    I would like to provide more information to my users when they go to Directories --> Corporate Directory on their 7945 phones.  For example I would like to provide cell phone numbers for other users contained within Active Directory.  Upon further invesitigation I found that you are limited to just a few attributes that CUCM will pull from AD via LDAP.
     
    I was told by my SE that I should go into Enterprise Parameters --> URL directories and redirect the phones to a web server with a custom XML script that would pull the desired data from AD.  I am by no means an XML expert and I am wondering if anybody else has done this or anything similiar.
     
    I am running 6.1.2 and AD on Server 2003
     
    Thank you,
    Mike.

    The IP Phone Services Tech Center will be the place to explore the possibilities here.  What you describe is certainly possible, though it requires some web development work:  http://developer.cisco.com/web/ipps/home
     
    Be sure and explore the downloadable SDK which has several sample apps along the lines of what you describe.
     
    Also you may want to consider the CUAE platform, which makes slapping together something like this pretty easy using a GUI development environment: http://developer.cisco.com/web/cuae/home

    Thanks for the reply David.  It looks I've got some studying to do.
