Alternative for dbget and dbput

Hi everyone,

I’ve seen this script from one of the posts in wiki but the problem is i’m now using 1.4.x. Is there anyway i can make this work.


exten => s,1,DBget(status=cfstatus/${ARG1})
exten => s,2,Playback(es-cfstatus) ; Your call forwarding status is currently…

exten => s,3,NoOp($[${status} != 0]);

exten => s,4,GotoIf($[${status} != 0]?s,7)
exten => s,5,Playback(es-inactive) ; inactive
exten => s,6,Goto(s,10)
exten => s,7,Playback(es-active) ; active
exten => s,8,Playback(es-forwarded) ; All calls are forwarded to…
exten => s,9,SayDigits(${status})
exten => s,10,Wait,1 ;

exten => s,102,DBPut(cfstatus/${ARG1}=${DEFAULTCFSTATUS})
exten => s,103,Goto(s,1)


Im sorry but this is a RTFM .

Read from or write to the Asterisk database

This function will read from or write a value to the Asterisk database. On a
read, this function returns the corresponding value from the database, or blank
if it does not exist. Reading a database value will also set the variable
DB_RESULT. If you wish to find out if an entry exists, use the DB_EXISTS


All you need to know is there or on or they book


I believe they removed dbget and dbput on asterisk 1.4.X that’s why i asked for any alternative way. I havent used macro before.

Sorry I dont get you,

I have posted the details of the way that was introduced in 1.2 ie DB it is well documented in the upgrade notes of 1.0 to 1.2 and to 1.4, What I have posted has nothing to do with macros. This is the help pages from asterisk its self. I assume you do use them ?
