What's New in Release 11.1(1)
Configurable System Language
The new parameter UseSystemLanguage determines which language is used for Cisco Jabber. The default
value for this parameter is false.
The Cisco Jabber language is determined using the following logic:
1 The system checks the bootstrap file. If the language is specified in the bootstrap file (using the
LANGUAGE parameter), then the specified language is used.
2 If the language is not specified in the bootstrap file, then the following logic applies:

Introduction
What's New in Release 11.1
• If the UseSystemLanguage parameter is set to true in the jabber-config.xml file, then the language
is set to the same value as the operating system.
• If the UseSystemLanguage parameter is set to false in the jabber-config.xml file (or not included at
all), then Cisco Jabber uses the regional language as specified by the user. The regional language is
set at Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Region and Language > Change the date,
time, or number format > Formats tab > Format dropdown.
Note
When this parameter is specified in the jabber-config.xml file on a TFTP server, it becomes effective only
after the client is restarted (File > Exit).
For more information about parameters, see the Cisco Jabber Deployment and Installation Guide.
Build Number Reported to Cisco Unified Communications Manager
The exact Cisco Jabber for Windows build number is reported to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
The build number can be seen from the Device Settings and Phone Configuration windows on Cisco Unified
Communications Manager.
Automatic Sign-in Option Enabled with Installation
A new installer parameter, AUTOMATIC_SIGN_IN, allows you to check the Sign me in when Cisco Jabber
starts check box when the user installs Cisco Jabber. The default value for this installer parameter is false.
For more information about command line arguments, see the Cisco Jabber Deployment and Installation
Guide.
What's New in Release 11.1
IBM Notes Contact Search
Users can now search for and add local IBM Notes contacts to their contact lists. Configure this feature with
the new EnableLotusNotesContactResolution parameter. The default value for this parameter is false, meaning
that users cannot search for or add local IBM Notes contacts. For more information about the
EnableLotusNotesContactResolution parameter, see the Cisco Jabber 11.0 Parameters Reference Guide.
For this contact resolution to work properly, the Messaging ID field in IBM Notes must have a valid value.
Note
Users cannot add contacts from both Microsoft Outlook and IBM Notes.
Jabber to Jabber Calling
This feature applies to cloud deployments only.
Jabber to Jabber calling provides basic voice and video calling between Cisco Jabber clients without Cisco
Unified Communications Manager registration. Jabber to Jabber calling is supported only for users who
authenticate to the Cisco WebEx Messenger service. Multiple Jabber to Jabber calls are not supported. Jabber
to Jabber calling supports the following basic calling features:

• To request that your organization be added to the Cisco Common Identity server. This process to
add users to the Common Identity server takes some time to complete and is necessary to access
Jabber to Jabber calling capabilities.
• For single sign-on (SSO) users, there are extra steps to perform to ensure that SSO setup is completed
successfully for your organization.
For more information about Jabber to Jabber calling, see the Jabber to Jabber Call section of the Cisco Jabber
11.0 Deployment and Installation Guide.
Documentation Improvements
Cisco Jabber for Windows end-user documentation, including videos and getting started content, is now also
available on the Help Central knowledge base at https://help.webex.com/community/jabber. Documentation
for system administrators remains at http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/unified-communications/
jabber-windows/tsd-products-support-series-home.html.
Information about Cisco Jabber parameters has been removed from the Cisco Jabber 11.0 Deployment and
Installation Guide and included in a new document titled Cisco Jabber 11.0 Parameters Reference Guide.
You can find this new document at this link: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/unified-communications/
jabber-windows/products-installation-guides-list.html
What's New in Release 11.0(1)
Compliance and Audit Support for IM-only Screen Sharing
For all IM-only screen sharing events, you can now configure Cisco Jabber clients to send information about
all user actions to the Presence server for compliance or auditing purposes. This feature is useful if you want
to collect information about IM-only screen sharing, for example, users who initiate screen shares, users who
accept screen share invites, users who request control during screen shares, or users who end screen shares.
Configure this support with the ScreenShareAuditMessages parameter. The default value is false, whereby
Cisco Jabber does not send any information to the Presence server about user actions during IM-only screen
sharing.

