Attempting to use soft keys on Cisco SPA508G phones to implement Parking with BLF. I have the parking lot set up (10000) in Asterisk 13.5, with spaces from 10001-10050 (I’ll use the whole range when it goes live). Each button has fnc=blf+sd;sub=10001@$PROXY;ext=10001@$PROXY; (10002, 10003, etc.) which works for the BLF, Park, and ParkedCall. Once the call is parked, the light turns solid red. When the button is pressed again, the call is retrieved, and the light goes green. This is a little misleading. The hint returns to Idle, but the calling extension is still in the application Park(10000), and the callee (parker/retriever) is showing ParkedCall(10000,10001). That parking position is not really available. The callee can then repark the call on a different parking space, but cannot repark on the same space (I need to find a way to repark in the same space). If the callee tries to park on the same space, both caller and callee hear MOH. The caller appears to be in the same place, and the callee is now parking himself.
Ideally, for my scenario, I would like to see the parked call hint show ringing so the light will blink red (or any other device state that will show blinking). When it’s picked up, either go solid red (InUse) or join the endpoints, and remove the Park/ParkedCall completely. I’ve been trying a number of configs for this over the past few days. Besides modifying the source to set the hints does anyone else have an idea to make this work for me? Thanks.
