Yeah, this is what I have been asking for the last seven years, a configuration API for ICM.

I was always told: "Use ICM Configurator or the Agent Reskilling tool, otherwise if you dare to change anything using SQL queries, you will lose support".

Might want to look into CCMP, might do some of the things you're trying to do.

CCMP is extremely painful to use.  Do you know if there is an API to access it?  ICM is in much need of a new admin interface.

It is a complicated solution that requires an expensive API product.  Is this on the road map to be resolved?  Other routing engines have had this capability included for a long time now.

They always say this, but in reality, they have to figure out you have done something unsupported first.  I usually don't divuldge more information to TAC then is required for solving the issue im having....

my opinion is that if I had a reason i needed to create agents outside of the AW, you can bet you ass, I would have figured it out by now, and be using it

Just my 2cents...

Although there is such an API called CONAPI, Cisco does not make it available for general use.   The reason is that the API is not a true SDK.  It doesn't include bulletproof API or appropriate developer documentation.

is this the 'API' or, rather, communication means between the Dynamic Reskilling Tool and ICM itself?



ConAPI has existed for a long time - ever since Webline and the email/web channels. That's where the CmsJServer, CmsNode, application paths etc all comes in. The back end of the Dynamic Reskilling app server is using this, but it was not written for that.

ConAPI is used today for EIM and WIM (based on eGain OEM products) to obtain configuration data from ICM.

Exony VIM offers a Web Service API to allow creation of config items on CCE and CUCM. This includes the creation of Agents, Agent Teams, Skill Groups, Call Types, Dialled Numbers, IP Phones, Directory Numbers etc.

Exony VIM is available through the Cisco Solutions Plus re-seller program.

Hope that helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for the info. I am not quite sure whether this VIM would not be too much, but anyway, I will take a look at it. G.
