Change calling number/external mask of CUTI Call

Level 1
Level 1

NOTICE: I've reposted this question in a more appropriate spot:

I'm using the CUTI (Cisco Unity Connection Telephony Interface) API to make internal calls. I can successfully make calls and play uploaded Audio clips. I'm also using the AXL API to change a given extension's 'Forward All' so that I can call out. For example:

I have internal ext 1111 with its external masked being 123-456-7890. If I set 1111 to forward to 111-222-3333 then when I have CUTI call 1111, 111-222-3333 receives a call from an unknown source. If I call 111-222-3333 directly from 1111 (not using CUTI or forwarding) then 111-222-3333 sees 123-456-7890 as the caller ID. 

I see there being 2 potential solutions:

 1. I somehow assign the CUTI call its own ext and mask

 2. I set up our phone system so that it does not forward the original caller's caller ID, but the last used one.

I'd prefer solution 1 but will take solution 2 if need be. 

If it helps, checking the CDR of CUTI's calls shows its Call Number to be null. 

Thank you for any help.

As this is related to use of an API I’d recommend you to post your question over on DevNet as that is a better suited place for this type of question.

Thank you for the heads up. For anyone curious here is a link to my repost in the corrected spot:

I hope you are referring to Cisco Unity Connection Telephony Interface (CUTI)

I think the first option will be better, but I am not if it's doable.
