  • IsUserInGroup()


    Lua   → VBScript


    This function checks if the current script user is member of the given group.

    Please see the Introduction chapter for some usage instructions.


    -- IsUserInGroup 
    -- Checks if the current script user is in the given group
    -- Parameter:
    --   sGroup          group number or name
    -- Return:
    --   boolean 
    function IsUserInGroup ( sGroup )
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("----------> IsUserInGroup ( " .. sGroup .. " )")
        local bReturn = false
        local oUsers  = nil
        oUsers = PBXScript.GetUserByAddress(sGroup)
        if (oUsers ~= nil) then
            for i = 1, #oUsers do
                PBXScript.OutputTrace ("Found user '" .. oUsers[i]:Name() .. "'")
                if (oUsers[i]:Name() == PBXUser.Name()) then
                    PBXScript.OutputTrace ("Current script user '" .. PBXUser.Name() .. "' is member of the group '" .. sGroup .. "'!")
                    bReturn = true
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("bReturn = " .. tostring(bReturn))
        PBXScript.OutputTrace ("<---------- IsUserInGroup")
        return bReturn


    This function makes use of the Server Script API functions PBXConfig.GetUserByAddress() to resolve all users in the given group and PBXUser.Name() to get the name of the current script user. It also uses PBXScript.OutputTrace() to write trace information into the SwyxServer trace file.


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