Validate based on contains

I have two channel variables


If CI existed within the larger concatenated DOBS string, I want to goto A, If CI was not part of DOBS I would go to B. So in the above example I would go to A.

How can I write in the dial plan if contains, pass?

Surprisingly I can’t find a POS function, but if you know that there a no regular expression meta characters, you could use the β€œ:” operator, otherwise use STRREPLACE with an empty string, and see if the length changes.
