I am trying to use extensions.ael for a couple of things on a system that primarily uses FreePBX and extensions.conf to manage. I have setup the AEL file, added extensions to that file along with the macro's that we need and can't use in the .conf file, and I see in the logs that the AEL is being loaded, however the extensions listed there do not work. When I dial the extension, i still get the typical "call can not be completed as dialed" error as though the extension does not exist. I am not sure what I am missing here, but any ideas would be appreciated.
I am using the AEL to provide scripting for agent logins since the old agent functionality was removed in 1.4