Introduction
What's New in Release 11.0(1)
Note
If you want to enable this feature, ensure that all Cisco Jabber clients are running at least release 11.0(1).
If some clients are running older versions, the information that is collected during IM-only screen sharing
is sent to the older Cisco Jabber clients as instant messages.
Administrator Control of Saving Chats to Microsoft Outlook
This release provides greater Administrator control of the feature to save chats to Microsoft Outlook. The
EnableSaveChatHistoryToExchange parameter has been removed and replaced with a new parameter
SaveChatHistoryToExchangeOperationMode, which can have one of the following values:
• DisabledByPolicy—This is the default value. Users cannot save chat history to Microsoft Outlook. The
Outlook tab of the Options menu is not visible.
• EnabledByPolicy—Chats are saved to Microsoft Outlook. The option Save chat sessions to "Cisco
Jabber Chats" Folder in Microsoft Outlook is visible on the Outlook tab of the Options menu, but it
is greyed out and users cannot change it.
Note
With this option, you must set up a method of authentication for the client to authenticate
with the Exchange server. You can choose to authenticate using single sign-on, or by
synching credentials. See the Cisco Jabber 11.0 Deployment and Installation Guide for
more information.
• DisabledByDefault—Users have the option to save chats to Microsoft Outlook. The option Save chat
sessions to "Cisco Jabber Chats" Folder in Microsoft Outlook is unchecked on the Outlook tab of
the Options menu, but users can change it.
• EnabledByDefault—Users have the option to save chats to Microsoft Outlook. The option Save chat
sessions to "Cisco Jabber Chats" Folder in Microsoft Outlook is checked on the Outlook tab of the
Options menu, but users can change it.
Work Number Shown in Microsoft Outlook 2010 Contact Card
In previous releases, when URI Dialing is enabled and Cisco Jabber is running, Microsoft Outlook 2010
contacts show the SIP URI in the click-to-call menu, but no phone number is shown in the contact information.
The phone number is shown when Cisco Jabber is not running. This is a known limitation with Microsoft
Outlook 2010. In Microsoft Outlook 2013, both the SIP URI and the phone number are shown when Cisco
Jabber is running.
With release 11.0(1), the business phone number is shown as the default for click-to-call from Microsoft
Outlook 2010.
Email Subject Field in Group Chat Topic Label
When users launch a group chat from a Microsoft Outlook email, the group chat topic is prepopulated with
the Subject field of the email. Users can edit the topic in the group chat pop-up prior to starting the group
chat.

Introduction
What's New in Release 11.0
SIP URI Support in Contact Source Phone Fields
In previous releases, Cisco Jabber did not recognize SIP URIs in phone number fields in any contact source,
and converted each SIP URI to a numeric value in the user profile window. With this release, SIP URI values
are now maintained and displayed correctly in the user profile window.
Administrator Control of Extend and Connect Device Editing for Users with Multiple Devices
In previous releases, the Extend and Connect functionality operates as follows:
• Users with a single extend and connect device and no other devices cannot edit or add new remote
destinations. You can allow users to edit or add remote destinations by setting the
UserDefinedRemoteDestinations parameter to true.
• Users with multiple devices can always edit or add remote destinations. This is not configurable.
With this release, the RemoteDestinationEditingWithMultipleDevices parameter allows you to determine
whether users with multiple devices can edit or add remote destinations. Set this parameter to false to disallow
users with multiple devices to edit or add remote destinations. The default value for this new parameter is
true.
Read-only Username on Sign In Screen after Successful First Login
A new parameter, MakeUsernameReadOnly, provides the option to make the Username field on the Sign
In screen read-only after the user logs in successfully for the first time. The default setting for this parameter
is false. When set to true the MakeUsernameReadOnly parameter delivers the following user experience:
• On first login, the Username field is available for user input.
• After a successful login, the Username field becomes read-only on the Sign-in screen for all subsequent
logins.
• To reenable the Username field, or to switch to a different user, users must reset Cisco Jabber from the
File menu.
New Chat Font Sizes
Two new font sizes have been added, sizes 8 and 9. Font size 10 remains the default font size for chats.
New Emoticons
29 new emoticons have been added.
What's New in Release 11.0
Calling Features
• Far End Camera Control—For devices that support it, you can direct cameras on the other end of
video calls and control the screen layout during conference calls. An icon is displayed in calls using

