Authorization levels

With authorization levels, you can administratively set the minimum presence and contact information to be transferred to users within the UCServer.
In addition, you can use the level to specify the minimum permissions that users receive on other users' lines.

Users can extend the globally assigned permission level, but cannot restrict a globally assigned permission.


There are 4 predefined levels for permissions

  • Public
  • Business
  • Team member
  • Personal

The authorization levels only affect the contact data exchanged via presence information.
The authorization level does not affect the contact search. Contact data, such as the mobile phone number, is still visible via a contact search, regardless of the authorization levels.


These permissions only take effect within the UCServer service responsible for the user.

Federation contacts or contacts of other UCServer services do not see this data! The federation permissions are set separately under "Federation – Domain Permission".

Contact details

The information displayed in the contact details depends on the user management used.
If Active Directory integration is used as user management, additional fields are displayed.
