I’m trying to re-write my voicemail check extension.

I formerly used the SIPPEER function to get the mailbox for a peer with

Is there a way to do this with PJSIP now that I’ve converted over?

I see a function PJSIP_ENDPOINT and it has a mailboxes subset but I’m not retrieving any data from it when I query it.

    What is your pjsip.conf like for the endpoint and AOR? (Where have you configured it). If specified on the AOR then it won’t be accessible via PJSIP_ENDPOINT and there is not, as of yet, a dialplan function for querying for AOR information.


  • Here’s my config, I am configuring the mailboxes as you see below in the aor.

    It looked like that was the recommended place to configure it?

    If I configure the mailboxes in the Endpoint then the PBX will be sending unsolicited MWI vs if I configure them in the AOR then my phones subscribe for MWI Correct?

    type=auth auth_type=userpass

    Correct. Since you are configuring on the AOR there is no current way to grab that information in the dialplan from the AOR.


  • Actually you can use the AST_SORCERY dialplan function function to retrieve any variable from any PJSIP object. AST_SORCERY(“res_pjsip”, “aor”,
    “myaor”, “mailboxes”)

  • Thank you George, That works.

    If anyone is curious here is what I’m doing for my mail checking extension.

    exten => *98,1,NoOP()
    same => n,Answer()
    same => n,Set(ENDPOINT=${CHANNEL(endpoint)}) ; Get the peer same => n,Set(MAILBOX=${PJSIP_ENDPOINT(${ENDPOINT},mailboxes)})
    same => n,ExecIf($[${ISNULL(${MAILBOX})} 1]?Set(MAILBOX=${AST_SORCERY(res_pjsip,aor,${ENDPOINT},mailboxes)}))
    same => n,ExecIf($[${ISNULL(${MAILBOX})} 0]?VoicemailMain(${MAILBOX},s))
    same => n,ExecIf($[${ISNULL(${MAILBOXCONTEXT})} 0]?VoicemailMain(@${MAILBOXCONTEXT}))
