outgoing CID in the CDR instead of the extension that dialed and that
causes problems for reports.  What is the proper way to set outgoing CID
and keeping the original extension number in the CDR?
Surely the CDR field "clid" is your Caller ID, whereas the CDR field "src"
is the originating extension?
Another thought - if that doesn't automatically work for you (probably depends
on your dialplan / Asterisk setup), then how about setting:
in your dialplan sometime before you set the outbound Caller ID to whatever
your PSTN number is?

Then you have the internal extension number in accountcode and the external
CallerID in clid.


Unfortunately I use the accountcode field to put phones in different administrative groups and the software the company uses to make reports uses the src field to determine who made the call.
