I'm playing around with Self Provisioning in 10.x to see how viable it will be for increasing efficiency phone roll-outs. So far it seems very capable and promising. However, one minor thing I am stuck on is the variables in the Universal Device Templates. I have it mostly figured out but there seems to be a big feature missing here.
These seem to be all the variables available:
This becomes a need as most of my new installations are going in as e.164 dial plans with a full +1NXXNXXXXXX number as the DN on the phone. However in this type of config, the phones are typically still line-text-label'd and dial-able internally to their specific location as the last 4 or 5 digits of their e.164 number through a location specific translation pattern.
Any idea on how to get around this or mask it?
Also interested in an answer - such a feature would be great when using shortened forms of first names on line text labels (such as "N. Marus 4545").
I change our dial plan to E.164 at the moment and have the same issue.
Is there a solution to display only the last 4 digits in the description instead of the complete number.
Think I just hit the same issue and found out that you can import varable length numbers in just putting a longer mask into the LDAP config. So, mask XXXXXXXXXX does import all the following numbers correctly and as soon as there is a + in front of the LDAP number, the \+ is also created successfully.
So, in just putting 18 times X into the mask you sould be able to import any number.
