Re: "Digest Credential" User Config field

help -> for this page

can give you the info of any field you need and sometimes is easier than looking into info from CCO, learn how to use that resource:

Enter a string of alphanumeric characters.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses the digest credentials that you specify here to validate the credentials that the phone offers during digest authentication. The digest credentials that you enter in this field get associated with the phone when you choose a digest user in the Phone Configuration window.

Note : For more information on digest authentication, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.

Re: "Digest Credential" User Config field

One purpose that I know of is 3rd party SIP Phones do not register to call manager by MAC Address like normal Cisco SCCP devices would. They register with a Digest username and password and this is where you tie a Digest Username to a device for Directory Number info and such.

This has been the only time I have ever populated that value.
