Table: Field Reference: Usage Configuration Page
Field Description
Usage Configuration

Attendant phone

Phone number that callers are routed to if they do not press a number at a voice prompt or press 0 for operator assistance. (*1)

Tip: Make sure that the people at this phone number are available and trained to provide assistance for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.


Restriction: The + character is allowed only as the first character in the field.

24-hour time

Whether to show meeting times by a 24-hour clock.


Default: No

Dial attendant on timeout

Whether callers are transferred to the attendant in these situations:

  • Caller dials 0 for operator assistance.
  • Caller does not enter a number at a voice prompt.


Default: No

Language 1


Language 2


Language 3


Language 4

Enabled languages. The Language 1 field sets the default system-wide language.

  • If the languages license is installed, the number of active language fields (up to four fields) is determined by the number of installed languages.
  • If the languages license is not installed, only the Language 1 field appears.


Restriction: You must restart (*2) the system to enable or disable a language. You do not need to restart the system to switch the order in which the languages appear in these fields.

Caution! A system restart terminates all existing call connections. Proceed only during a scheduled maintenance period or during a period of extremely low usage.


Default: English (US)

Guests can lock and record meetings

If set to No, guest users cannot lock or record meetings.


If set to Yes:

  • Guests can lock meetings.
  • If the Can record meetings field in the preconfigured Guest Profile is also set to Yes, guests can use the TUI (*7)to start and stop the meeting recording. Guests cannot start and stop recordings from the Cisco WebEx web meeting room because only meeting hosts can do so.


Restriction: This field is not available when a Cisco WebEx site is configured.

Route calls to meeting ID that matches DID

Whether to enable the DID (*3) feature, which routes incoming calls directly to meetings based on DID and DNIS (*4). When the DID feature is enabled, the caller is routed to the meeting ID that is equal to the DID phone number.


See the Configuring Direct Inward Dial for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace module.

Security

Minimum profile PIN length

Number of numeric characters required in the Profile PIN for each user.


Restriction: This field does not apply to Directory Service users. See the Configuring Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service module.


Default: 5

Change profile PIN (days)

Frequency, in days, at which the Profile PIN must be changed in each user profile.


A value of 0 means that the Profile PIN never needs to change.


Restriction: This field does not apply to Directory Service users. See the Configuring Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service module.


Default: 90

Minimum user password length

Number of alphanumeric characters required in the User password for each user.


Restriction: This field does not apply to Directory Service users. See the Configuring Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service module.


Default: 5

Change user password (days)

Frequency, in days, at which the User password must be changed in each user profile.


A value of 0 means that the User password never expires.


Restriction: This field does not apply to Directory Service users. See the Configuring Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service module.


Default: 90

Maximum profile sign-in attempts

Number of times that a user may try to:

  • Sign in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace before the user profile is locked.
  • Enter a meeting password before the call is transferred to the attendant. If no attendant is available, then the call is disconnected.
  • Enter a Profile PIN to start a reservationless meeting from the TUI before the user profile is locked.


A value of 0 means that there is no limit to the number of attempts.


Before reaching the maximum number of attempts, the user can restart the counter by taking one of these actions:

  • Close the browser and open a new one.
  • End the call to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace and begin a new call.


Restriction: Preconfigured user profiles cannot be locked.


Default: 3

User locked interval

The amount of time for which a user profile stays locked.


A value of 0 means the user profile stays locked until the System administrator unlocks it.


Default: 0

New users must change passwords on first sign-in

This setting determines the defaults for Force user password change at next sign-in and for Force PIN change at next sign-in on the Add User Profile Page.


Restriction: If you change this setting, it does not affect existing user profiles.


This means that you can create a user John with Force user password change at next sign-in set to No. Before John tries to sign in for the first time, you change New users must change passwords on first sign-in to Yes, the system does not force John to change his password because this setting does not affect existing user profiles.


By contrast, you can create a user John with the Force user password change at next sign-in field set to Yes. Before John tries to sign in for the first time, you change New users must change passwords on first sign-in to No, the system forces John to change his password on first sign in even though the force password field is set to No.


Changing the value of New users must change passwords on first sign-in does not affect already created users. It does not matter if this field is Yes or No; it only matters what is set in the user profile (Force user password change at next sign-in and Force PIN change at next sign-in fields).


Default: No

Password Complexity Checks

Password contains characters from at least three classes

Whether each new or modified User password must contain characters from at least three of these character classes:

  • Lowercase letters
  • Uppercase letters
  • Digits
  • Special characters


Example: "basic" is not an acceptable password because there are characters only from one class of characters.


Default: No

No character in the new password repeated more than three times

Whether each new or modified User password is restricted from containing a character that is repeated more than three times consecutively.


Unacceptable password: aaaaaa


Acceptable password: aAaAaA (uppercase and lowercase attributes make a character unique).


Default: No

Password does not repeat or reverse the user ID

Whether each new or modified User password is restricted from being a repeat, the reverse of, or a variation of the capitalization (such as "USERname") of the User ID.


Unacceptable passwords: "username," "USERname," and "emanRESU"


Acceptable passwords: "username123" (the use of digits with the User ID is permitted).


Default: No

Password is not "cisco", "ocsic" or variation of these

Whether each new or modified User password is restricted from being any variant of "cisco" that was obtained by modifying the order of the characters or by changing the capitalization of any letters.


Unacceptable passwords: "cisco," "ocsic", and "CIsco"


Acceptable passwords: "cisco123" and "1cisco1" (the use of digits with "cisco" is permitted.)


Default: No

Footnotes
  • 1: The required format for phone numbers is determined by the call-control device for your IP telephony network. Therefore, enter phone numbers in the same format used to dial similar numbers from a phone on the same IP telephony network as Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. For example, if calls within your company are made by dialing the last four digits of a phone number, enter only the last four digits in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for internal phone numbers. If, however, you want Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to call a phone in a different area code, you might need to include 91 and the complete phone number including the area code.



  • 3: DID = Direct Inward Dial


  • 4: DNIS = Dialed Number Identification Service


  • 5: FQDN = fully-qualified domain name


  • 6: DMZ = demilitarized zone


  • 7: TUI = telephone user interface
