CiscoIPPhone.xsd - Adding an element to CiscoIPPhoneDirectoryEntry

Can someone school me up on where the CiscoIPPhone.xsd schema file is located and how it is accessed by the phones? I would like to add an element to the CiscoIPPhoneDirectoryEntryType object.

I have a copy of the schema from the SDK, though I don't know where I need to place it on CCM, or if it gets integrated into the phone loads somehow ... Here's what I'm looking to add:

<xsd:element name="Department" nillable="true">


<xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">

<xsd:maxLength value="32"/>

<xsd:minLength value="0"/>




I would like to have "Department" as an available search criteria / display value ehwn users search the driectory ... especially Cisco was nice enough to add that as one of the items you can configure from within the CCM Global Directory, though without modifying the schema, there's no way for the phone to display it ... ;(

This will make a lot of people happy when I get it to work, which will make Joe happy as well. Less time coding & more time surfing makes Joe a happy engineer. Aloha & Mahalo!
