Hello Krishnamurthy,

This is one of the questions that have been asked a lot; unfortunately, we cannot modify the directory nor the Directory pages on CUCM 6.X. However, you can use an external directory application but you will need a developer; if you have someone that could help you programming the new directory, go to the Developer Central site and download the IP Phone SDK, there you will find detailed instructions on how to create a custom directory. The IP Phone SDK contains a directory example. Again, we cannot modify the CCM code / database, but we can create another directory service but will need to get help from a programmer.

Here is the Developer Support Central site:


Hope this helps!
