A Feature Profile (FP) is an administrator-defined set of subscriber features with associated feature data that can be assigned to multiple subscribers. By creating and configuring FPs, the basic feature environment for certain user groups can be maintained at a central place, which dramatically simplifies subscriber feature administration.
FPs can be created at two different levels:
FPs created at the switch level can be assigned to all subscribers on the related switch.
Business Group level
FPs created within a specific BG (Business Group) can only be assigned to the subscribers of this BG.
Multiple Feature Profiles for every Switch and its BGs can be created.
Feature Profile Management
During FP management features can be added/deleted to/from the FP, or feature attributes can be modified. The following actions are possible for a feature within a feature profile:
Add this feature to the feature profile or replace any existing definition of the feature data that the feature profile might have.
Modify the feature data that the feature profile has. The feature must already exist at the Feature Profile Level.
If the Reset Subscriber Lines is used, the modifications are applied to all subscribers that inherit the related feature from this feature profile.
Remove the feature from the Feature Profile
The status of a feature in a Feature Profile can be one of the following:
The feature is not assigned to the profile.
Note that in Telephony Control Server Assistant the Not Assigned state is represented as the absence of the feature in the list of assigned features.
The feature is assigned to the profile.
Modifying a feature's data at the Feature Profile doesn't change the feature's assignment state at the Feature Profile.
Default Feature Profile
In every BG a single BG-level FP can be marked as Default Feature Profile
, i.e. the FP that shall will be automatically assigned to newly created subscribers unless the administrator explicitely deselects it or selects a different one.
When a new BG is created via the Quick Add Business Group
task, a basic BG-level FP named FP_<BG name>
is automatically created and marked as Default FP.
System Specific Information
Theoretically, Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony supports up to 100,000 Feature Profiles. In practice, however, the actual number of Feature Profiles in use is generally much lower.
