  • IsRedirectedFromByNameEx


    VBScript   → Lua   SwxWare v13.27


    This function checks if the current call was redirected by a given user or group.

    Please see the Introduction chapter for some usage instructions.


    ' IsRedirectedFromByNameEx
    ' Checks if current call is redirected by a given user or group.
    ' The user or group is identified by its name.
    ' Parameter:
    '   sName           name of user or group to check if call is redirected from
    ' Return:
    '   boolean         true  - call was redirected by given user or group
    '                   false - call was not redirected by the given user or group
    Function IsRedirectedFromByNameEx(sName)
        PBXScript.OutputTrace "----------> IsRedirectedFromByNameEx ( " & sName & " )"
        Dim bReturn
        bReturn = False
        Dim PrevScripts
        Set PrevScripts = PBXScript.PreviousScripts
        Dim PrevScript
        For Each PrevScript In PrevScripts
            if PrevScript.EntityType = PBXScriptTypeUser then
                PBXScript.OutputTrace "found user " & PrevScript.EntityName
                PBXScript.OutputTrace "found group " & PrevScript.EntityName
            end if
            If PrevScript.EntityName = sName Then
                PBXScript.OutputTrace "this is a redirected call from " & sName
                bReturn = True
            End If
        IsRedirectedFromByNameEx = bReturn
        PBXScript.OutputTrace "bReturn = " & bReturn
        PBXScript.OutputTrace "<--------- IsRedirectedFromByNameEx"
    End Function


    This function makes use of the Server script API function PBXScript.PreviousScripts to check if the call has been transferred by the given user (defined by his name) and PBXScript.OutputTrace to write trace information into the SwyxServer trace file.



    Please note: this function makes use of newly introduced functionalitly in SwyxWare v13.27 within the PBXScript.PreviousScripts collection. It is therefore able to check for users and groups the call have been before reaching the current script.

    There is a previous version of this function available, IsRedirectedFromByName, which can check for users only.



    A usage example of this function could be the following:


    Boss redirects all his calls to his secretary. The secretary redirects all her calls to the operator because she has to leave the office. So, when calling the boss directly one would end up at the operator.


    For the operator it would be useful to know if this is such a "boss" call. So, all you have to do is to call this function with the name of the boss user and afterwards e.g. manipulate the text being shown in the SwyxIt! display.


    If IsRedirectedFromByNameEx("Mr. Boss") Then
        PBXCall.CallingPartyName = "BOSS - " & PBXCall.CallingPartyName
    End If


    Another usage of this function can be found in the function IsRedirectedFromByNumber.



    This function was initially posted into this forum topic.
