We just added a new carrier (bandwidth.com) to our A2Billing server. When bandwidth passes us a call they prepend a "+" in front of the DID. How do I configure A2Billing to either ignore or remove the "+" before attempting to process the DID? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi

Strip it in the asterisk dial plan before passing the call into A2Billing.

Thanks for the quick response. Can you provide an example as to which file to edit and how?

Found through a quick search of Google. I guess it depends on whether you use FreePBX or hand edit all your configs without the use of a GUI, like FreePBX.

In your case, you would be editing extensions_a2billing.conf, and working with the a2billing-did context.

here is an (untested) sample that could be modified for your use

Code:
;Remove leading + when number called begins with a + sign
[a2billing-did]

exten => _+X.,1,Goto(call-a2billing-did,${EXTEN:1},1)
exten => _X.,1,Goto(call-a2billing-did,${EXTEN},1)

;Call A2Billing.php


[call-a2billing-did]

exten => _X.,1,DeadAGI(a2billing.php,did,1)
exten => _X.,n,Hangup()


This will remove a + when there is one, and do nothing to the dialstring when no plus is present.
