how to see the call status in Vicidial via API?
0 0
There are 2 APIs to get the particular call status

First API to get the Call ID for specific agent's call



agent_user=--AGENT EXTENSION--
source=description of what originated the API call (maximum 20 characters)
user=with permission level >= 7 with report access

Second API to get the call status as per the above call id


call_id=XXX (will get from above API)
agent_user=--AGENT EXTENSION--
source=description of what originated the API call (maximum 20 characters)
user=with permission level >= 7 with report access
