Syntax

Bridge(channel,[options])
Arguments
  • channel - The current channel is bridged to the channel identified by the channel name, channel name prefix, or channel uniqueid.
  • options

    • p - Play a courtesy tone to channel.

    • F( context^exten^priority ) - When the bridger hangs up, transfer the bridged party to the specified destination and start execution at that location.

      • context
      • exten
      • priority
    • F - When the bridger hangs up, transfer the bridged party to the next priority ofthe current extension and start execution at that location.

    • h - Allow the called party to hang up by sending the * DTMF digit.

    • H - Allow the calling party to hang up by pressing the * DTMF digit.

    • k - Allow the called party to enable parking of the call by sending the DTMF sequence defined for call parking in features.conf.

    • K - Allow the calling party to enable parking of the call by sending the DTMF sequence defined for call parking in features.conf.

    • L(x[:y][:z]) - Limit the call to x ms. Play a warning when y ms are left. Repeat the warning every z ms. The following special variables can be used with this option:

      • LIMIT_PLAYAUDIO_CALLER - Play sounds to the caller. yes|no (default yes)
      • LIMIT_PLAYAUDIO_CALLEE - Play sounds to the callee. yes|no
      • LIMIT_TIMEOUT_FILE - File to play when time is up.

    • n - Do not answer the channel automatically before bridging.
      Additionally, to prevent a bridged channel (the target of the Bridge application) from answering, the 'BRIDGE_NOANSWER' variable can be set to inhibit answering.

    • S(x) - Hang up the call after x seconds after the called party has answered the call.

    • t - Allow the called party to transfer the calling party by sending the DTMF sequence defined in features.conf.

    • T - Allow the calling party to transfer the called party by sending the DTMF sequence defined in features.conf.

    • w - Allow the called party to enable recording of the call by sending the DTMF sequence defined for one-touch recording in features.conf.

    • W - Allow the calling party to enable recording of the call by sending the DTMF sequence defined for one-touch recording in features.conf.
