View or change Skype for Business Server user properties

For a user account that is enabled or temporarily disabled for Skype for Business Server, you can use the Active Roles Web Interface to view or change Skype for Business Server user properties such as the user’s SIP address, telephony options and Skype for Business Server policy assignments.

To view or change Skype for Business Server user properties

  1. In the Active Roles Web Interface for administrators, select the user account whose properties you want to view or change.
  2. Click the Skype for Business Server User Properties command.

    The Web Interface displays the Skype for Business Server User Properties command if you have sufficient rights in Active Roles to view Skype for Business Server user properties of the selected account, and the user account you have selected is in the scope of the policy provided by Skype for Business Server User Management and is enabled or temporarily disabled for Skype for Business Server.

  1. On the page that appears, view or change the following settings:
    • Enabled for Skype for Business Server  Indicates whether or not the user is enabled to log on to Skype for Business Server. If you clear this check box, the user will no longer be able to log on to Skype for Business Server. Selecting this check box re-enables the user to log on to Skype for Business Server. The function of this check box is equivalent to the Temporarily Disable for Skype for Business Server and Re-enable for Skype for Business Server commands (see Disable or re-enable a user account for Skype for Business Server).
    • SIP address  Indicates the user’s SIP address (SIP URI), a unique identifier that allows the user to communicate using SIP devices such as Microsoft Skype for Business. The SIP address consists of the SIP user name on the left side of the @ symbol, and the SIP domain name on the right side. It must be prefaced by “sip:”; for example, sip:John.Smith@company.com.
    • Registrar pool  Identifies the Enterprise Edition Front End pool or Standard Edition server where the Skype for Business Server user is homed. If you need to move the user to a different server or pool, see Move a user to another server or pool in Skype for Business Server later in this document.
    • Telephony  Specifies whether the Skype for Business Server user can make PC-to-PC calls with audio and video, route incoming and outgoing calls, and control the desktop phone. The possible telephony options are as follows:

      • PC-to-PC only  The user can make only PC-to-PC audio or video calls.
      • Audio/video disabled  The user cannot make calls with audio and video.
      • Remote call control  The user can use Skype for Business Server to control the desktop phone, and can also make PC-to-PC calls.
      • Enterprise Voice  The user can use Skype for Business Server to route all incoming and outgoing calls, and can also make PC-to-PC calls.
      • Remote call control only  The user can use Skype for Business Server to control the desktop phone, but cannot make PC-to-PC audio calls.

    • Line URI  Applies to all telephony options but Audio/video disabled. Specifies the primary phone number assigned to the Skype for Business Server user.

      The line URI must use the E.164 format and have the "TEL:" prefix. For example: TEL:+12345678997. The extension number, if any, should be added at the end of the line URI, for example: TEL:+12345678997;ext=65431.

    • Line server URI  Applies to the Remote call control and Remote call control only options. Specifies the URI of the remote call control telephone gateway assigned to the Skype for Business Server user.

      The line server URI is the gateway URI, prefaced by “sip:”; for example, sip:rccgateway@company.com.

    • Dial plan policy  Applies to the Enterprise Voice option. Identifies the dial plan currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different dial plan.
    • Voice policy  Applies to the Enterprise Voice option. Identifies the voice policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different voice policy.
    • Conferencing policy  Identifies the conferencing policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different conferencing policy to the user.
    • Conferencing policy  Identifies the conferencing policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different conferencing policy to the user.
    • Client version policy  Identifies the client version policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different client version policy.
    • PIN policy  Identifies the personal identification number (PIN) policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different PIN policy.
    • External access policy  Identifies the external access policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different external access policy.
    • Archiving policy  Identifies the archiving policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different archiving policy.
    • Location policy  Identifies the location policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different location policy.
    • Mobility policy  Identifies the mobility policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different mobility policy.
    • Persistent Chat policy  Identifies the persistent chat policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different persistent chat policy.
    • Client policy  Identifies the client policy currently assigned to the Skype for Business Server user, and allows you to assign a different client policy.

Skype for Business Server user account properties allow you to assign certain policies to a Skype for Business Server user in order to specify particular settings that differ from the settings defined in policies assigned to other users, such as global policies. These policies are referred to as user policies.

In Skype for Business Server, deploying and assigning user policies is optional. It is possible to deploy only global policies or site policies. If user policies are deployed, they must be assigned to users explicitly. When managing Skype for Business Server user settings, you can select the appropriate user policy from a list. The list also includes the <Automatic> entry. If <Automatic> is selected, the global policy (or, if defined, the site policy) is assigned to the user.
