Catching the extension after hangup in Asterisk

Muhajreen asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-12
Hello experts,

In my Asterisk dialplan, I am making some action upon hangup:

exten => h,1,System (action ${EXTEN})

But the action is being taken for exten h, not the extension dialed by caller.

Do you have a solution? I am using one (exten => h) for the whole dialplan, so it's hard to assign a new variable in each dialplan extension to handle the called number.
