[App_rpt-users] Calling a shell script

I have a need to call a shell script from a DTMF function. 

An internet search finds this message in the archive : Calling a script message 
So based on what I found there I did this: 

Added to extensions.conf: 
exten => 1,1,System(/etc/W3SBA/utils/drillactive) ; Configure for EmComm Drill 

And in rpt.conf: 
8495=autopatchup,context=call-bash-script,farenddisconnect=1 ;84951 - Set up for EmComm Drill 
It works as is. 
But, is this still the way to do this? Or is there a "better" way to make a call to the system?
