After configuring all the parameters, click Test Connection to check the connection to the database. If the test was successful, it will show the Online status:
Now save the configuration. Repeat the process to configure the connection to the callback database. If everything is correct, both data sources will have the Online status:
After the Data Sources are configured, import the reporting templates for CVP. They can be downloaded from the CVP server (C:\Cisco\CVP\CVP Reporting Templates):

Select the file to be imported and select the CUIC folder the imported report should be saved to:
There may be an error during the import. That means you should select a Data Source for the report. Let’s fix it:
The imported report will appear in CUIC:
Now run the report and apply the required filters:
