Our Cisco SPA phones are connected to Asterisk, and employees logon to the PBX by entering a pin to a IVR system. After authenticated the system remembers that user Bob is at phone 1 for example. If Bob receives a call the system routes this call to 'phone1'.
We would like to inform the user which user is currently logged on to any particilar phone. For example, we would like to be able to change the $USER variable, so we can change the text string next to the line button to the employee's name.
Is this possible using Asterisk's SIPAddHeader command? And if so, could anyone give me an example?
Thanks. Your solution is how I currently fixed it, but I was hoping for a less complex solution using extra SIP Headers, but I couldnt find anything usefull so I guess reconfiguring the phone using provisioning is the only way.
