How to send CLID only for certain numbers

I am running a call manager express system and the client would like to send caller id when dialling certain numbers but restrict CLID when dialling others. I have a fractional E1 to the PSTN for incoming and outgoing calls.

I was thinking of doing this on the dial peer by using a prefix code and then stripping it using a translation rule and enabling/disabling the clid eg.

Dial-peer voice 10 pots

destination pattern 9888T

translation-profile outgoing

clid enable

So therefore if the client wanted to show their clid when making an outgoing call they would dial 9888 (which will get stripped by the translation rule) and their clid would be displayed.

If they did not want it displayed they would dial as normal.

Am i on the right track here or is there a better way of doing this ?

Your solution will probably work, alternatively you could use that same/or another translation profile to add the manipulation profile of the calling number.

something like this:

voice translation-rule 3

rule 1 /123/ /456/

voice translation-profile profile1

translate calling 3

dial-peer voice 10 pots

translation-profile outgoing profile1
