[Freeswitch-users] Is there a way to call sofia_contact from chatplan lua script

I have a lua script that does this:

function extension_registered(domain_name, sip_profile, extension)
api = freeswitch.API();
 result = api:execute("sofia_contact",
if (result == "error/user_not_registered") then
 return false;
return true;

IIRC, you can hardcode the sip_profile to * and just drop the @domain_name
