  • GetUserNameFromExtension()


    Lua   → VBScript


    The following function returns the user name from a given extension.

    Please see the Introduction chapter for some usage instructions.


    -- GetUserNameFromExtension
    -- Returns the user name for the given extension.
    -- Parameter:
    --   sExtension      extension
    -- Return:
    --   string          user name
    function GetUserNameFromExtension( sExtension )
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("------> GetUserNameFromExtension ( " .. sExtension .. " )")
        local sReturn = ""
        local oUsers  = nil
        oUsers = PBXScript.GetUserByAddress(sExtension)
        if (oUsers ~= nil) then
            for i = 1, #oUsers do
                PBXScript.OutputTrace ("Found user '" .. oUsers[i]:Name() .. "'")
                sReturn = oUsers[i]:Name()
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("sReturn = " .. sReturn)
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("<------ GetUserNameFromExtension")
        return sReturn


    This function makes use of the Server Script API functions PBXConfig.GetUserByAddress() to get the user name from the given number and PBXScript.OutputTrace() to write trace information into the SwyxServer trace file.


    Examples for the usage of this function can be found in the functions IsRedirectedFromByNumber() and IsRedirectionLoopConfigured().


    This function was converted from VBScript into Lua from the initially posted version in this forum topic.
