Description:This patch will allow the user to provide an override for the context, extension and priority that Park() will ring back on, when it times out.  Any values not specified will use the regular defaults.

****** STEPS TO REPRODUCE ******

Not a bug; just a feature boost.


ParkAndAnnounce is not sufficient; it doesn't announce the parked extension to the caller, except via a callback; on a busy phone system, that is not practical, as the parker might think it's another call.

I had previously had this functionality using the app_valetparking.so module.  However, I need to do blf'ing of the parked call.  So, I modified this module to suit the task.  It doesn't have quite the same functionality of app_valetparking.so, but I only needed to have the functionality of ringing back on a specific extension within a specific context.

This is the product of that.

dlynes: you have the source and target wrong in your diff command.

Here's a patch against current trunk.
Besides the modifications to res_features.conf it also has the mods for features.conf.

I just logged a feature request, and this patch seems to provide the functionailty we need for a client. Any chance of it making it into a release?

Is there any chance of including this in a 1.4 release, or will it wait for 1.6?

The comebacktoorigin (trunk) isnt enough?
You could simply make a Goto in the default context when it times out.

We actually need to put the text 'Parked call' on the screens of the phones, so that when a call returned from parking people know what it is, vs a fresh call.

I dont see why you cant do that with the comebacktoorigin=no.
It just has a pre-defined context when the parked call times out.

any comment on my last post?
We would like to close that bug.

A new feature has been created for solving that specific need.
