How Does It Work?
UPLINX has extended the Provisioning System to allow for fully automated, rule-based provisioning for any end-user setups required by Cisco UC based on the user's setting in Microsoft Active Directory.
CUCM end-users, phones, CSF, Jabber, RDP, voicemail, logged out phones and device profiles can now be automatically provisioned (added, updated and deleted) based on defined enterprise rules when changes are detected in the user settings of Microsoft Active Directory. The Uplinx Change Tracker, part of the Auto-Provisioning System, detects added, updated or deleted users and assigns a site and telephony class to generate an auto provisioning job. The system supports multiple CUCM clusters, each with multiple sites and telephony administrators.
To facilitate an auto-provisioning job, a filter and rule module maps AD user attributes to telephony classes that contain Cisco specific settings. CUCM users, phones and device profiles are commissioned by using templates and telephony site specific definitions.
The system can be easily and rapidly customized via the web GUI to accommodate a wide range of configuration options.
Auto-Provisioning can also be initiated from any third party system which can utilize the UPLINX API for provisioning. Any third party system or requirement can now be integrated by utilizing the provided API code samples.
