How to simulate *98 from outbound

I’d like to have an inbound DID that has the same effect as dialling *98 from inside the office.

Where do I point the destination to? Is it a custom app?

easy way is to

Misc Destination---->>>>Give a description (VmLogin)
Under Dail—>>> *98

leave feature code as trhe default

Now you use it in IVR / Callback …whatever… Internal IVR whatever

Misc Destination
will take care of that

Method #1: You could create a “custom” extension (look for “custom” in the pulldown where you’d normally select a sip or iax extension), and then in the “Dial” string put this:

Local/*[email protected]

Then point your DID at the extension you just created (I think you can do this in the extension setup itself).

Method #2: Make an inbound route for the DID and under “Set Destination”, make a Custom App the destination, and set it to something like

custom-from-internal,*98,1

I believe this will get you what you want. Remember that the context name MUST contain the word “custom”. If this doesn’t work, try adding this to extensions-custom.conf:

[custom-from-internal]
include => from-internal

One or both of the above SHOULD work.
