Jabber 9.6 adding external contact?

What is the way to allow clients to add external contacts in Jabber 9.6

Cisco Employee

i think you are referring to

i think you are referring to the "custom contact" section; this is supported with jabber for windows 9.7 for on_prem setup; more information for the same can be viewed from the following link;


Custom Contacts

Custom contacts are only supported in on-premises deployments.

Custom Contacts are contact entries for people who are not part of your organization's directory. You can create custom contacts a number of ways:

From File menu on the hub window From right-clicking an entry in the Call History or Voicemail tab and selecting Create custom contact

  • Importing federated contacts

Custom contacts support up to six phone numbers or SIP URI addresses, which follow a format. Custom contacts can be created without an IM address or Jabber ID. After a custom contact is created, the value entered in the IM address field cannot be changed.

Custom contacts require no additional administrative configuration.
