How to dial a number using Asterisk and Python

I didn’t find any example in Python on how to Dial a number from an Asterisk server and link it to another channel. So here’s a quick code to do it. You just need to have a manager defined in your /etc/asterisk/manager.conf defined.

import socket
 
HOST="192.168.1.116"
PORT=5038
 
p = """Action: login
Events: off
Username: %(username)s
Secret: %(password)s
 
Action: originate
Channel: SIP/%(local_user)s
WaitTime: 60
CallerId: 600
Exten: %(phone_to_dial)s
Context: default
Priority: 1
 
Action: Logoff
"""
def click_to_call(phone_to_dial, username, password, local_user):
    pattern = p % {
            'phone_to_dial': phone_to_dial,
            'username': username,
            'password': password,
            'local_user': local_user}
 
    s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
    s.connect((HOST, PORT))
 
    data = s.recv(1024)
    for l in pattern.split('\n'):
        print "Sending>", l
        s.send(l+'\r\n')
        if l == "":
            data = s.recv(1024)
            print data
    data = s.recv(1024)
    s.close()
 
if __name__ == '__main__':
    click_to_call(phone_to_dial='123456789',
                  username='manager_login', password='yourpass',
                  local_user='600')

  1. It looks like there is a typo in pattern splitting (may be copy paste issue):

    pattern.split(‘\n’)

    Similarly:

    s.send(l+’\r\n’)

  2. import error
    >>> import ami
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “”, line 1, in
    File “.\ami.py”, line 58
    print “Sending>”, l
