1. Overview

   Module for updating ISUP encapsulated in SIP (SIP-T/SIP-I)

   The sipt module can be used to update various ss7 headers contained
   inside a message.

2. Dependencies

   The module depends on the following modules (in the other words the
   listed modules must be loaded before this module):
     * none

3. Functions

   3.1. sipt_destination(destination, hops, nai[, terminator=1])
   3.2. sipt_set_bci_1(charge_indicator, called_status, called_category,
          e2e_indicator)

   3.3. sipt_set_calling(origin, nai, presentation, screening)
   3.4. sipt_forwarding(origin, nai)

3.1. sipt_destination(destination, hops, nai[, terminator=1])

   updates the IAM in the body if it exists, setting the called party
   number to “destination” with the nature address specified in “nai” and
   decrementing the hop counter value if present. If the hop counter
   header is missing it will be added with the value of “hops”. If
   “terminator” is set to 1, then F will be appended to digit string to
   indicate the number is complete (default).

   Example 1.1. sipt_destination(destination, hops, nai) usage
...
# update the destination number to our current request uri,
# setting nature of address to international
$rU = "19495551234";
sipt_destination($rU, 31, 4);
...

3.2. sipt_set_bci_1(charge_indicator, called_status, called_category,
e2e_indicator)

   updates the first byte of the backward call indicator in the ACM or COT
   in the body if setting the Charge Indicator to “charge_indicator”, the
   Called party's status indicator in “called_status”, the Called party's
   category indicator in “called_category” and the End to End Method
   Indicator with the value of the value of “e2e_indicator”.

   Example 1.2. sipt_destination(destination, hops, nai) usage
...
# set bci for charging, subscriber free, ordinary, no e2e available
sipt_set_bci_1("2", "1", "1", "0");
...

3.3. sipt_set_calling(origin, nai, presentation, screening)

   updates the IAM in the body if it exists, setting (or adding) the
   calling party number to “origin” with the nature address specified in
   “nai” and setting the presentation and screening values to
   “presentation” and “screening”.

   Example 1.3. sipt_set_calling(origin, nai, presentation, screening)
   usage
...
# update the calling party to the value in the from header
sipt_set_calling($fU, 4, 0, 3);
...

3.4. sipt_forwarding(origin, nai)

   updates the IAM in the body if it exists, setting (or adding) the
   forwarding number to “origin” with the nature address specified in
   “nai”.

   Example 1.4. sipt_set_calling(origin, nai) usage
...
# update the forwarding number to the value in the from header
sipt_forwarfing($avp(s:forwarding_number), 3);
...
