Subscriber Features (a.k.a. services) in Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony represent end user telephony functionality - most of them related with call processing. Features can be implicitly (via an associated Feature Profile) or/and explicitly assigned to subscribers.
An example of a Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony Feature is Call Forwarding on No Reply.
Feature Data exist at Switch level, FP level and Subscriber Level.
Switch Wide feature data are stored in RTP parameters and affect all subscribers the same way. They are primarily used in order to meet needs of various customers as it regards to the detailed behaviour of a feature. They rarely change after initial set-up and only few of them are managed via Assistant. Example of Switch Wide service Data is Srx/Service/CFLoopMaxCount
Feature data stored at feature profile level follow the same structure as feature data that are stored at subscriber level. They are meant to control service behaviour of services at subscriber level. Example of a Service Data stored at profile/subscriber level is the Call Forward Destination Number.
When a feature is explicitely assigned to a profile or subscriber, the feature data are initialized to their (built-in) defaults.
When a feature is inherited by a subscriber, the feature data that are stored at the profile level are also inherited.
If a subscriber inherits a feature from its associated profile and either the feature data are changed at the associated profile or another profile is associated to the subscriber, the administrator decides, whether the subscriber's current feature data shall be preserved or replaced.
If the feature is explicitely Assigned to the subscriber, feature data are not passed from profile to subscriber.
System Specific Information
Only subscribers with the compatible attributes can subscribe to features. For example, Call Waiting is not applicable to SIP subscribers and Busy Line Verification is not applicable for Enterprise customers.Features that have attributes will also have a "Local" parameter. The Local parameters apply when a feature is inherited from a feature profile. They are used when displaying data to indicate the attributes that are overwritten locally (at the subscriber/BG level), and are used when updating data to reset the locally overwritten feature data to the values at the feature profile level. To avoid redundancy, this Local parameter is not listed for every feature.
Features are organized to the following categories:
Call Forwarding Features
Station Restriction Features
Tones, Ringing, Announcements
Intercom Call Features
Abbreviated Dialing Features
Call Screening Features
Silent Monitoring Features
Feature provisioning is blocked in standalone secondary mode. This is necessary because the database of the standalone secondary node is overwritten with the database of the primary node when the cluster is re-established. All provisioning requests from the CMP/Assistant (SOAP interface) or from the command line interface (CLI) are rejected.
Access codes are required to activate/deactivate operation of many Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony features. The required access codes are usually added during the initial installation of the system; however, any additional codes can be added at the Prefix Access Codes
Feature ProfilesParent topic: User Telephony
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.
Subscriber-level Feature Provisioning
Features may be applied directly to individual subscribers and those direct subscriptions override feature settings from the associated Feature Profile (if any). Overrides may be performed for an entire feature or for just a specific attribute of a feature.
