[Freeswitch-users] Setting effecting_caller_id_name

Is fix_cidnam_plus setting it's data inline? I think it must update the caller_id_name var inline, to make it possible to do a regex on that variable right afterwards in the dialplan.

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.

Subject: Setting effecting_caller_id_name

And while I’m asking dumb questions…

When doing CNAM dips from opencnam.com<http://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 lookup">

        <action application="set" data="effective_caller_id_name=Wireless/Unknown"/>



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,
