The new Jabber version 9.7 brings the feature to create custom contacts. Also I am able to import custom users via xml files.
Importing users via xml is described in the link below, but I'm not able to add a phone number to the custom contact via xml.
Does anyone know how the parameter of phone numbers(office,mobile,...) sound like?
Thanks in advance
I only found this one:
|<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>||XML declaration.|
Your definitions file must contain an XML declaration with the following attributes:
|buddylist||Root element of the contact list definition.|
|group||Parent element of a contact group.|
One group can contain multiple users.
There is no limit to the number of users a group can contain. There is also no limit to the number of groups you can include in a contact list definitions file.
However, your server sets a restriction to the number of contacts that you can add to Cisco Jabber. You must ensure you do not exceed that limit in your contact list definitions file.
|gname||Specifies the name of the group.|
|user||Parent element that holds details for a single user.|
|uname||Specifies the instant messaging (IM) address of a user.|
|fname||Specifies the name that displays in the client user interface.|
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <buddylist> <group> <gname>Sales</gname> <user> <uname>email@example.com</uname> <fname>Adam McKenzie</fname> </user> <user> <uname>firstname.lastname@example.org</uname> <fname>Anita Perez</fname> </user> </group> <group> <gname>Marketing</gname> <user> <uname>email@example.com</uname> <fname>Nancy Fox</fname> </user> </group> </buddylist>
Does it seem completely ridiculous to anyone else that you can create contacts, but not with phone numbers? What's the point of contacts with no phone numbers?
Agreed. All of our users use Jabber to 'click-to-call' their contacts via CTI functionality. Works great for company contacts which are in AD/LDAP. We had hoped to be able to import standard contact listsfor various groups via XML for external (non-company) contacts, but the import is worthless without the ability to import phone numbers for those contacts. Referencing Outlook contacts is a clunky process by user and pretty buggy as well.
