I am looking for a way to bulk update users with a unique PIN and Password.
I'd like to use the user's DN as their default PIN and Password, see the example below;
For security reasons, my customer would like each voicemail user to have their initial password and pin set to their directory number.
I've looked in CUCXN's Bulk Edit Utility and Bulk Administration Tool and I can only find an option to apply a
single pin to all users, not a unique one for each. Any ideas?
Just as a follow up.
1. No, BAT doesn't support updating PIN (phone) and Password (GUI web access) - I think there's a feature request against the platform team to support this but I'm not sure if/when it's going to be picked up.
2. There is no AXL interface for doing this on a stand alone Connection server - you can use ODBC directly via stored procs and in 8.x you can use the REST based API for this as well.
3. I have a Bulk PW Reset tool on deck for Connection (there's already one out there for Unity) - it's a couple tools down on the to-do list but I may be able to jump the queue. I would be a simple CSV based tool similiar to what you describe - it wouldn't check up front for authentication policy violations so basically if you try and change passwords to something too short/simple for what your policy settings allow you'll get a cascade of failures - not ideal but it keeps things simple.
you can ping me back if you're interested in taking a look at something like this early - I may have something this weekend if you need it.
