To associate ephone-dns with individual buttons on a Cisco Unified IP phone and to specify line type or ring behavior, use the button command in ephone configuration mode.

button button-number {separator} dn-tag [,dn-tag...] [button-number{x}overlay-button-number] [button-number...]

m-Monitor mode for a shared line. Visible line status indicates whether the line is in-use or not. Monitored lines cannot be used on this phone for incoming or outgoing calls.

o-Overlay line. Multiple ephone-dns share a single button, up to a maximum of 25 on a button. See also the c keyword.

Hi, in my knowledge there are not these features implemented in CUCM.

For the monitor feature you can use a BLF (Busy Lamp Field) button or a BLS w/SD (with Speed Dial) to "emulate" the behaviuor.

For overlay button you can configured shared lines or hunt lists, but it is not the same since you can assign only a line to a button in CUCM.
