Places a channel "on hold" in the switch, instead of in the phone. Allows for a number of different options, including:
- Set caller in a place where the channel won't be hungup on, while waiting for someone to talk to.
- Generic "hold" mechanism, where you transfer a caller to it.
Please note that to retrieve a call that has been "parked", you'll have to bridge to them or transfer the call to a valid location.
Also, remember that parking a call does NOT supply music on hold or any other media. Park is quite literally a way to put a call in limbo until you you bridge/uuid_bridge or transfer/uuid_transfer it.
For a different means of using 'park', see mod_fifo.
From the Dialplan
Note that the park application takes no arguments, so the data attribute can be omitted in the definition.
- mod_valet_parking - Park calls with a "slot number" which can later be retrieved by that number.
