our secretaries had that creative idea, to send calls coming in as "anonymous" to a given voicemailbox.
Base is a H323 router with ISDN connectivity, callmanager and unity.other
I started to play around with voice translation rules that manipulate the calling number from ^$ to other some fake number. Then i wanted to send that fake number via a CTI RP to Unity.
So fare so good, but i can not get a proper translation rule / dial-peer matching for that use case. The problem to me seems that the called number is always choosen for the decision of a dial-peer instead of the calling.
Aprreciate any help. Attached is a snip of what i did so fare.
Depending on your design you can try these two options below on CUCM:
1. translation pattern with option “Route Next Hop By Calling Party Number”
2. calling party transformation masks for incoming calls (you can also modify calling number on the gateway to set it to specific pattern and then use calling party transformation mask on the CUCM for the specific pattern as it will not break up other calls)
For outbound dial-peer matching only the dial-string is used (in your case currently since its POTS to IP). "Answer-address" is part of inbound matching rule so what you see if the expected behavior. Another, I have neber seen a Anonymous as a CLID on ISDN. That is common on SIP. Are you talking about CLID or CNAME ?
