Hello all. First let’s get this out of the way:
FreePBX version: 13.0.51
Asterisk version: 11.21.0
Digium D70 phones on firmware version: 126.96.36.199.73372
I’ve been struggling with the REST Apps on a group of 22 D70s. I’ve gotten most of my issues resolved, but thought I would throw the remaining ones out here to see if anyone has wisdom to contribute. I did roll back to Asterisk 11 from 13 and things settled down by an order of magnitude.
My only significant remaining issue is that when someone is on a call, and another call comes in to the ring group they are a member of, then that user cannot park the call. I was able to get them to successfully place the call on hold, then pick it up and they could then park it. I’m going to do some testing in a few hours and I’ll have more specific details on what the phones are doing when this happens.
Other issues less important but still would be nice to resolve:
It would be lovely to be able to edit the templates used for endpoint manager so that we could control how the phones are deployed more granularly. For example, I’d love the ability to change the subscription URI for a button. I have set one of the line buttons to DND and assigned the *76 to toggle DND. It would be great if I could set the subscription URI to *76 so that the line light status can follow DND for that user. In the same way, I’d love to be able to assign a slow amber blink to one of the status BLFs for an extension if that extension had DND on.
Also: in the REST Apps control panel, the “Hide Idle Screen Display” setting does not seem to be honored.
Thanks for your time!
