[asterisk-users] Queue of automated members

We're using Asterisk 14.7.6, and we're able to route particular extensions
to a corresponding automated member via SIP. Each extension has its own
specific content, and all the automated members are configured to handle
any of these extensions. We would like to achieve some scaling by putting
all the members in a single queue.

Here are some problems we've run into:

1) How should these members be declared in queues.conf? We couldn't find
much about automated members in the Asterisk Book (
http://the-asterisk-book.com/1.6/queues.conf.html ) nor the wiki (

For example, all of our extensions start with 773, and we're starting with
two automated members (declared in sip.conf as CB1 and CB2).

member => SIP/773X at CB1
member => SIP/773X at CB2

Is this a valid way to declare these members and the extensions they can

2) When I configure the queue that way, it looks like calls don't make it
to the automated agents. Is there a way to inspect Asterisk to see what
extension is being provided to the agents by the queue?
