User Experience Impacts
No user experience changes were introduced in this release.

Control Hub

  • The device status search by location is not available.

    Workaround: Create tags for devices based on location. Then search by tag using the search bar on the Devices page. For more information about creating tags for devices, see Group Devices with Tags

  • Webex Calling service providers are no longer able to add or manage third-party devices that aren't on the Support Devices for Webex Calling list.

  • If you are adding a workspace and want to assign it to an ATA that already has the first line port assigned to another user or workspace, you will not be able to enter that ATA’s MAC address.

    Workaround: Add the new workspace, assign a phone (you can use a ficticious MAC address), and unassign the device from the workspace. Then select the Configure Port button to edit the ATA and add the workspace. A workspace assigned as an additional line port on an ATA will not display a device in the workspaces table. When viewing that workspace, the ATA will appear under Devices.

  • Devices that are assigned to a location other than the default country location don’t show their status on the Devices page.

  • You can't use Automatic License Assignment templates to assign Webex Calling licenses to users.

  • Only users assigned a Full Administrator role (partner or customer) can delete locations.

  • When you update a user's first name or last name in Control Hub, the update isn't made in the corresponding Caller ID fields. The workaround is to change the user name in CH then update Caller ID First Name and/or Last Name in CAP

    Workaround: Change the user's name in Control Hub and then update the Caller ID First Name and Last Name in the Calling Admin portal.

  • When you create a location and assign a number that's already in use, the location still gets created but shows as unconfigured in Control Hub.

  • You can start assigning basic licenses to users and places as part of a trial as soon as you complete the upgrade, however you can’t purchase these licenses until the SKUs are available from Cisco Commerce Workspace at the end of August.


    If you’re converting a trial to an Enterprise Agreement subscription, you must delete your Basic users from Control Hub and re-add them as Enterprise users. We're working on making this process easier for you by allowing you to upgrade your trial users from Basic to Enterprise before you convert a trial to a paid subscription.

  • You can only add one phone number to multiport devices such as IP phones, Analog Telephone Adapters (ATAs), or DECT phones using the Places entitlement. If you want to add more than one number to these devices, you can create a user in Control Hub without assigning a device or you can access the Calling Admin Portal from Control Hub, edit the user, and then assign the device.

  • You can enter special characters in the First Name and Last Name fields for the Caller ID feature in Control Hub but those characters are normalized and removed from the phone display screen when that user makes a call.

  • When you choose Webex Calling as the Calling Behavior for your organization or a specific user, external calls made from Webex version 4.x on mobile devices do not open the Webex Calling app, as expected.

  • Don’t use zero as the access code for Webex Calling. Zero overlaps with national and international dialing prefixes. Calls made with the Webex Calling application or Webex Calling devices will fail if zero is used as the access code.

Known Issues for Emergency Callback Number:

  • In Control Hub, you have the option to deactivate a user or workspace. However, the deactivation feature is not currently functioning. When deactivating a user or workspace, if that user or workspace is actively being used as the Emergency Callback Number (ECBN), a message appears warning the administrator. Currently, this warning can be ignored since the deactivation does not actually occur.

  • When Assigned Number from User’s Location is selected, the Emergency Callback Number (ECBN) selects a fallback destination. The displayed name and number in the drop-down is the effective user. It is not the originally configured user. This limitation is cosmetic, but misleading, and will be resolved.

Known Issues for Webex Calling Analytics:

  • Analytics won’t show usage from Webex Calling App mobile users. This will be fixed when Webex Calling App version 3.9.14 is released.

  • Analog telephone adaptors (ATAs) and DECT devices aren’t supported.

  • Devices that register via IPv6 or a VPN termination to Webex Calling are also unsupported.

Local Gateway Configuration

  • The Fax-to-Email feature in Webex Calling requires the T.38 protocol when used via local gateway (CUBE) for instance FAX to Personal Fax number > PSTN > CUBE > Webex Calling SBC > EMAIL. In this case, the media transmission won't be encrypted. Therefore, enable the T.38 protocol at your own discretion.

Webex Calling Devices

  • ATA 191/192 - When attempting a remote firmware upgrade, as part of the on-boarding process, for Cisco ATA 191/192 devices, you may experience a problem if the firmware load on the ATA is an older version. In order to resolve the issue, follow the instructions below to manually upgrade the firmware on your Cisco ATA 191/192.

    • Workaround: Go to Administration > Firmware Upgrade. Unzip the file. Select the unzipped file to upgrade it. The firmware is downloaded from here. After firmware is downloaded, point the ATA back to https://cisco.sipflash.com/.

  • Your MPP device cannot access any Active Directory (AD) that was synchronized by Cisco Directory Connector. From the Custom Directory menu, your MPP phone can only access users that were assigned Webex Calling licenses.

Webex Calling App

  • Your Webex Calling app doesn't have access to Active Directory (AD) for AD synchronization. So, you only have access to other Webex Calling users in your directory (users assigned Webex Calling licenses).

  • If your administrator has set up Webex Calling as your calling application, then your presence won’t change in the Webex app to indicate you are on the phone if you are using the Webex Calling app to make a call.

Changing Your Email with idbroker.webex.com

Webex Calling users can't change their email address on their own. Idbroker.webex.com doesn't support Webex Calling. If a Webex Calling user tries to change their email address with idbroker.webex.com, this will cause a synchronization issue.

All other issues are currently related to the Calling Admin and User portals. For a list of these issues, see Cloud Calling Known Issues.
