I'm wondering if there is a way to accomplish a task in the BAT tool in CUCM 7.1
What I want to do is update Line Text Label and ASCII Line Text Label on each line. Currently it is left blank, I want it updated to display Firstname Lastname #### (#### = extension).
Is there anyway to do this based on a custom CSV file? For example: create a custom csv file to match on an existing directory number, and update the line text label fields I input into the csv?
All thoughts are appreciated!
You have two options.
1. Using BAT, you can re-import all of your devices with the line associations and line appearances corrected to suit your desire. On import, you will want to "overwrite" duplicate values.
2. Using AXL/SOAP to do a bulk update. This option requires some programming skill or a partner that knows what they are doing here.
Both require some footwork and I'd recommend some testing. But, you can accomplish what you need with BAT using an import file. It may make the most sense to export all of your phone records (BAT Export ALL DETAILS). Then tweak/modify using a macro in excel (for example). Save the text file. Then re-import. Sounds like a little overkill but it is the path of least resistance.
