Overview of call behavior and assign calling entitlements

This feature allows administrators to configure the calling client settings, including mixed-mode deployment for organizations with users entitled with Unified CM or Webex Calling and users without paid calling services from Cisco. The administrator can configure Jabber or Webex App for Unified CM entitlements, and Webex Calling app or Webex App for Webex Calling entitlements. For users without paid calling services from Cisco, there is an option to launch third-party applications for calling services. The specific call behavior options depend on the user’s license type.

The options available for the call behavior setting depends on the license(s) assigned to a user:

  • You can set up users with a Webex Calling license for either the Webex App, Webex Calling app, or third-party apps.

  • You can set up users with a Unified CM license for either the Webex App or Jabber app.

  • You can set up users without a paid calling service from Cisco to use third-party apps to initiate calls. By default, all calls will use Call on Webex.

You can set the options for calling behavior for both Unified CM and Webex Calling users at the Organizational and User levels.


You cannot configure this setting at the location level, and you cannot configure third-party application services at the user level.

You can use only one calling license at a time. However, it is possible to select both Webex Calling and Unified CM registration for migration scenarios. Selecting both calling licenses for individual users provides the administrative screens in Control Hub to configure Webex Calling and end-user access and calling behavior configuration for Unified CM. This configuration allows an end user to have an uninterrupted calling service on Unified CM while the administrator configures Webex Calling. Once the configuration of Webex Calling is done, the administrator can then remove Unified CM entitlement. This completes the migration of the user to Webex Calling.
