Dial a call and add to conference room

Hi there! I am trying to set up a flow to dial a call from CLI and add it to a conference room when it´s answered.
I was able to start a call from CLI with this command

/usr/sbin/asterisk -r -x “console dial 9001@from-internal”

Please your help!
Thanks in advance!

/usr/sbin/asterisk -r -x "channel originate Local/1234@from-internal extension 4321@from-internal"

where 1234 is the extension to be called and 4321 is the conference room number.

Thanks @Stewart1 !!! it´s works!!!

/usr/sbin/asterisk -r -x “channel originate Local/9001@from-internal extension 8000@from-internal”

Works fine!

Is there any way to wait for the user to answer and then route the call to the bridge?


You should originate the call to an IVR that answers the channel and plays an appropriate announcement, then makes the callee do DTMF input before going to the conf bridge. It will prevent voicemail and other undesirable recordings from going directly into the conference.

Thanks a lot!
