Cisco UCCE Integration


The Verba Recording System supports direct Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE) integration as part of the Verba Cisco JTAPI ServiceUsing this integration the recording system provides access to Cisco UCCE specific call data. 

Multiple new possibilities are available in your Verba Recording System based on the collection of UCCE information: 

  • dialed number searches - search for calls that came through a specific phone number
  • queue-based QM projects - add all calls coming from a queue to a certain quality management project
  • identifying calls of an agent - focus on the calls of a certain agent (no matter where they sit in the contact center)
  • search in IVR input - search for IVR collected information, like customer IDs and zip codes
  • more CDR information - get more insight into the history of your recorded calls

The UCCE integration is only available when using Cisco network-based recording.

Configuring the Cisco Central Recording Service for UCCE integration

The Cisco UCCE integration is built-in into your standard Verba Recording System solution.

Step 1 - The metadata is stored in a pre-configured metadata template. To use the built-in Cisco UCCE template, associate it with the desired Verba user group (the group where your UCCE agents and supervisors are) via the following web interface configuration page: Users / Groups / <select a group> / Metadata Template Association

In order to read the data of custom fields from UCCE, in the UCCE Metadata Template set the Property Id of Call Variable X to the identifier of the custom field (as shown in UCCE)

Step 2 - On the Verba web interface, navigate to System / Servers, select the Recording Server where the Verba Cisco JTAPI Service is enabled.

Step 3 - Click on the Change Configuration Settings tab and expand the Cisco JTAPI Configuration / Cisco UCCE Integration section.

Step 4 - Fill out the configuration fields according to the table below.

Parameter nameDescription
Cisco UCCE PG CTI Server
IP(s) and port(s)

After clicking on the gear icon at the end of the line, the following fields can be configured:

  • Master IP Address
  • Master Port
  • Slave IP Address
  • Slave Port
CTI Server Protocol Version

Using a higher protocol version than the highest supported by the CTI Server will cause communication failures.
However, using a lower version than the highest supported, the CTI Server has to reencode every message. 
Protocol versions based on UCCE version:

UCCE VersionProtocol Version
UCCE Version 10.018-19
UCCE Version 9.016-17
UCCE Version 8.515
UCCE Version 8.014
ICM Version 7.010-13
ICM Version 5.09
ICM Version 4.68
ICM Version 4.57
ICM Version 4.16
ICM Version 4.05
Peripheral IDIf only a specific Peripheral should be monitored, then set this setting to that Peripheral ID. 
Otherwise, leave this setting on 999999999, and the system will monitor every Peripheral. 

Step 5 - Click on the  icon to save your settings.

Step 6 - The system will notify you that the changes need to be applied to the server by restarting the involved services or rereading the new configuration. Execute the required tasks.

After executing the steps above, UCCE related metadata will be collected for all new calls. Check Call Details.

You can show Cisco UCCE metadata as columns in your search results by modifying the Conversation list layout.
