Function: GetUserNameFromExtension

Recommended Posts

This post is taken from the Swyx Forum Archive (2007-2014) and was originally posted 10.08.2010 by me


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

It makes use of the PBXConfig object which is fully described in the following Swyx knowledgebase article:

Please note that it is not necessary to instantiate the PBXConfig object yourself, as it is already available in the global variable g_PBXConfig.
To use the function within your call routing script just copy&paste it into the "Start" block.


' GetUserNameFromExtension
' Returns the user name for the given extension.
' Parameter:
'	sExtension		extension
' Return:
'	string			user name
Function GetUserNameFromExtension(ByVal sExtension)
	PBXScript.OutputTrace "------> GetUserNameFromExtension ( " & sExtension & " )"
	On Error Resume Next

	Dim sReturn
	sReturn = ""

	Dim oUSers
	Set oUsers = g_PBXConfig.GetUserByAddress(sExtension)
	If Err <> 0 Then
		PBXScript.OutputTrace "ERROR getting user from IpPBxSrv.PBXConfig object!"
		PBXScript.OutputTrace "ERROR: " & CStr(Hex(Err)) & " - " & Err.Description
		Exit Function
	End If
	Dim oUser
	For Each oUser In oUsers
		PBXScript.OutputTrace "Name: " & oUser.Name
		sReturn = oUser.Name
	GetUserNameFromExtension = sReturn

	PBXScript.OutputTrace "sReturn = " & sReturn
	PBXScript.OutputTrace "<------ GetUserNameFromExtension"
End Function


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