With the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing (CUVC) session type, you can integrate WebEx services with video conferencing sessions on the CUVC system. A meeting ID helps you accomplish this integration.

Before you can integrate WebEx services with the CUVC system, ensure that:

  • The CUVC option is available for your WebEx site.


  • You have enabled the CUVC option on the settings page.


  • Note: When the CUVC option is enabled, the CUVC Desktop replaces WebEx video during a session.


    You can configure the CUVC integration by using either a Dynamic CUVC meeting ID or a custom CUVC meeting ID.


1   Select Configuration > Common Site Settings > Session Types.
2   Locate the corresponding section for the primary session type, for which you want to create a custom session type.
3   Select the Add new custom session type for <session type> link.
4   On the Add Custom Session Type page, type a name for the session type in the Session Name box.
5   Scroll down to locate the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing (CUVC) option.

If you do not see the Cisco Unified Videoconferencing (CUVC) option, it may not be provisioned for your site.

6   Select Cisco Unified Videoconferencing (CUVC) and type the CUVC URL to enable the CUVC integration with the selected WebEx service. If you do not provide the CUVC URL, an error message appears when you try to add the session type.
7   (Optional) Configure the CUVC integration by providing either the Custom CUVC Meeting ID or the Dynamic CUVC Meeting ID.
  • To provide the Custom CUVC Meeting ID, select Allow entering a CUVC Meeting ID in the meeting scheduler.

  • To provide a Dynamic CUVC Meeting ID, do not select Allow entering a CUVC Meeting ID in the meeting scheduler. The WebEx Meeting number represents the CUVC Meeting ID when you schedule a meeting. You must also include a "service prefix" in the %MeetingID% variable for the CUVC URL. For example,<Service_Prefix>%MeetingID%.Allow entering a CUVC Meeting ID in the meeting scheduler is unchecked by default.

8   (Optional) Select Example URL to view the Help topic for the CUVC configuration.
9   Select Add to create the CUVC session type.
