last_sched_id is set to the task ID of the broadcast.
TODO See TODOs in mod_dptools: sched transfer.
In the dialplan
<action application="sched_broadcast" data="[+]<time> [<dialplan_app>::]<path> <call_leg>" />
This syntax is also valid as of commit 116ebc0:
In the dialplan
<action application="sched_broadcast" data="@<time> <uuid> [<dialplan_app>::]<path> <call_leg> " />
As an API call
sched_broadcast [[+]<time> | @<time>] <uuid> [<dialplan_app>::]<path> <call_leg>
TODO Added the
[<dialplan_app>::] part to the syntax based on the examples in section 2. but didn't check whether it works.
|[+]<time>||Time in seconds.If used with + then the call will be hung up after that number of seconds.If used without + then the given value is considered the number of seconds since the epoch, 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC||+60 (hang up after 1 minute)2003336820 (hang up at Jun 25 2033 11:27 AM)|
|@<time>||Schedule a broadcast for every <time> seconds for the duration of a call.See Jira issue FS-5661 or 2. Examples section below.||@60|
|<uuid>||The unique identifier (UUID) of the call leg. See Channel Variables.||f2120667-3cd6-42bc-8be6-8cf4207cf6bc|
|<path>||Specify the path of the audio file to broadcast.||/tmp/main.wav|
|<call_leg>||Specify the call leg to broadcast on.Valid value arealegblegbothbleg might mean "other leg" even if the leg this is set on (e.g., via an export) really is the B leg.||aleg|
2.1 Play audio in a channel to all participants after 1 hour
<action application="sched_broadcast" data="+3600 /tmp/howdy.wav both"/>
This one with "playback" may help if the above does not work.
<action application="sched_broadcast" data="+3600 playback::/tmp/howdy.wav both"/>
2.2 Play audible "beep" every N seconds
Quoting Jira issue FS-5661:
One example for usage is jurisdictions that require an audible "beep" every N seconds while a call is being recorded.
<action application="sched_broadcast" data="@60 /tmp/call_recorded.wav both"/>
