Telephony, Audio, and Video preferences

The following table lists the telephony, audio, and video preferences for the IBM® Sametime® Connect Client and Sametime Embedded Client for Notes®.

Table 1. Global Preferences - com.ibm.collaboration.realtime  release 8.5.1 and later
Attribute Variable type Description Release
enableSUT Boolean. Default is false. Applies to Sametime Unified Telephony subscribers only. When the value is set to true, the Sametime Unified Telephony plug-ins installed with the client become active. Subscribers see telephony status icons in the contact list and features such as call history and the phone book are enabled. Restart the client for the change to take effect.
Note: For information about integrating Notes Contacts with the Sametime phonebook, see the topic Integrating Notes Contacts with the Sametime phonebook.
8.5.1 and later
enableTelephonyStatus Boolean. Default is false. Set the value to true to enable the display of telephony presence status icons for livenames on the contact list or elsewhere. This is used for telephony presence published using the Sametime Telephony Presence Adapter, which is used by both Sametime Unified Telephony and some third-party telephony presence solutions. If you set enableSUT to true, it is not necessary to also set enableTelephonyStatus to true. When Sametime Unified Telephony is enabled, telephony status shows regardless of this preference value. However, in environments with both Sametime Unified Telephony users and nonusers, you can set enableTelephonyStatus to true so nonusers can see telephony presence for Sametime Unified Telephony users. 8.5.1 and later
enableExtendedStatus Boolean. Default is false. Set the value to true to enable the use of extended status icons for live names on the contact list or elsewhere. Extended status icons are most often used for telephony presence status, however some third-party applications use extended status icons for other types of status. To display telephony status icons for applications that use the Sametime Telephony Presence Adadpter, use enableTelephonyStatus rather than enableExtendedStatus. It is only necessary to set enableExtendedStatus when not using telephony presence from the Sametime Telephony Presence Adapter. As with enableTelephonyStatus, enableExtendedStatus is ignored when you set enableSUT to true, since Sametime Unified Telephony always shows telephony status icons. 8.5.1 and later

Attribute Variable type Description Release
enableAutoSynch Boolean Set to false to disable automatic synchronization. When automatic synchronization is disabled, quick find still works by reading Notes Contacts, but caller ID does not work. 8.5.2 IFR1
enableDeleteOnSynch Boolean

Set to true to enable deleting during synchronization. When enabled, Sametime phone book entries, not in Notes Contacts, are deleted during the synchronization. By default, contacts that are not in Notes Contacts are automatically deleted if the phone book is hidden.

8.5.2 IFR1
InitialSynchDelay Long Specify the number of seconds to wait before initial synchronization after the telephony service is received. The default value is 120 seconds. 8.5.2 IFR1
IntervalSynchDelay Long Specify the number of seconds to wait between synchronization operations. Setting this value to -1 disables the interval synchronization. Customers may want to do this if they only want the Notes Contacts to be synchronized once per log in to Sametime. The default value is 3600 seconds. 8.5.2 IFR1
postDialDelimeters String Specify a space-delimited list of strings which indicate post dial sequences, for example, a conference passcode. If the number contains a post dial sequence, for example, "+1884266840;postd=11111" then the number is split when it is imported into Sametime contacts. This allows support of automatic dialling of conference passcodes. The default delimiters are ";postd=", "x".
Note: Entering a number such as "+1884266840x11111" breaks LiveText support because one extra space is required. For example, "+1884266840 x11111"
