Description:If I configure a conference room in meetme.conf with a pin (i *think* this is the place we are supposed to do this?) then setup my dialplan to send a user to that conference, there is no pin requirement. In addition, and this is where I'm uncertain if this is even supposed to work, any settings in meetme.conf seem to be blatantly ignored by ConfBridge.

I have no idea where this documentation came from, as it is apparently inaccurate, but this site says I *can* set a pin on ConfBridge in the dialplan: http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/Asterisk+cmd+ConfBridge

But instead it just thinks the ",pin#" part of the dialplan command is part of the options list. I notice that doing "core show application confbridge" in the asterisk console while running -rc3 and -rc6 does not say anything about a pin whatsoever.

I am not sure where to look, but as far as official asterisk documentation I cannot find any way to set a pin on a conference created with ConfBridge.


I have tested this in and, and have no reason to believe it behaves any differently in the other version of

There is no Product Version category for 1.6.2 for me to select for this bug, just fyi.

I've noticed you mentioning the Product Version a couple of times now, and you can just ignore it -- it isn't used here. Only 'Asterisk Version' field matters when reporting bugs.

I hope to get that Product Version stuff removed in the future.

It seems whoever wrote the documentation on voip-info.org is incorrect -- there does not appear to be any pin functionality in app_confbridge (I just looked through the code for 'pin' and got nothing).

If you wish to implement pins for conferences, you could do this with th Read() application prior to entering the conference via app_confbridge using some dialplan logic.
