[asterisk-users] Pattern Extension not working in Dialplan

The first issue I see is you are attempting to insert your pattern match in
the middle of your 's' extension, That's going to break your 's' extension.

The second issue is that you are matching on XX which will match two
digits, You need to match on _X instead if you are attempting to match on
the number 8.

I recommend you look into 'read' instead of trying to do a pattern match.

> Hi,

> exten => s,n,WaitExten(10)
> exten => _XX,1,Set(AGE=${EXTEN})    ;; this line is not executing, instead
> dialplan is terminating with error given below.
> exten => s,n,NoOp(${AGE})
> exten => s,n,GotoIf($[${LEN(${AGE})} > 0]?notEmpty)
> exten => s,n,Goto(s,1)
> exten => s(notEmpty),n,Background(my/thank-you)
> exten => s,n,Wait(1)
> When I receive call and tries to enter the digits (86 lets say), it only
> accept just first digit and terminates even before considering second digit.
> Error message :
>  WARNING[5726][C-0000000a]: pbx.c:6696 __ast_pbx_run: Invalid extension
> '8', but no rule 'i' or 'e' in context 'testmacro'
> Please suggest what might be wrong.
