[Freeswitch-users] Adding SIP Headers in Javascript

Not sure if you still need help with this but could you post some more of your javascript code? Something about this line is off to me but maybe it makes sense in the grander scheme of things.
    var diversionHeader = 'sip_h_Diversion=<sip:' + $destination_number + '@pbx.example.org<http://pbx.example.org>>;privacy=off;reason=unconditional;counter=1;screen=no';

I have not used javascript with freeswitch in a little while, so I might be totally wrong but did you declare $destination_number? Because its possible its undefined if you didn’t declare that specifically equal to the value you passed in via args and thus javascript does you a solid and makes the whole string undefined which sets the sip_h_Diversion to null which is why it isn’t exporting. Maybe try argv[3] or argv[2] (console them out I am not sure which one it’ll be) instead of $destination_number in your concatenation?

If that isn’t it and you are still having an issue we can try some other stuff.

Subject: [Freeswitch-users] Adding SIP Headers in Javascript

Quick Version:  Is there some special way to set custom SIP headers when you are bridging a call from Javascript instead of XML?

Full Details:
We am using Voice Operator Panel (VOP) as a receptionist console.  We have multiple external numbers that all funnel into a few receptionist desks.  If I add a SIP Diversion header, then VOP will use that to show the receptionist which number the caller dialed to reach them, which would help things out a lot.

If I add it in an XML dialplan and then do a direct bridge to one of the receptionist numbers, it works great (snip of working direct dialplan):

<action application="set" data="sip_h_Diversion=<sip:${destination_number}@pbx.example.org<mailto:destination_number%7D at pbx.example.org>>;privacy=off;reason=unconditional;counter=1;screen=no"/>
<action application="bridge" data="user/1000 at pbx.example.org<mailto:1000 at pbx.example.org>"/>

The problem is I need a bit of advanced logic to figure out which receptionist are online and then ring those, then fail over to other numbers and ultimately IVR if no one answers, so I instead pass calls to them off to javascript, so the bridge line above becomes something link:

<action application="javascript" data="${jslib}/frontdesk.js ${dialed_extension} ${domain_name} ${destination_number}" />

I've tried setting the SIP header in the XML above the javascript line and then exporting it
    <action application="set" data="sip_h_Diversion=<sip:${destination_number}@pbx.example.org<mailto:destination_number%7D at pbx.example.org>>;privacy=off;reason=unconditional;counter=1;screen=no"/>
        <action application="export" data="sip_h_Diversion" />

and setting it in the Javascript:

    var diversionHeader = 'sip_h_Diversion=<sip:' + $destination_number + '@pbx.example.org<http://pbx.example.org>>;privacy=off;reason=unconditional;counter=1;screen=no';


but in both cases (or with both in place), the SIP header is never written.

Is there some magic to setting SIP headers in Javascript?  I can't seem to find any examples or documentation about it.
