[asterisk-users] Length of dial string

Hi Dovid
Yes was one of the options but as the required list is dynamic becomes very
messy - and all combinations problem - where as "call all workers job xxx"
is what is needed so the ability to call 20+ numbers is what is needed - agi
does a database search for all jobx workers and constructs a dialstring with
SIP, DAHDI and Local devices. 
Can someone tell me where to find maximum string length for the dial data in
the DIAL command

Why not use local extensions? You can do something like this.
Exten =>
s,1,Dial(Local/set1 at call_all&Local/set2 at call_all&Local/set3 at call_all)

Exten => set1,1,Dial(SIP/100&SIP/101&SIP/102&SIP/103&SIP/104&SIP/105
Exten => set1,1,Dial(SIP/106&SIP/107&SIP/108&SIP/109&SIP/110&SIP/111
Exten => set1,1,Dial(SIP/112&SIP/113&SIP/114&SIP/1015&SIP/116&SIP/117

Hi all

as per the new release notice for 13.33.0 received today - can anyone advise
me the max limit of the string to the Dial Command - see 
*       [ASTERISK-27946
<BLOCKED::https://issues.asterisk.org/jira/browse/ASTERISK-27946> ] - 
                dial (API): Storage of dialed target uses AST_MAX_EXTENSION
when it shouldn't

I have been fighting with this issue for months trying to find a solution I
need to call 20+ devices at the same time so dial strings are very long I
cant really use a queue(ringall) which was my original idea as the customer
needs different groups for virtually every call some of which are simple sip
devices and others have to be local devices (Internal and External CLIs).
