    Default Alpha Feature: API Access

    We've now opened up simple API access in an Alpha stage.

    This allows very advanced users to pass commands to the VOIPo system to control various features on their account just like the Control By SMS feature. You can use this to write your own scripts and programs to interact with us.

    Right now, we added the basic commands and it's in a simple format. We'd like to get some feedback on it and if it's a popular feature we'll likely improve it so that it's a full SOAP based API. With this version, we just wanted to give you guys that were asking for it something basic to work with.

    We can pretty easily add any commands to it and would like some feedback on what you'd like to see added to it.

    API Activation

    To use the service, simply go to BETA - API in vPanel. There you just need to Enable it and set an API password. We recommend that this be different than your account password.

    Once you've done this, you can begin passing commands.

    Do Not Disturb (DND)

    Action: dnd

    Arguments: vmail, busy, off

    Example: api.voipo.com/?username=9491230000&password=test&action=dnd&argu ments[]=busy

    Failover

    Action: fail

    Arguments: 10DigitNumber, vmail

    Example: api.voipo.com/?username=9491230000&password=test&action=fail&arg uments[]=busy

    Call Forwarding

    Action: forward

    Arguments: 10DigitNumber, off

    Example: api.voipo.com/?username=9491230000&password=test&action=fwd&argu ments[]=off

    The forum software keeps manipulating the example URLs so I had to take off the http:// on the front of them so it wouldn't think they were a link and truncate them.

    Hmmm. I swear that wasn't working earlier.

    The geek factor is impressive. But I wouldn't be surprised if I am in the minority by saying, I would have preferred to see a more flexible, updated 'Forwarding' feature rather than another way to activate a Basic Forwarding feature with limited options. Ma Bell Forwarding from the seventies had greater flexibility.

    As I stated on other threads, I feel a basic no answer or a busy call forward are options that would be very useful.

    Is anyone using this yet?

    If you are, you probably have a basic idea of how it works (manipulating database entries), so you have a basic idea of what's possible.

    What features would you guys want to see added to it?