video conferencing using Cisco Webex Personal Rooms (Webex PR).
• Audio and Video Bridge Conferencing—With one click, escalate an IM conversation to audio and
video conferencing using standards-based third party conferencing solutions
• DTMF Digit Management—While on a call, cut and paste DTMF digits to enter a PIN number. You
can also include DTMF digits with your protocol handlers to create links that participants can use to
quickly access their meetings. Use commas after phone numbers and prior to DTMF numbers to denote
a one second pause; you need at least one comma to indicate DTMF digits. For example, if you have a
meeting with dial in number of 1800-123456, and an PIN for entry of 5678#, then you can use tel uri in
the format tel:1800123456,,,5678# to enter the meeting with one click.

• Hide Call Controls—If your users use Cisco Jabber for calls, but manage their calls using another
application, then you can disable the call control strip on the calling window so that users are presented
with video-only window. You can enable this feature using the HideCallControlStrip parameter, which
is disabled by default. For more information on setting up this feature, see the Cisco Jabber 11.0
Parameters Reference Guide
Chat and Presence Features
• Enterprise Groups for Cisco Unified Communications Manager—You can add an enterprise group
to your Cisco Jabber contacts using the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) groups in your enterprise.
Because the group is maintained in your corporate directory, your client contact list is updated dynamically
to synchronize with the directory group. Directory groups require Cisco Unified Communications
Manager IM and Presence Service 11.0. If a group contains more than 100 people, then no presence is
displayed for those contacts. For cloud deployments, enterprise groups are already supported in the
client.
• Play Sounds for Chat Messages—Choose whether to play sounds for all messages or only for the first
message per conversation.

Introduction
Limitations and Restrictions
Limitations and Restrictions
Limitations and Restrictions For All Deployments
Call History Limit
The client can store up to 250 entries in your call history.
Certificate Requirements for Non-Domain Computers
All computers that run Cisco Jabber must have both base and delta Certificate Revocation List (CRL) files.
Computers within the domain automatically get these files, but computers outside of the domain require
manual installation of the base and delta CRL files. These files are required for Cisco Jabber to trust to the
Cisco WebEx Meetings Server certificate.
Cisco Medianet Support
The Cisco Medianet Metadata feature is no longer supported in Cisco Jabber for Windows.
The Cisco Medianet CDP driver leveraged by the Cisco Jabber desk phone video feature is supported for
Windows 7 & 8 deployments. The desk phone video feature and Cisco Medianet CDP driver installation are
not supported on Windows 10 workstations.
Cisco Unity Connection Dispatch Messages
In Cisco Unity Connection, a dispatch message is sent to a distribution list with the message configured in
such a way that only one user responds to that message. A user can accept, decline, or postpone the dispatch
message. Cisco Jabber for Windows does not support Cisco Unity Connection dispatch messages.
Configuration Parameters for Photo Retrieval
You must include the configuration parameters for photo retrieval in the global configuration XML file
(jabber-config.xml). If you include them in the group configuration XML file, photo retrieval might fail.
Location Feature and Multiple Domain Support in Release 11.1
Consider the following deployment scenario:
When you deployed your Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Service node, all users
were imported with single domain support. You subsequently changed the address scheme to Directory URI
(multiple domain support).
The location feature will now not work for newly added domain users. Users in the initial domain are unaffected.
This limitation is documented in CSCuu76519.
Microsoft Outlook Local Contacts and Presence
Users' presence is unknown when the contact is manually added to contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2010 and
2013, when the contact is added to local (custom) contacts with an email address type of SMTP. To resolve
this issue, delete the contact and add it again manually, ensuring the email address type is Exchange (EX).
This item is documented in CSCuo57172.

