Dialplan Scripts

This section allows you to manage Dialplan Scripts - named groups of dialplan commands that allow you to use Configuration Manager to "define" the dialplan rules used when processing calls.

Scripts are fundamental building blocks in Thirdlane and are used in Bulk Generator, User Extensions , Feature Codes, Voice Menus, Inbound Routes, Outbound Routes, and Hunt Lists, where they are associated with User Extensions, Feature Codes and called numbers. Dialing an extension or a feature code executes an associated script.

Configuration Manager ships with many useful scripts which users can clone and modify as needed. Users can also create their own scripts to extend PBX functionality.

Scripts shipped with Configuration Manager are protected and cannot be modified or deleted.

Select scripts that can be used for allows you to limit listed scripts to the scripts that are intended for use in Inbound Routes, User Extensions, Feature Codes, etc.

exten => s,n,GotoIf($["${MACRO_EXTEN}" = "s"]?dial)
exten => s,n,Set(__DIALED_NUMBER=${MACRO_EXTEN})
exten => s,n(dial),Macro(tl-dialout-base,${ARG1},${ARG2},${ARG3},${ARG4},${ARG5})
