Cisco Finesse

I couldn’t figure out how to turn on finesse. It’s a CLI command and only permitted to change on the primary node.

Reminder – you cannot run both CAD and Finesse agents.

Cisco Finesse is a next-generation agent and supervisor desktop designed to provide a collaborative experience for the various communities that interact with your customer service organization. It helps improve the customer experience while offering a user-centric design to enhance customer care representative satisfaction as well.

Cisco Finesse provides:

  • A browser-based administration console and a browser-based desktop for agents and supervisors; no client-side installations required.
  • A single, customizable “cockpit”, or interface, that gives customer care providers quick and easy access to multiple assets and information sources.
  • Open web 2.0 APIs that simplify the development and integration of value-added applications and minimize the need for detailed desktop development expertise.
  • By default, Cisco Finesse Service is not activated during the initial component-activation phase or when the appropriate licenses are updated on a Unified CCX deployment.

Run utils uccx finesse activate command to activate Cisco Finesse Service on each Unified CCX node in a cluster.

“””Unified CCX 10.0(1) does not support concurrent use of Cisco Agent/Supervisor Desktop and Cisco Finesse.

  • If you are using Cisco Agent/Supervisor Desktop, deactivate Cisco Finesse service.Do you want to proceed? (yes/no)””” yes

    Cisco Finesse activation in progress…

    Cisco Finesse activated successfully.

    If this is a HA deployment, run this command on both Unified CCX nodes.


Configuration changes are permitted on only the primary server. Access to Finesse administration console on the secondary server is read-only.

When you attempt to save the changes in Finesse administration console on the secondary node, you receive a message that administration on the secondary node is read-only.
