Subject: [asterisk-users] Automatically unpause a paused queue memeber –
badidea?

I have some cases when I want to pause a queue member and automatically
unpause the queue member after a specified time.

Right now I am doing it by a AMI script, but was thinking if it is possible
to add a parameter to PauseQueueMember like,

PauseQueueMember([queuename],interface[,options[,reason[,time]]]) where time
will be how long (in seconds) the interface

will be paused. before brought back.

Maybe it is a bad idea, I dont know, what do you think?

I don’t think it’s a “bad” idea; Parking works on a similar basis.

One thought on - Automatically unpause a paused queue memeber – badidea?

  • Interesting. Mind sharing the rationale for needing this functionality? The only place pausing is typically called for is after call work such as logging which is handled by the wait time variable. Would this be used to limit the amount of wait time an agent could invoke in a particular invocation of the command to limit abuse?
