  • IsExternalRedirectionConfigured()


    Lua   → VBScript


    This function returns true if the current script user has an unconditional redirection to an external destination enabled.

    Please see the Introduction chapter for some usage instructions.


    -- IsExternalRedirectionConfigured
    -- Checks if there is an unconditional call forwarding configured to an
    -- external number. The function checks if the configured unconditional
    -- call forwarding starts with the configured public line access.
    -- Parameter:
    -- Return:
    --   boolean         true  - external redirection configured
    --                   false - no external redirection configured
    function IsExternalRedirectionConfigured()
        PBXScript.OutputTrace "-------------> IsExternalRedirectionConfigured"
        local bReturn = false
        local tConfig = nil
        local sPublicLineAccess = ""
        tConfig = PBXScript.GetPBXConfig()
        sPublicLineAccess = tConfig.publicaccessprefix
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("Configured public line access: " .. sPublicLineAccess)
        -- check forwarding
        if (PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirect()) then
            PBXScript.OutputTrace ("Unconditional call forwarding configured to " .. PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirectNumber())
            if (StringLeft(PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirectNumber(), StringLen(sPublicLineAccess)) == sPublicLineAccess) then
                PBXScript.OutputTrace ("External call forwarding configured")
                bReturn = true
                PBXScript.OutputTrace ("Internal call forwarding configured")
            PBXScript.OutputTrace ("No unconditional call forwarding configured")
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("bReturn: " .. tostring(bReturn))
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("<------------- IsExternalRedirectionConfigured")
        return bReturn


    This function makes use of the Server Script API function PBXScript.GetPBXConfig() to get the configured public line access. Afterwards it uses PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirect() and PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirectNumber() to check if a redirection is enabled and configured to a number starting with the public line access. It also uses PBXScript.OutputTrace() to write trace information into the SwyxServer trace file. It also uses the GSE build-in helper functios StringLeft() and StringLen().


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