Description

Places a channel "on hold" in the switch, instead of in the phone. Allows for a number of different options, including:

  • Set caller in a place where the channel won't be hungup on, while waiting for someone to talk to.
  • Generic "hold" mechanism, where you transfer a caller to it.

Please note that to retrieve a call that has been "parked", you'll have to bridge to them or transfer the call to a valid location.

Also, remember that parking a call does *NOT* supply music on hold or any other media. Park is quite literally a way to put a call in limbo until you you bridge/uuid_bridge or transfer/uuid_transfer it.

For a different means of using 'park', see mod_fifo.

Example

From the Dialplan

 <action application="park"/>

Note that the park application takes no arguments, so the data attribute can be omitted in the definition.
