Configuration for Avaya Aura Call Center Elite

To set up Avaya Aura Call Center Elite monitoring, the same procedures are used as for setting up a standard Avaya Aura Communication Manager PBX. For configuration instructions please see: Configuration for Avaya Aura Communication Manager

Once the Avaya Aura Communication Manager PBX is setup, then the following configuration steps for CCE can be carried out:

Avaya CDR Configuration to Link Agents and VDNs with Calls

If it is required to link VDNs and Agents to calls, as described in the ' Avaya Agents Display' and ' VDNs & Vectors - Avaya Aura Call Center Elite' topics, then a configuration change is required. In unified communications environments where Avaya Communication Managers are deployed, Collaborate will obtain call information by using Avaya CDR data. To enable the linking of Agents and VDNs to calls, the following procedure will need to be carried out to set up the necessary CDR data collection

Open a SAT session and log on with administrative rights.

Execute the command: change system-parameters cdr

The CDR SYSTEM PARAMETERS form will be displayed.

If a custom CDR format is already being used which is different from the above format please contact IR Technical Support. Most likely it will be necessary to adjust the CDR format to comply with the format required for Collaborate.

Ensure that the 'dialed-num' and 'vdn' settings are configured correctly and then press [Esc + e] to save the settings.

When the custom CDR format as specified above is configured, it will also be necessary to edit the irAVAYA_PBX.ini file which is located in the following folder path:

Prognosis\Server\Configuration

To do this, change the line;

Solution=IPTM\Avaya\avaya-cdr.xml

to

Solution=IPTM\Avaya\avaya-cdr-custom-mmdd.xml

If a different custom CDR format is configured then a new customized version of the avaya-cdr.xml file will be required.

To obtain a new version of the avaya-cdr.xml file please contact IR Technical Support. The content will depend on the exact format of the customized CDR.

SAT Commands

To obtain the list of Agents, Collaborate makes use of the 'list agent-loginID' SAT command. The interval at which this SAT command is run depends upon the SAT Performance Profile level that has been set. For a 'High' level profile the command will run every 7 minutes, for all other profiles (i.e. Medium, Low and Min) the interval is 25 minutes. The default level for Avaya PBX/Avaya Elite is 'Medium.

If it is required to change the profile level, please refer to the SAT Performance Profiles.

The 'list agent-loginID' SAT command is enabled by default. However, if it is not desired to run this command, it can be disabled through the iravaya_pbx.ini file which is located in the following folder path:

Prognosis\Server\Configuration

To disable the command, go to the [SAT] section of the iravaya_pbx.ini file and change the 'AgentSatCommandEnabled' option to 'false'. This will disable the command and Agent list data will no longer be available.
