I just updated to 11.7.0

When listing channels from command line I get:
Channel Location State Application(Data)

0 active channels
0 active calls
0 calls processed Privilege escalation protection disabled!
See https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/x/1gKfAQ for more details. Conference Bridge Name Users Marked Locked?

Looking that up, it says add to asterisk.conf
[options]
live_dangerously = yes

After doing this, and stopping and starting I
still get the message.

Whats up?

    I’m having the same issue, even with it set to yes and restarting Asterisk, it still give that warning.

    I appreciate that and I do understand why but that setting doesn’t work as described, it seems to do nothing.

    While we’re at it, what’s the recommended alternative method to replace using “asterisk -rx” in bash scripts now?

    cheers, Paul.

  • Apologies for replying to my own post but I since found this:

    https://issues.asterisk.org/jira/browse/ASTERISK-23084

    and after testing it turns out that even though asterisk -rx always shows the warning, the command is still executed so no where near as bad a problem as I initially thought.

    I guess the live_dangerously setting wont eventually have an affect on asterisk -rx (it doesn’t really make any sense to since if someone is already in as root then you are screwed!).

    cheers, Paul.
