[Synopsis] Authenticate a user [Description] Authenticate(password[|options[|maxdigits]]): This application asks the caller to enter a given password in order to continue dialplan execution. If the password begins with the '/' character, it is interpreted as a file which contains a list of valid passwords, listed 1 password per line in the file. When using a database key, the value associated with the key can be anything. Users have three attempts to authenticate before the channel is hung up. If the passsword is invalid, the 'j' option is specified, and priority n+101 exists, dialplan execution will continnue at this location. Options: a - Set the channels' account code to the password that is entered d - Interpret the given path as database key, not a literal file j - Support jumping to n+101 if authentication fails m - Interpret the given path as a file which contains a list of account codes and password hashes delimited with ':', listed one per line in the file. When one of the passwords is matched, the channel will have its account code set to the corresponding account code in the file. r - Remove the database key upon successful entry (valid with 'd' only) maxdigits - maximum acceptable number of digits. Stops reading after maxdigits have been entered (without requiring the user to press the '#' key). Defaults to 0 - no limit - wait for the user press the '#' key.
