Adding Sip Phones - "End User" Vs "Application User"

Can we use "Application User" as the  'Owner ID' & 'Digest User' when Adding a 3rd Party Sip Phone? Since our CUCM is integrated with LDAP, we cannot create new 'End User' without calling the AD Administrator.

You need an End User account. Just create a new OU in LDAP and place all of the phones there if they are not assigned to a real user.  Assign a long/random password to secure the account from all other logins.

Hi


As I recall, application users don't have digest credentials, so no.

Under CUCM 9.1.1 and later, you can sync to ldap/active directory and also have end users not in the ldap/active directory.


You can sync, and create the end users for the 3rd party SIP phones.
