Redirects (Call forward) and P-Asserted-Identity

Hi all - I am trying to set up call forward for my endpoints.

Here’s a snippet from my dialplan

exten => call-forward-unconditional,1,NoOp()
 same => n,Set(CHANNEL(accountcode)=${ACCOUNT_CODE})

 same => n,Set(REDIRECTING(count,i)=$[${REDIRECTING(count)} + 1])
 same => n,Set(REDIRECTING(from-num,i)=${NUMBER})
 same => n,Set(REDIRECTING(from-num-pres,i)=allowed)
 same => n,Set(REDIRECTING(to-num,i)=${CFU})
 same => n,Set(REDIRECTING(reason)=cfu)
 same => n,Set(PJSIP_HEADER(update,P-Asserted-Identity)=<sip:${NUMBER}>)
 same => n,Dial(PJSIP/${CFU}@${TRUNK})

The trunk is configured with

endpoint/send_pai = yes
endpoint/trust_id_outbound = yes

Unfortunately the P-Asserted-Identity header is not being updated. In a SIP trace I still see the original incoming PAI and causes my calls to be rejected by my provider. If anyone could please provide some insight into this I would appreciate it.

Sorry, I forgot to mention I am running Asterisk 14.7.3

chan_pjsip doesn’t really allow headers it generates like that (PAI) to be modified. If you need PAI to change as well then you’d need to change the CONNECTEDLINE information too.

Thanks for the hint. Unfortunately I can’t seem to get my use case to work with any combination of CALLERID, REDIRECTING and CONNECTEDLINE. I’d like to preserve the original caller-id in the “From” header but replace the PAI so my provider accepts the call.

If I set CALLERID(all) before dial it replaces the From and PAI
If I set any CALLERID(priv-*), CONNECTEDLINE(priv-*) nothing seems to change

Do you think this is possible? Unfortunately doesn’t have any examples with Privacy :frowning: Maybe I’m on the wrong track here

There is no ability to independently set them, the only way to override is explicitly using the from_user option on the endpoint.

Hmm OK interesting. I’ll need to rethink this approach. Thanks for your help.
