Corporate Directory from the IP phone? I am not aware of a feature allowing you to see presence status through IP phone corp directory.
Yes this is a feature and it does work with the corporate directory. Please check out the following link.
Cool. So a person scrolling through the corp directory and or Missed calls, etc they will see the BLF indicator on the screen? (if all the stars are aligned in CUCM)
I have a customer with CUCM 6.1.4 synced with AD with phone number in this format: "0033 123456 XXX" where XXX is the internal extension (=line number).
When it scrolls the corporate directory, he can see the presence information, even if the phone number is not exactly matching the extension number. I mean, the phone number is in long format, but the CUCM succeeds to search the presence information for the XXX internal DN.
I am trying to reproduce this in CUCM 7.1 but if the phone number is not exactly the same in CorpoDir entries, there is no presence icon on the IPPhone.
Does someone know why?
I just found back how to implement presence in corporate directory when the directory number is not the exact same pattern than the real DN (E.164 syntax for instance). The Presence Subscribe CSS of the phones must contain a translation pattern translating the E.164 into the real DN syntax. For instance, a TP "\+352123456.XXXX" --> "XXXX". In this way, the phone will display line presence of XXXX DN when the corporate directory shows +352123456XXXX. I think it could work in 5.1. Try it and tell us. Best regards, Yorick.
Before I add a TP in CSS, the Corporate Directory entries in phone display did not show presence icon because the line number does no match exactly the real DN of the phone. After the add of the TP "123456.XXX" --> "XXX", the presence icon appears in the C.D. I assume it is because the CSS_Presence of the phone "looks" to match the line number, finds the TP and looks forward for the real DN presence.
Try it and tell us.
