Enterprise Group configuration for jabber



With Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 11.0, Cisco Jabber users can search for groups in Microsoft Active Directory and add them to their contact lists. If a group that is already added to the contact list is updated, the contact list is automatically updated.This document will explain the procedure to achive the same.


1.Enable enterprise group configuration in CUCM enetrprise parameter:

Navigate to CUCM admin page >> System >> Enterprise parameter >> Choose CUCM publisher >> Search for the parameter "Directory Group Operations on IM and Presence" >> Enable it

2.Create Distribution Group in LDAP

3.Make sure the required users are added to the group

4. Configure CUCM to sync both users and Groups. Navigate to CUCM admin page >> System >> LDAP >> LDAP Directory and configure for Users and Groups. Perform sync once after configuring

5. Make sure the Groups are synced. Navigate to User Management >> User Settings >> User Group

6. Login to jabber and search for directory Group : File >> New >> Directory Group >> Saerch for the group and add


Can see the Group is added and users who are part of groups are also added

What version of Jabber do you have?

I am trying with 11.7 11.5.2 and 10.6 with no success.

Is it something on the jabber-config.xml???

It doesn't make any sense to me.

Step 1 From Cisco Unified CM Administration, choose System > Enterprise Parameters. The Enterprise Parameters Configuration window appears.

Step 2 In the User Management Parameters section, from the Directory Group Operations on Cisco IM and Presence drop-down list, select Enabled .

and in cucm 10.5 this feature not available? users can't search in AD groups?


Is it possible to push al the directory groups to all users?
At the moment people have to manually add all the groups when they join the company. We are looking for a solution that all employees have all the groups added without having to do it manually.


This works in CUCM 11.5 with email enabled security groups. Just got it to work earlier tonight after upgrading to 11.5 last week. Works in Jabber MRA as well.
