CUCM 7.1 - Customized Directory

Unanswered Question
Feb 13th, 2010

Hi,

In CUCME you can create an XML file and use it for Local Speed Dial. How do I acheive this in CUCM 7.1? I have a customer that wants local Speed dials common to all users in a department. Can I use the same XML files I have for CUCME, How do I get it to appear on the phone?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

There is no custom directory in CUCM.   You will have to build a custom XML file and point it to a web server that has the directory you want to use.   If its common "speed dials" you can simply add this into the corporate directory.  I have done this.

Or if they are really speed dials, you can use translations.

P.Holey have you been able to complete this?

I have setup IIS and included a XML file, but I get a Parse Error.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

   
  This is my Directory Title
  Give Me A Prompt

What is the correct XML file, or is there anything else that I need?

Hi Neal

Your XML is a bit to cock - it's valid in XML terms, but not valid in Cisco XML API terms.

A correct directory object would be:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

  This is my Directory Title
  Give Me A Prompt

1) The extra bits I've removed (, ) are different XML objects completely. You can't mix them.

2) You had a lower case P on 'Prompt' - the phones are very sensitive to things like that.
