Name

Suffix() — Appends trailing digits to the current extension

Synopsis

    Suffix(digits)

Appends the digit string specified by digits to the channel’s associated extension and continues processing at the next priority for the new extension. So, for example, if priority 1 of extension 555 is Suffix(1212), 1212 will be appended to 555 and the next step executed will be priority 2 of extension 5551212. If you switch into an extension that has no priority n+1 (where n is the current priority), the PBX will treat it as though the user dialed an invalid extension.

Always returns 0.

               exten => 555,1,Suffix(1212)
    exten => 5551212,2,SayDigits(${EXTEN})
