string Set sip_refer_continue_after_reply channel (or global) variable to true to enable, before sending REFER using deflect() or uuid_deflect(). By default, FreeSWITCH will end the call after successfully sending out a REFER (with 200 OK in the body of subsequent NOTIFY messages)

When enabled, and when proxy-refer not in use, FreeSWITCH will process the REFER and set the final result in sip_refer_target_status_code,and provisional status in sip_refer_target_provisional_status_code. The call will stay up until explicitly ended.

Available since FreeSWITCH v1.10.7 release.

This is useful when testing rfc4579 REFER method to request a Focus to Add a New Resource to a Conference.