Introduction
Limitations and Restrictions For All Deployments
Plantronics Accessories and Software
If you use Plantronics accessories for Cisco Jabber call management, and if you have Plantronics Hub installed,
ensure that at least version 3.5 is installed. Download Plantronics Hub 3.5 from the Plantronics website.
SAML Single Sign-On Limitations
When configuring SAML SSO on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Unity Connection servers,
you must use a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) instead of an IP Address to define the server name. If
you use an IP Address, the client displays a warning message that the certificate is not valid. The requirement
to use an FQDN is because the embedded Internet Explorer browser is not able to validate IP addresses in the
Subject Alternate Name (SAN) certificate.
Space Characters in Credentials
The following rules apply to space characters and credentials:
• Usernames can contain spaces in on-premises deployments.
• Usernames cannot contain spaces in cloud-based deployments.
• Passwords cannot contain spaces in any deployment scenario.
• The first and last characters of usernames in on-premises deployments must not be spaces. This is also
true for usernames synchronized from a directory source.
Special Characters in Usernames or Passwords
Users with upper ACSII characters in their usernames or passwords is supported in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager 9.1(2) or later, or users must use lower ASCII characters for their username and
passwords for earlier versions. The Cisco Jabber for Windows softphone fails to register with Cisco Unified
Communications Manager when users enter some special characters such as ü, ä, or ö in the username or
password. The user receives the following error message: “Invalid username or password
entered. Go to Phone Services in the Options window and enter the correct
username and password".
Upgrades from Release 10.6.6
If you are upgrading from Cisco Jabber Release 10.6.6, you must complete the following procedure:
1 Uninstall Cisco Jabber.
2 Delete all the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Cisco Systems\Cisco Jabber\
3 Install Cisco Jabber 11.0(x)
If you do not remove all the files from the specified location, installation of Cisco Jabber 11.0(x) will fail.
Using Click-To-X feature with Contacts in Microsoft Outlook
If you use UDS as a directory source, users can only use Click-To-X capabilities, such as Click-To-Call and
Click-To-IM, to contact Microsoft Outlook users if they are already in the cache file. A cache file is created
for someone if they are in the users' Cisco Jabber contacts list, or have a Cisco Jabber history created by the
user previously searching, IMing, or calling them, or by leaving a voice message.

Introduction
Limitations and Restrictions For On-Premises Deployments
Limitations and Restrictions For On-Premises Deployments
Creating and Configuring Devices for Users in Cisco Unified Communications Manager 11.0
If you are creating devices for users in Cisco Unified Communications Manager 11.0, you can now specify
a key order as RSA Only, EC Only or EC Preferred, RSA Backup. However, the EC Only option is not
currently supported by Cisco Jabber, and if you select it, the client will fail to connect to the server.
Multiple Resource Login
When a user signs in to multiple instances of the client at the same time, the chat feature behaves as follows
in on-premises deployments (more on multiple resource login in Common Deployment Scenarios):
• Signing in on one client changes custom availability states to 'Available' on other clients.
• If you set the availability state from 'On a call' to another state while on a call, the availability state does
not automatically change to 'On a call' for subsequent calls.
Space Characters in Credentials
The following rules apply to space characters and credentials in on-premises deployment scenarios:
• Usernames can contain spaces in on-premises deployments.
• Passwords cannot contain spaces in any deployment scenario.
• The first and last characters of usernames in on-premises deployments must not be spaces. This is also
true for usernames synchronized from a directory source.
Server Presence Issue in Client
If you use Cisco Unified Presence 8.6.5 SU2 or earlier, or Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and
Presence 9.1.1 SU1 or earlier, the client might display users' presence as offline when the user is actually
online and has a network connection. This presence issue is fixed in Cisco Unified Presence 8.6.5 SU3 and
Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence 9.1.1 SU1 and 10.0.1. This item is documented in
CSCui29999.
Contacting Federated Users After Changing Privacy Policies
Users may experience issues contacting federated users in the scenario below when the privacy policy is
changed:
1 Users add federated contact to their contact lists.
2 Users change the policy for contacts outside the domain from Prompt me every time to Block everyone
on the Privacy tab of the Options window.
As a result, the federated contacts remain in the contact list but do not display availability. Likewise, users
cannot send or receive instant messages from those federated contacts.
3 Users change that policy from Block everyone to Prompt me every time.
As a result, Cisco Unified Presence removed the federated contacts from the contact lists. Cisco Unified
Presence does not repopulate the federated contacts.

