It sounds like a dialplan function ISCAMPEDON(Technology/Resource) would
be useful in that regard, unless every other application that sends a
call to a device was updated to offer CCBS instead of actually dialing a
camped on device.


I'm assuming that would mean writing an "incoming" cc_agent_policy???
In the incoming call handling dialplan you would
Set(CALLCOMPLETION(cc_agent_policy)=incoming).  That agent would just
place them in some sort of holding area (a campground?) with music on
hold, instead of hanging up the call.  If the timer expires the call
would be sent to a timeout_macro.

Is that the right thinking in regards to CCSS?
