Dialplan Extensions

Example extension dialplan configuration sections in extensions.conf. Phone features such as call-forwarding, pickup and parking require x-cisco-serviceuri extensions to be configured.

Dialplan features used by the Cisco phones are prefixed with x-cisco-serviceuri-, start by stripping it off. Note: x needs to be surrounded by [] otherwise it will be interpreted as to match any digit. Available feature extensions are listed below.

exten => _[x]-cisco-serviceuri-.,1,Goto(${EXTEN:19},1)

blfpickup link

Busy Lamp Field Directed Call Pickup, ${EXTEN:10} is the number specified as the <speedDialNumber> in a BLF speed-dial line key definition, also needs to have a matching subscribe entry in sip.conf.

dpark link

Directed BLF Call Park, blind-transfers the current call to this extension. ${EXTEN:6} is the number specified as the <speedDialNumber> in a BLF Directed Call Park line key definition, also needs to have a matching subscribe entry in sip.conf. The dpark prefix is only used when that parking extension is not in use, otherwise it uses the optional <retrievalPrefix>.

exten => _dpark-.,1,Set(PARKINGEXTEN=${EXTEN:6}) same => next,Goto(park,1)

; Specify a name and number for the hunt-group. exten => _X.,1,Set(_CISCO_HUNTGROUP="Ring All" <${EXTEN}>)) same => next,Dial(SIP/301&SIP/302&SIP/303,,30) ...
