What is the Bulk Administration Tool (BAT)?

The Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) is a web-based application that is a component of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM). It lets you add, update, delete and make changes to a large set of similar devices in your Cisco network, such as phones, users and ports.

To use BAT, do the following:

  1. Configure a template.

  2. Define the data format.

  3. Collect the devices' data.

  4. Upload the data.

  5. Validate the data.

  6. Submit the job.

  7. Schedule the job.

  8. Execute the job.

At the heart of BAT is the Bulk Provision Service (BPS). This service, which you start from Unified Communications Manager Serviceability, manages the jobs that you submit through BAT.

BAT also includes an optional component called the Unified Communications Manager Auto-Register Phone Tool, which lets you add a large number of phones without the need of entering MAC addresses.
