We've Added a New Feature to Variphy's Tools & Analytics for Cisco UC in Version 10.0: DN Management
So you have a new user joining your company - for which you need to provision in your Cisco UC system.
What directory number should you assign to him/her? Is that managed via a spreadsheet and if so, is that spreadsheet up to date?
Based upon lots of feedback from Variphy's user and partner base, one of the common limitations with CUCM is that it's difficult for an administrator to easily identify that a directory number (such as "10111") is available for assignment, meaning it doesn't yet exist .
Because it doesn't exist in CUCM, this directory number (and any others which don't exist) will simply not appear in any CUCM report or search, leaving the administrator to have to somehow identify the "gaps" to reveal which numbers are available.
Since Directory Number 10111 doesn't appear in the following sample screenshot below, it's available but doesn't that seem too cumbersome to identify?
With Variphy Insight, you can now quickly and visually identify the 1st and/or all directory numbers which are available in a range of DNs, as well as which are assigned and active versus those which are unassigned - meaning they exist in CUCM but are not active or assigned to a device.
Variphy Insight will always show the current information directly from CUCM, so there's no worries about spreadsheets becoming out of date or shared ones getting overwritten by multiple administrators.
Produce a full report in PDF or XLSX for entire DN range to facilitate a dial plan cleanup project:
