[Freeswitch-users] mod_conference: Any way to pass conference PIN in the URI?

Hi all,

Part of an app I'm working on has a web UI for managing conferences on a 
FreeSWITCH instance. One of the goals in this effort is to allow a 
conference host to invite participants. We had initially used the 'api 
conference dial/bgdial' commands, but unfortunately we ran into some 
problems (we needed to provide credentials to our SIP proxy, among other 

So what we're doing now is inviting the person with a REFER. The 
conference owner enters a phone extension/SIP URI and the remote party's 
phone rings. When the remote party answers the call, it then REFERs 
their phone to call the FreeSWITCH conference. If the conference 
requires a PIN, then, obviously they get prompted for a PIN.

Here's the million dollar question: Is there any way to pass along the 
conference PIN as a URI parameter or something like that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

-- Joe
