How to configure dial plan mapping for Cisco Jabber?

I deploy Cisco Jabber of iPhone for users. 

Users require to dial a telephone number which is in iPhone contact list with Cisco Jabber directly. 

 we assume all telephone number in iPhone contact list is E164 format as like +852XXXXXXXXXX, so I have to manipulate the number to conform to CUCM router list.  

It seem that Application dial rule and  Directory lookup dial rules can manipulate the number, but I don't know how to configure Application dial rule and  Directory lookup dial rules?

Could you provide a guide ? Thanks!

Re: How to configure dial plan mapping for Cisco Jabber?

To add to Jamies suggestion, I would strongly suggest being very careful when it comes to application dial rules and directory lookup rules.

 

Yes they work, but they are global.  I Always guide users to make sure they store their numbers in E.164 format (E.g +44203 instead of 0203)

That way, if your CUCM can handle E.164 (Which it should be able to) Then you don't need to do anything.

 

The justification I give for this is that if you don't store your numbers in E.164 format, they often won't work when you travel abroad - even when dialled from your mobile.  If your users get into the habit of storing everything in E.164 everywhere (outlook, mobile etc) it should work everywhere.

 

Manipulating numbers to account for users errors is not a good strategy in my opinion, since we cannot account for every user scenario.

I will think your suggestion carefully , but I have to satisfy the requirement.

Thats your decision. But if the requirement is to configure the phone system to automatically correct users dialling numbers incorrectly, then I'd strongly suggest you push back on that :)
