Hi Mike,

Thanks for your answer.

I take it that apiExecute, translates to session.execute();?

I've tried, but so far I cannot manage to do the below all in the same 
script: The call to session.excute("conference", ...) doesn't return 
until the session hangs up. Therefore I don't know how to bridge, 
transfer or dial the next person into the conference.

I found 'bgapi', but I don't know how to incorporate this into a js script.

Quick snippet of what I've done.
Script "conference1.js":

var cSession = new 
while (cSession.ready()) {
     console_log("info", "put cSession in conf");
     cSession.execute("conference", "522 at default");
     console_log("info", "after put cSession in conf");

(end of script)

On the console, I run the script as:
 > jsrun conference1.js.

I only get the second 'console_log' until hangup.

Cheers, Birgit
