We would like to add and additional directory to our Cisco phones.
I have downloaded the SDK and we are looking at the details but some things are still a little unclear.
From what I understand an additional directory will have to sit on an external server and we can use AD as the data source.
How do I make the additional directory, the query fields, and the returned data display on the Cisco phones?
Would this be done via XML scripts that sit on the external server?
In CUCM Administration-->System-->Enterprise Parameters-->Phone URL Parameters-->URL Directories I can see that CUCM points to "http://ip address:8080/ccmcip/xmldirectory.jsp"
If I change the URL Directories field then it looks like CUCM can be pointed to my external server ...but then I am guessing that CUCM will not be able to see the built in Corp Directory, etc, anymore?
So there would have to be scripting to make the Corp Directory, etc, work as well?
Also will changing the URL Directories field cause anything to happenn with the Missed Call, Recieved Calls, and Placed Calls directories?
I also see how DirSync can be enabled on CUCM so it will get AD data, store it locally, and query against it.
If DirSync is enabled and I point the URL Directories field to my external server does CUCM stop querying the AD data locally?
