UC Directory

UC Directory

This section describes how to configure a UC directory.


The directory supports two search methods, by name, by phone number and by department.

  • Search by name

    You can search for a contact by first name, last name, initials or abbreviations, or full name.

    For example, if a contact's name is Mary Wong, you can enter Mary, Wong, MW, or Mary Wrong for a search.

  • Search by phone number

    You can search for a contact by fixed-line, mobile, or other numbers.

  • Search by department

    You can search for a contact by department.


In the directory of HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960, a contact's profile picture displayed on the phone screen is the profile picture that the contact has customized on the soft client. However, if a contact does not customize his/her profile file but uses a profile picture provided by the soft client system, HUAWEI IP Phone 7920/7960 displays the phone's default profile picture for that contact on the phone screen, but not the one provided by the soft client system.

The contact information searched out from the directory can be managed on the BMU in a unified manner. For details, see the eSpace EC Product Documentation.

Configuration Methods

You can configure a UC directory using four different methods, as listed in Table 5-20.
