Usage of the Alert-Info header

The SIP Alert-Info header must look like this:

Alert-Info: <>;info=alert-event;x-line-id=0


  • <> -> a dummy URL is required otherwise the specified file (wav format) will be downloaded
    • e.g. "Alert Internal Text": internal_calls -> info=internal_calls
  • x-line-id=0 -> part of the syntax -> not used, will be ignored
  • Note: Asterisk- Users may include the SIP Header this way (Attention: Use the quotation otherwise the semicolons are interpreted as comments!):
exten => s,n,SIPAddHeader("Alert-Info:<>\;info=alert-external\;x-line-id=0")
