  • Viewing Call Logs
  • Downloading / deleting recordings
  • Viewing Call Queues
  • Viewing Conference Rooms
  • Adding or updating extensions

Our full API docs can be found via our API Documentation.

To authenticate, you'll just need to send X-Auth-Username and X-Auth-Password headers along with your request, using your normal Dial 9 account authentication.

You'll see in the below example a simple call and response when requesting a list of active calls using the appropriate API method:

The Request

$ curl https://manage.dial9.co.uk/api/v2/logs/active \
    -H "X-Auth-Username: joebloggs" \
    -H "X-Auth-Password: xxxyyyzzzz"

The Response

    "status":"success",
    "time":0.07,
    "flags":{},
    "data":
    [
        {
            "call_type":"outgoing",
            "duration":"00:00:18",
            "state":"Connected",
            "from":
                {
                    "type":"Extension",
                    "object":
                        {
                           "id":2902,
                            "name":"adamw",
                            "exten":"100"
                       }
                },
            "to":
                {
                    "type":"String",
                    "object":"44700123456"
