Hello Cisco Community,
We have just implemented Verba call recording to our infrastructure and everything is working great, however we need to implement a recording at the beginning as a warning that users are being recorded.
We currently have the recording on 2 extensions only, what is the best way to implement a recording at the beginning when someone calls the extension. Am I able to record the warning and save it as a .wav and somehow have it play before it transfer the call to the extension?
Please keep in mind I am fairly new to Unity and CM.
Thanks in advance!!
one of the options is to send the call to the Cisco Unity Connection call handler and play the DPA messages from unity connection and then route to person extension.
1. Reconfigure the DID to send the call to the Unity connection call handler.
2. configure the call handler to play a DPA greeting, and send it to recording enabled extension post greeting.
There are many docs available on Cisco.com as well as the other Cisco UC related website. you can also refer to the maintenance and operation guide for Cisco unity connection respective releases.

I think it could be possible from your recording server. recheck your product configurations guide
I never deployed it, but the recording server which we proposed had this option.
You should check your recording documentation and see if it supports out of the box what you are asking. While Unity is fine if you're only recording 1 or 2 lines, scaling it out it doesn't really work as you'll have multiple handlers playing the same message to redirect the call where it needs to go as each handler can only forwarded off to a single number.
I'd suggest looking at the TCL on the CUBE on the inbound call leg. Leveraging early media (183) you can pass through a prompt to the caller before the call reaches CUCM. Then it's just a case of placing the e164 pattern maps into the inbound dial-peer so that those specific numbers play the IVR and then are sent through to the CUCM. I've given the guides below have a look through.
