Dear All,

i have the following context defines in etensions.conf:


[a2billing]
exten => _X.,1,Gotoif($[${EXTEN} = 111] ? 21)
exten => _X.,2,DeadAGI,a2billing.php
exten => _X.,3,Wait,2
exten => _X.,4,Hangup
exten => _X.,21,Playback(AR_GetGiveToID)
exten => _X.,22,Wait(2)
exten => _X.,23,Record(/tmp/asterisk-recording:ulaw,,5)
exten => _X.,24,Wait(2)
exten => _X.,25,Playback(/tmp/asterisk-recording)
exten => _X.,26,Wait(2)
exten => _X.,27,Hangup

I just need to remove the '+' sign from the dialed number just in case any user put the '+' as Internationa prefix...Is that possible?How to do that?

Regards

The key here is asterisk variable substrings.
i.e.
If ${EXTEN} = +19729991234
Then
${EXTEN:1} = 19729991234
${EXTEN:-1} = 4
${EXTEN:0:3} = +197

Here's a different approach that I love using for caller id. This should apply to you as well...

Set(VARIABLE=${FILTER(0123456789,${EXTEN})})

So if you wanted the variable to be let's say NUMDIALED

you would do this:

Set(NUMDIALED=${FILTER(0123456789,${EXTEN})})

And then within future scripts and the dialplan, refer to ${NUMDIALED} instead of ${EXTEN}

You would use

exten => _X.,1,Gotoif($[${EXTEN:1} = 111] ? 21)

Sorry, the If Then was for example only.

Or you might be looking to do this...
exten => _+X.,1,GotoIf($[${EXTEN:1} = 111] ? 21)

Kindly note that + will never work with Gotoif because it's considering it as the + of the math...DO you have any other method that could work?

Dear Palner,

Can you explain more about how to use the filter function that eliminate the + sign?

Set(NUMDIALED=${FILTER(0123456789,${EXTEN})})

You could use that or just filter the exten...

like....

exten => _+X.,1,Gotoif($[${FILTER(0123456789,${EXTEN})} = 111] ? 21)
exten => _+X.,2,DeadAGI,a2billing.php
exten => _+X.,3,Wait,2
exten => _+X.,4,Hangup
exten => _+X.,21,Playback(AR_GetGiveToID)
exten => _+X.,22,Wait(2)
exten => _+X.,23,Record(/tmp/asterisk-recording:ulaw,,5)
exten => _+X.,24,Wait(2)
exten => _+X.,25,Playback(/tmp/asterisk-recording)
exten => _+X.,26,Wait(2)
exten => _+X.,27,Hangup
