Shared Cisco Contact Directory

Cisco SPA series handsets can utilise a shared XML phone number directory.

 

The following example outlines the format for entries in the XML file - each entry needs to begin with <DirectoryEntry> and end with </DirectoryEntry>

... 

    <CiscoIPPhoneDirectory>
    <Title>Cisco Coporate Directory</Title>
    <Prompt>Select the User</Prompt>
    <DirectoryEntry>
    <Name>Person</Name>
    <Telephone>0412345678</Telephone>
    </DirectoryEntry>
    <DirectoryEntry>
    <Name>Office</Name>
    <Telephone>0712345678</Telephone>
    </DirectoryEntry>
    <DirectoryEntry>
    <Name>Reception</Name>
    <Telephone>101</Telephone>
    </DirectoryEntry>
    </CiscoIPPhoneDirectory>

...

Once you've completed your directory, upload it to http://SERVER/phonebook/pbdir.xml

 

Finally, on the Cisco handset, login to the web interface and go to the phone tab. In the XML Directory Service URL, enter the location from above (http://SERVER/phonebook/pbdir.xml)
