Some deployments of Cisco Jabber include an allow list that adds exceptions to the block list. You can enter specific contacts or domains in your allow list to ensure those contacts can view your availability status and send you messages.


Note


Cisco Jabber uses your contact list as an allow list. You do not need to add contacts in your contact list to your allow list.


The following are examples of how the allow list works:
Example 1: Allow specific contacts inside your organization
  1. You set your basic privacy settings to block everyone inside your company.

     

  2. You then add specific IM addresses for contacts inside your company to your allow list.

     

Cisco Jabber blocks all contacts inside your company, except for those specific people in your allow list.
Example 2: Allow specific domains
  1. You set your basic privacy settings to block everyone outside your company.

     

  2. You then add a specific domain, such as cisco.com, to your allow list.

     

Cisco Jabber blocks everyone outside your company, except for people who have IM accounts at cisco.com.
Example 3: Allow specific contacts from blocked domains
  1. You add a specific domain, such as cisco.com, to your block list.

     

  2. You then add an IM address, such as anitaperez@cisco.com, to your allow list.

     

Cisco Jabber blocks all people who have IM accounts at cisco.com, except for anitaperez@cisco.com.

       
1    From the hub window, open the Settings menu, and go to Options.
  

The Options window opens.

  
2    Select the Privacy tab and then select Advanced.
3    Enter specific contact addresses or domains in the Allow list.
4    Select Apply and then OK.
