This interface represents a user using a particular communication device. It provides the user context for presence and communications services. An enabled endpoint of a registered user also serves as the factory object for managing communications and collaboration sessions as well as publication and subscription of category instances. It also be used to manage media devices on a local computer and media connectivity across firewalls. This means that the IUccSessionManager, IUccPublicationManager, IUccSubscriptionManager, IUccMediaEndpointSettings, and IUccServerSignalingSettings interfaces can all be queried from an IUccEndpoint instance.

An endpoint is obtained from an IUccPlatform instance factory object with a call into CreateEndpoint.

Win32 COM/C++ Syntax

interface IUccEndpoint : IUnknown


The following example creates a new local user endpoint and returns the obtained endpoint interface to calling code. It is important that a client advise for endpoint events in order to receive critical endpoint events such as OnEnable.

private IUccEndpoint CreateLocalEndpoint(UccUri localUserUri)
   IUccEndpoint returnValue = null;
   // Create the sip endpoint and advise for endpoint events
   returnValue = this.platform.CreateEndpoint(
   if (returnValue != null)
      //advise for endpoint events to catch OnEnable
   return returnValue;
