Solution to Asterisk CLI Error: No such command ‘originate’

by Jon on October 10th, 2015

Have you tried to use the originate command from the Asterisk CLI only to get the following error?

asterisk*CLI> originate
No such command 'originate' (type 'core show help originate' for other possible commands)

Well I just got this for the first time recently and it took me far too long to figure out the problem so I wanted to share with everyone.

Turns out the syntax of the command has changed recently and the CLI now requires users to put channel in front of originate.

Here is an example of how it works:

asterisk*CLI> channel originate SIP/102 extension *97@internal
