Firmware 5.2.0 modify header of mac-directory.xml file.

Occasional Advisor

Firmware 5.2.0 modify header of mac-directory.xml file.



For the mac-directory.xml file we use a custom header, because is generated by a script for diferent brances....


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<!-- offices::[....] --><!-- directoryname::[....] --><directory>


When you add to favorite a conntact and save from the phone (VXX500 in my case) it will modify the header...

The older version of firmware did't change the header...

Now when I save from the phone looks like this the header:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<!-- edited with XMLSPY v5 rel. 4 U ( -->
<?Saved @ --2016-03-08T10:35:08-- ?>


Is there any possibility to keep my header?


Best Regards,

Hello Constantin,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

This is not possible and you should look at something like a central phone book aka LDAP or similar instead.


A feature request would be required to change this as explained here:
