I have set up an inbound route for a phone number that I’m going to give to a few exclusive people. To keep track on it I would ik to send myself a email every time the inbound route is triggered or maybe do a trigger by http to my external system and from there send a email. Would something like this be possisble trough the GUI of freePBX?
You can set up a custom CID Lookup Source (Admin → CallerID Lookup Sources) that makes an HTTP(S) request to your external system and is called by the Inbound Route.
I can’t think of an all-GUI way to send the email directly, but you could create a Custom Destination pointing to code like this: [sendemail] exten => s,1,system(put shell command to send your email here) exten => s,n,return
CID Superfecta’s primary purpose is to match a CID name to a number. It’s necessary to configure “trunk provided” to the scheme as well so that the CID details provided by the trunk will be used for the call.
Hi Stewared, just wanted to let you know I build your first option and it works. It created a rest service that receives the [NUMBER] and sends me a whatsapp message to inform me about the gate opening. Thank you for your help.
