Translation patterns with bat tool or import

Unanswered Question
Feb 3rd, 2009


I've noticed there isnt an option to add translation patterns in the bat tool for CUCM 6.1.2

Now i see that it may be possible with the import tool. I've tried an export then modified the translation patterns then tried to import but its looking for a csv file and not a tar file. I've tried to load both but it fails.

Has anyone achieved this and do they have a step by step guide on how to do it?


I have this problem too.

So you come to the Net Pro forums expecting help; however, your reply is anything but.

Can you please share with the crowd what you found out through your trial and error?

It wasnt a Cisco error it was my mistake thats why i didnt add the info.

For anyone interested:

I exported the translation patterns using bat on cucm then extracted the translation csv from the rar file and changed the content then simply imported the rar file again to add the new info.

And hey presto it worked..

When you export the translation patterns, you'll be given a .tar file with two files in it. the first is a file called hearder.txt and the second will be called translationpattern.csv.

The header.txt file references the filename translationpattern.csv so make sure you save you're new file with the same name and your new patterns are in the .csv file. Use QuickZip or something and create a new .tar file with the two files in it (header.txt and translationpattern.csv). upload these to callmanager via Bulk Administration --> upload/download files. You can validate your file prior to importing to save yourself some headache.

good luck!

Does your import habe to contain all TP you exported or can just contain TPs you want to add.

Only the new ones.  You can import the old ones, but it would be a waste of resources to overwrite the configuration when there is no change.  But this is a good question, because now you also know, that if you need to change all TP in your system, an export, modify, import procedure would do just that.  Good luck.
