CDI/EDI

I was exploring directory integration for jabber.

 

In UC service, I can see Directory type as Directory and Enchanced Directory.

I understand that Enhanced Directory is EDI and what about only Directory ? Is it CDI or BDI ?

EDI and BDI are now CDI, there are no longer separate options.

CDI or UDS, those are the current options.

Contact Source Options for Cisco Directory Integration

In on-premises deployments, the client requires one of the following contact sources to resolve directory look ups for user information:

  • Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)—If you have a corporate directory, you can use the following LDAP-based contact source options to configure your directory as the contact source:

    • Cisco Directory Integration (CDI)—Use this contact source option to deploy all clients.

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager User Data Service (UDS)—If you do not have a corporate directory or if your deployment includes users connecting with Expressway Mobile and Remote Access, you can use this option.
