. Enable autoregistration only for brief periods while you add
new endpoints to the network.

devices to use for autoregistration.
To configure the Default device pool for autoregistration, assign the Default Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Group and the autoregistration calling search space (CSS) to the Default device pool. If you choose
to configure a separate default device pool for SIP and SCCP devices, use the default device pool values.

Enable Autoregistration
When you enable autoregistration, you must specify a range of directory numbers that get assigned to the new
endpoints as they connect to the network. As each new endpoint connects, the next available directory number
is assigned. After all the available autoregistration directory numbers are used up, no more endpoints can
auto-register.
New endpoints auto-register with the first Cisco Unified Communications Manager node in the group that
has the Auto-Registration Cisco Unified Communications Manager Group setting enabled. That node
then automatically assigns each auto-registered endpoint to a default device pool according to the device type.
Before You Begin

• Create a device pool, calling search space, and route partition that restricts the access of devices that are
auto-registering to allow only internal calls.
• Ensure that directory numbers are available in the autoregistration range.
• Ensure that there are enough license points available to register the new phones.

Step 3
In the Cisco Unified CM Configuration widow, configure the autoregistration parameters for the node in
the Auto-registration Information section, then click Save. For field descriptions, see the online help.
a) Select the universal device template to use for autoregistration from the drop-down list.
If no universal device template is created for autoregistration, you can select Default Universal Device
Template. Just make sure that the selected template specifies the device pool that is to be used for
autoregistration from User Management > User/Phone Add > Universal Device Template.
b) Select the universal line template to use for autoregistration from the drop-down list.
If no universal line template is created for autoregistration, you can select Default Universal Line
Template. Just make sure that the selected template specifies the calling search space and the route partition
that are to be used for autoregistration from User Management > User/Phone Add > Universal Line
Template.
c) Enter the starting and ending directory numbers in to the Starting Directory Number and Ending
Directory Number fields.
Setting the starting and ending directory numbers to the same value disables autoregistration.
d) Uncheck Auto-registration Disabled on this Cisco Unified Communications Manager to enable
autoregistration for this node.
Always enable or disable autoregistration on only the selected Cisco Unified Communications Manager node.
If you switch the autoregistration function to another node in the cluster, you must reconfigure the Cisco
Unified Communications Manager nodes, the Default Cisco Unified Communications Manager group, and
the default device pools that you used.
Step 4
Select System > Cisco Unified CM Group, then click Find in the Find and List Cisco Unified
Communications Manager Groups window.
Step 5
Select the Cisco Unified Communications Manager group to enable for autoregistration.
In most cases, the name of this group is Default. You can choose a different Cisco Unified Communications
Manager group. The group must have at least one node selected.
Step 6
In the Cisco Unified CM Group Configuration window for that group, select Auto-registration Cisco
Unified Communications Manager Group to enable autoregistration for the group, then click Save.
Tip
Ensure that the Selected Cisco Unified Communications Managers list contains the node that you
configured for autoregistration. Use the arrows to move the node to appear in the list. The Cisco Unified
Communications Manager nodes get selected in the order in which they are listed. Save your changes.
Install the devices that you want to auto-register.

Reuse Autoregistration Numbers
When you connect a new device to the network, the system assigns the next available autoregistration directory
number to that device. If you manually change the directory number of an auto-registered device, or if you
delete that device from the database, the autoregistration directory number of that device can be reused.
When a device attempts to auto-register, the system searches the range of autoregistration numbers that you
specified and tries to find the next available directory number to assign to the device. It begins the search with
the next directory number in sequence after the last one that was assigned. If it reaches the ending directory
number in the range, the system continues to search from the starting directory number in the range.
You can reset the range of autoregistration directory numbers and force the system to search from the starting
number in the range.
