Skype for Business UCWA clients can't be distinguished on CDR report if connection is internal or external in Skype for Business Server 2019

Applies to: Skype for Business Server 2019


In a Microsoft Skype for Business Server 2019 environment, you use the Skype for Business on Mac or mobile client that's in an external network to start a call with a Skype for Business client user. You may find that the value of Is From user internal or Is To user internal (depending on whether the UCWA user is the caller or callee) always shows Yes on the Call detail recording (CDR) report. It's expected that the clients should be flagged correctly as external or internal on this report.


To fix this issue, install the July 2019 cumulative update 7.0.2046.123 for Skype for Business Server 2019 and Unified Communications Managed API 5.0 Runtime.
