    Default SMS Api

    I see in the vPanel that there is an option to do SMS via JSON, however I can't manage to find any more information about this.
    Any one have information or the API docs?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    The SMS service is designed to be peer to peer communication only and we're not contractually able to offer it in an API format since that would make it too easy to be used for bulk messaging or sending ads.

    We may consider adding a bulk service in the future, but for now with it being for peer to peer communication only, we can't really offer an API for it.

    It looks like just the notifications can be sent this way, do you have documentation on that?
    Thanks!

    I'll try to clarify my question it looks like these are the available options:
    1. Phone Number
    2. Email
    3. online only
    4. POST/URL/JSON - API
    5. POST/URL/XML - API
    6. SIP URL


    How do we use the last 3?

    Please contact support to see if those options are active/available for receiving messages. They may be placeholders by the developers, but support can clarify.

    I wanted to share the solution to the question.

    In the field for the url point it to a file with content below:

    For JSON
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $input 
    json_decode(file_get_contents("php://input"));
    $message_id $input->Message->MessageId;
    $time $input->Message->Time;
    $from $input->Message->From;
    $to $input->Message->To;
    $body $input->Message->Body;
    for XML
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $input 
    file_get_contents("php://input");
    $xml = new SimpleXMLElement($input);

    $message_id = (string)$xml->Message->MessageId;
    $time = (string)$xml->Message->Time;
    $from = (string)$xml->Message->From;
    $to = (string)$xml->Message->To;
    $body = (string)$xml->Message->Body;
    Hopefully others will find this useful!
