About Directory Service


Directory Service

Directory Service enables the system to populate and synchronize the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user database with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user database, which is typically integrated with an LDAP directory.


Note: For information about LDAP integration, see the Cisco Unified Communications Solution Reference Network Design (SRND) that applies to your version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_implementation_design_guides_list.html.


Specifically, Directory Service simplifies user profile administration in these ways:

  • Imports user profiles from Cisco Unified Communications Manager to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
  • Periodically updates the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace database with new or modified user entries in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.
  • Periodically checks the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database for inactive user entries, and deletes those user profiles from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace database.
  • Enables the system to use AXL authentication to authenticate Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service users against the external directory.
  • Supports fully encrypted LDAP integration when Secure LDAP (SLDAP) is enabled on Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the LDAP server.
Note: SSL for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server is not required to support Secure LDAP integration. You must, however, make sure that the configured AXL URL begins with "https" instead of "http."

Directory Service User Profile Configuration

During the initial Directory Service import of a user profile, the fields are configured as described in Table: User Profile Field Configuration Through Directory Service. If the corresponding Cisco Unified Communications Manager user profile is modified, the next Directory Service user profile update or full synchronization reconfigures the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile fields as specified in Table: User Profile Field Configuration Through Directory Service.


Note: To change any of the User Profile Fields in Table: User Profile Field Configuration Through Directory Service, you must configure the corresponding Source.

Guest Profile (first import only)

All user profile fields not mentioned previously in this table are initially populated with the values configured in the Guest Profile. You can then modify the individual user profile fields through the Administration Center. The values will not be overwritten by Directory Service user profile updates or full synchronizations.


Restrictions:

  • Remember that all user profile fields set to "Group default" inherit their value from the user group. If the Group name is modified through Directory Service filters or department changes, the user profile fields will be modified accordingly.
  • The following fields are not populated at all through Directory Service. Because Directory Service users are not authenticated by Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, these password fields are not imported and cannot be modified through Cisco Unified MeetingPlace:


Related Topics


Directory Service User Profile Deletion

The system periodically checks Cisco Unified Communications Manager for inactive user entries and deletes those user profiles from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. Specifically:

  • (For Cisco Unified Communications Manager with LDAP integration) When a user is deleted or disabled in the LDAP directory, the corresponding user entry in Cisco Unified Communications Manager becomes inactive.
Every 24 hours, Cisco Unified Communications Manager deletes user entries that have been inactive for more than 24 hours.
The system does not import or update user profiles using this 8-hour cycle. Instead, the importing and updating of user profiles occurs at the configured Update users interval.
  • According to the configured Update users interval, the system deletes the following user profiles from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace:
    • Users that are inactive in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
    • Directory Service users that are inactive in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
The system also imports and updates user profiles at the configured Update users interval.


Related Topics


Directory Service isLocalUser Setting In User Profiles

Each user profile in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace includes an isLocalUser setting, which determines:

  • Whether the user is authenticated externally through AXL authentication.
  • How the user profile settings are configured.


isLocalUserSetting Description

Yes

  • User is authenticated locally against the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace database.
  • User profile settings can be modified through Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user interfaces. (1)
  • Yes is the default value for user profiles that are manually imported or created through the Administration Center.

No



Footnote 1: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user interfaces include the web user portal on the Web Server, the Cisco WebEx integration end-user interface on the Application Server, and the Administration Center (both the User Profiles Page and the Import User Profiles Page).


Note: The isLocalUser setting cannot be configured through the Administration Center. If you manually set isLocalUser to No by adding or editing user profiles by import, note that the user profiles might be affected during the next Directory Service user update:

  • Any inactive user entries found in Cisco Unified Communications Manager will be deleted from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace database.
  • Some user profile fields will be overwritten by data from Cisco Unified Communications Manager and by Directory Service filters.


See the Directory Service User Profile Configuration.


Related Topics


External AXL Authentication for Directory Service Users

Directory Service users are those whose isLocalUser user profile field is set to No. Which external device authenticates a Directory Service user depends on:

  • Whether the user signs in over the phone or web.
  • Whether Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses LDAP directory integration.

