Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0 -- Restricting the Use of Vanity Meeting IDs
Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0
Up one level: Configuration
By default, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace allows the meeting scheduler to request a specific meeting ID, such as one that is easy to remember (12345) or one that spells a word (24726 or CISCO). If, however, an uninvited person knows one of the phone numbers for your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system, that person can easily guess a popular meeting ID and join a meeting that he is not authorized to attend.
You can prevent unauthorized meeting attendance by disabling the ability to request a vanity meeting ID when scheduling a meeting. Instead, a unique, randomly generated ID is assigned to every scheduled meeting. Users cannot change the assigned meeting IDs.
- Log in to the Administration Center.
- Click System Configuration > Meeting Configuration.
- Set the Allow vanity meeting IDs field to No.
- Click Save.
What To Do Next
You can further prevent unauthorized meeting attendance by:
- Requiring meeting passwords -- See Configuring Requirements for Meeting Passwords.
- Restricting scheduled meeting attendance to profiled users -- See Restricting Access to Scheduled Meetings.
