setting skype account property 'availability'

Postby smk » Fri Mar 18, 2011 1:49 pm

Good afternoon all.

According to the README:

Skype account properties are stored on the Skype P2P network and include
things like availability, birthday, and geographical information. These
settings can be set both in chan_skype.conf, and via the
SKYPE_ACCOUNT_PROPERTY() dialplan function. For example:

exten => ...,1,Set(SKYPE_ACCOUNT_PROPERTY(jbond,availability)=Away)

Valid availability settings are "Offline", "Online", "Away", "Not
Available", "Do Not Disturb", "Invisible", and "Skype Me"

I'm unable to set the property 'availability' in chan_skype.conf. The following warning is given:
[Mar 18 12:36:44] WARNING[7720] chan_skype.c: Unknown config option availability for user XXXXXXX, line 63

I was able to set the property successfully to 'Away' in using the dialplan function above, but not to 'Invisible'.
After setting the property to invisible, when I do some debugging out of ${SKYPE_CALL_PROPERTY(availability)}, it returns "7". I'm not sure what status this lines up to, but either way, it's not being marked as "Invisible" in other clients.

My requirement are to have the 'availability' property to be set to Invisible on startup.

Please advise!
