I started working with Asterisk (16.2.1) recently so i’m not really experienced and still learning and i’ve hit a problem that i’m not really able to solve on my own.
I want to be able to call every extension in my context, where as soon as the first one picks up it stops ringing for everyone else(like a group call, not a conference!). I’ve managed to write a dialplan that allows me to do exactly that but something bothers me:
When i call my “group call number”, it rings for everyone, including my own number. I’m basically calling myself and thats a problem. So i need to find a way to tell asterisk “call everyone else but not me”. I’m not sure how to define an exception for my own callerID. Currently i’m working with a simple Dial()-Application.
To make it more clear here an example:
Let’s say i’ve got my context [group1] with my extensions <3001>, <3002>, 3003>, <3004> & <3005>, to start my “group call” i’m dialing “3999” with the 3001:
exten => 3999,n,Dial(SIP/3001&SIP/3002&SIP/3003&SIP/3004&SIP/3005)
Is there a specific application that allows me to do exactly that and i just simply missed it?
Again, i’m working with asterisk for the first time so sorry in advance if i don’t get a few things at first.
Thank you for your help! I apprechiate it!
