Business Groups (BGs) provide a simple method for managing related subscribers. Subscribers (BG members) inherit the features of the Business Group, but the features can be assigned or restricted to individual subscribers.
Editing Subscribers via the Subscriber Dialog
Use the Business Group
dialog of the Telephony Control Server Assistant in order to view, modify or delete the subscriber.
The Subscribers dialog contains the following tabs:
General tab: contains the subscriber configuration data
Display tab: contains all display information of a subscriber
Routing tab: contains all routing information
Connection tab: contains all connection settins for a subscriber
Security tab: contains all possible security settings like SIP Authentication, Secure RTP and PIN Support.
Keyset tab: contains all parameters for provisioning multiple subscribers on a SIP phone.
Groups tab: contains Call Pick Up Group and Hunt Group Membership settings
Features tab: contains all the feature profile settings for a subscriber and all selectable Subscriber Features.
Applications tab: contains all possible application settings (Accounting, Lotus Sametime UC, DLS)
Editing Subscribers using the Quick Tasks
The fastest and most convenient way to create subscribers is to use the Quick Add Subscriber
The advantage of the Quick Add Subscriber feature is that all steps necessary to create a subscriber are grouped into one dialog, thus reducing the time of creating a subscriber to a minimum. The following areas are covered during execution of Quick Add Subscriber:
Business Group area - covering BG Name, Office Code, Subscriber Number
Subscriber area - covering Display Name, Routing Area
Configuration area - covering Keyset Operation, Class of Service, Feature Profile, Add Routing Entry (checkbox)
SIP Security area - covering Realm, User Name, Password
The feature supports both the creation of individual subscribers and mass provisioning for a given BG. To be able to do a first call, it is supposed that at least two numbers exist with two associated existing SIP phones so that the results can really be verified. After successful creation the plugged in phones are able to register.
The fastest and most convenient way to edit subscribers is to use the Quick Edit Subscriber
Quick Edit Subscriber allows the user to directly access the subscriber data, without having to navigate via the BG or PNP of the subscriber. This is especially helpful if the BG or the PNP of the subscriber is not known.
If there are already existing subscribers (BGLs) for the BG, the user may select one as a template. All entries from this subscriber (BGL) will be taken except for the varying entries i.e. number, name, authentication password.
The Subscriber templates are provided only for Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony User Management (no implementation for „Quick Add Subscriber“). The subscriber templates are system wide, i.e. not BG related.
