Prepend CID#

The cf_prepend_cid module can be used to prepend static values to the Caller ID Name and Number for a call in callflows.

Configuration Values#


Validator for the prepend_cid callflow data object

Key Description Type Default Required Support Level
action If the action parameter is "reset" the caller-id-name and caller-id-number will be restored to their original values, if the value is "prepend" then the prepending will happen string('reset' | 'prepend') prepend false
apply_to Either "original" or "current", this specifies that the prefix's should be applied to the current caller-id's or the original values string('original' | 'current') current false
caller_id_name_prefix The prefix that should be applied to the caller-id-name string() "" false
caller_id_number_prefix The prefix that should be applied to the caller-id-number string() "" false
skip_module When set to true this callflow action is skipped, advancing to the wildcard branch (if any) boolean() false


  • After the callflow action is run, the original caller-id values will be stored in the original_cid_name and original_cid_number fields of the call.
  • When using "current" for the apply_to you can get into a situation where it will append the value multiple times if the callflow is included in a loop.
