Connection settings for Avaya CM with Contact Center Elite

NOTE   If your organization has New WFM, then New WFM implementations are done in a separate process. A select number of integrated platforms can be configured using the WFM Integrations page (see Manage WFM integrations). If your integrated platform is not listed on the WFM Integrations page, then it requires a project managed by Calabrio Professional Services.


The following configurations are required for Calabrio ONE QM to reconcile calls to your Avaya system.

  • Enable special application: SA8702 - CDR Enhancements for Network. Contact an authorized Avaya account representative to obtain the license. This feature causes the UCID to follow the call.
  • Enable special application: SA8201 - Start Time and 4-Digit Year CDR Custom Fields.
  • An Avaya CM login with CDR access.
  • CDR configured to save CDRs to disk.
  • Trunks configured to generate CDR records.
  • Individual extensions configured to generate CDR records, Intra-switch CDR. Call splitting must be enabled to have accurate times for parties that have dropped from a multiparty call. If not, end times register as the time the call ended, which is when all parties have dropped from the call.
  • The following CDR Parameters must be configured in your Avaya system.

    • ucid
    • start-time
    • end-time
    • start-date(4)
    • end-date(4)
