Cisco Jabber 12.6 - disable proximity

We noticed that in the new Jabber 12.6.x the proximity button and feature is enabled by default.
Apparently is not possible to disable it in the installation process, nor in CUCM profile, but only via jabber-config.xml  (<EnableProximity>false</EnableProximity>).

 

Is this correct?

What about modifying the global XML (adding the new parameter) with different Jabber versions and not only 12.6? Is the parameter simply ignored by previous version.

 

thanks in advance

Re: Cisco Jabber 12.6 - disable proximity

Yes, jabber-config.xml parameters will simply be ignored by older client versions that did not support them.

 

Generally speaking, the MSI installation flags are the least desirable place to configure a parameter since it cannot be changed without uninstall/reinstall per-machine. Use the Service Profile in CUCM (and other applicable settings such as the Model-Specific section at the bottom of Phone Configuration / Common Phone Profile / Enterprise Phone Configuration) when possible. Anything else goes in jabber-config.xml.

Hi Jonathan,

thanks a lot for your answer.

Any plan to add the control over this feature in CUCM service profile instead of XML?

Re: Cisco Jabber 12.6 - disable proximity

Hello Jonathan,

we are using the latest CUCM version 12.5.1, unfortunately I can't find the parameter EnableProximity here under the Jabber Config GUI. In the parameters-reference-guide-cisco-jabber document it is written that this option can be found under options, neither there or under the other section it can be found. Can I only set it via Jabber-config.xml?

Thanks in advance

That can only be configured in the .xml, simply use the add custom option.

What MSI installation flags are used to disable proximity?

Re: Cisco Jabber 12.6 - disable proximity

None. You must use the jabber-config.xml file. The MSI install flags should almost never be used since you can't change the answer later. Always leverage settings in the Service Profile or jabber-config.xml file where possible.
