It's sad that we cannot initiate meetme externally. Well I hope that one day Cisco would support it. Anyway, here's my issue. But before I go straight to my question, I thought I would need you give you some background information on what I wanted to get.
A user calls a DID number and this gets routed to CCX.
CCX prompts the user to enter a conference code (i.e. meetme #)
CCX collects the digits and compares. If it matches a pre-defined code, go ahead and connect to the conference. If not, ask the user to try again, etc.
Now we have about 10 meetme numbers in CUCM that have already been configured and working. These are all private DNs that only Cisco phones can call and they can only be called when they are already in a conference (initiated). If not, you’ll get fast busy. Okay, how does the script know if a meetme bridge is already open or not before letting the participants to join the conference? This is important because if I joint before the leader, I’ll get fast busy. So I would need to tell the script to hold on for minute to make sure that the leader has joined the conference first before letting me in. Could someone please tell me how I can achieve it in my script?
