Does anyone have any idea about this?

However checking the documentation of the “sip_msg_apply_changes” (https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio/blob/master/src/core/msg_translator.c#L3342-L3345 <https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio/blob/master/src/core/msg_translator.c#L3342-L3345>) I can see that it can only be executed from request and reply routes. That seems overly restrictive. Can someone shine some light on why is that and whether it’s safe to patch this part of the code to allow function execution from  BRANCH_FAILURE_ROUTE as well?
