SOAP/Web Services

These web services provide access to the core functionality of the messaging system allowing you to create your own applications that utilize text messaging and email.

2sms provide two types of web services for you to use: Simple and Complex.

Both of these contain the same functionality but require either the use of simple data types (e. g. string and integer) or complex data types (e. g. date/time and array).

To see code samples in SOAP/Web Services, click the Service Description for each element.

Note:

Any references to null in the documentation should be replaced by Nothing if you are programming in VB.NET.

Simple Web Services

Simple web services provide access to the core functionality of the messaging system using only simple data types. Each of the web services below expose a logical subset of our system allowing you to only connect to the functionality you require. This in turn means that it is clear and logical as to which aspects of the system are being used by any piece of client code.

Throughout these web services any ReportCSV output parameters will be populated with a CSV standard string in the following format:

  • The first record contains a comma separated list of column names without double-quotes.
  • Following this all columns are delimited by double-quote characters and separated by a comma.
  • Each row is separated by a single line feed, (0x0A).

This CSV standard string is in the same as that returned from the main web site. The following is an example of a CSV standard string:

First Name,Last Name,Email Address,Current Balance,Off Peak Balance

“Fred”,”Bob”,”Fred.Bob@Test.com”,”10.0″,”0.0″

“John”,”Smith”,”John.Smith@Test.com”,”15.0″,”0.0″

It should also be noted that any date/time strings must be in the format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.
