IBM Notes Contact Search

Users can now search for and add local IBM Notes contacts to their contact lists. Configure this feature with the new EnableLotusNotesContactResolution parameter. The default value for this parameter is false, meaning that users cannot search for or add local IBM Notes contacts. For more information about the EnableLotusNotesContactResolution parameter, see the Cisco Jabber 11.0 Parameters Reference Guide.

For this contact resolution to work properly, the Messaging ID field in IBM Notes must have a valid value.


Users cannot add contacts from both Microsoft Outlook and IBM Notes.

Jabber to Jabber Calling

This feature applies to cloud deployments only.

Jabber to Jabber calling provides basic voice and video calling between Cisco Jabber clients without Cisco Unified Communications Manager registration. Jabber to Jabber calling is supported only for users who authenticate to the Cisco WebEx Messenger service. Multiple Jabber to Jabber calls are not supported. Jabber to Jabber calling supports the following basic calling features:

  • Make a Jabber to Jabber call

  • Answer a Jabber to Jabber call

  • End a Jabber to Jabber call

  • Mute and unmute audio

  • Start and stop video

  • Open or close video self-view

  • Volume control


Before you enable the Jabber to Jabber calling feature, contact the Cisco Customer Support team or your Cisco Customer Success Manager for the following:

  • To request that your organization be added to the Cisco Common Identity server. This process to add users to the Common Identity server takes some time to complete and is necessary to access Jabber to Jabber calling capabilities.

  • For single sign-on (SSO) users, there are extra steps to perform to ensure that SSO setup is completed successfully for your organization.

For more information about Jabber to Jabber calling, see the Jabber to Jabber Call section of the Cisco Jabber 11.0 Deployment and Installation Guide.
