Asterisk ARI application

Sorry i am a newbie when it comes to asterisk and i am trying to learn as much as i can, my scenario is that i registered two extension phones to asterisk PBX server using SIP registration. My question is how can i make the call transfer to my ARI application after one of the phones is dial-ed or answered. In other words i want to use the ARI application in order to execute a function to the bridge to the two channels of the phones when they are answered.

My extensions.conf file:

exten => _XX.,1,NoOp(Call from ${CALLERID(num)} to ${EXTEN})
 same =>      n,Dial(PJSIP/${EXTEN},60)
 same =>      n,Stasis(Intro-IVR)
 same =>      n,Hangup()

Asterisk is not executing stasis after the phones answer the dial

   -- Executing [6001@from-internal:1] NoOp("PJSIP/6002-00000005", "Call from 6002 to 6001") in new stack
    -- Executing [6001@from-internal:2] Dial("PJSIP/6002-00000005", "PJSIP/6001,60") in new stack
    -- Called PJSIP/6001
    -- PJSIP/6001-00000006 is ringing
    -- PJSIP/6001-00000006 is ringing
    -- PJSIP/6001-00000006 answered PJSIP/6002-00000005

Generally you don’t and instead do the dialing within your ARI application so you have complete control. That being said the Dial application does provide the G option[1] which can be used to direct each party to another place in the dialplan upon answer. This location could call your ARI application.

Thank you for clarifying for me jcolp. So i removed the dial from my extensions.conf file so i can dial from the ARI application to have full control. When i want to dial an extension from another extension i am creating a channel for the called extension so that i can bridge the two channels. But my problem is that i cannot hear any voice from the speaker. Do i have to add any additional API?

You haven’t stated precisely what you are doing, so I can’t answer. For example how are you doing the dialing? Are you acting on the events and adding the channels to a bridge? Is there any failure responses to your API calls to this?

My suggestion is to try to isolate the problem and identify where precisely it is going wrong.

Sorry i didnt fully explain myself, after you informed me that i need to dial within my ARI application instead of dialing from the extension.conf file i proceeded to do a basic application that will enable 2 extensions to dial each other using ARI library. I was working on creating the caller channel and then linking the 2 channels to a bridge so that the API works. All is good now thank you so much jcolp.
