Unity Connection, Skip Pin when calling from cell phone

Hello,

My question is as follows : Is there a way to get Unity to skip the request for the PIN when the call is coming from a known extneral number ?

Basically, some of our users would like to access their voicemail remotely with easy. I have set it so when a user press * once they hear their greeting, it skips asking for the ID but asks for the PIN. We would like to just have it go straight to their voicemail. I have tried setting up an "alternative extension" with their cell phone number as the extension hoping that the system would recognize that and skip the request for the PIN but that doesn't seem to work

Has anyone had success with this ?

Thank you in advance

Alternate extension is the way to go, but ensure the digits received on Unity match exactly, use port monitor to observe the digits.

Hi,

To monitor ports use the tool at the link below:

http://www.ciscounitytools.com/Applications/CxN/PortStatusMonitorCUC7x/PortStatusMonitorCUC7x.html

You can monitor ports without the tool by using Telnet as described in Amy's great blog.

Hi,

Can you try dialling the Unity Connection pilot directly rather than calling a phone and having that forward to Unity. If the pilot is not diallable directly then try setting up a translation pattern to allow it.

Please post the tool output from that call.

Unity Connection, Skip Pin when calling from cell phone

From the document at the link below:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/8x/user_mac/guide/8xcucmac040.html

Allowing Users to Access Cisco Unity Connection by Phone Without Entering a PIN

By default, users are prompted for a PIN before they can sign in to  Cisco Unity Connection to check messages or change their personal  settings. As a convenience to users who often access Connection from a  mobile phone, home phone, or phone in a secured office within your  organization, you may consider specifying that Connection should not  prompt them to enter a PIN when they call Connection to access their  mailbox from their primary extension or alternate devices. (When they  call Connection from an unknown extension, Connection prompts them for  their PINs as usual.)

For security reasons, it may not be appropriate to allow users who work  in shared workspaces, cubicles, or other public areas in your  organization (such as a lobby or reception area) to access Connection by  phone without first entering a PIN.

Users who do not have to enter a PIN to sign in to Connection are still prompted to renew their phone PINs when they expire.

To Allow Users to Access Cisco Unity Connection By Phone Without Entering a PIN


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, find the user account or template that you want to edit.

Step 2 On the Edit User Basics or User Template Basics page (as applicable), check the Skip PIN When Calling From a Known Extension check box.

Step 3 Select Save.

Re:Unity Connection, Skip Pin when calling from cell phone

David,

Have you enabled skip pin when calling from a known extension?

If you have enabled this then when you dial from your desk phone you shouldn't be prompted for a pin. If that's done then check that the number shown in unity port monitoring for your mobile is the same as one configured for alternate extension
