No, there is no automatic coordination mechanism between AsyncAGI and
AMI. In fact, AsyncAGI doesn't know *which* AMI session is even
managing the channels - it just waits for the appropriate AMI action
to come across and signal something to the channels.

Your external application would have to manage this process. A simple
solution would be to use an AMI library that supports automatic
reconnects. On a reconnect, ask Asterisk for the current channels; if
any exist, handle their recovery either by determining their
application state or by releasing them back to the dialplan.
