Add Extension Programmatically

I was trying to add extension programatically. There I was facing some issues. My code was

$bootstrap_settings = array();
$bootstrap_settings['freepbx_auth'] = false;
if ([email protected]_once(getenv('FREEPBX_CONF') ? getenv('FREEPBX_CONF') : '/etc/freepbx.conf')) { 

$vars = array(
"extension" => 9876543200,
    "name" => "Test",
    "devinfo_secret" => "testing",
    "devinfo_mediaencryption" => "sdes",


And output

[[email protected] html]# php a.php
[FATAL] Fields are empty

Trace Back:

/var/www/html/admin/modules/core/Core.class.php:1389 die_freepbx()
 [0]: Fields are empty

I tried to add PJSIP extension but in GUI I was getting virtual device added.
I need to add media encryption also. Can anyone guide me?

Please state your version of freepbx. The guide you are following only works for 2.11

Freepbx Framework: 13.0.54
Core: 13.0.40

Can you guide me for recent version?

The 13 Bulk Handler module supports importing extensions via fwconsole arguments.


You made my day! Thanks a lot.

Hello @lgaetz ,

Is there a way to edit or delete an extension with the bulkimport flag?

Thank you,
