Net::Magrathea - Perl interface to the Magrathea Telecom NTS API

VERSION ^

This document describes Net::Magrathea version 0.03

SYNOPSIS ^

    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use Net::Magrathea;
    
    my $ntsapi = Net::Magrathea->new(
        username => 'user',
        password => 'pass',
        debug    => 1,
    );
    
    my $index = 1;
    my $dest  = 'S:01224279484@sip.surevoip.co.uk';
    
    my $number = $ntsapi->allocate('01224______');
    
    $ntsapi->activate($number) if $ntsapi->success;
    
    $ntsapi->set( $number, $index, $dest ) if $ntsapi->success;
    
    $ntsapi->status($number) if $ntsapi->success;
    
    $ntsapi->user_info(
        $number, 'Suretec Systems Ltd., 24 Cormack Park,
        Rothienorman, Inverurie, AB51 8GL.'
    ) if $ntsapi->success;
    
    $ntsapi->deactivate($number) if $ntsapi->success;
    $ntsapi->quit;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a Perl interface allowing you to connect to and operate the Magrathea Telecom 'Number Translation Service' API.

INTERFACE ^

quit

Terminates the session. Should be called after the final command.

    $ntsapi->quit;

allocate

Attempt to allocate a phone number. The <number> can either be an entire number, or may include underscores, to indicate any digit is acceptable. This is the only command that accepts underscores as part of the <number> parameter (now allocate_ten also accepts underscores).

NOTE: This command does NOT reserve the number – you must issue an immediate activate command to ensure the number is allocated to your account and not available for allocation by others.

    $ntsapi->allocate('01224______');

Returns an allocated number.

activate

Activates a number obtained using the allocate command. This command must be used to finalise the reservation process.

    $ntsapi->allocate($number);

Result available via

    my $message = $ntsapi->result;

deactivate

Deactivate the specified number. The number will no longer operate when dialled.

The exact number must be entered; underscores are not permitted when using this command.

NOTE: If you deactivate a number it becomes available for others to allocate, so it cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to retrieve the number at a later date

    $ntsapi->deactivate($number);

Result available via

    my $message = $ntsapi->result;

reactivate

Reactivates a number that has previously been deactivated using the DEAC command (if it has not since been allocated by someone else).

    $ntsapi->reactivate($number);

Result available via

    my $message = $ntsapi->result;

status

Query the current status of the specified number. A successful reply contains the information about the number’s current settings.

    $ntsapi->status($number);

Result available via

    my $message = $ntsapi->result;

set

This command sets up destination for when the number is dialled.

    my $index = 1;
    my $dest  = 'S:01224279484@sip.surevoip.co.uk';

    $ntsapi->set( $number, $index, $dest ) if $ntsapi->success;

See the full NTS API docs for complete information (more than two pages).

user_info

This command has been added to enable storage of information about the user of the number.

    $ntsapi->user_info(
        $number, 'Suretec Systems Ltd., 24 Cormack Park, Rothienorman, 
                  Inverurie, AB51 8GL.'
        if $ntsapi->success;

feature

The FEAT command can be used to check, enable or disable a particular feature for an account.

NOTE: Not supported yet.

secure_pin

Set a PIN for the number.

NOTE: Not supported yet.

time_of_day_route

This command sets the destination usage by time of day, allowing (for advanced NTS only) multiple targets to be setup and configuration when each target is active.

NOTE: Not supported yet.

allocate_ten

This command has been provided to help locate ranges of ten numbers that are available for allocation. The syntax of the <number> parameter is identical to that of ALLO and the system will attempt to find a range of ten numbers (0 through to 9) that matches the passed <number> format.

NOTE: Not supported yet.

ported_numbers

NOTE: Not supported yet.

Control numbers that have been ported to Magrathea, if your NTSAPI account has been given permission to do so.

errormsg

Retrieve the last message from the NTS API

DIAGNOSTICS ^

The last message from the Magrathea session can be retrieved via

    print $ntsapi->errormsg

If you have set $ntsapi->debug(1) the session messages will be printed via print
