    The *5 dial code option is most useful to suppress CLI on individual calls but there appears to be no provision to suppress CLI for calls from nominated extensions - or even the system as a whole.

    Could I suggest that any non-null entry with a 'value' of 0 in the Outbound Caller ID field could act as an indicator to the PBX. Entering 'Private', 'Anonymous', 'Withheld', '***' or even '0' (or any pre-defined text) in the Outbound Caller ID field could signify to the system to suppress the CLI exactly as *5 does at present - but for all calls from that extension. This approach could also be replicated to the Outbound Caller ID field in the SIP Trunk definition to be applied system wide.
