Create a Selective Call Forwarding Rule for a Hunt Group

Create a selective call forwarding rule for the designated hunt group.

A selective call forwarding rule for a hunt group allows calls to be forwarded or not forwarded to the designated number, based on the defined criteria.

Note that the list of existing call forward rules is available in the hunt group's call forwarding settings.

Configuring a hunt group requires a full or user administrator auth token with a scope of spark-admin:telephony_config_write.

NOTE: The Call Forwarding Rule ID will change upon modification of the Call Forwarding Rule name.
