New Web Callback Feature

Due to popular request, mainly from Voxalot refugees, a new web callback feature is now available for SIPSorcery Premium and Professional users. The feature is available on the AJAX portal. Unlike the original call manager approach (outline at the bottom of this page) which initiated a Ruby dial plan execution and did not require authentication the new mechanism DOES require authentication and sets up a call between two pre-configured dial strings rather than executing an existing dial plan.

The new mechanism is simpler to use but is not as powerful and flexible as the original approach. Hopefully the new mechanism is closer to what Voxalot refugees are used to and will allow any saved Voxalot callbacks to be used.

There is help available but the mechanism should be fairly intuitive to use.  The way it works is that you enter in two dial strings (dial strings are the same format as those that can be used in sys.Dial in Ruby dial plans and can include multiple call legs and other options) and a description. After that it’s just a matter of clicking on “place call” and the SIPSorcery server will attempt to call the first leg and if it gets an answer will then call the second leg and finally bridge the calls together with a SIP re-INVITE.
