Sadly, there is no built-in method to do this in CUCM. This question does pop up from time to time;
This solution (paraphrased) is presented in the Cisco Press book - Configuring Callmanager and Unity (A Step by Step Guide)
You can use a Unity Call Handler (with the same Extension as the Meet-Me DN)
Set up the Call Handler to do a Supervised Transfer to Ring the Meet-Me Conference.
Under the "Gather Caller Information" section of the Call Handler check "Confirm" and "Ask Callers Name"
When callers go through the Unity Call Handler they are asked to record their name, when the caller is forwarded to the Meet-Me Conference the name is played and conference participants are asked to Press 1 to accept the call or Press 2 to reject the call.
There is a nice discussion of this setup in this post (Thanks Deji and Robert);

Hope this helps!
I have previusly made a script in CCX that solves your problem (almost).
The inviter calls a CRS-RP and the system identifies that the call is a internal call, and look up in a database, to see if the conference is active. if the conference is not active, the inviter is asked to enter pincode, and to confirm pincode. Next the inviter is asked for how long the meeting should be active. after this the inviter is told to hang up and initiate Meetme to number XX.
Inviter hangs up, and activate Meetme.
Participants call in to same CRS-RP as inviter, but now the conference is active, so the participant is asked to enter pincode. If correct the participant is transfered to the meetme number XX.
The CRS-RP is reachabel from external, but the meetme numbers are only reachabel from internal.
All conferences are in a database, so you can see how often it is used.
Hope this could be possible way.
Downside is that if you know the number of the meetme, you can bypass the security check.
can you share the script with all & can you explain how we can make it work exactly ...
by the way i have CCM 6.1
The script and desciption is sent to you in seperate mail. If other wish to have this send me an email.
You must have a Premium version of CCX to use database features.
If you have no database access, maybe the script can be rebuild to support XML files.
ps: I cannot get the system to accept a .doc attachment and a .zip, so email me!
Could you send me the script you used for the meet-me integration?
My email is mjberry [a-t] krollontrack.com
Coul you share your script at email@example.com
Thank a lot for you support and we really appreciate your contribution.
I have been tracking down this blog on UCCX Meet-Me script and it had led me to your posting. I would like to acquire that script so I can make it work with my UCCX premium...firstname.lastname@example.org.
thank you for your availability, but I solved the problem. Now I have a working script for Meet -me conference access.
Hey Martin. Could you send me the MeetMe script for UCCX (again)?
Your script sound like it's exactly what I am looking for. If you would share it with me I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
I have been trying to find a way to initiate a meet-me conference from UCCX and I have not been able to find a solution yet. For the sound of it your scrip seems to have a way of doing it. Is it possible I get a cpoy of your script? my email address is email@example.com.
Thank you in advance for your help on this,
I know this is an old thread but I am hoping that you could please help and send me this script you created. This is something I am working on and exactly what I am looking for,
Would appreciate it if you could help,
Could you kindly send me the script too at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for contributing.
I am using UCCX version 8.0, is this solution still aplicable?
