Good morning community;
All SIP accounts on my multitenant Asterisk 1.8 PBX have a unique 6 digits combination (XXXXXX);
On top of this, each tenant may have the same extension number configured in their PBX (2001, 2002, etc);
When a call comes in, it is dialed this way: Dial(“SIP/XXXXXX”);
An extension can call another extension by using the 4 digits extension number as well;
…all of this works fine.
- If I want to configure BLF for all PBX tenants, do I just create a “blf” context and put all 6 digits account numbers in there and configure each phone on the platform to use the account number as its BLF value? Or is there a better way to do this for my context? e.g.
exten = 111111,hint,SIP/111111
exten = 222222,hint,SIP/222222
exten = 333333,hint,SIP/333333
- I also don’t quite understand how the “BLF call pickup prefix” on the grandstream phones comes into place and how it would integrate into this dialplan? If someone could ELI5 that would also be appreciated.
As always, thank you !
