I’ve been banging my head against the wall all day on this. I’m trying to send a call through a ring group with confirm call enabled. And from there to an extension with follow me enabled. I don’t want confirm call to be on for all of the follow me calls, on the ones that come from the ring group. But any time I send a call to the extension with confirm enabled on the ring group, as soon as I press 1, I get the “I’m sorry, the incoming call is no longer available or has been answered elsewhere.”
I’m running asterisk 16.3.0, my followme and ringgroups modules are both updated.
Confirm call does seem to work when putting the external number in the ring group, or by dialing the extension with follow me. The problems happens when you put an extension with an external number in follow me in the ring group.
Edit: I was able to reproduce this on another server with up-to-date modules and running asterisk 16.3.0. But when testing on a server with only the ringgroups and followme modules updates, I didn’t encounter this problem. Maybe it’s due to a combination of those three things?
I could be totally wrong here, but I’m pretty sure that those are two different problems. Maybe they were similar enough to be put together? I’m definitely still encountering the problem in core 18.104.22.168.
Maybe the changes from 22.214.171.124 caused the problem?
Just to clarify, if you take a look at the description of the report you posted, it describes a problem where the “too-late” message is not played.
If you look at report I posted, you’ll see it describes the opposite. It describes how when a call is sent from a queue (or a ringgroup) to an extension with follow me, the “too-late” announcement is always played. I suspect this is a side effect of the fix for the initial bug. In the bug report, it appears that work was being done to fix it, but then it got marked as a duplicate for some reason.
Thanks for letting me know about the update, unfortunately, I just tried and it still doesn’t seem to work. I’m on 126.96.36.199, and I still the too-late message when trying to press 1 to confirm a call. Is it possible the fix implemented was for the Queue/follow me bug, rather than the ring group/follow me bug?
I’ve never worked with queues, but I didn’t think it would be too complicated. However, I can’t get a queue to ring through to an extension with follow me. I do have the agent restriction set to “call as dialed” but that doesn’t seem to solve the problem. So I can’t tell if the same problem is occurring with my queues.
I do. I have a few things, but the one that could potentially be causing a problem is a blacklist program I have that alerts me if a call is made to a number on a blacklist. These numbers are known for being called when a system is compromised, so I want to be alerted right away.
Could that potentially impact the queue from calling external numbers?
