Ask questions from Monday, April 13th, 2015 to Friday, April 24th, 2015

Cisco Jabber has the capability to obtain the directory information directly from either LDAP or CUCM server- using EDI, BDI or UDS. Enhanced Directory Integration (EDI) is an LDAP-based contact source for Cisco Jabber for Windows clients. Basic Directory Integration (BDI) is an LDAP-based contact source for non-Windows Jabber clients (MAC and Mobile).Cisco Unified Communications Manager UDS is a Cisco Unified Communications Manager contact source and is available as a contact source for all Cisco Jabber clients. UDS is the contact source used for Expressway Mobile and Remote Access.

The directory parameters can be configured using jabber-config.xml file or the service profile. Alternatively, Cisco Jabber for Windows can also automatically discover and connect to the directory server if the workstation on which you install Cisco Jabber is on the Microsoft Windows Active Directory domain.

Furthermore, Cisco Jabber can also search for contacts from the Personal Address book in Microsoft Outlook client using MAPI when both the clients co-exist in a PC.

This session aims in helping customers with the design, configuration and troubleshooting of Cisco Jabber Directory Integration.
