Can we control NETANN conferencing with REST API?

  • Hello! I have been using the NETANN built in conference server to have SIP clients create and join a conference by sending an INVITE to conf=1234@host . The problem I am running into is having the "conference host" end the whole conference. Currently everyone has to leave on their own, I am trying to leverage the REST API to end the conference call, but it shows no conferences, tried using NETANN for an appid but then I get a returned 403. If I create a conference first using the REST API, I can then see it.

    Is this possible?

    Also, if I switch to creating a conference using the REST API first, is it possible to have callers automatically join by sending a SIP INVITE to the XMS with some type of string in the URI? I have only seen having the callers send an INVITE to the XMS, and then use the REST API to add them to the conference I have previously created.

    My main goal is to get 3/4 SIP parties in an audio/video conference, and have the conference host end the conference when its over ending all the calls. 

    Thanks,

    Chris

  • Hi Chris - unfortunately you are not able to mix the media control API's therefore you'll need to use the RESTFul API throughout. When using the RESTAPI you'll need to establish the eventing poll that will trigger upon call arrival to then answer and add the participant to the conference (no way in REST to automatically do this).  

    Hope this helps
