Pbx_extension_helper: No application Monitor

Hi all,

in my configuration there is the following line:

same => n,Monitor(wav,inbound_from-${CALLERID(num)}_to-ext${EXTEN}dnid${CALLERID(dnid)}at-${STRFTIME(${EPOCH},%F%H-%S-%M)}${UNIQUEID},m) ; Start recording

This beast worked for several years but eventually stopped working. I believe that this happened with some version upgrade of Asterisk.

The error / warning shown in the CLI is like:

pbx.c:2928 pbx_extension_helper: No application ‘Monitor’ for extension (check-caller-reputation, s, 31)

I’ve used autoload, recompiled asterisk, updated to new version, no success.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks for help.


As of Asterisk 19 the res_monitor module is not built by default:

 * This module is no longer built by default in
   accordance with the Module Deprecation Policy.
   If you require this functionality you will need
   to enable it for building in menuselect. Note
   that in the future res_monitor will be removed.

This is documented in the UPGRADE.txt file.

You will have to go into menuselect and ensure it is enabled.

My fault - I overlooked that option completely. But as it is deprecated, I replaced the function with MixMonitor which does the job perfectly.

Many thanks for the help.
