Creating a call through Asterisk Ami with Originate Dial

Wesley Wesley 2 years

In my last post, I have written about setting up the Asterisk Ami, in this post I would like to do something a bit more exciting with the Asterisk Ami. Let's try making our first call through the Asterisk Ami with the Originate Dial action.

Asterisk AMI Originate Dial

In order to use the Asterisk AMI Originate Dial action, we first need to have a basic understanding of the required syntaxes which can be found through the following command.

This will open the Originate documentation and provide an overview of the relevant options available.

The options within the [ ... ] brackets are optional values, meaning that alongside the action itself the only added value that needs to be set when issuing your AMI command are the following syntaxes.

# Example
Action: Originate
Channel: <value>

Making a Asterisk AMI Originate Call

The next step is to try it out. To do this, let's connect to the Asterisk Ami and log in by following the steps in our previous tutorial. Once connected, we will be able to start writing our AMI commands.

In this example, we'll make a call from our sip account 100 to 101. It is important to know that the syntaxes are case sensitive, so if your action command isn't working as expected, this may be a reason. Let's make our first call through the Asterisk Ami.

Action:Originate
Channel:PJSIP/100
Contect:phones
Exten:PJSIP/101
Priority:1

The result is that Asterisk calls extension 100 and upon the phone being answered, the system then tries to connect the call to extension 101.

That was it on the Asterism Ami Originate dial action.
