Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express End-User GUI Access

CUCM Express End-User Interfaces

Now we’re going to look at the Communications Manager Express end-user interface. Little bit different access, because we’re not necessarily pointing to a server, although the Communications Manager Express is a application running on a hard drive in our routers, it’s really the router IP address and the CCME to access this and it is not HTTPS. So we say HTTP and then the router IP address and then ccme, that’s how the user can gain access to the Communications Manager Express end-user interface (http://node-ip/ccme). And of course we are going to have to set up our end-user credentials that are previously defined in the Command-Line Interface or in the GUI and now we then allow them access to the system.

End-User Web Interface

Now our end users within the Communications Manager Express can change their ring settings, manage their speed dials and fast dials, and change their passwords. So, our speed-dial configuration is going to depend on the phone type. The number of configured lines, in other words on the 7940 versus a 7960 (there’s a difference between 2 and 6 buttons on the phone), of course, they’re only going to be able to manage the number of buttons that they have.

Enable Web Access for End Users

We can enable or configure web access for end users, either via the GUI in Communications Manager Express or the Command Line. From the GUI, we’ll choose Configure Phone, pick which phone it is and then add the login account information. If it is out of the Command Line, we get into our global configuration mode and then we’ll go ahead and configure a user name and a password. In order to do this, it is config t and then we enter the ephone configuration for the end user and then we put in the username command and that will allow us to then set the user name in the end login credentials.
