Online directories

You can set up up to ten corporate directories in LDAP format for the phone system and make one of them available to the registered handsets.
Use the handset settings to specify which keys are to call up the directory.



LDAP

If you wish to use a company LDAP directory, you must activate it on the Web configurator or via auto provisioning

→ Settings → Online → Corporate

The page lists the available LDAP directories.

Name

The name that you have defined for the directory is displayed, or the default name (LDAP 1 - LDAP 10). It can be edited.

Server urlIf the directory is configured, the server URL is displayed.



Access to the LDAP data server

Click onnext to the name of the LDAP directory you want to edit and the LDAP configuration page is opened.

The directory is provided via an LDAP server. You need the server address, the server port and the access data for the directory that you wish to use.



Parameter
Directory name

Enter a name in the field (max. 20 characters). This is the name under which the directory will be displayed on the handsets. Mark the Enable directory option, so that the directory is displayed on the telephones.

Server addressThe URL of the LDAP server.
Server portThe port the LDAP server expects database requests (Default: 389)
LDAP Search base (BaseDN)

The LDAP database is hierarchical in design. With the LDAP Search base (BaseDN) parameter, stipulate in which area the search should begin. Default: 0, the search starts at the upper area of the LDAP database.

Username

If you want to define access data that have to be used by all users:

Enter the access data for the LDAP directory in the Username and Password fields (max. 50 characters each).If you want to use individual access data for each handset, the access data is to be
set during the handset configuration.

Password
Secure LDAPNo security or SSL/TLS can be used.



Search in LDAP database

Filters

Using the filters, you can define criteria against which specific entries can be searched in the LDAP database. One filter consists of one or more search criteria. A search criterion contains the query for an LDAP attribute.

Example: sn=%
The sn attribute stands for surname. The percent sign (%) is a place holder for the user entry.

Rules for defining filters:

  • Multiple criteria can be connected using logical AND (&) and/or OR (|) operators.
  • The logical operators "&" and "|" are placed before the search criteria.
  • The search criterion must be placed in brackets and the whole expression must be terminated with a bracket again.
  • AND and OR operations can be combined.

Examples:

AND operation

(& (givenName=%) (mail=%))

Searches for entries in which the first name and mail address begin with the characters entered by the user.

OR operation

(| (displayName=%) (sn=%))

Searches for entries in which the display name or surname begins with the characters entered by the user.

Combined operation

(|(& (displayName=%) (mail=%))(& (sn=%) (mail=%)))

Searches for entries in which the display name and mail address or the surname and mail address begin with the characters entered by the user.

Additional filters

You can set two additional filters that will be offered to the user in order to specify the search more detailed.

  • In the additional name fields enter the attribute name.
  • In the corresponding value fields enter the attribute values.

Example:

Additional filter #1 nameCity
Additional filter #1 value(|(l=%))
Additional filter #2 nameStreet
Additional filter #2 value(|(street=%))

In addition to the fields defined in the Name filter parameter, the City and the Street fields are provided to the user. The user input for City is passed to the LDAP server in the I attribute, the user input for Street is passed in the street attribute.


Display format

In the Display format field you can stipulate how the search result is to be displayed on the handset.

  • Enter combinations of different name and number attributes and special characters. You can select common formats from the attributes that are listed in the Configuration of directory items section of the page.

For the attribute values to be shown for the required attribute, the attribute name must be preceded by a percent sign (%).

Example:

Data of an directory entry on the LDAP server:

displayName:Peter Black
givenName:Peter
sn:Black
telphoneNumber:0891234567890
mobile:012398765432

Attribute definition in the Web configurator:

Display format%sn, %givenName; %telephoneNumber/%mobile

The entry is shown on the handset as follows:

Black, Peter; 0891234567890/012398765432

Enable list mode

  • Define what should be initially shown, when the user opens the LDAP directory.
ActivatedA list of all entries of the LDAP directory is shown.
Not activated

An editor is opened first that allows the user to select a specific search area within the LDAP database and thereby to reduce the number of entries.



Filter
Name filter

The name filter decides which attribute is used for the search.


Example:

(displayName=%). The percent sign (%) is replaced by the name or part of the name entered by the user.
If a user enters the letter "A", for example, all entries in which the attribute displayName begins with "A" are searched for in the LDAP database. If the user then enters a "b", entries are searched in which the displayName begins with "Ab".

Number filter

The number filter stipulates the criteria for the automatic completion of telephone numbers.


Example:

(|(telephoneNumber=%)(mobile=%)). The percent sign (%) is then replaced by the part of the telephone number entered by the user.
When dialling, if a user enters the numbers "123", for example, all telephone numbers that begin with "123" are searched for in the LDAP database. The telephone number is completed=with the addition of information from the database.

Additional filter #1 nameEnter the name of an additional attribute that will be offered to the user in order to specify the search more detailed.
Additional filter #1 valueEnter the value for the attribute entered in the corresponding name field.
Additional filter #2 nameEnter the name of an additional attribute that will be offered to the user in order to specify the search more detailed.
Additional filter #2 valueEnter the value for the attribute entered in the corresponding name field.
Display format

In this field you can stipulate how the search result is to be displayed on the handset.

Enter combinations of different name and number attributes and special characters. You can select common formats from the attributes that are listed in the Configuration of directory items section of the page.

Max. number of search results

Enter the maximum number of search results that is to be returned by one search operation.
