Hi Mike,

var res = apiExecute("originate", "sofia/gateway/westhawk/0662 
'&conference(25 at default)'");
console_log("info", "after apiExecute: " + res);

Well, that worked, thanks!

However, is there a way to create a session first, and then bridge, 
transfer or whatever to a conference?
Using a session object gives me the chance to use setHangupHook(). I 
need to do some db admin when the first user hangs up.

Also we might introduce TAD, so I need a time window between the call 
being answered and pushing it into the conference, so I can make sure it 
is a real person.

I tried extending the new Session command below with a 'conference' 
command, but that returned an error:

var cSession = new
'&conference(25 at default)'");

"You must call the session.originate method before calling this method! 

Cheers, Birgit
