Jabber - add a 2nd line and extension mobility


CUCM 10.5.2

Jabber for Windows

Jabber for Mac

1) 2nd line -

In CUCM the configuration for either jabber will allow me to add a 2nd line to the phone,,  but when I launch my jabber I do not see the second line.

In CUCM  (on device page) to the left is Association and lists the Lines on the phone.   The 2nd line shows under 'unassigned association items".  If I click on Modify Button items , the page that is brought up will not allow me to move the 2nd line to the to the 'associated items'  - get a pop up window that stated I have to remove the item in the 'associated items' in order to move this 2nd line over.

this is the same for both Mac or Windows jabbers that I have configured.

I am doing something incorrect to configure OR does jabber not allow a second line ?

2) extension mobility

I dont see where I can add a  service  such as for extension mobility,  I use EM for my agents  and was hoping they could log in like they can the desk phones or the Cisco Ip Communicator  since Finesse does not like 2 'devices'.

Is this possible, if so can you give me some advice on configuring.


1.The button item template

1.The button item template you are using contains two extensions, this does not imply Jabber can have two extensions however. Jabber can only have one extension at a time, 

2.  once you configure  phone, in CUCM, got to the phone configuration, than top right, pull down the menu (related links) and choose "subscribe services"

Hi Dennis,

Hi Dennis,

thanks for the update on the inability to have a 2nd line on a jabber for Windows or Mac.

Kind of stinks !

For the Extension Mobility - which I use extensively currently with desk phones and CIPC - the Jabber Device does not give that as an option in the 'related links' where Subscribe Services is normally located.  I attached a screen shot of the jabber device and that pull down menu.

Just wondering if this is not allowed for jabber or is there another way to do it.

Ah OK, no, subscribe services

Ah OK, no, subscribe services does not work on CSF devices no,

why would you want to do that anyway?

I have agents that work both

I have agents that work both at home and in the office. When in the office they use a desk phone  and at home they have been using Cisco IP Communicator.

We use Finesse which does not like the agent to have 2 devices associated to the rmjtapi user. So to get around that , we config the CIPC and Desk phones to have 'dummy numbers' , the agents then Login using EM, and the EM is the 'device' associated to the rmjtapi user.

Now agents are starting to get Mac laptops and the CIPC does not work on Mac.  So it looks as though they now have to use jabber all the time.

Jabber has some disadvantages / caveats that dont necessarily make  it  great choice.  This lack of EM is one of them, cant have a 2nd line, only works with Unity Connection, and can't have speed dials are the disadvantages I have found so far.

if it helps, you could add a

if it helps, you could add a Jabbe custom tab, to allow agent to log in and out of hunt groups:

All of your points are valid

All of your points are valid and have been pain points for years as Cisco has dragged their feet with multi-line support. I keep promising that it's coming in next release and then we find out it is pulled. I believe it will be supported in near feature once they work out some challenges with multi-line across MRA for what it's worth.
