What is a Contact Source?
A contact source is a collection of data for users. When users search for contacts or add contacts in the Cisco Jabber client, the contact information is read from a contact source.
Cisco Jabber retrieves the information from the contact source to populate contact lists, update contact cards in the client and other areas that display contact information. When the client receives any incoming communications, for example an instant message or a voice/video call, the contact source is used to resolve the contact information.
All Jabber clients support the LDAPv3 standard for directory integration. Any directory server that supports this standard is compatible with these clients.
You can use the following directory servers with Cisco Jabber:
Active Directory Domain Services for Windows Server 2012 R2
Active Directory Domain Services for Windows Server 2008 R2
Cisco Unified Communications Manager User Data Server (UDS)
Cisco Jabber supports UDS using the following Cisco Unified Communications Manager versions:
- Cisco Unified Communications Manager, version 9.1(2), with the following Cisco Options Package (COP) file: cmterm-cucm-uds-912-5.cop.sgn.
- Cisco Unified Communications Manager, version 10.0(1). No COP file is required.
