Redirect call to Feature code (Pickup *8)


I am using namedpickupgroups in pjsip.conf.

As I would like to make special hints, to e.g. *81114 (That means Pick up for extension 1114). I would like to set a BLF Key with *81114, and also would like to accept a group pickup via *81114.

How am I able to redirect the call to *81114 to the feature code *8?

I’ve tried:
exten = *81114,1,GoTo(*8,1)
exten = *81114,1,GoTo(general,*8,1)

But this always ends up in the following error:
sent to invalid extension but no invalid handler: context,exten,priority=general,*8,1

Is there a possibility to redirect a call to a feature code?

Thanks in advance!
Best regards

If you are referring to the built-in *8, no, you can’t go there because it’s not actually part of the dialplan. You would need to use the Pickup dialplan application instead.

Hello jcolp,

thank you for your reply!

I’ve tried using:
exten = *81114,1,Pickup()

and it works fine :slight_smile:
Do you know if there would be any difference in choosing this, over the *8 feature?

Best regards

Without arguments nothing really. It has more functionality than *8 though.