Restrictions for Directory Service

  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 4.x and earlier releases are not supported.
  • (Cisco WebEx integration) Do not configure Directory Service if your system is or will be integrated with a Cisco WebEx site that is provisioned to not use Directory Integration.
    • iPhone and Blackberry smartphone Click-to-Join Webex Meetings are not currently supported with Directory Service and SSO to Cisco Webex.
    We do, however, recommend that you have your Cisco WebEx site provisioned for directory integration, which requires that you configure Directory Service.
  • The following restrictions apply to Directory Service users (users whose isLocalUser user profile field is set to No):
    • Because the user is not authenticated locally, the User ID, User password, and Profile PIN fields cannot be modified through Cisco Unified MeetingPlace by the user or by the system administrator.
    • The following password-related fields on the Usage Configuration Page do not apply to Directory Service users: Change profile PIN, Minimum user password length, Change user password (days, and Maximum profile sign-in attempts.
    • The user profile fields that are populated by Cisco Unified Communications Manager or through Directory Service filters can be modified through Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. Nevertheless, such modifications need to be manually updated in the LDAP directory, or in Cisco Unified Communications Manager when LDAP integration is not in use. Otherwise, those modifications will be lost during the next Directory Service user update.
    • The user is always authenticated externally. Therefore, if the connection fails between Cisco Unified MeetingPlace and the authenticating device, the user cannot sign in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
    If Cisco Unified Communications Manager fails, you can use a redundant Cisco Unified Communications Manager for authentication only. On the Directory Service Configuration Page, temporarily change the AXL URL field to specify the redundant Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and set the Update users interval field to the largest available value (Six months) to temporarily stop the database synchronization. When you select the largest available value, the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system ignores the Set Cisco Unified Communications Manager sync schedule to match update users interval setting even if you have it checked.
    When you switch the AXL URL field back to the primary Cisco Unified Communications Manager, make sure that you also set the Update users interval field to the previous value.
    The Update users interval field change is required because user updates, imports, and deletions are not supported from a redundant Cisco Unified Communications Manager, even if it is integrated with the same LDAP directory as the primary Cisco Unified Communications Manager. This is because Directory Service user updates are tied to a field that is unique to each Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.
    • The maximum lengths of some user profile fields are shorter in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace than in Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Make sure that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user field lengths do not exceed the maximum number of characters stated in Table: Maximum Length of Directory Service User Fields.

  • The following restrictions apply to user profile deletions, because to determine which user profiles to delete, the system periodically checks Cisco Unified Communications Manager for inactive user entries and deletes those user profiles from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
    • If you delete a user from Cisco Unified Communications Manager, the corresponding user profile remains in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. You must manually delete or disable the user profile in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
    • If you replace the LDAP directory with which Cisco Unified Communications Manager is integrated, then all Directory Service users from the first LDAP directory will remain in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace database until you manually delete them.
To avoid this database clutter, you can delete all entries in the database by entering the dbupdate command before you switch from one LDAP directory to another.


Caution! Deleting all database entries is an irreversible operation. Before you run the dbupdate command, consider backing up and archiving the database. See the Backing Up, Archiving, and Restoring Data on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server module.

What To Do Next

Proceed to the Configuring User Database Replication for Two Sites.


Configuring User Database Replication for Two Sites

Perform this task only if you have two Cisco Unified MeetingPlace sites. User database replication enables the two sites to have synchronized user profiles and user groups.


Note: In this document, a "site" refers to a complete Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system installation, which includes one active Application Server, one active Media Server, and one or more Web Servers.


Before You Begin


Restrictions

User database replication for two sites is not supported with Application Server Failover.


Procedure
  1. Sign in to the CLI of the Application Server in Site 2.
  2. Enter su to get root privileges.
  3. Enter the following command using the hostname of the Application Server in Site 1:
    mp_replication init -s 2 -n 1 -r hostname-site1 -m
  4. Sign in to the CLI of the Application Server in Site 1.
  5. Enter su to get root privileges.
  6. Enter the following commands using the hostname of the Application Server in the specified site:
    mp_replication init -s 1 -n 1 -r hostname-site2 -m
    mp_replication switchON -r hostname-site2 -S -F hostname-site1
    These commands initiate the initial synchronization between the two sites and establishes database replication between the two sites to keep the data synchronized.


Note: After setting up replication, if you stop the remote server, the changes made in the local server will be queued and be applied on the remote server when it comes up. If the remote server is down for a long time (for days or weeks, depending on the amount of the configuration changes), this queue can become full and cause a restart of the local server. To avoid this, you should disable replication if the remote server is going to be down for a long time.
