[Freeswitch-users] Setting effecting_caller_id_name

If you put the $ at the end then it will try to match the entire string
instead of just the beginning of it, which won't work in this case.  Is
there a way to match just the beginning of the string in FS?

You need a $ after 'lookup' for it to be a regex.

And while I'm asking dumb questions.

When doing CNAM dips from opencnam.com, often you get a result of "Currently
running a lookup for phone 'xxxxxxxxxx'. on incoming calls, typically for
wireless or other unknown name callers and I wanted to change that to
"Wireless/Unknown"  Since caller_id_name is apparently read-only, I am
attempting to set effective_caller_id_name.  I put the following in
public.xml right below the "fix_cidnam_plus" entry, in other words after a
CNAM lookup has been performed.

   <extension name="fix_currently_running" continue="true">
      <condition field="caller_id_name" expression="^Currently running a
        <action application="set"

If I crafted my regex properly, then it should be matching on the first part
of the string and setting the variable appropriately.  Is
'effective_caller_id_name' the variable I should be setting?

Many thanks,
