Function: IsExternalRedirectionConfigured

Recommended Posts

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


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

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.

This object is used to get the configured public line access on the server.

It also uses the PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirect and PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirectNumber to check the redirection configuration.

To use the function within your call routing script just copy&paste it into the "Start" block and call it afterwards within an "Evaluate" block.


' 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
Function IsExternalRedirectionConfigured()
	PBXScript.OutputTrace "-------------> IsExternalRedirectionConfigured"

	Dim bReturn
	bReturn = False

	Dim sPublicLineAccess
	sPublicLineAccess = g_PBXConfig.PublicAccessPrefix()
	PBXScript.OutputTrace "Configured public line access: " & sPublicLineAccess

	' check forwarding
	If PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirect Then

		PBXScript.OutputTrace "Unconditional call forwarding configured to " & PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirectNumber

		If Left(PBXUser.UnconditionalRedirectNumber, Len(sPublicLineAccess)) = sPublicLineAccess Then
			PBXScript.OutputTrace "External call forwarding configured"
			bReturn = True
			PBXScript.OutputTrace "Internal call forwarding configured"
		End If

		PBXScript.OutputTrace "No unconditional call forwarding configured"
	End If

	IsExternalRedirectionConfigured = bReturn

	PBXScript.OutputTrace "bReturn: " & bReturn
	PBXScript.OutputTrace "<------------- IsExternalRedirectionConfigured"
End Function
