Hi,


1. Define a new partition (SAY PT-FAC).

2. Define the route pattern (new one, you can define more then one RP with same pattern ) for which you want to implement FAC, enter FAC level for this pattern as well.

3. Associate PT-FAC to the crated pattern in step 2.

4. Create a new Calling Search Space and associate PT-FAC and all other required Partitions.

5. Assign CSS to the any phone you want to implement.


By doing so you will have two route patterns defined for same number format, one that requires FAC and other doesn't both seperated with PT and CSS.

Hi Syed,


One more question for you. I have implemented FAC on Call manager and it works. I know user will hear two short "beep" before entering FAC. Is there anyway we can program call manager to make a anouancement something like "enter you password after beep"? I have most users complain that they don't know what to do after two beep. Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Dear Steve, I didn't found any parameter for your request. What I have found is you can change the Text that is displayed on IP Phone when it prompts for Authorization code.

You can change the test from "Service parameter" by selecting your call manager server and then "Call Manager" service and changing "Forced Authorization Code Prompt Text"

Hi Iftikhar,

I can't find change "Forced Authorization Code Prompt Text" under "call manager" service in my call manager. My version is 4.1(3). You sure this feature is available in this version? BTW, do you know if Call Manager has cap on the number of FACs?


Thanks!

Hi Steve,


Just to add a note to the great tips from Iftikhar (+5 points Iftikhar)



This Text setting should be available in CCM 4.1(3)under;


Service> Service Parameters> Publisher IP Address> Service = Callmanager> Service Parameters Configuration> Clusterwide Parameters (Device - Phone)> Forced Authorization Code Prompt Text*


Here is another helpful guide;


Forced Authorization Codes (FAC) Configuration Example



http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_configuration_example09186a00807d11d4.shtml


There is no maximum number of FAC Codes that I have ever heard of, the max digits is 16 so there should be that number of permutations available.


Cheers!

Rob

Rob,


Why I don't have that option? My call manager is running 4.1(3)sr4d and ccm admin ver 4.1(0.11). Am I missing something on CCM?


Thanks!

Hey Steve,


I just searched CCO and NetPro for any related info and found someone who couldn't find this setting on their 4.1(2) deployment either. I don't have a 4.1(x) box setup here so I can't look for this text setting. Have you checked the Enterprise Parameters?

Hi,


About Client Matter Codes:


I can do something like that: XXX[2-6]XXX

Something like a route pattern or a dial-peer configuration?


Thanks, Dante

hi friend u can configure the FAC for a user(its not a correct and proper way)you can create different authorization code (ie. 123,124,125) by using same authorization level. and apply the authorization level in RP and give the different authorization code to users. as per the authorization code u can find out the CDR data.
