Chapter1.Admin Guide

1.1.Overview

UAC REDIRECT - User Agent Client redirection - module enhance OpenSIPS with the functionality of being able to handle (interpret, filter, log and follow) redirect responses ( 3xx replies class).

UAC REDIRECT module offer stateful processing, gathering the contacts from all 3xx branches of a call.

The module provide a powerful mechanism for selecting and filtering the contacts to be used for the new redirect:

  • number based - limits like the number of total contacts to be used or the maximum number of contacts per branch to be selected.

  • Regular Expression based - combinations of deny and accept filters allow a strict control of the contacts to be used for redirection.

When selecting from a 3xx branch the contacts to be used, the contacts will be ordered and prioritized based on the q value.

1.2.Dependencies

1.2.1.OpenSIPS Modules

The following modules must be loaded before this module:

  • TM - Transaction Module, for accessing replies.

  • ACC - Accounting Module, but only if the logging feature is used.

1.2.2.External Libraries or Applications

The following libraries or applications must be installed before running OpenSIPS with this module loaded:

  • None

1.3.Exported Parameters

1.3.1.default_filter (string)

The default behavior in filtering contacts. It may be accept or deny.

The default value is accept.

Example1.1.Set default_filter module parameter

...
modparam("uac_redirect","default_filter","deny")
...
				

1.3.2.deny_filter (string)

The regular expression for default deny filtering. It make sens to be defined on only if the default_filter parameter is set to accept. All contacts matching the deny_filter will be rejected; the rest of them will be accepted for redirection.

The parameter may be defined only one - multiple definition will overwrite the previous definitions. If more regular expression need to be defined, use the set_deny_filter() scripting function.

This parameter is optional, it's default value being NULL.

Example1.2.Set deny_filter module parameter

...
modparam("uac_redirect","deny_filter",".*@siphub\.net")
...
				

1.3.3.accept_filter (string)

The regular expression for default accept filtering. It make sens to be defined on only if the default_filter parameter is set to deny. All contacts matching the accept_filter will be accepted; the rest of them will be rejected for redirection.

The parameter may be defined only one - multiple definition will overwrite the previous definitions. If more regular expression need to be defined, use the set_accept_filter() scripting function.

This parameter is optional, it's default value being NULL.

Example1.3.Set accept_filter module parameter

...
modparam("uac_redirect","accept_filter",".*@siphub\.net")
...
				

1.4.Exported Functions

1.4.1. set_deny_filter(filter,flags)

Sets additional deny filters. Maximum 6 may be combined. This additional filter will apply only to the current message - it will not have a global effect.

Parameters:

  • filter (string) - regular expression

  • flags (string)

    Default or previous added deny filter may be reset depending of the parameter value:

    • reset_all - reset both default and previous added deny filters;

    • reset_default - reset only the default deny filter;

    • reset_added - reset only the previous added deny filters;

    • empty - no reset, just add the filter.

This function can be used from FAILURE_ROUTE.

Example1.4.set_deny_filter usage

...
set_deny_filter(".*@domain2.net","reset_all");
set_deny_filter(".*@domain1.net","");
...
				

1.4.2. set_accept_filter(filter,flags)

Sets additional accept filters. Maximum 6 may be combined. This additional filter will apply only to the current message - it will not have a global effect.

Parameters:

  • filter (string) - regular expression

  • flags (string)

    Default or previous added deny filter may be reset depending of the parameter value:

    • reset_all - reset both default and previous added accept filters;

    • reset_default - reset only the default accept filter;

    • reset_added - reset only the previous added accept filters;

    • empty - no reset, just add the filter.

This function can be used from FAILURE_ROUTE.

Example1.5.set_accept_filter usage

...
set_accept_filter(".*@domain2.net","reset_added");
set_accept_filter(".*@domain1.net","");
...
				

1.4.3. get_redirects([max_total], [max_branch])

The function may be called only from failure routes. It will extract the contacts from all 3xx branches and append them as new branches. Note that the function will not forward the new branches, this must be done explicitly from script.

How many contacts (in total and per branch) are selected depends on the max_total and max_branch parameters:

  • max_total (int, optional) - max overall number of contacts to be selected

  • max_branch (int, optional) - max number of contacts per branch to be selected

Both max_total and max_branch default to 0 (unlimited).

NOTE that during the selection process, each set of contacts from a specific branch are ordered based on q value.

This function can be used from FAILURE_ROUTE.

Example1.6.get_redirects usage

...
# no restrictions
get_redirects();
...
# no limits per branch, but not more than 6 overall contacts
get_redirects(6);
...
# max 2 contacts per branch, but no overall limit
get_redirects(, 2);
...
				

1.5.Script Example

Example1.7.Redirection script example

loadmodule "modules/sl/sl.so"
loadmodule "modules/usrloc/usrloc.so"
loadmodule "modules/registrar/registrar.so"
loadmodule "modules/tm/tm.so"
loadmodule "modules/acc/acc.so"
loadmodule "modules/uac_redirect/uac_redirect.so"

modparam("usrloc", "db_mode",   0)

route{
	if (is_myself("$rd")) {

		if ($rm=="REGISTER") {
			save("location");
			exit;
		};

		if (!lookup("location")) {
			sl_send_reply(404, "Not Found");
			exit;
		};
		# do redirect with accounting
		t_on_failure("2");
	} else {
		# just do redirect
		t_on_failure("1");
	}

	if (!t_relay()) {
		sl_reply_error();
	};
}

failure_route[1] {
	get_redirects("3:1");
	t_relay();
}

failure_route[2] {
	get_redirects("6:2", "300 redirect");
	t_relay();
}
