Hints and Asterisk Realtime

Hello all.

Is there any way to make Asterisk read its “hints” configuration from a database using the ARA?

So instead of specifying:

exten => 3001,hint,SIP/3001
exten => 3000,hint,SIP/3000

in extensions.conf, to have Asterisk read these values from a database table.

Thank you.

I blieve you can by setting the priority to -1.

Do you mean don’t use the “hint” priority? Isn’t that how the whole monitoring thing works?

Yes. From what I remember hint = -1 when using real time (from what I remember). In fact when you do a reload of asterisk when you have hints in extensions.conf you see it loading with a prioroty of -1.
