Dial IP point - PJSIP


I’m sorry if this question has been asked before but I could not find a clear answer regarding the DIAL application when using PJSIP.

Is it possible to simply dial an extension via an IP address (be it another PBX/SBC) without defining it as an endpoint?

For instance, I am trying to route calls via a SIP-SIP trunk between an Asterisk and Cisco router. This was very to achieve up to version 11.0 but now it seems we can only dial via a defined endpoint. Unfortunately, I could not manage to define a Cisco SBC as an endpoint without outbound auth mechanism (and I need it as does not use credentials for call routing).
