8MS Cloud API

8MS Cloud API is an add-on service to the 8MS Cloud platform. It allows your company to streamline its toll-free number (TFN) provisioning flow and integrate the power of 8MS into your in-house IT infrastructure.

The API consists of high-level 8MS system commands that make the integration with SMS/800 much faster, easier, and more automated:

  • BatchCopyRecord – copies a customer record from a given toll-free number or template and sends a record change for a group of other TFNs. This command provides the ability to apply a template record to a large set of toll-free numbers.
  • BatchDisconnect – tells SMS/800 when to schedule a disconnect of the accompanying active numbers.
  • BatchNumberQuery – retrieves the administrative information associated with a group of numbers. Typically, the administrative data returned includes the RespOrg of the number and its status (working, etc.).
  • BatchNumberRetrieve – is used to retrieve numbers from SMS/800 into the local 8MS database.
  • BatchNumberSpare – is used to spare a group of previously reserved (or disconnected) numbers.
  • MultiChangeResporg – is used to change the RespOrg of TFNs.
  • Disconnect – schedules a disconnect of the accompanying active number.
  • NumberQuery – retrieves the administrative information associated with a TFN. Typically, the administrative data returned includes the RespOrg of the number and its status (working, etc.).
  • NumberSpare – is used to spare a previously reserved (or disconnected) number.
  • Search – searches TFNs in the SMS/800 spare pool.
  • Reserve – reserves TFNs from the SMS/800 spare pool on your company’s RespOrg ID.
  • NumberHistory – looks at the SMS/800 history associated with any TFN. SMS/800 maintains a database of the change history of all TFNs. Any time a change is made, an entry is made noting the date/time of the change, the login ID used to make the change, a RespOrg change that may have resulted, and/or a change to the status of the number.
  • GetAvails – this is the same easy-to-use API command that powers CSF’s 800ForAll.com site. It retrieves a list of TFNs that are currently spare. The search may be restricted to specific Numbering Plan Areas (NPAs) or TFNs. SMS/800 wildcard patterns (* and &) may be used in the toll-free number field. Start and end dates may be used to restrict the search even more.

8MS Cloud API includes additional API extensions for CPRGen, LCRGen, Carrier Express, and TeXT.
