Description:A method to assign CallerID to a dialplan application that does not have a phone/device associated with it. Normally, CID is resolved through the device config file (sip.conf, iax.conf), but when the destination is a dialplan application instead of a real phone, there's no method to set CallerID.

1000,n,DisplayName(VOICE MAIL) <1000>

Now, when you dial x1000 for voice mail, the display shows "VOICE MAIL".


Original idea from Asterisk Users mailing list (Andy Vega).

Not to be confused with the existing SetCallerID app.

This is very hardware-dependant. chan_sccp [1] can do this with SetCalledParty on Cisco 7960 with the SCCP image, the SIP image supports this with firmware 7.5, but currently there is no app for SIP...

This is actually only the beginning of _full_ remote-party-identification support that we need across the board in Asterisk (across all channel types and applications). Even doing what you asked here is not really that useful, since the application may want to manipulate the 'party name' while it is running.

We have some plans to work on this after 1.2 is released, but there is no particular reason for this to sit in Mantis as open issue.
