Multiple Dynamic features with Asterisk Applicationmaps

Dynamic features are very useful for allowing users access to custom features during calls. These can be loaded individually via the dialplan, but in freepbx based solutions this will mean a bit of hacking of the dialplan using overides and making sure all still works afterwards, or as a global varible.

The easiest way is to load them as a global as is done with apprecord, But if you want to add lots of features then you will have to use a Application Map group. This is done by editing the features_applicationmap_custom.conf  file so it looks like below for example, at the top are your application maps then your group

testfeature => #9,callee,Playback,tt-monkeys 
calleehangup => #8,callee,Hangup()
callerhangup => #7,caller,Hangup()
testfeature => #9
calleehangup => #8
callerhangup => #7
apprecord => *1

DO NOT FORGET to add the apprecord to your group.

You then need to edit the globals_custom.conf file and add a line like below

DYNAMIC_FEATURES => mymapgroup

Then reload asterisk and issue the command “features show”

Dynamic Feature           Default Current
---------------           ------- -------
callerhangup              no def  #7     
calleehangup              no def  #8     
testfeature               no def  #9     
apprecord                 no def  *1     
Feature Groups:
===> Group: mymapgroup
===> --> apprecord (*1,caller,Macro,one-touch-record)
===> --> callerhangup (#7)
===> --> calleehangup (#8)

and to check that they are loaded as a global variable do “dialplan show globals” and near or at the top you will see:-


And thats all there is to it.