contact list as part of an enterprise group. For example, User A blocks User B. However, User A is in User
B's contact list as part of an enterprise group. As a result, User B can view User A's availability status.
Jabber to Jabber Calls
For Release 11.1, we recommend running Internet Explorer 10 or greater while using the Jabber to Jabber
calling feature. Using this feature with previous versions of Internet Explorer or with Internet Explorer in
Compatibility Mode can cause issues with Cisco Jabber client login (non-SSO setup) or Jabber to Jabber
calling capability (SSO setup).
Photo Display
In late 2011, the WebEx server made changes to how photos are stored and formatted on the server. Due to
this change, any photo uploaded before January 1, 2012 is not displayed in the client. To resolve the issue,
users must re-upload the photo. For more information on this item, see CSCui05676.
Users in Common Identity
There is a known issue with signing into Cisco Jabber for some users who have migrated to Common Identity.
If users receive an Incorrect user name or password error message when entering their username and password,
see the following knowledge base article https://cisco-support.webex.com/guest/articles/en_US/Troubleshooting/
WBX000019555/myr=false
Performance and Behavior Notes
Display Name Changes in Corporate Directory
When a user's first name or last name is changed either in LDAP or UDS directories, Cisco Jabber does not
automatically update this information in the contact list for all watchers of this user. Users must manually
update their contact lists using the following procedure:
1 Remove the contact from their contact list.
2 Sign out of Cisco Jabber.
3 Reset Cisco Jabber.
Click the gear icon and select File > Reset Cisco Jabber.
4 Sign in to Cisco Jabber again.
5 Add the contact again.
Jabber to Jabber Calls and Symantec Host IDS (HIDS)
Jabber to Jabber calls can trigger errors in Symantec HIDS.
Cisco Jabber for Windows 11.0.x and 11.1.x Release Notes
15
Introduction
Caveats
Symantec HIDS has a rule that disables connections from internet-based servers if it receives 5 connection
requests from the same internet-based server within 200 seconds. For example, 3 Jabber to Jabber calls within
200 seconds will trigger Symantec HIDS. When this happens, ongoing Jabber to Jabber calls are dropped and
Jabber to Jabber calls are disabled for 600 seconds.
To avoid this scenario, you must add Cisco Jabber to the Symantec exception list.
Removing Participants During Conference Calls
Users can only remove participants from a conference call when using the softphone(CSF) device for calls.
Users can't remove participants from conference calls in desk phone control mode or using extend and connect.
Phone-only Mode after Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Service Upgrade
For on-premise deployments, if Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Service is upgraded
from release 9.1(1) to release 10.5(2) and clients appear in phone-only mode after the upgrade, then all clients
must be reset.
Caveats
Caveats describe unexpected behavior. The following sections describe how to obtain the latest information.
Bug Severity Levels
Known defects, or bugs, have a severity level that indicates the priority of the defect. These release notes
include the following bug types:
• All severity level 1 or 2 bugs
• Significant severity level 3 bugs
• All customer-found bugs except severity level 6 enhancement requests
Severity Level
Description
1 Catastrophic
Reasonably common circumstances cause the entire system to fail, or a major subsystem
to stop working, or other devices on the network to be disrupted. No workarounds exist.
2 Severe
Important functions are unusable and workarounds do not exist. Other functions and the
rest of the network is operating normally.
3 Moderate
Failures occur in unusual circumstances, or minor features do not work at all, or other
failures occur but low-impact workarounds exist.
This is the highest level for documentation bugs.
4 Minor
Failures occur under very unusual circumstances, but operation essentially recovers
without intervention. Users do not need to install any workarounds and performance
impact is tolerable.
5 Cosmetic
Defects do not cause any detrimental effect on system functionality.
