Additional address books needed

Hello.

We have a big desire to have multiple address books on de cisco phones. Our locations have the need to have address books with additional (external) telephone numbers they can choose from on the phone.

I have been searching for a LDAP service for on the cisco phone. The LDAP from the IPphone SDK doesn't work.

Does anybody have ideas on how to service additional address books on a cisco phone?

Re: Additional address books needed

Thanks for the reply but that is not what I ment. We want for every business unit a different addressbook with different (external) contacts. For as far as I know the AD pluging gives you 1 (the same) additional addressbook for everybody

Hi,

I saw your post for the multiple address books. We also want to implement multiple address books. Did you get it finally running?

Re: Additional address books needed

What I have done is put the different contacts in databases and then created Phone services that use asp to query the client database. So if you had 3 departments that needed access to 3 different contact databases you would create 3 phone services that point to the correct asp script and then subscribe the services to the phones respectively.

Example - Phone service

Services.xml

SELECT AN OPTION

EMPLOYEES

KEY CLIENTS

http://X.X.X.X/keyclients.xml

-

KEY VENDORS

http://X.X.X.X/keyvendors.xml

Client XML file

Client Lookup

Enter First 3 Letters of Client

Not sure if that is what you are looking for but hope it helps a little bit.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for your quick reply! I'm looking for the something that you've shown above. Since I'm not a programmer, I'm not familiar with ASP. Should I create the "clients.asp"? Can't I use the "xmldirectory.asp" of CallManager?

Hey David,

Yeah you should be able to use the xmldirectory asp with maybe some tweaks. Basically it doesnt have to be asp you just need to point the phone service to a script that can parse xml data from and to the phone that can also turn around and query a database where the contacts are stored. I have even got it to work by querying a data range in a spreadsheet. I will attach a rar archive that I did for a client. I am by no means a developer so this is the simplest way that I could hodge podge together using a data range in a spreadsheet. I have some other asp files but they are more complicated and would need moderate modifications. The rar file contains all the files to work for 3 different directories. Like I said, I am by no means a programmer this is just what I have been able to get working for a simple quick solution. Hope it helps to get you started.

Cheers!

David,

Here is another ASP file that modifies the number that is returned from the query by looking at if the number is 7 digits or 10 and appends a 9 or 91(areacode).
