Out Bound IVR using external data source to dial out and play pre recorded messages

Hi my name is Ahsan, I am new to Asterisk and need some help.basically i need to build an out bound ivr that will get the data i.e.customer name, number,type of event(its a pre recorder message )from external data source (MS SQL/Oracle) dial out and play the pre recorder message received from data source and update the data base like some flag, so the next time it will search for data the same customer data should not be populated.


currently i am trying to achieve this using elastix if there is any other solution available would be appriciated

Here’s the WIKI, It’s a good starting point.


It sounds like you will want to look at using call files or manager origination and FUNC_ODBC at the minimum .
