I want to put both the cell number and phone number in the corporate directory on my 7960 phone. We are using Call Manager 4.0, is this possible.
I don't think it's possible (not sure though).
I've used our Active Directory (AD) for this option.
Look into the LDAPSearch example (SDK-Kit) for more info on how to do this.
I think you get alot information from this book:
Developing Cisco IP Phone Services
Or ask someone to build one for you ;)
Hoped i gave you some thoughts on how to accomplish your target :)

We are using CM 3.3 and we have done this by adding a second user in the user section. We have a "Dave" with the internal extension number and also a "Dave Mobile" with a translation pattern set up to dial the Mobile/cell number
It works well... We have done this for all out staff
This is what we have done....
In Call Manager Administration, setup a translation pattern (as a speed dial to your Cell phone number) ie translation pattern 1111 translates to your sell number. Test and ensure this is working by Dialing 1111 from an IP phone.
Then go to User menu, Select new user, enter your name, and ensure in the first name field or the last name field you add something to allow users accessing the corporate directory to distinguish your extension number from your Cell number.
Then in the user ID and the telephone number fields add the translation pattern you setup (1111), click insert and then this entry should appear in the corporate directory on your IP phones.
So when some searches your name they find two entries, your normal extension number and an entry for your cell number
I believe that the LDAPSearch feature is probably the best way to go too... You might need to rewrite it as a
A good place to start would be the MultiDirectory demo application which makes use of the LDAPSearch.
If you need more information, let me know... I'm in the middle of trying some things with this myself...
I am working with this phone and I find that I cannot add a softkey to a CiscoIPPhoneMenu without the phone returning an XML parse error. Here's the code:
Again, the phone returns an XML Parse error, but looking at it in a browser, it's fine. (Without the SoftKeyItem, the page is OK) I have never been able to define my own softkeys on this phone. What am I doing wrong?
You probably missed my post made about two weeks ago about just that issue.. don't use any standard XML tags with IP phones.. it works for some and completely messes up others.
Thanks for your quick response. I removed that line and I still get an XML Parse error when I try to create a SoftKey. Do you have any more ideas for me? Thanks.

Interestingly enough, it works on the 7905, and fails on my 7970. Even simple manual menuitems (see the other thread on top of the list) create problems, but my own apps, with my own CiscoIPPhone library has no problems whatsoever. I can't even push to my 7960s anymore so I guess another clusterwide reboot is in order.
There is at least one real problem with your XML though: You should get rid of the
When in doubt, verify your XML against the schema from the SDK.. that's the first line of defense against errors. It seems right now the 7905 load is somewhat less picky but you shouldn't take that as a reference.. it's a known problem that different loads and phone types act differently. So when in doubt, verify against the schema, and if it doesn't hold up, open a case.
