JSON API for YateSMSC Configuration

Request: set_node

This request is used to configure the SS7/SMPP/etc settings for a YateSMSC server.

The main parameters are:

  • node_type: "smsc"
  • ss7
  • local – information about the local node (the actual YateSMSC server that you are configuring). The information about the local node is organized in:
    • common – common settings for the network, but also equipment specific information
  • linksets – configure the linksets and links to the STP
  • gt_route – configure the GT routes table
  • smpp
  • listeners – define SMPP server listeners
  • clients – define clients’ authentication information
  • smsc - operational parameters that define the functioning of the SMSC
  • restart- boolean. Whether to restart now and apply settings sent in the same request or previously.
